A microfluidic array for real-time live-cell imaging of human and rodent pancreatic islets.
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-04-12)
In this study, we present a microfluidic array for high-resolution imaging of individual pancreatic islets. The device is based on hydrodynamic trapping principle and enables real-time analysis of islet cellular responses ...
Hand-assisted robotic right donor nephrectomy in patient with total situs inversus: A case report.
(Elsevier: Creative Commons, 2016)
Total situs inversus" is an infrequent congenital condition. The robot has been already proved as a safe and attractive approach for living donor nephrectomies. We report here the first right donor nephrectomy in a patient ...
Sustained delivery of vincristine inside an orthotopic mouse sarcoma model decreases tumor growth
Background Sarcoma accounts for 20% of solid tumors in children. Surgery has significant morbidity. We hypothesized that delivering chemotherapy directly into tumors through sustained release silk systems could slow ...
Mesenchymal Stem Cells Synergize with 635, 532, and 405 nm Laser Wavelengths in Renal Fibrosis: A Pilot Study.
(Photomedicine and Laser Surgery, 2016-11)
Objective: To address whether a single treatment of one of three visible light wavelengths, 635, 532, and 405 nm (constant wave, energy density 2.9 J/m2), could affect the hallmarks of established renal fibrosis and whether ...
Utility of Serum miR-125b as a Diagnostic and Prognostic Indicator and Its Alliance with a Panel of Tumor Suppressor Genes in Epithelial Ovarian Cancer.
(Public Library of Science, 2016-04-19)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been found to be dysregulated in epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) and may function as either tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) or as oncogenes. Hypermethylation of miRNA silences the tumour suppressive ...
De novo gastric adenocarcinoma 1 year after sleeve gastrectomy in a transplant patient.
Abstract INTRODUCTION: It has been reported in the literature that upper gastrointestinal malignancies after bariatric surgery are mostly gastro-esophageal, although it is not clear whether bariatric surgery represents ...
