A keloid is a benign, well-demarcated area of fibrous tissue overgrowth that extends beyond the original defect.
A hypertrophic scar is similar but remains confined to the initial defect and tends to resolve with time. An imbalance of matrix degradation and collagen biosynthesis resulting in excess accumulation of collagen in the wound has been postulated to be the primary biochemical features of this skin lesion.
HIV is a chronic viral infection which over time reduces a person's defence system and makes them more likely to catch infections.
This reduction in the effectiveness of the defense system can lead to the symptoms known as AIDS.
Infection with HIV can occur because of;
Knowledge and applications of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIP), is rapidly developing, especially in the chemical analysis field, Molecular imprinting is a method of inducing molecular recognition properties in synthetic polymers in response to the presence of a template species during formation of the three-dimensional structure of the polymer.
