  • participate in tissue
  • Given that patients who have been diagnosed with cancer may be more likely to experience some degree of benefit from biobanking, and can provide tissues of most interest to translational biomedical research, there is a critical need to understand potential donors' willingness to participate in tissue banking, the factors influencing their decisions, and their preferences for how their samples are used.

  • clinical
  • Their plan is to examine this tissue and correlate their findings with clinical data. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Tissue assessment data will be correlated with clinical data including preoperative AF history, demographic information, features of the medical history, details of cardiac structure/function (obtained by examining preoperative tests performed for standard indications), and the incidence of postoperative AF as a first arrhythmia diagnosis. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Participants
  • Consenting participants completed demographic questions and received up to 12 previously validated items exploring preferences for donating tissue. (biomedcentral.com)
  • cells
  • Characterization of gene expression will be performed using a multiplicity of techniques which focus on DNA, RNA and proteins produced by the various cells comprising atrial tissue. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • examination
  • Over the past decade, techniques have been refined which permit an enormous amount of information relevant to disease mechanisms to be gained from the examination of heart tissue. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • human
  • Human amniotic membrane (HAM) has been widely used as a natural scaffold in tissue engineering due to many of its unique biological properties such as providing growth factors, cytokines and tissue inhibitors of metalloproteinases. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Translational biomedical research relies on the availability of human tissue to explore disease aetiology and prognostic factors, with the objective of developing better targeted treatments. (biomedcentral.com)
  • factors
  • The reasons for this presumably relate to the fact that these factors are interacting with the tissue substrate in a variable way. (clinicaltrials.gov)
