Traditional antibacterial photocatalysts are primarily induced by ultraviolet light to elicit antibacterial reactive oxygen species. New generation visible-light responsive photocatalysts were discovered, offering greater opportunity to use photocatalysts as disinfectants in our living environment. Recently, we found that visible-light responsive...

Multi-walled carbon nanotube grafted Pt nanoparticles via nitrogen atom (MWCNT-N-Pt) has chemically synthesized and characterized as an efficient oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalysts. Structural and morphological properties of the electrocatalyst have characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy...

We recently reported that peritumoral CpG-ODN treatment, activating TLR-9 expressing cells in tumor microenvironment, induces modulation of genes involved in DNA repair and sensitizes cancer cells to DNA-damaging cisplatin treatment. Here, we investigated whether this treatment induces modulation of miRNAs...

Left untreated, paralytic lagophthalmos may result in corneal dryness, ulcerations, and subsequent blindness. The most common nondynamic surgical solution is upper eyelid weight placement in a superficial, pretarsal pocket, carrying the risk of visibility, extrusion, and entropion. The authors present...
