We measured by atomic absorption spectrophotometry aluminium levels in blood, urine and cerebrospinal fluid from 15 patients with Alzheimer's disease, compared with 20 control individuals. There were no statistically significant differences between the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Morphine hydrochloride, a major analgesic drug, is being increasingly administered using portable disposable infusion devices. The objective of this study was to investigate the stability of morphine in such a system at two concentrations (2.50 and 5.00 mg/ ml) over a 30-day period. METHOD High-performance liquid chromatography of(More)

The authors suggest a method for the evaluation of the urinary 5 alpha-androstane-3 alpha, 17 beta-diol (5 Ad) carried out by gas-liquid chromatography. 5-Ad is separated from its isomers, first by means of an adsorption chromatography on alumina and then by means of a high performance liquid chromatography on porous silica. The reliability criteria of the(More)
The calibration method described is based on the in situ formation of carbon monoxide in a closed system by the reaction of hot concentrated sulfuric acid with formic acid. Carbon monoxide is released from hemoglobin by treatment with 85% phosphoric acid, diluted 1:2 (v/v). Carbon monoxide is analyzed by means of headspace gas chromatography on a Porapak Q(More)
