Human marrow stromal cell therapy for stroke in rat: Neurotrophins and functional recovery
ObjectiveTo test the effect of IV-injected human bone marrow stromal cells (hMSC) on neurologic functional deficits after stroke in rats. Methods Rats were subjected to transient middle cerebralExpand

Spinal cord injury in rat: treatment with bone marrow stromal cell transplantation
We tested the hypothesis that transplantation of bone marrow stromal cells (MSCs) into the spinal cord after a contusion injury promotes functional outcome. Rats (n = 31) were subjected to a weightExpand

Mesenchymal Stem Cell-Based Tissue Regeneration is Governed by Recipient T Lymphocyte via IFN-γ and TNF-α
Stem cell–based regenerative medicine is a promising approach in tissue reconstruction. Here we show that proinflammatory T cells inhibit the ability of exogenously added bone marrow mesenchymal stemExpand

Intravenous Administration of Human Bone Marrow Stromal Cells Induces Angiogenesis in the Ischemic Boundary Zone After Stroke in Rats
Abstract— We tested the hypothesis that intravenous infusion of human bone marrow stromal cells (hMSCs) promotes vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) secretion, VEGF receptor 2 (VEGFR2)Expand

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
  • 5 September 2006
The endocannabinoid arachidonoyl ethanolamine (anandamide) is a lipid transmitter synthesized and released “on demand” by neurons in the brain. Anandamide is also generated by macrophages where itsExpand

Klotho Inhibits Transforming Growth Factor-β1 (TGF-β1) Signaling and Suppresses Renal Fibrosis and Cancer Metastasis in Mice*
Fibrosis is a pathological process characterized by infiltration and proliferation of mesenchymal cells in interstitial space. A substantial portion of these cells is derived from residingExpand

Statins induce angiogenesis, neurogenesis, and synaptogenesis after stroke
We demonstrate that the 3‐hydroxy‐3‐methyl‐glutaryl‐coenzyme A (HMG‐CoA) reductase inhibitors atorvastatin and simvastatin enhance functional outcome and induce brain plasticity when administeredExpand

Regulation of hepcidin transcription by interleukin-1 and interleukin-6.
Hepcidin is a peptide that regulates iron homeostasis by inhibiting iron absorption by the small intestine and release of iron from macrophages. Its production is stimulated by iron overload and byExpand
