  • Standard terminology for reproductive tissue and cell products for use in ART. [Journal Article]
    Hum Reprod Open. 2019; 2019(2):hoz005.Ashford P, Rydman K, … Freire M
  • Medical products of human origin (MPHO) distributed for use in assisted reproduction are currently labelled and identified using national or local systems. Products may be distributed internationally with potentially confusing identification labelling due to inconsistent terminology and definitions. In other fields of MPHO activity terminology has previously been standardized through professional…
  • Effect of Storage Temperature on Allograft Bone. [Journal Article]
    Transfus Med Hemother. 2012 Feb; 39(1):36-40.Fölsch C, Mittelmeier W, … Peter Matter H
  • CONCLUSIONS: Biomechanical studies showed no clinically relevant impairment of biomechanical properties of cancellous bone due to different storage temperatures. Sterilization procedures bear the advantage of inactivating enzymatic activity though reducing the risk of proteolysis. In those cases a storage temperature of -20 °C can be recommended for at least a period of 2 years, and the risk of undesired effects seems to be low for native unprocessed bone.

  • Use of the Kishigami Atlantoaxial Tension Band in eight toy breed dogs with atlantoaxial subluxation. [Journal Article]
    Vet Surg. 2010 Jan; 39(1):35-42.Pujol E, Bouvy B, … Pujol P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Kishigami AATB may be acceptable as an alternative method for dorsal stabilization of AA subluxation in toy breed dogs in which use of ventral screws or pins is challenging. Experience with this technique in a larger population is necessary to compare our results to those reported by ventral approach. CLINICAL RELEVANCE; The surgical technique described is effective, safe, and simple in the surgical treatment of AA subluxation in toy breed dogs.
  • Aspects on evolution of fungal beta-lactam biosynthesis gene clusters and recruitment of trans-acting factors. [Review]
    Phytochemistry. 2009 Oct-Nov; 70(15-16):1801-11.Brakhage AA, Thön M, … Hortschansky P
  • Penicillins and cephalosporins are beta-lactam antibiotics. The formation of hydrophobic penicillins has been reported in fungi only, notably Penicillium chrysogenum and Aspergillus (Emericella) nidulans, whereas the hydrophilic cephalosporins are produced by both fungi, e.g., Acremonium chrysogenum (cephalosporin C), and bacteria. The producing bacteria include Gram-negatives and Gram-positives,…
  • B-cell lymphoma in retrieved femoral heads: a long term follow up. [Journal Article]
    BMC Musculoskelet Disord. 2009 May 20; 10:53.Zwitser EW, de Gast A, … van Royen BJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: In routine histopathological screening we found variable numbers of low-grade B-cell lymphoma throughout the years, even in a group of femoral heads that were eligible for bone transplantation. Allogenic transmission of malignancy has not yet been reported on, but surviving viruses are proven to be transmissible. Therefore, we recommend the routine histopathological evaluation of all femoral heads removed at primary total hip arthroplasty as a tool for quality control, whether the femoral head is used for bone banking or not.
