Based on this study, in concert with over 30 other publications, Mon810 cultivation was banned in Germany in 2009. This triggered two commentaries and one(More)
The objective of this study was to examine differences in plasma alpha-tocopherol concentrations after oral administration of pharmacologic doses of vitamin E to normal healthy subjects as RRR-alpha-tocopheryl glycol 1000 succinate (TPGS; water-miscible form) and RRR-alpha-tocopheryl acetate (TA; fat-soluble form). The study was designed to evaluate the(More)
A rapid, sensitive procedure for the analysis of Oltipraz in serum and urine using high-performance liquid chromatography was developed. The proposed method illustrates recovery of Oltipraz from biological fluids was greater than 80%. Detection and separation of Oltipraz required as little as 1 ml of serum or urine. Oltipraz was detectable when 2 ng or more(More)
