Animation illustrating the tumor response to NPS treatment


This animation was created by Pulse Biosciences to illustrate some of the cellular responses to NPS treatment. Immunogenic apoptosis results in the translocation of calreticulin from the endoplasmic reticulum to the cell surface. Calreticulin is an “eat me” molecule that attracts the dendritic cells to phagocytose the tumor cells and present their antigens to the immune system to mount an immune response against the tumor cells.

 

 


Pulse Biosciences explains the unique nature of Nano-Pulsed Stimulation (NPS)


Dr. Richard Nuccitelli, Chief Science Officer of Pulse Biosciences, explains NPS pulses and the unique effect these nanosecond pulses have on cells as compared to longer pulse technologies. He describes how this can influence cell functions such as secretion, protein targeting and signal pathways such as apoptosis.

 

 


Pulse Biosciences uses nanosecond pulses to trigger apoptosis in cells


Dr. Stephen Beebe, Professor at the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics at Old Dominion University, describes how he got involved in using pulsed electric fields in cell signaling and how these nanosecond pulses induce apoptosis in cells
 

 


Pulse Biosciences explains how nanopores are created in cells.


Dr. Tom Vernier, Professor at the Frank Reidy Research Center for Bioelectrics at Old Dominion University, describes how nanosecond electric fields create nanopores in cells through the use of one of his simulations.
