Does Electrode Impedance Affect the Recording of Ocular Vestibular-Evoked Myogenic Potentials?

Background: In evoked potential testing, it is common practice to abrade the skin surface as a means of reducing and balancing electrode impedance. The effects of skin preparation and electrode impeda...

Library preparation methods for next-generation sequencing: Tone down the bias.

Next-generation sequencing (NGS) has caused a revolution in biology. NGS requires the preparation of libraries in which (fragments of) DNA or RNA molecules are fused with adapters followed by PCR ampl...

Sample preparation guidelines for two-dimensional electrophoresis.

Abstract Sample preparation is one of the key technologies for successful two-dimensional electrophoresis (2DE). Due to the great diversity of protein sample types and sources, no single sample prepar...

Efficacy of Skin Preparation in Eradicating Organisms Before Total Knee Arthroplasty.

The solution of 2% chlorhexidine gluconate and 70% isopropyl alcohol (Chloraprep) is commonly used for antiseptic skin preparation before surgery. We conducted a study to evaluate the efficacy of this...

Assessment of pregnenolone effects on alcohol intake and preference in male alcohol preferring (P) rats.

Neuroactive steroids can modulate a variety of neurobehavioral functions via the GABAergic system. This study was conducted to determine the importance of the neurosteroid pregnenolone on the regulati...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Clinical protocols used to inhibit the growth or spread of NEOPLASMS.

Vinblastine derivative with antineoplastic activity against CANCER. Major side effects are myelosuppression and neurotoxicity. Vindesine is used extensively in chemotherapy protocols (ANTINEOPLASTIC COMBINED CHEMOTHERAPY PROTOCOLS).

Substances interfering with the metabolism of ethyl alcohol, causing unpleasant side effects thought to discourage the drinking of alcoholic beverages. Alcohol deterrents are used in the treatment of alcoholism.

Phospholipids which have an alcohol moiety in ethereal linkage with a saturated or unsaturated aliphatic alcohol. They are usually derivatives of phosphoglycerols or phosphatidates. The other two alcohol groups of the glycerol backbone are usually in ester linkage. These compounds are widely distributed in animal tissues.

A carbamate derivative used as an alcohol deterrent. It is a relatively nontoxic substance when administered alone, but markedly alters the intermediary metabolism of alcohol. When alcohol is ingested after administration of disulfiram, blood acetaldehyde concentrations are increased, followed by flushing, systemic vasodilation, respiratory difficulties, nausea, hypotension, and other symptoms (acetaldehyde syndrome). It acts by inhibiting aldehyde dehydrogenase.
