    ABSTRACT: Background: Anti-Gal is a major antibody induced in non-human primates (NHPs) after xenotransplantation. To understand the mechanism of graft rejection, we investigated the association between anti-Gal responses and graft failure in NHP recipients of porcine islet transplantation (PITx). Methods: Intraportal PITx was performed in 35 diabetic NHPs, and graft function was monitored. Early graft failure (EGF) was defined as loss of graft function within a month after PITx. Seven, 19, nine NHPs received immunosuppression (IS) without CD40 pathway blockade (Group I), with anti-CD154 (Group II), and with anti-CD40 (Group III), respectively. The anti-Gal levels on day 0 and day 7 of PITx were measured by ELISA. Results: The frequency of EGF was significantly lower in Group II (26.3%) than in Group I (100%, P=0.0012) and Group III (77.8%, P=0.0166). While levels of anti-Gal IgG in Group I and anti-Gal IgM in Group III increased on day 7 compared with day 0 (P=0.0156 and 0.0273), there was no increase in either on day 7 in Group II. The ratio of anti-Gal IgM or IgG level on day 7 to that on day 0 (Ratio7/0) was significantly higher in recipients with EGF than without EGF (P=0.0009 and 0.0027). ROC curve analysis of anti-Gal IgM Ratio7/0 revealed an area under the curve of 0.789 (P=0.0003). Conclusions: IS with anti-CD154 suppressed anti-Gal responses and prevented EGF in PITx. Anti-Gal IgM Ratio7/0, being associated with EGF, is a predictive marker for EGF.

    ABSTRACT: Although Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motif-containing disintegrins are associated with integrin inhibition and the activation of various biological processes, little is known about the role of RGD motif-containing disintegrin in vascular development and remodeling. We therefore investigated the role of RGD-containing disintegrin in vascular remodeling in oxygen-induced retinopathy (OIR) mouse model. EGT022, an RGD-containing disintegrin originated from human a disintegrin and metalloproteinase 15 (ADAM15), was used to investigate the role of the disintegrin in vascular development in OIR mouse model. To analyze the functional effects of EGT022 on retinal vascular development, the immunohistochemistry on mouse retinas after fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) perfusion was conducted and the vessel integrity was examined using modified Mile's permeability assay. EGT022 was able to reduce overall retinopathy scores by 75%, indicating its efficacy in retinal microvessel maturation stimulation. Pericyte coverage was greatly stimulated by EGT022 treatment in OIR mouse model. EGT022 was also effective to significantly improve blood vessel integrity. RGD-containing disintegrin EGT022 stimulated vascular maturation in OIR mouse model. Experimental results suggest that EGT022 is useful for treatments to improve ischemia in nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy (NPDR), the early stage of diabetic retinopathy.

    ABSTRACT: The discovery of the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) effect provided a revolutionary solution to the issue of low sensitivity in Raman spectroscopy. For more widespread application of SERS analysis, however, practical fabrication of well-defined ultrasmall nanostructures having large SERS signal enhancement capability and large-area signal uniformity is still a major challenge. Here, we report that rings-in-mesh Au nanostructures, which can be obtained by the consecutive self-assembly of polystyrene nanospheres and block copolymers (BCPs) with far different length scales, provide multiple advantages for SERS analysis in terms of signal amplification and measurement reproducibility. Significant signal enhancement is achieved by the hierarchical geometry composed of a submicrometer nanomesh and sub-10-nm nanogaps, which can be obtained from the self-assembly phenomena of polystyrene nanospheres and siloxane-based BCPs, respectively. Moreover, the two-dimensionally isotropic characteristics of the concentric nanoring structures eliminate the angular dependence of the SERS signal intensity and provide excellent reproducibility of measurement over a large area.

