Surfactants are high production volume chemicals that are used in a wide assortment of "down-the-drain" consumer products. Wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) generally remove 85 to more than 99% of all surfactants from influents, but residual concentrations are discharged into receiving waters via wastewater treatment plant effluents. The Trinity River(More)
KINEROS (KINematic runoff and EROSion) originated in the 1960s as a distributed event-based model that conceptualizes a watershed as a cascade of overland flow model elements that flow into trapezoidal channel model elements. KINEROS was one of the first widely available watershed models that interactively coupled a finite difference approximation of the(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE We investigate adverse drug events associated with antidotes ethanol and fomepizole in methanol or ethylene glycol poisonings. An "adverse drug event" is harm associated with normal or incorrect drug use. We describe type, frequency, severity, seriousness, and onset time of adverse drug events and test the hypothesis that fomepizole results(More)
Mice homozygous for the mutation situs inversus, iv, are characterized by situs inversus in 50 percent of the individuals. We have investigated the ultrastructure and motility of tracheal cilia and sperm tails in homozygous individuals with and without situs inversus. We found no abnormalities of ciliary structure. Therefore, ciliary immotility is not an(More)
INTRODUCTION Little is known about medication errors which occur with the antidotes ethanol and fomepizole, used for treatment of methanol and ethylene glycol poisoning. Study objectives were to describe and compare the frequency, type, outcome and underlying causes of medication errors associated with ethanol and fomepizole. METHODS Patients aged ≥13(More)
The protection from malaria afforded by sickle haemoglobin (and certain other haemoglobinopathies) suggests that it may be possible to utilise a common property that their erythrocytes share with both malaria-infected erythrocytes and senescent erythrocytes to develop a vaccine. All three conditions cause clustering of a specific protein molecule, band 3,(More)
This paper's focus is prevention of sickle cell adhesion resulting from the erythrocyte's prematurely denatured hemoglobin. This denatured hemoglobin causes a molecule called band 3 to cluster on the erythrocyte's surface and adhere to the CD36 molecule located on the microvascular endothelium. Natural antibodies recognize these clusters on senescent(More)
