The purpose of this study was to identify optimal preservatives for a multidose formulation of a humanized monoclonal antibody using experimental design techniques. The effect of antimicrobial parenteral preservatives (benzyl alcohol, chlorobutanol, methyl paraben, propylparaben, phenol, and m-cresol) on protein stability was assessed using size-exclusion(More)
The pore activity of melittin and several chemically modified derivatives has been investigated using conductance measurements on planar lipid bilayers and marker release from small unilamellar vesicles. The modifications included N-terminal formylation, acetylation, succinylation and modification of the tryptophan residue. All of the compounds showed(More)
The ether lipid, 1-O-octadecyl-2-O-methyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (ET-18-OCH3), has anticancer activity, but it has serious side-effects, including hemolysis, which prevent its optimal use. We surmised if ET-18-OCH3 could be stably associated with liposomes, less free ET-18-OCH3 would be available for lytic interaction with red cells. Liposome(More)
A case-control photodynamic therapy (PDT) was studied on adenocarcinoma (AC755) in BDF1 mice. Haematoporphyrin derivative (HPD; Porphyrin Products, U.S.A.) and a Bulgarian HPD were used as photosensitizers at doses of 10 mg kg-1. An argon dye laser system with lambda em=630 nm (400 mW cm-2) was used for PDT with a total light dose of 400 J cm-2. The(More)
