Current Trends on Applications of Stem Cells in Diabetic Nephropathy

Scientists review the potential mechanism of stem cells as new therapeutic agents in the treatment of diabetic nephropathy (DN). They also review recent findings and updated information about not only the utilization of stem cells on DN in both preclinical and clinical trials but limitations and future expectations of stem cell-based therapy for DN.

Role of Fibrocytes and Endothelial ProgenitoPr Cells among Low-Differentiated CD34+ Cells in the Progression of Lung Sarcoidosis

Scientists characterized of the CD34+ cell population in peripheral blood in patients with sarcoidosis (SA) with reference to the control group. Moreover in patients with SA, fibrocytes and endothelial cells were analyzed and their relationship to the fibrosis process based on assessment of diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide.

Soluble Epoxide Hydrolase Inhibitors Improve Angiogenic Function of Endothelial Progenitor Cells via ERK/p38-Mediated miR-126 Upregulation in Myocardial Infarction Mice after Exercise

Mice were subjected to exercise training for four weeks. Bone marrow-derived endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) were isolated and cultured in vitro. Exercise upregulated miR-126 expression but downregulated the protein levels of its target gene, Spred1, in EPCs from myocardial infarctionmice.

Y-27632 Promotes the Healing of Corneal Endothelial Wounds Using Endothelial Progenitor Cells Derived from Umbilical Cord Blood

Scientists investigated the proliferation of umbilical cord blood–derived endothelial progenitor cells and the differentiation efficiency toward corneal endothelial cell-like cells induced by rho-associated protein kinase inhibitor Y-27632 and to determine the most effective strategy for repairing corneal endothelium injuries in rabbits.

THRIL Mediates Endothelial Progenitor Cells Autophagy via AKT Pathway and FUS

THRIL was upregulated in coronary atherosclerotic heart disease (CAD) blood samples and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). Knockdown of THRIL in EPCs promoted cell viability, inhibited cell autophagy and further suppressed the development of CAD.

Endothelial Progenitor Cell Transplantation Restores Vascular Injury in Mice after Whole-brain Irradiation

Flow cytometry demonstrated that irradiation led to a significant reduction in the peripheral blood endothelial progenitor cell (EPC) count; however, EPC transplantation led to a significant increase in the circulating EPCs.
