  • Nanomedicine-based Curcumin Approach Improved ROS Damage in Best
           Dystrophy-specific Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells

    • Authors: Tai-Chi Lin, Yi-Ying Lin, Chih-Chen Hsu, Yi-Ping Yang, Chang-Hao Yang, De-Kuang Hwang, Chien-Ying Wang, Yung-Yang Liu, Wen-Liang Lo, Shih-Hwa Chiou, Chi-Hsien Peng, Shih-Jen Chen, Yuh-Lih Chang
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Best dystrophy (BD), also termed best vitelliform macular dystrophy (BVMD), is a juvenile-onset form of macular degeneration and can cause central visual loss. Unfortunately, there is no clear definite therapy for BD or improving the visual function on this progressive disease. The human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) system has been recently applied as an effective tool for genetic consultation and chemical drug screening. In this study, we developed patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (BD-iPSCs) from BD patient-derived dental pulp stromal cells and then differentiated BD-iPSCs into retinal pigment epithelial cells (BD-RPEs). BD-RPEs were used as an expandable platform for in vitro candidate drug screening. Compared with unaffected sibling-derived iPSC-derived RPE cells (Ctrl-RPEs), BD-RPEs exhibited typical RPE-specific markers with a lower expression of the tight junction protein ZO-1 and Bestrophin-1 (BEST1), as well as reduced phagocytic capabilities. Notably, among all candidate drugs, curcumin was the most effective for upregulating both the BEST1 and ZO-1 genes in BD-RPEs. Using the iPSC-based drug-screening platform, we further found that curcumin can significantly improve the mRNA expression levels of Best gene in BD-iPSC-derived RPEs. Importantly, we demonstrated that curcumin-loaded PLGA nanoparticles (Cur-NPs) were efficiently internalized by BD-RPEs. The Cur-NPs-based controlled release formulation further increased the expression of ZO-1 and Bestrophin-1, and promoted the function of phagocytosis and voltage-dependent calcium channels in BD-iPSC-derived RPEs. We further demonstrated that Cur-NPs enhanced the expression of antioxidant enzymes with a decrease in intracellular ROS production and hydrogen peroxide-induced oxidative stress. Collectively, these data supported that Cur-NPs provide a potential cytoprotective effect by regulating the anti-oxidative abilities of degenerated RPEs. In addition, the application of patient-specific iPSCs provides an effective platform for drug screening and personalized medicine in incurable diseases.

  • Additional Use of Synovial Mesenchymal Stem Cell Transplantation Following
           Surgical Repair of a Complex Degenerative Tear of the Medial Meniscus of
           the Knee: A Case Report

    • Authors: Ichiro Sekiya, Hideyuki Koga, Koji Otabe, Yusuke Nakagawa, Hisako Katano, Nobutake Ozeki, Mitsuru Mizuno, Masafumi Horie, Yuji Kohno, Kenta Katagiri, Naoto Watanabe, Takeshi Muneta
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Complex degenerative tears of the medial meniscus in the knee are usually treated using meniscectomy. However, this procedure increases the risk of osteoarthritis, while other treatments aimed at meniscal repair remain challenging due to the high possibility of failure. The use of synovial mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is an attractive additional approach for meniscal repair, as these cells have high proliferative and chondrogenic potential. In this case report, we surgically repaired a complex degenerative tear of the medial meniscus and then transplanted autologous synovial MSCs. We evaluated clinical outcomes at 2 years and assessed adverse events. We enrolled patients with clinical symptoms that included a feeling of instability in addition to pain caused by their complex degenerative tears of the medial meniscus. Two weeks after surgical repair of the torn meniscus, autologous synovial MSCs were transplanted onto the menisci of five patients. The total Lysholm knee score, the Knee Injury and Osteoarthritis Outcome Scale scores for “pain,” “daily living,” “sports activities,” and the Numerical Rating Scale were significantly increased after 2 years. Three adverse events, an increase in c-reactive protein, joint effusion, and localized warmth of the knee were recorded, although these could have been due to the meniscal repair surgery. This first-in-human study confirmed that the combination of surgical repair and synovial MSC transplantation improved the clinical symptoms in patients with a complex degenerative tear of the medial meniscus. No adverse events occurred that necessitated treatment discontinuation. These findings will serve as pilot data for a future prospective study.

