Biochem City – Educational application for mobile devices

Keywords: biochemistry learning, software, gamification, preparing for biochemistry exams

The biochemistry course is an integral part of all life science training (medical doctor, dentist, biologist, biotechnologist, veterinarian, food and agricultural engineer). The most challenging part of learning biochemistry successfully is understanding and memorizing the reactions with the structural formula of the molecule and understanding the systemic network of these reactions. Biochemcity is a language-independent mobile application that breaks the past practice and tries to provide a new concept to teach biochemical core material  (biochemical reactions).

Methods and materials for reducing ischemia-reperfusion injury

Ischemia is a restriction in blood supply to tissues, which causes a shortage of elements needed for the tissues to survive such as oxygen and glucose. Surprisingly, the restoration of the physiological blood flow (e.g., reperfusion) causes further tissue lesions in many cases. These local and systemic inflammatory responses caused by reperfusion following ischemia can be associated with several clinical manifestations, including lung failure, renal insufficiency, cardiac arrhythmias, acute heart failure etc. These clinical complications can significantly worsen the survival chances of patients.
