The Revised Cardiac Risk Index (RCRI) was designed to predict risk for cardiac events following non-cardiac surgery. However, there is a paucity of literature that directly addresses the relationship between RCRI and non-cardiac outcomes following posterior lumbar decompression (PLD). The objective of this study is to determine the ability of RCRI to predict non-cardiac adverse events following PLD.
Hematopoietic stem cell function is closely tied to circadian rhythms. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Golan et al. (2018) identify crosstalk between circadian hormone signals, the inflammatory cytokine TNF, and bone marrow macrophages as a key regulator of HSC proliferation, differentiation, and self-renewal in the bone marrow.
Engineering cardiac tissue that accurately recapitulates adult myocardium is critical for advancing disease modeling, drug screening, and regenerative medicine. Ronaldson-Bouchard et al. report a new strategy for generating cardiac tissues from stem-cell-derived cardiomyocytes that reach a maturation level closer to human adult cardiac structure and function.
The advent of human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) has benefited many fields, from regenerative medicine to disease modeling, with an especially profound effect in cardiac research. Coupled with other novel technologies in genome engineering, hPSCs offer a great opportunity to delineate human cardiac lineages, investigate inherited cardiovascular diseases, and assess the safety and efficacy of cell-based therapies. In this review, we provide an overview of methods for generating genetically engineered hPSC ...
The mechanisms responsible for maintaining ribosomal component stoichiometry, which is critical during cell fate transitions, are currently not well understood. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Corsini et al. (2018) demonstrate that the transcription and splicing-associated factor HTATSF1 controls stem cell fate by coordinately regulating ribosomal protein and RNA production.
The discovery of gene- and cell-based strategies has opened a new area to investigate novel approaches for the treatment of many conditions caused by cardiac cell failure. The TBX18 (T-box 18) transcription factor is considered as a prominent factor in the sinoatrial node (SAN) formation during the embryonic development. In this in vitro study, the effect of TBX18 gene expression on human-induced pluripotent-stem-cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hiPS-CMs) to induce pacemaker-like cells was examined.
The neural stem-cell marker nestin is expressed in hair follicle stem cells located in the bulge area which are termed hair-follicle-associated pluripotent (HAP) stem cells. HAP stem cells can differentiate into neurons, glia, keratinocytes, smooth muscle cells, and melanocytes in vitro. Subsequently, we demonstrated that HAP stem cells could affect nerve and spinal cord regeneration in mouse models. We subsequently demonstrated that HAP stem cells differentiated into beating cardiac muscle cells. The diff...
The aim of the present study is to develop in vitro experimental analytical method for the electrophysiological properties of allogeneic induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (CMs) in cardiac conduction defect model.
Radial glia-like neural stem cells (RGLs) in the mouse hippocampus generate neurons throughout life, but RGL maintenance mechanisms remain unclear. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Zhou et al. (2018) identified Mfge8, a well-known mediator of the "eat-me" signal, as a factor that reinforces quiescence and protects the RGL niche from depletion.
Stem cell-based clinical interventions are increasingly advancing through preclinical testing and approaching clinical trials. The complexity and diversity of these approaches, and the confusion created by unproven and untested stem cell-based "therapies," create a growing need for a more comprehensive review of these early-stage human trials to ensure they place the patients at minimal risk of adverse events but are also based on solid evidence of preclinical efficacy with a clear scientific rationale for ...
Stem cells are a promising solution for the treatment of heart failure due to their ability to repopulate injured myocardium and restore cardiac function. However, many hindrances (such as low survival/viability and integration of transplanted cells, poor homing and cardiac differentiation efficiency, and inadequate cell retention and engraftment) compromise the full regenerative potential provided by stem cells. Therefore, it is necessary to optimize stem cell/progenitor therapy to improve clinical efficac...
Hemorrhagic cystitis (HC) is usually a serious complication in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) recipients. In this study, our aim is to define risk factors and outcomes for patients with HC in allo-HSCT setting.
Stem cell-based cardiac regenerative therapy is expected to be a promising strategy for the treatment of severe heart diseases. Pluripotent stem cells enabled us to reconstruct regenerated myocardium in injured hearts as an engineered tissue aiming for cardiac regeneration. To establish a long-term survival of transplanted three-dimensional (3D) engineered heart tissues in vivo, it is indispensable to induce microcapillaries into the engineered tissues after transplantation. Using temperature-responsive cul...
Myelodysplastic syndromes are hematologic malignancies with few treatment options and a propensity to transform to acute myeloid leukemia. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Sun et al. (2018) report that low SIRT1 levels in myelodysplastic stem cells contribute to aberrant self-renewal through enabling hyperacetylation and reduced activity of TET2.