  • Neurotrophic Factor Secretion and Neural Differentiation Potential of
           Multilineage-differentiating Stress-enduring (Muse) Cells Derived from
           Mouse Adipose Tissue

    • Authors: Yohshiro Nitobe, Toshihide Nagaoki, Gentaro Kumagai, Ayako Sasaki, Xizhe Liu, Taku Fujita, Tatsuhiro Fukutoku, Kanichiro Wada, Toshihiro Tanaka, Hitoshi Kudo, Toru Asari, Ken-Ichi Furukawa, Yasuyuki Ishibashi
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Multilineage-differentiating stress-enduring (Muse) cells are endogenous pluripotent stem cells that can be isolated based on stage-specific embryonic antigen-3 (SSEA-3), a pluripotent stem cell-surface marker. However, their capacities for survival, neurotrophic factor secretion, and neuronal and glial differentiation are unclear in rodents. Here we analyzed mouse adipose tissue-derived Muse cells in vitro. We collected mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) from C57BL/6 J mouse adipose tissue and separated SSEA-3+, namely Muse cells, and SSEA-3–, non-Muse cells, to assess self-renewability; pluripotency marker expression (Nanog, Oct3/4, Sox2, and SSEA-3); spontaneous differentiation into endodermal, mesodermal, and ectodermal lineages; and neural differentiation capabilities under cytokine induction. Neurally differentiated Muse and non-Muse cell functions were assessed by calcium imaging. Antioxidant ability was measured to assess survival under oxidative stress. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), vascular endothelial cell growth factor (VEGF), and hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) secretion were analyzed in enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays. SSEA-3+ Muse cells (6.3 ± 1.9% of mouse adipose-MSCs), but not non-Muse cells, exhibited self-renewability, spontaneous differentiation into the three germ layers, and differentiation into cells positive for Tuj-1 (27 ± 0.9%), O4 (17 ± 3.4%), or GFAP (23 ± 1.3%) under cytokine induction. Neurally differentiated Muse cells responded to KCl depolarization with greater increases in cytoplasmic Ca2+ levels than non-Muse cells. Cell survival under oxidative stress was significantly higher in Muse cells (50 ± 2.7%) versus non-Muse cells (22 ± 2.8%). Muse cells secreted significantly more BDNF, VEGF, and HGF (273 ± 12, 1479 ± 7.5, and 6591 ± 1216 pg/mL, respectively) than non-Muse cells (133 ± 4.0, 1165 ± 20, and 2383 ± 540 pg/mL, respectively). Mouse Muse cells were isolated and characterized for the first time. Muse cells showed greater pluripotency-like characteristics, survival, neurotrophic factor secretion, and neuronal and glial-differentiation capacities than non-Muse cells, indicating that they may have better neural-regeneration potential.

  • D-mannose-Coating of Maghemite Nanoparticles Improved Labeling of Neural
           Stem Cells and Allowed Their Visualization by ex vivo MRI after
           Transplantation in the Mouse Brain

      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of superparamagnetic iron oxide-labeled cells can be used as a non-invasive technique to track stem cells after transplantation. The aim of this study was to (1) evaluate labeling efficiency of D-mannose-coated maghemite nanoparticles (D-mannose(γ-Fe2O3)) in neural stem cells (NSC) in comparison to the uncoated nanoparticles, (2) assess nanoparticle utilization as MRI contrast agent to visualize NSC transplanted into the mouse brain, and (3) test nanoparticle biocompatibility. D-mannose(γ-Fe2O3) labeled the NSC better than the uncoated nanoparticles. The labeled cells were visualized by ex vivo MRI and their localization subsequently confirmed on histological sections. Although the progenitor properties and differentiation of the NSC were not affected by labeling, subtle effects on stem cells could be detected depending on dose increase, including changes in cell proliferation, viability, and neurosphere diameter. D-mannose coating of maghemite nanoparticles improved NSC labeling and allowed for NSC tracking by ex vivo MRI in the mouse brain, but further analysis of the eventual side effects might be necessary before translation to the clinic.

  • Harnessing Neurogenesis and Neuroplasticity with Stem Cell Treatment for
           Addictive Disorders

    • Authors: Sheng-Tzung Tsai, Hock-Kean Liew, Hao-Ming Li, Shinn-Zong Lin, Shin-Yuan Chen
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Drug and alcohol addiction has become an emerging public health issue and is a great burden to patients, their families, and society. It is characterized by high relapse rates and significant morbidity and mortality, and most available treatments result in only modest improvement. These findings highlight the necessity for new approaches to treat addiction. Scientific reports in the past two decades suggest that addiction involves impaired neural plasticity and decreased hippocampal neurogenesis. Stem cell therapy and its derived neurotrophic factors can potentially target the underlying pathophysiology of addiction. Stem cell applications are showing promise in several preclinical studies and may provide new and noninvasive treatment strategies. Future clinical research is warranted to investigate whether stem cell-based therapy could support the treatment of addiction.

