Our aim was to study the effects of phenobarbital, phenytoin and ethosuximide on epileptic afterdischarges induced by cortical stimulation in rats. Fifteen-second series of low-frequency (8 Hz) rhythmic stimulation of the sensorimotor cortex were applied in rats with chronically implanted electrodes. Intervals between the stimulation series were at least 10(More)
Glucocorticoid drugs are commonly used in the treatment of many acute and chronic inflammatory diseases. However, application of these steroids is limited because of their physico-chemical properties, such as very low water solubility. Glucocorticoids also exhibit serious adverse side effects. Therefore, new drug delivery systems are being developed, with(More)
A new targeted intravenous conjugate of nystatin with pentaerythritol poly(ethylene glycol)ether has been prepared and characterised (NY(4)-sPEG, M=25 160). The conjugate contains a beta-d-glucopyranoside molecular switch sensitive to beta-glucosidases (E.C.3.2.1.21), which are specifically present in the enzyme outfit of fungal pathogens. The investigated(More)
A new targeting potentially intravenous conjugate Amphotericin B (AMB)-star poly(ethylene glycol) (sPEG) (M=25,160) has been synthesized and characterized. It contains a beta-d-glucopyranoside molecular switch which is sensitive to beta-glucosidases (E.C.3.2.1.21). The beta-glucosidase-catalyzed release of AMB from the polymeric carrier was proved in vitro(More)
This work describes the detection of sulphur dioxide with a piezoelectric crystal, at a resonance frequency of 9 MHz, covered with an active coating containing trioctylmethylammonium dichromate which irreversibly bonds sulphur dioxide in an oxidation-reduction reaction. The decrease in the vibration frequency of the crystal is directly proportional to the(More)
The reaction of α-amino-ω-methoxypoly(ethylene glycol) [M = 5000] or star α-amino-poly(ethylene glycol) [M = 20 000] with hemiesters of prednisolone dicarboxylic acids (succinic, glutaric, adipic, phthalic acid) has been used to prepare the corresponding conjugates. The rate of esterase catalyzed hydrolysis of the conjugates is controlled by the molecular(More)
The acylation of prednisolone 20-hydrazone with star poly(ethylene glycol) tetracarboxylic acid (M = 20,000) has been used to prepare the corresponding pH-sensitive conjugate. With α-cyclodextrin, this conjugate forms a polypseudorotaxane, which was characterised by means of (1)H NMR spectra, powder X-ray diffraction patterns and STM microscopy. The rate of(More)
