OBJECTIVE To determine patients' motivations for undergoing orthognathic surgery and their experiences of the orthodontic aspects of this treatment. DESIGN Retrospective questionnaire survey using a patient-centred measure. SETTING Thirteen National Health Service (NHS) hospital orthodontic departments. SUBJECTS Three-hundred-and-twenty-six patients(More)
Fatty acid ester surfactants, e.g., Cremophor EL and Solutol HS 15, that modulate multi-drug resistance (MDR) have been described; however, the drug potential of these preparations is unclear because of the molecular heterogeneity of these and other commercial surfactants. In previous experiments, an active but still polydisperse preparation, designated CRL(More)
In order to identify intermediates of CCl4 metabolism, whole, suitably fortified rat liver homogenates were incubated with 14CCl4 in the presence and absence of "pools" of unlabeled suspected intermediates. In the presence of NADH or NADPH, incorporation of radioactivity was rapid and substantial in CO2, lipid, protein, and the acid-soluble fraction. It was(More)
Inorganic pyrophosphatase (EC 3.6.1.1) has been purified to electrophoretic homogeneity from the soluble portion of the cytoplasm of rat Hepatoma 3924A and rat liver. It has a specific activity of 600 to 700 mumol inorganic orthophosphate liberated per min per mg protein at 25 degrees, a value in the same range as the highly purified enzymes from yeast and(More)
The metabolism of [3H]-3-methylcholanthrene (3-MC) was studied in the isolated, perfused rat liver. Following addition of 250 mug to the perfusion fluid, 3-MC disappeared rapidly. After 2 hr, approximately 34% of the radioactivity was excreted in the bile, 6% remained in the perfusate, and 60% was found in the liver. Of the liver radioactivity, 80% was(More)
In order to identify intermediates of CCI4 metabolism, whole, suitably fortified rat liver homogenates were incubated with 14CCl4 in the presence and absence of "pools" of unlabeled suspected intermediates. In the presence of NADH or NADPH, incorporation of radioactivity was rapid and substantial in CO2, lipid, protein, and the acid-soluble fraction. It was(More)
