  • Fractional integral-like processing in retinal cones reduces noise and improves adaptation 

    Martinecz, Antal; Niitsuma, Mihoko (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-04)
    In the human retina, rod and cone cells detect incoming light with a molecule called rhodopsin. After rhodopsin molecules are activated (by photon impact), these molecules activate the rest of the signalling process for a brief period of time until they are deactivated by a multistage process. First, active rhodopsin is phosphorylated multiple times. Following this, they are further inhibited by the ...
  • Deformable liposomes for skin therapy with human epidermal growth factor: The effect of liposomal surface charge 

    Ternullo, Selenia; Basnet, Purusotam; Holsæter, Ann Mari; Flaten, Gøril Eide; de Weerd, Louis; Skalko-Basnet, Natasa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-07)
    The topical administration of exogenous human epidermal growth factor (hEGF) is a promising approach for improved chronic wound therapy.

  • Estimating treatment prolongation for persistent infections 

    Martinecz, Antal; Abel zur Wiesch, Pia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-09)
    Treatment of infectious diseases is often long and requires patients to take drugs even after they have seemingly recovered. This is because of a phenomenon called persistence, which allows small fractions of the bacterial population to survive treatment despite being genetically susceptible. The surviving subpopulation is often below detection limit and therefore is empirically inaccessible but can ...
  • Mucus-PVPA (mucus Phospholipid Vesicle-based Permeation Assay): An artificial permeability tool for drug screening and formulation development 

    Falavigna, Margherita; Klitgaard, Mette; Brase, Christina; Ternullo, Selenia; Skalko-Basnet, Natasa; Flaten, Gøril Eide (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-26)
    The mucus layer covering all mucosal surfaces in our body is the first barrier encountered by drugs before their potential absorption through epithelial tissues, and could thus affect the drugs’ permeability and their effectiveness. Therefore, it is of key importance to have in vitro permeability models that can mimic this specific environment. For this purpose, the novel mucus phospholipid vesicle-based ...
