To date, there has been no effective therapy to counter incorporated radionuclides of strontium. In an endeavour to solve this problem, we have synthesized and evaluated various N,N'-disubstituted derivatives of 1,4,10,13-tetraoxa-7,16-diaza-cyclooctadecane(crypt and 2.2) for their ability to mobilize 85Sr2+. These ligands are water soluble and have a(More)
The study of the blood levels and tissue concentrations in mice to which 14C-benzyloxyamine hydrochloride was applied in the form of a spray and of a suspensoid aerosol evidenced the good abosrption of this pharmacon. Maximum blood levels were observed 0.5 hour after administration of the spray. When the aerosol was given, the blood levels increased(More)
The absorption and distribution of the slightly water-soluble, carbon-14-labelled 1-(2,5-dichlorophenoxy)-3-tert-butylaminopropen-2-ol hydrochloride (1) from sprays and suspension aerosols have been studied in mice. It was found that the blood level and the organ concentrations achieved with suspension aerosols were higher than those obtained with sprays.
Monoamine oxidase (MAO) plays an important role in the metabolism of neuro-transmitter biogenic amines. Its activity was determined in mouse brain and liver after exposure to different kinds of ionizing radiation and after pretreatment with a radioprotective agent. After a lethal dose of mixed neutron-gamma irradiation the MAO activity decreased in the(More)
Flow cytometry is a common approach to study invertebrate immune cells including earthworm coelomocytes. However, the link between light-scatter- and microscopy-based phenotyping remains obscured. Here we show, by means of light scatter-based cell sorting, both subpopulations (amoebocytes and eleocytes) can be physically isolated with good sort efficiency(More)
A dose dependent but not parallel decreases were observed both in SH content and catalytic activity of "free" catalytic subunit after irradiation (0-3200 Gy), while SH groups of membrane-associated adenylate cyclase were insensitive (under 3200 Gy). An initial "radioactivation" of membrane-associated enzyme was found under 800 Gy, then an inhibition above(More)
It has been reported that the aminothiol compound WR-2721 is a promising radioprotective agent and in combination with misonidazole (MISO) seems to be of therapeutic benefit. Since the radiomodification is oxygen-dependent, the actual oxygen status of cells and the surrounding media is an important factor influencing their effectiveness. Escherichia coli(More)
BACKGROUND Based on the phenotypic and functional characteristics unconventional T-lymphocytes such as invariant natural killer T (iNKT) cells and mucosal-associated invariant T (MAIT) cells link the innate and adaptive immune responses. Up to now data are scarce about their involvement in pulmonary disorders including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease(More)
