The study compared the accuracy of two cardiac output monitors, the Retia Argos and the Edwards Lifesciences FloTrac across 58 patients undergoing off-pump coronary artery bypass surgery, yielding 572 sets of cardiac output measurements from each device.
The study was led by Dr. Randy Loftus, MD, an Associate Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics, and Dr. Franklin Dexter, MD, PhD, University of Iowa Professor in the Department of Anesthesia.
The goal of the preclinical work was to investigate the following: to see if low-intensity pulsed ultrasound could enhance the therapeutic efficacy of anti-PD-1 in C57BL/6 mice – bearing intracranial GL261 gliomas; epidermal growth factor receptor variant III (EGFRvIII) specific chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells within NSG mice with established EGFRvIII-U87 gliomas (epidermal growth factor receptor variant III); and a genetically-engineered antigen-presenting cells (APC)-based therapy, producing the T-cell attracting chemokine CXCL10 in the GL261-bearing mice
