The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stromal cell (BM-MSC) administration on liver function following partial hepatectomy (PHx) of methionine/choline-deficient (MCD) diet induced steatotic livers in rodents. Here we identified and validated serum cholinesterase (CHE) and triglyceride (TG) levels as non-invasive(More)
BACKGROUND AIMS Damage to smooth muscle has been the primary cause of dysfunction in diabetic bladders. Major changes in the filling phase of the bladder result in the loss of compliance and incomplete emptying in patients. METHODS Cell-based therapies in the lower urinary tract have shown promising results. We argue that because diabetic bladder(More)

AIMS To longitudinally evaluate serum(More)
