A sexual dimorphism in liver inflammation and repair was previously demonstrated. Its cellular dissection in the course of acute liver injury (ALI) was explored. BALB/c mice were treated with carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) by intraperitoneal injection and sacrificed after 3, 5 and 8 days. Histological and hepatic cell population analyses were performed. The(More)
Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) are complex multi-factorial diseases with increasing incidence worldwide but their treatment is far from satisfactory. Unconventional strategies have consequently been investigated, proposing the use of cells as an effective alternative approach to IBD. In the present study we examined the protective potential of(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocytes and stem cells transplantation may be an alternative to liver transplantation in acute or chronic liver disease. We aimed to evaluate the therapeutic potential of mesenchymal stem cells from human umbilical cord (UCMSCs), a readily available source of mesenchymal stem cells, in the CCl4-induced acute liver injury model. METHODS(More)
Adult stem cells represent the self-renewing progenitors of numerous body tissues, and they are currently classified according to their origin and differentiation ability. In recent years, the research on stem cells has expanded enormously and holds therapeutic promises for many patients suffering from currently disabling diseases. This paper focuses on the(More)
