Hepatocarcinogenesis increases with age and is enhanced by factors that impose a demand for liver regeneration. Because alcohol is hepatotoxic, habitual alcohol ingestion evokes a recurrent demand for hepatic regeneration. The(More)
The high energy ball milling technique permits production of composite powders suitable for application in thermal spray processes. Different milling systems are compared concerning their potential for production of composite powder feedstock for spraying processes. Hard phase materials like carbides or oxides are incorporated into various metallic matrices(More)
