We investigated the cause-and-effect relationship between plasma motilin levels and migrating myoelectric complexes (MMCs). Each dog was implanted with a set of eight bipolar electrodes on the small intestine. Premature phase IIIs were initiated by morphine bolus injections. Plasma samples were assayed for motilin and gastrin. All spontaneous and(More)
Data from various animal models have demonstrated significant extrapituitary effects of gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of therapeutic concentrations of leuprolide acetate on human granulosa-lutein cell steroidogenesis, fertilization, and embryo growth rates in vitro. During leuprolide(More)
To objective of this work was to study the feasibility of iontophoretic delivery of SLV 318 (7-(4-benzyl-1-piperazinyl)-2(3H)-benzoxazolone methanesulfonate) across hairless rat skin in vitro and in vivo. The effect of counter-ions and temperature were investigated for optimizing SLV 318 solubility. The effect of electrode efficiency and total current(More)
A canine model of exercise-induced asthma was used to test the hypothesis that the development of a late phase response to hyperventilation depends on the acute production of pro-inflammatory mediators. Peripheral airway resistance, reactivity to hypocapnia and aerosol histamine, and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) cell and eicosanoid content were(More)
New compact model forms for two-port and three-port symmetric inductors fabricated on silicon are discussed in this paper. These new models incorporate a frequency independent RL network that mimics the skin effect behavior of transmission lines on conductive substrates and can accurately predict the inductive behavior as well as the one-port single-ended(More)
The presence of contaminated sediment poses a barrier to essential waterway maintenance and construction in many ports and harbors, which support 95% of US foreign trade. Cost effective solutions to remediate contaminated sediments in waterways need to be applied. Capping is the least expensive remediation alternative available for marine sediments that is(More)
A wavefront sensing detector array is presented with capabilities suited towards high-order adaptive optics systems. The phase of the wavefront is sensed by modulating and synchronously sampling the fringes of a white light interferogram imaged onto the array. The nature of the modulation is characterized by a voltage signal, which is delivered as an input(More)
Rightward shifts of 50-100% of the P50 values in the oxygen dissociation curve of intracellular hemoglobin are obtained after encapsulation of inositol hexaphosphate in mouse and dog red blood cells (RBC) by electroporation. Life spans of mouse RBC-myo-inositol hexaphosphate in circulation are unchanged from the normal RBC values.
