The purpose of this study was to explore the application of near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to the assessment of peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD). Muscle blood flow, oxygen consumption, arterial inflow capacity, O2 resaturation, and recovery times were determined at rest, under ischemic and hyperemic conditions, and continuously during and(More)
New water-soluble bis(2-phenylazopyridine)ruthenium(II) complexes, all derivatives of the highly cytotoxic alpha-[Ru(azpy)(2)Cl(2)] (alpha denoting the coordinating pairs Cl, N(py), and N(azo) as cis, trans, cis, respectively) have been developed. The compounds 1,1-cyclobutanedicarboxylatobis(2-phenylazopyridine)ruthenium(II),(More)
Pelvic osteotomies for acetabular dysplasia include an osteotomy of the ischium. The potential anatomical hazards of three different osteotomies of the ischium were assessed by performing a triple osteotomy in a series of 8 fresh cadaver pelvises. An oblique osteotomy above the sacrospinous ligament using a posterior approach requires that the inferior(More)
Holmium-loaded PLLA microspheres are useful systems in radioembolization therapy of liver metastases because of their low density, biodegradability and favourable radiation characteristics. Neutron activated Ho-loaded microspheres showed a surprisingly low release of the relatively small holmium complex. In this paper factors responsible for this behaviour(More)
Recently, new evidence was found for the involvement of charged nitrogen-aromatic interactions in ligand-receptor binding. In this study we report two favourable orientations of a phenyl ring with respect to a R-N+(CH3)3 group, based on crystal structure statistics from the Cambridge Structural Database. In the first orientation, the phenyl ring is situated(More)
Novel as well as known 5'-N-substituted carboxamidoadenosines were prepared via new routes that provided shorter reaction times and good yields. Binding affinities were determined for rat A1 and A2A receptors and human A3 receptors. EC50 values were determined for cyclic AMP production in CHO cells expressing human A2B receptors. On all receptor subtypes(More)
Homochiral hydrogen-bonded cyclic assemblies are formed in dilute solutions of racemic supramolecular polymers based on the quadruple hydrogen bonding 2-ureido-4[1H]-pyrimidinone unit, as observed by 1H NMR and SEC experiments. Preorganization of the monomers and the combined binding strength of the eight hydrogen bonds result in a very high stability of(More)
Bifunctional 2-ureido-4[1H]-pyrimidinone (UPy) derivatives can form small cyclic oligomers as well as long supramolecular polymers in chloroform solutions using the quadruple hydrogen-bonding motif. Ring-chain equilibria of a set of supramolecular monomers containing methyl-substituted alkyl linkers between the hydrogen-bonding UPy moieties were(More)
This article describes the synthesis and binding properties of highly selective noncovalent molecular receptors 1(3).(DEB)6 and 3(3).(DEB)6 for different hydroxyl functionalized anthraquinones 2. These receptors are formed by the self-assembly of three calix[4]arene dimelamine derivative molecules (1 or 3) and six diethylbarbiturate (DEB) molecules to give(More)
Follicular Fluid-Meiosis Activating Sterol (FF-MAS) is a compound important for maturation of gametes in mammals. Therefore, it may serve as a lead compound for a novel method of contraception. We studied the Molecular Electrostatic Potential of a series of active and inactive analogues of FF-MAS. We find that double bond configurations required for(More)
