Drug Delivery Systems in Hard Tissue Engineering

Grigore ME1,2*
This paper provides an overview on some of the currently used systems for drug delivery systems with application for hard tissue engineering reported in literature in the last 5 years. These systems have received an increased attention in the last years especially because of their unique properties like antimicrobial or anticancer activity. Also, these systems are continuously studied for the improvement of the therapeutic...

Nanoscience in the Antibiotics Sphere

Bera S*
The dawn of the antibiotic-era was started with the world’s revolutionary invention of Penicillin in the 1940s by the world-leading Scottish scientists, physician, microbiologist, pharmacologist and botanist, Sir Alexander Fleming. After few years, in 1945, for the discovery of penicillin and its curative effect in various infectious diseases, the Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine was awarded jointly to Sir Alexander Fleming,...

Advancements in Free-Radical Pathologies and an Important Treatment Solution with a Free-Radical Inhibitor

Petersen RC*, Reddy MS and Liu P-R
Unsaturated carbon-carbon double bonds particularly at exposed end groups of nonsolid fluids are susceptible to free-radical covalent bonding on one carbon atom creating a new free radical on the opposite carbon atom. Subsequent reactive secondary sequence free-radical polymerization can then continue across extensive carbon-carbon...

Polymeric Hydrogels for Therapeutic Delivery

Wenwen Huang*
The primary goal in developing therapeutic delivery systems is to improve the stability of therapeutic agents against chemical/enzymatic degradation, while prolong, localize, enhance drug efficacy and minimize side effects [1]. For these purposes, a variety of polymeric based drug delivery systems including nanoparticles [2], micelles [3], conjugates [4], nanofibers [5], microneedles [6], nanogels [7] and hydrogels [8]...
