[…] on treatment compliance [, , , , ]. a less charitable interpretation would suggest that the bulk of scientific literature that has accumulated in support of bright-light treatment is built atop a sandcastle foundation: any results must be interpreted with the utmost caution due to, more often than not, flawed experimental design. and yet, randomized and double-blind clinical trials […]

[…] the great challenges in the adhesion science and technology is to develop smart materials with switchable adhesive properties in a wet environment., in nature, many marine organisms such as mussels, sandcastle worms, and barnacles orchestrate a powerful wet adhesion mechanism through the elegant blend of catechol chemistry, polyelectrolyte complex, and supramolecular architectures–.

[…] features may provide scallops with enhanced vision or light sensitivity as part of their adaptation to epibenthic semi-sessile life., many aquatic animals including bivalves, barnacles, and sandcastle worms have evolved effective strategies for adhesion as adaptation to turbulent currents. as an ancestral feature of bivalves, byssal attachment is an essential part of the sessile […]

[…] ransom & hlady, ). nevertheless, only a few adhesives have been studied in detail, such as the byssus threads of mussels (qin et al., ), barnacle cement (kamino et al., ), and the glue used by sandcastle worms (zhao et al., ). most of these aquatic organisms use glues based on modified amino acid side chains, especially phosphorylated serines and hydroxylated tyrosines [e.g. […]

[…] or moisture is dramatically reduced. in this review, representative types of medical adhesives and the challenging aspects of wet adhesion are introduced. the adhesion mechanisms of marine mussels, sandcastle worms, and endoparasitic worms are described, and stemming from the insights gained, designs based on the chemistry of molecules like catechol and on coacervation and mechanical […]
