PURPOSE To establish the population pharmacokinetic (PPK) model of cyclosporine (CsA) in Chinese renal transplant recipients and evaluate the influence of various indexes including CYP3A5 and MDR1 genetic polymorphism on pharmacokinetic parameters. METHODS Trough (C(0)) and peak (C(2)) CsA concentration were monitored conventionally after renal(More)
Mycophenolate Mofetil (MMF) is widely used in preventing acute rejection in liver transplantation. Only free MPA (fMPA) can exert the pharmacological effect. In this study, we aimed to develop the new model which could be best fit to predict the fMPA area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) by limited sampling strategy (LSS) in Chinese liver(More)
The objective of this study is to investigate the correlation between methods of high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and enzyme multiplied immunoassay technology (EMIT) for determination of total mycophenolic acid (tMPA) and free (fMPA) concentration and to study pharmacokinetics of fMPA in Chinese liver transplant recipients. An HPLC method with(More)
Nanostructures with precise control of sizes and shapes, intrinsic read-out signals for tracking, and flexible surface chemistry for bioconjugation can offer an excellent system to study interaction between nanomaterials and cells. In this paper, a new nanobio system based on functionalized silicon nanowires (SiNWs) was developed. Using the intensive and(More)
The integration of 3D-ordered macropores with poly(ionic liquid)s can significantly extend the functions of poly(ionic liquid)s, and afford a new type of material, which can serve as not only tunable photonic crystals and anion-directed molecular gating system, but also as a surface with enhanced tunable wettability and unique stable electro-optic switching.
Corrosion of metal in biomedical devices could cause serious health problems to patients. Currently ceramics coating materials used in metal implants can reduce corrosion to some extent with limitations. Here we proposed graphene as a biocompatible protective film for metal potentially for biomedical application. We confirmed graphene effectively inhibits(More)
BACKGROUND An enzyme multiplied immunoassay technique (EMIT) provides convenient and accurate measurements of mycophenolic acid (MPA) concentrations for determination of immunosuppression during treatment with mycophenolate mofetil (MMF). No abbreviated model for estimating the full 12-hour MPA AUC using an EMIT assay in liver transplant recipients has been(More)
Implantable sensors that detect biomarkers in vivo are critical for early disease diagnostics. Although many colloidal nanomaterials have been developed into optical sensors to detect biomolecules in vitro, their application in vivo as implantable sensors is hindered by potential migration or clearance from the implantation site. One potential solution is(More)
