  • Non-invasive biomedical patch sensor to measure intracranial pressure 

    Griffith, Jacob L.; Wakim, Andre A.; Moore-Jansen, Peer H.; Cluff, Kim (IEEE, 2016)
    This study was focused on the development of a non-invasive mobile skin sensor for measuring intracranial pressure (ICP). Current techniques are limited to surgical implantations or methods that require highly specialized ...
  • Nanostructured self assembled monolayers on magnesium for improved biological performance 

    Mahapatro, Anil; Negron, Taina D. Matos; Gomes, Anosh (Taylor & Francis LTD, 2016)
    Magnesium (Mg) and its alloys are being extensively investigated for its use as a biodegradable metallic implant material. Surface modification strategies are critical for Mg to be able to address application-specific ...
  • An evaluation of the state of neuromuscular blockade monitoring devices 

    Hund, Hannah Christine; Rice, Mark John; Ehrenfeld, Jesse (Springer International Publishing, 2016-12)
    A core element of anesthesia care is the use of intravenous muscle relaxants. While neuromuscular blockade (NMB) monitoring devices assess the degree of patient paralysis, few clinically convenient monitors exist. The lack ...
  • Determination of yolk contamination in liquid egg white using Raman spectroscopy 

    Cluff, Kim; Naganathan, Govindarajan Konda; Jonnalagada, D.; Mortensen, I.; Wehling, R.; Subbiah, J. (Oxford University Press, 2016-07)
    Purified egg white is an important ingredient in a number of baked and confectionary foods because of its foaming properties. However, yolk contamination in amounts as low as 0.01% can impede the foaming ability of egg ...
  • Bio-functional nano-coatings on metallic biomaterials 

    Mahapatro, Anil (Elsevier B.V., 2015-10-01)
    Metals and their alloys have been widely used in all aspects of science, engineering and medicine. Metals in biomedical devices are used due to their inertness and structural functions. They are generally preferred over ...
  • Mathematical modeling of the electrodeposition process 

    Mahapatro, Anil; Suggu, Santosh Kumar (Electrochemical Society, 2014-05-11)
    Electroplating or electrodeposition is a process which produces a dense, uniform and adherent coating on a metal surface using electric current in an electrolytic cell. This process is mainly used to change the surface ...
  • Chapter 11 -- Biodegradable carrier systems for drug and vaccine delivery 

    Mahapatro, Anil; Singh, Dinesh K. (River Publishers, 2015-04)
    Understanding the molecular mechanisms of cancer is the key for transforming cancer medicine. A substantial proportion of human genes show alternative splicing and mis-regulation of Pre-mRNA splicing is seen in several ...
  • Abnormal myofiber morphology and limb dysfunction in claudication 

    Koutakis, Panagiotis; Myers, Sara A.; Cluff, Kim; Ha, Duy M.; Haynatzki, Gleb; McComb, Rodney D.; Uchida, Koji; Miserlis, Dimitrios; Papoutsi, Evlampia; Johanning, Jason M.; Casale, George P.; Pipinos, Iraklis I. (Elsevier B.V., 2015-06-01)
    Background: Peripheral artery disease (PAD), which affects an estimated 27 million people in Europe and North America, is caused by atherosclerotic plaques that limit blood flow to the legs. Chronic, repeatedischemiainthe ...
  • Spectroscopic evaluations of interfacial oxidative stability of phosphonic nanocoatings on magnesium 

    Mahapatro, Anil; Negron, Taina D. Matos; Nguyen, Alan (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2015)
    Magnesium (Mg), and its alloys, is being investigated for its potential biomedical applications for its use as a biodegradable metal. However surface modification strategies are needed to modify the surface of the Mg alloy ...
  • Microscopic bio-corrosion evaluations of magnesium surfaces in static and dynamic conditions 

    Bontrager, Jordan; Mahapatro, Anil; Gomes, Anosh (John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2014-08)
    Biodegradable materials including biodegradable metals are continuously being investigated for the development of next generation cardiovascular stents. Predictive in vitro tests are needed that could evaluate potential ...

    Mahapatro, Anil; Negron, Taina D. Matos (American Chemical Society, 2013-11-22)
    Microwave heating has been gaining interest as an alternative green energy source. Similarly enzymatic assisted polymer chemistry has been gaining interest for its use as a green catalyst. However, microwave (MW) assisted ...
  • Ambient atmospheric stability of organic thin films on metal alloys 

    Mahapatro, Anil; Bhure, Rahul; Abdel-Fattah, Tarek M. (Electrochemical Society, 2012)
    Organic thin films on biometallic alloys could serve as a precursor layer for subsequent tailored modification. In this report we demonstrate the preliminary ambient atmospheric stability of phosphonic acid organic thins ...
  • Morphometric analysis of gastrocnemius muscle biopsies from patients with peripheral arterial disease: objective grading of muscle degeneration
