Co-polymer Stabilizers for Pressured Metered Dose Inhalers (pMDIs)
A series of novel co polymer surfactants with the general structure LAmEOnLAm were developed along with a Colloidal Probe Microscopy (CPM) method to optimize the surfactant composition using adhesion forces to improve stabilization of drug dispersions. This expands the range of biomolecules and micronized drug particles that can be formulated with pMDIs....

An In Vitro Model System for Studying Development of Human Preneoplastic Breast Disease
Wayne State University researchers have developed a novel model/assay system that recapitulates in vitro the in vivo processes that lead to breast cancer development and progression from preneoplastic tissue. This model is the first that demonstrates in vitro the de novo development and neoplastic conversion of functional alveolar units. Advantages...
