Microfluidic Apparatus For Respirometry

Executive Summary Cellular respiration is a set of metabolic processes responsible for the conversion of chemical energy in all aerobic organisms. In animal and plant cells this takes place in the mitochondria where food is broken down to CO2 and strongly reducing compounds. Energy released upon oxidation of the latter by molecular oxygen via a chain...

Antibacterial Silicate Glass-Ceramic Filament for 3D Printing Bone Materials

INTRODUCTION The use of 3D printed porous scaffolds provides a multi-dimensional template that closely mimics the native structure of bone. This is beneficial for creating ideal conditions for bone tissue regeneration. Silicate bioactive glass-ceramics are inherently bioconductive and bioinductive, making them ideal for tissue regeneration. DESCRIPTION...

Therapeutic for Tissue Healing and Resistive Bacteria

INTRODUCTION Healing infected tissue and combating resistant bacteria are significant clinical challenges. Antibiotic-based therapies are increasingly unsuccessful due to the ability of pathogens to develop resistance. Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), for example, is a leading cause of many infections, including skin and soft tissue...

Surface TSPO in blood cells: Biomarker of peripheral and brain inflammation

INTRODUCTIONTranslocator Protein 18kDa (TSPO) is a nuclear encoded outer mitochondrial membrane protein that is ubiquitously expressed by most host cells. Initially, TSPO was a diazepam target, but it has also been referred to as an ‘orphan protein searching for a function’. Since the generation of these knockouts, TSPO has been determined...

Small Molecule Inhibitors For The Treatment Of Proteinopathies

INTRODUCTIONProtein aggregation that leads to plaque formation is a contributor in many degenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Type 2 diabetes, and other amyloidosis diseases. Once these plaques are formed, they are extremely difficult to degrade. Breakdown and even inhibition of oligomers before formation of these plaques...

Tunable Luminescent Organic Salts for Enhanced Imaging and Photodynamic Therapy

Executive Summary:Theranostic nanomedicine, the medical application of nanobiotechnology, is an emerging area of cancer research. These nanosystems are capable of diagnosing, curing, or preventing diseases. One example of theranostic nanomedicine is photodynamic therapy which uses photosensitizing agents with light to kill cancer cells. However, a major...

Flexible ECoG Electrode Array

Executive SummaryScaling ECoG arrays to whole-brain arrays or higher channel count with an intracranial chip is an area of active research, crucial to brain-machine interfaces that may define future technological advances. One barrier to scaling ECoG recording systems to high channel count (more precise and localized data) is the need for DC offset...

Immunomodulation Strategy for Enhancing Memory T Lymphocyte Immune Responses

IntroductionCytotoxic T cells (T cells) are a type of immune cell that provide immunological protection by destroying cells that are perceived as abnormal. T cell exhaustion or inhibition is often observed in patients with chronic viral infections or cancer, resulting in a decreased ability of the patient to overcome such diseases. One strategy to enhance...
