    Abstract : Since the first successful derivation of human embryonic stem cells (hESC), rapid progress has been attained in the development of strategies in differentiation of these cells into various neural lineages, with the fundamental objective of using these cells for replacement and repair of damaged neuronal circuits in the central nervous system (CNS). Of particular interest are midbrain dopaminergic (mDA) neurons, which play a central role in regulation of voluntary movement. READ MORE

  2. 2. Endothelial cells : Dysfunction and repair mechanisms

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Elzafir Elsheikh; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endothelial cells; endothelial progenitor cells; Wegener s granulomatosis; atherosclerosis; myocardial infarction; menstruation cycle; stromal cell-derived factor-1;

    Abstract : Endothelial cells (ECs) are crucial component of the normal vascular wall, providing an interface between the bloodstream and surrounding tissue of the blood vessel wall. Endothelial progenitors cells (EPCs) circulate in the blood and migrate to regions of the circulatory system with injured endothelium and ischemic tissues. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tissue repair in lung disorders

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Annika Andersson Sjöland; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The remodeling phase of tissue repair in lung disorders such as idiopathic pulmonary disease, asthma, obliterative bronchiolitis, and after lung transplantation is not well understood. One of the key players in fibrosis is the fibroblast and its progenitor, the fibrocyte. READ MORE
