We adopted a rational approach to design cationic lipids for use in formulations to deliver small interfering RNA (siRNA). Starting with the ionizable cationic lipid 1,2-dilinoleyloxy-3-dimethylaminopropane (DLinDMA), a key lipid component of stable nucleic acid lipid particles (SNALP) as a benchmark, we used the proposed in vivo mechanism of action of(More)
The 2-day conference clearly outlined the formulations of products that are being developed or are commercially available in Europe. The major difference between products in the United States and those in Europe is that US manufacturers are preparing fibrin sealant that does not contain aprotinin, epsilon amino caproic acid, or any other type of(More)
Netilmicin (Sch 20569) is a new broad-spectrum semisynthetic aminoglycoside derived from sisomicin. Netilmicin was compared to gentamicin, tobramycin, and amikacin in a variety of in vitro test systems as well as in mouse protection tests. Netilmicin was found to be similar in activity to gentamicin against aminoglycoside-susceptible strains in both in(More)
Gentamicin, sisomicin, tobramycin, and kanamycin were compared in parallel tests in vitro and in vivo against a variety of bacterial strains and species. A number of differences were seen in vitro, in particular: (i) the lower activity of kanamycin, (ii) the greater activity of tobramycin against Pseudomonas, (iii) the greater activity of gentamicin and(More)
