Transplantation of adult marrow stromal cells (MSCs) has been developed as a new method of treating severe ischemia diseases by therapeutic angiogenesis. Erythropoietin (EPO) is capable of inducing angiogenesis and inhibiting MSCs apoptosis. The effect of EPO on the therapeutic potency of MSCs transplantation in a rat model of limb ischemia was investigated(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the short- and long-term effect of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) transplantation as a treatment for breast cancer-related lymphedema. To contrast it with complex decongestive physiotherapy (CDT). METHODS Fifteen women with lymphedema, who had undergone breast cancer surgery and/no radiotherapy 5 years before, served as the(More)
Following the publication of the article, the authors noted that there were certain errors in Fig. 5. In particular, the published Fig. 5A-a contains an image of H&E-stained micrographs from wild-type mice after the administration of a low dose of rhHMGB1, and not after the administration of a high dose of rhHMGB1, as should be shown. In addition, the data(More)
The pathogenesis of congenital heart block (CHB) remains unclear. The occurrence rate of neonatal CHB is low, even in murine models of lupus erythematosus. The assessment of heart block in murine maternal lupus models by measuring atrioventricular conduction in neonatal offspring is potentially confounded by fetal wastage. We therefore sought to develop a(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of bone marrow stromal cells transplantation and vascular endothelial growth factor C administration as a treatment for secondary lymphedema. METHODS Bone marrow stromal cells and/or vascular endothelial growth factor C protein were injected into a rabbit model of limb lymphedema. Water displacement volumetry was(More)
OBJECTIVE High-mobility-group box protein 1 (HMGB1), as a late mediator of inflammation, plays a key role in inflammatory responses by inducing and extending the production of proinflammatory cytokines. The effect of HGMB1 in the inflammatory disease thromboangiitis obliterans (TAO) is unknown. We aimed to investigate the role of HMGB1 in sodium(More)
The objective of this study is to observe the effect of high-mobility group protein B1 A Box (HMGB1 A) box on lung injury in mice with acute pancreatitis and its effect on the level of high-mobility group protein B1 (HMGB1) in lung, to explore the mechanism. A total of 60 male Institute of Cancer Research mice were randomly divided into control group (n =(More)
OBJECTIVE Popliteal vascular entrapment syndrome is an uncommon congenital abnormality of the anatomic relations between the popliteal vessels and the neighboring musculotendinous structures. The purpose of this essay is to describe the CT angiographic findings in the diagnosis and treatment of this syndrome. CONCLUSION Digital subtraction angiography is(More)
BACKGROUND Cold-inducible RNA-binding protein (CIRP) is a recently identified proinflammatory cytokine. We hypothesize that CIRP is involved in the progression of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA) and that anti-CIRP treatment could inhibit this progression. METHODS We investigated CIRP expression in the sera and aneurysmal tissues of human AAA patients and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the initial results of 41 patients with Budd-Chiari syndrome (BCS) with inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombosis, with regard to the clinical safety and feasibility of the therapeutic approaches selected according to the classification of the condition. Forty-one patients with BCS and IVC thrombosis were admitted for(More)
