The Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer's Network Trials Unit (DIAN-TU) was formed to direct the design and management of interventional therapeutic trials of international DIAN and autosomal dominant Alzheimer's disease (ADAD) participants. The goal of the DIAN-TU is to implement safe trials that have the highest likelihood of success while advancing scientific(More)
The design and use of materials in the nanoscale size range for addressing medical and health-related issues continues to receive increasing interest. Research in nanomedicine spans a multitude of areas, including drug delivery, vaccine development, antibacterial, diagnosis and imaging tools, wearable devices, implants, high-throughput screening platforms,(More)
In this review, an overview of the current state-of-the-art of gold-based nanomaterials (Au NPs) in medical applications is given. The unique properties of Au NPs, such as their tunable size, shape, and surface characteristics, optical properties, biocompatibility, low cytotoxicity, high stability, and multifunctionality potential, among others, make them(More)
A novel protocol for the copper-catalysed S-arylation of thiophenol derivatives with aryl halides leading to diaryl sulfides is reported. The reactions were catalysed by a combination of a copper salt and a 1,2-diamine derivative (acting both as the ligand and as the base) using exclusively water as the solvent. The recovery and successful reutilisation of(More)
Novel dibenzo[a,c]phenanthridines are prepared regioselectively by the application of a straightforward synthetic pathway, starting from new 3,4-diaryl- and 3,4-dihydro-3,4-diarylisoquinolines prepared via Ritter-type heterocyclization and the more classical two-step reductive amination/Bischler-Napieralski cyclization of triarylethanones, respectively. A(More)
Due to the importance of functionalized arenes as scaffolds in applied organic materials and biologically relevant molecules, metal-catalyzed cross-couplings have gained significant attention in recent years. Among themUllmann type C X bond formations are particularly attractive because they often allow the use of low-cost starting materials in combination(More)
[reaction: see text] A more sustainable protocol leading to 2-alkyl- or 2-aryl-substituted benzo[b]furans is reported, involving a copper-TMEDA complex which catalyzes the transformation of readily available ketone derivatives into the corresponding benzofurans in good to excellent yields. The reaction is accomplished using water as the solvent without(More)
