Administration of Nootropic Agents for Enhancing Neuroprotective Signaling in Parkinson’s Disease
BackgroundParkinson’s Disease (PD) is a chronic, neurodegenerative disease, caused by the progressive loss of midbrain dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra, which sends axons to the striatum. Approximately 1% of Americans are afflicted with PD, which give rise to more than $14 billion in medical-related costs each year. Symptoms include i...

Use of in vivo Microbial Antigen Detection (InMAD) with human biological fluids for detection of circulating antigens
BackgroundDiagnosis of an infection in a timely manner is essential for proper therapeutic administration and more effective treatments, especially for diseases with non-specific early symptoms. Acute infections are typically diagnosed by identifying microbial antigens directly from patient samples. However, microbes do not replicate to high levels...

Bone Fixation Device and Tension-Wire Method
Background: This is a bone fixation device using new technology in order to help the healing of mandible fractures. The tension-wire method (TWM) is a method by which unstable mandible fractures can be reduced and fixated without the use of metal plates. Previous methods of fixation of bones, such as surgery and intermaxillary fixation, prove to be...

Bioceramic Coated Implants
Background: Medical implants are vital in many lives because they replace missing body parts and the functions that come along with them. To avoid rejection by the host, the implants must be composed or coated in bioceramic materials. Many of the current methods to achieve this have several disadvantages, such as, micro-cracks, phase changes due t...
