BACKGROUND Triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-2 (TREM2) is a microglial surface receptor involved in phagocytosis. Clearance of apoptotic debris after stroke represents an important mechanism to re-attain tissue homeostasis and thereby ensure functional recovery. The role of TREM2 following stroke is currently unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS As(More)
Autologous bone marrow cell transplantation (BMCs-Tx) is a promising novel option for treatment of cardiovascular disease. We analysed in a randomized controlled study the influence of the intracoronary autologous freshly isolated BMCs-Tx on the mobilization of bone marrow-derived circulating progenitor cells (BM-CPCs) in patients with acute myocardial(More)
OBJECTIVES There is growing evidence that intracoronary autologous bone marrow cells transplantation (BMCs-Tx) in patients with chronic myocardial infarction beneficially affects postinfarction remodelling. In this randomized controlled study we analyzed the influence of intracoronary autologous freshly isolated bone marrow cells transplantation by use of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to determine whether regular exercise training (ET) is effective at promoting the mobilization of CPCs and improving their functional activity in patients with recently acquired myocardial infarction (STEMI). Regular physical training has been shown to improve myocardial perfusion and cardiovascular function. This(More)
We present the Voronoi tessellation of electron density data to obtain molecular dipole moments in bulk phase ab initio molecular dynamics simulations for the calculation of vibrational spectra. Opposed to the established scheme of maximally localized Wannier functions, this approach does not rely on computationally demanding localization procedures.(More)
We present TRAVIS ("TRajectory Analyzer and VISualizer"), a free program package for analyzing and visualizing Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics trajectories. The aim of TRAVIS is to collect as many analyses as possible in one program, creating a powerful tool and making it unnecessary to use many different programs for evaluating simulations. This should(More)
The success of treatment for acute myocardial infarction and chronic myocardial ischemia has improved general medical care in Europe, resulting in an increasing population of patients with chronic and congestive heart failure. By applying currently available therapeutic options the quality of life and lifespan of these patients have both increased. However,(More)
We present here the possibility of forming triphilic mixtures from alkyl- and fluoroalkylimidazolium ionic liquids, thus, macroscopically homogeneous mixtures for which instead of the often observed two domains-polar and nonpolar-three stable microphases are present: polar, lipophilic, and fluorous ones. The fluorinated side chains of the cations indeed(More)
