Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is emerging as a powerful tool for elucidating genetic information for a wide range of applications. Unfortunately, the surging popularity of NGS has not yet been accompanied by an improvement in automated techniques for preparing formatted sequencing libraries. To address this challenge, we have developed a prototype(More)
In 11 isolated dog lung lobes, we studied the size distribution of recruited alveolar volumes that become available for gas exchange during inflation from the collapsed state. Three catheters were wedged into 2-mm-diameter airways at total lung capacity. Small-amplitude pseudorandom pressure oscillations between 1 and 47 Hz were led into the catheters, and(More)
Emerging evidence indicates that mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) blockade reduces the risk of cardiovascular events beyond those predicted by its blood pressure-lowering actions; however, the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. To investigate whether protection elicited by MR blockade is through attenuation of vascular apoptosis and injury, independently(More)
We demonstrate a new method for joining thermoplastic surfaces to produce microfluidic devices. The method takes advantage of the sharply defined permeation boundary of case-II diffusion to generate dimensionally controlled, activated bonding layers at the surfaces being joined. The technique is capable of producing bonds that exhibit cohesive failure,(More)
Candesartan cilexetil (CC), an ester prodrug of candesartan, is BCS class II drug with extremely low aqueous solubility limiting its oral bioavailability. The present research aimed to develop a nanocrystalline formulation of CC with improved saturation solubility in gastrointestinal fluids and thereby, exhibiting enhanced oral bioavailability. CC(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of a fixed-dose combination (FDC) of tramadol and diclofenac versus a standard approved FDC of tramadol and paracetamol, in patients with acute moderate to severe pain. METHODS A total of 204 patients with moderate to severe pain due to acute musculoskeletal conditions (n=52), acute flare of(More)
Latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis exhibits metabolic pathways different from normal bacilli. Mycobacteria undergo metabolic shift leading to alteration in expression of vital cell proteins like catalase, urease etc., during nutrient starvation conditions. In this study, we determined the activity of catalase and urease in nutrient starved cultures. It was(More)
Advances in molecular biology, microfluidics, and laboratory automation continue to expand the accessibility and applicability of these methods beyond the confines of conventional, centralized laboratory facilities and into point of use roles in clinical, military, forensic, and field-deployed applications. As a result, there is a growing need to adapt the(More)
The aim of the present study is to increase the saturation solubility and oral bioavailability of olmesartan medoxomil (OLM) using nano-sized crystals produced using a combination of antisolvent precipitation and high-shear homogenization. A response surface design comprising 46 runs was used to optimize the OLM nanocrystal formulation. The optimized(More)
Radio-frequency coil is the core component used in the detection of nuclear magnetic resonance signal. Usually the radio frequency coil is designed for operation on a specific magnetic field strength based magnetic resonance imaging system. This paper describe the method of implementing a hexagonal surface type receive only radio frequency coil which has(More)
