Intravascular papillary endothelial hyperplasia (IPEH) is histopathologically characterized by endothelium-lined papillary structures encircling an acellular fibrin core. The process of IPEH pathogenesis is unclear. The purpose of our study was to identify histopathological and immunohistochemical characteristics of IPEH to better understand the(More)
Upper urinary tract-derived urine stem cells (USCs) are considered a valuable mesenchymal stem cell source for autologous cell therapy. However, the reported culture condition for USCs is not appropriate for large-quantity production, because cells can show limited replicativity, senescence, and undesirable differentiation during cultivation. These(More)
Endoscopic resection has emerged as an alternative therapeutic option for selected cases of early colorectal cancer. However, even now, few data are available on the comparative effectiveness of endoscopic versus surgical resection of early colorectal cancer. The aim of our study was to compare the clinical outcomes in patients with early colorectal cancer(More)
Intravascular lymphoma (IVL) is a rare disorder characterized by the presence of large neoplastic lymphoid cells restricted to the lumens of small vessels with a predilection for the skin and the central nervous system. While the vast majority of cases involving IVL are of B-cell lineage, the disease rarely affects the T-cell, the histiocytes, and the(More)
Kidney is one of the most difficult organs for regeneration. Several attempts have been performed to regenerate renal tissue using stem cells, the results were not satisfactory. Urine is major product of kidney and contains cells from renal components. Moreover, urine-derived stem cells (USCs) can be easily obtained without any health risks throughout a(More)
Atmospheric (in vitro) oxygen pressure is around 150 mm Hg (20% O2), whereas physiologic (in vivo) oxygen pressure ranges between 5 and 50 mm Hg (0.7–7% O2). The normoxic environment in cell culture does not refer to a physiological stem cell niche. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of oxygen concentration on cell properties of human(More)
PURPOSE We evaluated 5 different rat models using different agents in order to establish a standard animal model for interstitial cystitis (IC) in terms of the functional and pathologic characteristics of the bladder. METHODS Five IC models were generated in 8-week-old female Sprague-Dawley rats via transurethral instillation of 0.1M hydrogen chloride(More)
