Neural stem cells (NSCs) are slowly dividing astrocytes that are intimately associated with capillary endothelial cells in the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the brain. Functionally, members of the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family can stimulate neurogenesis as well as angiogenesis, but it has been unclear whether they act directly via VEGF(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurodegenerative disorder caused by an abnormal expansion of a CAG repeat encoding a polyglutamine tract in the huntingtin (Htt) protein. The mutation leads to neuronal death through mechanisms which are still unknown. One hypothesis is that mitochondrial defects may play a key role. In support of this, the activity of(More)
AIM The total number of lymph nodes examined after salvage colectomy for endoscopically removed malignant polyps was evaluated and an attempt was made to determine whether there was an optimal number of lymph nodes that should be harvested. METHOD From 2000 to 2009, 531 patients underwent segmental resection for non-metastatic colon cancer. Of these, 22(More)
A two-dimensional finite element partial mandibular model allows a first comparison between two types of titanium cylindrical implants, one full, the other hollow. The study cases correspond to a distal edentulous rehabilitated with a three-unit bridge supported mesially by a healthy second premolar and distally by one of the two concerned implants. The(More)
