Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common disorder that considerably reduces the quality of life and productivity of patients. Chromogranin A (CgA) is a common marker for endocrine cells. CgA cell density has been reported to be reduced in the duodenum and colon of IBS patients. This study was undertaken to investigate CgA cell density in the ileum of(More)
Biologic and therapeutic advances in melanoma brain metastasis are hampered by the paucity of reproducible and predictive animal models. In this work, we developed a robust model of brain metastasis that empowers quantitative tracking of cellular dissemination and tumor progression. Human melanoma cells labeled with superparamagnetic iron oxide(More)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common chronic gastrointestinal disorder, which considerably reduces the quality of life of patients and represents an economic burden to society. In previous studies, the density of serotonin‑expressing cells in the rectum of IBS patients did not differ from that of control subjects. The present study was undertaken to(More)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a common chronic gastrointestinal disorder, which represents an economic burden to society and considerably reduces the quality of life of patients. In a previous study, the density of serotonin cells in the ileum of IBS patients was lower compared with control subjects. The present study aimed to further investigate the(More)
Animal models are required for research regarding the pathogenesis and efficacy of anti-inflammatory agents in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS)-induced colitis closely mimics Crohn's disease. The present study was undertaken in order to determine the reliability of following the inflammatory course of TNBS-induced(More)
Endoscopy is an important tool in the diagnosis, follow-up and management of several gastrointestinal diseases. In experimental studies, the course and progression of gastrointestinal lesions are followed by sacrificing animals at specific time intervals and the disease is usually assessed postmortem. This approach has several disadvantages, including the(More)
