The present study describes a novel in vitro platform for physicochemical profiling of compounds, based on their impact on the air/water interfacial tension. Interfacial partitioning coefficient, cross-sectional area, and critical micelle concentration were derived from the Gibbs adsorption isotherms recorded for 76 structurally diverse drugs. An(More)
We report an unusual case of human babesiosis in Finland in a 53-year-old man with no history of splenectomy. He had a rudimentary spleen, coexisting Lyme borreliosis, exceptional dark streaks on his extremities, and subsequent disseminated aspergillosis. He was infected with Babesia divergens, which usually causes bovine babesiosis in Finland.
The purpose of this technical note is to show the capability to measure and characterize highly surface active compounds with low critical micelle concentrations (CMC) with Kibron’s Delta-8 multichannel microtensiometer. For this purpose eight equivalent dilution series were prepared and measured. The characteristic parameters obtained from the analysis of(More)
