SPOTLIGHT ON COLLABORATION
Understanding Placenta Function and
Pre-eclampsia


When the placenta fails to function normally, it can put the health and life of both fetus and mother at serious risk. Pre-eclampsia kills roughly a half a million babies and around 76,000 mothers every year globally.



Dr.Colin Murdoch

As research into the placenta is desperately needed, Dr. Colin Murdoch and his team at Aston Medical School are developing a radical new way of carrying out tests on the organ.

With €4million funding from the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, the Aston University team is developing a method of growing human placentas on a ‘chip’ - called 'iPlacenta'.


The placentas are grown from cells harvested from umbilical cords, and so treatments can be tested without any risk to either mothers or fetuses. 15 PhD students will be developing models of placenta and investigating diseases such as preeclampsia. As part of this initiative, the team is collaborating with us at FUJIFILM VisualSonics to better understand the placenta and help identify those most at risk. The project launches in January of 2018.



FEATURED PUBLICATION
Evaluation of Colitis and Carcinogenesis using Molecular Contrast-Enhanced Ultrasound

This recent article by Bruckner et al., uses commercially available target-ready microbubbles and antibodies to non-invasively assess the severity of intestinal inflammation and development of tumors in a mouse model of colitis.

In Vivo Photoacoustic Detection of Lymph Node Metastasis using Glycol-Chitosan-Coated Gold Nanoparticles
Submitted by: Diego Dumani, PhD Candidate, Georgia Institute of Technology

Metastasis rather than primary tumors determine prognosis and mortality in the majority of cancer patients. Detection of metastatic lesions is critical to determine prognosis and suitable treatments. We developed a method...read full story.

Sandra explains: Easiest Method When Counting Mouse Fetuses



This issue's tip has been shared by Dr. Sandra Meyer,Senior Applications Specialist, Europe.
This content is available to registered users only. "When imaging fetuses, I find it easiest to start with a lower frequency probe like the MX/MS 250 to get an overview of how many fetuses there are and their positioning. Starting at the
uterus, I..."
