Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been successfully used for the treatment of experimental intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). However, the neuroprotective mechanisms through which MSCs improve neurological functional recovery are not fully understood. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that treatment with MSCs inhibits inflammation after ICH and(More)
BACKGROUND Endodermal cysts (EC) are rare but well-known congenial lesions of the central nervous system mainly located in the spinal subdural space. Intracranial ECs are rare and commonly encountered in the posterior cranial fossa as extra-axial lesions; an intraparenchymal location is exceedingly rare. A complete removal is the best surgical strategy and(More)
Our objective was to achieve the enhanced delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) to ischemically disordered brain through transferrin-coupled liposomes (Tf-PLs) via intravenous administration, and to observe the effect of Tf-VEGF-PLs on ischemic brain neuroprotection and angiogenesis. Cerebral VEGF overexpression was achieved with Tf-PLs by(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by a progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons and consequent dopamine (DA) deficit, and current treatment still remains a challenge. Although neural stem cells (NSCs) have been evaluated as appealing graft sources, mechanisms underlying the beneficial phenomena are not well understood. Here, we investigate whether(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the protective effect of Exosomes from human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hAMSCs) in neural injury induced by glutamate and its possible mechanism. METHODS Characteristics of Exosomes from hAMSCs were identified by electron microscopy and Western blot analysis. Cytokines that might play a major role in the protective(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD), known to be a leading cause of dementia that causes heavy social and financial burdens worldwide, is characterized by progressive loss of neurons and synaptic connectivity after depositions of amyloid-β (Aβ) protein. Current therapies for AD patients can only alleviate symptoms but cannot deter the neural degeneration, thus(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the signal pathway of honokiol-induced apoptosis in H4 human neuroglioma cells and to evaluate whether p53 signaling and cell cycle arrest were involved in honokiol-treated H4 human neuroglioma cells. METHODS The cell viability was detected by the CCK8 assay. The cell apoptosis was assessed by annexin V-PI double-labeling staining(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a leading cause of dementia worldwide, associated with cognitive deficits and brain glucose metabolic alteration. However, the associations of glucose metabolic changes with cognitive dysfunction are less detailed. Here, we examined the brains of APP/presenilin 1 (PS1) transgenic (Tg) mice aged 2, 3.5, 5 and 8 months using(More)
Adult neurogenesis in the subventricular zone (SVZ), as well as in the subgranular zone contributes to brain maintenance and regeneration. In the adult brain, dopamine (DA) can regulate the endogenous neural stem cells within these two regions, while a DA deficit may affect neurogenesis. Notably, the factors that regulate in vivo neurogenesis in these(More)
