We developed a highly sensitive assay for estrone and 17 beta-estradiol in serum. Estrone and 17 beta-estradiol, obtained by solid-phase extraction using a Sep pak tC18 cartridge, were purified by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Quantitation of estrone and 17 beta-estradiol were carried out by radioimmunoassay. Not insignificantly, this… (More)
Rapid and slow inactivators of isoniazid are homozygotes, and intermediate inactivators are heterozygotes. There is no dominance between the two alleles. The chasm between Eskimos and Caucasians in isoniazid metabolism is bridged by our investigation of the races in the Far East.
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to evaluate standard reference material (SRM) 1955 commutability as a reference material for serum folate using automated methods. We also designed so as to reduce the intermethod variability present in different automated methods. METHODS Using a microbiological assay related to the 'information value' of SRM… (More)
OBJECTIVE While type 1 programmed cell death (apoptosis) of T cells leads to immunosuppression in sepsis, a crosstalk between apoptosis and autophagy (type 2 programmed cell death) has not been shown. The aim of this study is to elucidate the details of the interaction between autophagy and immunosuppression. DESIGN Laboratory investigation in the murine… (More)
