bstract  Methylphenidate (Ritalin) is the most commonly prescribed psychoactive medication for children in the US where it is used for the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Methylphenidate is marketed as a racemic mixture of the d-threo and l-threo enantiomers. It is believed that the d enantiomer is responsible for the therapeutic(More)
Positron emission tomography was used to compare the pharmacokinetics of [11C]methylphenidate in the human brain with the temporal course of the subjective and cardiovascular effects observed after intravenous methylphenidate (0.5 mg/kg). Four subjects were tested twice with [11C]methylphenidate, at baseline and after methylphenidate. All subjects showed(More)
Patients who require long-term steroid use are at risk for the development of osteonecrosis. However, the risk period for developing osteonecrosis of the femoral head has not yet been defined. The authors attempted to determine the onset of osteonecrosis of the femoral head following steroid treatment. Medical record data of patients with steroid-related(More)
In this research, we present a simple and cost effective soft lithographic process to fabricate PLA scaffolds for tissue engineering. In which, the negative photoresist JSR THB-120N was spun on a glass subtract followed by conventional UV lithographic processes to fabricate the master to cast the PDMS elastomeric mold. A thin poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) layer(More)
A cost effectively method to fabricate nanopores in silicon by only using the conventional wet-etching technique is developed in this research. The main concept of the proposed method is a two-step etching process, including a premier double-sided wet etching and a succeeding track-etching. A special fixture is designed to hold the pre-etched silicon wafer(More)
