    4.2 Materials and Method 4.2.1 Materials The size of the particle should be large enough to allow three proteins coupling together onto one particle. Therefore, Dynal® MyOneTM 1-μm carboxyl particle (Invitrogen®) and Merck® EM1-100/40 particle were used as the carrier particles. If positive results were seen, the work would be expanded to particles in other sizes, materials and manufacturers, such as Allrun® PM3-050 or Dynal® M270 particles. The proteins chosen for coupling were mouse IgG, streptavidin

    These strategies simply target at a model of care for treating DR based on diagnosis rather than an opportunity for preventative eye care and health promotion. Fundus photography, ophthalmoscopy, and fluorescein angiography are the typical tools to diagnose DR and diabetic macular edema [38, 39].

    the fluorescent exclusion dye Propidium Iodide (PI) and Fluorescein Diacetate (FDA), which is a cell permeable esterase substrate. This method is based on the fact that PI is permeable to cells only when there is damage to the cell membrane while FDA is a fluorescein molecule with two acetate groups attached via ester bonds. FDA passes the plasma membrane and live cells then cleaves the acetate groups resulting in a photostable fluorescein molecule that remains in the cell. PI and FDA were purchased

    According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) triple negative breast cancer is subtype of breast cancer that lack estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors or large amounts of HER2/neu proteins. It’s commonly known as ER-negative, PR-negative and HER2/neu-negative breast cancer (1). Due to the aforementioned characteristic of triple negative breast cancer it is insensitive to most of the effective therapies available for breast cancer treatment including HER2-directed therapy such as trastuzumab

    Diabetic retinopathy (DR) is the most common cause of vision loss in working aged individuals in developed countries. Diabetic macular edema (DME) is the main cause of decreased vision in diabetic retinopathy [1]. It was shown that the 10-year cumulative incidence of diabetic macular edema was 20.1% in type 1 diabetes and 25.4% in patients with type 2 diabetes treated with insulin [2]. The management of DME includes strict glycemic and blood pressure control [3-5]. Argon laser treatment for clinically
