The major factors that determine a favorable long-term clinical and functional outcome after conventional total knee arthroplasty (TKA) include correct implant positioning and restoration of the mechanical axis with soft tissue balancing to reduce aseptic failure; hence, the need for further developmental strategies that improve the accuracy and(More)
Near-infrared (NIR) spectrometry was successfully used for the non-invasive and in situ determination of concentrations and structure of water absorbed by room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs). It was found that RTILs based on 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium, namely, [BuMIm]+ [BF4]-, [BuMIm]+ [bis((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl)amide, or Tf2N]- and [BuMIm]+ [PF6]-,(More)
A new method has been developed for the sensitive and accurate determination of enantiomeric compositions of a variety of drugs, including propranolol, naproxen, and warfarin. The method is based on the use of the fluorescence technique to measure diastereomeric interactions between both enantiomeric forms of a drug with an optically active room temperature(More)
We have successfully synthesized both enantiomers of a novel chiral ionic liquid, (R)- and (S)-[(3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyl) trimethylammonium][bis((trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl)amide] ((R)- and (S)-[CHTA]+[Tf2N]-) in optically pure form by a simple ion exchange reaction from corresponding chloride salts that are commercially available. In addition to the ease of(More)
Sequences from three gene regions from the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes were used to examine the extent and nature of hierarchical structure in the Drosophilamojavensis cluster (Drosophila arizonae, D. mojavensis and D. navojoa) of the D. repleta species group. To determine the genetic divergence of these three species, sequence data were analyzed(More)
SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Growing rods are a commonly used form of growth guidance for patients with early onset scoliosis, but no studies exist to characterize their use among a large group of surgeons. METHODS A survey regarding growing rod use preferences and a case-based survey regarding early onset scoliosis were completed by an international group(More)
Extensive literature has demonstrated that arousal and fear modify memory acquisition and consolidation. Predator hair and odors increase arousal in rats and, therefore, may influence information encoding and synaptic plasticity in the rodent nervous system. In behavioral experiments, we confirm that laboratory-bred Long Evans rats avoid cat hair.(More)
Sequences from three gene regions from the nuclear and mitochondrial genomes were used to examine the extent and nature of hierarchical structure in the Drosophila moja6ensis cluster (Drosophila arizonae, D. moja6ensis and D. na6ojoa) of the D. repleta species group. To determine the genetic divergence of these three species, sequence data were analyzed(More)
A new method has been developed for the determination of enantiomeric compositions of a variety of compounds. The method is based on the use of the near-infrared technique to measure diastereomeric interactions between an added carbohydrate compound with both enantiomeric forms of an analyte followed by partial least-squares analysis of the data. The fact(More)
Crystalline assemblies of fluorescent molecules have different functional properties than the constituent monomers, as well as unique optical characteristics that depend on the structure, size, and morphological homogeneity of the crystal particles. In this study, we selected peptides with affinity for the surface of perylene crystal particles by exposing a(More)
