Drug delivery to brain tumors has long posed a major challenge. Convection-enhanced delivery (CED) has been developed as a drug delivery strategy to overcome this difficulty. Ideally, direct visualization of the tissue distribution of drugs infused by CED would assure successful delivery of therapeutic agents to the brain tumor while minimizing exposure of(More)
Convection-enhanced delivery (CED) is a recently developed technique for local delivery of agents to a large volume of tissue in the central nervous system (CNS). We have previously reported that this technique can be applied to CNS delivery of nanoparticles including viruses and liposomes. In this paper, we describe the impact of key physical and chemical(More)
Immobilization of prostaglandin-H-synthetase (EC of the microsomal fraction of ram vesicular gland in the microparticles of insoluble polyelectrolyte complexes by non-covalent incorporation was studied. It was shown that immobilization occurs with a high efficiency and high activity yield (40-70%). Non-specific reversible inhibition of the enzyme(More)
Phase separations in aqueous solutions of non-specifically assembled polymers lead to microstructures that may serve as a model of prebiotic organization (Gladilin et a!~ A hypothesis has been made that organic microfossils from the early Precambrian could represent the remnants of prebiotic phase-separated organic microstructures of abiogenic origin(Fox(More)
A method for separation and chain length determination of oligo- and polynucleotides by high-performance anion-exchange chromatography was developed, which allows resolution of individual fragments according to their chain length n, up to n approximately 10 by linear gradient of sodium chloride and up to n approximately 30 by an hyperbolic gradient of this(More)
The components of an HPLC system can be easily reassembled into an instrument for transient-state enzyme kinetic experiments based on the continuous-flow technique. The scheme of reassembly, operation and data evaluation is described in detail for the Pharmacia FPLC system. The working quality of the suggested scheme was tested using a well-studied process(More)
Since the membrane-like structures are believed to start very early in evolution it may be plausible from the point of view of the origin of bioenergetics and other mechanisms associated with the biological membranes to study the interaction of the model membrane systems with such compounds which might participate in pre-biotic evolution. Proteinoids(More)
The possibility of using liposomes containing an indicator composition (dye or fluorophor) for the determination of the eliminative activity of the system of mononuclear phagocytes (SMP) was studied. Liposomes were obtained by the sonication of the suspension of lecithin, cholesterol and an indicator substance. The rate of the elimination of liposomes from(More)
