The disposition of the antipsoriatic agent, acitretin, was investigated in six healthy human volunteers who each received a single, oral 50 mg dose of [14C]acitretin (50 microCi). plasma, urine, and feces were collected for 240 hr after administration. Mean values of 20.9 and 62.6% of the administered dose were recovered in the urine and feces,(More)
Oil and gas companies trust Reverse Time Migration (RTM), the most advanced seismic imaging technique, with crucial decisions on drilling investments. The economic value of the oil reserves that require RTM to be localized is in the order of 10<sup>13</sup> dollars. But RTM requires vast computational power, which somewhat hindered its practical success.(More)
A method is described for measuring midazolam, a new anesthesia induction agent and hypnotic, and its hydroxymethyl and desmethyl metabolites in human plasma. Deuterated analogues of each compound are added to plasma as internal standards. The compounds are extracted from plasma with benzene containing 20% 1,2-dichloroethane and after removal of the(More)
Gas chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry methods were developed for quantifying nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) and nitrosoproline (NPRO) in human urine. The limits of quantitation of these methods, which utilize stable isotope analogues of NDMA and NPRO as internal standards, were 5 pg per ml for NDMA and 0.14 ng per ml for NPRO. The assays were(More)
Reverse-Time Migration (RTM) is a state-of-the-art technique in seismic acoustic imaging, because of the quality and integrity of the images it provides. Oil and gas companies trust RTM with crucial decisions on multi-million-dollar drilling investments. But RTM requires vastly more computational power than its predecessors, and this has somewhat hindered(More)
A simple, sensitive and specific assay was developed for the determination in plasma and urine of 6-(2'-chlorophenyl)-4-hydroxy-4H-imidazo[1,5-alpha] [1,4]benzodiazepine- 3-carboxamide, compound I, a mixed agonist-antagonist anxiolytic agent. A hexadeuterated analogue of the compound was added to plasma or urine as the reference standard. The titled(More)
We report the evolution of an outbreak of bovine brucellosis (Brucella abortus) in the region of Extremadura (Spain) involving more than 1000 herds and nearly 40,000 animals. S19 vaccination of young cattle combined with a test and slaughter strategy did not result in a rapid decrease in herd prevalence and animal incidence; these parameters showed a(More)
