We report a cell-mediated, targeted drug delivery system utilizing polyelectrolyte multilayer capsules that hybridize with the patient's own platelets upon intravenous administration. The hybridized platelets function as the sensor and actuator for targeted drug delivery and controlled release in our system. These capsules are biochemically and mechanically tuned to enable platelet adhesion and capsule rupture upon platelet activation and contraction, enabling the targeted and controlled "burst" release of an encapsulated biotherapeutic...

BACKGROUND: Previous studies have shown no correlation between adhesive capsulitis and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c). However, HbA1c is only a measure of short-term blood sugar control. We created a previously nonvalidated variable, cumulative HbA1c, that uses HbA1c values over time to estimate the total disease burden a single individual experiences over a period. In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether a correlation exists between cumulative HbA1c levels in diabetic patients and the prevalence of frozen shoulder...

BACKGROUND: Addressing preoperative shoulder stiffness before rotator cuff repair (RCR) is advocated, but the effectiveness of this approach is debatable. We hypothesized that 1-stage treatment of concomitant rotator cuff tear (RCT) with shoulder stiffness has comparable results with isolated RCT. METHODS: Following the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) guidelines, the databases including MEDLINE, Embase, Cochrane Library, and Scopus were searched using the keywords of "shoulder stiffness" OR "adhesive capsulitis" OR "frozen shoulder" AND "rotator cuff...

BACKGROUND: Bifidobacterium longum 105-A produces markedly high amounts of capsular polysaccharides (CPS) and exopolysaccharides (EPS) that should play distinct roles in bacterial-host interactions. To identify the biological function of B. longum 105-A CPS/EPS, we carried out an informatics survey of the genome and identified the EPS-encoding genetic locus of B. longum 105-A that is responsible for the production of CPS/EPS. The role of CPS/EPS in the adaptation to gut tract environment and bacteria-gut cell interactions was investigated using the ΔcpsD mutant...

We have proposed a long-term, non-invasive, non-restrictive method of delivering and implanting a biosensor within the body via a swallowable implantation capsule robot (ICR). The design and preliminary validation of the ICR's primary subsystem-the sensor deployment system-is discussed and evidence is provided for major design choices. The purpose of the sensor deployment system is to adhere a small biosensor to the mucosa of the intestine long-term, and the modality was inspired by tapeworms and other organisms that employ a strategy of mechanical adhesion to soft tissue via the combined use of hooks or needles and suckers...

BACKGROUND: Local administration of opioids causes effective analgesia without adverse effects related to the central nervous system. After the beneficial demonstration of peripheral opioid receptors in joint synovia, intra-articular opioid injections were used for pain treatment. Clinical studies have reported the safety and efficacy of hyaluronate injection in the shoulder joint of patients with osteoarthritis, periarthritis, rotator cuff tears, and adhesive capsulitis. OBJECTIVES: To estimate the efficacy of intra-articular hyaluronate and tramadol injection for adhesive capsulitis of the shoulder compared with that of intra-articular hyaluronate injection alone...

Streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus) produces many capsule types that differ in their abilities to evade host immune recognition. To explain these serotype-dependent protective capacities, many studies have investigated capsular thickness or the interaction of the capsule with complement proteins, but the effects of small chemical modifications of the capsule on its function have not been studied. One small chemical modification found frequently among pneumococcal capsules is O-acetylation. Pneumococcal serotype 33A has two membrane-bound O-acetyltransferase genes, wciG and wcjE A 33A wcjE-deficient variant, 33F, occurs naturally and is increasing in prevalence in the wake of widespread conjugate vaccine use, but no wciG-deficient variants have been reported...

Ahmed O Shalash, Mustafa M A Elsayed
The potential of fine excipient materials to improve the performance of carrier-based dry powder inhalation mixtures is well acknowledged. The mechanisms underlying this potential are, however, open to question till date. Elaborate understanding of these mechanisms is a requisite for rational rather than empirical development of ternary dry powder inhalation mixtures. While effects of fine excipient materials on drug adhesion to and detachment from surfaces of carrier particle have been extensively investigated, effects on other processes, such as carrier-drug mixing, capsule/blister/device filling, or aerosolization in inhaler devices, have received little attention...

The elbow joint is highly susceptible to joint contracture, and treating elbow contracture is a challenging clinical problem. Previously, we established an animal model to study elbow contracture that exhibited features similar to the human condition including persistent decreased range of motion (ROM) in flexion-extension and increased capsule thickness/adhesions. The objective of this study was to mechanically quantify pronation-supination in different injury models to determine if significant differences compared to control or contralateral persist long-term in our animal elbow contracture model...

In order to enhance the surface biocompatibility of hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lenses (IOLs), the anterior surface was modified through graft polymerization with methacryloyloxyethyl phosphorylcholine (MPC) initiated by ultraviolet radiation. Chemical changes on the IOL surface were characterised by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) to confirm the covalent binding of MPC. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM) analysis were used to characterise the morphological changes to the IOL surface...
