Although biochemistry and genetics of light emission by cells have been investigated in detail, a biological role for bacterial luminescence has remained obscure for a long time. It was proposed recently that luminescence may stimulate DNA repair, but the specific mechanism of this phenomenon was not investigated. Moreover, experiments showing decreased(More)
The bioavailability of diazepam in rabbits after rectal administration of three formulations: organic-aqueous Relsed rectal solution (containing ethanol, benzyl alcohol and propylene glycol), submicron emulsion and solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN), was studied. Submicron emulsion contained MCT oil (20% w/w), egg lecithin and poloxamer; SLN were prepared with(More)
Diazepam was incorporated in lipospheres prepared by high pressure homogenization of melted Witepsol (10%) dispersed in aqueous lecithin (2.4%). Diazepam content was 0.4% and more than 98% of the dose was found to be encapsulated in the lipospheres. Although the initial mean particle size was 0.3 micron, the liposhperes agglomerated during storage and this(More)
Nitrogen removal in treatment wetlands is influenced by many factors, and the presence of electron donors (biodegradable organic matter) and electron acceptors (nitrate ions) is the main limiting one; for obtaining these conditions, multistage treatment wetlands (MTWs) are required, where an extensive nitrification can be obtained in the first stages under(More)
The retention of heavy metals at two pilot-scale treatment wetlands (TWs), consisting of two vertical flow beds (VSSF) followed by a horizontal flow bed (HSSF) was studied. The TWs received high-strength wastewater: reject waters from sewage sludge centrifugation (RW) and landfill leachate (LL). The concentrations of the metals Fe, Mn, Zn, Al, Pb, Cu, Cd,(More)
A monitoring campaign in a horizontal subsurface flow constructed wetland under the influence of transient loads of flow-rate, organic matter, nitrogen and suspended solids showed an irregular removal of COD and TSS and lower both removal efficiencies and mass removal rates than the ones observed in other studies for similar operating conditions. This(More)
The performance of three constructed wetland systems treating landfill leachate, two located in northern Poland (Szadółki near Gdańsk and Gatka near Miastko) and one in southern Sweden (Örebro), is discussed. The CWs differ in size, hydraulic regime, type of hydrophytic plants, and type of leachate pre-treatment before discharging to the CW. The CW in(More)
A quantitative fluorescence assay for 2-chloro-2'-deoxyadenosine (cladribine, leustatin, 2-CdA) in human plasma is described. The drug was isolated from plasma by ethyl acetate extraction and derivatized by a two-step procedure in which 2'-deoxyisoguanosine (2'-diG) was first prepared by UV irradiation of 2-CdA and was then treated with chloroacetaldehyde(More)
In this review is discussed a new modified assay measuring Azathioprine (AZA) and 6-Mercaptopurine (6-MP) in human plasma using spectrofluorimetric method. After completed hydrolysis of AZA to 6-MP, the last has been oxidised to Purine-6-sulphonate by two methods: using potassium chromate in the first method and potassium permanganate in the second one.(More)
The paper presents the effects of applying subsurface vertical flow constructed wetlands (SS VF) for the treatment of reject water generated in the process of aerobic sewage sludge stabilization in the biggest dairy wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Poland. Two SS VF beds were built: bed (A) with 0.65 m depth and bed (B) with 1.0 m depth, planted with(More)