  • A Case Series on Natural Conceptions Resulting in Ongoing Pregnancies in
           Menopausal and Prematurely Menopausal Women Following Platelet-Rich Plasma

    • Authors: Konstantinos Pantos, Mara Simopoulou, Agni Pantou, Anna Rapani, Petroula Tsioulou, Nikolaos Nitsos, Stephen Syrkos, Athanasios Pappas, Michael Koutsilieris, Konstantinos Sfakianoudis
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Since the introduction of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in medical practice, various studies have documented that implementing PRP can enhance healing and the anti-aging process, employing angiogenesis regeneration due to the multiple growth factors and cytokines involved. Numerous reports have shown promising results with the use of PRP in ovarian treatment, regarding ovarian regeneration and reactivation of folliculogenesis. This case series reports on two women with premature ovarian failure (POF) aged 40 and 27 years, respectively, and one menopausal woman aged 46 years. All patients presented with lack of menstrual cycle for over a year. The women reported previous failed in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempts, and, after rejecting the option of oocyte donation, they opted for the approach of autologous ovarian PRP treatment. Following PRP treatment, the three patients were invited to conceive naturally. The primary outcome was the restoration of menstruation following autologous ovarian PRP treatment, as well as an improvement in hormonal profile, a decrease in follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) levels, and a concurrent increase in anti-Müllerian hormone (AMH) levels. Further to that, our patients achieved pregnancy through natural conception within 2–6 months following PRP treatment, resulting in currently ongoing complication-free clinical pregnancies – a first report in the literature for menopausal and POF patients. Implementation of PRP should be further investigated through randomized controlled trials (RCTs), as it may hold the key to successful treatment for a certain cohort of patients exploring reproductive treatment options following menopause.

  • Collagen VII Expression is Required in Both Keratinocytes and Fibroblasts
           for Anchoring Fibril Formation in Bilayer Engineered Skin Substitutes

    • Authors: Dorothy M. Supp, Jennifer M. Hahn, Kelly A. Combs, Kevin L. McFarland, Ann Schwentker, Raymond E. Boissy, Steven T. Boyce, Heather M. Powell, Anne W. Lucky
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      The blistering disease Recessive Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa (RDEB) is caused by mutations in the gene encoding collagen VII (COL7), which forms anchoring fibrils that attach the epidermis to the dermis. Cutaneous gene therapy to restore COL7 expression in RDEB patient cells has been proposed, and cultured epithelial autograft containing COL7-modified keratinocytes was previously tested in clinical trials. Because COL7 in normal skin is expressed in both fibroblasts and keratinocytes, cutaneous gene therapy using a bilayer skin substitute may enable faster restoration of anchoring fibrils. Hypothetically, COL7 expression in either dermal fibroblasts or epidermal keratinocytes might be sufficient for functional anchoring fibril formation in a bilayer skin substitute. To test this, engineered skin substitutes (ESS) were prepared using four combinations of normal + RDEB cells: (1) RDEB fibroblasts + RDEB keratinocytes; (2) RDEB fibroblasts + normal keratinocytes; (3) normal fibroblasts + RDEB keratinocytes; and (4) normal fibroblasts + normal keratinocytes. ESS were incubated in vitro for 2 weeks prior to grafting to full-thickness wounds in immunodeficient mice. Biopsies were analyzed in vitro and at 1, 2, or 3 weeks after grafting. COL7 was undetectable in ESS prepared using all RDEB cells (group 1), and macroscopic blistering was observed by 2 weeks after grafting in ESS containing RDEB cells. COL7 was expressed, in vitro and in vivo, in ESS prepared using combinations of normal + RDEB cells (groups 2 and 3) or all normal cells (group 4). However, transmission electron microscopy revealed structurally normal anchoring fibrils, in vitro and by week 2 in vivo, only in ESS prepared using all normal cells (group 4). The results suggest that although COL7 protein is produced in engineered skin when cells in only one layer express the COL7 gene, formation of structurally normal anchoring fibrils appears to require expression of COL7 in both dermal fibroblasts and epidermal keratinocytes.

  • miR-145 Contributes to the Progression of Cervical Carcinoma by Directly
           Regulating FSCN1

    • Authors: Li Ma, Ling-Ling Li
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of our study was to investigate the underlying mechanism and functional role of microRNA-145 (miR-145) in cervical cancer. In this study, quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) was used to detect miR-145 and FSCN1 expression levels in tissues and HeLa cells. Western blotting was performed to determine the protein level of FSCN1. The luciferase assay was used to verify the direct target of miR-145. The CCK-8 assay and 2D colony formation assays were performed to determine the effects of miR-145 mimics or FSCN1 silencing on cell proliferation. miR-145 expression levels were significantly down-regulated, while FSCN1 expression levels were significantly up-regulated in the cervical carcinoma tissues compared with their matched non-cancerous tissues. In addition, FSCN1 expression levels were negatively correlated to miR-145 in tissues. Next, FSCN1 was verified as the direct target of miR-145 in HeLa cells. Moreover, overexpression of miR-145 dramatically inhibited the proliferation of HeLa cells. The silencing of FSCN1 exhibited the similar patterns on cell proliferation as miR-145 overexpression. The miR-145/ FSCN1 axis contributes to the progression of cervical cancer by inhibition of cervical cancer cell proliferation.

