Series: Advances in Medicine and Biology
BISAC: MED000000

This edited monograph includes eight chapters, each discussing recent advancements in the fields of medicine and biology. Chapter One provides information on the mechanisms of polyurethane degradation. Chapter Two reviews the inhibitory effect of chlorogenic acid on metabolic syndrome-related vascular endothelial cell damage, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. Chapter Three investigates the development of fatigue of rat skeletal muscle under the action of water-soluble pristine C60 fullerenes as powerful antioxidants. Chapter Four describes the targeted delivery of immunosuppressants. Chapter Five focuses on the in vitro degradation of biopolymers using enzymes and microorganisms. Chapter Six reviews the risk factors for hearing loss in infants admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit and the management of such patients detected with hearing loss. Finally, Chapter Seven describes recently developed methods and tools used in physiological studies of human sensory neurons induced from human pluripotent stem cells.
