Nine psychotic patients under continuous oral treatment with haloperidol were randomly given a test dose of 1.5-5 mg haloperidol orally and/or intravenously. Serum levels of haloperidol were determined by high performance liquid chromatography and serum concentration data obtained were submitted to pharmacokinetic analysis. The steady state concentration(More)
We developed an assay for rapid detection of rifampin resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis based on Pyrosequencing technology, involving a technique for real-time sequencing. A 180-bp region of the rpoB gene was amplified in clinical isolates of both rifampin-resistant and -susceptible M. tuberculosis. The PCR products were subjected to Pyrosequencing(More)
Individual differences in xenobiotic metabolism influence the therapeutic value of many drugs and are of major concern during the development of new drug candidates. A number of polymorphic cytochrome p450 enzymes account for a significant part of this variation. A better understanding of these genetic factors would be of value for drug development, as well(More)
We report on the experimental observation of periodic windows within the chaos of the output of a semiconductor laser that is subjected to external optical injection. Continuously sampled spectra of the slave-laser output as the injection level is increased reveal the general behavior of the system as well as features that suggest that the periodic(More)
