Efficacy, safety and influencing factors of intra-calf muscular injection of bone marrow mononuclear cells in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus-induced lower extremity vascular disease.

Efficacy, safety and influencing factors of intra-calf muscular injection of bone marrow mononuclear cells in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus-induced lower extremity vascular disease. Exp Ther Med. 2017 Nov;14(5):5177-5185 Authors: Zhou HM, Liu F, Yang AG, Guo YQ, Zhou YR, Gu YQ, Yan BY, Li QH Abstract The efficacy, safety and impact of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) associated with the intra-calf muscular injection of bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMCs) in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)-induced lower extremity vascular disease (LEVD) were evaluated. Patients with T2DM-LEVD were randomly divided into a control group and BMMCs group to assess the efficacy and safety of the treatment; serum VEGF and bFGF levels were detected. The BMMCs group was divided into superior genicular artery (SGA) and inferior genicular artery (IGA) subgroups as well as low-dose and high-dose subgroups for the comparison of efficacy indices. The BMMCs group exhibited significantly improved indices (P0.05). The claudication distance in the IGA subgroup was significantly greater that in the SGA subgroup (P0.05). BMMC treatment for T2DM-LEVD was found to be safe and effective and had no significant impact on serum VEGF and bFGF levels in the short term; However, the degree of LEVD may affect its efficacy.

GurzovAbstractDiabetes is a metabolic disorder affecting more than 400 million individuals and their families worldwide. The major forms of diabetes (type 1 and 2) are characterized by pancreatic β-cell dysfunction and, in some cases, loss of β-cell mass causing hyperglycemia due to absolute or relative insulin deficiency. The BCL-2 homology 3 (BH3)-only protein BIM has a wide role in apoptosis induction in cells. In this review, we describe the apoptotic mechanisms mediated by BI...

In this study, the hollow structure of MOF-5 was synthesized. Its drug loading and drug release capacity were studied. The human ovarian cancer SK-OV-3 cell line was selected to study the drug loading system, cytotoxicity, and cellular uptake. We concluded that a hollow MOF with an excellent morphology was successfully fabricated in the experiment; it increased the drug loading capacity, achieved a more ideal sustained-release effect, improved the treatment efficiency of the hydrophobic Chinese medicine component, and provided a relatively efficient drug loading material.Graphical abstract

Macrophages and extracellular matrix (ECM), regarded as two key factors of the tumor microenvironment, play significant roles in tumor progression and drug resistance. In order to investigate their effects on ...

ConclusionsRetrograde release of the neurovascular bundle with preservation of dorsal venous complex during RARP is safe and associated with excellent oncological and functional outcomes. Future comparative studies are needed.Patient summaryRobot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) presents consistent oncological outcomes for prostate cancer; yet continence and potency results are not uniform. We present a technical modification for RARP aiming to preserve the nerves and vascular structures anterior to the prostate. We evaluated 128 consecutive patients with clinically localized or locally advanced prostate cancer underg...

Conclusion Correlation is not causation. While many advocates of reduced interactions between “commercial” interests and physicians have implied or directly suggested a quid pro quo between industry meals and other financial interactions and prescribing habits, correlation alone does not prove a quid pro quo relationship. In the case of opioid prescribing, we believe that we have presented a strong case that 1) the relationship between industry payments and prescribing is much weaker than has been presented in the literature, and 2) that prescribing and attendance at manufacturer-sponsored informational lunches...
