Restoring Endothelial Function

6(4):967-79 Fibroblast growth factor 2 promotes endothelial differentiation of adipose tissue-derived stem cells. Ning H, Liu G, Lin G, Yang R, Lue TF, Lin CS. Abstract INTRODUCTION: Adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ADSC) could potentially restore endothelial function in vasculogenic erectile dysfunction (ED). The mechanism for ADSC endothelial differentiation remained unidentified. AIM: To test whether ADSC…

Post Radical Prostatectomy

2009 Mar-Apr;(2):46-51 Modern aspects of pathophysiology and prevention of erectile dysfunction and cavernous fibrosis after radical prostatectomy. Veliev EI, Vanin AF, Kotov SV, Shiahlo VK. Abstract Partial denervation of cavernous tissue (CT) during nerve sparing radical prostatectomy (RPE) can cause development of neuropraxy and cavernous fibrosis (CF) resulting in erectile dysfunction (ED) after operation. We…

Treating ED With Stem Cells

6 Suppl 3:320-7 Potential of adipose-derived stem cells for treatment of erectile dysfunction. Lin G, Banie L, Ning H, Bella AJ, Lin CS, Lue TF. Abstract Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) are a somatic stem cell population contained in fat tissue that possess the ability for self-renewal, differentiation into one or more phenotypes, and functional regeneration…
