Polymer blending is a simple yet attractive method to obtain combined physical and mechanical properties of polymers. In this paper, three types of blend hydrogels were prepared, each by physically blending two different natural polymers, and a model drug, theophylline (TPH), was immobilized into these hydrogels for the studies of drug release. The release(More)
Staphylococcus aureus (S. Aureus) is a common food-borne pathogenic microorganism. Biofilm formation remains the major obstruction for bacterial elimination. The study aims at providing a basis for determining S. aureus biofilm formation. 257 clinical samples of S. aureus isolates were identified by routine analysis and multiplex PCR detection and found to(More)
Dry powder inhalers (DPIs) offer distinct advantages as a means of pulmonary drug delivery and have attracted much attention in the field of pharmaceutical science. DPIs commonly contain micronized drug particles which, because of their cohesiveness and strong propensity to aggregate, have poor aerosolization performance. Thus carriers with a larger(More)
