According to lab studies, a breakthrough aqueous lubricant technology intended to treat people with dry mouths is up to five times more effective than currently available commercial products.
Traditional methods, such as topical or systemic antibiotic administration, may not be effective in preventing colonization, even though it is a major cause of failure and clinical complications for load-bearing metallic orthopedic implants. This is especially true in the case of secondary infection, which frequently necessitates surgical removal of the implants and, in extreme cases, even limb amputation.
Imagine a household that consumes 1,000 kilowatt hours of energy per month. Then they install solar panels on their roof that generate 500 kilowatt hours of electricity per month on average.
