Adhesion in Pharmaceutical, Biomedical, and Dental Fields (Adhesion and Adhesives: Fundamental and Applied Aspects) 1st Edition

The only book to cover adhesion in pharmaceutical, biomedical and dental fields

The phenomenon of adhesion is of cardinal importance in the pharmaceutical, biomedical and dental fields. A few eclectic examples will suffice to underscore the importance/relevance of adhesion in these three areas. For example, the adhesion between powdered solids is of crucial importance in tablet manufacture. The interaction between biodevices (e.g., stents, bio-implants) and body environment dictates the performance of such devices, and there is burgeoning research activity in modifying the surfaces of such implements to render them compatible with bodily components. In the field of dentistry, the modern trend is to shift from retaining of restorative materials by mechanical interlocking to adhesive bonding.

The book contains 15 chapters written by internationally-renowned subject matter experts and is divided into four parts: Part 1: General Topics; Part 2: Adhesion in Pharmaceutical Field; Part 3: Adhesion in Biomedical Field; and Part 4: Adhesion in Dental Field.

The topics covered include: Theories or mechanisms of adhesion; wettability of powders; role of surface free energy in tablet strength and powder flow behavior; mucoadhesive polymers for drug delivery systems; transdermal patches; skin adhesion in long-wear cosmetics; factors affecting microbial adhesion; biofouling and ways to mitigate it; adhesion of coatings on surgical tools and bio-implants; adhesion in fabrication of microarrays in clinical diagnostics; antibacterial polymers for dental adhesives and composites; evolution of dental adhesives; and testing of dental adhesive joints.

Antibiotics and Antibiotic Resistance in the Environment 1st Edition

The presence of antibiotics, antibiotic resistance genes, and antibiotic resistant bacteria in the environment (i.e., outside of clinical settings, such as antibiotic-treated patients or antibiotic-impregnated locations, such as hospitals) is a cause of growing worldwide concern, as it reveals the extensive impact of antibiotic abuse and other human-related pressures upon microbes. Also, the potential clinical and environmental impact of the presence of antibiotic resistance outside the obvious clinical settings is mostly unknown, but could be unexpectedly large, as resistance in clinical conditions can be seen as a very small “tip of the iceberg”. The field of detecting and measuring resistance in the environment has rapidly evolved from mostly anecdotal reports at the end of the 1990s, to a systematic search of organisms and genes in a wide variety of settings, from ancient permafrost to migratory birds. This book will review the available evidence and hypotheses on where this resistance is coming from and for how long it has been there; what are the selective and maintenance pressures involved, and how is resistance spreading; what are the known and possible traits that are being selected and spread along with antibiotic resistance ones; what are the laboratory and in-silico strategies to look into this issue, and their advantages and disadvantages.
