The solid-state form of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) in an oral dosage form plays an important role in determining the dissolution rate of the API. As the solid-state form can change during dissolution, there is a need to monitor the oral dosage form during dissolution testing. Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy provides(More)
Abnormal patterns of diastolic ventricular filling are well recognized in chronic heart failure, but their relationship to the severity of heart failure is not known. The present study evaluates the relationship of diastolic filling indices to the severity of heart failure and to exercise capacity. In 40 patients with chronic heart failure secondary to(More)
This study reports the use of variants of coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) microscopy as a novel method for improved physicochemical characterization of drug-loaded silica particles. Ordered mesoporous silica is a biomaterial that can be loaded to carry a number of biochemicals, including poorly water-soluble drugs, by allowing the incorporation(More)
According to the quality by design principle processes may not remain black-boxes and full process understanding is required. The granule size distribution of granules produced via twin screw granulation is often found to be bimodal. The aim of this study was to gain a better understanding of binder distribution within granules produced via twin screw(More)
The efficacy of multiple intravenous bolus injections of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) in inducing rapid coronary recanalization in patients with acute myocardial infarction was previously demonstrated. In this Bolus Dose-Escalation Study of Tissue-Type Plasminogen Activator (BEST), the efficacy of 3 different doses of a single rapid intravenous(More)
Nonlinear optical imaging is an emerging technology with much potential in pharmaceutical analysis. The technique encompasses a range of optical phenomena, including coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS), second harmonic generation (SHG), and twophoton excited fluorescence (TPEF). The combined potential of these phenomena for pharmaceutical imaging(More)
Traditional pharmaceutical dissolution tests determine the amount of drug dissolved over time by measuring drug content in the dissolution medium. This method provides little direct information about what is happening on the surface of the dissolving tablet. As the tablet surface composition and structure can change during dissolution, it is essential to(More)
OBJECTIVE Detecting and eliminating ethnic disparities in access to and outcomes of healthcare relies on accurate ethnicity recording. Studies have shown that there are inaccuracies in ethnicity data in New Zealand and elsewhere. This study examined coverage and accuracy of ethnicity data for three Asian ethnic groups. METHODS Student researchers from, or(More)
