Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a common and devastating disease affecting millions of people worldwide annually. Exaggerated inflammation and apoptosis are two pivotal pathological processes for secondary brain injury after ICH. Quercetin, a flavonoid widely distributed in various herbs, fruits and vegetables, has been proved to improve neuronal(More)
Transplanted human umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSCs) have exhibited considerable therapeutic potential for traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, how hUC-MSCs migrating to the injury region and the mechanism of hUC-MSCs promoting functional recovery after TBI are still unclear. In this study, we investigated whether stromal cell-derived(More)
Neuronal injuries have been a challenging problem for treatment, especially in the case of complete and chronic cervical spinal cord injury (SCI). Recently, particular attention is paid to the potential of stem cell in treating SCI, but there are only few clinical studies and insufficient data. This study explored the efficacy of autologous bone marrow(More)
Fucoxanthin is rich in seaweed and considered as effective anti-cancer drug because of powerful antioxidant properties. The objective of this study was to investigate the role of fucoxanthin on apoptosis, invasion and migration of glioma cells. Firstly, fucoxanthin showed obvious cytotoxicity against human glioma cancer cell line U87 and U251, however,(More)
Proper formation of neuronal dendritic branching is crucial for correct brain function. The number and distribution of receptive synaptic contacts are defined by the size and shape of dendritic arbors. Our previous research found that protocadherin 11 X-linked protein (Pcdh11x) is predominantly expressed in neurons and has an influence on dendritic(More)
The ability of transplanted induced neural stem cells (iNSCs) to promote functional recovery after spinal cord injury and the mechanism by which iNSCs migrate to injured areas are poorly understood. Stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1) is a cytokine, whereas CXCR4 is its cognate receptor. The aim of this study was to determine whether SDF-1 regulates the(More)
Neural stem cells (NSCs) have great prospects in therapy for neurological disorders. However, the correlation between improved function and stem cell transplantation has not been fully elucidated. A non-invasive method for stem cell tracking is crucial for clinical studies. In the present study, NSCs were infected with lentiviral vectors, and the expression(More)
In this study, transcranial Doppler ultrasonography (TCD) and photoplethysmography (PPG) have been utilized, through the observation of peripheral and cerebrovascular hemodynamic changes of the disorder of consciousness (DOC) patients, measured on clinical behavior scale of Coma Recovery Score-Revised (CRS-R) to obesrve their diagnostic value in evaluation(More)
This study investigated the feasibility of using intra-arterial injection-based cerebral blood volume (CBV) imaging with flat detector computed tomography (CT, IAFD-CBV). It is proven that this new method could provide comparable physiologic information as standard intravenous injection-based multi-slice computed tomography CBV imaging (IVCT-CBV). Twelve(More)
