CORALVILLE, Iowa, Oct. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Tom Karagiannis from McCord Research and
Some of the latest discoveries from the McCord Research Laboratory are encompassed in this poster entitled "Infrared Chemical Mapping as a Diagnostic Tool in Wound Care". Authors of the poster include Katherine Ververis, Natalie Bonvino, Nadia Mazarakis, Neha Malik, Julia Liang, Vi Luu, Keith Bamberry, Jitraporn Vongsvivut, Danielle Martin, Nancy Ray, Andrew Hung and Jan Rice. The work was done in collaboration with the Health Innovations Research Institute, School of Applied Sciences at RMIT University in Melbourne and the Ashwood Medical Group Wound Clinic in Ashburton, Victoria, Australia.
The cutting-edge research presented in the poster was performed to create a better understanding of cellular and molecular details of diabetic healing processes that are typically aberrant. Burn wound healing was also studied. Focal Plane Array (FPA) and synchrotron- Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) chemical mapping was utilized to characterize the wound healing process. The studies highlight the potential of using these advanced technologies as diagnostic tools in wound care. Dr. Karagiannis is world-renown for his work in diabetes and has also published leading scientific papers related to cancer, antioxidants and/or epigenetics in prestigious, peer-reviewed journals.
Moreover, Dr. Karagiannis has made scientific discoveries involving the extraordinary ingredients in Olivamine (a blend of antioxidants, amino acids and vitamins) that have resulted in critical patents for McCord Research including with regards to wound healing. He has worked with the Chief Scientific Officer and Founder of McCord Research, D. Elizabeth McCord, PhD, FAPWCA to translate scientific discoveries into the creation of beneficial health products including Olivamine-containing skin and wound care products available in the US and Asia (Pinnaclife).
