Progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta and the following reduction in striatal dopamine cause Parkinson's disease (PD). Transplantation of dopamine-producing cells into the striatum is a proposed treatment modality. In this report, we describe a model experiment assessing the effectiveness of mouse embryonic stem (ES)(More)
AIMS To investigate the efficacy of embryonic stem cell-derived neural stem cells (NSCs) for spinal cord injury (SCI) in mice and whether a combination treatment with thyroid hormone provides a more effective ES cell-based therapy. METHODS Nestin-positive NSCs were induced from undifferentiated mouse ES cells by a step-by-step culture and used as grafts.(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the present study was to examine the efficacy of transplantation of mouse embryonic stem (ES) into Parkinson's disease (PD) model mice as well as the necessity of immunosuppression in allogeneic donor-host combinations. MATERIALS AND METHODS ES cells, derived from SvJ129 strain mice, were differentiated into tyrosine hydroxylase(More)
Spontaneous spinal epidural hematomas (SSEH) are relatively rare clinical entities and associated with coagulopathies, tumors, or vascular malformation. In addition, these are often neurosurgical emergencies; therefore, prompt diagnosis and treatment are paramount. We reported a case of an 87-year-old woman with spontaneous cervical epidural hematoma. She(More)
