Due to their excellent mechanical properties, Yttria-stabilized Tetragonal Zirconia Polycrystal ceramics (Y-TZP) are used in ball heads for Total Hip Replacements. It is known that Y-TZP materials may show strength degradation due to ageing or to hydrothermal treatment. Also high wear of UHMWPE sockets coupled to steam sterilized Y-TZP ball heads after a(More)
Tetragonal zirconia polycrystal (TZP) is a new interesting ceramic for the manufacture of medical devices. Its wide use in orthopedic and odontoiatric implants was limited till now by the high chemical and radiochemical impurities of the raw materials. Purification processes now available allow to obtain high purity ceramic grade powders suitable for TZP(More)
Five acidic phenyl derivatives of the imidazo[1,2-b]pyridazine system were subjected to some tests in vivo in order to evaluate their biological activity. Antiinflammatory activity was studied by means of the carrageenin rat paw edema, whereas writhing induced in mice by acetic acid was used to assess analgesic activity. The irritative and ulcerogenic(More)
A group of ethyl esters of 2-phenylimidazo[1,2-b]pyridazine-3-carboxylic acids 3 were obtained by reaction in anhydrous ethanol of some substituted 3-aminopyridazines 1 with ethyl 2-benzoyl-2-bromoacetate 2. The acids 4 obtained via alkaline hydrolysis were tested in vivo for their antiinflammatory, analgesic and ulcerogenic actions and in vitro for their(More)
Pregnant female rats were exposed to antimony trichloride (0.1 and 1 mg/dl in their drinking water ad libitum) from the first day of pregnancy until weaning (22nd day after delivery). Pups were exposed to antimony trichloride (0.1 and 1 mg/dl in their drinking water ad libitum) from 22nd until 60th day of age. Antimony exposure did not significantly affect(More)
The anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antipyretic activities of S-(+)-2(4-fluorophenyl)-alpha-methyl-5 benzoxazole acetic acid (flunoxaprofen: Flu), a new non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, were compared with those of indomethacin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in experimental animals. Flu showed strong inhibitory activity on(More)
We have previously shown that the physiological and behavioral manifestations of emotional stress are produced when drugs impairing gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)-mediated synaptic inhibition are injected into the posterior hypothalamic nucleus in rats [Wible, J.H., Jr., F.C. Luft, and J.A. DiMicco. Am. J. Physiol. 254 (Regulatory Integrative Comp. Physiol.(More)
The syntheses of 1-(2-hydroxy-2-phenylethyl)-3,5-diphenyl-1H-pyrazole 1 by reaction of 2-hydrazino-1-phenylethanol with dibenzoylmethane, of esters 2 and 2-dialkylaminoethyl ethers 3 starting from 1 as sodium salt and acyl chlorides or 2-chloroethyldialkylamines, respectively, as well as of N,N-disubstituted(More)
