  1. A simple breeding protocol for the procurement of accurately staged rat donor embryos for neural transplantation.

    Cell Transplantation 18(4):471 (2009) PMID 19622234

    Obtaining accurately staged rat embryos can be difficult because of the variety of breeding protocols employed and because precise staging cannot be confirmed until excision of the embryos from the dam. The detection of estrus, pairing of animals, and confirmation of pregnancies is generally lef...
  2. Improved survival of fulminant liver failure by transplantation of microencapsulated cryopreserved porcine hepatocytes in mice.

    Cell Transplantation 18(1):101 (2009) PMID 19476213

    The aim of this study was to establish hepatocyte isolation in pigs, and to evaluate function of isolated hepatocytes after encapsulation, cryopreservation, and transplantation (Tx) in a mouse model of fulminant liver failure (FLF). After isolation, porcine hepatocytes were microencapsulated wit...
  3. The effect of composite pig islet-human endothelial cell grafts on the instant blood-mediated inflammatory reaction.

    Cell Transplantation 18(1):31 (2009) PMID 19476207

    Instant blood-mediated inflammatory reaction (IBMIR) causes rapid islet loss in portal vein islet transplantation. Endothelial cells are known to protect against complement-mediated lysis and activation of coagulation. We tested composite pig islet-human endothelial cell grafts as a strategy to ...
  4. Noninvasive imaging of liver repopulation following hepatocyte transplantation.

    Cell Transplantation 18(1):69 (2009) PMID 19476210

    Near infrared fluorescence (NIRF) optical imaging is a technique particularly powerful when studying in vivo processes at the molecular level in preclinical animal models. We recently demonstrated liver irradiation under the additional stimulus of partial hepatectomy as being an effective primer...
  5. Assessments of proliferation capacity and viability of New Zealand rabbit peripheral blood endothelial progenitor cells labeled with superparamagnetic particles.

    Cell Transplantation 18(2):171 (2009) PMID 19499705

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has proven to be effective in tracking the distribution of transplanted stem cells to target organs by way of labeling cells with superparamagnetic iron oxide particles (SPIO). However, the effect of SPIO upon labeled cells is still unclear on a cellular level. W...
  6. Generation of hepatocyte-like cells from in vitro transdifferentiated human fetal pancreas.

    Cell Transplantation 18(2):183 (2009) PMID 19499706

    Although the appearance of hepatic foci in the pancreas has been described in animal experiments and in human pathology, evidence for the conversion of human pancreatic cells to liver cells is still lacking. We therefore investigated the developmental plasticity between human embryonic pancreati...
  7. Clinical use of fructosamine in islet transplantation.

    Cell Transplantation 18(4):453 (2009) PMID 19622232

    Many islet transplant recipients have medical conditions that could interfere with the accuracy of HbA1c measurements (e.g., anemia/dapsone use). Fructosamine is less prone to have clinical interferences and reflects glucose control in a shorter period of time than HbA1c. This study aimed to val...
  8. A transformed cell population derived from cultured mesenchymal stem cells has no functional effect after transplantation into the injured heart.

    Cell Transplantation 18(3):319 (2009) PMID 19558780

    Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells characterized by their self-renewal and differentiation potential. Accumulating clinical and preclinical evidence indicate MSCs are a promising cell source for regenerative medical therapies. However, undesirable immortaliza...
  9. A novel strategy incorporated the power of mesenchymal stem cells to allografts for segmental bone tissue engineering.

    Cell Transplantation 18(4):433 (2009) PMID 19622230

    Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) hold great promise for bone regeneration. However, the power of mesenchymal stem cells has not been applied to structural bone allografts in clinical practice. This study designed a new strategy to enhance the efficiency of allografts for segmental bone regeneration...
  10. DAPI diffusion after intravitreal injection of mesenchymal stem cells in the injured retina of rats.

    Cell Transplantation 18(4):423 (2009) PMID 19622229

    To evaluate DAPI (4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole) as a nuclear tracer of stem cell migration and incorporation it was observed the pattern of retinal integration and differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) injected into the vitreous cavity of rat eyes with retinal injury. For this purpos...
