WITHIN THE MODERN, HYPER-CONNECTED business landscape, organizations are constantly under attack. According to the 2005 Computer Crime and Security Survey, conducted jointly by the Computer Security Institute (CSI) and the San Francisco Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), 56% of respondents reported unauthorized computer system use during(More)
Smoking involves heating a drug to form a mixture of drug vapor and gaseous degradation products. These gases subsequently cool and condense into aerosol particles that are inhaled. Here, we demonstrate rapid and reliable systemic delivery of pure pharmaceutical compounds without degradation products through a related process that also involves inhalation(More)
A sensitive lawn-based format has been developed to screen bead-tethered combinatorial chemical libraries for antimicrobial activity. This method has been validated with beads linked to penicillin V via a photocleavable chemical linker in several analyses including a spike-and-recover experiment. The lawn-based screen sensitivity was modified to detect(More)
PURPOSE Rapid heating of thin films of pharmaceutical compounds can vaporize the molecules, which leads to formation of aerosol particles of optimal size for pulmonary drug delivery. The aim of this work was to assess the effect of coated film thickness on the purity of a thermally generated (condensation) drug aerosol. MATERIALS AND METHODS(More)
A time-resolved pulsed fluorescence immunometric assay (TR-PFIA) for carcinoembryonic antigen is described in which either Eu(III) or Tb(III) chelate is used as label. Described in detail is the assay involving the well-documented format of microtiter matrix and Eu(III) fluorescence enhanced with a beta-diketone and quantified in a commercial time-resolving(More)