  • Reconstruction of the Damaged Dorsal Root Entry Zone by Transplantation of
           Olfactory Ensheathing Cells

    • Authors: Andrew Collins, Ahmed Ibrahim, Daqing Li, Modinat Liadi, Ying Li
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      The dorsal root entry zone is often used in research to examine the disconnection between the central and peripheral parts of the nervous system which occurs following injury. Our laboratory and others have used transplantation of olfactory ensheathing cells (OECs) to repair experimental spinal cord injuries. We have previously used a four dorsal root (C6–T1) transection model to show that transplantation of OECs can reinstate rat forelimb proprioception in a climbing task. Until now, however, we have not looked in detail at the anatomical interaction between OECs and the peripheral/central nervous system regions which form the transitional zone. In this study, we compared short- and long-term OEC survival and their interaction with the surrounding dorsal root tissue. We reveal how transplanted OECs orient toward the spinal cord and allow newly formed axons to travel across into the dorsal horn of the spinal cord. Reconstruction of the dorsal root entry zone was supported by OEC ensheathment of axons at the injured site and also at around 3 mm further away at the dorsal root ganglion. Quantitative analysis revealed no observable difference in dorsal column axonal loss between transplanted and control groups of rats.

  • Neural Stem Cell Transplantation Improves Locomotor Function in Spinal
           Cord Transection Rats Associated with Nerve Regeneration and IGF-1 R

    • Authors: Xiao-Ming Zhao, Xiu-Ying He, Jia Liu, Yang Xu, Fei-Fei Xu, Ya-Xin Tan, Zi-Bin Zhang, Ting-Hua Wang
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Transplantation of neural stem cells (NSCs) is a potential strategy for the treatment of spinal cord transection (SCT). Here we investigated whether transplanted NSCs would improve motor function of rats with SCT and explored the underlying mechanism. First, the rats were divided into sham, SCT, and NSC groups. Rats in the SCT and NSC groups were all subjected to SCT in T10, and were administered with media and NSC transplantation into the lesion site, respectively. Immunohistochemistry was used to label Nestin-, TUNEL-, and NeuN-positive cells and reveal the expression and location of type I insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF-1 R). Locomotor function of hind limbs was assessed by Basso, Beattie, Bresnahan (BBB) score and inclined plane test. The conduction velocity and amplitude of spinal nerve fibers were measured by electrophysiology and the anatomical changes were measured using magnetic resonance imaging. Moreover, expression of IGF-1 R was determined by real-time polymerase chain reaction and western blotting. The results showed that NSCs could survive and differentiate into neurons in vitro and in vivo. SCT-induced deficits were reduced by NSC transplantation, including increase in NeuN-positive cells and decrease in apoptotic cells. Moreover, neurophysiological profiles indicated that the latent period was decreased and the peak-to-peak amplitude of spinal nerve fibers conduction was increased in transplanted rats, while morphological measures indicated that fractional anisotropy and the number of nerve fibers in the site of spinal cord injury were increased after NSC transplantation. In addition, mRNA and protein level of IGF-1 R were increased in the rostral segment in the NSC group, especially in neurons. Therefore, we concluded that NSC transplantation promotes motor function improvement of SCT, which might be associated with activated IGF-1 R, especially in the rostral site. All of the above suggests that this approach has potential for clinical treatment of spinal cord injury.

  • B Lymphocytes are the Target of Mesenchymal Stem Cells Immunoregulatory
           Effect in a Murine Graft-versus-Host Disease Model

    • Authors: Di Lu, Tian Ma, XiangBin Zhou, YanMing Jiang, Yan Han, Hong Li
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      There is growing clinical interest in the utilization of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in the management of acute graft-versus-host disease (aGvHD), yet the effect of major histocompatibility complexes (MHCs) on B lymphocytes in this process has been less well documented. Working in an MHC fully mismatched murine aGvHD model, we found that MSC co-transfer significantly prolonged the survival time of the recipients. More interestingly, analysis on immunophenotypic profiles of posttransplant splenocytes showed that surface expression of CD69 (an early activation marker) and CD86 (a costimulatory molecule) was suppressed predominantly on donor derived B lymphocytes by MSC infusion. Additionally, mRNA level of interleukin-4, a potent B lymphocyte stimulator, was strikingly reduced from MSC-treated mice, while interleukin-10, the regulatory B lymphocytes inductor, was increased; these may underlie the lesser activation of B lymphocytes. In consistence, depletion of B lymphocytes in the transfusion inoculum further prolonged the survival time of aGvHD mice regardless of MSC administration. Therefore, B lymphocytes played an important role in the development of aGvHD, and they are targets in MSC-regulated immune response cascade in vivo. This study may provide a mechanistic clue for the treatment of human clinical aGvHD.

