Breast is a rare location for Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MbT) infection. The paper analyses the first registered case with MBT location in a young Romanian women: a chronic primary TB breast abscess, non-pregnancy related, with periods of apparent healing and repeated areolar fistula formation. Incidence, risk factors, hypothetic mechanisms of primary / secondary breast MbT infection, […]

Liviu POPA-SIMIL; How a sick Smith’s/Kroger grocery shop employee may put in jeopardy >50 customers in a single day; Advanced Nano-Bio-Materials and Devices; 2020:4(2):561-573

Some places are very sensitive to pandemic mass transmission, where a contagious person can easily infect over 50 persons in only 2 minutes of exposure. Facing this pandemic, infrastructure is prone to cascading if appropriate protection measures are not implemented in advance. The novel COVID-19 has some features that put it in the class of […]

COVID-19 is a virus with its dimensions of about 100 nm when is in its spherical shape, had proven remarkable features as a nano-bot with displacement capabilities performed by spikes, a protein shield, and inside a genetic code, programmed to hack the cells and uses to reproduce itself. Duet to its shield and affinity for […]

Homa Shahram, Somayeh Taghian Dinani; The impacts of pH and pectinase enzyme concentration on phenolic compound extraction of orange waste using an electrohydrodynamic (EHD) – enzymatic procedure; Advanced Nano-Bio-Materials and Devices; 2020:4(1):528-540

Orange waste, a by-product of orange juice factories, has considerable amounts of phenolic and antioxidant compounds. In this research, the combination of Electrohydrodynamic (EHD) and enzymatic processes was examined to extract phenolic compounds from orange waste powder (OWP). To achieve this goal, the influence of pH (at 4, 4.5, 4.8, 5, 5.5 and 6 levels) […]

The novel properties of nanomaterials also encourage their use to improve the growth of different tissues. Nano structured ceramics can be synthesized; thus, they may have particle size, geometry and microarchitecture similar to physiological bone. In this study, mechanical and bioactivity properties of nanohydroxyapatite (nHA)-nano magnesium oxide (nMgO) and nano hydroxyapatite (nHA) -nano niobium (V) […]

Hong HUANG, Cai-Ping TAO, Yu-Kun WANG, Li-Zhong SU, Jin-Ju GUAN, Ju-Fang ZHENG, Xiao-Shun ZHOU, Bin ZHENG. Electrochemical Behavior of Uric Acid on L-cysteine Modified Au (111) Electrode in Different pH Solution, Advanced Nano-Bio-Materials and Devices; 2019:3(4):514-520

In this work, we have investigated the self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of L-cysteine on Au(111) and its application in electrochemical oxidation of uric acid by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), cyclic voltammetry (CV) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV). Monolayer of L-cysteine on Au(111) was observed, which shows that single monolayer of L-cysteine was formed on Au(111). Oxidation […]

Sergey V. DOROZHKIN, Nanometric calcium orthophosphates (CaPO4): preparation, properties and biomedical applications, Advanced Nano-Bio-Materials and Devices; 2019:3(4):422-513

Nanometric particles and crystals play very important roles in biological systems. For example, calcium orthophosphates (abbreviated as CaPO4) of nanometric dimensions represent the basic inorganic building blocks of bones and teeth of mammals. According to recent discoveries in biomineralization, zillions nanometric crystals of biologically formed CaPO4 are nucleated in body fluids and, afterwards, they are […]
