Tandem Mass Spectrometric Analysis of Novel Peptide-Modified Gemini Surfactants Used as Gene Delivery Vectors.
Diquaternary ammonium gemini surfactants have emerged as effective gene delivery vectors. A novel series of 11 peptide-modified compounds was synthesized, showing promising results in delivering genetic materials. The ...
Development of a validated LC- MS/MS method for the quantification of 19 endogenous asthma/COPD potential urinary biomarkers
Obstructive airways inflammatory diseases sometimes show overlapping symptoms that hinder their early and correct diagnosis. Current clinical tests are tedious and are of inadequate specificity in special population such ...
Rapid and Simple Flow Injection Analysis-Tandem Mass Spectrometric (FIA-MS/MS) Method for the Quantification of Melphalan in Lipid-Based Drug Delivery System
The use of the anticancer drug melphalan is limited due to its poor water solubility. To address such limitation, it is incorporated within a novel delivery system using β-cyclodextrin-gemini surfactants (18:1βCDg). Herein, ...
Mass spectrometric approaches for the analysis of phytosterols in biological samples.
(ACS Publications, 2017-10-23)
Plant sterols (phytosterols) are important structural components of plant cellular membranes and they play a major role during development and metabolism. They have health-associated benefits, especially in lowering blood ...
Education Before Kidney Transplantation: What Do Patients Need to Know?
CONTEXT: Poor knowledge about immunosuppressive (IS) medications remains a major problem for patients in the posttransplant setting. Therefore, more effective educational strategies in the pretransplant setting are being ...
