A nanofibrous silk nerve conduit has been evaluated for its efficiency based on the promotion of peripheral nerve regeneration in rats. The designed tubes with or without Schwann cells were implanted into a 10 mm gap in the sciatic nerves of the rats. Four months after the surgery, the regenerated nerves were monitored and evaluated by macroscopic assessments and histology. The results demonstrated that the nanofibrous grafts, especially in the presence of Schwann cells, enabled reconstruction of the rat sciatic nerve trunk with a restoration of nerve continuity and formation of nerve fibres with myelination...

Purpose: Radiation causes damage to irradiated tissues and also tissues that do not receive direct irradiation through a phenomenon called out-of-field effects. This damage through signals such as inflammatory responses can be transmitted to unirradiated cells/tissues and causes many effects such as oxidative damage. The radioprotective and anti-inflammatory effects of melatonin have been demonstrated in various studies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of pretreatment with melatonin on oxidative damage caused by direct irradiation and out-of-field effects on the lung tissue after pelvic irradiation in rats...

Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a proper scaffold for bone repair, however, it is not of excellent mechanical properties. Most previous studies on the effect of temperature increases were in vitro and had assessed merely improvements of HA's physicomechanical quality. This in vitro/vivo study investigated the effect of temperature increases from 870 to 920°C on physicomechanical and biological quality of Nano-HA. Forty experimentally produced HA disks sintered at 870 to 920°C were prepared (n=20×2). Disks were subjected to Vickers microindentation test (1 disk from each group divided into 4 quarters), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (1 disk), X-ray diffraction (XRD) [1 disk together with non-sintered HA], field emission scanning electron microscopy (FSEM, 1 disk from each group together with non-sintered HA), cell seeding and SEM assessment (2 disks), MTT assay over 4 different time periods (16 quadrants of 4 disks from each group), 6 one-thirds of 2 disks from each group for immunocytochemical (ICC) assay, and 8 disks from each group [as well as non-sintered HA] for the animal study (implantation in 4 sockets in 8 rabbits [32 specimens], histomorphometry, and computerized tomography) over two time periods...
