Publication date: Available online 13 December 2018Source: NeuroImageAuthor(s): Rui Cao, Jun Li, Chenchu Zhang, Zhiyi Zuo, Song HuAbstractCerebral small vessel disease has been linked to cognitive, psychiatric and physical disabilities, especially in the elderly. However, the underlying pathophysiology remains incompletely understood, largely due to the limited accessibility of these small vessels in the live brain. Here, we report an intravital imaging and analysis platform for high-resolution, quantitative and comprehensive characterization of pathological alterations in the mouse cerebral microvasculature. By exploiting...

Nerve-repair startup Renerva said today it has received $2.4 million in funding from the U.S. Department of Defense. The Pittsburgh company is developing a periheral nerve matrix (PNM), an injectable gel derived from porcine tissue to help repair and regenerate injured peripheral nerves. The Medical Technology Enterprise Consortium (MTEC) Award award will enable Renerva to complete its preclinical program and begin human clinical trials. PNM has the potential to play a significant role in accelerating and improving structural and functional recovery following different modalities of nerve injury, according t...