  • Tissue processing: role of secondary sterilization techniques. [Journal Article]
    Clin Sports Med. 2009 Apr; 28(2):191-201, vii.Azar FM
  • Secondary sterilization of musculoskeletal allografts may use chemicals, radiation, or combinations of these. No sterilization techniques have been definitively proven to be more effective than others, and their biomechanical and biological effects on allograft tissue remain largely unknown. The current risk of an allograft infection appears to be much less than the risk of infection surrounding …

    J Craniofac Surg. 2005 Jul; 16(4):579-85.Pietrzak WS, Woodell-May J
  • Allograft human bone is an integral part of the surgeons' armamentarium and will continue to be for the near future. The intraoperative handling and/or mechanical properties are critical to its function. These properties are significantly influenced by the composition and the structure of the bone, which varies from donor to donor. Published studies of human bone composition use bone derived from…
  • Skin bank organization. [Review]
    Clin Dermatol. 2005 Jul-Aug; 23(4):353-6.Pianigiani E, Ierardi F, … Andreassi A
  • Skin allografts were first used at the end of the last century by Girdner [Girdner JH. Skin grafting with graft taken from the dead subject. Med Rec (NY) 1881;20:119-20]; however, routine storage of human tissue developed only in the 1930s to 1940s [Webster JP. Refrigerated skin grafts. Ann Surg 1944;120:431-49] when reliable preservation methods became available. The first proper skin bank was t…
  • Living cells in 1 of 2 frozen femoral heads. [Journal Article]
    Acta Orthop Scand. 2003 Dec; 74(6):661-4.Weyts FA, Bos PK, … Verhaar JA
  • Allogeneic, frozen bone is now the most commonly grafted tissue (Norman-Taylor and Villar 1997). Tissue banks collect bone material according to protocols developed with the aim of maintaining osseoinductive properties of grafts as well as preventing transmission of viral or bacterial diseases (Standards from the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) or from the European Association for Mus…
  • Invasive Streptococcus pyogenes after allograft implantation--Colorado, 2003. [Case Reports]
    MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. 2003 Dec 05; 52(48):1174-6.Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
  • Allograft tissues are used for various orthopedic procedures (e.g., ligament reconstruction, meniscal transplantation, and spinal surgery). In 2002, approximately one million allografts were distributed for transplantation (American Association of Tissue Banks [AATB], unpublished data, 2002). Recent reports of allograft-associated infections have prompted evaluation of the processing and quality-…
  • Cadaveric allograft discards as a result of positive skin cultures. [Journal Article]
    Burns. 2001 May; 27(3):267-71.Obeng MK, McCauley RL, … Schutzler SS
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the strict adherence to AATB protocol, microbial contamination of cadaveric allograft skin does not reach zero. It is not surprising that S. epidermidis was the predominant isolate, since skin is one of its common habitats. Continued vigilance in microbial testing remains paramount to ensure the quality of the allograft.
  • Histopathology of retrieved allografts of the femoral head. [Journal Article]
    J Bone Joint Surg Br. 1999 Mar; 81(2):336-41.Sugihara S, van Ginkel AD, … Wuisman PI
  • From November 1994 to March 1997, we harvested 137 grafts of the femoral head from 125 patients for donation during total hip arthroplasty according to the guidelines of the American Associations of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the European Association of Musculo-Skeletal transplantation (EAMST). In addition to the standards recommended by these authorities, we performed histopathological examination …
  • Current status of semen banking in the USA. [Review]
    Hum Reprod. 1998 May; 13 Suppl 2:55-67; discussion 68-9.Critser JK
  • Anonymous donor sperm banking has been a fundamental aspect of reproductive medicine for several decades. In 1987, >170,000 women in the USA were treated for infertility using artificial insemination. Current estimates suggest that the number of women seeking treatment for infertility has increased markedly since that time; however, there are no accurate, updated data to indicate the magnitude of…
  • Probing the domain structure of abrin-a by tryptic digestion. [Journal Article]
    Eur J Biochem. 1996 Sep 15; 240(3):564-9.Lin SH, Chow LP, … Lin JY
  • Abrin-a is a potent plant toxin that consists of A and B chains linked by a disulfide bond. The abrin-a A chain (AaTA) has N-glycosidase activity while the abrin-a B chain (AaTB) has galactose-binding activity. By partial tryptic digestion, the domain structure of abrin-a was investigated. Seven tryptic fragments with molecular masses greater than 3500 Da were isolated and characterized. One frag…
  • Use of PCR-based methods for selection of integrated transgenes in preimplantation embryos. [Journal Article]
    Mol Reprod Dev. 1994 Dec; 39(4):384-91.Cousens C, Carver AS, … O'Neill GT
  • The production of transgenic animals from ungulate species is an inefficient and expensive procedure. The development of selection methods to identify the small number of transgenic preimplantation embryos produced following DNA microinjection of one-cell embryos would greatly reduce both the cost and effort of these procedures. This study has examined the fate of the ovine beta-lactoglobulin-hum…
