At the end of the 2023 Padua Days of Muscle and Mobility Medicine the next year's meeting was scheduled from 27 February to 2 March 2024 (2024Pdm3). During the summer and autumn the program was confirmed with Scientific Sessions that will take place over five days, starting in the afternoon of February 27, 2024 at the Conference Room of the Hotel Petrarca, Thermae of Euganean Hills (Padua), Italy. As usual, the next day will be spent in Padua, in this occasion at the San Luca Hall of the Santa Giustina monastery in Prato della Valle, Padua, Italy. Collected during Autumn 2023, many more titles and abstracts than expected were submitted, forcing the organization of parallel sessions both on March 1 and March 2 2024 confirming attractiveness of the 2024 Pdm3. The five days will include oral presentations of scientists and clinicians from Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Switzerland, UK and USA. Together with the preliminary Program at December 1, 2023, the early submitted Abstracts is e-published in this Issue 33 (4) 2023 of the European Journal of Translational Myology (EJTM). You are invited to join, submitting your Last Minute Abstracts to ugo.carraro@unipd.it by February 1, 2024. Furthermore, with the more generous deadline of May 20, 2024, submit please “Communications” to the European Journal of Translational Myology (Clarivate’s ESCI Impact factor 2.2; SCOPUS Cite Score: 3.2). See you soon at the Hotel Petrarca in Montegrotto Terme, Padua, on February 27, 2024, but the complete program can be followed from home via zoom connection.

  • Reconstruction, neurotization and artificial synaptogenesis of ablated skeletal muscle
  • Analyses in muscle atrophy and apoptosis of role of Cytokines and Myokines by invasive and non-invasive samplings

 

Achievments and expertises

Prof. Ugo Carraro is a world-class leader in molecular and structural analyses of skeletal muscle. He developed bi-dimensional gel electrophoresis for myosin light chains, in particular the embryonic isoform, and was the first to separate human myosin heavy chain isoforms.

He discovered the long-term potential of denervated muscle to survive denervation by non-compensatory myofiber regeneration.

Prof. Carraro was Associate Professor of General Pathology at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Padova, from 1983 to 2013. Editor-in-Chief of The European Journal of Translational Myology since 1991, he founded and chaired from 2005 to 2011 Interdepartmental Research Center of Myology (CIR-Myo) of the University of Padova. CIR-Myo continue to join scientists and clinicians of the Departments of Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Neuroscience, Medicine and Surgical Sciences, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Experimental & Clinical Veterinary Sciences.

In collaboration with international partners, in particular the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Electrostimulation and Physical Rehabilitation of the Wilheminenspital, Vienna, Austria, CIR-Myo scientists and clinicians developed and implemented the expertise and facilities to maintain and extend in Interreg IVa a world-unique BIO-BANK of human skeletal muscle biopsies harvested from upper motor neuron and lower motor neuron denervated patients and related animal research, young and senior sportsmen, healthy and diseased elderly persons before and during recovery by new therapies and rehabilitation strategies. In particular, muscle biopsies were harvested from patients affected with spinal cord injury and severe leg trauma, osteoarthropathies and rheumatic autoimmune diseases, and cancer.

CIR-Myo is developing also new imaging methods for functional monitoring of human skeletal muscles from patients suffering with permanent and transient muscle denervation. The collaboration with the Dr. Kern’s Vienna Group resulted in new knowledge and clinical validation of rehabilitation strategies for permanently denervated human muscles using home-based Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES). Thus, a world unique human muscle biopsies DATA-BASE of structural and molecular data obtained by histology, histo- and immuno-chemistry, electron microscopy and genomic/proteomic approaches is available to compare new rehabilitation strategies against standard clinical methods.

Carraro’s Lab matured expertises working on different aspects of muscle biology and pathology, including spinal cord injuries, aging, apoptosis, and muscle regeneration. This full set of methods and expertise are uniquely present at the CIR-Myo of Padova University, and well documented by a list of original results published in leading Journals of the different research fields.

Now Professor Carraro is validating NON-INVASIVE BLOOD ANALYSES to monitor Cytokines (anti- and pro- Inflammatory) and Myokines by saliva and sweat samplings, a very promising approach that will increase acceptability of sampling by volunteering persons and frequency of sampling, a key factor to evaluate the many very transient effects of trainings and rehabilitations in early aging and aging.
