Liposome-Encapsulated Bacteriophages for Enhanced Oral Phage Therapy against Salmonella spp
The methodology described here allows the liposome encapsulation of phages of different morphologies to be stored for at least 3 months at 4°C and could be added to the drinking water and feed of animals.
New synthetic routes towards MOF production at scale.
An up-to-date survey of the most promising novel synthetic routes, i.e., electrochemical, microwave, mechanochemical, spray drying and flow chemistry synthesis, and the essential topic of downstream processes, especially for large scale synthesis, is critically reviewed.
Microencapsulation with alginate/CaCO3: A strategy for improved phage therapy
It is evidenced that a cocktail of the three alginate/CaCO3-encapsulated bacteriophages had a greater and more durable efficacy than a cocktails of the corresponding non-encapped phages in as therapy in broilers against Salmonella, one of the most common foodborne pathogen.
A nanoporous molecular magnet with reversible solvent-induced mechanical and magnetic properties
MOROF-1 shows a reversible and highly selective solvent-induced 'shrinking–breathing' process involving large volume changes that strongly influence the magnetic properties of the material, which could be the first stage of a new route towards magnetic solvent sensors.
Controlling the shape, orientation, and linkage of carbon nanotube features with nano affinity templates
A parallel assembly process that allows one to simultaneously position, shape, and link SWNTs with sub-100-nm resolution is demonstrated and a mathematical relationship describing the geometrically weighted interactions betweenSWNTs and the two different SAMs required to overcome solvent–SWNT interactions and effect assembly is provided.
Use of Autoantigen-Loaded Phosphatidylserine-Liposomes to Arrest Autoimmunity in Type 1 Diabetes
This innovative immunotherapy arrests the autoimmune aggression, reduces the severity of insulitis and prevents type 1 diabetes by apoptotic mimicry is concluded to constitute a promising strategy for autoimmune diseases.
A robust nanocontainer based on a pure organic free radical.
A new pure organic paramagnetic porous molecular material, which combines hydrophilic windows with large hydrophobic nanocontainers, is shown to be stable even in absence of solvent guest molecules.
Peripheral administration of human recombinant ApoJ/clusterin modulates brain beta-amyloid levels in APP23 mice
Results demonstrate that an increase in circulating human rApoJ induces a reduction of insoluble Aβ and CAA load in the brain of APP23 mice, and suggests that peripheral interventions, based on treatments with multifunctional physiological chaperones, offer therapeutic opportunities to regulate the cerebral Aβ load.
Old materials with new tricks: multifunctional open-framework materials.
This critical review provides an up-to-date survey to this new generation of multifunctional open-framework solids, classified into five different sections: magnetic, chiral, conducting, optical, and labile open-frameworks for sensing applications.
Metal-biomolecule frameworks (MBioFs).
This feature article highlights the advances in the synthesis of Metal-Biomolecule Frameworks (MBioFs), with special emphasis on the crystal structures of these materials, their miniaturization to the submicron length scale, and their new potential storage, catalytic, and biomedical applications.
