- An in vitro model of hepatic steatosis using lipid loaded induced pluripotent stem cell derived hepatocyte like cells July 22, 2020Hepatic steatosis is a metabolic disease, characterized by selective and progressive accumulation of lipids in liver, leading to progressive non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), and cirrhosis. The existing in vitro models of hepatic steatosis to elucidate the molecular mechanisms behind the onset of hepatic steatosis and to profile small molecule modulators uses […]
- A 2D and 3D melanogenesis model with human primary cells induced by tyrosine July 6, 2020Research on melanogenesis, its regulation in health and disease, and the discovery of new molecules with pigmenting and depigmenting activities use different models. Here we standardize a protocol based on previous ones using primary human melanocytes and keratinocytes in co-cultures, in which melanogenesis was induced under mild conditions by the addition of tyrosine plus ammonium […]
- Classification of the urinary metabolome using machine learning and potential applications to diagnosing interstitial cystitis June 2, 2020With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) in biostatistical analysis and modeling, machine learning can potentially be applied into developing diagnostic models for interstitial cystitis (IC). In the current clinical setting, urologists are dependent on cystoscopy and questionnaire-based decisions to diagnose IC. This is a result of a lack of objective diagnostic molecular biomarkers. The […]
- Repeat transurethral resection is still an essential tool in treating non-muscle invasive bladder cancer: the Western Australian experience April 2, 2020Objectives: To determine the rate of residual disease and under-staging after primary transurethral resection (TUR) of bladder tumors (TURBT) in tertiary hospitals in Western Australia.Methods: A retrospective study was performed evaluating all patients with TaHG (stage Ta, high-grade), T1LG (stage T1, low-grade) or T1HG (stage T1, high-grade) bladder cancer on primary TURBT conducted between January […]
