How Primary Cells Are Important

ADME is the abbreviation for Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion. These ADME studies are designed to investigate the metabolism and processing of a chemical compound by a living organism. When toxicology tests are a part of this process, the acronym becomes ADMET with the last T for ‘Toxicology’. Primary cells are directly isolated from human […]

Mouse Models for Inflammatory Bowel Disease - Kosheeka

Mouse models for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) are of various types and subtypes as the different models have different responses of histology, disease location, therapeutic response, and potential applications.  Chemically Induced Mouse Models Chemically induced mouse models are the most widely used inflammatory bowel disease study moels. These mouse models are chemically induced by dextran sulfate […]

Holotomography

At the time of cell culture experiments, imaging stem cells in real-time can essentially provide crucial information on cell physiology but previously, there was no such technology without the risks of phototoxicity or the use of labeling dye agents. With holotomography technology, it is possible to perform 3D live-cell imaging of the stem cells under […]

3D Bioprinting in Biomedical - Kosheeka

3D printing was first developed in 1984 and slowly started making its way into several domains of technology. In recent times, 3D printing advancements have paved the way for using this technology in a cost-effective and efficient manner. Since the last few years, biomedical science companies have also started figuring out how to utilize this […]

viral transport medium

With an increasing need for extensive research on SARS-CoV2 biology, the diagnosis of COVID-19 infections by cell culture relies heavily on the careful and aseptic collection of specimens. This is where specialized Viral Transport Medium (VTM) is required to protect the virus from environmental damage and maintain its activity with adequate sustainable transport system. Over […]

Breathing Easy With Mesenchymal Stem Cells

H7N9 infection is caused by the family of influenza A viruses (IAVs); with 6 seasonal epidemics so far in mainland China since 2016 showing its developing virulence. The symptoms of H7N9 infection are fever, cough, shortness of breath, and sputum that develop into severe pneumonia and moderate-to-severe acute respiratory distress syndrome or ARDS. Another disease […]

Mesenchymal Stem Cells For Autoimmune Diseases - Kosheeka

The immunomodulatory properties of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) coupled with their isolation from several sources ranging from bone marrow to adipose tissue to umbilical cord to placenta to dental pulp, and even menstrual fluid makes them attractive options for use in cell-based therapy. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, autoimmune diseases affect […]

Chronic Wounds treating with MSCs

Close to 6.5 million patients in the US suffer from chronic wounds: with a whopping cost of US$25 billion spent per year on treating chronic wounds. These numbers are on the rise given the increase in the aging population and incidences in obesity and diabetes (Sen et al, 2009). In the case of basic wound […]

The Brilliance Of Stem Cells From The Umbilical Cord

Mesenchymal Stem Cells have attracted great attention in terms of their use for regenerative medicine. They have been isolated from many tissues such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, fetal blood and liver, synovial membranes, skin, cord blood, amniotic fluid, peripheral blood and the umbilical cord. Research has shown that the marker phenotype, immune features and […]

Mesenchymal Stem Cells For Diabetes

According to a 2019-published study in Diabetes Research And Clinical Practice, apart from the impact diabetes has on health, it is the top 10 causes of death in adults! There are three main types of diabetes: type 1 diabetes (T1D), type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D), and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM). The scientists reported that across […]
