BACKGROUND In an attempt to establish some consensus on the proper use and design of experimental animal models in musculoskeletal research, AOVET (the veterinary specialty group of the AO Foundation) in concert with the AO Research Institute (ARI), and the European Academy for the Study of Scientific and Technological Advance, convened a group of(More)
Analyte affinity capture by surface-immobilized diagnostic agents is a routinely used assay format for profiling numerous medically and technologically important target analytes. These assays suffer from numerous performance limitations, including sensitivity and rapidity. Assay miniaturization is advocated to improve surface-capture performance,(More)
1 COMMENTARY " " T e pace of basic discoveries in all areas of biomedicine is accelerating. Yet, translation of this knowledge into concrete improvements in clinical medicine continues to lag behind the pace of discovery. Stakeholders from around the world who seek successful biomedical translation met in May 2014 in Berlin, Germany, to identify barriers(More)
Despite clinical, material, and pharmaceutical advances, infection remains a major obstacle in total joint revision surgery. Successful solutions must extend beyond bulk biomaterial and device modifications, integrating locally delivered pharmaceuticals and physiological cues at the implant site, or within large bone defects with prominent avascular spaces.(More)
In this issue of Diabetes, Kato et al. (1) describe new results for dermal wound healing in full-thickness skin defects in Zucker diabetic fatty (ZDF) rats. The team fabricated and applied transplanted living cell sheets comprising allogeneic adipose-derived stem cells (ASCs) harvested from the inguinal fat pads of normal rats. They attempt to address the(More)
Increasing evidence reveals that traditional pharmacokinetics parameters based on plasma drug concentrations are insufficient to reliably demonstrate accurate pharmacological effects of drugs in target organs or cells in vivo. This underscores the increasing need to improve the types and qualities of cellular pharmacokinetic information for drug preclinical(More)
Myocardial infarction (MI) results in damaged heart tissue which can progress to severely reduce cardiac function, leading to death. Recent studies have injected dissociated, suspended cardiac cells into coronary arteries to restore function with limited results attributed to poor cell retention and cell death. Extracellular matrix (ECM) injected into(More)
Nearly 1.3 million total joint replacement procedures are performed in the United States annually, with numbers projected to rise exponentially in the coming decades. Although finite infection rates for these procedures remain consistently low, device-related infections represent a significant cause of implant failure, requiring secondary or revision(More)
