There is a general agreement on the Nestin re-expression in reactive astrocytes, but its modalities differ among experimental animal species and between the latter and human material. In a series of 40 surgical specimens, including gliomas, vascular malformations, abscesses and angiomas, the glial reaction has been studied by immunohistochemistry and(More)
Nestin is a marker of early stages of neurocytogenesis. It has been studied in 50 neuroepithelial tumors, mostly gliomas of different malignancy grades, by immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, immunoblotting, and confocal microscopy and compared with GFAP and Vimentin. As an early marker of differentiation, Nestin is almost not expressed in diffuse(More)
AIM Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) migrate in response to chemokines and possess extensive tropism for experimental glioma. Antitumor effects have been reported following intracranial and intravenous administration of gene-modified MSCs. Among the different routes for cell transplant, the intraventricular (IV) approach found very little employment in(More)
