Inhalation and dietary exposure to Dechlorane Plus and polybrominated diphenyl ethers in Osaka, Japan.
The average daily exposure to Dechlorane Plus (DP) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) via inhalation and diet was approximately one percent of that for ΣPBDE (62 ng day(-1)). Expand
Antibiotic residue monitoring results for pork, chicken, and beef samples in Vietnam in 2012-2013.
The results suggest an appropriate withdrawal period after drug administration had not been observed in some livestock and that residual antibiotics in food of animal origin was monitored from 2012 to 2013. Expand
Monitoring of Antibiotic Residues in Aquatic Products in Urban and Rural Areas of Vietnam.
To understand the current status of antibiotic use and prevent adverse effects that may be caused by their overuse, continual monitoring is required. Expand
Simultaneous determination of 11 preservatives in cosmetics by high-performance liquid chromatography.
Because of the simple conditions for isolation and complete separation, the HPLC method can be effectively applied to the analysis of preservatives in commercially retailed cosmetics. Expand
Dechlorane Plus and decabromodiphenyl ether in atmospheric particles of northeast Asian cities
Significant correlations were found between the concentrations of ΣDP and BDE-209 in theWinter samples from Kanazawa and in both summer and winter samples from Beijing, which is assumed to reflect a common end usage and release mechanism. Expand
Anti‐MRSA activity of sophoraflavanone G and synergism with other antibacterial agents
Findings suggest that SFG in combination with VCM or FOM may be useful in controlling MRSA infections. Expand
The Release of Formaldehyde upon Decomposition of 2-Bromo-2-nitropropan-1, 3-diol (Bronopol)
We investigated the release of formaldehyde (FA) upon the decomposition of 2-bromo-2-nitropropan-1,3-diol (Bronopol: BP), an FA-releasing substance widely used as an antimicrobial preservative inExpand
Protective effect of astragali radix by oral administration against Japanese encephalitis virus infection in mice.
It is proposed that the protective effect of AE by oral administration is based on a non-specific mechanism during the early stage of infection, before shifting to antibody production, and that macrophages play an important role in this resistance to JEV infection, e.g., by inducing the production of AO.

Size Distribution of Chlorinated Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Atmospheric Particles
The particle size distribution of chlorinated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (ClPAHs) in particulate matter (PM) in Japan is examined for the first time and the result indicates that PM < 2.5 μm has the strong AhR ligand activity. Expand
Characterization of the decomposition of compounds derived from imidazolidinyl urea in cosmetics and patch test materials
This data indicates that the lowest concentration of imidazolidinyl urea found in cosmetics containing high levels of Na6(CO3)(SO4)2, Na2SO4, and Na2CO3 is effective in relation to the decomposition of formaldehyde. Expand
