The furcocystocercous cercariae of the digenetic trematode, Proterometra macrostoma , possess a tail chamber into which their distome body withdraws prior to emergence from their snail intermediate host. The process of distome retraction and the conditions that trigger it in this species are not clear. The objectives of the present study were (1) to(More)
Direct detection of proteins in high-performance liquid chromatography electrochemistry (LCEC) is difficult. By using on-line, postcolumn photolysis, proteins now can be detected by LCEC at microgram per milliliter levels. The compatibilities of size exclusion chromatography (SEC), reversed-phase chromatography (RPC), ion-exchange chromatography (IEC), and(More)
The use of molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) as sorbents for the solid phase extraction (SPE) of a pharmaceutical compound in development, prior to quantitative analysis was investigated. Three MIPs were synthesised using a structural analogue as the template molecule. Each polymer was prepared with different monomers and porogens. The MIPs were then(More)
This study presents a carrier system for boron, potentially useful in boron neutron capture therapy (BNCT). Na2B12H11SH (BSH) was covalently coupled to dextran derivatives. This was accomplished in two ways. The first method comprises activation of dextran with 1-cyano-4-(dimethylamino)pyridine (CDAP) with subsequent coupling of 2-aminoethyl pyridyl(More)
