Laser-evoked potentials recover gradually when using dorsal root ganglion stimulation, and this influences nociceptive pathways in neuropathic pain patients
PAIN PRACTICE, v.22, n.3, p.372-380, 2022
Objective Dorsal root ganglion stimulation (DRGS) is able to relieve chronic neuropathic pain. There seems evidence that DRGS might achieve this by gradually influencing pain pathways. We used laser-evoked potentials (LEP) to verify our hypothesis that the recovery of the LEP may reflect DRGS-ind...

Impact of Three Methods of Ischemic Preconditioning on Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury in a Pig Model of Liver Transplantation
JOURNAL OF INVESTIGATIVE SURGERY, v.35, n.4, p.900-909, 2022
Background Ischemic preconditioning (IPC), either direct (DIPC) or remote (RIPC), is a procedure aimed at reducing the harmful effects of ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. Objectives To assess the local and systemic effects of DIPC, RIPC, and both combined, in the pig liver transplant model. Mat...

Aging Aggravates Cachexia in Tumor-Bearing Mice
CANCERS, v.14, n.1, article ID 90, 21p, 2022
Simple Summary Cachexia is a deadly disease that accompanies many different types of cancers. Animal studies on cachexia have so far mostly been conducted using young mice, while cancer in humans is a disease of high age. Mouse models used to date may therefore not be suitable to study cachexia w...
