RATIONALE Optimization of cell therapy for cardiac repair may require the association of different cell populations with complementary activities. OBJECTIVE Compare the reparative potential of saphenous vein-derived pericytes (SVPs) with that of cardiac stem cells (CSCs) in a model of myocardial infarction, and investigate whether combined cell(More)
AIMS/HYPOTHESIS Upon tissue injury, peripheral sensory neurons release nociceptive factors (e.g. substance P [SP]), which exert local and systemic actions including the recruitment of bone marrow (BM)-derived haematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) endowed with paracrine pro-angiogenic properties. We herein explore whether diabetic neuropathy(More)
PURPOSE The authors aimed to produce a new tear substitute capable of providing both lubrication and nutrition, based on a novel nutrient-containing therapeutic ocular surface medium (TOSM). METHODS Viscous substances, including hypromellose (HPMC), carbopol, and sodium hyaluronate (SH) were added to the TOSM at various concentrations. Three commercial(More)
