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 ...
Tioconazole in the treatment of vaginal candidosis
A 3-day treatment with tioconazole vaginal tablets (Gyno-Trosid; Pfizer) was used in 30 patients with vaginal candidosis during a prospective, mycologically controlled study. Candida yeasts were identified by microscopy ...
Inhaled and oral salbutamol: How effective in the prophylaxis of asthma?
Inhaled and oral salbutamol were compared in 12 asthmatic patients for prophylaxis in antigen induced asthma. The patients were pretreated with 0.2- and 1.0-mg doses of inhaled salbutamol and with the standard oral 4- and ...
Serum alpha-1-protease inhibitor activity and pulmonary function in young insulin-dependent diabetic subjects
Abnormalities of lung function have previously been described in patients with impaired α1-protease inhibitor (α1-PI) function and more recently in insulin-dependent diabetic subjects. This study was undertaken to test the ...
A comprehensive on-line computerised lung function screening test
An on-line computerised lung function screening test is described which prints out 22 lung function parameters and a functional diagnosis. The complete test with print-out data takes less than 8 min per patient which implies ...
α2 and β-adrenoceptor agonists modulate [3H]dopamine release from rat nucleus accumbens slices: Implications for research into depression
The modulatory effects of noradrenergic agonists on the 25 mM K+-induced release of [3H]dopamine (3H-DA) from rat brain nucleus accumbens slices was investigated, using a superfusion technique. The K+-induced release of ...
Laryngeal cyst and sudden death
Laryngeal cysts are relatively uncommon and account for about five per cent of benign laryngeal lesions. The commonest location is the epiglottis. Pathologically these lesions may be divided into epithelial, tonsillar or ...
The effect of cyclic nucleotides and protein phosphorylation on the permeability of human erythrocyte ghosts to certain cations
Preparations of human erythrocyte membranes have been made which are in the form of sealed vesicles and which behave as osmometers on suspension in solutions of simple inorganic salts. Using these preparations the permeability ...
