Metody dydaktyczne:

Lecture: informative lecture


Laboratory classes: students (2-3 persons in a team) have to perform the analyses according to the obtained protocol. The experiments have to be conducted in aseptic conditions therefore lab groups should be as small as possible (max. 8-10 persons).

Skrócony opis:

The lecture presents selected issues from the field of cytotoxic influence of different compounds on the cytophysiological processes as well as methods and regulations in the cytotoxicity evaluation.

Laboratory classes will make students familiar with the methods of cells selection and preparation for cytotoxicity analyses and with commonly used cytotoxicity tests. Based on the analyzes and experiments performed, students will identify the effects of cytotoxic influence.

Pełny opis:

Lecture:

1. Basics of in vitro cell culture.

2. Morphological and metabolic changes after exposure to cytotoxic agents.

3. Disorders in cell cycle, genotoxicity and inflammatory responses.

4. Cellular senescence and death.

5. Viability, toxicity and survival – nature of cytotoxicity assays.

6. The national and international standards and regulations in cytotoxicity evaluation (e.g. ISO 10993).

Laboratory classes:

1. Cell isolation and culture for cytotoxic analyses.

2. Tests assessing cell metabolism and membranes function.

3. Integrity of cell membrane as an important parameter in cytotoxicity assays.

4. Oxidative stress damage. Determination of reactive oxygen species.

5. Cellular senescence assays.

6. DNA damage and genotoxicity.

7. Experiment summary and final test.

Literatura:

There is not a single academic book, which covers the whole subject content. Lectures and instructions for laboratory classes will be the basis for the preparation to the final tests. Some of the issues can be found in the following books:

1. Stokłosowa S. „Hodowla komórek i tkanek” (PWN, Warszawa 2011)

2. Freshney R. I. „Culture of Animal Cells: A Manual of Basic Technique” (Wiley, Nowy Jork 2005)

3. Kilarski W. „Strukturalne podstawy biologii komórki” (Wydawnictwo Naukowe PWN, Warszawa 2003)

4. Kawiak J. „Seminaria z cytofizjologii dla studentów medycyny, weterynarii i biologii” (Elsevier Urban&Partner, Wrocław 2002)
