The objectives of our current work are:
1. To investigate the toxicity of nicotine and its oxidised metabolite, cotinine, on human epithelial cell lines namely BEAS 2B and CALU 3.
2. To examine the toxic effect of the components of E‐cigarette solution on the above mentioned two epithelial cell lines.
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy accelerates motor axon regeneration despite a phenotypically mismatched environmentPoster
A femoral nerve defect model was adapted for the evaluation of proregenerative effects of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). Functional evaluation, histology and qRT-PCR data show differences between sensory and motor-derived nerve transplants and a pro-regenerative effect of ESWT. These data provide evidence for the clinical application of ESWT after autologous nerve transplantation as a novel non-invasive method.READ MORE
