The objectives of our current work are:
1. To investigate the toxicity of nicotine and its oxidised metabolite, cotinine, on human epithelial cell lines namely BEAS 2B and CALU 3.
2. To examine the toxic effect of the components of E‐cigarette solution on the above mentioned two epithelial cell lines.
Designing a Model to Explore Tau's Unfolded Protein ResponsePoster
The purpose of this research is to design a cell model in which ER stress caused by tau accumulation can be generated, and then investigated for changes in different ER stress-associated proteins.READ MORE
A New Method for Analyzing MSe/All Ions Fragmentation in Xenobiotic Metabolism StudiesPoster
During early drug discovery, the study of metabolism plays an essential role in determining which drug candidates move forward into development and later stages. As an alternative to traditional Data Dependent Acquisition (DDA), the use of MSE/All Ions Fragmentation (AIF) has become common in metabolite identification workflows for the analysis of metabolic hot spots. Here we present a solution for analysis of MSE/AlF in metID studies.READ MORE
Extracorporeal shockwave therapy accelerates motor axon regeneration despite a phenotypically mismatched environmentPoster
A femoral nerve defect model was adapted for the evaluation of proregenerative effects of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT). Functional evaluation, histology and qRT-PCR data show differences between sensory and motor-derived nerve transplants and a pro-regenerative effect of ESWT. These data provide evidence for the clinical application of ESWT after autologous nerve transplantation as a novel non-invasive method.READ MORE
