Pantheris SV, a product line extension of Avinger's onboard image-guided atherectomy platform, expands Avinger's portfolio of atherectomy devices for the treatment of PAD and increases the number of addressable procedures for the Company's Lumivascular technology by allowing physicians to target more distal regions of the vasculature in small diameter vessels.
The study was able to address these two limitations by analyzing the effect of co-implanting AIP cells with vasculature promoting cells in an accessible site such as subcutaneous.
Among specific topics are the plasticity of the maternal vasculature during pregnancy, phospholipid remodeling in physiology and disease, epithelial-stromal interactions in pancreatic cancer, cell death in the lung: the apoptosis-necroptosis axis, the regulation of blood and lymphatic vessels by immune cells in tumors and metastasis, and the physiology of optimizing health with a focus on exercise as medicine.

Notch activation leads to the cleavage of the intracellular Notch domain NICD by presenilin/y-secretase and its nuclear translocation, where it interacts with a complex composed of RBP-Jk/CSL and mastermind-like proteins (MAML) [12] to induce the transcription of target genes that regulate cell-fate determination and other events (Figure 1), for example, cell migration and proliferation in the normal vasculature and malignancy [13].
