Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a life-threatening disease characterised by vasoconstriction and remodelling of the pulmonary vasculature. The serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)) pathway has been shown to play a major role in the pathogenesis of PAH, but pharmacological modulation of this pathway for treatment of PAH is, to date, at a(More)
Wnt signals exercise strong cell-biological and regenerative effects of considerable therapeutic value. There are, however, no specific Wnt agonists and no method for in vivo delivery of purified Wnt proteins. Wnts contain lipid adducts that are required for activity and we exploited this lipophilicity by packaging purified Wnt3a protein into lipid(More)
A unique subpopulation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells that exhibit a parallel expression of haematopoietic and mesenchymal markers has been described as "circulating fibrocytes". These cells were demonstrated to obtain a fibroblastic phenotype in tissues or cell culture and contribute to pulmonary fibrotic disorders and tissue remodelling processes.(More)
INTRODUCTION Injury to the saphenous nerve at the ankle has been described as a complication resulting from incision and dissection over the distal tibia and medial malleolus. However, the exact course and location of the distal saphenous nerve is not well described in the literature. The purpose of this study was to determine the distal limit of the(More)
A Barres: The role of the complement cascade in glaucoma Confocal image, 63x, of the retina of an 11 month old glaucomatous mouse. There is evidence of synapse loss, an sign of neurodegeneration. We hypothesize that the immune complement protein C1q orchestrates the synaptic destruction, and that these events lead to Glaucoma. Nuclei in blue, synapses in(More)
