TY - JOUR. T1 - Normal free thyroxine in critical nonthyroidal illnesses measured by ultrafiltration of undiluted serum and equilibrium dialysis. AU - Surks, Martin I.. AU - Hupart, K. H.. AU - Pan, C.. AU - Shapiro, L. E.. PY - 1988. Y1 - 1988. N2 - Considerable controversy exists concerning the assessment of thyroidal state in critically ill patients with decreased serum T4 and T3 concentrations, in part because serum free T4 values are often low in such patients no matter what method of measurement is used. We developed an ultrafiltration method to measure free T4 and free T3 in undiluted serum and compared the results with those obtained using a standard equilibrium dialysis method to measure free T4 and T3. In 30 consecutive intensive care unit (ICU) patients, serum free T4 values were similar to or higher than those in 12 normal subjects by both methods in most patients and were clearly distinguishable from those in hypothyroid patients. The serum total T4 concentrations in these patients ...
It should be emphasized that the array of structures listed in Table 1 are but a point of departure. The competition dialysis method is completely general, and arrays of structures of particular interest can be designed as desired. The only limitations are that the structures be large enough to be retained by the dialysis tubing chosen for use, and that they are verified to be stable under the ionic conditions of the experiment. Essential quality control experiments to characterize nucleic acid samples were described in detail [41, 42] and include UV absorbance and circular dichroism spectroscopy, and thermal denaturation studies. Fig. 1 Schematic of the competition dialysis experiment. A schematic representation of the structures used is shown on the left. The center shows the simple experimental setup, a beaker containing the test ligand solution and the holder for the dialysis units.

The present invention provides an improved peritoneal dialysis method and system. The system comprises a single catheter that is placed in the patient, a source of dialysate, and a diatyzer in fluid communication with the source of dialysate and the catheter. The system includes a single fluid pump in fluid communication with the source of dialysate and the catheter. The single pump is capable of pumping the dialysate into and out of the patient and back to the source of dialysate. The method includes the steps of placing a single catheter in a peritoneum of the patient, providing a source of dialysate, coupling the source of dialysate in fluid communication with the catheter on a single fluid circuit, pumping the dialysate from the source of dialysate into and out of the peritoneum using a single pump in the single fluid circuit.
Specially designed with gentle sealing ridges, Universal Closures are the ideal all-purpose closure that creates a reliable seal with all membrane grades, types and thicknesses. Available in a variety of colors for easy sample identification. For best results, select a pair of closures that has a sealing width 4 to 10 mm longer than the flat width of the dialysis tubing. This assures a proper seal without membrane tearing.

abstractNote = {In vivo studies in mice injected intravenously with /sup 125/I-triiodothyronine (T-3) showed a linear relationship between the uptake of the labelled hormone by the tissue and the lipid phosphorous content of the same tissue. However, studies with /sup 125/I-thyroxine failed to show a similar relationship between the lipid phosphorous content of the organ and the uptake of radioactive hormone by the same organ. In vitro studies using equilibrium dialysis technique with isolated lipid extracts of various organs and radioactive thyroid hormones (T-3 and T-4) did not show any relation between the lipid P and the uptake of labelled hormone. On the basis of the observed discrepancy between in vivo and in vitro studies, it is postulated that an organized lipoprotein structure at the cell membrane may be responsible for the entry of the thyroid hormones ...

Abstract:This paper presents a systematic techno-economical analysis and an environmental impact evaluation of a reverse osmosis (RO) concentrate treatment process using electrodialysis (ED) in view of environmental management of brine discharges. The concentrate originates from a secondary effluent treated by RO. Without any treatment, the concentrate would have to be discharged; this is compared in this study to the costs and benefits of an effective treatment method in a pilot scale ED plant. A technical analysis was done both on lab scale and pilot scale for the determination of operational and maintenance costs for the ED installation at the required conditions of process performance and safety. Subsequently, an economical analysis was done to calculate the cost of the different parts of the ED system. It was shown that an operational cost of 0.19 EUR m−3 can be achieved, assuming that the ED concentrate is to decarbonated at pH 6.0 to prevent membrane scaling. Finally, environmental ...

Cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), and insulin resistance - a lowered level of response to insulin circulating in the blood - is an important cardiovascular risk factor in these patients. Its not clear why patients with CKD often develop insulin resistance, but the retention of compounds that are normally removed from the blood and excreted in the urine may play a role. One such compound is p-cresyl sulfate (PCS), a toxin that is produced by gut bacteria. PCS is retained in CKD patients, and it is poorly removed by most dialysis techniques.. Read more. ...

The simplest would be to cut out the band and place it in dialysis tubing, and re-electrophorese. Visualizing the band before excising will require picking the right dye and avoiding conditions that would fix the protein (methanol, acetic acid). Not sure if ponceau would work. Also, choose a low MW cut off for the tubing because SDS will denature the protein, making it easier to slither through the pores ...

