Extracellular products (ECP) secreted from Aeromonas hydrophila with haemolytic and proteolytic activity were studied with respect to temperature and time of incubation as well as the lethal toxicity on tilapia, Tilapia nilotica. The highest production of the haemolysin product was achieved when Aer. hydrophila was grown at 35 degrees C for 30 h. Tilapia(More)
The compound class of 3-carboranyl thymidine analogues (3CTAs) are boron delivery agents for boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT), a binary treatment modality for cancer. Presumably, these compounds accumulate selectively in tumor cells via intracellular trapping, which is mediated by hTK1. Favorable in vivo biodistribution profiles of 3CTAs led to(More)
CONTEXT The close proximity of splenic hilum to the tail of pancreas makes it vulnerable to complications in both acute and chronic pancreatitis. In this article, we examine the clinical course of these potentially fatal complications. CASE REPORTS Citing three clinical cases, we present the spectrum of splenic complications in pancreatitis and explore(More)
We used the ovine as bioreactor for the production and optimization of anti-tetanus toxin antibody. Four female sheep were immunized with human tetanus vaccine (TT-alum) every two weeks for 16 weeks, after which serum was collected and its titer was estimated by ELISA. The highest titer obtained was 39,000 IU ml-1. To optimize a purification protocol for(More)
The aorta is a conduit from the left ventricle that delivers pulsatile blood distally in either a compliant or stiffened vessel to organs and tissue beds. Only recently, since the advent of transesophageal echocardiographic imaging, did its presence and associated pathologies become more profound and more prominent for the intensivist. Angiography, the(More)

Analog to Digital converters are some of the most commonly used mixed-signal circuits nowadays. Testing such circuits has recently become extremely important. In this paper, a low-cost test is developed for a one-stage Pipelined Analog-to-Digital Converter (PADC). This circuit consists of one operational amplifier, one comparator, five transmission gates(More)
The synthesis and initial biological evaluation of 3-carboranylthymidine analogues (3CTAs) that are (radio)halogenated at the closo-carborane cluster are described. Radiohalogenated 3CTAs have the potential to be used in the radiotherapy and imaging of cancer because they may be selectively entrapped in tumor cells through monophosphorylation by human(More)
BACKGROUND Fluorescence of pathogenic fungi has been previously shown when hematoxylin and eosin-stained sections are examined under a fluorescent microscope. We hypothesize that this phenomenon could aid in the evaluation of nail specimens for onychomycosis. METHODS Forty-eight routinely stained nail sections of periodic acid-Schiff (PAS)-positive(More)
