Considerable evidence has accumulated to suggest that intracerebroventricular administration of enkephalinase inhibitors, which do not penetrate the blood-brain barrier, significantly attenuates opioid withdrawal syndrome. Therefore, the aim of this study was to examine the effect of intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of orally active enkephalinase(More)
In the present study a two step enzyme immuno assay (EIA) was used for the investigation of the adsorption of proteins and lipoproteins from solutions and from blood plasma onto polymer surfaces. It was found that only a small adsorption of the major blood proteins occurred from plasma. Evidence is presented that the reason for this adsorption behaviour is(More)
Pellethane 2363 80A films and tubings were chemically modified and the effect of these modifications on platelet deposition was studied. Grafting of high molecular weight poly(ethylene oxide) and graft polymerization of methoxy poly(ethylene glycol) 400 methacrylate resulted in surfaces with a good water wettability. The increased hydrophilicity of these(More)
The first enzyme immunoassay for Salmonella was reported in 1977 and since that time several enzyme-linked immuno assays (ELISAs) have been developed, using either polyclonal or monoclonal antibodies that will detect most Salmonella serotypes. Two of these kits have been declared official first status by the Association of Official Analytical Chemists(More)
Poly(vinyl alcohol)-heparin hydrogels with varying water content were synthesized for use as sensor catheter membranes. Films were cast from aqueous mixtures of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA), a photosensitive cross-linker p-diazonium diphenyl amine polymer (PA), glutaraldehyde (GA) and heparin. After drying, the films were cross-linked by successive UV(More)

The pldA gene of Escherichia coli encodes an outer membrane phospholipase A. A strain carrying the most commonly used mutant pldA allele appeared to express a correctly assembled PldA protein in the outer membrane. Nucleotide sequence analysis revealed that the only difference between the wild type and the mutant is the replacement of the serine residue in(More)
Picture this: your mobile phone is lying on your desk, close to the speaker of your computer system. A few seconds before you receive a call or SMS message on your mobile phone, the speaker makes a buzzing noise. Is this clairvoyance of the speaker? No way. Here, the wire to the speaker acts like an antenna that picks up and amplifies the signal it receives(More)
Pellethane 2363 80A catheters were modified with poly(ethylene oxide) in order to improve their blood compatibility. Contact angle measurements showed that Pellethane 2363 80A surfaces had increased wettability after this modification. The results of in vitro blood compatibility tests showed that surface modification with poly(ethylene oxide) resulted in a(More)
We have demonstrated a scanned beam deflection technique, and applied this technique to imaging the free stream of a dc arcjet plasma plume. An acousto-optic deflector sweeps a HeNe beam transverse to the jet flow direction. A transform lens and split photodiode measure angular beam deflections produced by refractive index gradients in the arcjet plume.(More)
