CDI’s human iPSC-derived heart cells, cardiomyocytes Icel , have properties very similar to primary human cells and are therefore a relevant model system for functional analysis required. In addition, CDI produce the only company with the ability to iPS cells and differentiate them in great numbers and in high quality. Purity of a typical standard blood collection, which MCW perform this series of experiments We are particularly excited about this project, because we see them as a harbinger of the next great scientific wave: the link between genotype and phenotype by iPSC derived terminal tissue cells.. Funding this grant allows Cellular Dynamics in an unprecedented 250 human iPS lines as well as heart cells generate Emile lines, said Emile Nuwaysir, Chief Operating Officer of CDI.

This grant also shows the strength of the collaboration between academic researchers and a company that performs cutting-edge research. .. HyperGen are scientists from six universities and the NHLBI, to identify to identify the genetic contributions to hypertension. HyperGen is unique because it is based comprises both includes both Caucasian and African-Americans and is one of the largest genome-wide association studies with extensive clinical data available. This grant on years of our research builds on genes for this disease identify We now have the wonderful opportunity to study the latest stem cell technology for the human heart cells in the laboratory to benefit, said Broeckel, Broeckel, Professor of Pediatrics, Medicine and Physiology MCW and associate Director at the Children Research Institute.

Lungs are removed from a donor with blood no longer active, and soon lack of adequate lack of sufficient amounts of oxygen. Therefore, they are ‘ischemic ‘during transport to the prospective recipient of so-called ischemia – reperfusion injury was. This condition provides an important, life-threatening complication of lung transplantation, and of the transplanted of the transplanted lung and reperfused. As the demand for donor lungs far exceeds the available supply, we found of a means of preventing ischemia-reperfusion represent a major breakthrough in the field.

‘We are very pleased to put the CTA for ITMN-191 have on the program we put in last January,’said Dan Welch, President and CEO of InterMune. ‘This is the first time We look forward to a compound from the first discovery of the electronic submission of a CTA, a remarkable achievement. We look forward to securing the authorization to proceed with our first clinical trial of ITMN-191 that go to anticipate we will begin before the end of this year. ‘.. The CTA also describes the production of several batches of successful GMP ITMN-191 agent and the development of a medicament ITMN-191 formulation this in Phase I clinical development program intended to be used.

He added that it was possible that imatinib may as rare in other tumors or diseases, or in rare subsets frequent diseases where PDGFR or other targets are activated useful.

He said, explains the effectiveness of imatinib admit in several cases of metastatic DFSP, so he and his colleagues in other centers in the U.S., Belgium and Switzerland set that see if that would cellular genetic and kinase profiles in DFSP with clinical correlate responses to imatinib. (more…)

The research looked at 30 patients with a mean age of 17 years who were treated badly in their first stage of Hodgkin’s disease. A median of five, 21 – day cycles of GV was administered to each patient. Results showed 19 of 25 patients had measurable responses with six with complete response, 11 is a very good partial response , and two had a partial remission. And while the one-year, event-free survival and overall survival rates measured 59.5 % and 86 % respectively, the study team notes that further evaluation of GV is warranted for this population of patients.

Both methods are based on a so-called ‘ quadrupole time – of-flight mass spectrometer ‘ . Zenobi explains that such measuring instruments used used in many areas today. Samples for QTOF mass spectrometry generally generally in solution. The solution is electrosprayed, desolvation with the additional aid of a gas , the tiny droplets give rise to ions, the characteristics of the analyte and the QTOF are instrument measures..

As flu season closer pulling along with the potential for resurgence in H1N1, leading infectious diseases doctors, hospital epidemiologists and infection preventionists scientific community recommendation: officials and the public should use the latest findings as a guide in H1N1 prevention and protection procedures require officers to based recommendations for the public and healthcare workers gained on scientific knowledge and frontline experience of the outbreak this summer.

In the case of certain procedures, aerosolize the virus could potentially whereby for airborne transmission should nurses wear respirators. The method justifies include this additional precaution: bronchoscopy, open suctioning of airway secretions, resuscitation with emergency intubation or cardiac pulmonary resuscitation and intubation. Needed needed the protection of medical personnel who may be exposed to the H1N1 virus, is not with respirators in situations other than when it is obscured to be the potential for the virus clever, said Anne Gershon, president of IDSA. Not breathing provide enhanced protection against the H1N1 virus. Improper use could lead to a shortage of respirators, the the prevention and control of air truly pathogens such as tuberculosis.