In order to compare the effect between haploidentical (HID) stem cell transplantation (HSCT) and matched sibling donor (MSD) stem cell transplantation for high-risk acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in first complete remission status (CR1), we retrospectively studied 170 cases who received stem cell transplantation from Jan 2008 to Jul 2015 in Peking University People's Hospital. We divided all cases into MSD group (43 cases) and HID (127 cases) group. Patients in HID and MSD group displayed similar baseline cha...
Proper control of multipotent/stem cell number and fate is essential for ensuing organ formation during development. β1-integrin, a subfamily of cell surface receptors, has a conserved role in maintenance of multipotent/stem cells, including renal progenitor cells, follicle stem cells, epidermal stem cells and neural stem cells. However, it remains unclear whether β1-integrin has a role in cardiac progenitor cell (CPC) development. Here we show that a mesodermal deletion of β1-integrin decreases Isl1 cel...
Little is currently known about how cancer stem-like cells (CSCs) interact with their more restricted progeny. In this issue of Cell Stem Cell, Wang et al. (2018) demonstrate a novel bidirectional signaling axis between CSCs and their progeny that is mediated by brain-derived neurotrophic factor and VGF accelerating glioma progression.
Psoriasis is a systemic chronic inflammatory condition associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Data demonstrating that decreased skin inflammation reduces cardiovascular events in psoriasis patients may be generalizable to other chronic inflammatory states with heightened cardiovascular risk.
A large number of clinical trials have shown stem cell therapy to be a promising therapeutic approach for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases. Since the first transplantation into human patients, several stem cell types have been applied in this field, including bone marrow derived stem cells, cardiac progenitors as well as embryonic stem cells and their derivatives. However, results obtained from clinical studies are inconsistent and stem cell-based improvement of heart performance and cardiac remodel...
High salt intake is one independent risk factor for cardiac hypertrophy. Polycystic kidney disease 2-like 1 (PKD2L1, also called TRPP3) acts as a sour sensor in taste cells, and its possible role in the cardiovascular system is unknown. Here, we report that knockout of PKD2L1 exacerbated high-salt diet (HSD)-induced cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis, accompanied by cardiac dysfunction and reduced cardiac mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation and enzyme activity. Furthermore, knockdown of PKD2L1 led to more...
Hyperglycemia is an important risk factor for the most severe cardiovascular diseases in patients with diabetes. It has been demonstrated that cardiac stem cells (CSCs) play a pivotal role in the maintenance of cardiac homeostasis and regeneration. However, the mechanism underlying the influence of diabetes on CSCs remains unclear. This study demonstrated that hyperglycemia might promote adipogenesis in CSCs, which induces a decline in myocardial regeneration capability in diabetes.
Anxiety, depression and stress are exceedingly common in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). They increase the risk of cardiac events and are associated with much worse outcomes. A causal relationships exists between anxiety/depression and adverse cardiac events such as acute myocardial infarction and sudden cardiac death. Various treatments, including psychological therapies and pharmacotherapy, can used to treat patients with these disorders. This review discusses the epidemiology, pathogenesis an...
Transplantation of human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes is superior to somatic stem cell therapy for restoring cardiac function and oxygen consumption in a porcine model of myocardial infarction.
Somatic stem cell (SC) therapy can improve cardiac performance following ischemic injury. In this study, we investigated whether induced pluripotent SC-derived cardiomyocytes (iPS-CMs) are more effective than somatic SCs, such as skeletal myoblasts (SM) and mesenchymal (M)SCs, in promoting functional recovery upon transplantation in a porcine model of myocardial infarction (MI).
An essential aspect of stem cell in vitro culture and in vivo therapy is achieving sustained levels of growth factors to support stem cell survival and expansion, while maintaining their multipotency and differentiation potential. This study investigated the ability of dextrin (~74,000 g/mol; 27.8 mol% succinoylation) conjugated to epidermal growth factor (EGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF; or FGF-2) (3.9 and 6.7% w/w protein loading, respectively) to support the expansion and differentiatio...
Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) transplantation has emerged as a promising therapeutic strategy for acute myocardial infarction. However, there are still limitations for this therapy, such as low survival rate and poor cardiac differentiation potential of MSCs. In this study, we genetically engineered MSCs using ex vivo adeno-associated virus (AAV) transduction to overexpress Akt1 and Wnt11, which are well-characterized genes involved in MSC proliferation and cardiac differentiation. Our results showed that i...
