INTRODUCTION Recent evidence suggests that the implantation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells improves peripheral nerve regeneration. In this study we aimed to investigate whether adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) can be used for peripheral nerve repair. MATERIAL AND METHODS In a rat model, nerve regeneration was evaluated across a 15 mm(More)
This study aimed to evaluate whether combination therapy of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) transplantation and chondroitinase ABC (ChABC) treatment further enhances axonal regeneration and functional recovery after acellular nerve allograft repair of the sciatic nerve gap in rats. Eight Sprague–Dawley rats were used as nerve donors, and 32 Wistar rats(More)
The objective of the paper is to evaluate the effect of acellular nerve allografts (ANA) seeded with Schwann cells to promote nerve regeneration after bridging the sciatic nerve defects of rats and to discuss its acting mechanisms. Schwann cells were isolated from neonatal Wistar rats. In vitro Schwann cells were microinjected into acellular nerve(More)
OBJECTIVES To observe the effect of ultrashortwave (USW) therapy on nerve regeneration after acellular nerve allografts(ANA) repairing the sciatic nerve gap of rats and discuss its acting mechanisms. METHODS Sixteen Wistar rats weighing 180-220 g were randomly divided into four groups with four rats in each group: normal control group; acellular group(More)
Our former study demonstrated that Krüppel-like Factor 7 (KLF7) is a transcription factor that stimulates axonal regeneration after peripheral nerve injury. Currently, we used a gene therapy approach to overexpress KLF7 in Schwann cells (SCs) and assessed whether KLF7-transfected SCs graft could promote sciatic nerve regeneration. SCs were transfected by(More)
BACKGROUD Ovarian transplantation is a useful method for preserving the fertility of young women with cancer who undergo radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) is use to protect transplanted ovarian tissues from ischemia injury through promoting revascularization after transplantation, but the side effect of high level FSH is(More)
The present study aimed to evaluate the molecular mechanisms underlying combinatorial bone marrow stromal cell (BMSC) transplantation and chondroitinase ABC (Ch-ABC) therapy in a model of acellular nerve allograft (ANA) repair of the sciatic nerve gap in rats. Sprague Dawley rats (n=24) were used as nerve donors and Wistar rats (n=48) were randomly divided(More)
