  • Convolutional neural network-based automatic detection of follicle cells in ovarian tissue using optical coherence tomography

    Saito K., Motani Y., Takae S., Suzuki N., Tsukada K.

    Biomedical Physics and Engineering Express (Biomedical Physics and Engineering Express)  6 ( 6 ) 065026 - 065026 2020.09

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work,  ISSN  2057-1976

     View Summary

    To preserve the fertility of young female cancer patients, ovarian tissue cryopreservation and transplantation have been investigated as next-generation reproductive medical technologies. Noninvasive visualization of follicles in ovarian tissue and cryopreservation of higher density tissue is essential for effective transplantation. We proposed the use of optical coherence tomography (OCT) that can noninvasively visualize the internal structure of the ovarian tissue. However, a method for quantifying cell density has not yet been established because of the lack of available techniques to visualize follicles noninvasively. We proposed the use of a convolutional neural network (CNN) to extract small features from medical images as an image analysis method to automatically detect follicles from the obtained OCT images. First, we collected a total of 13 ovarian tissues from four-day-old mice and acquired OCT images using a full-field-type OCT. Then, the acquired images were analyzed using three detection methods: filter processing, filter processing combined with the CNN, and only CNN. Finally, to verify the detection accuracy of each method, the detection rate and precision were calculated by taking the doctor's detection as the correct result. The results showed that the detection method only using CNN achieved a detection rate of 0.81 and precision of 0.67; this indicated that follicles could be effectively detected using our proposed method. Furthermore, it is quantitatively evident that the density of follicles from the surface layer to the deep region differs depending on the tissue. In the future, these results could be used to detect follicles in tissues of different maturation stages and quantify follicles three-dimensionally, further accelerating next-generation reproductive medicine.

  • Bacterial proteolytic activity improves drug delivery in tumors in a size, pharmacokinetic, and binding affinity dependent manner – A mechanistic understanding

    Shirai H, Tsukada K

    Journal of Controlled Release (Journal of Controlled Release)  321   348 - 362 2020.05

     View Summary

    © 2020 Elsevier B.V. Motile bacteria are able to penetrate in the distal areas of blood vessel, which makes bacteria attractive to researchers as a drug delivery vehicle carrying anti-cancer drugs to tumors. Not only therapeutic bacteria show wide anti-tumor effect but also the combination of therapeutic bacteria and conventional chemotherapy leads to dramatically large synergetic effect. We provide a mechanistic understanding of enhanced drug delivery in tumors by co-administration of chemotherapeutic agents and therapeutic bacteria. In this work, simultaneous delivery of C. novyi-NT and chemotherapeutic agents in tumors is mathematically modeled. Simulated doxorubicin concentration in tumors after Doxil administration with or without bacteria agreed reasonably well with experimental literature. Simulated doxorubicin concentration in tumors by the combination of Doxil and C. novyi-NT is over twice higher than that of Doxil alone. This enhanced doxorubicin concentration in tumors is due to the degradation of extracellular matrix of collagen by bacterial proteolytic activity, which increases hydraulic conductivity of interstitium, reduces interstitial fluid pressure, and thus increases convection through vessel walls. Additionally, it alleviates solid stress, which decompresses blood vessels, and thus increases vessel density. On the other hand, simulated doxorubicin concentration in tumors for non-liposomal free-doxorubicin is not enhanced by C. novyi-NT because vascular permeability of free-doxorubicin is larger than Doxil, and thus increased but relatively small convection across vessel walls is offset by the efflux due to increased interstitial flow. A strategy to further enhance this combination therapy is discussed along with sensitivity analysis.

  • High-throughput single-cell live imaging of photobiomodulation with multispectral near-infrared lasers in cultured T cells

    Katagiri W., Lee G.H., Tanushi A., Tsukada K., Choi H.S., Kashiwagi S.

    Journal of Biomedical Optics (Journal of Biomedical Optics)  25 ( 3 ) 1 - 18 2020.03

