Poorly water-soluble drugs comprise the majority of new drug molecules. Nanoparticle agglomerates, called NanoClusters, can increase the dissolution rate of poorly soluble compounds by increasing particle surface area. Budesonide and danazol, two poorly soluble steroids, were studied as model compounds. NanoCluster suspensions were made using a Netzsch(More)
Hyaluronic acid (HA) has emerged as a versatile polymer for drug delivery. Multiple commercial products utilize HA, it can be obtained in a variety of molecular weights, and it offers chemical handles for cross-linkers, drugs, or imaging agents. Previous studies have investigated multiple administration routes, but the absorption, biodistribution, and(More)
Antibiotic multiresistant pneumonia is a risk associated with long-term mechanical ventilation. Vancomycin is commonly prescribed for methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections; however, current formulations of vancomycin are only given intravenously. High doses of vancomycin have been associated with severe renal toxicity. In this study, we(More)
Interaction of a predesigned molecular "clip" (4) with rigid dipyridyl bridging ligands, in acetone/water mixtures, leads to the formation of molecular rectangles (5-8) in 92-97% isolated yields via spontaneous self-assembly. Characterization was accomplished with multinuclear NMR and UV-vis spectroscopy, FAB mass spectrometry, and X-ray crystallography.(More)
GPS is successfully used for spacecraft navigation in low Earth orbits. This paper investigates the feasibility of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receivers for spacecraft navigation in GEO, GTO, and higher orbits. The study is based on the experience gained at EADS Astrium from developing GNSS receivers for satellites as well as the requirements(More)
A family of nanoscale-sized supramolecular cage compounds with a trigonal prismatic framework was prepared by means of spontaneous self-assembly from the combination of a predesigned molecular "clip" with tritopic pyridyl subunits. As confirmed by x-ray crystallography, the smallest structure of the reported series is approximately 1 x 2 nm and possesses a(More)
The further development of navigation receivers has to go hand in hand with the advances in the constellations for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). As more and more features will be provided by the services of modernized GPS, GLONASS and the upcoming Galileo and COMPASS, the functions and performance of spaceborne GNSS receivers have to be(More)
Antigen-specific immunotherapy has been used to hyposensitize patients to allergens and offers an enticing approach for attenuating autoimmune diseases. Applying antigen-specific immunotherapy to mucosal surfaces such as the lungs may engage unique immune response pathways to improve efficacy. Pulmonary delivery of soluble antigen arrays (SAgAs) was(More)