  • Metabolic Syndrome Induces Release of Smaller Extracellular Vesicles from
           Porcine Mesenchymal Stem Cells

      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Mesenchymal stromal/stem cells (MSC) belong to the endogenous cellular reparative system, and can be used exogenously in cell-based therapy. MSC release extracellular vesicles (EV), including exosomes and microvesicles, which mediate some of their therapeutic activity through intercellular communication. We have previously demonstrated that metabolic syndrome (MetS) modifies the cargo packed within swine EV, but whether it influences their phenotypical characteristics remains unclear. This study tested the hypothesis that MetS shifts the size distribution of MSC-derived EV. Adipose tissue-derived MSC-EV subpopulations from Lean (n = 6) and MetS (n = 6) pigs were characterized for number and size using nanoparticle-tracking analysis, flow cytometry, and transmission electron microscopy. Expression of exosomal genes was determined using next-generation RNA-sequencing (RNA-seq). The number of EV released from Lean and MetS pig MSC was similar, yet MetS-MSC yielded a higher proportion of small-size EV (202.4 ± 17.7 nm vs. 280.3 ± 15.1 nm), consistent with exosomes. RNA-seq showed that their EVs were enriched with exosomal markers. Lysosomal activity remained unaltered in MetS-MSC. Therefore, MetS alters the size distribution of MSC-derived EV in favor of exosome release. These observations may reflect MSC injury and membrane recycling in MetS or increased expulsion of waste products, and may have important implications for development of adequate cell-based treatments.

      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Owing to the increasing worldwide burden of liver diseases, the crucial need for safe and effective interventions for treating end-stage liver failure has been a very productive line of inquiry in the discipline of hepatology for many years. Liver transplantation is recognized as the most effective treatment for end-stage liver disease; however, the shortage of donor organs, high medical costs, and lifelong use of immunosuppressive agents represent major drawbacks and demand exploration for alternative treatments. Stem cell-based therapies have been widely studied in the field of liver diseases and are considered to be among the most promising therapies. Herein, we review recent advances in the application of stem cell-related therapies in liver disease with the aim of providing readers with relevant knowledge in this field and inspiration to spur further inquiry.

  • Cells Involved in Urethral Tissue Engineering: Systematic Review

    • Authors: Martina Culenova, Stanislav Ziaran, Lubos Danisovic
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      The urethra is part of the lower urinary tract and its main role is urine voiding. Its complex histological structure makes urethral tissue prone to various injuries with complicated healing processes that often lead to scar formation. Urethral stricture disease can affect both men and women. The occurrence of this pathology is more common in men and thus are previous research has been mainly oriented on male urethra reconstruction. However, commonly used surgical techniques show unsatisfactory results because of complications. The new and progressively developing field of tissue engineering offers promising solutions, which could be applied in the urethral regeneration of both men´s and women´s urethras. The presented systematic review article offers an overview of the cells that have been used in urethral tissue engineering so far. Urine-derived stem cells show a great perspective in respect to urethral tissue engineering. They can be easily harvested and are a promising autologous cell source for the needs of tissue engineering techniques. The presented review also shows the importance of mechanical stimuli application on maturating tissue. Sufficient vascularization and elimination of stricture formation present the biggest challenges not only in customary surgical management but also in tissue-engineering approaches.

  • CD200Fc Improves Neurological Function by Protecting the Blood–brain
           Barrier after Intracerebral Hemorrhage

      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      CD200 is widely distributed in the central nervous system and plays an essential role in the immune response in neurological diseases. However, little is currently known about the effects of CD200 signaling on the blood–brain barrier (BBB) function after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). In this study, the role of CD200 during ICH in an autologous blood induced mouse ICH model was investigated. Following ICH, critical protein expression, BBB permeability, and neurological function were measured with or without CD200Fc administration. Our results showed that both the expression of CD200 and CD200R1 decreased after ICH and administration of CD200Fc attenuated BBB leakage and improved neurological functions. In conclusion, our work demonstrated that CD200Fc might be a potential treatment option for ICH by protecting the BBB and improving functional outcomes.

