Stem cell-mediated cardiac regeneration is impaired with age. In this study, we identified a novel subpopulation of small juvenile stem cells (SJSCs) isolated from aged bone marrow-derived stem cells (BMSCs) with high proliferation and differentiation potential. SJSCs expressed mesenchymal stem cell markers, CD29(+)/CD44(+)/CD59(+)/CD90(+), but were negative for CD45(-)/CD117(-) as examined by flow cytometry analysis. SJSCs showed higher proliferation, colony formation, and differentiation abilities compared with BMSCs...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
P M Kimball, B Radovancĕvíc, T Isom, A Spickard, O H Frazier
The utility of cytokine monitoring to predict the onset of significant rejection was evaluated in 34 patients following heart transplantation. Serial blood levels of 5 cytokines involved in inflammation and immune activation(IL-1, IL-2, IL-6, IL-8, and TNF) were correlated with clinical outcome and endomyocardial biopsy scores. The majority of patients (68%) experienced a significant rejection during the study period. IL-6 and IL-8 levels were effective markers of significant rejection 2-4 days before diagnosis with EMBX...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
