  • The Role of Histopathology in Characterizing and Validating Animal Models of Human Diseases

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 06/23/2021

    This webinar will highlight how IHC and H&E stains are utilized in animal model characterization and validation.

    Animal models of human diseases are a crucial part of medicine and biological research. Animal models are developed to closely mimic a pathological condition or disease process in humans for the purpose of studying more closely that specific disease or to predict the clinical outcome of a novel therapeutic. It is important to collect physical observations and biological samples to help with characterization and validation. Biological samples can then be further tested using in vitro analyses, which include Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and H&E stains. This webinar will highlight how IHC and H&E stains are utilized in animal model characterization and validation.

  • Cryo-Fluorescence Tomography: A Technique to Bridge Multi-Resolution Multi-Modal Assays

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 05/26/2021

    In vivo fluorescence allows for monitoring of tumor progression over time. Traditional ex vivo techniques only focus on small sample sizes while allowing for high-resolution evaluation and characterization. Using a Cryo-Fluorescence Tomography (CFT) imaging approach, an imaging modality based on serial slicing and off-the-block fluorescence imaging, we can bridge the gap between in vivo and ex vivo resolution of the entire animal.

    The ability to engineer mouse models with human cancer is valuable tool used by research groups around the world to better understand the biology of disease and drug targeting characteristics. Many human cancer cell lines have been engineered to express fluorescence so that in vivo imaging can be used to monitor and stage disease progression. Following in vivo imaging, traditional histo-pathology can be performed to validate in vivo measurements. However, a gap in sensitivity and resolution between in vivo and ex vivo techniques may make it hard to characterize an animal model.

  • What’s New with PD-L1 as a Companion Diagnostic?

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 03/24/2021

    Overview of what is new, why PD-L1 is so important, and a discussion of PD-L1 in the histology lab.

    Predictive biomarker testing to inform treatment decision-making has radically influenced the practice of both pathology and oncology today. As the treatment scenario evolves, choosing the appropriate biomarker to select the right patients become vital. In this talk we will review the most up-to-date FDA approvals for checkpoint inhibitors and PD-L1 companion diagnostic assays. We will then compare the different PD-L1 scoring systems (TPS, CPS, IC, TC) and point out the role of clinical validation of PD-L1 assays. Finally, we will look at the future of cancer targeted therapies and emerging biomarkers.

  • Understanding and Updating Tissue Processing Protocols Using the GREAT Method

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 01/27/2021

    This webinar will review the importance of protocol review and introduce the GREAT method.

    When was the last time the tissue processing protocol in your laboratory was updated? Most laboratories have been using the same set of tissue processing protocols for as long as they can remember. Many labs do not know where their processing protocol came from or even how it was put together in the first place. To some, considering a protocol change is intimidating because they have no idea where to start. New tissue processors are often brought into the laboratory only to be saddled with the same old processing protocols that could be decades old in some cases. Tissue processing is one of the most time-intensive tasks in a histology laboratory, and with the importance of turnaround time and quality continuing to grow, few labs realize that opportunities for efficiency gains can be found right under their noses in terms of updating their protocols. In this workshop, we will debunk some processing myths, review the purpose and function of the common steps and reagents in tissue processing, and finally break down the anatomy of a protocol and learn how to evaluate a protocol for opportunities for improvement using the GREAT method.
