Pushing the boundaries of vaccine research

L-R: Dr Kirsty Wilson, Honours student Julie Tran and Professor Magdalena Plebanski
by Anne Crawford

In 2010 Professor Magdalena Plebanski observed something that didn’t make sense to her as an immunologist; a nanoparticle made of polystyrene exposed to the lungs of mice was rendering the animal resistant to developing asthma.

But why would it? she asked.

The inert polystyrene particle did not cause inflammation, was non-toxic, safe and protected the mouse against the disease in a similar way to a vaccine. Conventional immunology with its antigens, T cells and antigen-specific responses, didn’t explain it.

Neural control of artificial limbs via osseointegrated implants: Dr. Max Ortiz Catalán

Dr Max Ortiz Catalán giving a TED talk on osseointegration. Link
You are invited to attend a Central Clinical School seminar at the AMREP seminar room on Bionic Limbs Integrated to Bone, Nerves, and Muscles.


Dr Max Ortiz Catalán will shed light on how biology and mechatronics can integrate man and machine through intuitive prosthetics, controlled by the mind.

The Alfred’s Mr Frank Bruscino-Raiola Director of Plastic Surgery, Mr Steven Gray, and the Alfred Hospital Osseointegration and Targeted Muscle Reinnervation Team, have helped to pioneer this revolutionary technique which enables amputees to gain better and more natural control of their prosthetic arm. They have strong collaborations with leading centres around the world, including Integrum in Sweden and Rehabilitation Institute in Chicago.

This event is co-hosted by the Plastic Surgery Unit at the Alfred Hospital and the Department of Surgery, Central Clinical School, Monash University, Alfred Centre.

Details:

Dr Ortiz Catalán's research focuses on neural control of artificial limbs via osseointegrated implants. This involves bio-electric signals acquisition and processing, neural interfaces, machine learning, osseointegration, and neurostimulation. He is also interested in the use of virtual and augmented reality for neuromuscular rehabilitation and treatment of phantom limb pain (PLP) using myoelectric pattern recognition to decode motor volition.

Dr Ortiz Catalán is leading the development and clinical implementation of the Osseointegrated Human-Machine Gateway. This technology made possible, for the first time, the direct connection of a robotic prosthesis to the patients' bone, nerves, and muscles. He has also developed a novel treatment for phantom limb pain, which is currently under an international clinical investigation. These projects have in common the use of bioelectric pattern recognition (BioPatRec) for the decoding of motor intention. Dr. Ortiz Catalan has made the algorithms necessary for such task available in an open source platform for research and development (BioPatRec). He founded and leads the Biomechatronics and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory​​, and he is an Associate Editor for the Journal of NeuroEngineering and Rehabilitation (JNER).

Dr Max Ortiz Catalán is an Assistant Professor at the Biomedical Signals and Systems research unit, and founder of the Biomechatronics and Neurorehabilitation Laboratory (@ChalmersBNL). He works in close collaboration with the Centre for Advanced Reconstruction of Extremities (C.A.R.E.) at Sahlgrenska University Hospital, and Integrum AB, both in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Rapid measurement of platelet function moves closer to fruition

2017 Nandurkar group, three of whom are authors on the article
describing their device for measuring platelet function.
by Anne Crawford

Monash and RMIT scientists have edged closer to refining a device that will rapidly measure platelet function in the blood of people with von Willebrand's disease (vWD), the most common inherited bleeding disorder in Western populations. The device will also act as a high-throughput screening tool for other blood platelet disorders and new drug discovery.

Enzyme finding is good news for vegetarians with bowel disorder

Legumes, soy milk and nuts may be back on the menu for those
suffering from IBS, thanks to Monash University research.
by Anne Crawford

 A digestive enzyme supplement may hold the key to improving the symptoms suffered by patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) when they eat a carbohydrate commonly found in legumes, soy milk and nuts, according to Monash University research.

Researchers in the Central Clinical School’s Department of Gastroenterology have found that oral α-galactosidase co-ingested with foods high in galacto-oligosaccharides (GOS) helps reduce symptoms. IBS is a common functional gastrointestinal disorder affecting one in seven Australian adults, characterised by chronic and relapsing symptoms including lower abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, wind, distension and altered bowel habits.

Potential breakthrough in treating post-traumatic epilepsy in children

Dr Bridgette Semple researches children's epilepsy
Researchers have discovered that an anti-inflammatory compound may help improve cognitive function and reduce vulnerability to epileptic seizures in children who have suffered a brain injury. They have described a new animal model of epilepsy that develops after brain injury, particularly in young brains, that will hopefully enable doctors to better target treatment.

Published in The Journal of Neuroscience, the study was led by Dr Bridgette Semple from the University of Melbourne & Department of Medicine at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, and Melbourne Brain Centre.  Bridgette will be moving to the Central Clinical School as part of the new Department of Neurosciences headed by Professor Terry O'Brien in October 2017.

Bacterial resistance raises doubts about pneumonia antibiotic use

Professor Allen Cheng is an infectious diseases physician
at the Alfred

by Anne Crawford

Monash University scientists reviewing an antibiotic commonly used to treat pneumonia have concluded that it may no longer be reliable as a monotherapy for serious infections due to bacterial resistance.

Macrolide antibiotics, which include erythromycin, clarithromycin and azithromycin, are an important class of antimicrobials for pneumococcal diseases.

However, a report by Professor Allen Cheng from the Department of Infectious Diseases, and Senior Adjunct lecturer Dr Adam Jenney found that macrolide,  most commonly used in combination with effective antibiotics such as penicillin or cephalosporins, may not be reliable as monotherapy for serious pneumococcal disease.

Studies show emotion plays role in chronic low back pain

Sin-Ki Ng is a PhD student at the
Monash Alfred Psychiatry research
centre

by Anne Crawford

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is a debilitating disease, adversely affecting quality of life and wellbeing, potentially leading to depression, long-term disability, time off work due to pain and reduced productivity. Yet its underlying mechanisms remain unclear.

Now a review of available data by Central Clinical School PhD student Sin-Ki Ng and others at the Monash Alfred Psychiatry Research Centre (MAPrc) suggests that emotional and cognitive processes may be the core contributor to it.
