Although almost always a benign, self-limiting disease, infectious mononucleosis accounts for considerable symptomatic illness in the young athlete and can, on occasion, be truly life-threatening. Recognition of the syndrome "glandular fever," vis-a-vis infectious mononucleosis--fever, pharyngitis, lymphadenopathy, and splenomegaly, with characteristic(More)
We compared the alpha/beta interferon (IFN-alpha/beta) sensitivities of the TC-83 vaccine strain and 24 enzootic and epizootic Venezuelan equine encephalitis (VEE) isolates. The IFN-resistant or -sensitive phenotype correlated well with epizootic or enzootic potential. IFN-alpha/beta resistance of Trinidad donkey (TRD) virus correlated with virulence(More)
A series of imidazolium perrhenates with different substituents at the imidazolium ring were synthesised and characterised, including single crystal X-ray diffraction. The effect of the substitution pattern on the state of aggregation of the compounds, the charge delocalisation and the ion pairing interaction via hydrogen bonds was studied. Particularly the(More)
Hydrophobic imidazolium-based ionic liquids (IL) act as catalysts for the epoxidation of unfunctionalized olefins in water using hydrogen peroxide as oxidant. Although the catalysts are insoluble in both the substrate and in water, surprisingly, they are very well soluble in aqueous H2 O2 solution, owing to perrhenate-H2 O2 interactions. Even more(More)
Epoxidations are of high relevance in many organic syntheses, both in industry and academia. In this personal account, the development of rhenium, molybdenum, and iron complexes in molecular epoxidation catalysis is presented. Methyltrioxorhenium (MTO) is the benchmark catalyst for these reactions, with a thoroughly investigated mechanism and reactivity(More)
Netilmicin, the 1-N-ethyl derivative of sisomicin, is a new aminoglycoside antibiotic that was recently marketed in the United States. Its role in therapeutics is not yet established. The pharmacokinetic profile of netilmicin is very similar to that of gentamicin. Its antimicrobial spectrum and clinical efficacy is similar to that of gentamicin, tobramycin(More)
