Isolation and Characterization of a Human Fetal Mesenchymal Stem Cell Population: Exploring the Potential for Cell Banking in Wound Healing Therapies.

We describe an isolation method, characterize a population, and investigate its potential for cell banking and thus suitability as a potential product for cell grafting therapies. Our results show hFDF and a bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell (BM-MSC) line shared identification markers and in vitro multilineage differentiation potential into osteogenic, chondrogenic, and adipogenic lineages. The hFDF population exhibited similar cell characteristics as BM-MSC while producing lower pro-inflammatory cytokine IL-6 levels and higher levels of the wound healing factor hepatocyte growth factor. We demonstrate in vitro differentiation of hFDFs, which may be a problem in maintaining long-term lineage stability, potentially limiting their use for cell banking and therapy development.

(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 ...

A new type of return electrode aims to prevent some of the common problems associated with such devices, including adhesive-related skin injuries or pad-site burns, and it also provides an additional benefit. “Most return electrodes don't have any type of cushioning, but the Mega Soft Universal Plus technology incorporates a flexible gel that helps with pressure reduction,” said Paul Borgmeier, PhD, PE, director of research &development at Ethicon Inc., in an interview with MD+DI. In describing how the Mega Soft Universal Plus return electrode works, Borgmeier said it mak...

This single facility retrospective study evaluated blood culture results for patients hospitalized in the burn intensive care unit (BICU) from January 2012 to December 2017. A total of 969 samples from 420 patients were reviewed. Isolated pathogens were recorded by year and the number of days of hospitalizati...

A cross-sectional survey was conducted to evaluate the safety &security (S&S) level of attitude and knowledge in relation to bus fires among residents in Fuzhou city, Fujian Province. 200 passengers from 6 bus terminals and 10 bus stations were selected as study subject. The results show that the S&S attitude and kn...
