  3. 3. Design of solid dosage forms for mucosal vaccination - Investigations on the influence of excipients on product performance

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Annika Borde; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mucosal vaccination; sublingual vaccine tablet; mucoadhesion; osmotic pressure; hydrophilic matrix tablets; Bradford Assay; protein release; Vibrio cholerae; freeze-drying;

    Abstract : Most vaccines today are liquid formulations for parental administration. However, there are several drawbacks connected to these vaccines. Since injectable vaccines only induce systemic antibody responses, they are not effective against the various pathogens that affect mucosal surfaces with poor permeability for serum-derived antibodies, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prediction of Medical Device Usability Problems and Use Errors - An Improved Analytical Methodical Approach

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Lars-Ola Bligård; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2007]

    Abstract : The use of acupuncture in the area of reproductive medicine is relatively new, and it has been rather poorly investigated in the past. When muscle afferents are stimulated by acupuncture in somatic segments related to the innervation of the ovaries and the uterus, functional changes occur in the neural substrate that may influence reproductive function and result in peripheral, segmental and central effects.
