Magnetic resonance imaging of uveitis

Conclusions Increased uveal tract enhancement is a common finding in patients with uveitis, regardless of anatomic distribution and etiology. MRI can also further evaluate complications of uveitis and help differentiate it from masquerade syndromes.

Authors: Abdellatif AAH Abstract Numerous normal and tumors cells are well-known to express the somatostatin receptors (SSTRs) on their surface which make the receptor be useful for tumor scintigraphy. Thus, identification of SSTRs is beneficial, especially SSTR2. The somatostatin analogue, Octreotide (OCT) was chosen as a ligand, as it is known to selectively bind to SSTR2. Moreover, polyethylene glycol (PEG), 8armPEG was used as a branched PEG to provide a low non-specific cell binding and easily chemical modification. OCT, and fluorescein (Flu) were conjugated to branched PEG using a water-soluble carbodiimide (...

This article describes the simultaneous determination of bedaquiline fumarate (TMC-207) and rifabutin in human plasma by stable isotope dilution tandem mass spectrometry. The methodology was developed for an investigation of potential drug-drug interactions of the two anti-tuberculosis drugs when given together to healthy human volunteers. Use of the two drugs in combination to treat disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis is contemplated as the bacterium becomes resistant to many currently available drugs.

This has triggered significant interest in developing new pseudocapacitive materials, which utilize faradaic mechanisms to increase their energy densities. In this work, graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) and Ti3C2Tx MXene are hybridized to form a unique two-dimensional (2D) heterostructure, which delivers remarkable ps...

The fraction of ilmenite reacted and the synthesized phases thereof were discussed. The mechanism of titanium carbonitride phase formation from ilmenite was established on the basis of its phase stability in the FeTiO3 - Carbon system at 800 to 1400 °C, using FactSage 7.0TM Database and Simultaneous therma...
