OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of calf-thigh sequential pneumatic compression devices with the effectiveness of plantar venous intermittent pneumatic compression devices in prevention of venous thrombosis after major trauma. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We evaluated 181 consecutive patients after major trauma without lower extremity injuries that(More)
Published values of the critical micelle concentration are tabulated for diblock copolymers E(m)P(n), E(m)B(n), E(m)S(n), E(m)L(n), E(m)VL(n) and E(m)CL(n), where E denotes a chain unit derived from ethylene oxide, P from propylene oxide, B from 1,2-butylene oxide, S from styrene oxide, L from dl-lactide, VL from gamma-valerolactone and CL from(More)
The micellization in dilute aqueous solution of Pluronic copolymers P123 (E21P67E21) and F127 (E98P67E98) and mixtures of the two was investigated using static and dynamic light scattering. Gelation of concentrated solutions of the two copolymers and their mixtures was studied using tube inversion and oscillatory rheometry. The two copolymers comicellized(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of selected Brij non-ionic surfactants for enhancing the solubility of poorly water-soluble drugs. Griseofulvin was selected as a model drug candidate enabling comparisons to be made with the solubilisation capacities of other poly(ethylene oxide)-based copolymers. UV/Vis and (1)H NMR spectroscopies(More)
BACKGROUND Effective heparin therapy, defined by therapeutic prolongation of the activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT), decreases the risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism. Achieving therapeutic prolongation of the APTT within 24 hours of the start of heparin therapy has proved difficult. We hypothesized that a protocol that delivered high initial(More)
Two poly(styrene oxide)-poly(ethylene oxide) (PSO-PEO) triblock copolymers with different chain lengths were analyzed as potential chemotherapeutic nanocarriers, and their ability to inhibit the P-glycoprotein (P-gp) efflux pump in a multidrug resistant (MDR) cell line were measured in order to establish possible cell-responses induced by the presence of(More)
The influence of hydrophobic-block length on solubilisation capacity was examined for micelles of E(m)B(n) copolymers (E=oxyethylene, B=oxybutylene, subscripts denote number-average block lengths in repeat units) with B-block lengths in the range of 30-76 and with E-blocks of sufficient length to ensure the formation of spherical micelles. Griseofulvin was(More)
The new paradigm of heterostructures based on two-dimensional (2D) atomic crystals has already led to the observation of exciting physical phenomena and creation of novel devices. The possibility of combining layers of different 2D materials in one stack allows unprecedented control over the electronic and optical properties of the resulting material.(More)
Intramolecular structure and intermolecular packing in crystalline molecular semiconductors should have profound effects on the charge-carrier wave function, but simple drift mobility measurements are not very sensitive to this. Here we show that differences in the Hall resistance of two soluble pentacene derivatives can be explained with different degrees(More)
