Utilization of Machine Perfusion and Nanotechnology for Liver Transplantation

Abstract Over the past four decades, advances in the technology supporting solid organ transplantation have been remarkable. Transplantation is now entering a new era where multidisciplinary approaches, including the use of bioengineering, are being utilized in the pursuit of perfection for the field. In this review article, we will introduce and recap two broad categories that are on the verge of revolutionizing the utilization of donor organs and delivery of immunosuppression, metabolic additives, and gene therapies. Machine perfusion techniques and nanotechnology are areas of significant interest in the transplantation community and make up the next generation of bench to bedside research endeavors. In this review, we will summarize the progress made in the field of machine perfusion and nanotechnology as it applies to liver transplantation.

Authors: Moosavian SP, Arab A, Mehrabani S, Moradi S, Nasirian M Abstract Background: Several studies have investigated the effect of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E on oxidative stress and inflammation, but their findings are inconsistent. The aim of this meta-analysis is to elucidate the overall effects of co-supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E on oxidative stress and inflammation. Methods: We searched titles, abstracts, and keywords of relevant articles indexed in PubMed, ISI, Scopus, and Google Scholar databases up to December 2018 to identify eligible RCT studies. Random effects model was...
