Effects of Single Injection of Local Anesthetic Agents on Intervertebral Disc Degeneration: Ex Vivo and LongTerm In Vivo Experimental Study
"... Background: Analgesic discography (discoblock) can be used to diagnose or treat discogenic low back pain by injecting a small amount of local anesthetics. However, recent in vitro studies have revealed cytotoxic effects of local anesthetics on intervertebral disc (IVD) cells. Here we aimed to invest ..."

% lidocaine or 0.5 % bupivacaine). Nucleus pulposus (NP) cell death was measured using confocal microscopy. Histological and TUNEL assays were performed. For in vivo study, each local anesthetic was injected into rabbit lumbar IVDs under a fluoroscope. Six or 12 months after the injection, each IVD
Research Article InsulinLoaded Nanoparticles Based on NTrimethyl Chitosan: In Vitro (Caco2 Model) and Ex Vivo (Excised Rat Jejunum, Duodenum, and Ileum) Evaluation of Penetration Enhancement Properties
, 2010
"... Abstract. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the penetration enhancement properties of nanoparticles (NP) based on Ntrimethyl chitosan (TMC 35 % quaternization degree) loaded with insulin. The permeation performances of TMC NP were compared with those of chitosan (CS) NP and also with TMC and CS ..."

and CS solutions. To estimate the mechanism of penetration enhancement, two different approaches have been taken into account: an in vitro study (Caco2 cells) and an ex vivo study (excised rat duodenum, jejunum, and ileum). Insulinloaded CS and TMC NP had dimensions of about 250 nm and had high yield
The nitrogen and phosphorus dependence of algal biomass in lakes: an empirical and theoretical analysis
 Limnol. Oceanogr
, 1982
"... An analysis of mean growing season concentrations of chlorophyll, total phosphorus (TP), and total nitrogen (TN) in 228 north latitude lakes confirms previous observations that chlorophyll yield is dependent both on the phosphorus concentration and on the TN:TP ratio. Of two modified chlorophyll mo ..."

models which depend explicitly on both nitrogen and phosphorus developed and tested, one, a multiple regression model, appears to greatly reduce the error of chlorophyll prediction in lakes. A theoretical framework is presented which provides an explanation for the observed effects of N:P ratios
Physicochemical parameters associated with nanoparticle formation in the saltingout, emulsificationdiffusion, and nanoprecipitation
"... Purpose. The aim of this work was to relate the physicochemical properties of the aqueous and organic phases used for nanoparticle (NP) preparation to the formation of NP produced by saltingout, emulsificationdiffusion, and nanoprecipitation. Methods. Methacrylic acid copolymer and poly(vinyl alco ..."

NP characteristics such as particle mean size, residual surfactant, suspendability in water after freezedrying, and morphology were explained in terms of these properties. For nanoprecipitation, NP formation was analyzed considering the diffusionstranding phenom
ON THE FUNCTIONAL CLT FOR PARTIAL SUMS OF TRUNCATED BOUNDED FROM BELOW RANDOM VARIABLES
"... Abstract. Let {X,Xi}i≥1 be i.i.d. bounded from below continuous random variables, EX  < ∞, EX2 = ∞, and {bn}n≥1 be a sequence of increasing positive numbers. When X belongs to the Feller class and bn is such that nP X> bn ..."

Individual and synergistic effects of rabbit granulocyte proteins
 J. Clin. Invest. 94:672
, 1994
"... Affinity purification of crude acid extracts of rabbit polymorphonuclear leukocytes using Escherichia coli (J5) as adsorbent yields the bactericidal/permeabilityincreasing protein (BPI), two 15kD species (pl5s), and the two most potent (cationic) defensin species (neutrophil peptides [NP]1 and ..."

On Two Techniques of Combining Branching and Treewidth
 ALGORITHMICA (2009) 54: 181–207
, 2009
"... Branch & Reduce and dynamic programming on graphs of bounded treewidth are among the most common and powerful techniques used in the design of moderately exponential time exact algorithms for NP hard problems. In this paper we discuss the efficiency of simple algorithms based on combinations o ..."

Automatic Reductions from PH into STRIPS or How to Generate Short Problems with Very Long Solutions
