Polyelectrolyte Complexes (PEC) for Promoting Wound Healing and Hair Growth
The pictures show the progression of hair growth around the wound from day 21. Both PEC film groups show signs of hair growth as early as day 21. The hair growth is primarily localized to the skin area that was under the PEC film during treatment.
Common complications of diabetes include chronic, non-healing wounds of...

In Vitro Model of Liver Steatosis for Screening of Drug Compounds
The decrease in liver steatosis in hepatocytes cultured in steatosis reducing medium.
Donor livers are frequently rejected due to high intracellular fat content, called steatosis, which increases the risk of primary graft non-function in transplant patients. Because liver transplantation remains the only effective treatment for...
