A Method to Enhance Re-Endothelialization of Tissue Engineered Decellularized Allograft Heart ScaffoldsDownload
Allograft tissue is used to reconstruct cardiac birth defects but induces an immune response resulting in allo-sensitization. Decellularization reduces the immune response, however, acellular vascular tissue is thrombogenic. In-vitro endothelialization may attenuate thrombogenicity. Here we offer...
Hypertrophic scar (HTS) is a dermal form of fibroproliferative disorder that develops following deep skin injury. This dermal fibrosis can cause deformities, functional disabilities, and aesthetic disfigurements. The pathophysiology of HTS is not understood due in part, to the lack of an ideal...
Acetyl-L-carnitine to enhance nerve regeneration in carpal tunnel syndrome; a randomized controlled trialDownload
Background Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is the most common form of peripheral nerve injury, involving approximately 3% of the population. While surgery is effective in mild and moderate cases, neurologic and functional recovery are often not complete in severe cases. Therefore, there is a need...
Activation of Natural Killer T cells and Dendritic cells with Caulobacter crescentus: Implications for developing tumour immunityDownload
Cancer remains a leading cause of mortality worldwide. Efforts to develop immuno-therapies to control the growth of cancer, while limiting host cell damage, have focused on targeting specific tumour associated antigens. These treatments have yielded some clinical success however; the limited...
By the year 2020, there is expected to be over 900,000 traumatic amputation survivors living in the United States alone(1). Unfortunately for these survivors, the potential of extremity transplantation is critically limited by the 4-6 hours of preservation time currently offered by standard cold...
