Multimodal in vivo imaging in preclinical evaluation of medical interventions in stroke (and its context in the digital society)

The critical step in the preclinical evaluation of envisaged medical interventions (new drugs, stem cell applications, electroceuticals) is testing them on the laboratory animals. In case of the ischemic stroke, a clinically relevant animal model is middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). Due to the complex cascade of events after brain ischemia, longitudinal follow up of stroke consequences is a crucial element, and it is enabled through assessing the morphological and molecular parameters by the in vivo imaging.
In our research, we use magnetic resonance imaging (7T Bruker MRI) and bioluminescence imaging (optical imager Perkin Elmer IVIS Spectrum) to follow up the animals up to 28 days after ischemic brain lesion. The dedicated collection of transgenic animals carrying luciferase reporters enables to get insight in neuroinflammation (Tlr2-luc/GFP transgenic mouse), axonal repair (Gap43-luc/GFP transgenic mouse), and apoptosis (caged-luciferin bioluminescence imaging). Each modality is informative individually, but we could show that using multimodal approach and standardizing the bioluminescence according to the MRI measurements enhances the detection of the significant changes among tested animal groups. In case of mice with Tlr2-deficiency, which exhibits modified neuroinflammation after ischemic lesion, the in vivo imaging revealed the enhanced elements of brain repair but as well prolonged and increased apoptosis.
The stroke, being a major health problem, is in need to be addressed through innovative approaches in order to help the patients and protect the healthy ones. The digital society being global and immediate generates both benefits and risks for the individuals expecting to be treated and cured by current advances of medical technologies. I would argue that translating the logic of the offline environment can create the confusion and impasses in the online context. The complexity of the digital geometries distort online space and time, having as a consequence disruption of the medical regulations and the risky individual trajectories in a search for health. The navigation through digital knowledge landscapes appears to be a key element of the person-centered health care.

Keynote topic

New approaches in medicine: Endobiogeny-integrative physiology and systems analysis in the clinic

Endobiogeny is a theory of complex global systems analysis and integrative physiology. It was developed by physicians to assist medical decision making. Serum biomarkers are considered to be the downstream output of global upstream neuroendocrine regulators of metabolism. They are related through a combinatorial process, then algorithmically analyzed. This approach allows for a dynamic, integrated, interrelated and holographic approach to the human being at multiple scales of function. At microscopic biological scale, cellular processes can be evaluated. At the mesoscopic physiologic scale, tissue, organ and global organismic function can be evaluated. At the macroscopic phenomenological scale, psychological, social, and symbiotic tendencies, and, response to chronobiologic, geomagnetic and cosmobiologic demands can be evaluated. The system offers clinicians the ability to observe the evolution on the patient in response to interventions across space and time. This offers a new approach to precision and personalized medicine based on the organism’s expressed phenotypic capabilities for auto-regulation, rather than latent genetic possibilities.
