OBJECTIVE To identify reliable predictors of outcome in comatose patients after cardiac arrest using a single routine EEG and standardized interpretation according to the terminology proposed by the American Clinical Neurophysiology Society. METHODS In this cohort study, 4 EEG specialists, blinded to outcome, evaluated prospectively recorded EEGs in the(More)
In this paper, we describe the development of a microfluidic/capillary electrophoresis (CE) technique employing partial filling affinity capillary electrophoresis (PFACE) to estimate binding constants of ligands to receptors using as model systems carbonic anhydrase B (CAB, EC 4.2.1.1) and vancomycin from Streptomyces orientalis. Using multilayer soft(More)
This work utilizes on-column ligand synthesis and affinity capillary electrophoresis (ACE) to determine binding constants ( K(b)) of 9-flourenylmethyloxy carbonyl (Fmoc)-amino acid derivatives to the glycopeptide antibiotics ristocetin (Rist) and teicoplanin (Teic). In this technique, two separate plugs of sample are injected on to the capillary column and(More)
This work is an overview of our use of affinity capillary electrophoresis (ACE) to estimate binding constants between D-Ala-D-Ala terminus peptides and the glycopeptides vancomycin (Van) from Streptomyces orientalis, teicoplanin (Teic) from Actinoplanes teicomyceticus, and ristocetin A (Rist) from Nocardia lurida. In these studies, modifications in the ACE(More)
There is a need to examine the prevalence of pediatric chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) in the general community, as well as the relative frequency of CFS and ME among various groups (e.g., different age groups, genders, racial/ethnic groups, and socioeconomic strata) and to compare these individuals with community controls.(More)
Affinity capillary electrophoresis (ACE) is a versatile analytical technique that has been shown to be an efficient and accurate tool to probe non-covalent interactions and to determine binding and dissociation constants between receptors and ligands. ACE uses as its basis the change in migration time of a receptor upon binding to a ligand generally found(More)