  • Initiating TrkB/Akt Signaling Cascade Preserves Blood–Brain Barrier
           after Subarachnoid Hemorrhage in Rats

    • Authors: Xiangqian Qi, Juan Liu, Jiejin Wu, Yunke Bi, Cong Han, Guiyun Zhang, Meiqing Lou, Jianfei Lu, Junjia Tang
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      The integrity of the blood–brain barrier (BBB) plays a vital role in affecting the prognosis of subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). This study aimed to investigate activation of the Tropomyosin-related kinase receptor B (TrkB) and its downstream signaling pathway on preserving BBB breakdown after experimental SAH. An endovascular perforation SAH model was applied. N-[2-(5-hydroxy-1H-indol-3-yl) ethyl]-2- oxopiperidine-3-carboxamide (HIOC), the derivative of N-acetyl serotonin (NAS), was intracerebroventricularly administered 3 h after SAH induction. The neurologic scores and brain water content were evaluated in an outcome study. Western blot and immunofluorescence staining were used to investigate the mechanism. The results indicated that HIOC activated the TrkB/Akt pathway, increased the tight junction expression, improved neurologic deficits, and ameliorated brain edema after SAH. Thus, we conclude that initiating the TrkB/Akt signaling cascade preserves BBB breakdown after experimental SAH in rats.

  • The Impact of Limbal Mesenchymal Stromal Cells on Healing of Acute Ocular
           Surface Wounds is Improved by Pre-cultivation and Implantation in the
           Presence of Limbal Epithelial Cells

    • Authors: Elham Nili, Fiona J. Li, Rebecca A. Dawson, Cora Lau, Blair McEwan, Nigel L. Barnett, Steven Weier, Jennifer Walshe, Neil A. Richardson, Damien G. Harkin
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      While limbal epithelial cells are used for treating ocular surface wounds, the therapeutic potential of mesenchymal cells cultivated from the limbal stroma (LMSC) is less clear. We have therefore examined the effects of LMSC when applied to acute ocular surface wounds. LMSC derived from male rabbits (RLMSC) were applied to the ocular surface of female rabbits immediately following removal of the corneal and limbal epithelium. Human amniotic membrane (HAM) was used as the vehicle for implanting the RLMSC. The effects of RLMSC were examined when applied alone (n = 3) and in conjunction with a stratified culture of human limbal epithelial cells (HLE) grown on the opposing surface of the HAM (n = 3). Outcomes were monitored over 3 months in comparison with animals receiving no treatment (n = 3) or treatment with HLE alone on HAM (n = 3). Animals treated with RLMSC (n = 6) displayed faster re-epithelialization (∼90% versus 70% healing after 12 weeks), with best results being observed when RLMSC were pre-cultivated and implanted in the presence of HLE (p < 0.01; 90% healing by 7 weeks). While all animals displayed conjunctival cells on the corneal surface (by presence of goblet cells and/or keratin 13 expression) and corneal neovascularization, evidence of corneal epithelial regeneration was observed in animals that received RLMSC in the presence of HLE (by staining for keratin 3 and the absence of goblet cells). Conversely, corneal neovascularization was significantly greater when RLMSC were applied in the absence of HLE (

    • Authors: Qian Li, Yu Wang, Wenjie Peng, Yanjie Jia, Jinhua Tang, Wanwei Li, John H. Zhang, Jun Yang
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a type of neurodegenerative disorder and the most common form of dementia. MicroRNA (miRNA) has been shown to play a role in various diseases, including AD. It also has been reported to regulate autophagy. We extracted miRNA from blood samples and constructed an miRNA-101a lentivirus vector. In this study we found the level of miRNA-101a was significantly reduced in the plasma of patients with AD and APPswe/PS1ΔE9 transgenic mice. The relative expression of miRNA-101a exhibited a relatively high diagnostic performance (area under receiver operating characteristic curve: 0.8725) in the prediction of AD with a sensitivity of 0.913 and a specificity of 0.733 at the threshold of 0.6463. Under electron microscopy, autophagic vacuoles in AD-related cells numbered more than the cells up-regulating miRNA-101a in the in vitro experiments. Dual-luciferase reporter assay and western blot results proved that the MAPK1 pathway plays a role in the formation of autophagic vacuoles in AD. This study found that the autophagy phenomenon regulated by miRNA-101a via the MAPK pathway might be a new mechanism in AD. This could provide new insights into AD formation and treatment.

  • Detection of Crossed Cerebellar Diaschisis by Intravoxel Incoherent Motion
           MR Imaging in Subacute Ischemic Stroke

