Metastasis of human cancer is an organ-selective process that is determined by anatomical and biological factors as well as by specific microenvironmental properties. Dissemination of visceral malignancies to the skin is rather rare and usually occurs in a later stage of the disease. Using statistical approaches, both positive (renal and lung cancers) and(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the effect of the pellet core materials isomalt, sugar, and microcrystalline cellulose on the in vitro drug release kinetics of coated sustained-release pellets as well as to evaluate the influence of different ratios of polymethacrylate copolymers exhibiting different permeability characteristics on the(More)
Pregnancy Associated Breast Cancer (PABC) manifests during pregnancy or within a year following delivery. We sought to investigate differences in management, outcome, clinical, histopathology and immunohistochemistry (IHC) characteristics of PABC and matched controls in a retrospective case control study. PABC and control patients were selected from breast(More)
An intravenous solution is a dosage forms intended for administration into the bloodstream. This route is the most rapid and the most bioavailable method of getting drugs into systemic circulation, and therefore it is also the most liable to cause adverse effects. In order to reduce the possibility of side effects and to ensure adequate clinical dosage of(More)
Human serum albumin (HSA) has attracted the most attention in the last decades as a new nanocarrier system of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) due to its biocompatibility and high binding capacity to hydrophobic drugs. Voriconazole (VCZ), an antifungal agent with low water solubility, was selected to produce albumin based nanoparticles using(More)
Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy was used to study the uptake and distribution of iron in the root of cucumber plants grown in iron-deficient modified Hoagland nutrient solution and put into iron-containing solution with 10 μM Fe citrate enriched with Fe (90%) only before harvesting. The Mössbauer spectra of the frozen roots exhibited two Fe components with(More)
Azoles have a wide spectrum antimycotic activity, but due to some derivatives exhibiting poor water solubility their parenteral administration is limited. The influence of solubilizers on the aqueous solubility of the itraconazole, ketoconazole and miconazole was investigated in order to enhance their solubility for a possible parenteral dosage form. The(More)
This study focused on the solubility enhancement and the in vivo antidotal efficacy testing of a new potential cyanide (CN) countermeasure, dimethyl trisulfide (DMTS). Various FDA approved cyclodextrins (HPβCD, RMβCD, HPγCD), cosolvents (ethanol, polyethylene glycols, propylene glycol), surfactants (cremophor EL, cremophor RH 40, sodium cholate, sodium(More)
In the last decade, new models of human intelligence have altered the theoretical landscape in psychometrics and cognitive science. In the current article, we provide an overview of key distinguishing features of these new models. Compared to 20th century models of intelligence, the new models proposed in the 21st century are unique for three primary(More)
Skin metastatization of internal cancers are rare and a few studies are available analyzing its clinicopathological features. The reported incidence of skin metastasis is influenced by two factors: the relative proportion of cancers covered by skin in the various cohorts and the large differences in the prevalences of various cancer types. Futhermore, the(More)
