Human platelet and fluorochemical interaction

Journal of Biomedical Materials Research
J J KmetzoH W Wallace


Since the fluorochemicals have become of interest for the development of artificial red blood cells, oxygenators, liquid breathing, and as a radiographic contrast medium, their interaction with biological substances is of importance. Fresh human platelets were placed in contact with four different fluorochemicals for a period of 50 min. The platelet function as measured by aggregation was determined before and after fluorochemical contact. Appropriate controls were also evaluated. No significant differences were found between the aggregation of platelets contacted with fluorochemicals and the aggregation of platelets from the same donor unexposed to fluorochemicals.

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.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.
