Neonatal asphyxia is an important contributor to cerebral palsy (CP), for which there is no effective treatment to date. The administration of human cord blood cells (hUCBCs) is emerging as a therapeutic strategy for the treatment of neurological disorders. However, there are few studies on the application of hUCBCs to the treatment of neonatal ischemia as(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The transplantation of human umbilical cord blood cells (hUCBCs) has been shown to attenuate the unregulated activation of microglia in a rat model of cerebral palsy (CP). To investigate whether hUCBCs transplantation is also anti-inflammatory in humans, we performed a clinical trial in patients with CP. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
Our novel monoclonal antibody (mAb) B4 reacted with only D-dimer but not intact fibrinogen, or fibrinogen degradation products (FgDP) such as D-monomer, E fragment on ELISA. B4 didn't react with denatured D-dimer, while it reacted well with denatured D-monomer rather than the native form, indicating that B4 recognizes some neoconformational epitope in(More)
