This work describes a new, fast and sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of seven paraben residues including methyl paraben (MPB), ethyl paraben (EPB), propyl paraben (PPB), isopropyl paraben (iPPB), butyl paraben (BPB), isobutyl paraben (iBPB) and benzyl paraben (BzPB) in human whole blood, plasma and urine. The analytes were extracted from the biological matrices by an innovative technique, fabric phase sorptive extraction (FPSE) and subsequently analyzed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled with photo diode array detector (PDA). The separation was carried out with a Spherisorb C18 column using methanol and phosphate buffer as mobile phases. Ketoprofen was used as the internal standard (IS). The analytical method has been validated according to the International Guidelines in terms of calibration curves for each biological matrix, precision (intra and inter day), trueness, selectivity, LODs, LOQs and ruggedness. Subsequently, the performance of the analytical method was evaluated on real biological samples. The proposed innovative method allows simultaneous analysis of seven paraben residues in three different biological matrices, including whole blood, plasma and urine and therefore it is easily applicable to monitor these substances in different biological samples. Furthermore, extraction technique used in this work is fast, easy to use and in accordance with the modern green analytical chemistry (GAC) principles.

A highly purified recombinant glycoprotein form of human THYROID-STIMULATING HORMONE, produced by recombinant DNA technology comprising two non-covalently linked subunits, an alpha subunit of 92 amino acid residues containing two N-linked glycosylation sites, and a beta subunit of 118 residues containing one N-linked glycosylation site. The amino acid sequence of thyrotropin alfa is identical to that of human pituitary thyroid stimulating hormone.

DNA constructs that are composed of, at least, all elements, such as a REPLICATION ORIGIN; TELOMERE; and CENTROMERE, required for successful replication, propagation to and maintainance in progeny human cells. In addition, they are constructed to carry other sequences for analysis or gene transfer.
Philosophy based on the analysis of the individual's existence in the world which holds that human existence cannot be completely described in scientific terms. Existentialism also stresses the freedom and responsibility of the individual as well as the uniqueness of religious and ethical experiences and the analysis of subjective phenomena such as anxiety, guilt, and suffering.
