Primary cell cultures derived from human myocardial explants were obtained and characterized. The explant cultures contained cardiac stem cells (c-kit+; ~4%), microvascular cells (endothelial cells and pericytes), fibroblasts, and myofibroblasts. It was demonstrated that culturing of cardiac cells in cardiospheres did not promote enrichment of the cell(More)
New chiral heterocyclic compounds with a hexahydro-2H-chromene framework were synthesized by reactions of (1R,2R,6S)-3-methyl-6-(prop-1-en-2-yl)cyclohex-3-ene-1,2-diol with aromatic aldehydes in the presence of montmorillonite clay. The analgesic activity of the compounds was studied in vivo. The majority of these compounds showed significant analgesic(More)
Catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) is a novel invasive approach in the treatment of resistant hypertension. It is considered a minimally invasive and safe procedure which, as shown by initial experimental and clinical trials, is able not only to reduce blood pressure but also to modify its risk factors by modulation of autonomic nervous system. Recently(More)
The study examined the effect of VEGF and erythropoietin on proliferative and migratory activities of skin fibroblasts and multipotent mesenchymal stromal cells of human adipose tissue. VEGF stimulated proliferation and migration of fi broblasts, but produced no significant effect on functional activity of multipotent mesenchymal stem cells. Erythropoietin(More)
Rat pluripotent stem cells, embryonic stem cells (ESCs), and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as mouse and human ones have a great potential for studying mammalian early development, disease modeling, and evaluation of regenerative medicine approaches. However, data on pluripotency realization and self-renewal maintenance in rat cells are still very(More)
We studied the phenotype and cytokine production in peripheral blood mononuclear cells mobilized from the bone marrow after administration of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and the relationship of these parameters with clinical efficacy of autologous intramyocardial injection of donor cells in patients with chronic heart failure. We found(More)
We developed a protocol for preparing cardiac cell culture from rat heart enriched with regional stem cells based on clonogenic properties and proliferation in culture in a medium with low serum content. Experiments on WAG rats with experimental ischemic myocardial damage showed that implantation of autologous regional stem cells into the left ventricle(More)
Administration of granulocyte CSF preparation to patients with chronic heart failure produced a hemostimulating effect and increased the content of leukocytes and neutrophils in the peripheral blood. Granulocyte CSF induced mobilization of bone marrow progenitor cells into the peripheral blood. The content of hemopoietic CD34+ progenitor cells, which(More)
The effect of cell culturing protocol with various adhesion proteins and different culture time on the profile of cytokine and growth factors produced by endothelial progenitor cells harvested after mobilization with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor was examined in patients with chronic heart failure. The endothelial progenitor cells cultured on(More)
Endothelial and smooth muscle cells are considered promising resources for regenerative medicine and cell replacement therapy. It has been shown that both types of cells are heterogeneous depending on the type of vessels and organs in which they are located. Therefore, isolation of endothelial and smooth muscle cells from tissues relevant to the area of(More)
