Platelet interactions with subendothelial surfaces under physiological shear conditions: Response to type VI collagen and an endothelial cell wound model
The elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of platelet adhesion and aggregation in response to naturally occurring subendothelial surfaces under flow conditions is important medically in atherosclerosis and mural thrombosis. ...
Macromolecular permeability of endothelial cells subjected to biochemical and mechanical stimuli
Endothelial cells line all of the vessels of the circulatory system, providing a non-thrombogenic conduit and form the principal barrier to the transport of substances between the blood and the surrounding tissue. The ...
Effect of fluid rheology of hole cleaning in highly-deviated wells
One of the technical challenges in deviated drilling is the transport of drill bit cuttings to the surface. The complexity arises due to the narrow settling clearance for the cuttings and the presence of a cuttings bed on ...
