In this study, the effects of the addition of various polysaccharides (konjac gum, gellan gum, and curdlan gum) on the rheological and textural properties of calcium sulfate-induced soy protein isolate gels were investigated. The incorporation of konjac gum and curdlan gum at 0.3 and 0.5% (w/v) concentrations and gellan gum at 0.5% concentration significantly enhanced (P

Transmission electron microscope (TEM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) images reveal that the samples have hollow structures with double shells of UC layer and magnetic layer. N2 adsorption/ desorption isotherm analysis shows the samples have ...

BooneAbstractX-ray Fluorescence Computed Tomography (XFCT) is an emerging imaging technique that provides elemental distribution in objects non-invasively. To predict and optimize the experimental outcome of XFCT, data generated by Monte Carlo (MC) simulation is usually used. However, MC codes typically require extended computing times to generate sufficient data. In this paper, we report an XFCT simulation method based on analytical computat...

In this study, AA loading PEGylated nanostructured lipid carriers (P-AA-NLC) were prepared. P-AA-NLC were characterized for particle size distribution, polydispersity index, entrapment efficiency, X-ray powder diffraction pattern (XRD), differential scanning colorimeter (DSC) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The intestinal absorption, in vivo distribution, pharmacokinetics and anti-fibrosis effects of P-AA-NLC were studied compared with that of AA-NLC. In situ single-pass intestinal perfusion model shown that there are significant differences in absorption between the free and NLCs formulation. The Peff values o...

CairaAbstractA crystal engineering approach combined with experimental screening methods was employed as a preformulation step for producing expectedly useful forms of a novel antimalarial drug lead (MMV652103). In previous experiments, this drug lead had shown promise both in vitro and in vivo against the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. Various new forms of MMV652103 were produced earlier, including co-crystals, a salt, polymorphs and a hydrated form a...

Conclusions: We confirmed the increased risk of ML in patients with large colorectal lesions. A significant number of advanced ML was removed at the first LtFU colonoscopy, probably it should be carried out earlier than currently recommended. PMID: 31821050 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
