The effect of chronic nicotine exposure on the cutaneous neurogenic flare response was investigated non-invasively in rats. Axon reflexes were evoked by transdermal iontophoresis of acetylcholine, and resultant changes in skin microvascular blood flux were measured by laser Doppler flowmetry. Rats given five injections of nicotinesulphate (1 mg kg-1 i.p.)(More)
CD133+ stem cells represent a promising subpopulation for innovative cell-based therapies in cardiovascular regeneration. Several clinical trials have shown remarkable beneficial effects following their intramyocardial transplantation. Yet, the purification of CD133+ stem cells is typically performed in centralized clean room facilities using semi-automatic(More)
The current White paper summarizes the discussions and exchange of experiences during the first European Interdisciplinary Summit on Cell-Based ATMPs held in Vienna, Austria, May 02-03, 2013. The meeting was supported by the Research Networking Programme REMEDIC (regenerative medicine) funded by the European Science Foundation and by the British Medical(More)
BACKGROUND For the last decade continuous efforts have been made to translate regenerative cell therapy protocols in the cardiovascular field from 'bench to bedside'. Successful clinical introduction, supporting safety, and feasibility of this new therapeutic approach, led to the initiation of the German, Phase III, multicenter trial - termed the PERFECT(More)
Chronic nicotine exposure enhances axon reflexes in adult rats. Since smoking mothers expose their infants to nicotine, this study investigated whether late gestational and or lactational maternal nicotine exposure affects neonatal axon reflexes. Osmotic pumps, implanted subcutaneously in adult female rats, delivered either nicotine (5 mg kg-1 day-1) or(More)
Both stem cell chemokine stromal cell-derived factor-1α (SDF-1α) and extracellular nucleotides such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) are increased in ischemic myocardium. Since ATP has been reported to influence cell migration, we analysed the migratory response of bone marrow cells towards a combination of SDF-1 and ATP. Total nucleated cells (BM-TNCs) were(More)
The SCE-inducing effects of the indirectly acting mutagens cyclophosphamide (CP), dimethylnitrosamine (DMN) and aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) were analysed in hepatocyte (hpc)/mammalian cell coculture systems with regard to the importance of the hpc density. V79 cells and human lymphocytes served as target cells. For all 3 compounds steadily increasing genetic(More)
The departments of Medical Psychology, Psychosomatics and Psychotherapy developed an interdisciplinary longitudinal curriculum in order to coach medical students for the whole length of their medical education. Experiences from the first four undergraduate semesters are reported. 46 students (33 females, 13 males), mean age 22.3 +/- 2.6 years, attended 60(More)
