Prevention of Peritendinous Adhesion Formation After the Flexor Tendon Surgery in Rabbits: A Comparative Study Between Use of Local Interferon-α, Interferon-β, and 5-Fluorouracil

Conclusions Local application of 5-FU significantly reduced peritendinous adhesion. Local IFN-α and IFN-β had no significant effect on the prevention of peritendinous adhesion formation. The strength of the repair was not affected by these cytokines and 5-FU.

Authors: Wang Y, Zhang B, Gao G, Zhang Y, Xia Q Abstract Guanine nucleotide exchange factor T (GEFT), a member of the Rho guanine nucleotide exchange factor family, is expressed in a variety of tumors. In the present study, the expression and clinical significance of GEFT in malignant digestive tract tumors was assessed. Tumor and adjacent control samples from 180 patients were tested. Positive GEFT expression rates were 80, 83.33 and 86.67% in esophageal squamous carcinoma (ESCC), gastric carcinoma (GC) and colorectal cancer (CRC), respectively. GEFT expression was associated with diffuse type carcinoma according ...

During development, precursors build the CNS. In adulthood, they maintain their ability to proliferate and generate differentiated progeny, indicating their tremendous potential to regenerate and repair injured or degenerated CNS. How can we utilize this capability? Cross-talk between neurons and OPC...

Mohamed, Nagwa El-Badri, Amr ZaherAbstractStem cell therapy using bone marrow derived or mesenchymal stem cells has become a popular option for cardiovascular disease treatment, however the administration of embryonic stem cells has been mostly experimental. Remarkably, most of these ongoing clinical trials involve adult patients, but little is known regarding the safety and efficacy of stem cell therapy in newborns and children battling congenital heart diseases. Furthermore, cell delivery methods involve the administration of stem c...

Soy protein hydrolysate (SPH) was grafted on T-CNF via amidation of carboxylic groups. Biomineralization was, then, assessed via calcium phosphates (CaP) precipitation in twice-simulated body fluid until formation of a new bioactive material. Protein was efficiently grafted without alteration of morphology and nanofibrils packing as reported by Fou...

FalkAbstractPatients with giant hiatal hernia (GHH) are often symptomatic and have significantly reduced quality of life (QoL). Advanced age is a predictor of increased morbidity and mortality in open hiatal surgery, however, outcomes of laparoscopic surgery in patients over the age of 80 are limited to case reports and small case series.Data was extracted from a prospectively maintained database. Consecutive patients over the age of 80 with GHH that have undergone surgery were included. Peri-operative m...

(CNN) — Should you eat before or after exercise in the morning? The debate has raged for years. The eat-first camp says food before exercise boosts blood sugars, giving the body fuel to increase the intensity and length of a workout. It also keeps you from being fatigued or dizzy. The eat-after camp says you burn more fat if you fast before exercise. A small UK study published Friday supports the latter point of view: In 30 obese or overweight men, those who exercised before breakfast burned twice the fat as men who ate breakfast before they worked out. That’s because exercising with no fuel forces the body to ...

ConclusionThe present study has demonstrated that the pure and impure distinction of orbital fractures was not clinically relevant with respect to ocular and periocular injuries. However, our findings seem to suggest that other parameters such as the direction of the impact and/or its magnitude, rather than merely the pure or impure configuration, could be involved in determining the risk of developing concomitant ocular and periocular injuries.
