Hematopoietic progenitors are cells, which under challenging experimental conditions can develop unusual phenotypic properties, rather distant from their original mesodermal origin. As previously reported, cells derived from human umbilical cord blood (HUCB) or human bone marrow (BM) under certain in vivo or in vitro conditions can manifest neural features(More)
Finding a reliable source of alternative neural stem cells for treatment of various diseases and injuries affecting the central nervous system is a challenge. Numerous studies have shown that hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic progenitors derived from bone marrow (BM) under specific conditions are able to differentiate into cells of all three germ layers.(More)
OBJECTIVE Insulin-like growth factors are implicated in the development of diabetic nephropathy. IGF-binding protein 2 (IGFBP2) and IGF2 are expressed in the kidney, but their associations with diabetic nephropathy are unclear. We therefore tested the hypothesis that circulating levels of IGF2 and IGFBP2 predict longitudinal renal function in individuals(More)
