Neovaginoplasty using Nile Tilapia Fish Skin as a new biological graft in patients with Mayer-Rokitansky-K üster-Hauser syndrome

Mayer –Rokitansky–Kuster–Hauser syndrome is the second most common cause of primary amenorrhea, trailing only gonadal dysgenesis. In patients who failed dilation therapy, neovaginoplasty is an appropriate treatment option. Several biomaterials have been used in this procedure, including peritoneum, amnion, skin grafts and myocutaneous flaps. Nile Tilapia Fish Skin has non-infectious microbiota, morphological structure comparable to human skin, and high in vivo bioresorption. In addition, it showed good outcomes when used as a xenograft for burn treatment.

In this study, a strategy for the simultaneous quantification of 28 nucleobases, nucleosides, and nucleotides using hydrophilic interaction chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (HILIC-MS/MS) with positive/negative ion switching was developed. This method showed good linearity, precision, repeatability, and recovery. Furthermore, it was successfully applied to monitor the postmortem nucleotide degradation of turbot mince during chill (4 °C) and partial freezing (−3 °C) storage for 168 h. It was noted that the patterns of the changes in nucleotide metabolites differed considerably depending on t...

ConclusionDefects in areas of the distal third lower leg anterior, ankle, heel and foot dorsum does need a stable and sufficient soft tissue cover, especially with exposed bony or tendinous tissue or in case of infections or difficult healing tendency.The suralis flap as an alternative to the commonly used free flaps and reduces the surgical effort.

In this study, we identified and characterized a STK17A gene (termed PoSTK17A) from Japanese flounder Paralichthys olivaceus. We also investigated the pro-apoptotic role of PoSTK17A in fish. Real-time quantitative PCR analysis revealed that PoSTK17A is widely present in various Japanese flounder tissues, and dominantly expressed in liver. Immune challenge experiments showed that PoSTK17A expression was upregulated by inflammatory challenge, Edwardsiella tarda infection and DNA-damaging agent cisplatin treatment as well. Immunofluorescence microscopy revealed that the recombinant PoSTK17A proteins are mainly located in the ...

BishopAbstractVarious strategies exist to control noxious cyanobacterial populations, although the application of a newly developed granular compound (sodium carbonate peroxyhydrate ‘SCP’, trade name ‘PAK® 27’ algaecide) containing hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as the active ingredient, has been recently proven as an effective and ecofriendly treatment. However, in aquaculture settings the application of SCP to treat cynobacterial blooms...
