Cell metabolism is a key determinant factor for the pluripotency and fate commitment of Stem Cells (SCs) during development, ageing, pathological onset and progression. We derived and cultured selected subpopulations of rodent fetal, postnatal, adult Neural SCs (NSCs) and postnatal glial progenitors, Olfactory Ensheathing Cells (OECs), respectively from the subventricular zone (SVZ) and the olfactory bulb (OB). Cell lysates were analyzed by proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1 H-NMR) spectroscopy leading to metabolites identification and quantitation...

Objective: Few studies have reported the outcome of mechanical thrombectomy with Solitaire stent retrival (MTSR) in subtypes of acute ischemic stroke. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and result of MTSR in acute cardioembolic stroke. Methods: Twenty consecutive patients with acute cardioembolic stroke were treated by MTSR. The angiographic outcome was assessed by thrombolysis in cerebral infarction (TICI) grade. TICI grade 2a, 2b, or 3 with a measurable thrombus that was retrieved was considered as a success when MTSR was performed in the site of primary vessel occlusion, and TICI grade 2b or 3 was considered as a success when final result was reported...

Cementless fixation for orthopedic implants aims to obviate challenges associated with bone cement, providing long-term stability of bone prostheses after implantation. The application of porous titanium and its alloy-based implants is emerging for load-bearing applications due to their high specific strength, low stiffness, corrosion resistance, and superior osteoconductivity. In this study, coagulant-assisted foaming was utilized for the fabrication of porous Ti6Al4 V using egg-white foam. Samples with three different porosities of 68...

BACKGROUND: Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a disease of older age group predominately in the sixth and eighth decades of life. The incidence of oral SCC (young age <40 years) varies between 0.4% and 3.9%. There has been increasing trend in younger age group worldwide as well as in India as reported by many studies. AIM: The aim of the present study was to compare the clinicopathological profile, treatment, and outcomes of SCC of oral cavity and oropharyngeal cancer in the young age group of <40 years old...

BACKGROUND: Although ferns are often known under collective names in Norway, e.g. blom, a substantial number of vernacular names for individual fern species are known, in particular for useful or poisonous taxa. In the past, the rhizomes (Norwegian: moldfôr) of selected species were collected for fodder. Only scattered records of such use are available from southern Norway, and the tradition's core area is found in the two North Norwegian counties of Nordland and Troms, in accordance with the longer winters encountered in the north, frequently leading to fodder shortage in early spring...

BACKGROUND: Despite the significant developments made in the field of diagnosis and treatment modalities of cancer during the last two decades, it still remains one of the most life threatening diseases killing 8.2 million people annually across the globe. It has been well-established that development of chemoresistance in cancer cells is the major cause of failure of chemotherapeutic agents in clinic. Most of the chemotherapeutic agents currently being used activate NF-κB and NF-κB regulated gene products in cancer cells and induce drug resistance...

BACKGROUND/AIM: The addition of amifostine to chemoradiotherapy (CRT) or radiotherapy (RT) in advanced, inoperable NSCLC presents varying toxicity. The present study examined amifostine's effect on toxicity and efficacy of CRT or RT alone. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Database searches yielded 16 eligible trials comprising of 1,057 patients. Results of randomised trials were pooled and used to estimate the overall effect. RESULTS: Amifostine reduced the risk of >grade 2 acute oesophagitis by 26% [risk ratio (RR), 0...

The frequency noise of an optical frequency comb is routinely measured through the hetherodyne beat of one comb tooth against a stable continuous-wave laser. After frequency-to-voltage conversion, the beatnote is sent to a spectrum analyzer to retrive the power spectral density of the frequency noise. Because narrow-linewidth continuous-wave lasers are available only at certain wavelengths, heterodyning the comb tooth can be challenging. We present a new technique for direct characterization of the frequency noise of an optical frequency comb, requiring no supplementary reference lasers and easily applicable in all spectral regions from the terahertz to the ultraviolet...

INTRODUCTION: Stent entrapment and dislodgement in the coronary arteries is a rare but potentially fatal complication of percutaneous coronary intervention. Different retrival techniques of dislodged stents have previously been reported with high success rate but all of them are time-consuming, so as not quite useful in hemodinamically unstable patient. CASE REPORT: A 59-year old female patient with acute ST-elevation myocardial infaction of anterior wall was admitted for primary percutanous coronary intervention...

The objective of this study was to audit the cost of flexible ureterorenoscopic lithotripsy. The data for 302 consecutive flexible ureteroscopic lithotripsy (FURSL) procedure undertaken in our department for renal stone treatment were collected retrospectively. The costs associated with performing FURSL, including the cost of ancillary equipment were analyzed. This includes the cost of the initial purchase of the ureterorenoscopes and the holmium laser equipment. The cost of flexible ureterorenoscopy for each lithotripsy procedure (for a total of 302 FURSL) was $118...

OBJECTIVES: The main objective was to have a view of the functioning of the Centers Memory of Resources and Research (CMRR) to identify the difficulties which can interfere in the industrial clinical trials. The secondary objective was to make a proposal to optimize them. METHODOLOGY: Questionnaires were given in all CMRRs. RESULTS: One hundred thrity-five questionnaires were retrived (26 centers answered on the 27 that exist). Some elements appeared as strong structural factors but some weaknesses were highlighted such as: insufficient staff, lack of dedicated areas, lack of communication, activities multiplications, functional unit (UF) subdivision...

Currently, living related donor renal transplantation is the most common source for transplantation in Algeria. To develop cadaveric organ donation, the Blida Transplantation Team (BTT) started a local education program and campaign. On March 31, 2010, we procured and transplanted 2 kidneys from a 17-year-old brain-dead donor. The BTT is conscious that the local initiative must be followed nationally, with the help of the health authorities. There is an urgent need to promote brain-dead donors and cadaveric organ retriveal throughout the country...

AIM: The aim of the current study is to analyze the social dimensions of acute alcohol poisoning in children. METHODS: We have studied the patients at the age up to 18 years with acute alcohol poisoning hospitalized in the Children Toxicology Department of Emergency Hospital Pirogov, Sofia, Bulgaria, from January 1, 2007 to June 31,2008. All of them were at teen years--between 12 and 17 years old. Data on children were retrived from hospital medical records. We have used the inquiry method - specially created for the purpose of the survey questionnaire comprising 39 questions (location and the reason for drinking, type of alcoholic beverage, age at first drink, combination alcohol - illicit drug, type of family, education and employment of parents, frequency of alcohol consumption by parents, consecutiveness of the children in family, presence of siblings, presence of children in a single room, interests etc...
