Nickel free, built-in nanotubular drug eluting stents

AoS. Ni-free, built-in nanotubular drug eluting stents

Coronary Artery Disease is a common cause of heart failure. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is caused by the accumulation of lipids and fats within an injured arteries’ walls and restricts the blood flow to the heart muscle

Molecular defense adopted by sea urchin embryos to cope with Nickel

Molecular defense adopted by sea urchin embryos to cope with Nickel

Nickel (Ni) is a natural constituent of the Earth’s crust and, together with its compounds, it is used in many industrial and commercial applications. At very low doses, Ni carries out many physiological roles in biochemical processes

Biophysical modulation of lipid model membranes by cobalt and nickel

Cobalt (Co) and Nickel (Ni) are important industrial metals used in the manufacture of a variety of everyday products. Additionally, Co is an essential trace element for humans, involved in the structure and function of vitamin B12.

Fatigue and torsional resistance of controlled memory and conventional nickel-titanium endodontic instruments

The endodontic field encountered an important breakthrough with the introduction of the nitinol alloy. It offers special mechanical properties like a shape memory effect and superelasticity. Despite of the particular properties of NiTi instruments, they could suffer

A novel approach to characterizing the type of three-factorial combined toxicity

We carried out an experiment in which outbred white rats were subjected to repeated injections with water solutions of either one of the toxics (Mn, Ni or Cr salts) in doses isoeffective in respect to the lethal
