Options of therapeutic drug monitoring

Diagnosis of drowning Diatom test is still a key to set up the diagnosis of drowning. The golden standard is the diatom test, which relies on detection of algae from the internal organs of the victim.
Sevevarl confounding factors might affect the result of diatom testing. We set up experiments to investigate the effect of diatom containing foodstuff.

To answer questions about the vitality and time course of wounds and injuries has always been a delicate and controversial task of the forensic pathologists. Several studies exist in the literature concerning the histological ageestimation of skin wounds, of myocardial infarction, or of venousthrombosis However, the healing processes for the different “suffering anatomical subjects” of the inflicted closed-head trauma, i.e. skin, scalp, meninges and brain itself cannot be fully described with the same pattern considering the plethora of factors from circulatory redistribution, ranging from blood supply till the influence of iatrogenic effects (such as anticoagulants or neurosurgical interventions).

Nevertheless, when searching the literature for histological age estimation of subdural haemorrhages/ haematomas (SDH), the resulting few papers illustrate the limited available information in this field.

Based on the collection of the highest possible number of autopsy samples and circumstantial/clinical data, to establish a reliable diagnostic and assessment tool for the daily work of forensic pathologists. We aim to set up an algorithmic decision scheme for practising forensic experts. To support the daily routine tasks of forensic pathologists, the ultimate aim is to make the foundations for a comprehensive forensic pathohistology atlas of injuries. To date, no such title exists in the literature.

The aim of this topic is to study the relations between anatomy and forensic sciences, with a specific attention to high-tech. As further goals we would like to discover new, innovative ideas in education and in science.

PACAP (pituitary adenylate-cyclase activating polipeptide) is a neuropeptide with well-known neuroprotective and cytoprotective effects. The aim of our research is to investigate the role of PACAP as a biomarker in violent deaths.
