Abstract OBJECTIVES: To describe the impact of advance care planning (ACP) education on nurses' confidence in ACP knowledge and practice and to identify barriers to facilitate ACP conversation in a bone marrow transplantation unit. SAMPLE & SETTING: 60 nurses working in the bone marrow transplant unit at Oregon Health and Science University, an academic medical center. METHODS & VARIABLES: The aim of this quality improvement project was to increase ACP conversations by nurses. The authors used a single-group pre-/post-test design to assess the effectiveness of a 30-minute educational intervention...

This study aimed to induce spermatogenesis in azoospermic testis through induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived spermatogonial stem cell-like cells (SSCLCs) after iPSCs in vivo and in vitro transplantation and three-dimensional organ culture. DiI-labelled mouse iPSCs were transplanted to azoospermic testis mouse model (pretreated by busulfan 40 mg/kg). This study was designed based on two experimental groups. In experimental group 1(in vivo) labelled iPSCs were transplanted to azoospermic host testis. In experimental group 2 (in vitro) after cell transplantation, fragments of host testes were set as 3D organ...

Authors: Hirano M, Wada-Hiraike O, Miyamamoto Y, Yamada S, Fujii T, Osuga Y Abstract A 34-year-old woman presented our hospital with complaint of irregular menstruation and abnormal uterine bleeding lasting for a month. After her second parturition at the age of 27, her menstrual cycle had been regular, but it suddenly became irregular at the age of 30. Transvaginal ultrasound revealed the presence of ovarian mass, and the patient underwent diagnostic laparoscopic surgery. Bilateral ovaries temporally shrink after puncture but the size soon resumed. Gonadotropins were almost normal, but estradiol and PRL levels tur...

Conclusions: Our results show worldwide efficacy of BM-MSCs in improving functional outcomes in pre-clinical animal models of stroke and support testing these cells in clinical trials in various ranges of time windows using different delivery routes. The continued growing number of publications showing functional benefit of BM-MSCs are now adding limited value to an oversaturated literature spanning 18 years. Researchers should focus on identifying definitive mechanisms on how BM-MSCs lead to benefit in stroke models. Introduction Ischemic stroke is the 5th leading cause of death and the leading cause of long term di...

Conclusion and Future Directions GnIH is a hypothalamic neuropeptide that suppresses and finely tunes reproduction in birds by directly modifying GnRH1 and gonadotrophin release. GnIH expression and synthesis are influenced by social status, breeding condition, and the presence of conspecifics. Female presence stimulates GnIH release via NA release in male birds. These findings suggest that GnIH neurons modulate the activities of the HPG axis in response to the social environment, as well as photoperiod and stress. Thus GnIH is a newly discovered integrator of environmental stimuli for reproduction; nevertheless, there re...
