High performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) techniques for the quantification of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in human plasma have been reported in the literature, however, a low limit of detection was generally found to result in a comparatively low extraction yield. We have developed a simple, rapid and sensitive HPLC method for the measurement of 5-FU in(More)
The dynamic effect of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II) (DPP) and its aquated metabolite (DDP-OH) on a dimyristoylphosphatidylserine (DMPS) model membrane was investigated by pressure tuning vibrational spectroscopy. The native species (DDP-Cl) and the aquated species (DPP-OH) were both observed to bind to the carboxylate group of the serine as evidenced by(More)
The chemotherapeutic benefit of synergistic drug combinations and higher drug dosages has generated interest in the application of these regimens to cancer patients. A major obstacle in the application of these strategies to the treatment of cancer is the dose-limiting toxicities of drug combinations. Sodium 2-mercaptoethane-sulfonate (mesna), a(More)
