Cytokines like IL-6, TNF-α, and IL-1β are important mediators of inflammation in many inflammatory diseases, as well as in cellular processes like cell proliferation and cell adhesion. Finding new molecules that decrease cell proliferation, adhesion (inflammatory infiltrate), and pro-inflammatory cytokine release could help in the treatment of many inflammatory diseases. The naturally derived poly(gallic acid) (PGAL), produced enzymatically from gallic acid in aqueous medium, is a non-toxic, the...

Human adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hADMSCs) are believed to be potential key factors for starting the regenerative process after tissue injury. However, an efficient method of delivering these regenerative cells to an external wound site is still lacking. Human amnion and pig skin have long been used as skin wound dressings for the treatment of burns and other skin lesions. Herein, we present the generation of two constructs using these two biomaterials as effective scaffolds for the ...

El acido lisofosfatidico (LPA, del ingles lysophosphatidic acid) es un lipido bioactivo que tiene la capacidad de unirse a receptores acoplados a las proteinas G y mediar a traves de ellos distintas respuestas celulares tales como: proliferacion, migracion, apoptosis y diferenciacion celular. En recientes anos este lipido se ha visto involucrado en patologias como artritis reumatoide y osteoartritis; sin embargo, evidencias sugieren que tambien puede jugar un papel importante durante el desarrol...
