While rodents have long been used to model many human diseases, their anatomical, physiological, and immunological differences from humans cannot be ignored when modeling respiratory inflammation. Recently, Khoury et al. demonstrated how ferrets can be used to model inflammatory respiratory disease and injury, which we review in this blog post.
Given that SARS-CoV-2 is primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets, with respiratory mucosa being the main viral entry route, is intramuscular administration the most effective vaccine delivery method to fight COVID-19? In this blog post, we have reviewed one recent study that reported the design and preclinical testing of an inhalable, exosome-based COVID-19 vaccine.
The 2022 InsideScientific Research Technology & Innovation Summits focus on specific research and therapeutic areas, reviewing how novel technologies and innovative services are advancing discovery in each particular field.
A presentation on key issues effecting the accuracy and reproducibility of measuring Oxygen Consumption, VO2, via indirect calorimetry utilizing Metabolic Carts, and best-practices for scientists to drive more consistent and precise measurements.
Walter Habenbacher and Frazer Findlay discuss the fundamentals of noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP) monitoring and present new capabilities through the integration of NIBP technology and physiological recording systems.
Experts discuss the fundamentals of real-time, beat-to-beat noninvasive blood pressure (NIBP) monitoring and present new research capabilities enabled through the integration of NIBP technology and physiological recording systems.
A webinar discussing the effects of tilt, exercise and high altitude on human cardiorespiratory and autonomic nervous systems, as studied in traditional laboratory settings and on location during a trek to Everest Base Camp.
Brian Roche and Jason Payseur discuss how to integrate hemodynamic, respiratory and neurological measurements to study multiple biological systems simultaneously while benefiting from more efficient data collection and workflow in the laboratory.
