Western University of Health science is a private, non-profit, graduate school for the health professions, with a main campus located on 22 acres in downtown Pomona, California, and an additional medical school campus on 50 acres in Lebanon, Oregon. WesternU offers degrees in osteopathic medicine, dental medicine, optometry, podiatric medicine, nursing, physician assistant studies, physical therapy, pharmacy, biomedical science, and veterinary medicine. With an enrollment of 3,916 students , WesternU is one of the largest graduate schools for the health professions in California, offering 21 academic programs in nine colleges. The university also operates two patient care centers, and has a pet wellness center on its Pomona campus.Founded in 1977, the first program at WesternU was its medical school, the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific . Since that time, several additional programs have opened. When the College of Veterinary Medicine opened in 2003, it was the first veterinary school to open in the United States in 20 years. In 2007, WesternU became the first university in the nation to appoint a female as dean of a veterinary medical school. In 2009, three new colleges opened: dental medicine, optometry, and podiatric medicine. In 2011, the university opened an additional campus in Lebanon, Oregon known as the College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific - Northwest . All of the programs at WesternU have professional accreditation, and the university is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The medical school is also accredited by the American Osteopathic Association's Commission on Osteopathic College Accreditation. Wikipedia.

Specific applications of particles and particle agglomerates with semiconductor surfaces are provided. The particles and particle agglomerates display a high affinity for viral particles, and may be used therapeutically and/or prophylactically to treat or prevent viral infections. The particles and particle agglomerates may also be used to remove viral particles from a surface or fluid, e.g., as an absorbent in a filter, applied to surfaces to render them virostatic, and as tool to handle viral particles, e.g., for research, diagnostic, or decontamination purposes.

The invention relates to a novel free-flowing powder pharmaceutical formulation for the delivery of a poorly-water-soluble drug substance that increases the solubility and bioavailability of the poorly- water soluble drug substance, as well as to a method of making the free-flowing powder pharmaceutical formulation. The invention also relates to dispersed particles that disperse instantaneously from the free-flowing powder formulation when the formulation is added to water, aqueous solvent, or organic solvent, wherein the bulk distribution of the poorly-water soluble drug substance of the free-flowing powder formulation in the dispersed particles is uniform. Such dispersed particles increase the bioavailable surface area of the poorly water-soluble drug substance and facilitate the drug substances dissolution.
