    • Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis & Indeterminate Colitis – Video 2 of 8


      from Michael Weiss Added 58 0 0

      This is Video 2 of 8 from my September 15, 2014 interview w/ Dr. Mark L. Chapman and focuses on the definition of Inflammatory Bowel Disease and then Dr. Chapman explains the differences between Crohn's Disease, Ulcerative Colitis and Indeterminate Colitis. By way of brief background, I recently had the opportunity to interview a legitimate world-class physician, Dr. Mark L. Chapman of Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City, about the chronic, incurable, autoimmune disease from which I have severely suffered for over thirty (30) years. But Inflammatory Bowel Disease (“IBD”) affects MILLIONS around the world, of all ages and ethnicities, and tends to “personalize,” or customize, its symptoms and severity leaving some with “just” an expensive chronic disease and others with a living nightmare in which the treatments are as pervasively devastating as the disease. Through my charitable organization, the “Crohn’s Disease Warrior Patrol” ["CDWP"], I’ve created eight (8) short videos from my ninety (90) minute September 15, 2014 interview with Dr. Chapman to help raise global awareness about the potential severe, disabling and devastating physical, emotional, psychological, professional, social, financial and familial effects Inflammatory Bowel Disease can wreak on one’s life.

      • Developing Biomarkers


        from Scotland's Rural College Added 12 0 0

        pan SRUC seminar by Sarah Hall, SRUC on 10th of April 2014. The talk will be covering the work of the Biomarkers Lab. The Biomarkers Lab is a research laboratory based within Animal & Veterinary Sciences. Over the last couple of years we have developed a number of techniques that are available to other members of SRUC research staff. I will talk about the techniques we have on offer, both routine (DNA/RNA extraction, Spectrophotometric assay & blood processing) as well as the development of new techniques, such as Fluorescent microsphere immunoassays (FMIA) to measure cytokines and other proteins. We also have resources to measure glucocorticoids, such as cortisol and cortisone using enzyme linked immunoassays (ELISA). We are also interested in developing non-invasive biomarkers. If you have an interest in lab-based measurements or are curious about how they might be integrated you’re your research, please come along.

        • PROPEL - Retraction


          from Karen Guinn Added 8 0 0

          This is PROPEL being used to accelerate the retraction of the cuspid into a full Class I cuspid position. There were 2 vertical lines done with PROPEL medial and distal to the cuspid and medial to the bicuspid on the left side of the mouth. This was a perfect case for PROPEL because this patient disappears quite often and his case needs to be accelerated.
