- Miconazole protects blood vessels from MMP9-dependent rupture and hemorrhage
Summary: A phenotype-based chemical screen in zebrafish identifies miconazole as a novel hemorrhagic suppressor. Miconazole inhibits vessel rupture and hemorrhages by decreasing pErk and MMP9 in zebrafish and rats.
- High- and ultrahigh-field magnetic resonance imaging of naïve, injured and scarred vocal fold mucosae in rats
Summary: Magnetic resonance imaging is shown to allow the nondestructive assessment of acute injury and scar formation in vocal fold mucosa, as demonstrated ex vivo using a preclinical rat model.
