“The aim of this study was to investigate the impact
of solid dispersions of polyethylene glycol 6000 (PEG 6000), using the co-precipitation method, on the in vitro solubility and intestinal absorption of praziquantel (PZQ). The solubility of PZQ in solid dispersions and physical mixtures was assessed in purified water and TC-199 buffer. The everted intestinal sac model was employed to assess, in vitro, intestinal absorption of PZQ. A significant enhancement in both in vitro solubility and intestinal absorption of PZQ was found in solid dispersions
compared to pure PZQ and physical mixtures. Epigenetic inhibitor This positive series of preliminary results showed that solid dispersion of PEG 6000 is a valuable strategy for increasing bioavallability of PZQ and could also prove useful for other poorly water-soluble drugs.”
“In IEEE-802.11-based wireless mesh networks (WMNs), unfair bandwidth sharing may arise, because the carrier sense multiple access with collision avoidance protocol is designed to provide per-station fairness only in one hop. As the hop count from a mobile client to the gateway node increases, the throughput of the node drastically decreases. In this paper, we propose a fair bandwidth allocation scheme for multiradio multichannel WMNs. This scheme JNK-IN-8 MAPK inhibitor provides fair bandwidth sharing among the nodes in a WMN, regardless of their hop distance from the gateway node. To achieve fairness, we first estimate the number of active nodes attached to each router and calculate the effective weights of routers based on the estimation. Then, we differentiate their contention window using their weights. For this method,
we derive a multihop packet collision model. The proposed scheme is fully distributed and does not require any global information. Through an extensive simulation study, we show that our scheme ensures per-node fairness without loss of the total aggregate throughput.”
“The present study was conducted to delineate whether N-glycosylation of zona pellucida (ZP) glycoproteins occurred during meiotic maturation and whether this N-glycosylation played a role in spermZP interactions of porcine cumulus denuded oocytes (DOs). After mechanical removal of cumulus cells from cumulus oocyte complexes (COCs), DOs were cultured for 44 h in in vitro maturation (IVM) culture. The experiments were carried out to determine the effects of tunicamycin, a specific N-glycosylation inhibitor, for various intervals during IVM on spermZP interactions in porcine DOs.
