AIMS To assess the biodistribution of bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMNC) delivered by different routes in patients with subacute middle cerebral artery ischemic stroke. PATIENTS & METHODS This was a nonrandomized, open-label Phase I clinical trial. After bone marrow harvesting, BMMNCs were labeled with technetium-99m and intra-arterially or(More)
Intravascular delivery of cells has been increasingly used in stroke models and clinical trials. We compared the biodistribution and therapeutic effects of bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMCs) delivered by intra-arterial (IA) or intravenous (IV) injection after cortical ischemia. For the biodistribution analyses, BMMCs were labeled with (99m)Technetium(More)
BACKGROUND It is not well understood whether age impacts transcranial Doppler (TCD) mean flow velocities (MFVs) in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) with or without delayed cerebral ischemia (DCI). The aim of our study was to analyze the behavior of TCD MFV during the first 7 days after SAH in patients of different ages and correlate(More)
BACKGROUND Fever is commonly observed in patients who have had aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), and it has been associated with the occurrence of delayed cerebral ischemia and worse outcomes in previous studies. Frequently, fever is not the result of bacterial infections, and distinction between infection-related fever and fever secondary to brain(More)
