- ... Exposure to nicotine in smoking contributes to most unexplained male infertility but the mechanisms remain to be fully elucidated. Zinc (Zn) is an essential trace element in normal growth, development and reproduction. Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnONPs) are well-known antioxidants. Therefore, this work was designed to investigate the potential ability of ZnONPs to protect testis and epididymis in n ...

- ... Being one of the most debilitating complications among diabetic patients, diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) is a paramount point of continuous research. Stem cell therapies have shown promising results. However, limited cell survival and paracrine activities hinder its transfer from bench to bedside. We designed this study to evaluate fluoxetine-pretreatment technique of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) ...
