Characterization of T-lymphocyte-target cell adhesion using a parallel plate flow chamber
A 100 fold range of shear stress (.04-4 dynes/cm$\sp2$) was used to demonstrate that the level of shear used in conjugate enumeration assays affects the absolute magnitude of CTL-TC conjugates observed. Kinetic analysis ...
Development of ocular drug delivery systems using biodegradable polymers
The delivery of drugs plays an important role in the treatment of ocular diseases. In this thesis, biocompatible, biodegradable materials such as poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF) and poly(lactic-co-glycolic) (PLGA) were used ...
Enzymatic digestion of the lens as an alternative to cataract surgery
The purpose of this research was to determine the effects of enzymatic digestion on the human lens, with the ultimate goal of rendering cataract surgery obsolete. A system for measuring the consistency of a lens, using an ...