    ABSTRACT: In situ nanolithography is realized based on warm spin-casting of block copolymer solutions. This advancement is based on Si-containing block copolymers with appropriate thermodynamic driving force for spontaneous phase-separation combined with the thermal assistance provided by slight temperature elevations during the spin-casting. Sub-10 nm half-pitch nanoscale patterns are produced within 30 s without a separate annealing process. © 2015 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.

    ABSTRACT: Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms are rare. Sinus of Valsalva aneurysms are frequently associated with ventricular septal defect (VSD) and aortic regurgitation. They often remain asymptomatic until abruptly presenting with acute chest pain and heart failure secondary to rupture. Here, we describe a case of 20-year-old man who presented with chest pain with a history of VSD. Initial work-up concluded that the patient had VSD associated membranous septal aneurysm. Four years later, the patient presented with symptoms of heart failure. Work-up showed that the ruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysm was the cause of symptoms. Due to its close proximity to the aortic annulus, sinus of Valsalva aneurysm should be differentiated from membranous septal aneurysm.

    ABSTRACT: Phase change memory (PCM) is one of the most promising candidates for next-generation non-volatile memory devices due to its high speed, excellent reliability, and outstanding scalability. However, the high switching current of PCM devices has been a critical hurdle to realize low-power operation. Although one solution is to reduce the switching volume of the memory, the resolution limit of photolithography hinders further miniaturization of device dimensions. In this study, we employed unconventional self-assembly geometries obtained from blends of block copolymers (BCPs) to form ring-shaped hollow PCM nanostructures with an ultra-small contact area between a phase-change material (Ge2Sb2Te5) and a heater (TiN) electrode. The high-density (approximately 0.1 terabits per square inch) PCM nanoring arrays showed extremely small switching current of 2 − 3 µA. Furthermore, the relatively small reset current of the ring-shaped PCM compared to the pillar-shaped devices is attributed to smaller switching volume, which is well supported by electro-thermal simulation results. This approach may also be extended to other non-volatile memory device appli-cations such as resistive switching memory and magnetic storage devices, where the control of nanoscale geometry can significantly affect device performances.

    ABSTRACT: Chronic total occlusions (CTOs) are common in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). This study aimed to examine the feasibility and reliability of a CTO induced by a thin biodegradable polymer (polyglycolic acid) coated copper stent in a porcine femoral artery. Novel thin biodegradable polymer coated copper stents (9 mm long) were crimped on an angioplasty balloon (4.5 mm diameter × 12 mm length) and inserted into the femoral artery. Histopathologic analysis was performed 35 days after stenting. In five of six stented femoral arteries, severe in-stent restenosis and total occlusion with collateral circulation were observed without adverse effects such as acute stent thrombosis, leg necrosis, or death at 5 weeks. Fibrous tissue deposition, small vascular channels, calcification, and inflammatory cells were observed in hematoxylin-eosin, Carstair's, and von Kossa tissue stains; these characteristics were similar to pathological findings associated with CTOs in humans. The neointima volume measured by micro-computed tomography was 93.9 ± 4.04 % in the stented femoral arteries. CTOs were reliably induced by novel thin biodegradable polymer coated copper stents in porcine femoral arteries. Successful induction of CTOs may provide a practical understanding of their formation and application of an interventional device for CTO treatment.

    ABSTRACT: Flexible memory is the fundamental component for data processing, storage, and radio frequency communication in flexible electronic systems. Among several emerging memory technologies, phase-change random-access memory (PRAM) is one of the strongest candidate for next-generation nonvolatile memories due to its remarkable merits of large cycling endurance, high speed, and excellent scalability. Although there are a few approaches for flexible phase-change memory (PCM), high reset current is the biggest obstacle for the practical operation of flexible PCM devices. In this paper, we report a flexible PCM realized by incorporating nanoinsulators derived from a Si-containing block copolymer (BCP) to significantly lower the operating current of the flexible memory formed on plastic substrate. The reduction of thermal stress by BCP nanostructures enables the reliable operation of flexible PCM devices integrated with ultrathin flexible diodes during more than 100 switching cycles and 1000 bending cycles.

