BACKGROUND Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) can lead to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The NASH fibrosis score (NFS) has proven to be a reliable, non-invasive marker for prediction of advanced fibrosis. Aspartate aminotransferase-to-platelet ratio index (APRI) is a simpler calculation than NFS, but has never been studied in patients with(More)
A method is described for the quantitative analysis of seven known compounds, specifically plicatic acid, thujaplicatin methyl ether, beta-thujaplicin, gamma-thujaplicin, beta-thujaplicinol, thujic acid, and methyl thujate, in the ethanol extract of second growth western redcedar heartwood (Thuja plicata Donn) by high-performance liquid chromatography using(More)
Interspecies hybrids between distinct species of the genus Xiphophorus are often used in varied research investigations to identify genomic regions associated with the inheritance of complex traits. There are 24 described Xiphophorus species and a greater number of pedigreed strains; thus, the number of potential interspecies hybrid cross combinations is(More)
An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), based on polyclonal antibodies, was used to quantify didecyldimethylammonium chloride (DDAC) in industrial antisapstain treating solutions. The initial ELISA validation included: cross-reactivity with similar analytes, interference with non-related compounds, percentage of false negative and false positive(More)
In healthy normotensive pregnancy, a complex functional network develops between the cardiovascular system, the volume and composition of the extracellular fluid and the renin-angiotensin system (RAS). Cardiac output and heart rate increase, but blood pressure is reduced. The kidneys increase in size and both the glomerular filtration rate and renal blood(More)
A solution of internal standard in acetonitrile is used to extract samples of wood from lumber which had been commercially treated with chlorinated phenols. The tetrachlorophenol(TCP) and pentachlorophenol( PCP) were analytically separated from each other and from the other wood extractive compounds using a high performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC). The(More)
A method has been developed which allows estimation of the kinetic parameters of the plasma renin-angiotensinogen reaction from data obtained by autologous renin assays at several plasma dilutions. The quantitative aspects of the renin-angiotensin system were examined in 28 plasma samples from 23 healthy, normotensive pregnant women. They were compared with(More)
