The development of a radioimmunoassay for the analysis of ZM 213,689, the major metabolite of meropenem found in the plasma and urine of rat, dog and humans, is described. The assay is rapid in order to minimise the effect of degradation of meropenem to ZM 213,689 in biological samples and has a working range of 0.08-3.5 mg l-1 (RSD < or = 15%). The(More)
A simple dynamical problem involving unilateral contact and dry friction of Coulomb type is considered as an archetype. We are concerned with the existence and uniqueness of solutions of the system with Cauchy data. In the frictionless case, it is known [Schatzman, Nonlinear Anal. Theory, Methods Appl. 2 (1978) 355–373] that pathologies of non-uniqueness(More)
An approach to the evaluation and comparison of reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography stationary phases with particular emphasis on data analysis and presentation is described. Assessment is based on the peak efficiency, asymmetry (USP tailing factor) and relative retention properties shown by 24 basic compounds having a wide range of(More)
Methods were developed to quantify a series of nine homologous 5-n-alkyl-5-ethyl barbituric acids in 15 rat tissues. Tissue homogenates were spiked with one of four multicomponent mixtures (methyl to n-propyl, n-propyl to n-pentyl, n-pentyl to n-heptyl and n-pentyl to n-nonyl). Liquid-liquid extraction was used to extract the homologues from the rat(More)
A radioimmunoassay has been developed for the analysis of ICI 215001, a carboxylic acid metabolite of ICI D7114. The level of binding and sensitivity of the assay were good in the absence of plasma. However, the addition of plasma to the incubation medium reduced the antibody binding of radiolabelled tracer (I) from 41 to 9%. This was attributed to the high(More)
The chromatography of a series of tertiary amines and the corresponding N-oxides have been studied and the Functional Group Contribution Approach used to describe retention correlations between them. Good correlations are observed between the behaviour of compounds on HPLC and with the exception of some alicyclic nitrogen compounds also on thin layer(More)
