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. ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Evidence for flocculation-controlled microcrystallisation of salmeterol xinafoate
The therapeutic management of pulmonary disease depends upon the efficient delivery of aerosolized drug particles with an aerodynamic diameter of 2.5–6 mm (Pritchard 2001). Particles for such aerosols are routinely produced ...
Determination of the diffusion coefficient of cyanophenol in carbosil membrane using ATR-FTIR spectroscopy
Model membranes are often used in place of human skin when evaluating dermal drug delivery systems. This is because they offer several advantages compared with human epidermis including their ready availability, uniformity ...
Sequence of RNA-dependent RNA polymerase genes provides evidence for three more distinct mitoviruses in Ophiostoma novo-ulmi isolate Ld
Three of the twelve double-stranded (ds) RNAs, dsRNAs 1a, 1b and 3b, which are located in the mitochondria of a diseased isolate, Ld, of the Dutch elm disease fungus, Ophiostoma novo-ulmi have been cDNA cloned and sequenced. ...
Postgraduate education for advanced practitioners : a novel approach to course design
Describes a new approach to developing learning to support advanced practitioner development which builds on the positive experiences of how adults learn, education theory, clinical practice and peer review
Schistosome cercarial interactions with human keratinocytes and langerhans cells
The human parasite, Schistosoma mansoni is known to modulate host immune responses in order to promote its own survival. However, studies investigating the interaction between the skin-invading cercarial stage and cells ...
