Symposium Invitation: Medical research in Austrian companies


The AUVA research center knows the needs of trauma patients first hand and is always aiming to improve current treatments. By working together with partners in industry, the AUVA can provide a swift transition of new insights into the clinics.

On November 8th, the LBI Trauma is hosting a symposium on “Research and Industry” (“Forschung und Unternehmen – Gemeinsam für das Wohl von Unfallpatienten“) with subsequent networking buffet. In course of the event successful cooperations of the AUVA, the LBI Trauma and the economy are presented. Austrian companies, many of them associate members of the Austrian Cluster for Tissue Regeneration, offer insights into exciting projects in the field of regenerative medicine.

Building strong nerves at the TERMIS world congress


When an injured peripheral nerve is treated by transplantation of a replacement nerve, the choice of transplant and the application of extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT) can improve and accelerate the nerve’s regeneration. LBI scientist David Hercher is presenting the findings of his scientific work at the TERMIS world congress currently taking place in Kyoto, Japan.

Crucial ligament research presented at the TERMIS world congress


Whether it might be from a skiing accident in winter or a football accident in summer, everybody has heard of someone who has injured their cruciate ligament. How these injuries are best treated to enable a quick return to a normal lifestyle is currently in the spotlight at the TERMIS world congress, taking place September 4th-7th in Kyoto, Japan.

New international guidelines on Pre-Clinical Sepsis Studies


While the clinical definition of sepsis as well as the guidelines for patient management have been updated several times, pre-clinical sepsis research has not been subjected to any organized attempt at introducing best practices, management guidelines and standardization. This creates a large quality gap and confusion, with conflicting data reflecting the variations found in different labs, hampering efficient translation of research into clinics.

Thiamin is fuelling cellular powerhouses


Thiamin rescues cellular respiration after traumatic brain injury. Might this be a promising therapeutic approach?

The team around biophysicist Andrey Kozlov gives answers to this questions in a new publication which is about to be published in BBA – Bioenergetics.

Their interest is based on the fact that traumatic brain injuries are the most common reason for permanent work disability among young adults and mean a great loss of their quality of life. Physical and mental deficits are not only caused by the traumatic injury of brain tissue but also in course of the subsequent inflammation of neurons and disturbances of the cerebral flood flow. Both effects cause more and more neurons to die and brain tissue to deteriorate.

Friend and foe, science and art - publication on extracellular vesicles on the cover of Theranostics


Promising prospects on the application of extracellular vesicles for treating sepsis patients, but not without appropriate standardization of existing and development of new diagnostic methods – this is the core message of a paper written by an interdisciplinary team consisting of Pierre Raeven and LBI scientists Johannes Zipperle and Susanne Drechsler. It was recently published in the international Journal Theranostics.
