Multi-phase post-mortem CT angiography: development of a standardized protocol
TLDR
The proposed protocol for quality post-mortem CT angiography that minimizes the risk of radiological misinterpretation is easy applicable in a standardized way and yields high-quality radiologically interpretable visualization of the vascular system in post- autopsy investigations.
Research of stimulants and anabolic steroids in dietary supplements
TLDR
The research was focused on the precursors and metabolites of testosterone and nandrolone and the presence of stimulants and main anabolic steroids parent compounds.
Human growth hormone doping in sport
TLDR
The main effects of exercise on hGH production and the use and effects of rhGH in athletes are discussed, and the most promising method appears to be the direct approach utilising immunoassays.
Mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms: a study of 50 French Caucasian individuals and application to forensic casework
TLDR
The authors first established a database by analysing the mitochondrial DNA polymorphism in 50 French white Caucasian individuals, applied the analysis to different types of samples that can be found in forensic investigations and finally performed this method on two forensic cases involving the discovery of highly putrefied unidentified remains.
Testosterone and doping control
TLDR
An overview of the use of anabolic-androgenic steroids in sport and methods used in anti-doping laboratories for their detection in urine, with special emphasis on doping with testosterone, is given.
Forensic evaluation of mtDNA in a population from south west Switzerland
TLDR
This validation study proves the great usefulness and sensitivity of the mtDNA sequencing technique using nested PCR and fluorescent capillary electrophoresis, which was tested in 18 forensic cases including 69 evidence samples and 44 reference samples.
Codeine accumulation and elimination in larvae, pupae, and imago of the blowfly Lucilia sericata and effects on its development
TLDR
Results showed that a 29-h interval bias on the evaluation of the larval stage duration calculated from the larvae weight has to be considered if codeine was present in the larvae substrate, which brings new elements regarding the potential use of opiates concentrations in larvae for estimation of drug levels in human tissues.
From population- to subject-based limits of T/E ratio to detect testosterone abuse in elite sports.
TLDR
A Bayesian screening test whose T/E threshold progressively evolves from a population basis to a subject basis as the number of individual test results increases is proposed, and it is found that this screening test heightens drastically the capacity to detect testosterone abuse.
Development and validation of a gas chromatography-negative chemical ionization tandem mass spectrometry method for the determination of ethyl glucuronide in hair and its application to forensic
TLDR
The development and the validation of a method using gas chromatography-negative chemical ionization tandem mass spectrometry (GC-NCI-MS/MS) for the quantification of EtG in hair and quality controls using hair samples taken post mortem from 2 subjects with a known history of alcoholism are reported.
Evaluation of postmortem MDCT and MDCT-angiography for the investigation of sudden cardiac death related to atherosclerotic coronary artery disease
TLDR
MDCT-angiography, when correctly interpreted, is a reasonable tool to view the morphology of coronary arteries, rule out significant coronary artery stenoses, identify occlusions and direct sampling for histological examination.
