Extracellular Vesicles Derived from Epidural Fat-Mesenchymal Stem Cells Attenuate NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation and Improve Functional Recovery After Spinal Cord Injury.

Extracellular Vesicles Derived from Epidural Fat-Mesenchymal Stem Cells Attenuate NLRP3 Inflammasome Activation and Improve Functional Recovery After Spinal Cord Injury. Neurochem Res. 2020 Jan 17;: Authors: Huang JH, Fu CH, Xu Y, Yin XM, Cao Y, Lin FY Abstract Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating event which caused high mortality and morbidity. Recently, nucleotide-binding domain-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome has been showed to act a critical t role in the secondly injury phase of SCI. In current study, we aimed to investigate the effect and underlying molecular mechanisms of extracellular vesicles derived from epidural fat (EF)- mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for the treatment of SCI. Ninety-six Sprague-Dawley rats were used for current study and randomly divided into four groups: sham group, SCI group, SCI + Saline group, SCI + Extracellular vesicles group. Basso-Beattie-Bresnahan (BBB) scores was applied to evaluate the neurological functional recovery. Cresyl violet-stained was conducted evaluate the protective effect of EF-MSCs-Extracellular vesicles on lesion volume after SCI. ELISA, immunohistochemistry assay, TUNEL assay and western blotting were conducted to investigate the underlying molecular mechanisms. Our results demonstrated that the administration of EF-MSCs-Extracellular vesicles via tail vein injection improved neurological functional recovery and reduced the lesion volume after SCI. And s...

Abstract Following nerve tissue damage, various events, such as inflammatory responses, microglial activation, endoplasmic reticulum stress, and apoptosis, can occur, which all lead to cell death, prevent axonal growth, and cause axonal circumvolution. So far, several researchers have tended to adopt strategies to reduce the harmful conditions associated with neurological disorders, and stem‑cell‑based therapy is one of those promising strategies. Epidermal neural crest stem cells (EPI‑NCSCs) are a type of stem cell that has widely been employed for the treatment of various neurological disorders. It has bee...

Abstract Spinal cord injury (SCI) as a devastating and life-altering neurological disorder is one of the most serious health issues. Currently, the management of acute SCI includes pharmacotherapy and surgical decompression. Both approaches have been assumed to have adverse physiological effects for SCI patients. Therefore, novel therapeutic targets for the management of SCI are urgently required for moving experimental strategies forward cell-based therapies. Multipotent Stem stem cells as a novel strategy for the treatment of tissue injury may provide an effective therapeutic option against many neurological dis...

We report a new class of natural-product-inspired covalent inhibitors of telomerase that target the catalytic active site. Age-Related Epigenetic Changes that Suppress Mitochondrial Function https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/03/age-related-epigenetic-changes-that-suppress-mitochondrial-function/ Today's open access research reports on two specific epigenetic changes observed in old individuals that act to reduce mitochondrial function. This joins an existing list of genes for which expression changes are known to impact mitochondrial function with age. A herd of hundreds of mitochondria are found ...

Study Design. Basic science. Objective. The aim of this study was to examine the effect of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-transfected bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) on the recovery of motor and sensory functions of rats with spinal cord injury (SCI). Summary of Background Data. There is no effective treatment to protect against SCI. BMSCs have been widely applied to the treatment of nervous system damage due to the function of prompt neurite growth and inhibition of demyelination following injury. Methods. VEGF-transfected BMSCs were injected to rats with SCI and the recovery of motor and ...

Abstract Stem cells are the undifferentiated cells in the body that possess the ability to differentiate and give rise to any type of cell in the body. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in therapy involving the stem cells as different treatment methods got developed. Depending on the source, there are two major kinds of stem cells, embryonic and adult stem cells. The former type is found in the embryo at the different developmental stages before the implantation and excels the latter owing to pluripotency. On the premise of the attributes of stem cells, they are touted as the "panacea for all...
