In vivo grafting of large, engineered heart tissue patches for cardiac repair

As the prevalence of heart failure continues to climb worldwide, most treatments that are currently available work by slowing down disease progression rather than actively reversing the disease process1. Therefore, novel therapies are urgently needed, specifically for the aging population. In recent years, clinical trials in cardiac cell therapy have shown some promise however,

(December 2, 2020) WEBINAR: Tips and Tricks for Successful Rat Telemetry Blood Pressure Recordings

Chronic blood pressure recordings from the abdominal aorta are commonplace in cardiovascular physiology, however the surgical implantation of catheters can be challenging. This webinar provided an overview of the surgical protocol that we recommend when implanting Kaha Sciences blood pressure telemeters. We also discussed some simple strategies to avoid common problems and the

(November 11, 2020) WEBINAR: Introduction to Measurement of Tissue Oxygen in Rats Via Telemetry

Carbon paste electrodes connected to a potentiostat have been shown to provide stable measurement of tissue oxygen levels in vivo. Now wireless telemetry from Kaha Sciences allows the chronic long-term measurement of tissue oxygen in rats living in their home cages.  This webinar discussed how tissue oxygen measurements are made using carbon paste electrodes, how

Diabetes is a devastating disease affecting millions worldwide. Vascular complications are a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the diabetic population. Although much effort has been placed in examining mechanisms of endothelial dysfunction in diabetes, vascular smooth muscle complications are understudied. The L-type Ca2+ channel CaV1.2 plays key roles in vascular smooth muscle

(November 4, 2020) WEBINAR: Therapeutic Relevance of Elevated Blood Pressure After Ischemic Stroke in the Hypertensive Rats

Dr Pratik Thakkar from the University of Auckland presented data from their recent Hypertension publication where they used Cohousing mode (two telemeters in a single rat) to simultaneously record ICP, BP and brain tissue oxygen in a rat model of ischemic stroke. Spontaneously hypertensive rats were instrumented with telemeters to record BP, intracranial pressure,
