Dimensionality reduction is usually involved in the domains of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Linear projection of features is of particular interest for dimensionality reduction since it is simple to calculate and analytically analyze. In this paper, we propose an essentially linear projection technique, called locality-preserved maximum(More)
The purpose of this study was to synthesize and characterize biodegradable and thermosensitive triblock copolymers for delivering protein at controlled rate in biologically active form for longer duration of time. A series of thermosensitive triblock copolymers with different block lengths (PLGA-PEG-PLGA) were synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of(More)
During an investigation of antitumor substances from Nigella glandulifera Freyn et Sint. (Ranunculaceae) the cytotoxicity of two oleanane triterpene saponins isolated from the seeds of this species, kalopanaxsaponins A and I, was evaluated against HepG2, drug resistant HepG2 (R-HepG2) (two hepatocyte cell lines) and primary cultured normal mouse(More)
Chromatographic fingerprinting has been widely accepted as a crucial method for qualitative and quantitative analyses of bioactives within traditional Chinese medicine. A fingerprint provides detailed information, specific for any given herb, thus facilitating the quality control measures of a given traditional Chinese medicine. In this article, quality(More)
Synthetic chemical drugs, while being efficacious in the clinical management of many diseases, are often associated with undesirable side effects in patients. It is now clear that the need of therapeutic intervention in many clinical conditions cannot be satisfactorily met by synthetic chemical drugs. Since the research and development of new chemical drugs(More)
Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine (TCHM) contain multiple botanicals, each of which contains many compounds that may be relevant to the medicine's putative activity. Therefore, analytical techniques that look at a suite of compounds, including their respective ratios, provide a more rational approach to the authentication and quality assessment of TCHM.(More)
The objective of this research is to develop injectable polymers solution based controlled release delivery systems for testosterone (TSN), using phase sensitive and thermosensitive polymers. A combination of poly(lactide) (PLA) and solvents mixture of benzyl benzoate (BB) and benzyl alcohol (BA) was used in the phase sensitive polymer delivery system. The(More)
The purpose of this study was to design injectable controlled release polymer formulations for growth hormone using triblock copolymer PLGA-PEG-PLGA (MW 1400-1000-1400). Porcine growth hormone (pGH) formulations were prepared by adding pGH into 30% (w/v) aqueous solution of triblock copolymer. pGH concentrations in the released samples were determined using(More)
The objective of this research is to develop injectable controlled delivery systems for the contraceptive hormone, levonorgestrel (LNG), using phase sensitive and thermosensitive polymers. A combination of poly (lactide) (PLA) and a solvent mixture of benzyl benzoate (BB) and benzyl alcohol (BA) was used in the phase-sensitive polymer delivery systems. The(More)
