A single-compartment model is proposed to describe the pharmacokinetics of creatinine in man. Based on the information from the literature, it was estimated that the average biological half-life of creatinine in normal male adults between 20 to 39 years old is 3.85 hours. This half-life is prolonged in renal patients and becomes 77 hours when renal function(More)

We report the investigations of specific heat, thermal conductivity, as well as thermoelectric power on the charge-density-wave ~CDW! compound Lu5Ir4Si10 as a function of temperature. All thermal measurements consistently exhibit anomalous features around the CDW transition temperature To;80 K. Although the observations can be associated with the CDW(More)
We have measured the low-temperature specific heat C(T) for polycrystalline MgB(2) prepared by high pressure synthesis. C(T) below 10 K vanishes exponentially, which unambiguously indicates a fully opened superconducting energy gap. However, this gap is found to be too small to account for T(c) of MgB(2). Together with the small specific heat jump Delta(More)
A separation method is reported for particle and biochemical analysis based on affinity interactions between particle surfaces under magnetic field. In this method, magnetic particles with immunoglobulin G (IgG) or streptavidin on the surface are flowed through a separation channel to form a deposition matrix for selectively capturing nonmagnetic analytes(More)
Based on the linear single-compartment pharmacokinetic consideration of endogeneous creatinine a new equation is derived to estimate the true creatinine renal clearance and hence the renal function of a patient; By using this equation one can estimate clinically the creatinine renal clearance of a patient simply by measuring the creatinine serum levels at(More)
