Vereinfachte Menschen Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs) Isolierung und Handhabung Sara Najmeh*1, Jonathan Cools-Lartigue*1, Betty Giannias1, Jonathan Spicer1, Lorenzo E. Ferri1 1LD MacLean Surgical Research Laboratories, Department of Surgery, McGill University Im folgenden Protokoll beschreiben wir eine sehr einfache Möglichkeit, Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs) aus humanem Vollblut unter Verwendung leicht verfügbarer Reagenzien zu isolieren. Dann zeigt, wie die isolierten Netze können in einem in vitro-Adhäsionstest mit Krebszellen verwendet werden.

Mesenteric Angiography for Acute Gastrointestinal Bleed: Predictors of Active Extravasation and Outcomes Canadian Journal of Surgery. Journal Canadien De Chirurgie. Dec, 2012 | Pubmed ID: 22992399 Ongoing gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) following endoscopic therapy and deciding between mesenteric angiography and surgery often challenge surgeons. We sought to identify predictors of positive angiographic study (active contrast medium extravasation) and characterize outcomes of embolization for acute GIB.
Neutrophil Extracellular Traps in Cancer Progression Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences : CMLS. Nov, 2014 | Pubmed ID: 25070012 Neutrophils are being increasingly recognized as an important element in tumor progression. They have been shown to exert important effects at nearly every stage of tumor progression with a number of studies demonstrating that their presence is critical to tumor development. Novel aspects of neutrophil biology have recently been elucidated and its contribution to tumorigenesis is only beginning to be appreciated. Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are neutrophil-derived structures composed of DNA decorated with antimicrobial peptides. They have been shown to trap and kill microorganisms, playing a critical role in host defense. However, their contribution to tumor development and metastasis has recently been demonstrated in a number of studies highlighting NETs as a potentially important therapeutic target. Here, studies implicating NETs as facilitators of tumor progression and metastasis are reviewed. In addition, potential mechanisms by which NETs may exert these effects are explored. Finally, the ability to target NETs therapeutically in human neoplastic disease is highlighted.
Functional Outcomes and Quality of Life After Proximal Gastrectomy with Esophagogastrostomy Using a Narrow Gastric Conduit Annals of Surgical Oncology. Mar, 2015 | Pubmed ID: 25212836 The best surgical approach for tumors of the proximal stomach remains controversial. For proximal gastrectomy (PG), the evidence regarding quality of life (QoL) and functional outcomes is controversial. Moreover, there are limited data from non-Asian settings.
