In Vitro Dermal Absorption of Methyl Salicylate, Ethyl Parathion, and Malathion: First Responder Safety
TLDR
In vitro tests with fresh dermatomed female breast skin and one leg skin specimen were conducted in Bronaugh flow-through Teflon diffusion cells with three chemicals used to simulate chemical warfare agents, suggesting skin saturation had occurred.
A new whole-body vapor exposure chamber for protection performance research on chemical protective ensembles.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that there is no such thing as a unique protection performance level obtained for a given CPE, and the individual and the ensemble interact differently in each situation, resulting in a protection performance distribution for individuals, and for groups of wearers, even under a standardized set of exposure conditions.
An Affordable, Portable Fluorescence Imaging Device for Skin Lesion Detection Using a Dual Wavelength Approach for Image Contrast Enhancement and Aminolaevulinic Acid-induced Protoporphyrin IX. Part
TLDR
The results achieved in this study seem to allow cost-effective, contrast-enhanced imaging of skin lesions before or during photodynamic therapy using ALA induced PpIX.
In vitro studies on the potential use of 5-aminolaevulinic acid-mediated photodynamic therapy for gynaecological tumours.
TLDR
It is indicated that ALA-PDT has potential for application to therapy of gynaecological malignancies because of its apparent difference in response between multidrug-resistant ovarian carcinoma cell line and its parent line.
Determination of the in vivo pharmacokinetics of palladium-bacteriopheophorbide (WST09) in EMT6 tumour-bearing Balb/c mice using graphite furnace atomic absorption spectroscopy.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that vascular targeting resulting from WST09 in the circulation, as opposed to selective W ST09 accumulation in tumour tissues, may be responsible for PDT effects in tumours that have been observed in other WST 09 studies.
An Affordable, Portable Fluorescence Imaging Device for Skin Lesion Detection Using a Dual Wavelength Approach for Image Contrast Enhancement and Aminolaevulinic Acid-induced Protoporphyrin IX. Part
TLDR
This paper describes the excitation and detection characteristics of a fluorescence imaging device prototype, which includes spectral and spatial characteristics of the various light sources included in the device as well as specifications of the image detector used.
ON THE SOURCE OF THE OSCILLATIONS OBSERVED DURING in vivo ZINC PHTHALOCYANINE FLUORESCENCE PHARMACOKINETIC MEASUREMENTS IN MICE
TLDR
Surface‐detected fluorescence spectroscopy can be used to monitor the pharmacokinetics of uptake and clearance of red‐absorbing fluorophores such as zinc(II) phthalocyanine (ZnPc) in vivo, but it is important to be aware of the possibility of such artifactual contributions to in vivo fluorescence pharmacokinetic measurements.
