On verifying methods for the determination of thiocyanate in biological materials, we started from the technique as described by Boxer and Rickards [5]. In different methods, the accuracy of the data obtained is affected by the deproteinization process or interfered with iron (III) ions or pyridine/benzidine, the deproteinization process being the decisive(More)
By means of fluorescence and absorption measurements the authors studied the interaction of the protein human serum albumin with relatively low concentrations (up to 5 mmol/l at the most) of thiocyanate ions. Such concentrations lead to a slight quenching of the tryptophan fluorescence in human serum albumin. The effect of thiocyanate is not due to an(More)
In vitro and in vivo experiments have been carried out to elucidate the metabolism of 2-iminothiazolidine-4-carboxylic acid (ITC). By using 35S-ITC, the formation of 35SCN as well as of 35S-containing ITC metabolites could be excluded. As compared to the findings from control animals, the serum thiocyanate levels determined in guinea-pigs after oral(More)
BACKGROUND Pain assessment by Numeric Rating Scale (NRS) is considered to be good clinical practice, but objective pain assessment is still a challenge. Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) measures cerebral tissue oxygen saturation (SctO2) that increases with cortical-neuronal activity and may provide point-of-care bedside pain monitoring. Analogous to(More)
BACKGROUND Pain assessment using a numerical rating scale (NRS) is considered good clinical practice, but objective assessment in noncommunicating patients is still a challenge. A potential solution is to monitor changes in heart rate variability transformed into the analgesia nociception index (ANI), that offers a noninvasive means of pain quantification.(More)
