Quotes

...Segre said, "We need to know if a patient comes into the hospital colonized with CRE."
"Over the past decade, there has been a steady and alarming increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria."
Reporters obtained the following quote from the background information supplied by the inventors: "The gonadotrophins are a group of heterodimeric glycoprotein hormones which regulate gonadal function in the male and female. They include follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinising hormone (LH) and chorionic gonadotrophin (CG)."
"The bioscaffoldings may also be used to coat stents or cardiac medical devices such as pace-maker leads. In these embodiments the bioscaffoldings would be functionalized with DNA plasmids complexed to polyarginine, poly-1-lysine, or with DNA/PEI complexes. The DNA functionalized on the bioscaffoldings encodes proteins that would be valuable for expression by the cells in the positions in the body where either a stent or a pace-maker lead would be placed."
