OBJECTIVE To validate the LiMAx test, a new bedside test for the determination of maximal liver function capacity based on C-methacetin kinetics. To investigate the diagnostic performance of different liver function tests and scores including the LiMAx test for the prediction of postoperative outcome after hepatectomy. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA Liver(More)
Lung is a major target for arsenic carcinogenesis in humans by both oral and inhalation routes. However, the carcinogenic mode of action of arsenicals is unknown. We investigated the effects of inorganic arsenic (iAsIII), monomethylarsonous acid (MMAIII), dimethylarsinous acid (DMAIII) and dimethylthioarsinic acid (DMTA), a sulfur containing dimethyl(More)
Today, the scenario of a well-controlled large-scale production of nanoparticles is a very important aspect in nanotechnology. The present work aims at the investigation of different engineering aspects on the production of nanoparticles using microemulsions, which lead to possible process control. Prior to the precipitation process, this study explains(More)
This publication presents a detailed experimental and theoretical study of mass transfer of triethylamine (TEA) across the n-decane/water interface. In preliminary investigations, the partition of TEA between n-decane and water is determined. Based on the experimental finding that the dissociation of TEA takes place in the aqueous and in the organic phase,(More)
