The naphthoquinones 2-hydroxy-3-(1,1-dimethylallyl)-1,4-naphthoquinone (CS-1), (-)-2,3,3-trimethyl-2-3-dihydronaphtho[2,3-b]furan-4,9-quinone (CS-3), and 2-acetoxy-3-(1,1-dimethylallyl)-1,4-naphthoquinone (CS-5) isolated from Calceolaria sessilis were tested against Trypanosoma cruzi epimastigotes, the TA3 tumor cell line and the methotrexate-resistant(More)
Anxiety disorders are said to be universal across all cultures and recent reviews have found relatively high prevalence rates across different countries. However, the experience and interpretation of anxiety are strongly influenced by cultural factors. Demonstrating cross-cultural equivalence of measures of anxiety is essential to assure that comparisons(More)
The effects of nordihydroguaiaretic acid (NDGA), best known as an inhibitor of lipoxygenase activities, on the culture growth, oxygen consumption, ATP level, viability, and redox state of some electron carriers of intact TA3 and 786A ascites tumor cells have been studied. NDGA inhibited the respiration rate of these two tumor cell lines by preventing(More)
The effect of t-butyl-4-hydroxyanisole (BHA), a widely used food antioxidant additive, on the culture growth, oxygen consumption, and redox state of some electron carriers of intact TA3 and 786A ascites tumor cells has been studied. BHA inhibited culture growth and respiration of these two tumor cell lines, by inhibiting the electron flow through the(More)
Staff Working Papers are working documents. They present new ideas, innovative approaches, case studies, bibliographies and research results, prepared either by UNICEF staff or by consultants or by others supported by UNICEF. Their purpose is to facilitate the rapid exchange of knowledge and perspectives among field offices and to stimulate discussion. The(More)
We show that the radical cations of adamantane (C(10)H(16)(*+), 1H(*+)) and perdeuteroadamantane (C(10)D(16)(*+), 1D(*+)) are stable species in the gas phase. The radical cation of adamantylideneadamantane (C(20)H(28)(*+), 2H(*+)) is also stable (as in solution). By using the natural (13)C abundances of the ions, we determine the rate constants for the(More)
We have carried out a study of the energetics, structural, and physical properties of o-, m-, and p-hydroxybenzophenone neutral molecules, C(13)H(10)O(2), and their corresponding anions. In particular, the standard enthalpies of formation in the gas phase at 298.15 K for all of these species were determined. A reliable experimental estimation of the(More)
A study of the histopathologic findings in the specimens of 100 consecutive cases of reduction mammoplasty was performed. The current classification of premalignant breast changes using the presence or absence of atypia in specimens with epithelial hyperplasia was employed. Of the group studied only 1% showed atypical ductal hyperplasia and no cases of(More)
