Embryonic germ (EG) cells are undifferentiated stem cells isolated from cultured primordial germ cells (PGC). To date, EG cells have been isolated only in the mouse. Murine EG cells share several characteristics with embryonic stem (ES) cells, including morphology, pluripotency, and the capacity for germline transmission. We report here the isolation of(More)
Primordial germ cells (PGC) collected from the genital ridge of Day 25 porcine embryos were cultured on STO feeder cells in medium with or without supplemented growth factors. The effects on porcine PGC proliferation of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), LIF + stem cell factor (SCF) or LIF + SCF + basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), growth factors shown(More)
Levobupivacaine is a long-acting amide local anesthetic that intrinsically produces vasoconstriction both in vivo and in vitro. Levobupivacaine increases intracellular calcium concentrations ([Ca(2+)](i)) in vascular smooth muscle cells. The goals of this in vitro study were to investigate whether levobupivacaine-induced contraction is associated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of UAE for symptomatic uterine fibroids on ovarian reserve based on AMH. STUDY DESIGN This was a retrospective study conducted between March 2011 and October 2014. All women underwent UAE. At baseline and at the 3-month and 12-month follow-up visits, serum anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH), follicle stimulating hormone (FSH),(More)
BACKGROUND To determine the frequency and predictive impact of ROS1 rearrangements on treatment outcomes in never-smoking patients with lung adenocarcinoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS We concurrently analyzed ROS1 and ALK rearrangements and mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR), and KRAS in 208 never smokers with lung adenocarcinoma. ROS1 and(More)
The objective of this study was to determine whether stage-specific embryonic antigen-1, a cellular marker commonly used to identify murine undifferentiated embryonic cells, is also a useful marker for bovine pluripotent cells. Expression of stage-specific embryonic antigen-1 was examined by indirect immunohistochemistry on bovine preimplantation embryos(More)
BACKGROUND Previous studies identified clinical and physiologic factors of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) that are related to an increased risk of mortality. But there are few studies about histologic and molecular approach. OBJECTIVE We investigated whether the C-reactive protein (CRP), fibroblastic foci, phosphorylated Smad2/3 (p-Smad2/3), tumor(More)
Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a frequent complication of liver transplantation and is associated with increased mortality. We identified the incidence and modifiable risk factors for AKI after living-donor liver transplantation (LDLT) and constructed risk scoring models for AKI prediction. We retrospectively reviewed 538 cases of LDLT. Multivariate logistic(More)
Perioperative risk factors were identified for acute kidney injury (AKI) defined by the RIFLE criteria (RIFLE = risk, injury, failure, loss, end stage) after surgery on the thoracic aorta with cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in this case-control study. A retrospective review was completed for 702 patients who underwent surgery on the thoracic aorta with CPB. A(More)
OBJECTIVE ThinPrep (TP), one of the Food and Drug Administration-approved liquid-based cytology (LBC) preparations, is widely used for gynaecological and non-gynaecological cytology samples. A unique physical artefact caused by the compression at the periphery in TP slides has not been adequately evaluated to date. METHODS We processed four established(More)
