The first two human embryonic stem cell lines (VAL-1 and VAL-2) have been derived in Spain with long-term cryopreserved embryos under animal-free conditions. In the first series, 40 human embryos that had been cryopreserved at day 2 of development were thawed after >5 years. A derivation efficiency of 5% per frozen embryo or 12.5% per blastocyst was(More)
AIM The diagnostic accuracy of the faecal immunochemical test (FIT) at a 100 ng/ml threshold for colorectal cancer (CRC) was compared with National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) referral criteria. METHOD A multicentre, prospective, blind study of diagnostic tests was carried out(More)
In this work we present a predator-prey model that incorporates individual behavior of the predators. A classical Lotka-Volterra model with self-limiting prey describes the predator-prey interaction. Predator individuals can use two behavioral tactics to dispute a prey when they meet, the classical hawk and dove tactics. Each individual can use both tactics(More)
A total of 184 human embryos, frozen for >5 years, were donated; informed consent was obtained according to Spanish law 45/2003. Survival rate was 40% and three out of 24 blastocysts (12.5%) developed into putative hESC lines, named VAL-3, VAL-4, and VAL-5. The derivation process was performed on microbiologically tested and irradiated human foreskin(More)
The chemical and microbial characteristics as well as the flavor and aroma of Los Pedroches cheese made using aqueous extracts of Cynara cardunculus L. flowers were compared with those of cheeses manufactured with extracts of Cynara humilis L. throughout ripening. The two thistle species assayed were found to have no appreciable effect on the moisture, fat,(More)
BACKGROUND Feeder cells are frequently used for the early-stage of derivation and culture of human embryonic stem cell (hESC) lines. METHODS We established a conditionally immortalized human foreskin fibroblast line that secreted basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF). These cells were used as feeder cells for hESC culture and induced pluripotent stem(More)
We analyse an age-structured model of telomere loss in a proliferating cell population. The cell population is divided into telomere classes, which shorten each round of division. The model consists of a nonlinear system of partial differential equations for the telomere classes. We prove that if the highest telomere class is exempted from mortality, then(More)
Derivation of human embryonic stem cell lines has been a remarkable scientific achievement during the last decade. Human embryonic stem cells are regarded as an unlimited cell source for replacement therapy in regenerative medicine. Clearly, the scientific community requires proper derivation, characterization, and registration with the purpose of making(More)
