BACKGROUND Laminaria tents used to facilitate surgical abortion are rarely associated with significant infectious morbidity. CASE A parous woman in midpregnancy had laminaria placed in her cervix followed by a second set after 24 hours. Eight hours later, she presented with dyspnea, hives, fever, tachycardia, and hypotension. Antibiotic treatment was(More)
The ability of hydroxylated metabolites of salicylic acid to scavenge reactive oxygen species and to inhibit arachidonic acid metabolism was investigated. The tested trihydroxybenzoic acids (THBAs) were potent scavengers of hydroxyl and superoxide anion radicals produced by Fenton reaction and xanthine/xanthine oxidase system or activated macrophages(More)
Co6Al2HT hydrotalcite-like compounds were synthesized by three different methods: co-precipitation, microwaves-assisted and ultrasound-assisted methods. The mixed oxides obtained after calcination were studied by several techniques: XRD, TEM, H2-TPR and XPS. They were also tested as catalysts in the reaction of total oxidation of toluene. The(More)
The oxidative cleavage of 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (gentisic acid), presumably into maleylpyruvate in basic aqueous solution has been shown by ESR spectra of semiquinonic radicals bearing a methylenic group. One of these radicals has been unambiguously attributed to 2,4,5-trihydroxyphenylacetic acid semiquinonic radical. The formation of an hydroxylated(More)
