The spreading of trypsinized XTH-2 cells (a line derived from Xenopus laevis tadpole heart endothelia) on glass was investigated. Three phases can be distinguished: (1) blebbing of rounded cells, first attachment to a solid substratum and formation of a broad smooth contact area; (2) organization of a peripheral zone of actin fibrils and reinforcement of(More)
Biodegradable particulate systems have been considered as parenteral drug delivery systems. The adsorption of plasma proteins on micro- and nanoparticles is determined by the surface properties and may, in turn, strongly influence the biocompatibility and biodistribution of both carriers. In the present study the influence of the polymer composition and the(More)
There is growing interest in applying glass as an interposer substrate for 2.5D/3D as well as component substrates for radio frequency (RF) applications. The list of important advantages provided by glass in these applications include material properties (e.g. electrical performance, ability to adjust coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) to improve(More)
Plasma protein adsorption patterns on colloidal drug carriers acquired after i.v. administration depend on their surface characteristics and are regarded as key factors for their in vivo organ distribution. Polymeric latex particles with strongly differing surface properties were synthesized as models for colloidal drug carriers for tissue-specific drug(More)
Plasma protein adsorption on intravenously injectable drug carriers is regarded as an important factor for the fate of the particles in the body after their administration. Therefore, the plasma protein adsorption patterns on a number of different carrier systems were analyzed in vitro employing two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE). The particulate(More)
The in vivo organ distribution of i.v. injected drug carriers is strongly influenced by the adsorption of plasma proteins after i.v. injection, e.g. uptake by the mononuclear phagocytic system (MPS). 2-D PAGE could be established to analyze plasma protein adsorption patterns on polysaccharide-stabilized aqueous iron oxide dispersions used as contrast agents(More)
Structured lipids (1,3-specific triglycerides) are new chemical entities made by enzymatic transesterification of the fatty acids in the 1,3-positions of the triglyceride. The purpose of this study was to investigate the in vitro interaction of fat emulsions based on either structured lipids or vegetable oils with human plasma proteins employing(More)
The interactions of intravenously injected drug carriers with blood proteins are considered as an important factor for the fate of the particles after their administration. Protein adsorption on latex particles applied as model for intravenous drug carriers was analysed using two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE). The particles were incubated in citrated(More)