    ISSN  10833668

     View Summary

    © 2020 by ASME. Significance: Photobiomodulation is a well-established therapeutic modality. However, the mechanism of action is poorly understood, due to lack of research in the causal relationship between the near-infrared (NIR) light irradiation and its specific biological effects, hindering broader applications of this technology. Aim: Since biological chromophores typically show several absorption peaks, we determined whether specific effects of photobiomodulation are induced with a combination of two wavelengths at a certain range of irradiance only, rather than a single wavelength of NIR light. Approach: In order to analyze a wide array of combinations of multispectral NIR light at various irradiances efficiently, we developed a new optical platform equipped with two distinct wavelengths of NIR lasers by high-throughput multiple dosing for single-cell live imaging. Two wavelengths of 1064 and 1270 nm were selected based on their photobiomodulatory effects reported in the literature. Results: A specific combination of wavelengths at low irradiances (250 to 400 mW/cm2 for 1064 nm and 55 to 65 mW/cm2 for 1270 nm) modulates mitochondrial retrograde signaling, including intracellular calcium and reactive oxygen species in T cells. The time-dependent density functional theory computation of binding of nitric oxide (NO) to cytochrome c oxidase indicates that the illumination with NIR light could result in the NO release, which might be involved in these changes. Conclusions: This optical platform is a powerful tool to study causal relationship between a specific parameter of NIR light and its biological effects. Such a platform is useful for a further mechanistic study on not only photobiomodulation but also other modalities in photomedicine.

  • Respiration and Heat Shock Protein After Short-Term Heating/Stretch-Fixing on Smooth Muscle Cells

    Kaminota N., Ogawa E., Kumagai H., Tsukada K., Arai T.

    Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology (Cardiovascular Engineering and Technology)   2020

    ISSN  1869408X

     View Summary

    © 2020, Biomedical Engineering Society. Purpose: A treatment device without a stent is needed for peripheral stenotic artery treatment. We have proposed short-term heating balloon angioplasty, photo-thermo dynamic balloon angioplasty (PTDBA). Though smooth muscle cells (SMCs) after PTDBA are fixed in a stretched formation in a porcine model, influences of this stimulus on SMCs have not been investigated. SMC migration after vascular dilatation would be related to chronic restenosis. The aim of this study was to examine respiratory activity and recovery ability of SMCs after short-term heating/stretch-fixing in vitro for chronic phase treatment effect discussion. Methods: SMCs on a stretch chamber were heated for 15 s with stretching and fixed in a stretched formation. SMC migration is correlated with the cell respiratory activity. The amount of ATP production was measured using a WST-8 assay for respiratory activity evaluation. The intracellular expression of heat shock protein 70 was measured by an ELISA for recovery ability evaluation. Results: In the case of 60 °C heating, SMC respiratory activity after short-term heating/stretch-fixing decreased drastically in all stretching rates. In the case of 50 °C heating, SMC respiratory activity decreased and then increased. Alternatively, the recovery ability at 60 °C was greater than that at 50 °C. Conclusions: SMCs heated at 60 °C with stretching would have high recovery ability and low respiratory activity related to SMC migration. These results may be important evidence in determining the treatment condition in PTDBA.

  • Development of a Patch-Type Flexible Oxygen Partial Pressure Sensor

    IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine (IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine)  8   1400607 - 7 2020

    Research paper (scientific journal), Joint Work,  ISSN  2168-2372

     View Summary

    Oxygen concentration in living organisms is one of the important vital indicators in emergency care and bedside medical settings. However, the oximetry method has limitations: the measurement site is limited to the tissue containing blood and the absolute value of oxygen concentration cannot be measured. To overcome these limitations, in this work, we develop a new oxygen sensor that can directly measure the oxygen particle pressure ( $p\text{O}_{2}$ ) on the surface of the body and organs. A light emitting diode (LED) and a photodiode (PD) were embedded in a dimethylpolysiloxane substrate mixed with carbon nanotubes. The effectiveness of the device was evaluated using calibration, bending strain tests, time and frequency response, and finally in vivo assessments. The results reveal that the calibration experiment of the fabricated oxygen sensor device showed high sensitivity. The carbon nanotube electrode has a sufficient bending resistance and does not affect the response characteristics of the LED and PD, that is, it does not affect the oxygen measurement. In vivo assessment shows that the developed patch-type flexible oxygen sensor can accurately measure $p\text{O}_{2}$ by attaching it to tissues or organs having irregularities or curved surfaces and actual measurements on rat liver surface demonstrated its feasibility.

