Taming Antibiotics
Technology Amphotericin B (AmpB) is a potent antifungal drug but is also highly toxic to mammals. The specificity of its cell killing depends, significantly, on its monomer vs. the aggregate state. Specifically, AmpB aggregates tend to rupture membranes indiscriminately, like detergents, while the corresponding monomers sequester ergosterol (a sterol...

Preparation Method of Nano/Macroporous Bone Tissue Scaffolds for Regenerative Medicine
SUMMARY In the field of tissue engineering, one of the most important primary goals is the development of scaffold structure that would help repair damaged or diseased tissue to its original state. Material selection is an essential parameter for the bioscaffold. Additionally, the geometrical architecture of the bioscaffold is very important. Bioactive...
