Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is a 37-amino acid neuropeptide, which is mainly present in primary sensory nerves. Although our previous study has shown that rat lymphocytes can synthesize beta-CGRP, there is no evidence demonstrating whether CGRP can be synthesized by human lymphocytes. In this study, the production of CGRP from human lymphocytes(More)
OBJECTIVE Acute wound failure is a common complication following surgical procedures and trauma. Laparotomy wound failure leads to abdominal dehiscence and incisional hernia formation. Delayed recovery of wound-breaking strength is one mechanism for laparotomy wound failure. Early fascial wounds are relatively acellular, and there is a delay in the(More)
OBJECTIVE Growth factors demonstrate mixed results improving wound healing. Amnion-derived multipotent cells release physiologic levels of growth factors and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases. This solution was tested in models of acute and chronic wound healing. METHODS Acute model: Sprague-Dawley rats underwent laparotomy incisions. The midline(More)
Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP), a neuropeptide contained in primary sensory neurons, has been demonstrated to be synthesized and released by rat lymphocytes in our previous studies. In this study, the release properties and molecular characteristics of CGRP such as immunoreactivity (CGRP-LI) from lymphocytes were compared with those from dorsal root(More)
