In vitro hepatic differentiation of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells under differential exposure to liver-specific factors.
Recent findings demonstrated that stem cells could be harvested from a patient and used to repair his or her own damaged liver. Additionally, stem cells may be manipulated in vitro to induce hepaticExpand

Optimizing donor selection in order to establish a cord blood banking facility: maternal and obstetric factors impact
In this study, we analyzed the obstetric factors affecting total nucleated cells (TNC) content of cord blood units to establish the criteria for umbilical cord blood (UCB) donor selection in ourExpand

Immunohistochemical localization of caspase-3, caspase-9 and Bax in U87 glioblastoma xenografts
Development of new therapies for glioblastoma requires animal models that mimic the biological characteristics of human brain tumors. On the other hand, potential antitumoral effects of a newExpand

Transcriptional silencing of ETS-1 efficiently suppresses angiogenesis of pancreatic cancer
In this study, we addressed the hypothesis that transcriptional suppression of erythroblastosis virus E26 oncogene homolog 1 (ETS-1) is an efficient therapeutic approach to pancreatic adenocarcinomaExpand

The comparison of different protocols for expansion of umbilical‐cord blood hematopoietic stem cells
Hematopoiesis is maintained by the activity of multipotent stem cells, which have the dual capacity to self‐renew and to differentiate into all of the blood cell lineages. The major challenge of stemExpand

Detection of human papillomavirus gene sequences in cell lines derived from laryngeal tumors
The role of Human Papillomaviruses (HPV) in laryngeal carcinomas has been studied with conflicting results. To evaluate the etiologic relationship between HPV infection and epithelial malignancy ofExpand

Ex vivo differentiation of umbilical cord blood progenitor cells in the presence of placental conditioned medium
Hematopoetic stem cells (HSC) are the progenitors for the lympho‐hematopoietic system, with long lifespan and high proliferation potential. Transplantation of HSC from bone marrow or peripheral bloodExpand

Evaluation of TV cell line viral susceptibility using conventional cell culture techniques
Despite the fact that a lot of methods have been developed for rapid virus detection, classic cell culture is still “the golden standard”. The range of viruses that can be isolated and cultured inExpand

The development of xenograft glioblastoma implants in nude mice brain
The inefficacity of the actual therapies for glioblastoma multiformis stimulates the researchers to search for new and innovative therapies. Therefore, the development of in vivo model forExpand

Transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells cultured on biomatrix support induces repairing of digestive tract defects, in animal model.
Transplanted mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) appear to play a significant role in adult tissue repair. The aim of this research was to obtain MSCs enriched, three dimensional (3D) patches forExpand
