OBJECTIVE In this study, we investigated the combined effect of 2-Methoxyestradiol (2ME2) and (60)Co on the cytogenetic damage of iododeoxyuridine (IUdR) in the spheroid model of U87MG glioblastoma cancer cell lines by alkaline comet assay. MATERIALS AND METHODS U87MG cells were cultured as spheroids with diameters of 350 µm. As control, the spheroids of(More)
BACKGROUND Olfactory ensheathing glia (OEG) has been shown to have a neuroprotective effect after being transplanted in rats with spinal cord injury. This study was conducted to determine the possible beneficial results of olfactory mucosa transplantation (OMT) which is a source of OEG on functional recovery and axonal regeneration after transection of the(More)
Heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70), a protein induced in cells exposed to sublethal heat shock, is present in all living cells and has been highly conserved during evolution. The aim of the current study was to determine the role of heat shock proteins in the resistance of prostate carcinoma cell line spheroids to hyperthermia. In vitro, the expression of Hsp70(More)
OBJECTIVES Clinical studies of treating traumatic brain injury (TBI) with autologous adult stem cells led us to examine the impression of a combination therapy. This was performed by intravenous injection of human umbilical cord matrix stem cell (hUCMSC-Wharton(,)s jelly stem cell) with bone marrow cell mobilized by granulocytecolony stimulating factor(More)
OBJECTIVE Transplantation of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) or Schwann cells (SCs) can facilitate axonal regeneration in peripheral nerve injuries. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of transplantation of BMSCs and SCs on functional recovery after injury to the sciatic nerve in the rat. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this experimental research,(More)
BACKGROUND Drug nano-carriers are one of the most important tools for targeted cancer therapy so that undesired side effects of chemotherapy drugs are minimized. In this area, the use of ultrasound can be helpful in controlling drug release from nanoparticles to achieve higher treatment efficiency. OBJECTIVE Here, we studies the effects of ultrasound(More)
Recent theories about migraine pathogenesis have emphatized the role of the trigeminal system in the pathogenesis of migraine attacks. The local vasodilatation of intracranial extracerebral blood vessels and the consequent stimulation of surrounding trigeminal sensory nerve pain pathways are proposed to be the key mechanisms underlying the generation of(More)
BACKGROUND Radiotherapy of the thorax often causes lung inflammation leading to fibrosis. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate whether the use of glycyrrhizic acid (GLA) could improve the development of lung fibrosis in irradiated animals. MATERIALS AND METHODS Wistar rats were divided into four groups. Group A rats received thoracic(More)
OBJECTIVE The label and detection of cells injected into target tissues is an area of focus for researchers. Iron oxide nanoparticles can be used to label cells as they have special characteristics. The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of iron oxide nanoparticles on human-derived amniotic membrane stem cell (hAMCs) survival and to investigate(More)
