Disodium sebacate is a 10-carbon-atom dicarboxylic acid, proposed as substrate for parenteral nutrition. We investigated its pharmacokinetic profile and thermogenic effect during a short-time infusion (5 h at 10 g/h) in 7 male volunteers. Sebacate in serum and urine was measured by high-performance liquid chromatography. A single-compartment model with two(More)
OBJECTIVE We performed a literature review with the main aims to propose an updated overview of the effectiveness of stair-use interventions and to determine the most effective type of intervention. METHODS We systematically searched stair-use interventions performed in worksites or public settings, published up to mid 2013. We used a harvest plot(More)

Dodecanedioic acid (C12), a saturated, aliphatic dicarboxylic acid with 12 carbon atoms, was given as an intravenous bolus (800 mumol/kg of body weight [kgBW]) in male Wistar rats to study its pharmacokinetic profile. Because total plasma C12, which results from the sum of both free and albumin binding fractions, was measured by high-performance liquid(More)
