Keeping the Holidays "Happy"

Regardless of religion, belief systems, or where in this wonderful world you call home, December can be magical. The reasons this Holiday Season brings people together are many. Celebrations and traditions are opportunities to share loving kindness, to express joy and laughter, and to re-connect. Staying present in the true meaning of the Holiday Season will open our eyes to the real gifts of peace, harmony, laughter, love, joy, compassion, caring, sharing, and gratitude.

As always, for those who love the Magic of Santa Clause, we have included “Is There a Santa Claus?
reprinted from the September 21, 1897, number of The New York Sun.

And for those who may have difficulty finding the “Happy” in the Holiday Season we would like to share with you this resource from the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science. What could be a better Holiday gift to yourself than the gift of Health and Happiness.

Adipose Stromal Cell Spheroids for Cartilage Repair: A Promising Tool for Unveiling the Critical Maturation Point

Published: 12 October 2023

Articular cartilage lacks intrinsic regenerative capabilities, and the current treatments fail to regenerate damaged tissue and lead only to temporary pain relief. These limitations have prompted the development of tissue engineering approaches, including 3D culture systems. Thanks to their regenerative properties and capacity to recapitulate embryonic processes, spheroids obtained from mesenchymal stromal cells are increasingly studied as building blocks to obtain functional tissues. The aim of this study was to investigate the capacity of adipose stromal cells to assemble in spheroids and differentiate toward chondrogenic lineage from the perspective of cartilage repair.

3D Cellular Architecture Affects MicroRNA and Protein Cargo of Extracellular Vesicles

Adv Sci (Weinh). 2019 Feb 20; 6(4): 1800948.
Published online 2018 Dec 20. doi: 10.1002/advs.201800948

The success of malignant tumors is conditioned by the intercellular communication between tumor cells and their microenvironment, with extracellular vesicles (EVs) acting as main mediators. While the value of 3D conditions to study tumor cells is well established, the impact of cellular architecture on EV content and function is not investigated yet. Here, a recently developed 3D cell culture microwell array is adapted for EV production and a comprehensive comparative analysis of biochemical features, RNA and proteomic profiles of EVs secreted by 2D vs 3D cultures of gastric cancer cells, is performed.
