Worldwide, increasing numbers of insects have evolved resistance to a wide range of pesticides, which hampers their control in the field and, therefore, threatens agriculture. Members of the carboxylesterase and cytochrome P450 monooxygenase superfamilies are prominent candidates to confer metabolic resistance to pyrethroid insecticides. Both(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this work was to investigate systematic errors in dynamic contrast-enhanced MR perfusion studies due to peak saturation of the arterial input function (AIF) and to introduce a simple correction algorithm. METHOD Computer simulations were performed to evaluate the influence of AIF peak saturation and to demonstrate the effectiveness(More)
Xanthohumol (1), isolated from hop, was fed to rats in a dose of 1000 mg kg(-1) body weight. The faeces of the animals were collected after 24 and 48 h and analysed for metabolites of 1. Approximately 89% of the recovered flavonoid-compounds consisted of unchanged 1. Sixteen metabolites and six previously known metabolites were isolated and characterized by(More)
Data from three different sources of periodontal patients were collected and examined to find if there was a significant difference between these groups relative to the prevalence of medical problems. Data were evaluated to show if age and sex were significantly related to the existence of medical problems and to determine which problems were the most(More)
One hundred thirty-seven V.A. patients were randomized to one of three treatment groups to evaluate the efficacy of biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) ceramic in the treatment of periodontal osseous defects. This material was tested against both autogenous bone implant and open flap curettage procedures. Baseline probing attachment level, Navy plaque index,(More)
This study was undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of resorbable collagen membranes in guided tissue regeneration. The study participants were 38 adults with moderate to advanced periodontitis. Each patient had at least one Class II furcation defect which could serve as either a test or control tooth. The cases were randomized prior to selection, so(More)
The increasing resistance level of insect pest species is a major concern to agriculture worldwide. The cotton bollworm, Helicoverpa armigera, is one of the most important pest species due to being highly polyphagous, geographically widespread, and resistant towards many chemical classes of insecticides. We previously described the mechanism of fenvalerate(More)
