OBJECTIVE To determine whether renal crystals can be experimentally induced in animals fed melamine or the related triazine compound cyanuric acid, separately or in combination, and to compare experimentally induced crystals with those from a cat with triazine-related renal failure. ANIMALS 75 fish (21 tilapia, 24 rainbow trout, 15 channel catfish, and 15(More)
In this work, the interconversion of GHB and GBL in a variety of aqueous media was studied. The effects of solution pH and time were determined by spiking GHB or GBL into pure water and buffered aqueous solutions, and determining the GHB and GBL contents at various time intervals. The degree of GBL hydrolysis to GHB was determined for several commercial(More)
There is an urgent need for accurate and inexpensive handheld instruments for the evaluation of medicine quality in the field. A blinded evaluation of the diagnostic accuracy of the Counterfeit Detection Device 3 (CD-3), developed by the US Food and Drug Administration Forensic Chemistry Center, was conducted in the Lao People's Democratic Republic.

PURPOSE To evaluate a possible association between influenza vaccination and four deaths and four serious illnesses among 114 recent influenza vaccinees in a long-term care facility (LTCF) and two deaths from a nearby physician's office. All had received vaccine from the same lot (Lot A). METHODS Field investigation including (1) a retrospective cohort(More)
Capillary electrophoresis was utilized for the separation, identification, and quantitation of ten stereoisomers in the ephedrine family. Chiral discrimination was accomplished through the use of hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin, and separation was enhanced at pH 2 in the presence of tetramethylammonium chloride and sodium dodecyl sulfate. Calibration plots(More)
This paper describes a general screening method for the determination of anabolic steroids in oil-based injectables, water suspensions, dietary supplements, and herbal drugs marketed in the form of capsules or tablets. The compounds are extracted into methanol, separated on a reversed-phase column with an acetonitrile-water gradient, and detected by using(More)
A method is described for the simultaneous determination of ultratrace levels of lead and cadmium in selected agricultural crop samples by differential pulse anodic stripping voltammetry. Samples are dry ashed at high temperature with H2SO4 as an ashing aid. Techniques are described to control the lead and cadmium blank levels of 2 ng and 0.4 ng,(More)