    • Authors: Juan Wang, Shiteng Suo, Jinyan Zu, Wanqiu Zhu, Lijun Pan, Shaoli Song, Yang Li, Lei Li, Zengai Chen, Jianrong Xu
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Intravoxel incoherent motion has received extensive attention in brain studies for its potential as a non-invasive magnetic resonance perfusion method. However, studies on intravoxel incoherent motion imaging and crossed cerebellar diaschisis detection are relatively scarce. The aim of our study was to evaluate the feasibility of using intravoxel incoherent motion imaging in crossed cerebellar diaschisis diagnosis in subacute ischemic stroke patients by comparing results from intravoxel incoherent motion imaging, single-photon emission computed tomography, and arterial spin-labeling perfusion methods. In total, 39 patients with subacute ischemic stroke who underwent intravoxel incoherent motion, arterial spin-labeling, and single-photon emission computed tomography scanning were enrolled. Intravoxel incoherent motion-derived perfusion-related parameters including fast diffusion coefficient, vascular volume fraction, arterial spin-labeling-derived cerebral blood flow as well as single-photon emission computed tomography-derived cerebral blood flow of bilateral cerebellum were measured. A crossed cerebellar diaschisis-positive result was considered present with an asymmetry index ≥10% of single-photon emission computed tomography. In the crossed cerebellar diaschisis-positive group, fast diffusion coefficient, arterial spin-labeling-derived cerebral blood flow, and computed tomography-derived cerebral blood flow of the contralateral cerebellum decreased compared with those of the ipsilesional cerebellum; whereas vascular volume fraction significantly increased. The National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale score and infarct volume in the crossed cerebellar diaschisis-positive group were significantly higher than those in the crossed cerebellar diaschisis-negative group. A positive correlation was detected between the fast diffusion coefficient-based asymmetry index and the single-photon emission computed tomography-based asymmetry index, fast diffusion coefficient-based asymmetry, and arterial spin-labeling based asymmetry index; whereas the vascular volume fraction-based asymmetry index value had a negative correlation with the single-photon emission computed tomography-based asymmetry index and arterial spin-labeling based asymmetry index. Furthermore, the area under the receiver operating characteristic curve value of the arterial spin-labeling-based asymmetry index was 0.923. The fast diffusion coefficient derived from the intravoxel incoherent motion could be valuable for the assessment of crossed cerebellar diaschisis in supratentorial stroke patients.

  • The neuroprotection of hypoxic adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem
           cells in experimental traumatic brain injury

    • Authors: Hui Ma, Ping Kuen Lam, Cindy See Wai Tong, Kin Ki Yan Lo, George Kwok Chu Wong, Wai Sang Poon
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Traumatic brain injury is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide. At present there is no effective treatment. Previous studies have demonstrated that topical application of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells can improve functional recovery in experimental traumatic brain injury. In this study, we evaluated whether hypoxic preconditioned mesenchymal stem cells could enhance the recovery from traumatic brain injury. Traumatic brain injury was induced with an electromagnetically controlled cortical impact device. Two million mesenchymal stem cells derived from the adipose tissue of transgenic green fluorescent protein Sprague-Dawley rats were cultured under either hypoxic (2.5% O2 for 18 hours) (N = 30) or normoxic (18% O2) (N = 30) conditions, then topically applied to the exposed cerebral cortex within 1 hour after traumatic brain injury. A thin layer of fibrin was used to fix the cells in position. No treatment was given to the animals with traumatic brain injury (N = 30). Animals that underwent craniectomy without traumatic brain injury were treated as the sham group (N = 15). Neurological functions were evaluated with water maze, Roto-rod and gait analysis. Animals were sacrificed at days 3, 7, and 14 for microscopic examinations and real-time polymerase chain reaction analysis. The rats treated with hypoxic mesenchymal stem cells showed the greatest improvement in neurological function recovery. More green fluorescent protein-positive cells were found in the injured brain parenchyma treated with hypoxic mesenchymal stem cells that co-expressed glial fibrillary acidic protein, Nestin, and NeuN. Moreover, there was early astrocytosis triggered by the infiltration of more glial fibrillary acidic protein-positive cells and microgliosis was suppressed with fewer ionized calcium binding adapter molecule 1-positive cells in the penumbra region of hypoxic mesenchymal stem cells group at day 3. Compared with normoxic mesenchymal stem cells and traumatic brain injury only groups, there was significantly (p < 0.05) less neuronal death in both the hippocampus and penumbral regions in sections treated with hypoxic mesenchymal stem cells as determined by Cresyl violet and terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end-labeling staining respectively. The expression of pro-inflammatory genes (interleukin 6, interleukin 1a, interleukin 1b, tumor necrosis factor α) was upregulated and apoptotic gene (Caspase-3) expression was suppressed at day 3. Anti-inflammatory (interleukin 10) and anti-apoptotic (BCL2 associated agonist of cell death) gene expression was upregulated at days 7 and 14. Our study showed that a hypoxic precondition enhanced the beneficial effects of mesenchymal stem cells on neurological recovery after traumatic brain injury.

