Although the H2 subclass of histamine receptor has been revealed by classical pharmacological approaches, the direct identification of this adenylate cyclase-linked receptor has, despite much effort, remained elusive. Initial studies using 3H-metiamide and 3H-histamine and, subsequently, work from our own laboratory and others using 3H-cimetidine and(More)
A specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay (R.I.A.) has been developed which makes possible the determination of serum or plasma trypsin concentrations despite the presence of trypsin inhibitors, which have invaldiated previously available enzymatic techniques. The assay was most precise at about 300 microng trypsin standard Ag5 per litre of serum, a value(More)
High Throughput Screening (HTS) is a successful strategy for finding hits and leads that have the opportunity to be converted into drugs. In this paper we highlight novel computational methods used to select compounds to build a new screening file at Pfizer and the analytical methods we used to assess their quality. We also introduce the novel concept of(More)
The screening files of many large companies, including Pfizer, have grown considerably due to internal chemistry efforts, company mergers and acquisitions, external contracted synthesis, or compound purchase schemes. In order to screen the targets of interest in a cost-effective fashion, we devised an easy-to-assemble, plate-based diversity subset (PBDS)(More)
Introduction In 2010 a care bundle was introduced by the Department of Health (DH) to reduce surgical site infections (SSIs) in England. To date, use of the care bundle has not been evaluated despite incorporating interventions with resource implications. The aim of this study was to evaluate the DH SSI care bundle in open colorectal surgery. Methods A(More)
