Carbonic anhydrase (CA) III was demonstrated immunocytochemically in epithelium in some regions of salivary gland ducts, colon, bronchi, and male genital tract and in adipocytes, in addition to skeletal muscle and liver where the isozyme was previously localized. Basal cells beneath the submandibular gland's excretory ducts in guinea pig stained for CA III.(More)
A group of monoclonal antibodies was shown to react with glycoconjugates containing a sugar sequence--lacto-N-fucopentaose III (LNF-III)--in granulocytes and in some normal nonlymphoid cells. The antibodies including anti-Leu M1, anti-My-1, WGHS 29-1, 534F-8, and 538F-12 of the immunoglobulin M-type were used to study the biochemical properties of LNF-III(More)
Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) was utilized to determine the water content during the drying of a drug substance with Karl Fisher titration as the reference measurement. NIRS calibration models were built with Partial Least Squares (PLS) regression based on spectral region of 1822-1948 nm for samples with 1-40% (w/w) water from five batches. A standard(More)
With immunocytochemistry, we have determined distribution of sodium, potassium-adenosine triphosphatase (Na+, K+-ATPase) and of three isoenzymes of carbonic anhydrase (CA) and have shown absence of the chloride channel, Band 3 protein, in the genital tract of female rodents. Staining for Na+,K+-ATPase was strongest in the ampullary oviduct and uterine(More)
Recent advances in in situ measurement technology and automation of batch crystallizers have enabled the development of batch crystallization recipes in which the desired supersaturation profile is followed by feedback control. This paper describes a new approach for following supersaturation setpoints for antisolvent crystallizations that is easy to(More)
Rofecoxib is a highly active and selective cyclo-oxygenase II inhibitor. A stability-indicating method for the assay of rofecoxib has been developed using reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Stress testing of rofecoxib was conducted during the method development and validation. HPLC analysis of rofecoxib solutions stressed under(More)
The crystallization of Etoricoxib, a polymorphic compound, has been optimized and controlled by seeding with the desired polymorph at a moderate supersaturation condition. To enhance the process robustness, near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) has been evaluated as an inline measurement method for the concentration of Etoricoxib prior to seeding in the(More)
Optical pure (+)-(18-crown-6)-2,3,11,12-tetracarboxylic acid, a chiral crown ether, was successfully used as a chiral selector for the stereoisomeric separation of numerous real pharmaceutical compounds. Both practical and mechanistic aspects were described. Effects of chiral selector concentration under different pH values of BGE were discussed. Chiral(More)
An application of Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy equipped with an attenuated total reflectance (ATR) probe for in-line monitoring of a hydrochloride (HCl) salt formation process of 4-{1-methyl-2-piperidin-4-yl-4-[3-(trifluorometryl)phenyl]-1H-imidazol-5-yl}-N-[(1S)-1-phenylethyl]pyridine-2-amine (freebase), an active pharmaceutical(More)
The enantioselectivity of two protein chiral stationary phases, alpha1 acid glycoprotein (AGP) and ovomucoid protein (OVM) are compared. Neutral, basic and acidic pharmaceutical compounds were screened on both stationary phases. Selected parameters such as mobile phase pH, temperature, and organic modifier were varied in order to achieve chiral separations.(More)
