An evaluation of dextranomer as a cleansing agent in the treatment of the postphlebitic stasis ulcer
Recent reports in the literature have indicated that dextranomer (Debrisan; Adcock-Ingram) is an effective cleansing agent for the secreting wound. To evaluate its possible use in the initial cleansing of the infected ...
Analysis of vitamin B6 vitamers in plasma by cation-exchange high-performance liquid chromatography
The aims of the present study were to evaluate the cation-exchange HPLC assay published by Coburn and Mahuren using 4'-deoxypyridoxine 5'-phosphate as an internal standard, to compare the accuracy of this method of pyridoxal ...
Human serum amyloid A protein. Behaviour in aqueous and urea-containing solutions and antibody production
Human serum amyloid A protein (apo-SAA) can be prepared by gel filtration of delipidated acute-phase high-density lipoprotein in the presence of urea. The resultant apo-SAA is soluble (>90% solubility) in a wide range of ...
Phosphorylation of human serum amyloid A protein by protein kinase C
Monokine-induced hepatic secretion of serum amyloid A protein (apo-SAA), an acute-phase reactant, is followed by rapid association with high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in plasma. Plasma clearance of apo-SAA is more rapid ...
Increased intracellular Ca2+ is necessary for maximal expression of the proto-oncogene c-jun in the Jurkat T-cell line
The time course and signal-transduction requirements for proto-oncogene c-jun expression in T-cells were investigated. Expression of c-jun mRNA was evident at 30 min after stimulation. Both the activation of Ca2+/phospho ...
A statistical comparison of three methods for the counting of human spermatozoa
