Conversion of Human Umbilical Cord Mesenchymal Stem Cells in Wharton's Jelly to Dopaminergic Neurons In Vitro: Potential Therapeutic Application for Parkinsonism
Human mesenchymal stem cells isolated from Wharton's jelly of the umbilical cord were induced to transform into dopaminergic neurons in vitro through stepwise culturing in neuron‐conditioned medium,Expand
Transplantation of Human Umbilical Mesenchymal Stem Cells from Wharton's Jelly after Complete Transection of the Rat Spinal Cord
Background Human umbilical mesenchymal stem cells (HUMSCs) isolated from Wharton's jelly of the umbilical cord can be easily obtained and processed compared with embryonic or bone marrow stem cells.Expand
Differences between arthroplasty and anterior cervical fusion in two-level cervical degenerative disc disease
PurposeAlthough arthroplasty is an accepted option for two-level disease, there is a paucity of data regarding outcomes of two-level cervical arthroplasty. The current study was designed to determineExpand
Resveratrol neuroprotective effects during focal cerebral ischemia injury via nitric oxide mechanism in rats.
BACKGROUND Our prior study showed that resveratrol could suppress infarct volume and exert neuroprotective effect on rats subjected to focal cerebral ischemia (FCI) injury. Recently, it has beenExpand
Epidemiology of cervical spondylotic myelopathy and its risk of causing spinal cord injury: a national cohort study.
OBJECT This study aimed to determine the age- and sex-specific incidence of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) and its associated risk of causing subsequent spinal cord injury (SCI). METHODSExpand
Gait Analysis of Adult Paraplegic Rats after Spinal Cord Repair
This study presents a novel detailed method of analysis of rat gait and uses this method to demonstrate recovery of forward locomotion patterns in adult rats made paraplegic by surgical spinal cordExpand
Neuroprotection of glial cell line‐derived neurotrophic factor in damaged spinal cords following contusive injury
Glial cell line‐derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) acts as a potent survival factor for many neuronal populations, including spinal motoneurons, indicating the therapeutic promise of GDNF forExpand
Salvage Surgery for Recurrent Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
Objective To evaluate the efficacy of salvage surgery in the treatment of recurrent nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) at the primary site.
A New Surgical Technique That Allows Proximodistal Regeneration of 5-HT Fibers after Complete Transection of the Rat Spinal Cord
Shortening of the spinal column has been regarded as one possible method to obtain cord-to-cord apposition after total transection of the spinal column. However, to further improve regenerativeExpand
Dynamic stabilization for degenerative spondylolisthesis: Evaluation of radiographic and clinical outcomes
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the dynamic stabilization system in degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis. METHODS This retrospective study included 38 patients (mean age 63.7 years) with one- or two-levelExpand