    ABSTRACT: The multiple measurement vector problem (MMV) is a generalization of the compressed sensing problem that addresses the recovery of a set of jointly sparse signal vectors. One of the important contributions of this paper is to reveal that the seemingly least related state-of-art MMV joint sparse recovery algorithms - M-SBL (multiple sparse Bayesian learning) and subspace-based hybrid greedy algorithms - have a very important link. More specifically, we show that replacing the $\log\det(\cdot)$ term in M-SBL by a rank proxy that exploits the spark reduction property discovered in subspace-based joint sparse recovery algorithms, provides significant improvements. In particular, if we use the Schatten-$p$ quasi-norm as the corresponding rank proxy, the global minimiser of the proposed algorithm becomes identical to the true solution as $p \rightarrow 0$. Furthermore, under the same regularity conditions, we show that the convergence to a local minimiser is guaranteed using an alternating minimization algorithm that has closed form expressions for each of the minimization steps, which are convex. Numerical simulations under a variety of scenarios in terms of SNR, and condition number of the signal amplitude matrix demonstrate that the proposed algorithm consistently outperforms M-SBL and other state-of-the art algorithms.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we developed a novel molecularly imprinted conducting polymer (MICP) system consisting of porous poly(pyrrole-co-pyrrole-3-carboxylic acid) copolymer matrices for the recognition of theophylline (THEO), a drug molecule. Various porous MICP (p-MICP) films were made using colloidal lithography and examined via gravimetric technique [e.g. gold quartz crystal microbalances (QCMs)]. They showed faster sensing response than a planar MICP film due to the increased THEO binding sites obtained from porous structures. Thus, this lithographical approach to MICP sensors can enable the rebind of a specific template to be increased to achieve improved sensor capacity.

    ABSTRACT: Polysaccharide, despite its effect, is hard to apply for coating on stent surface because its own properties such as insoluble in water, fragmentation and deactivation easily. The aim of this study was to optimize the coating conditions for fucoidan on a bare metal stent (BMS), and to evaluate the inhibitory effect of a fucoidan-coated stent on in-stent restenosis (ISR). Three different coating approaches were attempted (designated as multi-layer coating, single-layer coating, and dual coating). Unlike other approaches, it was hard to notice the irregular, blotched or the cracks area in the polymer on the BMS surface in dual coating group. And the release of fucoidan was continued to 24 h and inhibits smooth muscle cell proliferation, when compared to the control, with approximately 42.7% at 3 days and 51.3% at 7 days of culture. In animal study using rabbit iliac artery, histopathological restenosis area were smaller in fucoidan-coated group compared to BMS group (38.6%, p = 0.062 in 148. 9 μg/stent, and 40.6%, p = 0.048 in 250 μg/stent of fucoidan coating group at 4 weeks of post-implantation) and a lower degree of strut coverage were shown in the fucoidan-coated stent group, as compared to the BMS group. These results suggest that dual coating is an appropriate method for fucoidan coating on BMS, and its inhibitory effect can be utilized for the suppression of ISR.

    ABSTRACT: The presence of a single coronary artery is a rare congenital anomaly; such patients often present with severe myocardial ischemia. We experienced the case of a 13-year-old girl with the right coronary artery originating from the left circumflex artery. She visited our Emergency Department owing to severe chest pain; her cardiac enzyme levels were elevated, but her initial electrocardiogram (ECG) was normal. Echocardiography showed normal anatomy and normal regional wall motion. When she presented with recurrent chest pain on admission, the ECG showed significant ST-segment elevation in the left precordial leads and inferior leads with ST-segment depression in aVR lead, suggesting myocardial ischemia, and her cardiac enzyme levels were also elevated. We performed coronary angiography that showed a single right coronary artery originating from the left circumflex artery without stenosis. We confirmed the presence of a single coronary artery using coronary computed tomography. In addition, the treadmill test that was performed showed normal results. She was discharged from the hospital without any medications but with a recommendation of a regular follow-up.

