Bioavailability and possible benefits of wheat intake naturally enriched with selenium and its products was tested. Wheat obtained by application of an original combination and procedure for foliar supplementation of plants with Se was characterized on the average by five times higher content of Se, the main form being L-(+)-selenomethionine (SeMet).(More)
Human placenta-derived adherent cells (PDAC cells) are a culture expanded, undifferentiated mesenchymal-like population derived from full-term placental tissue, with immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties. PDA-001 (cenplacel-L), an intravenous formulation of PDAC cells, is in clinical development for the treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory(More)
Amino acids in rat systemic and portal vein plasma and jejunal and ileal gut contents after 7 days of feeding normoprotein (NP) and protein-free diet (PF) are investigated. Amino acid analyses revealed that ingestion of PF diet resulted in unusual amino acid patterns in both plasmas. Thus, while the levels and/or molar ratios of all indispensable amino(More)
The ratio of total concentrations or molar ratios (moles/1,000 amino acid residues) of three non-essential amino acids (glycine, alanine, serine-GAS) and three essential-branched chain amino acids (valine, isoleucine, leucine-BCAA) were investigated in rat systemic and portal vein plasma and jejunal and ileal gut contents after feeding normoprotein (NP) or(More)
BACKGROUND Decellularized, dehydrated human amniotic membrane (DDHAM) is an extracellular matrix devoid of cells, cell debris, and growth factors. This study examines the effect of cell attachment to the DDHAM and the induced cellular responses. MATERIALS AND METHODS The cell types employed in this study were human dermal fibroblasts (HDF), human(More)
Introduction Clinical studies have demonstrated that adoptive transfer of allogeneic Natural Killer (NK) cells can play a therapeutic role in hematological malignancies and potentially solid tumors. We established and characterized ex vivo methods to obtain murine NK1.1 + cells from mouse fetal liver. These cells represent an orthologous cell type for(More)
