  • Publication number: 20180171056
    Abstract: Described herein are copolymers, and methods of making and utilizing such copolymers. Such copolymers have at least two blocks: a first block that has at least one unit that is hydrophilic at physiologic pH, and a second block that has hydrophobic groups. This second block further has at least one unit with a group that is anionic at about physiologic pH. The described copolymers are disruptive of a cellular membrane, including an extracellular membrane, an intracellular membrane, a vesicle, an organelle, an endosome, a liposome, or a red blood cell. Preferably, in certain instances, the copolymer disrupts the membrane and enters the intracellular environment. In specific examples, the copolymer is endosomolytic.

  • Patent number: 8408899
    Abstract: Described herein are various embodiments of a dental delivery system. For example, in one exemplary embodiment, a rear dental delivery system through which at least one of water, air and vacuum are delivered for use by a care giver in treating a patient occupying a nearby dental chair can include at least one movable arm that is pivotably mounted to a pivot connection and an upright mounted to the at least one movable arm. The pivot connection can be mounted at approximately a floor level and the at least one movable arm can be configured to pivot slightly above the floor level so as to reduce obstruction in a space separating the dental chair from the dental delivery system.
