Absorption of the nerve agent VX (O-ethyl-S-[2(di-isopropylamino)ethyl] methyl phosphonothioate) through pig, human and guinea pig skin in vitro
The physico-chemical properties of VX make the skin the most likely route of absorption into the human body. The development of effective medical countermeasures against such percutaneous threat agents relies on the use ...
Psychotherapists’ theoretical orientations as elaborative choices.

Occurrence and variability of Potato yellow vein virus in three departments of Colombia
Potato yellow vein virus (PYVV) causes dramatic yield reductions in potatoes in Andean countries, particularly Colombia. We tested 250 potato leaf samples suspectedly infected with PYVV from three Colombian Departments and ...
Exploitation of immunofluorescence for the quantification and characterization of small numbers of Pasteuria endospores
The Pasteuria group of endospore-forming bacteria has been studied as a biocontrol agent of plant-parasitic nematodes. Techniques have been developed for its detection and quantification in soil samples, and these mainly ...
The reaction of flavonoid metabolites with peroxynitrite
There is much interest in the bioactivity of in vivo flavonoid metabolites. We report for the first time the hierarchy of reactivity of flavonoid metabolites with peroxynitrite and characterise novel reaction products. ...
An investigation into the in vivo performance variability of pH responsive polymers for ileo-colonic drug delivery using gamma scintigraphy in humans
Gastrointestinal performance of tablets coated with pH responsive acrylic polymers (Eudragit) was investigated in human volunteers. Tablet cores were coated with Eudragit S dissolved in ethanol (organic), Eudragit S aqueous ...
Development and uptake of a scheme for predicting risk of severe light leaf spot on oilseed rape
To reduce reliance on fungicides for disease control on oilseed rape, Decision Support Systems (DSS) are being developed to guide fungicide applications as part of an integrated pest and disease management strategy. This ...
In 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine-treated primates, the selective 5-hydroxytryptamine 1a agonist (R)-(+)-8-OHDPAT inhibits levodopa-induced dyskinesia but only with\increased motor disability
5-Hydroxytryptamine 1a (5-HT1a) receptor agonists, such as sarizotan and tandospirone, are reported to reduce levodopainduced dyskinesia in 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated macaques and in ...
Synthesis of genomic and subgenomic RNAs by a membrane-bound RNA-dependent RNA polymerase isolated from oat plants infected with cereal yellow dwarf virus
A membrane-bound RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) complex was isolated by differential sedimentation from oat plants infected with cereal yellow dwarf virus (CYDV). When incubated with P-32-labelled UTP, unlabelled ATP, ...
Amanicadol, a pimarane-type diterpene from Phlomis amanica Vierch
Fractionation of the methanol extract of Phlomis amanica resulted in the isolation of a new pimarane type diterpene, amanicadol (1), together with the known glycosides lamiide, verbascoside (= acteoside), syringaresinol-4-O-β- ...
