To predict the responses to chemotherapy, we performed a phase II trial of neoadjuvant chemotherapy using a weekly PCb [paclitaxel (Taxol) plus carboplatin] regimen for stage(More)
Nanostructures of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are designed and produced using coadsorption and nanografting techniques. Because the structures of these artificially engineered domains are predesigned and well-characterized, a systematic investigation is possible to study the mechanical responses to force modulation under atomic force microscope tips.(More)
