Sperm design and function are important determinants of male reproductive success and are expected to be under strong selection. The way that spermatozoa phenotypes evolve is poorly understood, because there have been few studies of the quantitative genetics of sperm. Here we show, in the zebra finch Taeniopygia guttata, an extraordinary degree of(More)
AIM To carry out a prospective study of cardiac arrest survivors to understand the qualitative features as well as incidence, and possible aetiology of near death experiences (NDEs) in this group of patients. METHOD All survivors of cardiac arrests during a 1 year period were interviewed within a week of their arrest, regarding memories of their(More)
A comparative pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic investigation was carried out on the interaction between the hypnotic midazolam and 2 different macrolide-type antibiotics, clarithromycin and azithromycin. In an open randomized crossover study of 3 phases 12 healthy volunteers received either clarithromycin (250 mg twice a day for 5 days), azithromycin(More)
The rate of loss of the sulfhydryl group, determined with the Ellman reagent, was used to derive second order rate constants for the reaction of a series of organic nitrates with a series of sulfhydryl compounds. For the organic nitrates, increases in the rate of reaction with cysteine, in general, ran parallel both with increases in pharmacological potency(More)
Fluconazole shows good penetration into the tissues and body fluids examined and a rapid equilibrium is achieved between the concentrations in the various compartments. The pharmacokinetics of fluconazole after intravenous or oral administration are proportional to the dose. This finding, together with the slow elimination of the triazole (t1/2 30 h), makes(More)
Antibody responses were measured in a volunteer infected four times with Necator americanus over a 27-month period. The main source of antigen was culture fluid in which living adult N. americanus had been maintained for several days. Antibodies to worm acetylcholinesterase and IgE antibodies were detected only with this material, but antibodies were(More)
Interestingly, computerization movements and technology diffusion from mainframes to ubiquitous computing that you really wait for now is coming. It's significant to wait for the representative and beneficial books to read. Every book that is provided in better way and utterance will be expected by many peoples.
