Conventional 3D printing technologies typically rely on open-loop, calibrate-then-print operation procedures. An alternative approach is adaptive 3D printing, which is a closed-loop method that combines real-time feedback control and direct ink writing of functional materials in order to fabricate devices on moving freeform surfaces. Here, it is demonstrated that the changes of states in the 3D printing workspace in terms of the geometries and motions of target surfaces can be perceived by an integrated robotic system aided by computer vision...

The alleviation of pain and prevention of suffering are key aspects of animal welfare. Unfortunately, analgesic drugs are not available for all species. White rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum), representing one of such species, which survive poaching attempts inflicted with severe facial injuries and gunshot wounds, nonetheless require analgesic support. To improve treatment conditions, this study explored the use of carprofen for the treatment of pain and inflammation in white rhinoceros. The pharmacokinetics of 1 mg/kg intramuscular carprofen was evaluated in six healthy white rhinoceros...

There is an unmet need for an optimal scaffold as cell transplantation carrier to induce corneal reconstruction. In this study, a blend membrane was prepared with carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCTS), gelatin, and hyaluronic acid. To investigate its cytocompatibility, primary rabbit corneal epithelial cells (CEpCs) were seeded on it and growth and proliferation were evaluated. The blend membrane was found to be transparent, biodegradable, and suitable for CEpCs attachment and proliferation, which could maintain the epithelial cell-like protein expression of CEpCs...

Zhiqiang Yang, Chunbo Zhai
BACKGROUND: Several retrospective studies have confirmed that video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) following neoadjuvant chemotherapy is a safe and feasible treatment for advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients. As a minimally invasive technique, VATS usually leads to better clinical outcomes and better compliance with adjuvant treatment than conventional thoracotomy. Uniportal VATS (U-VATS) as an alternative option to conventional multi-port VATS has attracted much attention recently because reduced number and size of incisions may help to decrease inflammatory response and reduce postoperative pain for patients...

Fabrication of composite scaffolds is one of the strategies proposed to enhance the functionality of tissue engineered scaffolds for improved tissue regeneration. By combining multiple elements together, unique biomimetic scaffolds with desirable physical and mechanical properties can be tailored for tissue-specific applications. Despite having a highly porous structure, the utility of electrospun fibers (EF) as scaffold is usually hampered by their insufficient mechanical strength. In this study, we attempted to produce a mechanically competent scaffold with cell-guiding ability by fabricating aligned PLGA fibers on decellularized human amniotic membrane (HAM), known to possess favorable tensile and wound healing properties...

Recently, researchers have focused on the micro-mechano-environment and the resulting mechanical cues which can regulate the morphology, structure, and function of cells. As a novel mechanotherapy, negative-pressure wound therapy (NPWT) has revolutionized the treatment of acute and chronic wounds. The effects of mechanics in use of NPWT has been noticed by researchers, and sporadic results have been reported, while the mechanisms of mechanosensitivity and mechanotransduction in affecting cell behaviors and promoting wound healing haven't been elucidated yet...

REVIEW
Bryan G Fry
Many issues and complications in treating snakebite are a result of poor human social, economic and clinical intervention and management. As such, there is scope for significant improvements for reducing incidence and increasing patient outcomes. Snakes do not target humans as prey, but as our dwellings and farms expand ever farther and climate change increases snake activity periods, accidental encounters with snakes seeking water and prey increase drastically. Despite its long history, the snakebite crisis is neglected, ignored, underestimated and fundamentally misunderstood...

OBJECTIVE: Laryngeal cancer is a common malignant tumor in the head and neck, which affects swallowing, breathing, and pronunciation function. In recent years, many long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been shown to be involved in the progression of cancer with the development of gene sequencing, transcriptomics, and bioinformatics. LncRNA Dleu2 is a cancer-related lncRNA that down-regulates tumor progression in a variety of cancers. However, its possible effects and related signaling pathway in the development of laryngeal cancer are not clear...

Surgically discarded adipose tissue is not only an abundant source of multipotent adipose-derived stem/stromal cells (ASCs) but can also be decellularized to obtain a biomimetic microenvironment for tissue engineering applications. The decellularization methods involve processing excised fat through a series of chemical, mechanical, and enzymatic treatment stages designed to extract cells, cellular components, and lipid from the tissues. This process yields a complex 3D bioscaffold enriched in collagens that mimics the biochemical and biomechanical properties of the native extracellular matrix (ECM)...

Cerebrovascular smooth muscle cell proliferation and migration contribute to hyperplasia in case of cerebrovascular remodeling and stroke. In the present study, we investigated the effects of acetylshikonin, the main ingredient of a Chinese traditional medicine Zicao, on human brain vascular smooth muscle cell (HBVSMCs) proliferation and migration induced by angiotensin II (AngII), and the underlying mechanisms. We found that acetylshikonin treatment significantly inhibited AngII-induced HBVSMCs proliferation and cell cycle transition from G1 to S phase...

In vivo, multidomain peptide (MDP) hydrogels undergo rapid cell infiltration and elicit a mild inflammatory response which promotes angiogenesis. Over time, the nanofibers are degraded and a natural collagen-based extracellular matrix is produced remodeling the artificial material into natural tissue. These properties make MDPs particularly well suited for applications in regeneration. In this work, we test the regenerative potential of MDP hydrogels in a diabetic wound healing model. When applied to full-thickness dermal wounds in genetically diabetic mice, the MDP hydrogel resulted in significantly accelerated wound healing compared to a clinically used hydrogel, as well as a control buffer...

Currently, there are more opportunities to treat patients complicated with critical limb ischemia (CLI), which is a very dismal medical condition associated with a high risk of major amputation, disability and death. Because CLI is usually caused by multi-level occlusive atherosclerotic disease, the condition of CLI induced by aorto-iliac occlusive disease (AIOD) alone is thought to be a rare pathological entity. We encountered a patient with severe CLI caused by solitary AIOD. Three vascular access routes were established and stiff guidewires retrogradely passed the occluded arteries on both sides...

REVIEW
Tanapat Palaga, Wipawee Wongchana, Patipark Kueanjinda
Macrophages play both tumor-suppressing and tumor-promoting roles depending on the microenvironment. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) are often associated with poor prognosis in most, but not all cancer. Understanding how macrophages become TAMs and how TAMs interact with tumor cells and shape the outcome of cancer is one of the key areas of interest in cancer therapy research. Notch signaling is involved in macrophage activation and its effector functions. Notch signaling has been indicated to play roles in the regulation of macrophage activation in pro-inflammatory and wound-healing processes...
