The objectives of this study were to demonstrate the presence and nature of abnormal cortical development in a rat model of hydrocephalus, the hydrocephalic Texas (H-Tx) rat, and to test the hypothesis that the obstruction of CSF flow in affected animals can be linked to this effect. CSF is secreted continuously by the choroid plexus, located in the(More)
Epidermal neural crest stem cells (EPI-NCSCs) in the bulge of hair follicles are a promising source for cell-replacement therapies in neurodegenerative diseases. A prominent factor in cell-based therapy is the practicalities of different routes of administration. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), owing to its adaptive library of secreted growth factors, can(More)
Interest in the factors involved in the abnormal cortical development of the HTx rat fetus have led us to re-examine the structural and morphological changes in the CSF pathways preceding constriction and blockage of the cerebral aqueduct. Histological analysis was carried out on coronal and sagittal sections from HTx and Wistar fetuses. The aqueduct is(More)
The Internet opens new options for communication and may change the extent to which older people use other modes of communication. The importance of older adults' participation in cyberspace has increased as Internet use for commerce and communication has increased. The present study explores how older adults' Internet use affects their sense of community.(More)
Diabetes mellitus is the most common cause of chronic renal disorders and end-stage kidney disease in developed countries. It is the major cause of dialysis and transplantation. Failure in renal function causes wide disorders in the body. Diabetes results in wide range of alterations in the renal tissue. It is believed that early histological changes in(More)
Introduction: Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurodegenerative in the central nervous system characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra resulting in loss of dopamine release in the striatum. Non-drug treatment options such as Stem cell transplantation and exercise have been considered for treatment of Parkinson's(More)
Diabetes mellitus is a progressive disease. Most investigators have focused on glomerular changes in diabetic kidney and non-glomerular alterations have been less attended. The present study has been conducted to find early non-glomerular histological changes in diabetic renal tissue. Twenty male Wistar rats weighting 200-250 g were used for the diabetic(More)
In Vitro Maturation (IVM) is a method that immature oocytes in antral follicles are extracted and matured in laboratry conditions. This review has attempted to provide the current knowledge and recent findings in in vitro maturation of oocytes and highlights the most important factors involved in this process. The review is based on literature reports and(More)
