    OBJECTIVES: Recent advances in regenerative medicine, including hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) transplantation, have brought hope for patients with severe alcoholic liver cirrhosis (ALC). The aim of this study was to assess ...
  • Connexin43 and Connexin47 Alterations after Neural Precursor Cells Transplantation in Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis 

    Theotokis, P.; Kleopa, K. A.; Touloumi, O.; Lagoudaki, R.; Lourbopoulos, A.; Nousiopoulou, E.; Kesidou, E.; Poulatsidou, K. N.; Dardiotis, E.; Hadjigeorgiou, G.; Karacostas, D.; Cifuentes-Diaz, C.; Irinopoulou, T.; Grigoriadis, N. (2015)
    Exogenous transplanted neural precursor cells (NPCs) exhibit miscellaneous immune-modulatory effects in models of autoimmune demyelination. However, the regional interactions of NPCs with the host brain tissue in remissive ...
  • Oval cell proliferation in cirrhosis in rats. An experimental study 

    Tsamandas, A. C.; Antonacopoulou, A.; Kalogeropoulou, C.; Tsota, I.; Zabakis, P.; Giannopoulou, E.; Liava, A.; Tzelepi, V.; Tepetes, K.; Petsas, T.; Kardamakis, D.; Kalofonos, H. P. (2007)
