  1. 1. Precipitating Amine Absorption Systems for Carbon Capture

    Author : Hanna Karlsson; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CO2 capture; Non-aqueous; AMP; Solubility; Heat of absorption;

    Abstract : Carbon capture using amine-based absorption is an established technology for the separation of gaseous CO2. It is used in the upgrading of gaseous fuels, and it has also been suggested that it could play a crucial role in the mitigation of climate change through post-combustion carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), and by creating carbon sinks through bioenergy CCS.

  2. 2. Lipid-based liquid crystals as drug delivery vehicles for antimicrobial peptides

    Author : Lukas Boge; Lovisa Ringstad; Martin Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; infection; phase behavior; antimicrobial effect; Liquid crystals; hexosome; antimicrobial resistance; AMP; antimicrobial peptide; pulmonary delivery; topical delivery; glycerol monooleate; bacterial membrane; cubosome; liquid crystalline nanoparticles; membrane interaction; proteolysis;

    Abstract : The development of antimicrobial resistance is a great challenge within health sectors worldwide. Thus, demand for new, efficient treatments is urgent in order to treat various bacterial infections. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a group of antibiotics that have gained more and more attraction in the past decade. READ MORE

    Abstract : The development of antimicrobial resistance is a great challenge within the health sector around the world. The demand for new efficient treatments is alarming in order to treat various bacterial infections in the near future. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a group of novel antibiotics that have gain more and more attraction the past decade. READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel host defence mechanisms during bacterial infections

    Author : Malin Elvén; Lund Dermatologi och venereologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ApoE; Complement System; TFPI-2; Antimicrobial peptides; AMP; Immunolgobulins; endotoxins; Staphylococcus aureus; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Escheria coli;

    Abstract : The immune system has evolved through thousands of years and its architecture has challenged the medical field since the first hieroglyphs and will likely continue do so. With our co-evolution with millions of other species, the complexity to treat infectious diseases has been a race in increasing speed ever since. READ MORE

  5. 5. Novel Endogenous Antimicrobial Peptides

    Author : Emma Nordahl; Lund Dermatologi och venereologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; D5; HK; C3a; HMWK; complement; heparin-binding; antibacterial; Antimicrbial peptide; AMP;

    Abstract : Antimicrobial peptides serve as a first line of defence against invading microorganisms and are an essential part of our fast innate immune system. They are ancient molecules found in all classes of life. Antimicrobial peptides rapidly kill a broad spectrum of microbes and are immunomodulatory, i.e. READ MORE
