WNT/β-catenin signalling is involved in regulating adipogenesis, and its dysregulation occurs in obesity. Secreted frizzled-related protein 5 (SFRP5) is a WNT protein inhibitor; however, its role in adipogenesis and obesity is controversial. In this study, we observed that SFRP5 mRNA...

Toward designing the next generation of resorbable biomaterials for orthopedic applications, we studied poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) composites containing graphene. The role, if any, of the functionalization of graphene on mechanical properties, stem cell response, and biofilm formation was systematically evaluated. PCL...

Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) have demonstrated great potential for hyaline cartilage regeneration. However, current approaches for chondrogenic differentiation of hiPSCs are complicated and inefficient primarily due to intermediate embryoid body formation, which is required to generate endodermal, ectodermal...

The Journal of endocrinology, 224(1), 97-108 (2014-11-02)
Treatment with anti-inflammatory glucocorticoids is associated with osteoporosis. Many of the treated patients are postmenopausal women, who even without treatment have an increased risk of osteoporosis. Lymphocytes have been shown to play a role in postmenopausal and arthritis-induced osteoporosis, and...

A series of dihydro-9,10-ethano-anthracene-11-carboxamides as novel glucocorticoid receptor modulators is reported. SAR exploration identified compounds from this series displaying a promising dissociation profile in discriminating between transrepression and transactivation activities. 17a is a partial agonist of GR-mediated transactivation which elicits...

Middle East journal of anaesthesiology, 22(1), 53-57 (2013-07-10)
Different additives have been used to prolong regional blockade. We designed a prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled clinical trial to evaluate the effect of dexamethasone added to bupivacaine-fentanyl on the duration of postoperative analgesia via epidural catheterization. Seventy two adult patients...

Pediatric research, 76(3), 245-251 (2014-06-19)
Children with chronic inflammatory diseases suffer from severe growth failure associated with resistance toward the anabolic action of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I). We hypothesized that proinflammatory cytokines interfere with IGF-I signaling. We used the mesenchymal chondrogenic cell line RCJ3.1C5.18...

Neuropeptides, 48(6), 399-406 (2014-12-04)
Various studies have shown a relationship between nerves and bones. Recent evidence suggests that both sensory and sympathetic nerves affect bone metabolism; however, little is known about how neuropeptides are involved in the differentiation of pluripotent stem cells into osteoblastic...

Periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) is a frequent complication of preterm delivery. Proinflammatory cytokines, such as interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) released from astrocytes and microglia activated by infection or ischemia have previously been shown to impair survival and...

During their reproductive years, women are generally protected from cardiovascular disease events by their estrogen-replete status. Our starting hypothesis was that lower estrogen levels after menopause are associated with macrophage activation profiles skewed toward proinflammatory phenotypes. Research Design and Setting:...

The Journal of endocrinology, 223(2), 155-166 (2014-08-28)
Glucocorticoids (Gc) are potent anti-inflammatory agents with wide clinical application. We have previously shown that increased serum concentration significantly attenuates regulation of a simple Gc-responsive reporter. We now find that glucocorticoid receptor (GR) regulation of some endogenous transactivated but not...

Transplantation proceedings, 46(5), 1633-1637 (2014-06-18)
Liver transplantation is severely limited by donor shortage although it is the only effective treatment for end-stage liver disease. So the best alternative is hepatocyte transplantation. For obtaining human hepatocytes, some stem cells originating from extrahepatic or intraheptic tissues have...

The chondrogenic potential of adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) has been previously demonstrated, although several reports have indicated that ASCs produce less cartilage-specific matrix than bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells. In this study, we intended to improve chondrogenic phenotypes of ASCs...
