In this study orchiopexy was performed in 30 Sprague-Dawley rats in order to compare traumatic effects of surgical and autologous fascial suture materials on testicular histology. Abscess formation was observed in 72.7% of the chromic, in 36.3% of the nylon, and in 18.1% of the vicryl fixed groups. There were no abscess formations in the dartos and autologous fascial fixed group. Examination of the testes revealed complete absence of spermatogenesis in the chromic fixed group. Spermatogenesis was normal, 72% in the vicryl, 18.1% in the nylon, 90.9% in the dartos and autologous fascial suture fixed groups. Antisperm antibody was not observed in any rat sera. We consider that it is preferred to use dartos pouch fixation. If necessary, it is advisable to use autologous fascial suture materials.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
