Eleven healthy subjects received single oral doses of placebo, 2 mg diazepam, 5 mg diazepam, and 10 mg diazepam in a randomized four-way crossover study. Plasma diazepam levels, the Digit Symbol Substitution Test (DSST), and fraction of total electroencephalographic (EEG) amplitude falling in the sigma plus beta (13 to 31 Hz) frequency range were determined(More)
An evanescent field sensor utilizing layered polymeric-inorganic composite waveguide configuration was developed in this work. The composite waveguide structure consists of a UV-imprint patterned polymer inverted rib waveguide with a Ta2O5 thin film sputter-deposited on top of the low refractive index polymer layers. The results suggest that the polymer(More)
Thin films of Yttrium Oxide, Y2O3 were deposited by reactive sputtering and reactive evaporation to determine their suitability as a host for a rare earth doped planar waveguide upconversion laser. The optical properties, structure and crystalline phase of the films were found to be dependent on the deposition method and process parameters. X-ray(More)
Bovine somatotropin (bSt) was given either orally or subcutaneously to groups of female hypophysectomized rats daily for 9 days. Ten rats per dose group were given oral dosages of 0 (buffered-water vehicle control), 40, 400, 2000, and 4000 micrograms of bSt per day. Similar groups of ten rats each received subcutaneous doses of 0 (buffered-water vehicle(More)
