Over the last 20 years, it has emerged that many molecular chaperones and protein-folding catalysts are secreted from cells and function, somewhat in the manner of cytokines, as pleiotropic signals for a variety of cells, with much attention being focused on the macrophage. During the last decade, it has become clear that macrophages respond to bacterial,(More)
The ventilatory pharmacodynamics of morphine sulfate (MS) in the awake dog (n = 14) were investigated. Two routes of MS administration were employed: 1) 4 h continuous intravenous (iv) infusion (1 mg.kg-1 loading dose, 10 micrograms.kg-1.min-1 thereafter); and 2) fourth ventricle to cisterna magna perfusion (VCP) at increasing infusate morphine(More)
Vitamin D was determined in commercially fortified milk, using reverse phase high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). The milk sample was saponified at room temperature and cleaned up on an alumina column to remove cholesterol and carotenes. The sample was then chromatographed in an HPLC system on a 0.26 X 25 cm ODS-HC-Sil-X-1 column using(More)
The antioxidant activity of capsaicin, as compared to BHT and melatonin, was determined by the direct measurement of lipid hydroperoxides formed upon linoleic acid autoxidation initiated by AIBN. The formation of four isomeric lipid hydroperoxides was detected after reverse-phase HPLC separation. Data from three detectors, UV absorption, glassy carbon(More)
Aeromonas strains isolated from sediments upstream and downstream of a water resource recovery facility (WRRF) over a two-year time period were tested for susceptibility to 13 antibiotics. Incidence of resistance to antibiotics, antibiotic resistance phenotypes, and diversity (based on resistance phenotypes) were compared in the two populations. At the(More)
