A biopsy processing system designed to prevent lodging and possible loss of the tissue specimen for analysis. The system includes a biopsy container having a longitudinal wall forming an internal compartment, a biopsy bag attached to an inner surface of the container, a cassette for receiving the biopsy bag, and an automated system for removing the biopsy bag from the biopsy container and placing the biopsy bag in the cassette.
The present disclosure provides genetically modified animals and cells comprising a polynucleotide encoding human profilin1. Also provided are methods of assessing the effects of agents in genetically modified animals and cells comprising a polynucleotide encoding human profilin1.
The present invention provides methods and combinations for reducing the infarct volume in a tissue of a subject undergoing ischemia or at risk of developing ischemia.
The present invention encompasses methods of identifying proteins and protein modifications of proteins specifically associated with a chromatin.
Methods for the synthesis of tocoflexols of Formula (I) and (II) and a number of related tocol analogs are provided herein. The methods are economical and amenable to large scale production and can be performed using either pure of partially purified tocotrienols as the starting material.
A biopsy pipette with a filter attached in an internal compartment of a pipette designed to prevent lodging and possible loss of the tissue specimen for analysis. A biopsy test tube may be provided with a biopsy bag attached in the internal compartment of the test tube. Further, a biopsy cassette may be provided with an opening configured to receive a pipette. An automated and non-automated system and method of using the biopsy pipette, biopsy test tube, and biopsy cassette in the processing of biopsy specimen is also disclosed.
The invention generally relates to hapten compounds comprising either (+)methamphetamine or (+)amphetamine conjugated to a linker. Generally speaking, hapten compounds of the invention may be used to elicit an immune response to one or more of (+)methamphetamine, (+)amphetamine, or (+)MDMA.
The present invention describes the cloning and molecular and cellular characterization of a novel protein with homology to the IL-17 receptor. The gene was cloned by virtue of its proximity to a common site of retroviral integration in a murine acute myeloid leukemia. The gene described herein possibly codes for a novel interleukin receptor that binds an as yet unidentified cytokine ligand, and may be useful in cancer diagnostics and therapies that rely on immune system modulation.
P-Selectin on platelets and endothelium binds cell surface chondroitin sulfate (CS) proteoglycans, which are abundantly and stably expressed on the surface many cancer cells. Binding of the cancer cells through the CS moieties may be blocked to inhibit the interaction of cancer cells with platelets and endothelium. The present inventors disclose compositions and methods for the inhibition of cancer metastasis.
Pharmaceutical compositions comprising anti-teratogenic agents are disclosed. Additionally, pharmaceutical compositions comprising anti-neoplastic agents and anti-teratogenic agents are disclosed. Methods of assessing the teratogenicity of a compound are disclosed. The present invention further comprises applications of the aforementioned compositions and methods.
