Mauna Kea touts Cellvizio pancreatic cyst diagnosis data

Mauna Kea (ENT:MKEA) today touted the results from a recently published study of its Cellvizio system which supported the use of the device in diagnosing pancreatic cysts. The Cellvizio device is designed for use in a variety of surgical procedures, providing real time visualization at the microscopic level, Mauna Kea said. Results from the study were published in the World Journal of Gastroenterology, the French company said. In the study, researchers evaluated in vivo and ex vivo confocal endomicroscopy of pancreatic cystic lesions, Mauna Kea reported. The researchers concluded that in vivo nCLE patterns were reproducible in ex vivo pCLE for all major neoplastic pancreatic cysts. “This new peer reviewed study led by Dr. Krishna provides further validation of the application of Cellvizio needle-based CLE in the diagnosis of pancreatic cysts. There is a significant opportunity for clinicians to use optical biopsy with Cellvizio in the often-challenging task of diagnosing pancreatic cysts, allowing them to make faster diagnoses and better treatment decisions to achieve better outcomes for their patients,” CEO Sacha Loiseau said in a prepared release. In May, Mauna Kea touted data from a study examining the use of its Cellvizio platform in assessing acute lung rejection following transplant. Results from follow-up exams of 24 lung transplant patients were used in the study, with CLE video-imaging obtained prior to tissue sampling, Mauna Kea said. Endomicroscopy...

Interstitial lung diseases (ILDs) are a heterogeneous entity of diffuse parenchymal lung diseases characterised by damage of the parenchyma as a result of varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis [1]. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a specific subgroup of ILDs and has a devastating prognosis [2] with a median survival time of 2–3 years [2–4]. Pirfenidone (Esbriet) and nintedanib (Ofev) were approved for IPF treatment, showing a stabilisation of the disease [5, 6], and are the treatments recommended by international guidelines [1]. Nintedanib was shown to increase the risk of bleeding events in ...

Ex Vivo Lung Perfusion (EVLP) is a system that circulates normothermic perfusate into procured lungs, allowing for improved lung function and lung assessment. We investigated whether ventilation with hydrogen gas during EVLP improves the donation after cardiac death (DCD) lung function, and whether this effect persists after actual transplantation.

Limited data exists describing impact of body mass index (BMI) on post-LVAD outcomes. We sought to define the relationship between BMI and adverse events (AE) following LVAD implantation by examining the ISHLT Mechanically Assisted Circulatory Support (IMACS) registry.

Conclusion Multiparametric pulmonary MRI is feasible in lung allografts within an EVLP system. Oxygen-enhanced imaging seems to be a promising marker for ischemic injury, enabling detection of affected lung segments prior to transplantation.

We examined this interplay and response to mTOR inhibition using ERα+ adenocarcinomas from NRL-PRL females in combination with Col1a1tmJae/+ (mCol1a1) mice, which accumulate collagen-I around growing tumors. Orthotopic transplantation of tumor cells to mCol1a1 but not wildtype hosts resulted in striking desmoplasia.