    ABSTRACT: Background To understand humoral responses elicited after xenotransplantation, we compared the induction of anti-non-Gal antibodies vs. anti-Gal antibodies in non-human primates (NHPs) after intraportal porcine islet transplantation (PITX).Methods Anti-Gal and anti-non-Gal IgGs were analyzed in serial plasma samples of NHP recipients after PITX by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) using synthetic Gal and by flow cytometry using α-1,3-galactosyltransferase gene knockout (GTKO) porcine endothelial cells, respectively. Anti-non-Gal IgG was detected in some recipients after PITX. The specificity of anti-non-Gal IgG was investigated by two-dimensional electrophoresis of the protein extract from GTKO porcine endothelial cells, Western blot analysis of recipient pre- and post-PITX plasma, and MALDI-TOF/TOF mass spectrometry, revealing albumin, a non-glycosylated protein in the serum supplement of the islets solution, as a putative antigen for anti-non-Gal IgG. The binding of IgG antibodies to human albumin (HA), bovine albumin (BA), porcine albumin (PA), and Gal was compared by ELISA in pre- and post-PITX plasma samples of 30 NHP recipients subjected to intraportal PITX, which were grouped according to the use of CD40-CD154 blockade and sirolimus.ResultsOne of the immunoblot-matched spots was identified as BA by mass spectrometry. By ELISA, the plasma used in the immunoblot analysis revealed strong IgG binding to BA and PA, but not to HA. Anti-PA, anti-BA, and anti-Gal antibodies in NHP recipients 1 month after PITX were detected in 5 (100%), 3 (60%), and 5 (100%), respectively, of the 5 recipients receiving various immunosuppression (IS) without CD40-CD154 blockade (group I) and in 0 (0%), 0 (0%), and 4 (16%), respectively, of the 25 recipients receiving IS with CD40-CD154 blockade and sirolimus (group II). This finding revealed significant differences between the groups (P < 0.0001, P = 0.0011 and P = 0.0013, respectively). Interestingly, among 15 recipients achieving graft survival longer than 1 month in group II, anti-PA IgG was detected in only 1 recipient (6.7%) 180 days after PITX. However, an increase in anti-Gal IgG was detected in 7 recipients (46.7%) despite maintenance IS with anti-CD154 and sirolimus. This result indicates that anti-Gal IgG is more frequently induced than anti-PA IgG (P = 0.0352). Moreover, induction IS with anti-CD154 and sirolimus suppressed anti-Gal IgG, but not anti-PA and anti-BA IgG, responses in sensitized recipients given a repeat transplantation.Conclusions In NHP recipients of PITX, anti-PA and anti-BA IgG antibodies are elicited by porcine serum included as a supplement in porcine islet preparation. IS including CD40-CD154 blockade and sirolimus suppresses these antibody responses in naïve recipients, but not in sensitized recipients. The elicitation of anti-xenogenic albumin antibodies, a humoral response to a model protein antigen, is distinct from that of anti-Gal antibodies, a response to carbohydrate antigen.

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this study was to evaluate the bone regeneration of hydroxyapatite (HA)/alumina bilayered scaffold with a 3 mm passage-like medullary canal in a beagle tibia model. A porous HA/alumina scaffold was fabricated using a polymeric template-coating technique. HA/alumina scaffold dimensions were 10 mm in outer diameter, 20 mm in length, and with either a 3 mm passage or no passage. A 20 mm segmental defect was induced using an oscillating saw through the diaphysis of the beagle tibia. The defects of six beagles were filled with HA/alumina bilayered scaffolds with a 3 mm passage or without. The segmental defect was fixated using one bone plate and six screws. Bone regeneration within the HA/alumina scaffolds was observed at eight weeks after implantation. The evaluation of bone regeneration within the scaffolds after implantation in a beagle tibia was performed using radiography, computerized tomography (CT), micro-CT, and fluorescence microscopy. New bone successfully formed in the tibia defects treated with 3 mm passage HA/alumina scaffolds compared to without-passage HA/alumina scaffolds. It was concluded that the HA/alumina bilayered scaffold with 3 mm passage-like medullary canal was instrumental in inducing host-scaffold engraftment of the defect as well as distributing the newly formed bone throughout the scaffold at 8 weeks after implantation.

