A surgical micro-robot that swims inside the human ureter is proposed to provide a novel and minimally invasive method of kidney stone destruction. Inspired by the swimming mechanisms of bacteria such as E. coli, the robot utilizes biomimetic synthetic flagella composed of multiwalled carbon nanotubes that are driven into a rotating helical shape by a micro(More)
The aim of the present study was to characterize the population pharmacokinetics of ciprofloxacin in patients with and without cystic fibrosis ranging in age from 1 day to 24 years and to propose a limited sampling strategy to estimate individual pharmacokinetic parameters. Patients were divided into four groups according to the treatment schedule. They(More)
Current data on mycophenolate mofetil (MMF) suggest that there is a pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationship between the mycophenolic acid (MPA) area under the curve (AUC) during treatment and both the risk of acute rejection and the occurrence of side effects. The aim of this study was to characterize the population pharmacokinetics of MPA in kidney(More)
This study aimed to evaluate the protection granted by a simple device (X'TENS(®), Thiebaud, France) and to provide operators with information on the performance of this new device, which has not yet been assessed. Our assumption is that this device efficiently reduces the radiation dose to the operator. In a prospective clinical study, the radiation dose(More)
Basic IC fabrication techniques are employed in this paper with the purpose of designing a micro-fluidic device with a 3D electrode arrangement to separate live and dead biological cells. This is done using the concept of dielectrophoresis, which describes the transnational motion of particles due to the application of a non-uniform electrical field. The(More)
