Near-infrared (NIR) light-triggered release from polymeric capsules could make a major impact on biological research by enabling remote and spatiotemporal control over the release of encapsulated cargo. The few existing mechanisms for NIR-triggered release have not been widely applied because they require custom synthesis of designer polymers, high-powered… (More)
BACKGROUND Conventional suction-assisted lipectomy (SAL) often results in contour irregularity. Selective photothermal heating of adipose tissue by polymer-coated gold nanorods energized by an external near-infrared exposure at 800 nm is introduced in this work to facilitate fat removal. METHODS The effects of NanoLipo were examined in food-grade porcine… (More)
BACKGROUND Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the most common adult leukemia in the western population. Although genetic factors are considered to contribute to CLL etiology, at present genomic aberrations identified in CLL are limited compared with those identified in other types of leukemia, which raises the question of the degree of genetic influence… (More)
The paper deals with the goal of automatically identifying artefacts while analyzing EEG in man. Methods for making up standard artefacts are proposed on the basis of the cluster analysis and detection algorithms for artefacts in EEG film processing in real time.
