Jiae Seo, Ji-Hun Seo
The goal of this study is to fabricate a stable plasma filtration membrane with anti-biofouling properties via an electrospinning process. To this end, a random-type copolymer consisting of zwitterionic phosphorylcholine (PC) groups and ultraviolet (UV)-crosslinkable phenyl azide groups was synthesized. The zwitterionic PC group provides anti-biofouling properties, and the phenyl azide group enables the stable maintenance of the fibrous nanostructure of hydrophilic zwitterion polymers in aqueous medium via a simple UV curing process...

Anirudh Somani, Reena Rai
BACKGROUND: Venous leg ulcer is a chronic condition, and various treatment modalities are available. Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is one of the newer modalities and it contains fibroblast growth factor (GF), vascular endothelial GF, angiopoitin and platelet-derived GF which enhances the wound healing. Hence, we conducted a randomised controlled trial to compare the efficacy of PRF versus saline dressing in chronic venous leg ulcers. AIM: This study aims to compare the efficacy of autologous PRF with saline dressing in patients with chronic venous leg ulcer and to compare the mean reduction in ulcer area at the end of 4 weeks...

PURPOSE: Covered stents have been demonstrated to reduce restenosis; however, the membrane's limited biocompatibility can still lead to thrombus formation. To obtain optimal surface hemocompatibility, endothelialization of the luminal surface has been proposed. However, the effect of delivery procedures, such as crimping and balloon dilatation, on the endothelial layer has not been quantified. This study investigated the impact of such procedures on endothelialized covered stents in vitro...

Vaginal atrophy is a common condition among peri- and post-menopausal women. Symptoms of vaginal dryness, pruritus, irritation, loss of subcutaneous fat, sparse pubic hair and dyspareunia occur due to decreased estrogen level. Estrogen-based treatments are effective. But many patients are reluctant to be treated due to health concerns. As alternatives, we explored the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and lipofilling. A 67-year-old female patient with vaginal atrophy was referred to our department. Treatment using estrogen cream had failed to improve patient's symptoms...

Oroantral fistulae (OAF) are surgical sequelae that require complete resection and often leave large defects for the surgeon to repair. Closing these lesions is often technique sensitive and requires a detailed protocol, which, if not adhered to, can lead to recurrence. This case report presents a combined approach to closing an OAF by first excising the fistula and then resecting to retrieve the buccal fat pad to form a pedicle graft over the wound site. Next, a platelet-rich fibrin membrane is sandwiched over the buccal fat pad and completely covered by a buccal advancement flap...

BACKGROUND: A comprehensive approach to the evaluation of biologic therapies for musculoskeletal conditions is required to guide appropriate future use. Clinical studies evaluating platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are limited by inadequate reporting of scientific details critical to outcome. We developed minimum reporting requirements for clinical studies evaluating PRP and MSCs using Delphi consensus methods. METHODS: The need for consensus on the minimum reporting requirements for studies evaluating biologics was identified at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons/Orthopaedic Research Society (AAOS/ORS) Biologic Treatments for Orthopaedic Injuries Symposium in 2015 and the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) Biologic Treatments for Sports Injuries II Think Tank in 2015...

In the context of prevascularization strategies for tissue engineering purposes, co-culture systems consisting of outgrowth endothelial cells (OECs) and primary osteoblasts (pOBs) have been established as a promising in vitro tool to study regeneration mechanisms and to identify factors that might positively influence repair processes like wound healing or angiogenesis. The development of autologous injectable platelet rich fibrin (PRF), which can be generated from peripheral blood in a minimal invasive procedure, fulfils several requirements for clinically applicable cell-based tissue engineering strategies...

VS-5584 is a highly selective dual kinase inhibitor which suppresses phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) and mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) activity. Because these kinases are crucially involved in primary hemostasis, we herein investigated the effect of this compound on thrombus formation in vitro and in vivo. Pretreatment of washed platelets (WP) or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) with VS-5584 inhibited the agonist-induced activation of surface glycoprotein complex (GP)IIb/IIIa and the upregulation of P-selectin...
