PandeyAbstractMechanical thrombectomy is now at the forefront of the treatment of large vessel acute ischemic stroke (AIS). Selective intra-arterial (IA) access has opened a new avenue for neuroprotection in AIS that has the potential to maximize local benefit while minimizing systemic effects. On a cellular level, neuroprotective strategies are aimed at reducing inflammation and free-radical formation, maintaining blood-brain barrier fidelity...

Contributors : Tadashi Sunohara ; Asuka MorizaneSeries Type : Non-coding RNA profiling by arrayOrganism :Cell-based therapy is a promising treatment for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson ’s disease or cardiac disease. Similarly, reconstruction of the corticospinal tract by cell transplantation is expected as a treatment for stroke and degenerative disease. For efficient cell integration to the corticospinal tract after transplantation, the induction or selection of corticofugal projection neuron (CFuPN) is important. However, no CFuPN specific surface markers for the purification are known. Recently, miRN...

In conclusion, our data show how oncogenic and tumor-suppressive drivers of cellular senescence act to regulate surveillance processes that can be circumvented to enable SnCs to elude immune recognition but can be reversed by cell surface-targeted interventions to purge the SnCs that persist in vitro and in patients. Since eliminating SnCs can prevent tumor progression, delay the onset of degenerative diseases, and restore fitness; since NKG2D-Ls are not widely expressed in healthy human tissues and NKG2D-L shedding is an evasion mechanism also employed by tumor cells; and since increasing numbers of B cells express NKG2D ...

Previously, small sized voice-coil actuators utilizing assembled magnets have been developed to achieve displacements up to 500 µm. Here, we propose a novel MEMS electromagnetic actuator employing a multipole permanent magnet with a finely pitched chessboard pattern and stacked multilayer Si-based guideways, ...

Even established, invasive devices such as the pulmonary artery catheter and transpulmonary thermodilution have still an evidence-based place in the perioperative setting, albeit only in special patient populations. Accumulating evidence suggests to use continuous haemodynamic monitoring, especially flow-based variables such as stroke volume or cardiac output t...
