We compared phenological patterns of tree species of the family Bombacaceae in three seasonal forests in Mexico and Costa Rica whose dry seasons vary in duration and intensity. The objectives were to (1) determine intraspecific variation in phenology between sites in different geographic locations with different precipitation regimes, (2) compare(More)
The milk model protein, beta lactoglobulin (BLG), was encapsulated into microspheres prepared by a multiple emulsion/solvent evaporation method. The effect of the pH of the outer aqueous phase on protein encapsulation and release as well as on microsphere morphology has been investigated. At all tested pH values, the encapsulation efficiency was shown to(More)
The goal of the present paper was to optimize the encapsulation of beta-lactoglobulin (BLG) within poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microparticles prepared by the multiple emulsion solvent evaporation method. The role of the pH of the external phase and the introduction of the surfactant Tween 20, in the modulation of the entrapment and release of BLG from(More)
The tissue distribution of ampicillin entrapped in liposomes was studied in normal noninfected mice and showed that ampicillin concentrated mostly in the liver and spleen. Liposomate ampicillin was significantly more effective than free ampicillin in reducing splenic and hepatic bacterial counts in C57BL/Ka nude mice chronically infected with Listeria(More)
In this paper, we report the physico-chemical properties of negatively charged liposomes and of polyisohexylcyanoacrylate nanoparticles loaded with ampicillin. Although the carriers were of the same size (200 nm), drug-loading capacity was 20 times higher for nanoparticles than for liposomes. After freeze-drying or storage at +4 degrees C, no drug escaped(More)
