Introduction: Covid-19, alongside previous pandemics, has highlighted the need for the continued development of technologies that are at our disposal. Emerging technologies are those that show true promise in achieving such a goal and have begun to form sturdy independent research areas. Technological advances in healthcare must continually develop...

Introduction: Sustainability within the pharmaceutical industry is becoming a focal point for many companies, to improve the longevity and social perception of the industry. Both additive manufacturing (AM) and microfluidics (MFs) are continuously progressing, so are far from their optimisation in terms of sustainability; hence it's the aim of this...

Salmonella is a global health threat with pig production being one of the main sources of human salmonellosis. The current study investigated the antivirulence properties of geraniol for inhibiting the in vitro colonization of Salmonella. The minimum inhibitory (MIC) and bactericidal concentrations (MBC) of geraniol against Salmonella Typhimurium f...

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is the progressive increase in mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) (≥ 20 mmHg at rest). Current treatment strategies include the drugs targeting at nitric oxide pathway, endothelin receptors, prostaglandin receptors, thromboxane receptors and phosphodiesterase inhibitors, which provides the symptomatic reli...

In conventional drug administration, drug molecules cross multiple biological barriers, distribute randomly in the tissues, and can release insufficient concentrations at the desired pathological site. Controlling the delivery of the molecules can increase the concentration of the drug in the desired location, leading to improved efficacy, and redu...
Article
The encapsulation of biologic molecules using a microfluidic platform is a procedure that has been understudied but shows great promise from initial reported studies. The study focusses upon the encapsulation of bovine serum albumin (BSA) under various parameters and using multiple phospholipids to identify optimal conditions for the manufacturing...

Microfluidic technique has emerged as a promising tool for the production of stable and monodispersed nanoparticles (NPs). In particular, this work focuses on liposome production by microfluidics and on factors involved in determining liposome characteristics. Traditional fabrication techniques for microfluidic devices suffer from several disadvant...

The implementation of peptide-based molecules within the medical field has vast potential, owing to their unique nature and predictable physicochemical profiles. However, peptide ther-apeutic usage is hindered by delivery-related challenges, meaning that their formulations must be altered to overcome these limitations. This process could be propell...
