A new self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) was developed to increase the dissolution rate, solubility, and, ultimately, bioavailability of a poorly water soluble drug, idebenone. Pseudoternary phase diagrams were used to evaluate the self-microemulsification existence area, and the release rate of idebenone was investigated. The mixtures(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a potent angiogenic peptide expressed in a wide variety of tumors, and it stimulates angiogenesis and increases vascular permeability. Increased expression of VEGF may be associated with advanced stage and poor prognosis in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Using enzyme-linked(More)
Bacillus spores are protected by a structurally and biochemically complex protein shell composed of over 50 polypeptide species, called the coat. Coat assembly in Bacillus subtilis serves as a relatively tractable model for the study of the formation of more complex macromolecular structures and organelles. It is also a critical model for the discovery of(More)
The influence of polyethoxylated non-ionic surfactants on the transport of ibuprofen across rat skin was investigated. The skin permeation of ibuprofen from a series of 17 polyoxyethylene (POE) alkyl ethers containing 5% ibuprofen was determined using Franz diffusion cells fitted with excised rat skins. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and Fourier(More)
OBJECTIVE Leukotriene antagonists are increasingly used in asthma management. Pranlukast is a new, orally active, selective inhibitor of CysLt1 leukotriene receptor. The present clinical trial was performed to study the effect and safety of pranlukast in mild-to-moderate asthma. METHODOLOGY A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group(More)
Hepatomegaly is a common manifestation in Gaucher disease. In some patients with the disease, hepatic fibrosis and portal hypertension are observed. A patient with Gaucher disease with the hepatopulmonary syndrome associated with severe cyanosis and hypoxemia was examined for intrapulmonary right-to-left shunt using Tc-99m MAA. Quantitative evaluation(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to figure out whether volumetric gray-scale histogram difference between anterior and posterior cervix can indicate the extent of cervical consistency. METHODS We collected data of 95 patients who were appropriate for vaginal delivery with 36th to 37th weeks of gestational age from September 2010 to October 2011 in the Department of(More)
