Thermo-sensitive Hydrogel for Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion
This invention is nanostructured radiopaque, biomimetic, anti-coagulant, and thermo-sensitive hydrogel which is injected directly into the left atrial appendage (LAA) to occlude the space thereby preventing clot formation and subsequent atrial fibrillation and stroke. The thermo-sensitive properties of this hydrogel enable it to be delivered percutaneously...

Apoliprotein-B Functionalized Nanoparticles for Targeted Delivery to Atherosclerotic Plaques
This invention is a proteolipid nanoparticle platform functionalized with apolipoprotein B-100 for localized delivery of therapeutic compounds to atherosclerotic plaques, termed aposomes. Apolipoprotein B-100 is a crucial functional and structural component of low density lipoproteins (LDLs) and therefore plays a critical role in cholesterol transport...
