We employ simple geometrical rules to design a set of nanotopographies able to interfere with focal adhesion establishment during neuronal differentiation. Exploiting nanoimprint lithography techniques on cyclic-olefin-copolymer films, we demonstrate that by varying a single topographical parameter the orientation and maturation of focal adhesions can be(More)
A fingerprint is reproduction of a finger tip epidermis structure, produced when a finger is pressed against a smooth surface. Fingerprint identification is laid on these foundations: (i) persistence: the basic characteristics of fingerprints do not change with time; and (ii) individuality: the fingerprint of every individual is scientifically proved to be(More)
BACKGROUND Ropivacaine, a newer local anesthetic, is gaining increased acceptance due to its improved safety profile over bupivacaine and lignocaine. Analgesic adjuvants have proved to be valuable in improving the quality of anesthesia and duration of analgesia. AIM To compare the efficacy of clonidine and fentanyl as adjuvants to ropivacaine in spinal(More)
