A reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatographic assay for the simultaneous quantitative determination of five HIV protease inhibitors (i.e. amprenavir, indinavir, nelfinavir, ritonavir, and saquinavir) in human plasma is described. Sample pretreatment consisted of solid-phase extraction prior to ion-pair, reversed-phase high-performance liquid(More)
AP 5280 is a novel polymer-conjugated platinum anticancer agent showing promising in vitro and in vivo activity against solid tumors. The aim of this study was to develop a parenteral pharmaceutical dosage form for phase I clinical trials. AP 5280 drug substance was characterized by using a wide range of analytical techniques and showed excellent solubility(More)
To investigate the mechanisms underlying development of upright face preferences in infants, the current study measured inversion effects for faces that were spatial frequency (SF) filtered, into low SF and high SF, with the notion that different SFs are analyzed by different visual mechanisms. For comparison to faces, we used object stimuli that consisted(More)
Caffeine has been reported to have a positive and (or) a negative inotropic effect on cardiac muscle. In this study, the force-frequency and postrest characteristics of rat atrium were studied in the presence of caffeine (1.0-10 mM) to see if the interval between beats affected the response of cardiac muscle to caffeine. When stimulation frequency was 0.5(More)
Constant positive airway pressure (cPAP) is the predominant noninvasive therapy for the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). The average pressure thereby applied can be reduced by online-identification of respiratory events. Oscillatory impedance measurement as an indicator for airway patency can identify central and obstructive apneas and hypopneas.(More)
