The application of polymeric materials in medical industry has grown drastically in the last two decades due to their various advantages compared to existing materials. The present research work empha...
This letter presents accelerated physical aging of polystyrene (PS) blocks in polystyrene-block-poly(methyl methacrylate) (PS-b-PMMA) diblock copolymers under hard confinement. The three-dimensional h...
Microplastics are major pollutants in marine environment and may have health effects on aquatic organisms. In this study, we used two sizes (5 and 50 μm diameter) of fluorescent and virgin polystyr...
Preparation of polymer-silica colloidal nanocomposite particles with concave shape is challenging and seldom reported. This paper presents a novel and facile method to prepare dimpled polymer-silica n...
3D scaffolds represent an attractive substrate for studying macrophage activation and modification since they mimic extracellular matrix (ECM). However, macrophage response to such materials, particul...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether spherical silica can achieve similar or greater extrinsic dental stain and plaque removal, in comparison to dentifrices containing higher ...
The aim of the present study was to determine whether oral dosing, up to 9 grams/day, of porous silica administered as a food additive can be used safely in normal weight and obese male hu...
OBJECTIVES: I. Establish the sodium and potassium intake that will maintain a normovolemic state in a patient with pseudohypoaldosteronism. II. Determine the effect of extracellular flu...
The overall objective of this study is to investigate the glycemic response of a 0%, 50%, 100% and 150% bolus insulin correction (based on personal insulin correction factor) of post-exerc...
The purpose of this study is to analyse if the alignment of the stem and the number of complications of the new resorbable PEGT/PBT centralizer are comparable to the standard PMMA central...
A non-crystalline form of silicon oxide that has absorptive properties. It is commonly used as a desiccating agent and as a stationary phase for CHROMATOGRAPHY. The fully hydrated form of silica gel has distinct properties and is referred to as SILICIC ACID.
Exuberant inflammatory response towards previously undiagnosed or incubating opportunistic pathogens. It is frequently seen in AIDS patients following HAART.
A member of the CXC chemokine family that plays a role in the regulation of the acute inflammatory response. It is secreted by variety of cell types and induces CHEMOTAXIS of NEUTROPHILS and other inflammatory cells.
A systemic inflammatory response to a variety of clinical insults, characterized by two or more of the following conditions: (1) fever >38 degrees C or HYPOTHERMIA <36 degrees C; (2) TACHYCARDIA >90 beat/minute; (3) tachypnea >24 breaths/minute; (4) LEUKOCYTOSIS >12,000 cells/cubic mm or 10% immature forms. While usually related to infection, SIRS can also be associated with noninfectious insults such as TRAUMA; BURNS; or PANCREATITIS. If infection is involved, a patient with SIRS is said to have SEPSIS.
The study of speech or language disorders and their diagnosis and correction.
