This study investigated the applicability of synthesized calcium peroxide (CaO2) nanoparticles for naphthalene bioremediation by permeable reactive barrier (PRB) from groundwater. According to the batch experiments the application of 400 mg/L of CaO2 nanoparticles was the optimum concentration for naphthalene (20 mg/L)...

Biological systems are exquisitely sensitive to the location and timing of physiologic cues and drugs. This spatiotemporal sensitivity presents opportunities for developing new therapeutic approaches. Polymer-based delivery systems are used extensively for attaining localized, sustained release of bioactive molecules. However...

A significant number of lower extremity fractures result in mal-union necessitating effective treatments to restore ambulation. Prior research in diabetic animal fracture models demonstrated improved healing following local insulin application to the fracture site and indicated that local insulin therapy...
