Glass Physics and Chemistry
The glass-ceramic composites were prepared from low-softening glass CaO–B2O3–SiO2, micrometer and nanometer alumina. The influences of nano-Al2O3 on the sinterability, microstructure, dielectric property, mechanical strength, and thermal expansion of glass-alumina composites were investigated. The densification mechanism of nano-Al2O3 modified glas...
Expert opinion on drug delivery
Ultimately, the choice between micro- and nanometer-sized delivery systems is not straightforward. However, if the fundamental differences in physical and chemical properties are considered, it can be much easier to make a rational choice of the appropriate drug delivery system size.

The nano-bone gelatin won't lead to delayed union of fractures and may be beneficial to it, and so may be an ideal gelatin for fixing small fractures.

This paper proposes a transmit/receive (T/R) nanoswitch in 130 nm CMOS technology for 2.4 GHz ISM band transceivers. It exhibits 1.03-dB insertion loss, 27.57-dB isolation and a power handling capacity (P1 dB) of 36.2-dBm. It dissipates only 6.87 μW power for 1.8/0 V control voltages and is capable of switching in 416.61 ps. Besides insertion loss ...
•The genomes of six brucellaphages in five of the six typing groups were sequenced.•Comparisons were made of these six new genomes and two previously sequenced.•High sequence identity was observed across brucellaphages of differing origin.•Differences were in tail fiber, DNA polymerase, major head and phage collar genes.•These variable loci may be ...

Background and aimsTreatment of inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) is only aimed to block or inhibit the pathogenetic steps of the inflammatory cascade. Side effects of systemic therapies, poor targeting of orally administered topical drug and low adherence to prescription represent frequent therapeutic challenges. Recent observations suggest that n...
F.W.R. Brambell deduced the existence of a protective receptor for IgG, the neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn), long before its discovery in the early to mid-1990s. With the coincident, explosive development of IgG-based drugs, FcRn became a popular target for tuning the pharmacokinetics of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). One aspect of Brambell's initial ob...
UnlabelledVascular endothelial growth factor A (referred to as VEGF) is implicated in colon cancer growth. Currently, the main accepted mechanism by which VEGF promotes colon cancer growth is via the stimulation of angiogenesis, which was originally postulated by late Judah Folkman. However, the cellular source of VEGF in colon cancer tissue; and, ...

A system of standard measuring instruments forming part of a set of standard measures of the height of a step and the value of a period, designed for the three-dimensional calibration of monitoring-measuring equipment based on optical interference and scanning probe microscopes, used for measuring small distances, is considered.
