Surfactants are common stabilizers, often added to biopharmaceuticals formulations, but the mechanisms at the basis of their activity are unclear. The aim of this work is to provide insight into the molecular factors underlying surfactant effectiveness as protectants.

Some surfactants can enhance the removal of phenol by laccase (Lac) in various industrial effluents. Their behavior and function in the biodegradation of phenolic wastewater have been experimentally r...
Organic or inorganic stabilizers are often used for coating nanoparticles (NPs) in consumer products. However, upon release of stabilized NPs into the environment, uncertainty exists as to the antimic...
Biopharmaceuticals are often stored in a lyophilized form. However, stresses due to both the freezing and the drying steps of the lyophilization process can be harmful to protein stability, and approp...
Surfactants are ubiquitous in cellular membranes, detergents or as emulsification agents. Due to their amphiphilic properties, they can not only mediate between two domains of very different solvent c...
Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a chronic inflammatory arthritis of unknown etiology, and currently the cellular and molecular interactions that dictate its pathogenesis remain elusive. A role of the int...
The purpose of this study is to understand the changes in skin microflora, skin barrier function, and skin biochemical constituents in response to direct contact with model surfactants use...
The primary objectives of this study are to identify positivity rates to three novel surfactants (ingredients used in soaps, detergents, and other cleansers that serve to lower the surface...
This study will provide mechanistic insight into the underlying causes and molecular level pathogenesis of periodontal diseases. We will identify key mechanisms that confer risk and protec...
In children with chronic kidney disease, progression to end-stage renal failure is associated with high patient morbidity and poor quality of life. In adults, inhibition of the renin angio...
This is a molecular imaging research study designed to examine how much nicotine gets into the brain before and after vaccination with NicVAX, a nicotine vaccine developed by Nabi Biopharm...
A class of drugs producing both physiological and psychological effects through a variety of mechanisms. They can be divided into "specific" agents, e.g., affecting an identifiable molecular mechanism unique to target cells bearing receptors for that agent, and "nonspecific" agents, those producing effects on different target cells and acting by diverse molecular mechanisms. Those with nonspecific mechanisms are generally further classed according to whether they produce behavioral depression or stimulation. Those with specific mechanisms are classed by locus of action or specific therapeutic use. (From Gilman AG, et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p252)
The molecular designing of drugs for specific purposes (such as DNA-binding, enzyme inhibition, anti-cancer efficacy, etc.) based on knowledge of molecular properties such as activity of functional groups, molecular geometry, and electronic structure, and also on information cataloged on analogous molecules. Drug design is generally computer-assisted molecular modeling and does not include pharmacokinetics, dosage analysis, or drug administration analysis.
Polymeric materials (usually organic) of large molecular weight which can be shaped by flow. Plastic usually refers to the final product with fillers, plasticizers, pigments, and stabilizers included (versus the resin, the homogeneous polymeric starting material). (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
High molecular weight polysaccharides present in the cell walls of all plants. Pectins cement cell walls together. They are used as emulsifiers and stabilizers in the food industry. They have been tried for a variety of therapeutic uses including as antidiarrheals, where they are now generally considered ineffective, and in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia.
Pharmacological activities at the molecular level of DRUGS and other exogenous compounds that are used to treat DISEASES and affect normal BIOCHEMISTRY.
