Antimicrobial wafers as a novel technology for infection control in chronic wounds. (2011)
Thesis
LABOVITIADI, O. 2011. Antimicrobial wafers as a novel technology for infection control in chronic wounds. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Bacterial contamination and persistent infection is a common cause of impaired wound healing. Generally, non-healing wounds display similar physiological features with regards to mixed bacterial flora, ischemia and production of exudate. The applicat...

Investigation into the antimicrobial activity of cationic antibacterials. (2011)
Thesis
O'DRISCOLL, N.H. 2011. Investigation into the antimicrobial activity of cationic antibacterials. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The topic addressed by the 2011 WHOs World Health Day was antibacterial resistance. This action served to highlight the serious problem bacterial resistance now presents to healthcare professionals globally. This investigation focussed on the action...

Formulation studies on cysteamine for the treatment of nephropathic cystinosis. (2011)
Thesis
BUCHAN, B.E. 2011. Formulation studies on cysteamine for the treatment of nephropathic cystinosis. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Nephropathic cystinosis is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterised by raised lysosomal levels of cystine in the cells of almost all organs. It is treated by regular oral and topical administration of the aminothiol, cysteamine (Cystagon TM),...

The molecular mechanisms of diabetes mediated impaired wound healing and the development of therapeutic strategies. (2011)
Thesis
GADAD, P.C. 2011. The molecular mechanisms of diabetes mediated impaired wound healing and the development of therapeutic strategies. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Increased levels of blood glucose are associated with the vascular complications of diabetes. Microvascular complications lead to delayed wound healing in patients suffering from diabetes. Hypoxia and hyperglycaemia characterise a wound environment o... Read More about The molecular mechanisms of diabetes mediated impaired wound healing and the development of therapeutic strategies..
