Oral delivery is the most attractive drug administration route due to many specific advantages. Ease of administration, large and diverse absorption surface area, applicability for solid formulations, patients’ compliance, and intensified immune response due to mucosal effects are usually...
pH-Indicating Colorimetric Hydrogel for Wound Dressing and Medical Grade Silicone Adhesive for Skin Electronics: Towards Multifunctional Bionic Skin PatchDownload
The physiological milieu of the normal skin is slightly acidic with a pH value ranged between 4 and 6; for chronic or infected wounds with a higher bacterial load, its pH value is above 7.3. Motivated by the fact that monitoring the pH value is an effective way to monitor the status of the wound,...
Intracellular pH was monitored at the cytosolic surface of plasma membrane solute transporters (Na+/H+/nucleoside co-transporters, or Cl-/HCO3- exchangers), using pH-sensitive fluorescent proteins (FPs), dual emission green FP (deGFP4) and a monomeric red FP Nectarine (mNect), whose development...
Understanding the ecology of microorganisms is essential for optimizing aquaponics systems. Effects of pH and inoculum on ammonium removal and dynamics of microbial community composition from all compartments of lab-scale aquaponics systems were examined. Initial ammonium accumulation in systems...
Optical transport networks are critical infrastructures which carry huge amounts of great traffic variety but are inevitably subject to laser diode failures, fiber cuts and sometimes node outages. The concept of p-cycles is very attractive and competitive in the domain of network survivability...
Optical transport network failures are destructive, costly and inevitable. Therefore, extensive work has been conducted on survivable network designs. Survivable network designs are primarily built around network span failures, and a common approach for improving network resilience against span...
Presented as a written form of visiting, this thesis draws from nîhiyaw pimâtisowin (Cree life and worldview) to share learning through and with beadwork. Utilizing Indigenous research methodologies, research-creation, storytelling and autoethnography, this work explores beadwork to develop an...
