We developed a thermoswitchable polymeric photosensitizer (T-PPS) by conjugating PS (Pheophorbide-a, PPb-a) to a temperature-responsive polymer backbone of biocompatible hydroxypropyl cellulose. Self-quenched PS molecules linked in close proximity by π-π stacking in T-PPS were easily transited to an active monomeric state by the temperature-induced phase(More)
The aim of this research is the development of a new type of intra-articularly injectable thermo-sensitive hydrogels for the long-term delivery of Piroxicam (PX). The thermo-sensitive hydrogel was prepared by the simple physical mixing of HA and Pluronic F-127 (HP) in aqueous solution. The addition of high-molecular-weight HA not only enhanced the(More)
The objective of this study is to estimate multiple-cycles of the soil-water characteristic curve (SWCC) using an innovative volumetric pressure plate extractor (VPPE), which is incorporated with a membrane and time domain reflectometry (TDR). The pressure cell includes the membrane to reduce the experimental time and the TDR probe to automatically estimate(More)
The clinical applications of etanercept (Enbrel), an emerging therapeutic protein for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), are limited by its instability and low bioavailability. In this study, a long-term and efficient therapeutic nanocomplex formulation for RA treatment was developed in the form of a temperature-modulated noncovalent interaction controllable (TMN)(More)
