Optimization of tumor-imaging and therapeutic potential of near-infrared multifunctional agents, and targeted polyacrylamide theranostic nanoplatforms
The goal of this work was to modify the structural parameters of porphyrin-based agents to optimize their imaging and/or therapeutic potential. In order to achieve our goal, certain chlorins and bacteriochlorins were ...
Impact of cognitive function and dysarthria on spoken language and perceived speech severity in multiple sclerosis
Purpose : The current study sought to investigate the separate effects of dysarthria and cognitive status on global speech timing, speech hesitation, and linguistic complexity characteristics and how these speech behaviors ...
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 ...
Photoelastic stress analysis of mandibular canine distalization via different retraction methods
Objective: The purpose of this research is to evaluate the biomechanics of canine retraction for eight unique retraction methods via optical photoelastic stress analysis. Rationale: Extraction of a first premolar is common ...
