Elastin Targeted Drug Delivery for Treating Elastin Degenerative Diseases (2012-048)
This targeted drug delivery approach uses micro-sized drug carriers with elastin antibodies that recognize, attach, and deliver compounds to prevent enzymatic degradation of elastin in diseased tissue. Enzymatic degradation of elastin tissue is the primary cause of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). CO...

Method and Material to Extend the Life of Total Joint Replacements through Wear Particle Activation
More than 500,000 joint replacements occur in the US each year and demand for joint replacements will grow an estimated 175 percent for total hip replacements and six-fold for total knee replacements by 2030 (CDC report “Health United States 2009”). These replacements typically last about 10 years or more, but as the patients live long...
