Although various medical diagnostics exist to test biologics for biomarkers, diseases, or proteins of interest; there is currently no point-of-care platform test that is quick, inexpensive, and easy to use. The aim of this work was to further develop a stand-alone, point-of-care medical...
Effects of mechano-electrical feedback on cardiac dynamics: Pro- and anti-arrhythmic effects during alternansDownload
Contraction of the heart has been shown to affect the propagation of action potential (AP). In fact, the electrical waves of the heart propagate through the cardiac tissue and initiate its contraction via excitation-contraction coupling (ECC) while contraction of the heart causes deformations in...
Gene Targeting: A Focus on Acute Myeloid Leukemia Gene Silencing and Detection of Methylated DNA by Exploring the Use of Synthetic Nanocarriers and Nucleic Acid AnalogsDownload
Research in the field of nucleic acids and molecular genetics has enormously enhanced our knowledge about the genetic origins of a myriad of disease. Currently from this knowledge, various gene-targeted therapies and biomarker detection and diagnostic assays are being developed, which are...
Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI) is a non-invasive MRI technique that is sensitive to the diffusion of water molecules within the body. Its ability to encode water displacements enables it to detect changes in neural microstructure, such as those due to normal healthy aging or...
In varsity sports, athletes are more susceptible to lower limb injury than the general population due to their continuous involvement in physically-demanding activity. Additionally, these athletes participate in high-level strength and conditioning training programs to ensure they are reaching...
Pulmonary edema (PE) involves an excess of extravascular lung water (EVLW) due to an imbalance in fluid filtration which results in hypoxia and respiratory distress. Cardiogenic pulmonary edema is a primary clinical feature and therapeutic target in acute heart failure. Current methods in...
Quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) is an emerging magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) post-processing technique that uses phase images from a gradient echo sequence to create magnetic susceptibility maps. QSM is sensitive to paramagnetic iron found in various states of blood, from...
Revealing Key Movement Strategies in Upper Limb Function Using a Novel Standardized Kinematic Assessment ToolDownload
Introduction: Artificial limbs, also known as prostheses, are used by individuals with upper limb loss to replace some of the functionality of the upper limb. Given the wide range of tasks and movements the upper limbs can accomplish, replacing full functionality can be challenging. While...
