Fate of endothelial cells after intrastromal implantation of Descemet's membrane-endothelial cell tissue.

Cell Tissue Bank 2020 Jun 1. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Humanitas Clinical and Research Center - IRCCS, via Manzoni 56, 20089, Rozzano, MI, Italy.

In non-Descemet Stripping Automated Endothelial Keratoplasty (nDSAEK), the host DM and endothelium are not removed surgically before the introduction of the posterior lamellar graft; the result is that the patient has both the healthy donor endothelium and the diseased or residual host endothelium. Conversely, DSAEK tissues, that are inserted with inverted polarity (upside down), do not survive and the graft fails. While the mechanism of endothelial cell transplantation is clear, the fate of the endothelial cells retained between two stromal interfaces and their physiological role, if any, is not well understood.

Ethical and deontological aspects of pediatric biobanks: the situation in Italy.

Cell Tissue Bank 2020 Apr 20. Epub 2020 Apr 20.

Law School, University of Camerino, Via A. D'Accorso 16, Camerino, MC, Italy.

While pediatric biobanks are a precious resource for scientific research to improve our understanding of genetic pathologies, the value of these studies should be considered together with the value of the privacy rights of pediatric donors, as they are particularly vulnerable and in many cases unable to discern the meaning of the donation of biological material and the related implications of the research. Thus this work calls for reflection on the numerous ethical and legal issues involved in the development and regulation of these biobanks. In particular, it explores what form of consent best balances the intangible rights of the minor, on the one hand, and the development of technological progress and scientific research, on the other, and examines the implications of the collection of biological material of minors in biobanks.

Rapid tissue processing using a temperature-controlled collection device to preserve tumor biomarkers.

Cell Tissue Bank 2020 Mar 14;21(1):89-97. Epub 2019 Dec 14.

Department of Laboratory Medicine, University of Washington Medical Center, Seattle, WA, USA.

Precision tissue diagnostics rely on high quality input specimens so that assay results are not affected by artifact, but advances in collection and processing of tissue specimens have lagged behind innovations in diagnostic assay development. Therefore, we have designed and evaluated a novel surgical tissue collection device that maintains and monitors sample temperature and motion throughout transport so that the major preanalytical variable of tissue temperature can be controlled and measured. This device, in combination with an improved cold-hot tissue fixation protocol affords optimal biomarker preservation in less overall time, thereby simultaneously improving diagnostic quality and turnaround time.
