12th Edition of International Conference on Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine. Frankfurt, Germany. May 10-11, 2018

EUROSCICON LLC welcomes you to attend the 12th   Edition of International Conference on Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine during May 10-11, 2018 at Frankfurt, Germany. We cordially invite all the participants who are interested in sharing their knowledge

A novel method of edema fluid drainage in obstructive lymphedema of limbs

Human tissues contain tissue fluid. This fluid originates from blood plasma. Plasma water, proteins and nutrients are filtered to tissues from blood capillaries and spread around the cells. Cells incorporate from tissue fluid what is important for their

When the physician may identify microscopic tissue architecture in real time

Diagnosis of disease is the fundamental goal of medicine as treatment  and prognosis rely on it. The diagnostic process ends eventually with tissue sampling (biopsy) for microscopic evaluation. The paradigm “tissue is the issue” reflects the modern trend

Electric fields drive macrophage healing functions

When the skin is cut, or otherwise injured, a spontaneous electrical current is created immediately at the wound and this promotes healing. Several studies have demonstrated how naturally generated electrical fields cause movement of skin epithelial cells,

Towards organs on demand: a new platform for successful kidney organogenesis

The ultimate treatment for end-stage renal disease is orthotopic transplantation. However, the demand for kidney transplantation far exceeds the number of available donor organs. While more than 100,000 Americans need a kidney, only 17,000 people receive a

A promising novel drug for breast cancer

The reason cancer is so difficult to treat is that cancer cells are our own cells running wild, which means that they generally do not make any protein or other molecule that normal cells don’t make.  This

Do plants have brains?

Many organisms have circadian clocks. These internal clocks play essential roles for predicting day-length or seasons, and they regulate behavior and hormonal secretion in animals, and also regulating flowering time and cell elongation in plants. In animals,

Cardiovascular disease burden in Hodgkin lymphoma survivors

In developed countries, lymphomas are the third most frequent tumors among the pediatric cancers following leukemias and central nervous system tumors. With substantial increase in survivors of Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), late complications of treatment have become extremely

A brain haemorrhage during anticoagulant therapy: what therapy next?

We read with interest the articles by Ntaios and by Ricci et al. concerning pros and cons of restarting oral anticoagulants (drugs that work to prevent the coagulation (clotting) of blood) after intracerebral hemorrhage. While we appreciate

Photometric patch electrode captures optical and electrical signals simultaneously in deep brain tissues

When neurons work they signal each other using action potentials, which is a rapid change of membrane potential and underlies the brain function. In most neurons action potentials accompany changes of intracellular concentration of calcium ions. Calcium

Is a tissue-engineering approach effective for the treatment of osteoporotic bone defects?

Osteoporosis (OP) is a disease that affects the formation, maintenance, and density of bone. OP is also associated with an increased risk of bone fracture. For those people/patients facing a traumatic injury or tumor removal in the

Connective tissue that changes stiffness under nervous control

When you keep raising your hand, your muscles will soon get tired. What if your skin stiffens in the raised position?You can let your muscles relax and still your hand maintains the raised posture. This is what

Fragments of erythrocyte membranes are not only able to stop the bleeding, but also are able to prevent the spread of thrombosis

Red blood cells (RBCs), also called erythrocytes, are the most common type of blood cell and principal means of delivering oxygen to body tissues. Human erythrocytes develop from stem cells into mature erythrocytes in about 7 days. When matured, in a healthy individual these

Emphysematous eosinophilic lymphangitis in the bovine rumen

Inflammation of lymphatic vessels (lymphangitis) is usually caused by a variety of bacterial or parasitic infections. Disorders characterized by emphysematous dilation of lymphatic vessels (lymphangiectasis) associated with inflammatory process are uncommon. A typical example of such rare

Bioresorbable Mg implants modified by nanostructured merwinite/PEO coating for hard tissue repairs

Metallic biomaterials for example stainless steel, titanium, and cobalt – based alloys are using as permanent bone implant materials for orthopedic applications. However, they have some problems : 1 ) the difference between the mechanical properties of

Small-molecule RETRA is effective against a fatal childhood cancer

The bone tumor Ewing’s sarcoma is one of the most aggressive cancers in childhood and adolescence. Before the era of chemotherapy, more than 90% of Ewing’s sarcoma patients succumbed to their disease. With the introduction of intensive
