Currently carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a widely used technique for the treatment of carotid artery stenosis. However, some patients with restenosis following CAS have been reported, resulting in potential clinical problems. The purpose of this study was to investigate the hemodynamic changes before and after CAS to find the factors that may influence(More)
In an effort to improve drug design and predictions for pharmacokinetics (PK), an empirical model was developed to predict the activation energies (Ea) of cytochrome P450 (CYP450) mediated metabolism. The model, EaMEAD (Activation energy of Metabolism reactions with Effective Atomic Descriptors), predicts the Ea of four major metabolic reactions of the(More)
The solvation free energy density (SFED) model was modified to extend its applicability and predictability. The parametrization process was performed with a large, diverse set of solvation free energies that included highly polar and ionic molecules. The mean absolute error for 1200 solvation free energies of the 379 neutral molecules in 9 organic solvents(More)
Computational fluid dynamics simulations can provide important hemodynamic insights for investigating the effectiveness of carotid artery stenting, but its accuracy is dependent on the boundary conditions such as the outflow pressure, which is difficult to obtain by measurements. Many computational fluid dynamics simulations assume that the outflow pressure(More)
Flow-diverting stents occlude aneurysms by diverting the blood flow from entering the aneurysm sac. Their effectiveness is determined by the thrombus formation rate, which depends greatly on stent design. The aim of this study was to provide a general framework for efficient stent design using design optimization methods, with a focus on stent hemodynamics(More)
This work is a novel attempt to incorporate computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques in the analysis of hemodynamic parameters of Moyamoya disease (MMD). Highly prevalent in Asian countries, MMD is characterised by progressive occlusion of the intracranial Internal Carotid Arteries (ICA). We intend to identify a reliable hemodynamic parameter that can(More)
This study investigated the influence of Ni doping and thermal treatment (600, 800 degrees and 1000 degrees C) on the physiochemical properties of a commercially available low cost KA100 TiO2. Ni containing KA100 samples were prepared with different loading of Ni (3%, 6% and 9% wt to KA100) and subjected to heat treatement at 600 degrees, 800 degrees and(More)
