Biomimetic Microcrystalline Formulations for Lung Macrophage-Targeted Anti-Inflammatory Drug Delivery
6544 – Targeted drug delivery for chronic and acute pulmonary conditions is currently one of the biggest challenges in the pharmaceutical industry, but has great potential to rapidly improve the outcomes for one of the largest segments of patients once solved. The World Health Organization estimates that ~15% of the world’s population may suffer from lung disease, making it one of the biggest causes... Read More
Smart dental composite material utilizing thiol–ene polymerization mechanism to reduce resin shrinkage.
6131 – According to the U.S Census Bureau, in 2010 nearly 36 million people age of 65 and over lived in the United States, accounting for just over 12% of the total population. Oral diseases and conditions are common among these Americans who grew up without the benefit of community water fluoridation and other fluoride products. The older population in 2030 is projected to be twice as large as in... Read More
4174 – Biocompatible Coatings for Cardiovascular Medical Devices This technology increases the biocompatibility for medical devices used in cardiovascular medicine such as artificial heart valves, vascular grafts, and catheters. This coating, which via catalysis generates antithrombotic nitric oxide from endogenous sources, reduces the activation of platelets and therefore reduces the risk of blood... Read More
5278 – Nanotechnologies use nanoscale features to measure and manipulate molecules at the molecular scale and as such promise to yield improved diagnostic, therapeutic, pharmaceutical, and industrial technologies. One of the fastest growing nanotechnologies involves the use of gold nanoparticles. In addition to increasing the color quality and bacteria resistance of paints, gold nanoparticles... Read More
4229 – Biomaterials play pivotal roles in engineering tissue regeneration and repair. To fabricate an entire organ or a large piece of tissue for transplantation, a predesigned scaffold with the patient-specific anatomy is required. However, there are often irregular shaped defects and wounds that need to be filled and repaired in clinics. In such cases, fluid-like injectable materials are... Read More
