Co-creation of Virtual Reality Re-Usable Learning objectives for 360° video scenarios for the surgical excision of skin lesion (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Neokleous, K., Gkougkoudi, E., Hatziaros, M., Schiza, E., Matsangidou, M., Avramides, M., …Pattichis, C. (2019, May). Co-creation of Virtual Reality Re-Usable Learning objectives for 360° video scenarios for the surgical excision of skin lesion. Poster presented at IEEE International Conference on Biomedical and Health Informatics (BHI'19)

This short paper describes an educational scenario using a 360° video for the surgical excision of a skin lesion. This scenario, developed in the context of the CoViRR Erasmus+ project, offering new insights for the digital integration in learning an...

The Schistosoma mansoni cyclophilin A epitope 107-121 induces a protective immune response against schistosomiasis (2019)
Journal Article
de Melo, T. T., Mendes, M. M., Alves, C. C., Carvalho, G. B., Fernandes, V. C., Pimenta, D. L. F., …Fonseca, C. T. (2019). The Schistosoma mansoni cyclophilin A epitope 107-121 induces a protective immune response against schistosomiasis. Molecular Immunology, 111, 172-181. doi:10.1016/j.molimm.2019.04.021

Great efforts have been made to identify promising antigens and vaccine formulations against schistosomiasis. Among the previously described Schistosoma vaccine candidates, cyclophilins comprise an interesting antigen that could be used for vaccine f...

Therapeutic exploitation of IPSE, a urogenital parasite-derived host modulatory protein, for chemotherapy-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (2018)
Journal Article
Mbanefo, E. C., Le, L., Pennington, L. F., Odegaard, J. I., Jardetzky, T. S., Alouffi, A., …Hsieh, M. H. (2018). Therapeutic exploitation of IPSE, a urogenital parasite-derived host modulatory protein, for chemotherapy-induced hemorrhagic cystitis. FASEB Journal, 32(8), (4408-4419). doi:10.1096/fj.201701415r. ISSN 0892-6638

Chemotherapy-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (CHC) can be difficult to manage. Prior work suggests that IL-4 alleviates ifosfamide-induced hemorrhagic cystitis (IHC), but systemically administered IL-4 causes significant side effects. We hypothesized th...

Murine systemic thrombophilia and hemolytic uremic syndrome from a factor H point mutation (2017)
Journal Article
Ueda, Y., Mohammed, I., Song, D., Gullipalli, D., Zhou, L., Sato, S., …Song, W. (2017). Murine systemic thrombophilia and hemolytic uremic syndrome from a factor H point mutation. Blood, 129(9), (1184-1196). doi:10.1182/blood-2016-07-728253. ISSN 0006-4971

Complement plays a key role in host defense, but its dysregulation can cause autologous tissue injury. Complement activation is normally controlled by regulatory proteins, including factor H (FH) in plasma and membrane cofactor protein (MCP) on the c...
