The CNS has the potential to marshal strong reparative mechanisms, including activation of endogenous neurogenesis, after a brain injury such as stroke. However, the response of neural stem/progenitor cells to stroke is poorly understood. Recently, neural stem/progenitor cells have been identified in the cerebral cortex, as well as previously recognized(More)
We recently reported that propolis suppresses tumor-induced angiogenesis through tube formation inhibition and apoptosis induction in endothelial cells. However, molecular mechanisms underlying such angiogenesis suppression by propolis have not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of ethanol extract of Brazilian(More)
The reported outcome of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) from HLA-mismatched family members has been inconsistent. The object of this study was to evaluate the true impact of HLA-mismatch by using recent data from a homogenous population, excluding HSCT procedures that used graft manipulations, and by considering genotypic matching. Clinical(More)
Malignant mesothelioma is an aggressive tumor arising from mesothelial cells of serous membranes, and forms spheroid-like cell aggregates in pleural and peritoneal effusions. We examined the levels of anoikis, apoptosis induced by the detachment of cells from the extracellur matrix, in suspension culture in the human mesothelioma cell line NCI-H2052.(More)
