Three-dimensional reconstruction of blood vessel lumen from a single x-ray projection image
Stroke and heart attack are the leading causes of death and morbidity in developed countries. The underlying cause is the occlusion of blood vessel lumen by atherosclerotic plaque. Vascular intervention is the dominant ...
Techniques for the Enhancement of Optimization Schemes in Radiation Therapy
With the advent of intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), the process of generating a radiotherapy treatment plan has become a complex and time consuming process due to an increase in the number of variables which ...
Permeability of gel phase phospholipid bilayers
The membranes of viable cells are boundaries that control the transit of material into and out of the cell. Pivotal components of these membranes are bilayers of phospholipids with intercalated cholesterol, embedded membrane ...
The Development of Contemporary Antigen Presenting Cell-Targeting Gene Delivery Vectors for the Generation of a New Class of Vaccines
Genetic vaccines offer a treatment opportunity based upon successful gene delivery to specific immune cell modulators. Driving the process is the vector chosen for gene cargo packaging and subsequent delivery to antigen ...
