The Genous™ endothelial progenitor cell capture stent accelerates stent re-endothelialization but does not affect intimal hyperplasia in por...
We studied the coronary response to the EPC capture stent in swine. The stent, coated with murine antihuman monoclonal CD34 antibodies, was assessed with QCA guided stent implantation in normal swine coronary arteries for early endothelialization at 2 and 5 days, and NIT at 28 and 90...
Cytokine loaded biopolymers as a novel strategy to study stem cells during wound-healing processes.
The biopolymer matrigel loaded with cytokine can be used for the recruitment in vivo of specific cell populations and as a vector for the preparation of cell cultures. Data demonstrate that the injection of the matrigel biopolymer supplemented with interleukin-8 (IL-8) in the leech H...
Mono-dispersed bioactive glass nanospheres: preparation and effects on biomechanics of mammalian cells.
Mono-dispersed SiO(2)-CaO bioactive glass nanospheres (BGNS) were prepared by a two step sol-gel method in the absence of surfactant. The size of BGNS ranged from 200 to 350 nm in diameter and exhibited a rough surface texture. In vitro biomineralization tests showed that BGNS could...
Green tea consumption improves endothelial function but not circulating endothelial progenitor cells in patients with chronic renal failure
This study was designed to determine the effect of green tea consumption in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) on flow-mediated endothelium-dependent vasodilation (FMD) and the number of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). Forty patients with CKD requiring chroni...
Regenerative medicine: then and now--an update of recent history into future possibilities.
We have witnessed a biotech asset yard sale. Despite any monetary shortcomings, from a technological point of view there have been great leaps that are yet to find their way to the patient. RegMed is definitely bound to play a major role in our life because it embodies one of the primordial dreams o...

Alpha2,3-Sialylation regulates the stability of stem cell marker CD133.
We found that CD133 could be sialylated in neural stem cells and glioma-initiating cells, and the sialyl residues attach to CD133 N-glycan terminal via alpha2,3-linkage. Furthermore, desialylation of CD133 by neuraminidase specifically accelerates its degradation in lysosomes-dependent pathway. Take...

Alternating current electric field effects on neural stem cell viability and differentiation.
We applied fields of frequency (0.1-10) Hz, and found a marked peak in neural stem cell viability under oscillatory electric fields with a frequency of 1 Hz. We also found an enhanced propensity for astrocyte differentiation over neuronal differentiation in the 1 Hz cultures, as compared to the othe...
