Aqueous solutions of the molluscicidal latex of Euphorbia splendens are irritant to the rabbit eye in concentrations higher than 0.35% and to the rabbit skin in concentrations higher than 0.5%. Although this irritant potential does not preclude its use as a molluscicide, special precautions are recommended for handling and application of the product and the(More)
Patients with multiple myeloma (MM) and severe renal impairment (SRI) have shorter survival than MM patients without renal failure. Although lenalidomide is a highly active drug, this immunomodulatory agent is frequently neglected in this context due to its predominant renal clearance and, consequently, an increased risk of toxicity. This risk might be(More)
An attempt was made to determine more accurately the density of molluskan populations in the Pampulha reservoir, using the quadrate method, intending to detect the fluctuation of the populations density, the habitat conditions and the possible competitive interactions among Biomphalaria tenagophila, Melanoides tuberculata, Pomacea haustrum and Biomphalaria(More)
The development of integrated multitrophic aquaculture (IMTA) systems in Spain has been rather limited so far. However, trials carried out in recent years at experimental and at small industrial scale have been very promising. One of the most encouraging experiences involves the development of seaweed farming for human consumption in combination with mussel(More)
The Level 1 Processing of SMOS transforms the data acquired by MIRAS (Microwave Imaging Radiometer with Aperture Synthesis) into geolocated TOA Brightness Temperatures, providing observation angles and additional parameters for the Level 2 Processor. Prior to SMOS launch in November 2009 the Level 1 Prototype Processor (L1PP) lead the way for specifying(More)
An optical simulator of the human eye and its application to laser dazzle events are presented. The simulator combines optical design software (ZEMAX) with a scientific programming language (MATLAB) and allows the user to implement and analyze a dazzle scenario using practical, real-world parameters. Contrary to conventional analytical glare analysis, this(More)
The in vivo pyrogen test is the main toxicological assay used in the quality control of injectable products, especially immunobiologicals. Pharmacopoeias state that, before the main test, a preliminary test must be conducted on all animals, and must follow the same conditions as the main test. The aim of this study was to determine the normal temperature(More)
Evidence that beta-myrcene (MYR) interferes with the metabolic activation of premutagens has been provided by in vitro studies. In order to determine whether MYR also interferes with the in vivo metabolism of xenobiotics, thereby modifying pharmacological responses to drugs, we investigated the effects of this monoterpene on pentobarbital (PT) sleeping time(More)
