Purpose. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ability of long-circulating PEGylated cyanoacrylate nanoparticles to diffuse into the brain tissue. Methods. Biodistribution profiles and brain concentrations of [14C]-radiolabeled PEG-PHDCA, polysorbate 80 or poloxamine 908-coated PHDCA nanoparticles, and uncoated PHDCA nanoparticles were determined by(More)
A new case of pseudo-diastrophic dysplasia in a boy born to consanguineous parents is reported. The patient developed neurologic (hydrocephalus) and respiratory anomalies and died at the age of 11 months of an unknown cause. Features that distinguish this chondrodysplasia from diastrophic dysplasia include decreased height of vertebral bodies and anomalies(More)
To assess the oxidative metabolism of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) isomers, rats were force-fed 1.5–2.6 MBq of [1-14C]-linoleic acid (9c,12c-18∶2),-rumenic acid (9c,11t-18∶2), or-10trans, 12cis-18∶2 (10t, 12c-18∶2), and 14CO2 production was monitored for 24 h. The animals were then necropsied and the radioactivity determined in different tissues. Both CLA(More)
A strategy is described to raise high-affinity antibodies directed against the organophosphorus nerve agent VX [O-ethyl S-(2(diisopropylamino)ethyl)methyl phosponothionate]. Ten chemical derivatives of VX (haptens) have been synthesized. Their structures differ principally from VX structure by substitution of S-atom by an O-atom or CH2-group and by(More)
Limb immobilization or confinement to bed results in a severe atrophy and weakness of lower leg muscles. Full recovery of muscle strength and physical function is rare and may impact the patient’s outcome. Studies performed on rodents have demonstrated that the deleterious structural and functional adaptations which occur during muscle deconditioning can be(More)
We report the structural, optical and gas sensing properties of prepared pure and Gd doped ZnO nanoparticles through solgel method at moderate temperature. Structural studies are carried out by X-ray diffraction method confirms hexagonal wurtzite structure and doping induced changes in lattice parameters is observed. Optical absorption spectral studies(More)
