The development of simple flow injection analysis tandem mass spectrometric methods for the cutaneous determination of peptide-modified cationic gemini surfactants used as gene delivery vectors.
Diquaternary ammonium gemini surfactants are a class of non-viral gene delivery vectors, primarily studied for their dermal applications. However, their biological fate has rarely been investigated. In this work, we developed ...
Comparative analysis of creatinine and osmolality as urine normalization strategies in targeted metabolomics for the differential diagnosis of asthma and COPD
(Springer Link, 2018-09-01)
Introduction Urine is an ideal matrix for metabolomics investigation due to its non-invasive nature of collection and its rich metabolite content. Despite the advancements in mass spectrometry and 1H-NMR platforms in urine ...
The determination of gemini surfactants used as gene delivery agents in cellular matrix using validated tandem mass spectrometric method
A simple, reliable flow injection analysis (FIA)-tandem mass spectrometric (MS/MS) method was developed for the determination of gemini surfactants, designated as 16-3-16, 16(Py)-S-2-S-(Py)16 and 16-7N(GK)-16, as gene ...
Development and Characterization of Liposomal Formulations Containing Phytosterols Extracted from Canola Oil Deodorizer Distillate along with Tocopherols as Food Additives
Phytosterols are plant sterols recommended as adjuvant therapy for hypercholesterolemia and tocopherols are well-established anti-oxidants. However, thermo-sensitivity, lipophilicity and formulation-dependent efficacy bring ...
