PURPOSE A decrease in the human urethral rhabdosphincter is reported with aging due to apoptosis, which may be a cause of urinary incontinence in the elderly population. To explore this mechanism we investigated the effects of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (Upstate, Temecula, California) on human urethral rhabdosphincter satellite cells. MATERIALS AND… CONTINUE READING
