Recent strategies to treat peripheral arterial disease (PAD) have focused on stem cell based therapies, which are believed to result in local secretion of vascular growth factors. Little is known, however, about the role of ischemic endogenous cells in this context. We hypothesized that ischemic muscle cells (MC) are capable of secreting growth factors that(More)
Speed of response is an important clinical issue in the treatment of depressed elderly patients. Our objective was to compare rapid response rates in a study combining therapeutic sleep deprivation (TSD) with paroxetine with two earlier randomized, double-blind studies in late-life depression, one of paroxetine versus nortriptyline and another of(More)
Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is the most severe clinical presentation of peripheral arterial disease and manifests as chronic limb pain at rest and/or tissue necrosis. Current clinical interventions are largely ineffective and therapeutic angiogenesis based trials have shown little efficacy, highlighting the dire need for new ideas and novel therapeutic(More)
