BACKGROUND Little is known about the intensity of oxidative damage in human milk resulting from maternal oxidative stress. The aim of our study was to explore the changes in Total Antioxidant Status (TAS) and concentrations of antioxidative vitamins and isoprostanes (markers of oxidative stress) in human colostrum and mature milk. METHODS The study(More)
Depression is one of the most frequently occurring psychiatric conditions affecting the economic and social functioning of people all over the world. There are a few classes of drugs commonly used to treat patients with depression disorders. Therapeutic drug monitoring of antidepressants provides the possibility to reduce side effects and optimize the(More)
A simple and sensitive method using dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction (DLLME) followed by liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC-MS) with a hydrophilic interaction chromatography (HILIC) column was developed for the simultaneous determination of 13 compounds of different polarities, comprising monoamine neurotransmitters (dopamine,(More)
Quantitative structure retention relationships (QSRRs) were applied to predict reversed-phase HPLC gradient retention. The performance of the recently recommended QSRR models was compared. One tested model is based on structural descriptors from molecular modeling. To quantitatively characterize the structure of analytes the following three structural(More)
Silica-based stationary phases are commonly used in liquid chromatography, but their surface acidity causes known problems, especially when separating basic compounds. Deleterious effects of free silanols are not fully removed by standard prevention procedures consisting in adding alkylamines or other amino quenchers to the eluents. We found that ionic(More)
One of the initial steps of proteomic analysis is peptide separation. However, little information from RP-HPLC, employed for peptides separation, is utilized in proteomics. Meanwhile, prediction of the retention time for a given peptide, combined with routine MS/MS data analysis, could help to improve the confidence of peptide identifications. Recently, a(More)
In QSRR the retention is modeled as a function of structural or molecular descriptors. Since the structural datasets can be very large a selection of informative variables is often required. But beside the question which subset of variables (descriptors) produces optimum predictions one should answer the question: can good prediction be used in the QSRR(More)
The primary aim of this work was to determine the interactions of an oxindole alkaloid (mitraphylline) isolated from Uncaria tomentosa with beta-amyloid 1-40 (Abeta1-40 protein) applying the capillary electrophoresis (CE) method. Specifically the Hummel-Dreyer method and Scatchard analysis were performed to study the binding of oxindole alkaloids with(More)
Simple and sensitive liquid chromatography (LC) methods with fluorescence (FL) detection for the determination of bendamustine (BM) in human plasma and urine were developed and validated. The procedure of BM extraction from a plasma sample involved solid-phase extraction with a C18 SPE column, while liquid-liquid extraction with dichloromethane was applied(More)
Early, noninvasive diagnosis of tumors is relevant, especially for rare, often asymptomatic, thus - hard to detect in curable stages of the disease - tumors, as neuroendocrine tumors (NET). To avoid or supplement the NET management via application of invasive biopsy or expensive imagining techniques, the biochemical evaluation of biomarkers from easy(More)
