A simple, high-throughput, sensitive LC-ESI-MS/MS method is presented for the simultaneous determination of methadone (MET), flunitrazepam (FNZ) and their major metabolites, EDDP (2-ethilidene-1,5-dimethyl-3,3-diphenylpyrrolidone) and 7-aminoflunitrazepam (7-AFNZ), respectively, in human, rat and rabbit plasma. The isolation of the selected compounds(More)
ObjectiveRetroflex views of the rectal vault are included in the teaching of colonoscopic technique but are not pervasive in clinical practice. The utility of adding a retroflex maneuver at the end of colonoscopy has yet to be determined. The aim of this study was to evaluate the additional benefit of a retroflex view of the rectal vault at the completion(More)
We evaluated the possible endocrine disruptive effect of butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) (300mg/kg bw), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) (75mg/kg bw) and propyl gallate (PG) (405mg/kg bw), compounds extensively used as antioxidants in foods, food packaging, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals using the immature rat uterotrophic assay. To investigate their estrogenic(More)
The individual and combined (binary mixtures) (anti)androgenic effect of butylparaben (BuPB), butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA), butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) and propyl gallate (PG) was evaluated using the MDA-kb2 cell line. Exposing these cells to AR agonists results in the expression of the reporter gene (encoding for luciferase) and luminescence can be(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of an extract of Genista tinctoria L. herba (GT) or methylparaben (MP) on histopathological changes and 2 biomarkers of oxidative stress in rats subchronicly exposed to bisphenol A (BPA). METHODS Adult female Wistar rats were orally exposed for 90 d to BPA (50 mg/kg), BPA+GT (35 mg isoflavones/kg) or BPA+MP (250 mg/kg).(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are one of the most prescribed classes of psychotropics. Even though the SSRI class consists of 6 molecules (citalopram, escitalopram, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, paroxetine and sertraline), only fluoxetine was intensively studied for endocrine disruptive effects, while the other SSRIs(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are antidepressants increasingly prescribed for pregnancy and postpartum depression. However, these compounds can cross the placenta and also pass into breast milk, thus reaching the fetus and infant during critical developmental stages, potentially causing adverse effects. Fluoxetine, a(More)
Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) is extensively used as antioxidant in foods, food packaging, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. In the past years, it raised concerns regarding its possible endocrine disrupting effect. The existing in vitro studies indicate that BHA presents a weak estrogenic effect and also anti-androgenic properties while an in vivo study found(More)
Health informatics technology includes the information technology and electronics employed during medical care procedures and is generally known as clinical informatics. The definition of this specialty was given by the American Medical Information Association in order to describe the role of communication systems in improving the doctor-patient(More)
HAV Ab Total Positive, HCV Positive HDVAb Negative, HIV Negative Results: Platelet transfusions, IVIG and solumedrol were administered to increase the platelet count. A bone marrow biopsy showed increased megakaryocytes. Because he was on steroids, Lamivudine was empirically started to suppress viral replication. He was discharged on tapering steroids and(More)
