Authors: Kocaba V, Damour O, Auxenfans C, Burillon C Abstract In France, endothelial dysfunction represents approximately one half of the indications for corneal transplants performed each year. However, the use of endothelial keratoplasty is limited by the technical difficulty of the procedure, a shortage of available grafts, and the potential for graft failure or rejection. These limitations are driving researchers to develop new, less invasive, and more effective therapies. Corneal endothelial cell therapy is being explored as a potential therapeutic measure, to avoid the uncertainty associated with grafting. Th...

This study showed that serially transplanted PDXs may not necessarily mirror the donor patients' diseases, and consequently, proper use of serially transplanted PDX models in translational cancer research requires careful molecular monitoring of the models. PMID: 29765518 [PubMed]

Inhibition of microRNA‑16 protects mesenchymal stem cells against apoptosis. Mol Med Rep. 2018 May 11;: Authors: Rui J, Fang S, Wang Y, Lv B, Yu B, Li S Abstract Bone marrow‑derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM‑MSCs) have been used in experimental research and clinical trials for heart function restoration and cardiomyocyte regeneration. However, due to a hostile microenvironment created by ischemia, hypoxia and pro‑inflammatory factors, the survival rate of implanted BM‑MSCs remains low. Therefore, strategies that can promote BM‑MSC survival and prevent apoptosis are required. Previous studi...

CONCLUSION: The examination of fecal samples for the presence of CMV DNA has very low potential in the diagnosis of CMV enterocolitis after allogeneic stem cell transplantation; therefore, a biopsy of the gastrointestinal mucosa is still warranted for correct diagnosis.

Authors: Rahmati M, Pennisi CP, Mobasheri A, Mozafari M Abstract Stem cell-based therapies, harnessing the ability of stem cells to regenerate damaged or diseased tissues, are under wide-ranging consideration for regenerative medicine applications. However, limitations concerning poor cell persistence and engraftment upon cell transplantation still remain. During the recent years, several types of biomaterials have been investigated to control the fate of the transplanted stem cells, aiming to increase their therapeutic efficiency. In the present chapter we focus on the general properties of some of these biomateri...

Abstract Stem cell therapy is a promising approach for the treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D). Previous studies recommended regular exercise for the control of T1D. Experimental studies showed that a combination of stem cells and exercise yielded a better outcome. Yet, the effect of exercise programs following stem cell transplantation in patients with T1D has not been investigated. Thus, the current study aimed to examine the effect of a combined exercise program on measures of glycemic control in patients with T1D who received autologous bone marrow stem cell transplantation (ABMSCT). Thirty patients wi...
