As Web service technology evolves, the idea of context-aware services gains more interest. An idea is that different sets of services will dynamically drop into the mobile users' devices depending on their contexts. To do this effectively requires location modelling and representation as well as spontaneity in downloading and executing the service interface(More)
At present, there is a dichotomy of approaches to supporting web service implementation: extending mainstream programming languages with libraries and metadata notations vs. designing new languages. While the former approach has proven suitable for interconnecting services on a simple point-to-point fashion, it turns to be unsuitable for coding concurrent,(More)
Drug adsorption studies were carried out using three charcoal-based and one resin-based hemoperfusion devices. They were the Sandev Hemocol unit, the Gambro Adsorba 300C unit unit, the Becton-Dickinson Hemodetoxifier, and the Extracorporeal Medical Specialties XR-010 Hemoperfusion column, respectively. Clearance versus time tests of up to six hours duration(More)
We studied the adsorption of fluoxetine HCl (Prozac) by Norit USP XXIII activated charcoal in vitro, in simulated gastric fluid (USP; pH 1.2), and in simulated intestinal fluid (USP; pH 7.5). The data were fitted to both Langmuir and Freundlich equations. The Langmuir Qm values (maximal adsorption capacities) for pH 1.2 and 7.5 were 0.258 and 0.330 g drug/g(More)
Experimental data on the uptake of two test drugs by powdered Amoco PX-21 and Norit A activated charcoals in stirred-batch tests indicate that the rate of uptake by the Amoco charcoal is equal to, or higher than, the uptake rate by Norit A. In contrast to the conjecture of Medema [1], the superactive Amoco charcoal is not kinetically inferior to Norit A.(More)
