In vivo flow 31P NMR spectroscopy of a microscopic nematode, Steinernema carpocapsae, is described. Long-term viability was maintained during analysis by continuous circulation of an oxygenated suspension of the parasite through an NMR spectrometer. Saturation transfer and inversion recovery were employed under flowing conditions to investigate the kinetics(More)
OBJECTIVE The present study compared the effectiveness of a virtual reality (VR) simulator for training phlebotomy with that of a more traditional approach using simulated limbs. BACKGROUND Phlebotomy, or drawing blood, is one of the most common medical procedures; yet, there are no universal standards for training and assessing performance. The absence(More)

Efficacy of papaw sublimate for detoxication in chronic lead intoxication. AU-KRASNJUK EP. A qualitative 31P NMR investigation on the effects of exposure to lead, cadmium, or mercury on the energetic status of the pulmonate gastropod, Biomphalaria glabrata (Say).induced anti-nucleolar autoantibodies can transgress the membrane of living cells in vivo and in(More)
Manduca sexta L. larvae exhibit broad food acceptance with regard to nutrient content during the first 3 days of the last stadium. Larvae fed diets with a constant combined level of casein and sucrose, but variable ratios, display a linear relationship between protein and carbohydrate intake. Larvae grow best on a diet with equal nutrients, but will consume(More)
31P NMR spectroscopy of a parasitic nematode. Steinernema carpocapsae, is described. In vivo spectra were generated from nematode suspensions continuously circulating through the spectrometer. By flowing the organism, saturation effects were avoided and short interpulse delays significantly reduced spectral generation time. To maximize sensitivity, 90(More)
