Bioinspired microstructures of chitosan hydrogel provide enhanced wear protection
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018-02-16)
We describe the fabrication of physical chitosan hydrogels exhibiting a layered structure. This bilayered structure, as shown by SEM and confocal microscopy, is composed of a thin dense superficial zone (SZ), covering a ...
Insiders, smart drugs et pharmaceuticalisation : éléments pour une typologie de la nouvelle déviance conformiste
(Département de sociologie de l’Université du Québec à Montréal & Athéna éditions, 2016)
La multiplication des usagers et usagères des smart drugs sur les campus universitaires, des go-pills dans l’armée ou encore des coast-to-coast chez les camionneurs de longue distance invite à revisiter la légitimité ...
Resistance and mutations of non-specificity in the field of anxietydepressive disorders in Canadian medical journals, 1950-1990
Pharmaceuticalisation is a complex phenomenon, co-constitutive of what scholars identify as a pharmaceutical regime, comprised of networks of actors, institutions and artefacts as well as cognitive structures that underlie ...
Universal cures for idiosyncratic illnesses: a genealogy of therapeutic reasoning in the mental health field
(SAGE Publications, 2014-08)
Over the past decades, there has been a significant increase in prescriptions of psychotropic drugs for mental disorders. So far, most of the explanations of the phenomenon have focused on the process of medicalization, ...
Intermolecular interactions between Bottlebrush Polymers boost the protection of surfaces against frictional wear
(ACS Publications, 2018-05-30)
Polymers exhibiting the bottlebrush (BB) architecture have excellent lubricating properties. However, to motivate their use in real life systems, they must also protect surfaces against frictional damage. In this article, ...
Clinical importance of thrombocytopenia in patients with acute coronary syndromes : a systematic review and meta-analysis
Thrombocytopenia in acute coronary syndromes
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-10-22)
Thrombocytopenia (TP) is common in hospitalized patients. In the context of acute coronary syndromes (ACS), TP has been linked to adverse clinical outcomes. We present a systematic review and meta-analysis of the evidence ...
Unified scaling of the structure and loading of nanoparticles formed via diffusion-limited coalescence
(American Chemical Society, 2018-04-30)
The present study establishes the scaling laws describing the structure of spherical nanoparticles formed by diffusion-limited coalescence. We produced drug-loaded nanoparticles from a poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(d,l-lactic ...
Preparedness for the next epidemic : health and political issues of an emerging paradigm
(Taylor & Francis, 2018-03-08)
‘Preparing for the next epidemic’ has been a recurrent theme in global health in recent years. Starting with SARS, by way of the Avian influenza, and intensifying after the 2013–2016 Ebola outbreak, the urgency of ...
Mechanistic insights into the directed assembly of hydrogel blocks mediated by polyelectrolytes or microgels
In this study, we report the directed assembly of hydrogel blocks mediated by electrostatic interactions. We compared two different assembly mechanisms, one mediated by microgel particles and another mediated ...
Tyrosine-based rivastigmine-loaded organogels in the treatmant of Alzheimer's disease
Organogels can be prepared by immobilizing an organic phase into a threedimensional network coming from the self-assembly of a low molecular weight gelator molecule. In this work, an injectable subcutaneous organogel ...
