A neural network model for early diagnosis of acute GVHD based on gene expression data

M. Fiasche; M. Cuzzola; M. Cacciola; G. Megali; R. Fedele; P. Iacopino; F. C. Morabito 2009 IEEE International Workshop on Genomic Signal Processing and Statistics, 2009

Acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) is the major complication after allogeneic haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) in which functional immune cells of donor recognize the recipient as ldquoforeignrdquo and mount an immunologic attack. In this paper we analyzed gene-expression profiles of 47 genes associated with alloreactivity in 59 patients submitted to HSCT. We have applied a dimension reduction technique to found ...

Two operative concepts for the post-genomic era: the "memoire vive" of the cell and a molecular algebra

S. Bentolila Computational Systems Bioinformatics. CSB2003. Proceedings of the 2003 IEEE Bioinformatics Conference. CSB2003, 2003

The first successes in cloning experiments and stem cell "reprogramming" have already demonstrated the primordial role of cellular working-space memory and regulatory mechanisms, which use the knowledge stored in the DNA database in read mode. We present an analogy between living systems and informatics systems by considering: 1) the cell cytoplasm as a memory device accessible as read/write; 2) the ...

  • Characterization of the Adhesive Interactions Between Cells and Biomaterials

    The interactions between cells and their environment are mediated by adhesion receptors located on the cell surface. This chapter focuses on the adhesion receptors responsible for the interactions that occur within native tissue, current biomaterial fabrication methods that attempt to mimic these interactions for tissue engineering applications, and measurement techniques that investigate cell-substrate and cell-cell adhesion strength.

  • Microfluidic Formation of Cell-Laden Hydrogel Modules for Tissue Engineering

    This chapter introduces the reproducible fabrication methods of cell-laden hydrogel modules with a controllable design and the characteristics of the modules. It provides an overview of handling techniques of the modules in microfluidic devices. The chapter talks about applications of the modules for transplantation and bottom-up tissue engineering. Combined with cell assay microfluidic systems and cell-laden hydrogel modules, microtissues with extracellular matrices (ECMs) are useful for analyses of cell functions and cell-cell interactions because microtissues can easily be handled, arrayed, and retrieved in microfluidic systems. Furthermore, the cell-laden hydrogel modules can be used as building units for reconstructing 3D cell structures. Therefore, the cell-laden hydrogel modules produced by microfluidic devices have a great potential to create miniaturized tissues for human implantation and for treatment of diseases.

  • IEEE Press Series in Biomedical Engineering

  • No title

    Increasingly, biomedical scientists and engineers are involved in projects, design, or research and development that involve humans or animals. The book presents general concepts on professionalism and the regulation of the profession of engineering, including a discussion on what is ethics and moral conduct, ethical theories and the codes of ethics that are most relevant for engineers. An ethical decision-making process is suggested. Other issues such as conflicts of interest, plagiarism, intellectual property, confidentiality, privacy, fraud, and corruption are presented. General guidelines, the process for obtaining ethics approval from Ethics Review Boards, and the importance of obtaining informed consent from volunteers recruited for studies are presented. A discussion on research with animals is included. Ethical dilemmas focus on reproductive technologies, stem cells, cloning, genetic testing, and designer babies. The book includes a discussion on ethics and the technologies of body enhancement and of regeneration. The importance of assessing the impact of technology on people, society, and on our planet is stressed. Particular attention is given to nanotechnologies, the environment, and issues that pertain to developing countries. Ideas on gender, culture, and ethics focus on how research and access to medical services have, at times, been discriminatory towards women. The cultural aspects focus on organ transplantation in Japan, and a case study of an Aboriginal child in Canada; both examples show the impact that culture can have on how care is provided or accepted. The final section of the book discusses data collection and analysis and offers a guideline for honest reporting of results, avoiding fraud, or unethical approaches. The appendix presents a few case studies where fraud and/or unethical research have occurred.

  • Micro- and Nanospheres for Tissue Engineering

    The emergence of regenerative medicine has resulted in a novel interdisciplinary field that focuses on repair, replacement, and regeneration of diseased or damaged tissues or organs. As one of the most important strategies in regenerative medicine, the field of tissue engineering (which typically combines biodegradable scaffolds, (stem) cells, and bioactive signals such as growth factors) has created new possibilities to produce implantable tissues ex vivo. This chapter focuses on the most recent advances in research on micro- and nanospheres aiming at improvement of the functionality and clinical efficacy of traditional scaffolds for soft and hard tissue engineering. Depending on their origin, polymeric micro- and nanospheres can be classified as either natural or synthetic polymers, both of which have their specific pros and cons.

  • Integrating Top-Down and Bottom-Up Scaffolding Tissue Engineering Approach for Bone Regeneration

    Tissue engineering (TE) as an interdisciplinary field of research aims at restoring, maintaining, or improving tissue function through applying the principles of biology, medicine, and engineering science. Cells, scaffolds, and growth-stimulating bioactive factors are generally referred to as the three key components of engineered tissues in TE. A common strategy in TE is combining cells, biodegradable scaffolds, and bioactive factors to replicate natural processes of tissue regeneration and development. The interactions among these components are imperative to achieve biologically functional engineered tissue. This chapter reviews the bone TE strategies involved in preparation of scaffolds and briefly discusses the drawbacks and advantages of these strategies. The major challenge of integration of bottom-up techniques with more traditional top-down approaches is to create more complex tissues than are currently achievable using either approach alone by optimizing the advantages of each technique.

  • Application of Stem Cells in Ischemic Heart Disease

    It is evident that the limited capacity of regeneration and proliferation of human cardiomyocytes can prevent neither the scar formation that occurs after myocardial infarction (MI) nor the loss of heart function occurring in patients with cardiomyopathy and heart failure. Replacement and regeneration of functional cardiac muscle is an important goal that could be achieved either by stimulation of autologous resident cardiomyocytes or by the transplantation of allogenic cells. Transplanted satellite stem cells (myoblasts) from skeletal muscle can successfully home and engraft within a damaged myocardium, preventing progressive ventricular dilatation and improving cardiac function. It is important to point out that bone marrow contains several stem cell populations with overlapping phenotypes, including hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), endothelial stem/precursor cells (EPCs), mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), and multipotent adult progenitor cells (MAPss). This chapter provides a brief comparison of the advantages and limitations of the cell types presently used in cardiac transplantation.

  • Complex organization in multicellularity as a necessity in evolution

    By introducing a dynamical system model of a multicellular system, it is shown that an organism with a variety of differentiated cell types and a complex pattern emerges through cell-cell interactions even without postulating any elaborate control mechanism. Such organism is found to maintain a larger growth speed as an ensemble by achieving a cooperative use of resources, than simple homogeneous cells which behave 'selfishly'. This suggests that the emergence of multicellular organisms with complex organization is a necessity in evolution. According to our theoretical model, there appear multipotent stem cells initially, which exhibit stochastic differentiation to other cell types. With the development and differentiation, both the chemical diversity and complexity of intra-cellular dynamics are decreased, as a general consequence of our system. Robustness of the developmental process is also confirmed
