BACKGROUND This is a preliminary report on successful results obtained during treatment of two patients with chronic spinal cord injury. The therapeutic approach was based on the generation of controlled inflammatory activity at the injury site that induced a microenvironment for the subsequent administration of autologous, BM-driven transdifferentiated(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The purposes of this study were to evaluate the tolerance, efficacy and safety of isovolemic erythrocytapheresis (EA) in nonanemic patients with hereditary hemochromatosis (HH), and to assess the usefulness of recombinant human erythropoietin (rHuEPO) associated with EA to reduce treatment duration.

BACKGROUND The degree of post-injury inflammation of the damaged area of a spinal cord is the main difference between the natural successful repair in inferior vertebrates and failure in superior vertebrates. The treatment of rats with anti-myelin lymphocytes after experimental spinal cord injury induces their functional recovery. On the other hand,(More)

CONTEXT AND OBJECTIVE: Even if precursor lesions of cervical cancer are properly treated, there is a risk of persistence or recurrence. The aim here was to quantify the risks of persistence of high-grade intraepithelial squamous lesions, one and two years after cervical electrosurgical excisional treatment with positive margins. DESIGN AND SETTING:(More)
2556 Background: Only a small part of the total cell population of a malignancy has the potential to grow and regenerate the total tumor mass. The rest are only differentiated forms of those stem cells. This biologic characteristic seems to be responsible for the failure to achieve long term remission for several peptide based vaccines. METHOD To overcome(More)
