P-glycoprotein mediates classic multidrug resistance by functioning as an efflux pump that excretes lipophilic chemotherapeutic drugs from cancer cells. We now report an association of P-glycoprotein in colon carcinomas with another tumor property, i.e., enhancement of local tumor aggressiveness. P-glycoprotein was detected with monoclonal antibody(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of a single intra-articular injection of adipose mesenchymal stem cells (aMSCs) versus plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) as a treatment for reducing symptoms in dogs with hip osteoarthritis (OA). METHODS This was a randomized, multicenter, blinded, parallel group. Thirty-nine dogs(More)
BACKGROUND The use of plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) has been proposed to improve the healing of Achilles tendon injuries, but there is debate about the effectiveness of this therapy. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the histological effects of PRGF, which is a type of leukocyte-poor platelet-rich plasma, on tendon healing. METHODS(More)
The use of spectral entropy to determine anaesthetic depth and antinociception was evaluated in sevoflurane-anaesthetised Beagle dogs. Dogs were anaesthetised at each of five multiples of their individual minimum alveolar concentrations (MAC; 0.75, 1, 1.25, 1.5 and 1.75 MAC), and response entropy (RE), state entropy (SE), RE-SE difference, burst suppression(More)
BACKGROUND The objectives of this study were to evaluate the best position and best exploration probe for determining liver stiffness (LS) in dogs using transient liver elastography (TE). Thirteen dogs were used in the study. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS Morphometric measurements taken were thoracic circumference, weight and height. Elastographic(More)
Naked mole-rats (Heterocephalus glaber) live in large eu-social, underground colonies in narrow burrows and are exposed to a large repertoire of communication signals but negligible binaural sound localization cues, such as interaural time and intensity differences. We therefore asked whether monaural and binaural auditory brainstem nuclei in the naked(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of serum type II collagen cleavage epitope and serum hyaluronic acid as biomarkers for treatment monitoring in osteoarthritic dogs. For this purpose, a treatment model based on mesenchymal stem cells derived from adipose tissue combined with plasma rich in growth factors was used. This clinical study included 10(More)
In a series of experiments we examined heterosexuals' reactions to the timing of disclosure of a gender-matched confederate's same-sex dating partner. Disclosure occurred in a naturalistic context-that is, it occurred when meeting, or expecting to soon meet, a same-sex attracted individual, who voluntarily shared this information with the participant as a(More)
Mitochondrial dysfunction in various tissues has been associated with numerous conditions including aging. In testes, aging induces atrophy and a decline in male reproductive function but the involvement of mitochondria is not clear. The purpose of this study was to examine whether the mitochondrial profile differed with (1) aging, and (2) 10-weeks of(More)
Recent reports indicate the possible role of bladder CO(2) as a marker of low perfusion states. To test this hypothesis, shock was induced in six beagle dogs with 1 mg/kg of E. coli lipopolysaccharide, gastric CO(2) (CO(2)-G) was measured with a continuous monitor, and a pulmonary catheter was inserted in the bladder to measure CO(2) (CO(2)-B). Levels of(More)
