Nowadays, many couples are suffering from infertility problems. There are different causes for infertility including chemotherapy (for male and female), uterine injuries, and intrauterine adhesions. Extra-cellular matrix in tissue engineering provides a supportive medium for blood or lymphatic vessels making it a suitabl...

Authors: Fathi E, Sanaat Z, Farahzadi R Abstract Drug resistance in cancer, especially in leukemia, creates a dilemma in treatment planning. Consequently, studies related to the mechanisms underlying drug resistance, the molecular pathways involved in this phenomenon, and alternate therapies have attracted the attention of researchers. Among a variety of therapeutic modalities, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are of special interest due to their potential clinical use. Therapies involving MSCs are showing increasing promise in cancer treatment and anticancer drug screening applications; however, results have been inc...

In this study, silk nanofibrous scaffold (3D) was fabricated by electrospinning and then its biocompatibility and non-toxicity by MTT assay. After that, scaffold supportive effects on human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) differentiation to insulin producing cells (IPCs) was studied at the gene and protein levels. IPCs related genes and proteins were up regulated in electrospun silk group significantly greater than tissue culture plates group (2D). In addition, another part of the results demonstrated that differentiated cells on 2D and 3D groups have great functional properties including C-peptide and insulin secr...

This article discusses the historic context of HDM-ASCT, the modern role of HDM-ASCT given the availability of highly sensitive MRD testing, and the likely future of quadruplet treatment. In summary, patients who attain deep responses using IMiD- and PI-based regimens may not require early HDM-ASCT. A delayed approach to this treatment is acceptable, and might be preferred by patients. PMID: 31730582 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: 25 December 2019Source: Journal of Industrial and Engineering Chemistry, Volume 80Author(s): Jung Hwan Park, Jeong-Kee Yoon, Yu-Jin Kim, Tae-Jin Lee, Gun-Jae Jeong, Dong-Ik Kim, Suk Ho BhangAbstractDue to their heat-generating property based on exogenous energy irradiation, reduced graphene oxide particles (RGOs) have been widely used for photothermal cancer therapy. They show high absorbance for the near-infrared wavelength that is suitable for in vivo experimentation. However, enhancing the tumor-targeting efficiency and avoiding the self-aggregation of RGO to maximize the photothermal effect remain cha...

In this study, we prepared polydopamine-gelatin templated electrospun nanofibers, which were coated with precisely controlled amounts of biominerals in the form of simulated body fluid (SBF). We initially investigated the effects of different mineral concentrations on the in vitro osteogenic differentiation of human adipose derived stem cells (hADSCs), demonstrating the increase in osteogenic differentiation as a function of mineral concentration without any osteogenic supplements. Meanwhile, in the presence of chondrogenic medium, nanofibers with lower mineral contents showed the highest chondrogenic commitment of hADSCs,...

Abstract The intestine serves mainly as a place for digestion and absorption and functions as an immune and endocrine organ. Intestinal stem cells (ISCs) play critical roles in the maintenance of intestinal homeostasis and regeneration, and a complex of signaling pathways is involved in these processes. The Notch signaling pathway is induced via distinct cell-to-cell connections, which are activated through the binding of the Notch ligand on the surface of niche cells to the Notch receptor on ISCs. Numerous studies have shown the central importance of Notch signaling in the proliferation and differentiation of ISC...

Abstract Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) represent a heterogeneous group of self-renewal, multipotent non-hematopoietic stem cells, which display profound immunomodulatory functions and promising therapeutic effects. Autoimmune diseases, which result from an aberrant immune response to selfantigens, can be detrimental to nearly all body tissues. With the advance in developing a novel treatment, including biological agents, it is still impossible to cure autoimmune disorders. Recent studies demonstrate the remarkable therapeutic effectiveness of MSCs towards a wide array of autoimmune diseases. In this review, the im...