      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Autologous nerve grafting is widely accepted as the gold standard treatment for segmental nerve defects. To overcome the inevitable disadvantages of the original method, alternative methods such as the tubulization technique have been developed. Several studies have investigated the characteristics of an ideal nerve conduit in terms of supportive cells, scaffolds, growth factors, and vascularity. Previously, we confirmed that biological scaffold-free conduits fabricated from human dermal fibroblasts promote nerve regeneration in a rat sciatic nerve injury model. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility of biological scaffold-free conduits composed of autologous dermal fibroblasts using a large-animal model. Six male beagle dogs were used in this study. Eight weeks before surgery, dermal fibroblasts were harvested from their groin skin and grown in culture. Bio 3D conduits were assembled from proliferating dermal fibroblasts using a Bio 3D printer. The ulnar nerve in each dog’s forelimb was exposed under general anesthesia and sharply cut to create a 5 mm interstump gap, which was bridged by the prepared 8 mm Bio 3D conduit. Ten weeks after surgery, nerve regeneration was investigated. Electrophysiological studies detected compound muscle action potentials (CMAPs) of the hypothenar muscles and motor nerve conduction velocity (MNCV) in all animals. Macroscopic observation showed regenerated ulnar nerves. Low-level hypothenar muscle atrophy was confirmed. Immunohistochemical, histological, and morphometric studies confirmed the existence of many myelinated axons through the Bio 3D conduit. No severe adverse event was reported. Hypothenar muscles were re-innervated by regenerated nerve fibers through the Bio 3D conduit. The scaffold-free Bio 3D conduit fabricated from autologous dermal fibroblasts is effective for nerve regeneration in a canine ulnar nerve injury model. This technology was feasible as a treatment for peripheral nerve injury and segmental nerve defects in a preclinical setting.

  • A Hallmark Clinical Study of Cord Blood Therapy in Adults with Ischemic

    • Authors: Paul R. Sanberg, Jared Ehrhart
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      The therapeutic application of human umbilical cord blood cells has been an area of great interest for at least the last 25 years. Currently, cord blood cells are approved for reconstitution of the bone marrow following myeloablation in both young and old patients with myeloid malignancies and other blood cancers. Translational studies investigating alternative uses of cord blood have also shown that these cells not only stimulate neurogenesis in the aged brain but are also potentially therapeutic in the treatment of adult neurodegenerative disorders including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, ischemic stroke, traumatic brain injury, and Parkinson’s disease. Recent advances in the clinical application of cord blood cells by Dr. Joanne Kurtzberg and colleagues have found that non-HLA matched allogeneic banked cord blood units in immunocompetent patients with ischemic stroke are safe and well tolerated. Although the exact mechanism(s) of action that provide the beneficial effects observed from a cord blood cell-based therapy are currently unknown, several studies using models of neurodegenerative disease have shown these cells are immune-modulatory and anti-inflammatory. Thus, any future clinical studies investigating the efficacy of this cord blood cell therapeutic would strongly benefit from the inclusion of methodologies to determine changes in both markers of inflammation and the response of immune tissues, such as the spleen, in subjects receiving cell infusion.

  • (-)-Phenserine Ameliorates Contusion Volume, Neuroinflammation, and
           Behavioral Impairments Induced by Traumatic Brain Injury in Mice

    • Authors: Shih-Chang Hsueh, Daniela Lecca, Nigel H. Greig, Jia-Yi Wang, Warren Selman, Barry J. Hoffer, Jonathan P. Miller, Yung-Hsiao Chiang
      Abstract: Cell Transplantation, Ahead of Print.
      Traumatic brain injury (TBI), a major cause of mortality and morbidity, affects 10 million people worldwide, with limited treatment options. We have previously shown that (-)-phenserine (Phen), an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor originally designed and tested in clinical phase III trials for Alzheimer’s disease, can reduce neurodegeneration after TBI and reduce cognitive impairments induced by mild TBI. In this study, we used a mouse model of moderate to severe TBI by controlled cortical impact to assess the effects of Phen on post-trauma histochemical and behavioral changes. Animals were treated with Phen (2.5 mg/kg, IP, BID) for 5 days started on the day of injury and the effects were evaluated by behavioral and histological examinations at 1 and 2 weeks after injury. Phen significantly attenuated TBI-induced contusion volume, enlargement of the lateral ventricle, and behavioral impairments in motor asymmetry, sensorimotor functions, motor coordination, and balance functions. The morphology of microglia was shifted to an active from a resting form after TBI, and Phen dramatically reduced the ratio of activated to resting microglia, suggesting that Phen also mitigates neuroinflammation after TBI. While Phen has potent anti-acetylcholinesterase activity, its (+) isomer Posiphen shares many neuroprotective properties but is almost completely devoid of anti-acetylcholinesterase activity. We evaluated Posiphen at a similar dose to Phen and found similar mitigation in lateral ventricular size increase, motor asymmetry, motor coordination, and balance function, suggesting the improvement of these histological and behavioral tests by Phen treatment occur via pathways other than anti-acetylcholinesterase inhibition. However, the reduction of lesion size and improvement of sensorimotor function by Posiphen were much smaller than with equivalent doses of Phen. Taken together, these results show that post-injury treatment with Phen over 5 days significantly ameliorates severity of TBI. These data suggest a potential development of this compound for clinical use in TBI therapy.
