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 ...
The Health-Care Provider’s Perspective of Education Before Kidney Transplantation
CONTEXT: Adequate patient education is essential for preparing potential recipients for kidney transplantation. Health-care providers play a vital role in education and can identify gaps in patient understanding. OBJECTIVE: ...
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 ...
Quantitative determination of potential urine biomarkers of respiratory illnesses using new targeted metabolomic approach
The diagnosis of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be challenging due to the overlap in their clinical presentations in some patients. There is a need for a more objective clinical test that can ...
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 ...
