TGF-β1 combined with Sal-B promotes cardiomyocyte differentiation of rat mesenchymal stem cells. Exp Ther Med. 2018 Jun;15(6):5359-5364 Authors: Lv Y, Liu B, Liu Y, Wang H, Wang H Abstract Transforming growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) and salvianolic acid B (Sal-B) are key signaling factors for stem cell differentiation into cardiomyocytes (CMs). The present study compared the biological effect of TGF-β1 and Sal-B, alone or in combination, on bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cells (BMSCs) that differentiate into myocardial-like cells in a simulated myocardial microenvironment in vitro. BMSC...

Authors: Prompunt E, Sanit J, Barrère-Lemaire S, Nargeot J, Noordali H, Madhani M, Kumphune S Abstract Protease enzymes generated from injured cells and leukocytes are the primary cause of myocardial cell damage following ischemia/reperfusion (I/R). The inhibition of protease enzyme activity via the administration of particular drugs may reduce injury and potentially save patients' lives. The aim of the current study was to investigate the cardioprotective effects of treatment with recombinant human secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (rhSLPI) on in vitro and ex vivo models of myocardial I/R injury. rhSLP...

This study proposed to determine if there are differences in health and health behaviors between veterans who are caregiving for others (VCOs) and veterans who are not caregiving for others (VNCOs). Materials and Methods: Data were analyzed from a population-based observational cross-section involving persons who identified as veterans in the 2009 Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) national telephone survey. Those identifying as veterans were then grouped by those who also identified as caregivers and those who did not identify as caregivers. Data were w...
