J Control Release. 2017;264:112-126 pubmed publisher..MSC-EVs enhance angiogenesis in ischemic limbs, most likely via the overexpression of VEGFR1 and VEGFR2 in endothelial cells. These findings reveal a novel mechanism of activating receptors by MSC-EVs influence the angiogenesis. ..

Sci Rep. 2017;7:13284 pubmed publisher..Scintigraphy images showed that tumor uptake was statically higher in athyroid mice than in control mice. These data suggest that these optimized conditions for thyroid ablation could be helpful to establish an in vivo mouse model. ..
