BACKGROUND The pharmacokinetics of propofol in man is characterized by a rapid metabolic clearance linked to glucuronidation of the parent drug to form the propofol-glucuronide (PG) and sulfo- and glucuro-conjugation of hydroxylated metabolite via cytochrome P450 to produce three other conjugates. The purpose of this study was to assess the urine metabolite(More)
Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide and actual analytical techniques are restrictive in detecting it. Thus, there is still a challenge, as well as a need, for the development of quantitative non-invasive tools for the diagnosis of cancers and the follow-up care of patients. We introduce first the overall interest of electronic nose or tongue for(More)
Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5b: a novel serum marker of bone resorption. Development of a kinetic assay for band 5b tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase activity in serum. Novel serum markers of bone resorption: clinical assessment and comparison with established urinary indices. Iron transfer between purple phosphatase uteroferrin and transferrin(More)
The Authors have studied three nondepolarizing muscle relaxants widely used: pancuronium v/s atracurium and vecuronium. The Train of Four was used to detect the magnitude of the neuromuscular blockade. The intubation follows 90 minutes after administration of the drugs and for each patient the Authors valued: 1) the T1 and TR values at intubation; 2) the(More)
