Analysis of human skin emanations by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. 1. Thermal desorption of attractants for the yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) from handled glass beads.
TLDR
Cryofocusing volatiles from handled glass allowed identification of lactic acid, aliphatic fatty acids, and other polar to nonpolar compounds of moderate volatility while purge and trap allowed detection of nonPolar to moderately polar compounds of high volatility. Expand
Synergistic Attraction of Aedes aegypti (L.) to Binary Blends of L-Lactic Acid and Acetone, Dichloromethane, or Dimethyl Disulfide
TLDR
Kairomones produced by humans provide female anthropophilic mosquitoes with vital cues used in host-seeking for a blood meal and it is postulated that at least one of these synergistic blends produces mosquito attraction behavior similar to L-lactic acid and CO2. Expand
Anesthetic Properties of a Propofol Microemulsion in Dogs
TLDR
Induction with a propofol microemulsion or macroemulsion did not significantly vary with respect to vital signs, the hemogram, clotting variables, and plasma prop ofol concentrations. Expand
Selected resin acids in effluent and receiving waters derived from a bleached and unbleached kraft pulp and paper mill.
TLDR
Water samples collected on three dates at 24 sites influenced by effluent from Georgia-Pacific's Palatka Pulp and Paper Mill Operation showed that resin acid concentrations were below 20 microg/L before the confluence of Rice Creek and the St. John's River, indicating that the waters of rice Creek provide dilution or conditions conducive for degradation or sorption of these compounds.

Infrared multiple photon dissociation in the quadrupole ion trap via a multipass optical arrangement
TLDR
The design of a novel multipass optical arrangement for use with infrared multiple photon dissociation (IRMPD) in the quadrupole ion trap is presented and IRMPD of protonated bis(2-methoxyethyl)ether (diglyme) was used to characterize the performance of the multipass ring electrode. Expand
The effects of buprenorphine on fentanyl withdrawal in rats
TLDR
Buprenorphine prevents affective and somatic fentanyl withdrawal signs and is rewarding in rats previously exposed to fentanyl, but not in opioid-naïve rats, suggesting that buprenorphines may be an effective treatment for the anhedonic-state associated with fentanyl withdrawal. Expand
Feasibility of a Breath Test for Monitoring Adherence to Vaginal Administration of Antiretroviral Microbicide Gels
TLDR
It is hypothesized that ester taggants added to vaginal gels would generate exhaled alcohol and ketone metabolites and provide a “breath test” for adherence to antiretroviral vaginal gel application and this 2‐arm (vaginal and dermal) pilot study tested this hypothesis. Expand
Oral Adherence Monitoring Using a Breath Test to Supplement Highly Active Antiretroviral Therapy
TLDR
A breath test to provide definitive evidence of oral medication adherence appears technically feasible and likely factible. Expand
Novel collection method for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from dogs.
TLDR
A novel method that sampled VOCs from a dog host has the potential to identify both individuals and breeds of dogs in addition to other potential uses such as disease diagnosis. Expand
