AIMS: Resident and peripherally-derived glioma associated microglia/macrophages (GAMM) play a key role in driving tumour progression, angiogenesis, invasion, and attenuating host immune responses. Differentiating these cells' origins is challenging and current pre-clinical models such as irradiation-based adoptive transfer, parabiosis and transgenic mice have limitations. We aimed to develop a novel non-myeloablative transplantation (NMT) mouse model that permits high levels of peripheral chimerism without blood-brain barrier (BBB) damage or brain infiltration prior to tumour implantation...

Hydrogels with good biocompatibility, proper degradation rates, and tissue-matched elasticity are widely used in tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and drug delivery. In this study, enzymatically crosslinked biocompatible hydrogels were successfully developed using silk fibroin (SF) and pullulan (PL) under physiological conditions in the presence of both horseradish peroxidase (HRP) and hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 ). A series of properties of the hydrogels including gelation time, equilibrium swelling, enzyme degradation, morphology, rheological property, and compression modulus of SF/PL hydrogels were studied by varying the concentration of PL...

Endogenous adult cardiac regenerative machinery is not capable of replacing the lost cells following myocardial infarction, often leading to permanent alterations in structure-function-mechanical properties. Regenerative therapies based on delivering autologous stem cells within an appropriate 3D milieu could meet such demand, by enabling homing and directed differentiation of the transplanted cells into lost specialized cell populations. Since type I collagen is the predominant cardiac tissue matrix protein, we here optimized the 3D niche which could promote time-dependent evolution of cardiomyogenesis from human bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSC)...

BACKGROUND: Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is caused by autoantibodies to red blood cells (RBCs), which can be panreactive and/or specific to Rh/other blood group antigens. We report a severe case of AIHA after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) due to autoanti-D triggered by reactivation of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infection. A combined strategy of D- RBC transfusion and administration of anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody (MoAb) resolved the hemolysis. CASE REPORT: A 33-year-old male underwent allogeneic BMT from an ABO-identical and HLA-matched unrelated male donor...

The outlook for patients with refractory/relapsed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) remains poor, with conventional chemotherapeutic treatments often associated with unacceptable toxicities, including severe infections due to profound myelosuppression. Thus there exists an urgent need for more effective agents to treat AML that confer high therapeutic indices and favorable tolerability profiles. Because of its high expression on leukemic blast and stem cells compared with normal hematopoietic stem cells and progenitors, CD123 has emerged as a rational candidate for molecularly targeted therapeutic approaches in this disease...

PURPOSE: Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) remains a devastating disease in premature infants. We previously showed that four stem cell (SC) types equivalently improve experimental NEC. Exosomes are intercellular nanovesicles containing RNA, miRNA, DNA, and protein. Because SC therapy faces challenges, our aim was to determine if the beneficial effects of SC are achievable with cell-free exosomes. METHODS: Exosomes from four SC types were compared: (1) amniotic fluid-derived mesenchymal SC (AF-MSC); (2) bone marrow-derived MSC (BM-MSC); (3) amniotic fluid-derived neural SC (AF-NSC); and (4) neonatal enteric NSC (E-NSC)...

Sclerostin (SOST) is a Wnt signaling inhibitor detrimental to osteogenic differentiation and bone mineral acquisition. While control of SOST action delays the pathogenesis of skeletal disorders, the effects of SOST vaccination on the estrogen deficiency-induced bone deterioration remain elusive. In this study, we generated a SOST-Fc fusion protein which was composed of a SOST peptide Pro-Asn-Ala-Ile-Gly along with an IgG Fc fragment. SOST-Fc vaccination increased serum anti-SOST antibody levels and reduced serum SOST concentrations in mice...

Objective Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are a promising cell-based therapy treatment option for several orthopedic indications. Because culture expansion of MSC is time and cost intensive, a bedside concentration of bone marrow (BM) aspirate is used as an alternative. Many commercial systems are available but the available literature and knowledge regarding these systems is limited. We compared different point-of-care devices that concentrate BM (BMC) by focusing on technical features and quality parameters to help surgeons make informed decisions while selecting the appropriate device...

The therapeutic method traditionally used in bone defect reconstruction is autologous bone grafting. The most common problems affecting this type of repair approach are bone absorption and donor trauma. The approach taken in this study overcomes these problems. Bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) provided the crucial seed cells. Fibrin biological scaffolds were formed by combining the BMSCs with concentrated growth factor (CGF). BMSCs were isolated from Wistar rat femurs; CGF was prepared from rat heart blood...

