Pentadecapeptide BPC 157, composed of 15 amino acids, is a partial sequence of body protection compound (BPC) that is discovered in and isolated from human gastric juice. Experimentally it has been demonstrated to accelerate the healing of many different wounds, including transected rat Achilles tendon. This study was designed to investigate the potential mechanism of BPC 157 to enhance healing of injured tendon. The outgrowth of tendon fibroblasts from tendon explants cultured with or without…

Pentadecapeptide BPC 157 Enhances the Growth Hormone Receptor Expression in Tendon Fibroblasts

The BPC 157-induced increase of growth hormone receptor in tendon fibroblasts may potentiate the proliferation-promoting effect of growth hormones and contribute to the healing of tendon.

Stable Gastric Pentadecapeptide BPC 157 as a Therapy for the Disable Myotendinous Junctions in Rats

BPC 157 restores myotendinous junction in accordance with the healing of the transected muscle, tendon, and ligament in rats, and counteracts muscle atrophy that is regularly progressive and brings muscle presentation close to normal.

Gastric pentadecapeptide body protection compound BPC 157 and its role in accelerating musculoskeletal soft tissue healing

It is apparent that BPC 157 has huge potential and following further development has promise as a therapy to conservatively treat or aid recovery in hypovascular and hypocellular soft tissues such as tendon and ligaments.

Extracellular Vesicles of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells Promote the Healing of Traumatized Achilles Tendons

Results indicated that ADSC-EVs significantly enhanced the proliferation and migration of tenocytes in vitro and improved the mechanical strength of repaired tendons, suggesting that ADSc-EV treatment is a potential highly potent therapeutic strategy for tendon injuries.

Stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157 can improve the healing course of spinal cord injury and lead to functional recovery in rats

The functional rescue provided by BPC 157 after spinal cord injury implies that B PC 157 therapy can impact all stages of the secondary injury phase.

Stable Gastric Pentadecapeptide BPC 157 and Wound Healing

The antiulcer peptide, stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157 is reviewed, focusing on the particular skin wound therapy, incisional/excisional wound, deep burns, diabetic ulcers, and alkali burns, which may be generalized to the other tissues healing.

Fistulas healing. Stable gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157 therapy.

Taking fistulas as a pathological connection, this rescue is verified with the beneficial effects in rats with the various gastrointestinal anastomoses, esophagogastric, jejunoilesal, colo-colonic, ileoileal, Esophagojejunal, esphagoduodenal, and gastrojeJunal.

Effects and Mechanism of Berberine on the Dexamethasone-Induced Injury of Human Tendon Cells

Berb attenuated DEX induced reduction of proliferation and migration, oxidative stress, and apoptosis of tendon cells by activating the PI3K/AKT signaling pathway and regulated the expression of phenotype related biomarkers in tendon cells.

Potential Mechanisms of the Impact of Hepatocyte Growth Factor Gene-Modified Tendon Stem Cells on Tendon Healing

TSCs + HGF, which exhibit HGF overexpression, may promoting tendon healing via decreasing inflammation and fibrosis, perhaps partly via inhibiting TGF-β1-induced signaling.

Enhanced tendon healing with GDF 5 and 6.

The tensile strength of the tendon regenerate was found to be increased by both proteins in a seemingly dose-dependent manner, indicating a new way to improve tendon healing by exogenous growth factors.

Gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157 promotes corneal epithelial defects healing in rats.

BPC 157 was shown to be effective in promoting corneal defects healing in rats and was markedly accelerated in eyes on microg- or ng-topical regimen of BPC 157 (p < 0.05).

Effective therapy of transected quadriceps muscle in rat: Gastric pentadecapeptide BPC 157

Complete transection of major muscle and the systemic peptide treatment that induces healing of quadriceps muscle promptly and then maintains the healing with functional restoration consistently improves muscle healing throughout the whole 72‐day period.
