Herbicide formulations containing known amounts of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) and exposed to natural sunlight on leaves, soil, or glass plates lost most or all of the TCDD during a single day, due principally to photochemical dechlorination. Despite the known persistence of pure TCDD, it is not stable as a contaminant in thin herbicide films(More)
Blood and serum specimens from 100 subjects in a driving study were tested for the presence of delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) by 3H- and 125I-labeled RIA and GC/MS. The specimens were also analyzed for 11-nor-9-carboxy-delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol by the two RIA methods. Blind quality control specimens containing THC were included with each batch of(More)
Chlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans have been known to chemists for many years. 2,8-Dichlorodibenzo-p-dioxin was first reported in 1941 (1); the 2,3,7,8tetrachloro(TCDD) and octachloro(OCDD) analogs followed in 1957 (2). Extensive research by Gilman (3) and by Pohland and Yang (4) provided data on many others. Likewise, simple chlorinated(More)
In previous finite element studies of cementless hip stems reported in the literature, the effect of bone quality on the initial micromotion and interface bone strain has been rarely reported. In this study, the effect of varying cortical and cancellous bone modulus on initial stem micromotion and interface bone strain was examined and the potential(More)
The laser flare-cell meter is a newly developed instrument designed to measure anterior chamber protein concentration in vivo. There was a linear relationship between photon count measured with this instrument and the concentration of bovine serum albumin. Measurements were taken in 29 eyes of normal subjects divided into two groups. Group 1 (15 eyes) had(More)