Sulfur mustard (SM) is an highly toxic and vesicant chemical weapon that was used in various military conflicts several times in the history. The severity of ocular, dermal, and pulmonary symptoms that may appear following a characteristic asymptomatic period are depending on the SM concentration and exposure duration. The aim of this study is to present the clinical features and share the intensive care unit (ICU) experiences for the medical management of mustard gas victims. Thirteen Free Syrian Army soldiers near Al-Bab region of North Syria were reportedly exposed to oily blackish smoke with garlic smell due to the explosion of a trapped bomb without causing any blast or thermal effect on 26th November 2016...

Osseous reconstruction of large bone defects remains a challenge in oral and maxillofacial surgery. In addition to autogenous bone grafts, which despite potential donor-site mobility still represent the gold standard in reconstructive surgery, many studies have investigated less invasive alternatives such as in vitro cultivation techniques. This study compared different types of seeding techniques on pure β-tricalcium phosphate scaffolds in terms of bone formation and ceramic resorption in vivo . Cylindrical scaffolds loaded with autologous cancellous bone, venous blood, bone marrow aspirate concentrate or extracorporeal in vitro cultivated bone marrow stromal cells were cultured in sheep on a perforator vessel of the musculus latissimus dorsi over a 6-month period...

Glucose-regulated protein 78 (GRP78), an ER chaperone, is overexpressed in cancer cells. Solid tumor cells can secrete GRP78 that can promote tumor angiogenesis, differentiation of bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells, tumor cell proliferation and polarization of tumor-associated macrophages. However, the mechanism by which GRP78 functions as a tumor promoter either by staying on the membrane to stimulate intracellular signals or directly entering into cytosolic remains unknown. Here, we reported that an endotoxin-free His-GRP78 protein was purified in vitro that simulates original secreted GRP78...

The tumor microenvironment (TME) is composed by cellular and non-cellular components. Examples include the following: (i) bone marrow-derived inflammatory cells, (ii) fibroblasts, (iii) blood vessels, (iv) immune cells, and (v) extracellular matrix components. In most cases, this combination of components may result in an inhospitable environment, in which a significant retrenchment in nutrients and oxygen considerably disturbs cell metabolism. Cancer cells are characterized by an enhanced uptake and utilization of glucose, a phenomenon described by Otto Warburg over 90 years ago...

Multipotent human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hBMSCs) are commonly used as seed cells in bone tissue engineering, but their clinical application is limited due to two challenges. One is the expansion of hBMSCs without loss of the stemness, and the other is the stimulation of osteogenic differentiation of hBMSCs when combined with biomaterials. In this study we demonstrated an approach by firstly elucidating the functional effects and optimal concentrations of Si and Sr ions on the proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of hBMSCs, and then designing bioactive bioceramic/alginate hydrogels which could release Si and Sr bioactive ions in the same optimal concentrations range for activation of the cells in vivo...

The implant-mediated drug delivery system (IMDDS) is a novel, innovative device that allows drug delivery through bone marrow. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of an active plunger component made of super absorbent polymer (SAP) on the plasma concentration of dexamethasone released from the IMDDS. The IMDDSs were installed in a total of 18 rabbits. After complete healing, dexamethasone was loaded with the SAP active plunger and with water to cause expansion in the test group (n = 9), while only the drug was loaded in the control group, as per the original protocol (n = 9)...

Bone marrow aspirate concentrates have become a popular therapeutic approach for several musculoskeletal conditions. A plethora of different preparations exist that make difficult to evaluate their clinical outcome and, thus, to make safe conclusions for their effectiveness. The first step for this assessment is comprehensive and reliable reporting of all the important variables that would allow characterization of their content and properties. This is critical for the understanding of their mechanism of action and the identification of the proper indications based on patient and disorder characteristics that could potentially lead to their effective application in clinical scenarios...

Sepsis is a dynamic disease, displaying an inflammatory profile that varies over time and for each organ. Controlling the inflammatory response based in targeting a single molecule has been proved useless. We hypothesized that treatment with bone marrow derived mononuclear cells (BMDMC) may be more efficient to modulate the systemic inflammatory response to infection. Adult male Balb/c mice were subjected to cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) or endotoxemia model of experimental sepsis. BMDMC were separated under Ficoll gradient and injected intravenously 1 hour after the procedures...
