A number of studies reported that the MTS in vitro cytotoxicity assay is a convenient method for assessing cell viability. The main features found with this assay are its ease of use, accuracy and rapid indication of toxicity. It might well be a useful tool in human health risk assessment if it can be shown that this assay also has an acceptable sensitivity(More)
The antimicrobial and toxicological properties of the Australian essential oil, lemon myrtle, (Backhousia citriodora) were investigated. Lemon myrtle oil was shown to possess significant antimicrobial activity against the organisms Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida albicans, methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA),(More)
A cytogenetic study performed in a group of workers exposed to polychlorinated biphenyls comprised analysis of structural chromosomal aberrations in the lymphocytes in the first division in vitro, analysis of micronuclei frequency in binuclear lymphoblasts induced by cytochalasin B and analysis of sister chromatid exchanges. The study included 48 exposed(More)
Contaminated site projects involve health risk assessment procedures that must consider potential interactive effects of present contaminants. In order to establish a quick and reliable method that accounts for smaller than additive, additive, or greater than additive toxic effects, this study compared the cytotoxicity of 34 binary and ternary chemical(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify a suitable sampling model for on-site toxicity assessment of soluble air contaminants such as formaldehyde, a well known industrial and indoor air contaminant. The in vitro cytotoxicity of formaldehyde, the selected model for soluble air contaminants, was studied using the MTS (tetrazolium salt) assay in two(More)
Fire combustion products contain a broad range of chemicals, which have a multitude of possible toxic interactions in humans. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cytotoxicity of selected substances commonly produced during fire combustion. A range of human cell lines and cultures including: skin fibroblasts, HepG2 (liver derived), and A549 (lung(More)
The in vitro percutaneous absorption of the essential oil of lemon myrtle (Backhousia citriodora) has been studied in freshly excised human full-thickness abdominal skin obtained from patients undergoing elective surgery. Absorption of lemon myrtle oil in human skin discs (4.9 cm(2)) was evaluated using a Franz cell diffusion system following topical(More)
The objects of this investigation were the comparative kinetic analysis of the NiO and NiCl2 reduction by hydrogen during an induction period and elimination of the calcination during the synthesis of Ni/Al2O3 catalysts. The effect of temperature and time on NiO and NiCl2 reduction degrees was studied. Avrami I equation was selected as the most favorable(More)
The partition coefficients (log P) of theoretically possible alkyliodinated iminodiacetic acid (IDA) derivatives and commercial IDA derivatives were calculated using two computer programs: ChemSketch Log P and ChemOffice Ultra. Newly synthesized ligands (DIETHYLIODIDA and DIISOPROPYLIODIDA) with the highest calculated log P were labeled with technetium-99m.(More)
