Publication date: Available online 18 January 2019Source: Biosensors and BioelectronicsAuthor(s): Xiaofeng Liu, Hua Zhang, Shiya Qin, Qing Wang, Xiaohai Yang, Kemin WangAbstractA simple, sensitive, quantitative point-of-care testing (POCT) was developed integrating enzyme-linked DNA supersandwich amplification with optical fiber amplifier. The point-of-care (POC) assay can work in both “Turn-off” mode and “Turn-on” mode. Using myoglobin (Myo) and miRNA-141 as the model biomarker, as low as 0.5 nM Myo and 10 pM miRNA-141 could be detected. More importantly, the optical fiber amplifier, which was...

Authors: Waters C, Wiener RC, Motlagh HM Abstract Background: Secretions accumulate in endotracheal tubes' (ETT) lumens upon their placement in patients. The secretions impact airway resistance and pressure. Secretions potentiate prolonged mechanical ventilation and ventilator-associated pneumonia. Our primary objective in this study was to evaluate an ETT-clearing device (ETT-CD) in its ability to remove secretions from ex vivo ETT lumens. Methods: Forty ETTs, obtained from intensive care patients at extubation, were individually placed into a ventilator field performance testing simulator at 37°C. The pre...

Discussion: Both fetoscopic and US-guided IUHCT were technically feasible, but fetoscopy caused more intraoperative complications in our pilot series. The discrepancy in chimerism detection predicts the challenges in long-term surveillance of donor-cell chimerism. Further studies of long-term outcomes in the non-human primate are valuable for the development of clinical protocols for IUHCT.Fetal Diagn Ther
