The purpose of this study is to determine if intraventricular injection of human adipose tissue-derived stem cells (hADSC) are effective in treating streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes mellitus (DM) in nude rats. Twenty-two adult, male nude rats (strain Crl:NIH-Fox1RNU) were used to induce diabetes using streptozotocin. A single, 150 mg/kg STZ was(More)
This study was designed to compare the efficacy of intraventricular (IV), intramyocardial (IM) or combined IV and IM injections of human adipose tissue-derived stem cells (hADSCs) administered either immediately, 5, or 10 days after induction of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) in a nude rat model. Acute myocardial infarction was induced in 99, adult(More)
To determine the clinical pathology parameters in nude rats (Crl:NIH-Fox1RNU) following experimental induction of acute myocardial infarction (AMI), 50 male adult nude rats weighing 250–350 g were used. Complete blood count, total and differential leukocyte counts, plasma total protein, albumin, glucose, urea, creatinine, total bilirubin, aspartate(More)
One hundred and fifty athymic nude (rnu/rnu) rats were intubated by direct visualizion of the larynx using a nasal speculum with an attached otoscope as a light source. A blunt, plastic covered stylet was introduced between the vocal cords as guide for a 16-gauge intravenous catheter which was used as an endotracheal tube. Successful intubation was(More)
INTRODUCTION Many objects were described in the literature as causes of upper airway obstruction including seeds, nuts and household particles but fragmented tracheostomy tube is a rarely reported cause of airway obstruction. We report a case of foreign body aspiration in the tracheobronchial tree due to a fragmented and migrated tracheostomy tube. (More)
