Transplantation of Nanoparticle Transfected Skeletal Myoblasts Overexpressing Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-165 for Cardiac Repair
Background— We investigated the feasibility and efficacy of polyethylenimine (PEI) based human vascular endothelial growth factor-165 (hVEGF165) gene transfer into human skeletal myoblasts (HSM) forExpand

Normal myoblast injections provide genetic treatment for murine dystrophy
A treatment has been developed to alleviate muscle weakness in murine dystrophy. Cultured myoblasts from genetically normal mouse embryos were injected into the right soleus of 20‐day‐old normal orExpand

Angiomyogenesis for cardiac repair using human myoblasts as carriers of human vascular endothelial growth factor
This study investigated the potential of human skeletal myoblast carrying human VEGF165 for angiomyogenesis for cardiac repair. A porcine heart model of chronic infarction was created in 18 femaleExpand

Electrophysiologic differences between mouse extensor digitorum longus and soleus
Miniature end-plate potentials (MEPPs) and indirectly elicited action potentials were recorded in vivo at 37 degrees C from surface fibers of the fast-twitch extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and theExpand

Ultrastructural changes in muscle and motor end-plate of the dystrophic mouse
A comparative study of dystrophic mice (C57BL/6J-dy2J) and normal littermates, 6 to 9 months old, has revealed numerous ultrastructural changes in the dystrophic soleus. Vacuoles, swollenExpand

Improved angiogenic response in pig heart following ischaemic injury using human skeletal myoblast simultaneously expressing VEGF165 and angiopoietin‐1
To achieve angiogenic interaction between VEGF165 and angiopoietin‐1 (Ang‐1) using a novel adenoviral bicistronic vector (Ad‐Bic) encoding the two factors and delivered ex vivo using sex‐mismatchedExpand
