Senior Laniado Nephrologist Moshe Shashar Presents Research at European Nephrology Conference

Europe Nephrology Conference

At the European Nephrology Conference held recently in Copenhagen, senior nephrologist at Laniado, Dr. Moshe Shashar presented his research on the effects of Aldactone on the endothelial cells.
Endothelial cells provide a protective layer for blood vessels - from the large vessels to small capillaries in the organs far from the heart. These cells may be damaged by various diseases, including liver disease, heart disease, preeclampsia and others.  In such cases, complications may arise that require immediate treatment. Dr. Shashar’s research, which to date has been carried out in the laboratory on cells, shows that Aldactone drug that is commonly used to treat high blood pressure, also improves the functioning of endothelial cells.   The next stage of the study is to examine the effect of the drug on animals like mice.

Procedure Developed at Laniado’s IVF Unit Greeted
with Great Interest at Israel Fertility Association Conference

Laniado unique worldwide in implanting embryo on fourth day after egg retrievalFertility conference

Since 1978, five million babies around the world have been born through in-vitrio-fertilization – over 37,000 of them in Israel in the last year alone.  
The procedure is a delicate one, with the date of implantation of the embryo after the egg is  retrieved critical to both fetus survival and development as well as the formation of defects.   A successful procedure requires the initial development of the embryo under laboratory conditions on the one hand and its continued development under natural uterine conditions as soon as possible, on the other.
