PREPARATION OF BIOLOGICAL MATERIAL FOR RADIOAUTOGRAPHIC STUDIES OF INTERMEDIARY METABOLISM

Description: The intermediary metabolism of many kinds of biological material may be studied by supplying the tissue with radioactive substrates and analyzing the reaction products by paper chromatography and radioautography. The preparation of the tissue in a form suitable for such study frequently presents difficulty. Several experimental approaches to this problem are discussed which have been applied successfully to the metabolism of tissues from widely differing organisms. (auth)

Biospecimen Reporting for Improved Study Quality

Description: Human biospecimens are subjected to collection, processing, and storage that can significantly alter their molecular composition and consistency. These biospecimen preanalytical factors, in turn, influence experimental outcomes and the ability to reproduce scientific results. Currently, the extent and type of information specific to the biospecimen preanalytical conditions reported in scientific publications and regulatory submissions varies widely. To improve the quality of research that uses human tissues, it is crucial that information on the handling of biospecimens be reported in a thorough, accurate, and standardized manner. The Biospecimen Reporting for Improved Study Quality (BRISQ) recommendations outlined herein are intended to apply to any study in which human biospecimens are used. The purpose of reporting these details is to supply others, from researchers to regulators, with more consistent and standardized information to better evaluate, interpret, compare, and reproduce the experimental results. The BRISQ guidelines are proposed as an important and timely resource tool to strengthen communication and publications on biospecimen-related research and to help reassure patient contributors and the advocacy community that their contributions are valued and respected.

Porous ceramic scaffolds with complex architectures

Description: This work compares two novel techniques for the fabrication of ceramic scaffolds for bone tissue engineering with complex porosity: robocasting and freeze casting. Both techniques are based on the preparation of concentrated ceramic suspensions with suitable properties for the process. In robocasting, the computer-guided deposition of the suspensions is used to build porous materials with designed three dimensional (3-D) geometries and microstructures. Freeze casting uses ice crystals as a template to form porous lamellar ceramic materials. Preliminary results on the compressive strengths of the materials are also reported.
