BACKGROUND Tissue engineering using mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is a recent therapeutic modality that has several advantages. MSCs have high proliferation potential and may be manipulated to permit differentiation before being transplanted, suggesting they may be an ideal candidate for regenerative procedures. Precise identification of cells capable of(More)
The separation of riboflavin, flavin mononucleotide and flavin adenine dinucleotide was investigated by capillary zone electrophoresis using laser-induced fluorescence detection. In the systematic approach developed, the differential electrophoretic mobilities were first maximized by adjusting the pH. Increasing the buffer concentration improved the(More)
The separation and simultaneous determination of doxorubicin, daunorubicin and idarubicin was investigated using capillary electrophoresis with laser-induced fluorescence detection. Because the three anthracycline antibiotics were similar in structure and mass, careful manipulation of the electroosmotic flow and electrophoretic mobilities was required. A(More)
Simulation studies have predicted that maximum lipase activity is reached with fed-batch operation strategies. In this work, two different fed-batch operational strategies have been studied: constant substrate feeding rate and specific growth rate control. A constant substrate feeding rate strategy showed that maximum aqueous lipolytic activity (55 U/mL)(More)
BACKGROUND Platelet-rich plasma is a blood-derived fraction that contains a high concentration of platelets and growth factors. It was proposed that the use of this platelet concentrate stimulates tissue repair. However, little is known about the biologic response of gingival fibroblasts to platelet's derived growth factors. In the present study, we(More)
Periodontal disease is one of the most common conditions affecting humans, and current treatment strategies, which focus on the removal and long-term control of dental plaque, are generally successful in eliminating active disease and promoting tissue repair. However, regeneration of the supporting structures of the tooth remains an elusive goal and a(More)
A flow-injection method for the determination of tiopronin in the range 1 x 10(-7)-7 x 10(-5) M is described. The procedure is based on the chemiluminescent reaction of tiopronin with cerium(i.v.) in sulphuric acid medium using rhodamine 6G and quinine as fluorophors. The flow-injection method is rapid and precise and allows measurements of up to 80(More)
The spectrophotometric determination of trace amounts of ranitidine was carried out by liquid-liquid extraction using bromothymol blue with a flow system. The determination of ranitidine in the range of 1 x 10(-5) - 1 x 10(-4) mol l(-1) was possible with a sampling frequency of 40 samples h(-1). The method was satisfactorily applied to the determination of(More)
A simple and rapid fluorimetric method for the determination of mixtures of thiamine and ascorbic acid is proposed. The procedure is based on the oxidation with mercury(II) of the B1 and C vitamins to form thiochrome (TC) and quinoxaline derivate, respectively. Both reaction products exhibit fluorescence at the same wavelengths (lambdaex = 356 and lambdaem(More)
A sensitive method for the determination of omeprazole and its metabolites has been developed. It involves an automated solid phase extraction (SPE) procedure and capillary electrophoresis with UV detection. Omeprazole, hydroxyomeprazole and omeprazole sulfone could be separated by micellar electrokinetic capillary chromatography using a background(More)
