First Ultrasound Thrombolysis in U.S. Performed at Emory University Hospital
...trasound helps temporarily loosen and separate the fibrin
for more blood clot permeability," explains Dr. Chamsuddin. "The loosened fibrins then allow for reception of the infusion of clot-busting medications, which then slowly dissolve the blockage - usually within two to three days." Emory houses two of...
Hepatic Stellate Cells Found Capable of Tissue Repair
...fibrin. In studies of a mouse model with excessive fibrin
deposition in the liver, the researchers found that p75NTR signaling promotes the initial activation of HSC, which stimulates the proliferation of new hepatic cells to replace those that have been damaged. The effects of p75NTR at late stages of HSC ...
Inhibiting Blood to Save the Brain
...gen after the first episode of paralysis using the fibrin
peptide prevented subsequent relapses. It also prevented further microglia activation and damage to myelin in the diseased mice, allowing them to survive with improved motor function. “Importantly, this approach blocks fibrin’s interaction with mic...
A New Rapid 3-D Cell-Growth Technique For Growing Heart Muscle
...gnificantly better properties. The approach uses a fibrin
gel to support rat cardiac cells temporarily, before the fibrin
breaks down as the cells organize into tissue. And while BEHM is still years away from use as a h...
