Prevailing opinion suggests that only substances up to 64 nm in diameter can move at appreciable rates through the brain extracellular space (ECS). This size range is large enough to allow diffusion of signaling molecules, nutrients, and metabolic waste products, but too small to allow efficient penetration of most particulate drug delivery systems and(More)
Stem cells can be obtained from women’s menstrual blood derived from the endometrium. The cells display stem cell markers such as Oct-4, SSEA-4, Nanog, and c-kit (CD117), and have the potent ability to differentiate into various cell types, including the heart, nerve, bone, cartilage, and fat. There has been no evidence of teratoma, ectopic formation, or(More)
Schizophrenia (SZ) is considered to be a multifactorial brain disorder with defects involving many biochemical pathways. Patients with SZ show variable responses to current pharmacological treatments of SZ because of the heterogeneity of this disorder. Stress has a significant role in the pathophysiological pathways and therapeutic responses of SZ. Atypical(More)
A reversed phase HPLC method was developed for the determination of synephrine in Zhishi Injection using methanol-water (1:1) containing sodium 1-pentane sulfonate (3.5%, G/V) and acetic acid (0.1%, V/V) as the mobile phase with UV detoction at 275nm. Linear response was obtained in the range of 8-64 micrograms/ml (r = 0.9998), the absolute recovery was(More)
The effects of calcitonin (CT) on the proliferation and membrane fluidity of human osteoblast-like cells line OS-732 were compared with the effect of 1,25(OH)2D3. The rate of DNA synthesis, cell proliferation, cell cycle and membrane fluidity of OS-732 cells were observed. Results showed that 1IU/ml CT stimulated cell proliferation and DNA synthesis. The(More)
