To test the involvement of histone deacetylases (HDACs) activity in endothelial lineage progression, we investigated the effects of HDAC inhibitors on endothelial progenitors cells (EPCs) derived from umbilical cord blood (UCB). Adherent EPCs, that expressed the endothelial marker proteins (PCAM-1, CD105, CD133, and VEGFR(2)) revealed by flow cytometry were(More)
Unequivocal international guidelines regarding the diagnosis and management of patients with acute appendicitis are lacking. The aim of the consensus meeting 2015 of the EAES was to generate a European guideline based on best available evidence and expert opinions of a panel of EAES members. After a systematic review of the literature by an international(More)
PURPOSE To assess the value of magnetic resonance in the diagnosis of pancreatobiliary ductal system changes. MATERIAL AND METHODS The study included 103 patients (44 men, 59 women, mean age 57, age range 1 month - 91 years) with pancreatobiliary duct changes. The patients underwent a routine liver and pancreas MR imaging that included a MR(More)
Wharton's jelly (WJ) is a rich source of multiple-lineage differentiating cells, recently proposed for cell replacement therapy. However, their ability to integrate into the cardiac tissue has not been elucidated, yet. We employed in vitro cardiac transplantation models to investigate the capacity of a novel population of human WJ-derived mesenchymal stem(More)
The umbilical cord blood derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) contribute to vascular regeneration in experimental models of ischaemia. However, their ability to participate in cardiovascular tissue restoration has not been elucidated yet. We employed a novel coculture system to investigate whether human EPCs have the capacity to integrate into living(More)
This paper reports the synthesis and characterization of amoxicillin- functionalized magnetite nanostructures (Fe3O4@AMO), revealing and discussing several biomedical applications of these nanomaterials. Our results proved that 10 nm Fe3O4@AMO nanoparticles does not alter the normal cell cycle progression of cultured diploid cells, and an in vivo murine(More)
Cinnamomum verum-functionalized Fe3O4 nanoparticles of 9.4 nm in size were laser transferred by matrix assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE) technique onto gastrostomy tubes (G-tubes) for antibacterial activity evaluation toward Gram positive and Gram negative microbial colonization. X-ray diffraction analysis of the nanoparticle powder showed a(More)
This review highlights and discusses the impact of nanotechnology on the inhibition of microbial colonization and biofilm development on modified surface prosthetic devices. In the first part of the paper the current status of infections related to prosthetic devices and the inquiries resulting from the increased number of patients with these infections are(More)
Mesenchymal stem cells isolated from Wharton’s Jelly have demonstrated an excellent differentiation potential into the endothelial lineage. We hypothesize that endothelial progenitor cells differentiated from Wharton’s Jelly-derived mesenchymal stem cells have the potential to repopulate a decellularized vascular bed employed as a biological scaffold.
