    Dendrimers are a class of highly branched synthetic polymers that form spherical macromolecules that can be reliably synthesized to a specific physical size in a highly reproducible manner. Dendrimers of different generations are chemically related to each other, allowing the study of molecular size without the interfering variable of different chemical structures. View full abstract»

    One of the major challenges in drug delivery is to provide an appropriate dosage of therapeutic agents at the right time to the right location. The therapeutic agents include small molecules, macromolecules, nanoparticles, and cells, whose sizes range from less than 0.5 nm to 20 mum. Major noninvasive routes of administration include oral, pulmonary, and transdermal drug delivery. Transport barrie... View full abstract»

    Successful therapeutic outcomes following the administration of drugs, including small molecules and large biomolecules, require not only the selection of a proper drug but also its delivery to the proper site of action, with proper temporal presentation. Drug delivery is an extremely broad area of research, as each molecule presents its own absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and tox... View full abstract»

    The purpose of this article is to review the different strategies for the delivery of plasmid DNA (pDNA)-based gene therapy. Plasmids are extrachromosomal DNA capable of being transmitted from cell to cell. They are supercoiled, circular covalently closed (ccc) strands of DNA capable of replication independently of host DNA and ranging from 5 to 400 kilo base pairs (kb) in size, depending on the s...

    Both field-confined skin electroporation and microscissioning offer minimally invasive methods for delivering drugs across skin and nail with minimal sensation. Both methods create high permeability pathways in a pain-free manner. These openings are similar in dimension to commonly experienced scratches and nicks on the skin. These localized openings provide pathways for sustained delivery of drug... View full abstract»

    Although ultrasound-based drug delivery has only seen limited clinical use for transdermal drug delivery, there has been considerable momentum in research aimed at using ultrasound for a wide variety of medical applications. Ultrasound-mediated gene therapy using sonoporation and targeted delivery has progressed from in vitro proof-of-concept studies to produce biological effects in angiogenesis a... View full abstract»

    The outbreak of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) in 2003 has ignited studies and research (and even the general public interest) in the field of infrared (IR) imaging systems for blind mass human fever screening to control the spread of the pandemic. The ideal device for blind mass fever screening should be speedy, noninvasive, and able to accurately detect people with fever. IR thermo... View full abstract»

    As the old adage goes: Build a better mouse trap and the world will beat a path to your door. This is literally what happened to Agrizap, Inc., a small company in the rodent control business. As is also well known, protecting your turf once you have built the better mouse trap is no easy task. The recent case of Agrizap v. Woodstream from the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) shows j... View full abstract»

    To gain control over the cellular environment for the study and manipulation of biological systems, it is important to understand the signals and stimuli that provoke cellular mechanisms. Techniques for the perturbation and analysis at the single-cell resolution are crucial for understanding the behavior and mechanisms within the cellular environment. Thus, there is a need for the development of a... View full abstract»
