Pathology Matters, part 2 of a 3 part series: Assessing Histopathology Results

Category : Histopathology, Interventional Medicine, Medical Device testing

Part 1 of this series described the preclinical study types relying heavily on histopathology data: device safety, biocompatibility, and systemic toxicity. Here we focus on strategies for histopathology data assessment. Preclinical study histopathology data can generally be divided into three types: Qualitative Quantitative Semiquantitative Qualitative histopathology uses description to document tissue changes and is more applicable to studies where the

Pathology Matters, part 1 of a 3 part series: Preclinical Studies and Histopathology

Category : Histopathology, Interventional Medicine, ISO, Medical Device testing

The histopathology evaluation in preclinical studies is performed to support the study objectives. The study type, tissues examined, and intended data use all determine what pathology analysis is needed. Here we review the preclinical studies that rely heavily on histopathology data. Histopathology is a key component of these preclinical study types: Device safety studies Biocompatibility studies Systemic toxicity studies These

Dystrophic Mineralization of Costal Cartilage in Hartley Guinea Pigs

Category : Histopathology, Publication, Toixcology

The University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine and American Preclinical Services collaborate to document a previously undocumented novel lesion of Hartley guinea pigs, dystrophic mineralization of costal cartilage, as an incidental finding.  Abstract Hartley guinea pigs are widely used animal models of disease, particularly in studies of osteoarthritis. The purpose of this study was to investigate lesions in the
