AIM Resistance of cancer cells to hyperthermic temperatures and spatial limitations of nanoparticle-induced hyperthermia necessitates the identification of effective combination treatments that can enhance the efficacy of this treatment. Here we show that novel polypeptide-based degradable plasmonic matrices can be employed for simultaneous administration(More)
Approximately 1.5 million people suffer from colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease in the United States. Occurrence of leakage following standard surgical anastomosis in intestinal and colorectal surgery is common and can cause infection leading to life-threatening consequences. In this report, we demonstrate that plasmonic nanocomposites,(More)
BACKGROUND The reliability of deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap reconstruction following abdominal liposuction is controversial. The authors' early cases were technically successful; however, they experienced high partial flap loss and fat necrosis rates. The authors sought to compare DIEP flap outcomes in the setting of prior(More)
Genetically engineered elastin-like polypeptides (ELP) can be interfaced with cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB)-stabilized gold nanorods (GNRs) resulting in the formation of stable dispersions (nanoassemblies). Increasing the dispersion temperature beyond the ELP transition temperature results in phase separation and formation of solid-phase ELP-GNR(More)
Venous thromboembolism (VTE), a disease that includes deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), is associated with high mortality, morbidity, and costs. It can result in long-term complications that include postthrombotic syndrome (PTS) adding to its morbidity. VTE affects 1/1000 patients, costs $13.5 billion annually to treat, and claims(More)
