Microparticles for controlled GDF6 delivery to direct ASC‐based nucleus pulposus regeneration (2019)
Journal Article
Hodgkinson, T., Stening, J. Z., White, L. J., Shakesheff, K. M., Hoyland, J. A., & Richardson, S. M. (2019). Microparticles for controlled GDF6 delivery to direct ASC‐based nucleus pulposus regeneration. Journal of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, doi:10.1002/term.2882

Currently, there is no effective long-term treatment for intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD), making it an attractive candidate for regenerative therapies. Hydrogel delivery of adipose stem cells (ASCs) in combination with controlled release of b... Read More

Targeted protein delivery: carbodiimide crosslinking influences protein release from microparticles incorporated within collagen scaffolds (2019)
Journal Article
Tanase, C. E., Qutachi, O., White, L. J., Shakesheff, K. M., McCaskie, A. W., Best, S. M., & Cameron, R. E. (2019). Targeted protein delivery: carbodiimide crosslinking influences protein release from microparticles incorporated within collagen scaffolds. Regenerative Biomaterials, doi:10.1093/rb/rbz015

Tissue engineering response may be tailored via controlled, sustained release of active agents from protein loaded degradable microparticles incorporated directly within 3D ice-templated collagen scaffolds. However, the effects of covalent crosslink... Read More

A detailed assessment of varying ejection rate on delivery efficiency of mesenchymal stem cells using narrow-bore needles (2016)
Journal Article
Rose, F., Shakesheff, K., White, L., & Amer, M. (2016). A detailed assessment of varying ejection rate on delivery efficiency of mesenchymal stem cells using narrow-bore needles. Stem Cells Translational Medicine, 5(3), 366-378. doi:10.5966/sctm.2015-0208

As the number of clinical trials exploring cell therapy rises, a thorough understanding of the limits of cell delivery is essential. We used an extensive toolset comprising various standard and multiplex assays for the assessment of cell delivery pos... Read More

Vacuolating cytotoxin genotypes are strong markers of gastric cancer and duodenal ulcer-associated Helicobacter pylori strains: A matched case-control study (2014)
Journal Article
Memon, A. A., Hussein, N. R., Miendje Deyi, V. Y., Burette, A., & Atherton, J. C. (2014). Vacuolating cytotoxin genotypes are strong markers of gastric cancer and duodenal ulcer-associated Helicobacter pylori strains: A matched case-control study. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, 52(8), 2984-2989. doi:10.1128/JCM.00551-14

The Helicobacter pylori virulence gene, cagA, and active forms of the vacuolating cytotoxin gene, vacA, are major determinants of pathogenesis. However, previous studies linking these factors to disease risk have often included patients using aspirin... Read More
