During June to September, 1987, there were reports that a considerable segment of the population of Kashmir Valley, India, were affected by a gastrointestinal disorder. Epidemiological investigations and laboratory based studies indicated that the outbreak was associated with the consumption of bread made from mould-damaged wheat. The disease was not age or(More)
Introduction: Emergence from anesthesia is the critical period. This early emergence period is rife with potential complications. In order to enable early detection and prompt treatment of these potential complications by the practitioner, there needs to be an effective system of detection and reporting of all adverse events occurring during the period of(More)
New water-soluble antiviral chemical agents, containing 10 to 30% of adamantane derivatives (amino-, aminopropyl-adamantane-, aminomethyl- and rimantadine), which were conjugated with polycarboxylic matrixes of the divinyl ether and maleic anhydride copolymers (DIVEMA), were developed. The polymeric drugs exhibited a low cytotoxicity (4 to 10 times less(More)
The synthesis of 2,3-trans-3,4-cis- and 2,3-trans-3,4-trans-2,3,4-triphenyltetrahydrofurans was undertaken because these compounds incorportae the essential structural features of certain 2,3-diphenyl-benzofurans and 1,2,3-triphenylalkanones reported earlier to have marked antifertility activity. The synthesis of the 2 tetrahydrofurans was achieved by the(More)
Amantadine and remantadine are known to be specific inhibitors of influenza virus growth [1 6]. However, they are toxic, and resistance of the virus to them rapidly develops. We developed the principles of molecular construction for and synthesized polymeric anti-influenza compounds of a new generation devoid of the above drawbacks. Water-soluble polymers(More)
