Templated Polymer Replica Nanoparticles to Facilitate Assessment of Material-Dependent Pharmacokinetics and Biodistribution
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2017-10-04)
Surface modification is frequently used to tailor the interactions of nanoparticles with biological systems. In many cases, the chemical nature of the treatments employed to modify the biological interface (for example ...
Layer-by-Layer Polymer Coating on Discrete Particles of Cubic Lyotropic Liquid Crystalline Dispersions (Cubosomes)
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2013-10-22)
Cubic phase lyotropic liquid crystalline colloidal dispersions (cubosomes) were surface-modified with seven polyelectrolyte layers using a layer-by-layer (LbL) approach. The first layer consisted of a copolymer synthesized ...
Bridging Bio-Nano Science and Cancer Nanomedicine
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2017-10-01)
The interface of bio-nano science and cancer medicine is an area experiencing much progress but also beset with controversy. Core concepts of the field-e.g., the enhanced permeability and retention (EPR) effect, tumor ...
Casein Kinase 1 delta/epsilon Inhibitor, PF670462 Attenuates the Fibrogenic Effects of Transforming Growth Factor-beta in Pulmonary Fibrosis
(FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2018-07-10)
Transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-β) is a major mediator of fibrotic diseases, including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). However, therapeutic global inhibition of TGF-β is limited by unwanted immunosuppression and ...
Feasibility of Nitrogen Doped Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Microelectrodes for Electrophysiological Recording From Neural Tissue.
Neural prostheses that can monitor the physiological state of a subject are becoming clinically viable through improvements in the capacity to record from neural tissue. However, a significant limitation of current devices ...
Influence of Ionic Strength on the Deposition of Metal-Phenolic Networks
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2017-10-10)
Metal-phenolic networks (MPNs) are a versatile class of self-assembled materials that are able to form functional thin films on various substrates with potential applications in areas including drug delivery and catalysis. ...
Low-Fouling and Biodegradable Protein-Based Particles for Thrombus Imaging
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 2018-07-01)
Nanomedicine holds great promise for vascular disease diagnosis and specific therapy, yet rapid sequestration by the mononuclear phagocytic system limits the efficacy of particle-based agents. The use of low-fouling polymers, ...