    ABSTRACT: Cardioprotective effect of fimasartan, a new angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), was evaluated in a porcine model of acute myocardial infarction (MI). Fifty swine were randomized to group 1 (sham, n=10), group 2 (no angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor [ACEI] or ARB, n=10), group 3 (perindopril 2 mg daily, n=10), group 4 (valsartan 40 mg daily, n=10), or group 5 (fimasartan 30 mg daily, n=10). Acute MI was induced by occlusion of the left anterior descending artery for 50 min. Echocardiography, single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and F-18 fluorodeoxyglucose cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) were performed at baseline, 1 week, and 4 weeks. Iodine-123 meta-iodobenzylguanidine (MIBG) scan was done at 6 weeks for visualization of cardiac sympathetic activity. Left ventricular function and volumes at 4 weeks were similar between the 5 groups. No difference was observed in groups 2 to 5 in SPECT perfusion defect, matched and mismatched segments between SPECT and PET at 1 week and 4 weeks. MIBG scan showed similar uptake between the 5 groups. Pathologic analysis showed similar infarct size in groups 2 to 5. Infarct size reduction was not observed with use of fimasartan as well as other ACEI and ARB in a porcine model of acute MI.

    ABSTRACT: The treatment of esophageal cancer remains clinically challenging because of the overall poor prognosis associated with the disease. The mortality rate associated with surgical treatment is high, and the majority of diagnosed patients are old. As such, surgery is not possible in many cases, even when the cancer has progressed to a resectable state. We present the case of an 82-year-old Korean man who presented to our institution with intermittent odynophagia. Esophageal cancer with submucosal invasion and metastasis to three regional lymph nodes was diagnosed. After neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, his regional lymph nodes disappeared. Because of his poor pulmonary function, surgical treatment could not be performed. Endoscopic submucosal dissection was carried out instead, and endoscopic triamcinolone injections were performed serially. Neither recurrence nor abnormal symptoms such as dysphagia or regurgitation have developed for 36 months. The literature suggests that endoscopic submucosal dissection after chemoradiotherapy is a viable treatment modality in patients with esophageal cancer with a high surgical treatment risk.

    ABSTRACT: To evaluate the effects of repeated steroid injection at subacromial bursa with different interval for patient with periarticular shoulder disorder. Group A (n=10) received subacromial bursa injection only on their first visit, group C (n=10) received the injection on their first visit and one week later, and group B (n=10) received the injection on their first visit and two weeks later. All injections were done with a combination of 40 mg (1.0 mL) of triamcinolone and 5.0 mL 0.5% lidocaine (6 mL total). We examined the active range of motion (AROM) of the shoulder joint, visual analogue scale (VAS), and shoulder disability questionnaire (SDQ) at baseline at 1, 2, and 4 weeks after the initial injection. In VAS, comparing the changes in VAS between groups, group B showed significant improvements compared with group A or C at 4 weeks after the initial injection (p<0.05). In SDQ, comparing the changes in SDQ between the groups, group B and C showed more improvement than group A at 4 weeks after the initial injection, but these results were not statistically significant (p>0.05). In AROM, comparing the changes in AROM of external rotation between groups, group B and C showed significant improvement compared with group A at 4 weeks after the initial injection (p<0.05). It may be more effective in pain relief for patients with periarticular disorder to receive subacromial bursa injections twice with 2-week interval, as opposed to once.
