A Facile and Eco-friendly Route to Fabricate Poly(Lactic Acid) Scaffolds with Graded Pore Size Roberto Scaffaro1, Francesco Lopresti1, Luigi Botta1, Andrea Maio1, Fiorenza Sutera1, Maria Chiara Mistretta1, Francesco Paolo La Mantia1 1Department of civil, environmental, aerospace, and materials engineering (DICAM), RU INSTM, University of Palermo In this work, poly(lactic acid)/polyethylene glycol (PLA/PEG) scaffolds were prepared by using a combination of melt mixing and selective leaching. The method herein discussed permitted to develop three-layer scaffolds by highly controlling both porosity and pore size. The mechanical properties were also evaluated in a physiological environment.
Exosomal miRNA Analysis in Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) Patients' Plasma Through qPCR: A Feasible Liquid Biopsy Tool Marco Giallombardo*1,2, Jorge Chacártegui Borrás*2,3, Marta Castiglia4, Nele Van Der Steen3, Inge Mertens5,6, Patrick Pauwels7,3, Marc Peeters8,3, Christian Rolfo2,3 1Department of Biopathology and Medical Biotechnology, Section of Biology and Genetics, University of Palermo, 2Phase I-Early Clinical Trials Unit, Oncology Department, Antwerp University Hospital (UZA), 3Center for Oncological Research (CORE), Antwerp University, 4Department of Surgical, Oncological and Oral Sciences, Section of Medical Oncology, University of Palermo, 5Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO), 6CORE, Campus Groenenborger, Antwerp University, 7Molecular Pathology, Pathology Department, Antwerp University Hospital (UZA), 8Oncology Department, Antwerp University Hospital (UZA) This protocol describes the feasibility to perform miRNA profiling in exosomes, released in plasma of NSCLC patients, through a commercial exosome isolation kit with Proteinase K and RNAse treatments, in order to avoid circulating miRNAs contamination and evaluate their biomarker features in NSCLC.
