Gill Lewin, Karyn Concanen, David Youens
The Home Independence Program (HIP), an Australian restorative home care/reablement service for older adults, has been shown to be effective in reducing functional dependency and increasing functional mobility, confidence in everyday activities, and quality of life. These gains were found to translate into a reduced need for ongoing care services and reduced health and aged care costs over time. Despite these positive outcomes, few Australian home care agencies have adopted the service model - a key reason being that few Australian providers employ health professionals, who act as care managers under the HIP service model...

BACKGROUND: Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is well known to protect the heart from ischemia reperfusion injury by specifically modulating the mitochondrial adenosine-triphosphate-linked potassium channel, thereby preserving mitochondrial function. The present study is designed to investigate the H2S preconditioning effect specifically on the mitochondrial subpopulation, namely, interfibrillar (IFM) and subsarcolemmal (SSM) mitochondria. METHODS: Isolated heart perfusion model with the method of Langendorff was used to induce reperfusion injury in rat hearts...

In this study, we compared the impact of H2S pre (HIPC) and post-conditioning (HPOC) on oxidative stress, the prime reason for myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury (I/R), in different compartments of the myocardium, such as the mitochondria beside its subpopulations (interfibrillar (IFM) and subsarcolemmal (SSM) mitochondria) and microsomal fractions in I/R injured rat heart. The results demonstrated that compared to I/R rat heart, HIPC and HPOC treated hearts shows reduced myocardial injury, enhanced antioxidant enzyme activities and reduced the level of TBARS in different cellular compartments...

Androgen deprivation therapy has constituted the main treatment for prostate cancer; however, tumors ultimately progress to hormone-independent prostate cancer (HIPC), and suitable therapeutic strategies for HIPC are not available. Maspin, which is also known as mammary serine protease inhibitor, has been suggested to be a valuable focus for targeted cancer therapy. Specifically, maspin has been shown to be upregulated after androgen ablation therapy. Gemcitabine is used as a first-line therapy for metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, but its disease control rate is low...

Hypoxic-ischemic preconditioning (HIPC) has a neuroprotective effect against a subsequent, more severe perinatal hypoxic-ischemic episode. The protective processes of preconditioning (PC) in the immature brain remain undefined but are most likely related to the immune cells of the central nervous system. To determine the role of astrocytes in HIPC, we initially exposed primary rat astrocytes to oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD) for 30 minutes as a PC stimulus. A subsequent more severe insult was induced 24 hours later by exposing the astrocytes to OGD for 3 hours...

Several studies have been reported on the in vitro expansion of stem cells from pancreatic islet (PI-SCs) cultures and on the differentiation of these SCs into multi-lineage cells. These mesenchymal-type cells which exhibit no hormone expression could then be induced to differentiate into hormone-expressing islet-like cell aggregates. It has been shown that human islet-derived precursor cells (hIPCs) were a type of mesenchymal stem cell (MSC). Newly we and some other research groups showed that nestin-positive progenitor/stem cells isolated from islets of human and murine pancreas have phenotypic markers identical to MSCs from bone marrow and that are able to proliferate and differentiate into insulin-producing cells in vitro...

Antimicrobial peptides continue to garner attention as potential alternatives to conventional antibiotics. Hipposin is a histone-derived antimicrobial peptide (HDAP) previously isolated from Atlantic halibut. Though potent against bacteria, its antibacterial mechanism had not been characterized. The mechanism of this peptide is particularly interesting to consider since the full hipposin sequence contains the sequences of parasin and buforin II (BF2), two other known antimicrobial peptides that act via different antibacterial mechanisms...

A major goal of systems biology is the development of models that accurately predict responses to perturbation. Constructing such models requires the collection of dense measurements of system states, yet transformation of data into predictive constructs remains a challenge. To begin to model human immunity, we analyzed immune parameters in depth both at baseline and in response to influenza vaccination. Peripheral blood mononuclear cell transcriptomes, serum titers, cell subpopulation frequencies, and B cell responses were assessed in 63 individuals before and after vaccination and were used to develop a systematic framework to dissect inter- and intra-individual variation and build predictive models of postvaccination antibody responses...

Thrombomodulin (TM) is highly expressed in endothelial cells and plays the key role in maintaining physical homeostasis. In addition, many pieces of evidence also show that TM contains the diagnostic value for malignant diseases. TM has been found to correlate with metastatic status in multiple cancers, but its role in prostate cancer progression remains unclear. TM expression was determined in prostate cancer cells (DU-145 and PC-3 cells) using real-time PCR and Western blotting. TM expression was manipulated in prostate cancer cells using TM-specific shRNA and an overexpression system...

The most recent amendment to the Health Information Privacy Code (HIPC) permits disclosure of health information to third parties where there is "serious" risk to the life and safety of an individual or to others. In this article, I discuss the complexities that arise in the application of the new test for "seriousness" to genetic information and why this standard is subjective and a threat to patient privacy.

Islet transplantation is a widely accepted and practiced cell replacement therapy for treatment of diabetes. However, scarcity of suitable cadaveric pancreas donors is a major limitation that restricts the availability of this therapy to millions of diabetic individuals worldwide. Research in the field has therefore focused on search for an alternate cell source. Various stem/progenitor cells have been considered to be suitable for replacement therapy in diabetes since they have the potential to proliferate and differentiate...

We have examined long-term cultured, human islet-derived stem/precursor cells (hIPC). Whole human islets (HI) were obtained by multi-enzymatic digestion of cadaveric donor pancreases, plated on tissue flasks, and allowed to adhere and expand for several in vitro passages, in order to obtain hIPC. We detected specific stem cell markers (Oct-4, Sox-2, Nanog, ABCG2, Klf-4, CD117) in both intact HI and hIPC. Moreover, hIPC while retaining the expression of Glut-2, Pdx-1, CK-19, and ICA-512, started re-expressing Ngn3, thereby indicating acquisition of a specific pancreatic islet beta cell-oriented phenotype identity...

BACKGROUND: Tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) has been reported to play an important role in ischemia reperfusion injury and ischemic preconditioning (IPC). However, its role is not completely understood. Recently, normothermic IPC (NIPC), hyperthermic IPC (HIPC), preconditioning (PC) with 17-beta estradiol (estrogen, E2) and E2 pretreatment were proven to be effective in reducing ischemia reperfusion injury. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the detrimental effects of TNF-α on the heart, and the protective effects of NIPC, HIPC, E2 PC and pretreatment on TNF-α-induced injury...

Islet replacement is a promising approach for type-1 diabetes treatment, but the shortage of organ donors demands new sources of β-cells. The use of stem/precursor cells may represent an attractive alternative. Islet-derived stem/precursor cells (hIPC) have been isolated from human islet preparations, but neither their origin, nor their contribution to β-cell formation in the adult pancreas, are well understood. To study these cells in more detail hIPC were isolated from purified human islets, cultured and functionally characterized...
