The binding of six furocoumarins (angelicin, psoralen, 8-methoxypsoralen, 5-methoxypsoralen, 8-methylpsoralen, 4,5'8-trimethylpsoralen) to human serum and human serum albumin was studied by equilibrium dialysis using tritium labelled compounds. The results indicated that in serum all furocoumarins are bound mostly by albumin, the extent of binding being(More)
The ability of 8-methoxypsoralen (8-MOP) to bind human serum albumin has been investigated in vitro through equilibrium dialysis and fluorescence quenching. By means of the first technique it was observed that, at concentrations presumably close to those obtainable in vivo following its administration in the photochemotherapy of psoriasis, over 80% of 8-MOP(More)

Satellites' rendezvous and docking is a challenging problem for space exploitation. Saving time, fuel, or any other resource, expressed for example as a combination of the two previous ones, is not a straightforward task if onboard calculation is required to make the control autonomous. A direct method for a rapid generation of near-optimal trajectories of(More)
