Manuela Russu, Adriana Ghelmene, Daniela Degeratu, Serban Nastasia; Recurrent non- gestational primary breast abscess due to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection. Case Study. Advanced Nano-Bio-Materials and Devices; 2020:4(2):586-602

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, […]

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 […]

Oleksiy Kuda, Olena Sych, Nataliia Pinchuk, Oleksandr Bykov, Olena Olifan, Yan Evych, Liudmyla Kuzmenko. Structure and properties of hydroxyapatite biocomposites doped nano-sized diamond particles; Advanced Nano-Bio-Materials and Devices; 2020:4(2):574-579

In the present work the effect of doping 1% nano-sized diamond particles on the structure and properties of biocomposites (sintered at 500 and 780 ºC on air) based on biogenic hydroxyapatite and sodium silicate glass were investigated. Volume and mass shrinkages of composites after sintering, their phase composition, microstructure, porosity, mechanical and bioactivity properties were studied. […]
