The grazing trial at Kidston Gold Mine, North Queensland, was aimed specifically to assess the uptake of metals from the tailing and the potential for unacceptable contamination of saleable meat. Further aims included estimating metal dose rates and identifying potential exposure pathways including plant uptake of heavy metals, mine tailings adhered to(More)
Genetic and environmental factors are both likely to contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders, including ASDs (autism spectrum disorders). In this study, we examined the combinatorial effect of two factors thought to be involved in autism--reduction in the expression of the extracellular matrix protein reelin and prenatal exposure to an organophosphate(More)
Crystalline tissue deposits were found at the time of autopsy in a 52-year-old male subject who had had multiple myeloma for 6 1/2 years and in whom the hyperviscosity syndrome had developed terminally. The tissue deposits were digested by trypsin, but could not be further characterized by immunohistochemical techniques. The crystals varied in size and(More)
The objective of this work was to synthesize and characterize a novel series of biodegradable cyclic carbonate polyester copolymers based on lactide and 5-methyl-5-benzyloxy-carbonyl-1,3-dioxan-2-one (MBC). Two compositions were selected for characterization. One copolymer was based on a racemic mixture of 1-lactide with 15.4 mole % MBC and the other was(More)
