N-palmitoyl-N-monomethyl-N,N-dimethyl-N,N,N-trimethyl-6-O-glycolchitosan (GCPQ) is a self-assembling polymer, which enables the oral bioavailability of peptide and hydrophobic drugs. In preparation for clinical testing, here we examine GCPQ's synthesis reproducibility, pKa, thermal, and rheological properties. GCPQ was synthesised by acid degradation of(More)
BACKGROUND The LifeSite Hemodialysis Access System is a subcutaneous access device designed to maximize blood flow while minimizing access-related complications. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy and safety of the LifeSite System to a similar but transcutaneous access device, the Tesio-Cath Hemodialysis Catheter. METHODS The study was(More)
Here we examine the mechanisms by which nanoparticles enable the oral absorption of water-insoluble, P-glycoprotein efflux pump (P-gp) substrates, without recourse to P-gp inhibitors. Both 200nm paclitaxel N-(2-phenoxyacetyl)-6-O-glycolchitosan (GCPh) nanoparticles (GCPh-PTX) and a simulated Taxol formulation, facilitate drug dissolution in biorelevant(More)
PURPOSE To compare the performance and safety of a fully subcutaneous vascular access device, the LifeSite hemodialysis access system, versus a tunneled hemodialysis catheter, the Tesio-Cath, at 1 year after implantation. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-eight patients who required hemodialysis received implantation of the LifeSite device or a Tesio-Cath(More)
PURPOSE To assess the efficacy and safety of placing the tip of the internal jugular (IJ) hemodialysis catheter in the inferior vena cava (IVC) in situations where it does not work well when placed in the right atrium. METHODS The medical records of chronic hemodialysis patients at an outpatient vascular intervention facility were retrospectively(More)
There are numerous pharmaceutical, food, and consumer product applications requiring the incorporation of hydrophobic solutes within aqueous media. Often amphiphiles and/or polymers are used to produce encapsulating nanostructures. Because the encapsulation efficiencies of these nanostructures directly impact on the process or product, it is often desirable(More)
INTRODUCTION Retrograde arterial dissection is a recognized complication of endovascular intervention but has not been well reported especially in the context of dialysis arteriovenous access procedures. The management of this complication is also not well defined. CASE PRESENTATION We report the case of an 80-year-old female with end-stage renal disease(More)