    母親の胎内は生後に比べて非常に酸素濃度が低いが、母親と胎児をつなぐ胎児循環(胎盤や血液中で酸素を運ぶヘモグロビン分子)は効率的に酸素を運ぶためのシステムとして捉えられることが多い。しかし胎児のエネルギー消費は大きくなく、過剰な酸素は細胞分裂時に有害にさえなり得る。本研究では胎児循環を胎児細胞の為に最適な低酸素環境を維持し、体を構成するための基質(アミノ酸や脂肪酸)を選択的に運搬する循環システムであると捉え、研究対象として出生後すぐに細胞分裂を止める心筋細胞を扱う。何億年もかけ培ってきた細胞制御システムを分子・細胞・臓器レベルで解明することは、再生医療にも役立つ情報の取得に繋がると期待される。
    胎生期の栄養環境が心臓に及ぼす影響を明らかにするため、活発に分裂を繰り返して原始心臓を形成する胎児心筋細胞とアミノ酸環境の関係をラットの培養心筋細胞で検討した。ラットを用いて、胎生20日目、出生後2日目、5日目もしくは6日目、8週齢において、血中および心筋組織中の各種アミノ酸濃度を測定したところ、血中アミノ酸濃度は、Lys,Met,Phe,Trpなどが心筋分裂が盛んな胎生20日目で濃度が高く、出生後には減少した。心筋組織中のアミノ酸濃度は、出生前後で血中ほどの大きな変化はみられなかったが、Leu,Lys,Phe,Valは、出生後にやや減少していた。これらの結果より、ラット胎児の培養心筋細胞を用い、細胞増殖マーカー(Ki67)を指標として心筋細胞分裂能とアミノ酸の関係を検討した。まず胎生20日目の心筋細胞において、単独のアミノ酸での培養を行なった時の分裂能を検討し、分裂能に促進効果のありそうなアミノ酸を探索した。次いで、胎生17日目と胎生20日目の心筋細胞において、心筋分裂に影響のありそうな複数のアミノ酸を除去して培養を行ない、分裂能を検討した。単独アミノ酸培養では、Cys,Gly,His,Lys,Valでの培養が、単独でも、通常培地と同程度の細胞増殖マーカーの陽性率を示した。アミノ酸除去実験では、胎生17日目の心筋細胞においては一度に10種のアミノ酸を除去すると陽性率は有意に減少したが、その他の組み合わせ(3~9種)でははっきりとした陽性率の減少はみられなかった。胎生20日目の心筋細胞では、10種のアミノ酸の除去で陽性率が有意に減少し、Cys・Gly・Ser、His・Ile・Trpの3種、Gly・Lys・Tyr・Valの4種、必須アミノ酸9種の除去で、有意ではなかったが、陽性率が減少する傾向にあった。
    胎盤における選択的物質輸送の具体例としてアミノ酸に着目し、成体と胎児血液におけるアミノ酸濃度の違いを確認出来た。心筋細胞培養実験では、アミノ酸の種類によって心筋分裂能の維持に影響の強いものもあったが、特に影響の強いアミノ酸を認めなかった。胎児循環の酸素環境が心臓形成に及ぼす影響に関しては、ポルフィリン燐光を用いた生体微小循環酸素計測システムを構築して臍帯動静脈の酸素分圧を同時に計測しながら母体側の酸素環境を変化させて胎児循環の酸素運搬特性が大量の酸素輸送を目的とするものではなく、成体と比べて著しく低い酸素濃度を維持するための緩衝機構であることを証明する予定であったが、社会的要因から共同実験の進捗が滞り課題が残されたため。
    胎児循環のアミノ酸選択的輸送と心筋細胞分裂に関する研究に関しては、アミノ酸配合の様々な組み合わせと心筋細胞分裂能の関係を検証していく。また、胎生期の低栄養環境が心臓に及ぼす影響を解析するため、妊娠15日目から妊娠21日目まで、母ラットに50%摂食制限を施して胎生期低栄養ラットを作成し、自由摂食の母ラットから生まれた仔と出生前後(胎生20日目、出生後1日目、14日目、21日目、30週齢)において、体重、心重量の測定や、心筋組織における心機能関連遺伝子と細胞周期関連遺伝子の発現を比較する。また、胎生期低栄養ラット4週齢において、モノクロタリン(Mct)30mg/kgを皮下投与して肺高血圧症を発症させて、心エコーによる心機能評価や血中ANP濃度測定を行う。また、ポルフィリン燐光を用いた生体微小循環酸素計測システムの構築を進め、胎児循環の酸素環境と胎児心臓形成に関する情報を分子・細胞・個体循環システムでベルで統合的に検討する。

     View Summary

    We have developed a new oxygen sensor device that can be attached to the surface of curved skin and organs. The oxygen sensor consisted of three layers, a sensing layer containing an oxygen sensitive dye, an excitation light source layer, and a light receiving layer. By encapsulating oxygen sensitive dye in polystyrene nanoparticles, we succeeded in improving the measurement accuracy. We adopted electrochemiluminescence as the excitation light source and determined its electrical condition. The calibration experiment showed the possibility of measuring oxygen concentration with high sensitivity. In the future, by arranging the elements at high density, application to two-dimensional imaging of oxygen concentration is expected.
