Precise Cellular Ablation Approach for Modeling Acute Kidney Injury in Developing Zebrafish Rohan Datta1, Ada Wong1, Troy Camarata2, Farhana Tamanna1, Imran Ilahi1, Aleksandr Vasilyev1 1Department of Biomedical Sciences, NYITCOM, 2Department of Basic Sciences, NYITCOM-A-State This work presents a new in vivo model of segmental kidney injury using kidney GFP transgenic zebrafish. The model allows for the induction of the targeted ablation of kidney epithelial cells to show the cellular mechanisms of nephron injury and repair.
Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment as a Useful Adjunctive Tool for Pneumonia Sheldon Yao1, John Hassani1, Martin Gagne1, Gebe George1, Wolfgang Gilliar1 1Department of Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine Pneumonia is one of the top ten leading causes of death in the U.S. Osteopathic manipulative techniques (OMT) may be utilized as an adjunctive therapy in the treatment of pneumonia to enhance biomechanical and immune function; and ultimately, to reduce hospital stay, duration of antibiotics, incidence of respiratory failure, and mortality. In this video-article, we will review randomized controlled studies on the use of OMT in pneumonia patients, as well as demonstrate specific hands-on techniques that are routinely practiced by osteopathic physicians when treating pulmonary infections.
