An autoimmune-mediated mechanism has been proposed for several pediatric movement disorders. In a three-center (Brown, Yale, and Johns Hopkins) collaborative effort, serum antineuronal antibodies (ANAb) were measured by use of ELISA or immunohistochemical techniques on 35 children (mean age 11.4 years) with Tourette syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity(More)
BACKGROUND Formation of long-term memories is critically dependent on extracellular-regulated kinase (ERK) signaling. Activation of the ERK pathway by the sequential recruitment of mitogen-activated protein kinases is well understood. In contrast, the proteins that inactivate this pathway are not as well characterized. METHODS Here we tested the(More)
We analyzed medium-term efficiency and safety of biological therapy of Crohn’s disease, in particular transplantation of allogenic mesenchymal stromal bone marrow cells and anticytokine therapy with selective immunosuppressive agents. It was found that both methods of biological therapy of refractory Crohn’s disease resulted in clinical and in some cases(More)
AIM To compare the safety of therapy in patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and Crohn's disease (CD) who have received combination anti-inflammatory therapy using bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) and standard therapy with 5-aminosalicylic acid, glucocorticosteroids, and immunosuppressive agents. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Unfavorable consequences(More)
Systemic transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) is known to promote reparative process in a number of tissue damage as well as mucous healing one. It provided the basis for our study which was aimed to the effect of systemic transplantation of allogenic MSC (intravenous transfusion) in complex therapy of patients with Ulcerative Colitis.
This research is a continuation of the series of studies of the parietal microbiota of the bowel tissue samplings by the gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GCMS) method [G.A. Ossipov et al.//Journal of the Society of Russian Gastroenterologists, 2001, 1:54-69]. The purpose was to study a number of new microorganisms in view of new data on the(More)
AIM to determine the whether mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) may be used in the treatment of patients with chrOnic intestinal inflammatory diseases (IID). SUBJECTS AND METHODS Thirty-nine patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) (Group 1) and 11 with Crohn's disease (CD) (Group 2) were examined. Comparative groups included 30 patients with UC (Group 2) and 10(More)
Immunology has grown beyond the classic doctrine of immunity to infectious diseases, and gradually covered the problems of general physiology and pathology, genetics, embryology, transplantation, oncology and many other disciplines. A new direction has appeared--immunogenetics, which should help to answer questions the disposition and/or resistance to(More)
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is the most common diagnosis in gastroenterology. Over 10 years after Rome consensus III (2006), there has been much new information on the pathogenesis of IBS and its therapy options. The paper analyzes basic investigations that have contributed to the theory of this disease and to a better quality of life in patients.
The first results of allogeneic mesenchymal stem cells from the bone marrow transplantation to patients with ulcerative colitis demonstrated improved clinical course. We found an increasing in the duration of remission in patients with chronic recurrent and continuous recurrent course of ulcerative colitis. Also it was noted reducing the risk of relapse,(More)
