The latencies of pain threshold to different subhypnotic doses (12.5, 25 and 50 mg kg-1) of propofol, an anaesthetic, administered intraperitoneally (i.p.) into male mice were measured using a hot plate method. The possible mechanism of pain control by propofol was also investigated through blocking beta-endorphin receptors and measuring serum level of… (More)
Epidemiology suggests that processed meat is associated with colorectal cancer risk, but few experimental studies support this association. We have shown that a model of cured meat made in a pilot workshop promotes preneoplastic lesions, mucin-depleted foci (MDF) in the colon of rats. This study had two aims: to check if real store-bought processed meats… (More)
Sameterol xinafoate is a selective β2-adrenoceptor agonist used in the treatment of some lung diseases and play a vital role in the regulation of bone mass and bone turnover. 99m Tc-salmeterol was formulated for the development of a novel potential diagnostic bone imaging agent with excellent biological properties. Factors influencing the labeling yield… (More)
Nitrite-treated meat is a reported risk factor for colon cancer. Mice that ingested sodium nitrite (NaNO2) or hot dogs (a nitrite-treated product) showed increased fecal excretion of apparent N-nitroso compounds (ANC). Here, we investigated for the first time whether rats excrete increased amounts of ANC in their urine after they are fed NaNO2 and/or hot… (More)
Induction generator is the most common generator in wind energy systems because of its simplicity, ruggedness, little maintenance, price, etc. Thus, a novel design of an Adaptive Neuro-fuzzy Inference strategy(ANFIS) for analyzing some of the parameters such as frequency, voltage, current, etc. of the induction motor is presented in this paper. Induction… (More)
In the title compound, C12H9BrN4O, the dihedral angle between the aromatic rings is 12.16 (12)°. An intra-molecular N-H⋯N hydrogen bond closes an S(5) ring. In the crystal, C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds link the mol-ecules into C(6) chains propagating in . Very weak aromatic π-π stacking [centroid-centroid separations = 3.9189 (15) and 3.9357 (15) Å] is also… (More)
The title compound, C13H12N4O2, crystallized with two independent mol-ecules (A and B) in the asymmetric unit. Mol-ecule B is planar to within 0.044 (3) Å for all non-H atoms, while mol-ecule A is slightly twisted, with a dihedral angle of 6.29 (4)° between the mean planes of the pyrazine-2-carbohydrazide and 1-(2-hy-droxy-phen-yl)ethanone moieties (r.m.s.… (More)
The title compound, C(13)H(16)FNO(4), consists of conventional, centrosymmetric carboxyl-ate dimers. These dimers form infinite polymeric chains due to inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bonding. The 2-fluoro-phenyl unit is disordered over two sets of sites with an ocupancy ratio of 0.915 (3):0.085 (3).
