Brain ischemia is the most common disease in the world caused by the disruption of the blood supply of brain tissue. Cell therapy is one of the new and effective strategies used for the prevention of brain damages. Sertoli cells (SCs) can hide from the host immune system and secrete trophic factors. So, these cells have attracted the attention of researchers as a therapeutic option for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. Also, memantine, as a reducer of glutamate and intracellular calcium, is a suitable candidate for the treatment of cerebral ischemia. The principal target of this research was to examine the effect of SC transplantation along with memantine on ischemic injuries.

Non-adherence is an important risk factor for premature allograft failure after kidney transplantation, but outcomes after re-transplantation remains uncertain. Using data from the Australian and New ...
Roundup (R), a formulation that contains glyphosate (G) as the active ingredient, is a commonly used nonselective herbicide that has been proposed to affect male fertility. It is well known that an ad...
Chronic lung allograft dysfunction (CLAD) limits long-term survival after lung transplantation (LT). Ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) promotes chronic rejection (CR) and CLAD, but the underlying mech...
Selective suppression of graft rejection while maintaining anti-pathogen responses has been elusive. Thus far, the most successful strategies to induce suppression of graft rejection relies on inhibit...
The immune rejection mediated by CD4+ T cell and antigen presenting macrophages is the leading cause of corneal transplantation failure. Bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) possess ro...
Since memantine may not only inhibit overactivity of microglial cell, but also repair the damaged neurons and neurogenesis through activation of astroglial cell and release of neurotrophic...
The purpose of this proposed study is to obtain safety and efficacy data on human laryngeal allograft transplantation in an effort to safely use these procedures as a viable reconstructive...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of memantine and buprenorphine on opioid abusing behavior, to determine the effect of memantine and buprenorphine on early relapse and to...
The goal of the proposed study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the drug memantine in individuals with pathological gambling (PG). Thirty subjects with DSM-IV PG will receive 10 w...
The aim of this study is to verify the ability of transglutaminase type 2 to predict rejection or chronic allograft nephropathy of renal allograft. On the basis of biomolecular mechanisms ...
Gonadal neoplasm composed entirely of SERTOLI CELLS or may have a component of GRANULOSA CELLS. Some of the Sertoli cell tumors produce ESTROGEN or ANDROGENS, but seldom in sufficient quantity to cause clinical symptoms such as FEMINIZATION or masculinization (VIRILISM).
Transfer of HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS from BONE MARROW or BLOOD between individuals within the same species (TRANSPLANTATION, HOMOLOGOUS) or transfer within the same individual (TRANSPLANTATION, AUTOLOGOUS). Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been used as an alternative to BONE MARROW TRANSPLANTATION in the treatment of a variety of neoplasms.
A sex cord-gonadal stromal tumor consists of LEYDIG CELLS; SERTOLI CELLS; and FIBROBLASTS in varying proportions and degree of differentiation. Most such tumors produce ANDROGENS in the Leydig cells, formerly known as androblastoma or arrhenoblastoma. Androblastomas occur in the TESTIS or the OVARY causing precocious masculinization in the males, and defeminization, or virilization (VIRILISM) in the females. In some cases, the Sertoli cells produce ESTROGENS.
The transference of BONE MARROW from one human or animal to another for a variety of purposes including HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION or MESENCHYMAL STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION.
An organism that, as a result of transplantation of donor tissue or cells, consists of two or more cell lines descended from at least two zygotes. This state may result in the induction of donor-specific TRANSPLANTATION TOLERANCE.
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
