Medium Measurement Techniques Applicable to Cell Culture for Cell Therapy

Tuesday June 21, 202213:00 PM CEST/ 20:00 PM JST Our laboratory has previously demonstrated that fluctuations in medium composition in multilayer cultures of epithelial tissues (epidermal and corneal epithelial tissues) with three-dimensional structures can be used to understand the state of the epithelial tissues. In addition, this experience is applied to suspension cultures of iPS cell […]

Lactate as a Marker for Fetal Hypoxia

Prolonged intrapartum hypoxia can result in hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), which affects1.5-2.5 of 1,000 newborns annually. Infants with HIE may develop permanent health conditions and disorders such as cerebral palsy, epilepsy, hearing and vision impairments, and more. During labor, fetal monitoring using cardiotocography (CTG) can screen for hypoxia. CTG has high sensitivity but low predictive […]

Recognition and Management of Community-Acquired Acute Kidney Injury in Low-Resource Settings

Date: Thursday, December 02, 2021 Time:¬†01:00 PM Eastern Standard Time Dr. Ravindra Mehta, an internationally recognized nephrologist, will discuss a multi-country, International Society of Nephrology (ISN) sponsored study demonstrating that a comprehensive program of point-of-care creatinine/eGFR testing, urine dipstick testing, and protocolized care management can improve the recognition of AKI in low-resource settings, improve clinical outcomes, […]

Chloride in Heart Failure Syndrome -its pathophysiologic role and therapeutic implication-

Salt, NaCl, is the most abundant mineral in the human body. Up until recently, the understanding of the pathophysiology and diuretic treatment of heart failure has been focused on sodium and water. Chloride, however, despite flanking sodium as its anionic counterpart in salt, has been ignored. Over the last several years, however, chloride has been […]