Currently, numerous studies are focused on the valorisation of seawater desalination reverse osmosis brines. Electrodialysis can be used to concentrate one of the primary components (NaCI) and obtain a suitable raw material for industrial applications, such as the chlor-alkali industry. An electrodialysis pilot plant was used to evaluate the efficiency of concentrating a seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) brine under representative full-scale operational conditions covering the temperature range of a semiarid climate. The results indicate that electrodialysis is a technology that can concentrate SVVRO brines from approximately 70 to 245 g/L NaCl, achieving an additional intrinsic purification of major multivalent ions (Ca2+, Mg2+, SO42-) due to the selectivity patterns of ion exchange membranes and the ion-complexation reactions in the concentrated brines. However, minor components, such as Ni and Cu, are concentrated due to the formation of Cu and Ni complexes with chloride ions to form ...
Polymeric micelles self-assembled from cholesterol-conjugated poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) and anchored with transcriptional activator TAT peptide (TAT-PEG-b-Col) were fabricated for delivery of antibiotics across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Ciprofloxacin, which demonstrated a high bactericidal effect, was efficiently loaded into the micelles by a membrane dialysis method. The ciprofloxacin-loaded micelles were characterized via dynamic light scattering and SEM. The micelles were spherical in nature, having an average diameter of smaller than 180 nm. Sustained release of ciprofloxacin was achieved over 6 h in phosphate-buffered saline (pH 7.4) at 37°C. Confocal laser scanning microscopy reveals that the uptake of Fluorescein 5-isothiocyanate (FITC)-loaded TAT-PEG-b-Col micelles by human astrocytes was much higher than that of free FITC. Animal studies proved that these micelles crossed the BBB and entered the brain. The TAT-conjugated micelles may be used to deliver antibiotics across the BBB ...
Nanotechnology has provided the possibility of delivering drugs to specific cells using nanoparticles.[9] The overall drug consumption and side-effects may be lowered significantly by depositing the active agent in the morbid region only and in no higher dose than needed. Targeted drug delivery is intended to reduce the side effects of drugs with concomitant decreases in consumption and treatment expenses. Drug delivery focuses on maximizing bioavailability both at specific places in the body and over a period of time. This can potentially be achieved by molecular targeting by nanoengineered devices.[10][11] A benefit of using nanoscale for medical technologies is that smaller devices are less invasive and can possibly be implanted inside the body, plus biochemical reaction times are much shorter. These devices are faster and more sensitive than typical drug delivery.[12] The efficacy of drug delivery through nanomedicine is largely based upon: a) efficient encapsulation of the drugs, b) ...
Hemoglobin or hemolysate is used as an indicator for leakage detection in the dialysis membrane interface separating the sterile from the nonsterile circuitry in a recirculating peritoneal dialysis system. The indicator is dissolved in the steril dialysis fluid and is retained within the sterile circuit unless leakage occurs in the membrane. Upon rupture or other leakage in the membrane, fluid turbulance and pressure gradient cause crossflow between the sterile and nonsterile circuitry, endangering the patient with infection, peritonitis and endotoxin shock. Such crossflow is detected by the concurrent coloration caused by the mixing of hemoglobin indicator in the nosterile dialysis fluid.
Treatment of oil and gas (O&G) wastewater is a growing practice that increases water resources available for beneficial reuse. Electrodialysis (ED) is an established desalination process with the potential to remove ions from saline produced water (PW), a byproduct of O&G production. However, the current ED literature lacks studies that investigate the fate of organic contaminants during ED treatment using real PW. This work examines ion exchange membrane (IEM) fouling, system performance, and the transport of organic constituents through IEMs during ED treatment of real PW. A bench-scale ED ...
Erythrocytes, Red Blood Cells (RBCs), have been utilized as biocompatible bioreactors and drug delivery vehicles. RBCs are also used as biological carriers for drugs, enzymes, and peptides. Hypo-osmotic dialysis technique is the most commonly employed to achieve drug encapsulation in RBCs with an appropriate yield. However, the use of RBCs as carriers for fluorescence labeled sensors has not been exploited. We have been investigating the feasibility of utilizing RBCs as optical carriers for biosensors. The first step is to ensure proper encapsulation and signal capture of the fluorescent probes. Streptavidin labeled with Alexa Fluor 750 (SA-AF 750) was utilized as the probe which was then loaded into the RBCs via the hypo-osmotic dialysis technique. The loaded cells were then scanned by using a spectrometer. The excitation scan was set at 750nm. The results showed a peak signal at 775 nm which was an indication of presence of AF 750 in the RBCs. This model could be used in future work to design in vivo

Using One-Way ANOVA test and linear regression methods, the TAFO defined hydration status, but not the FO/ECW, kept a significant relationship with LAVI (p=0.03). When including age, sex, ethiology, dialysis vintage, comorbidities, dialysis technique, hypertension, biochemical parameters (Hemoglobin, Na, K, Albumin, Creatinin), and all echocardiographic measurements including valvular regurgitation and left ventricle mass index, the only confounding factors identified were lean and fat mass percentages related to total weight, and diastolic function measured by transmitral velocities ratio, but the adjusted relationship kept significant (p=0.036).. Plasma sodium was not different between the 37 patients with (136.6mEq/l; CI 95% 135.8-137.4) and 35 patients without (137.3mEq/l; IC95% 136.1-138.6) atrial dilatation (p=0.314)..

When you experience total renal (kidney) failure, your kidneys can no longer perform their usual task of filtering waste from your bloodstream. Dialysis artificially replaces your kidneys by hooking you up to a mechanism that performs kidney functions for you. A dialysis system helps to control blood pressure; removes waste, salt and extra water from your body; and maintains a safe level of bloodstream chemicals like sodium, potassium and bicarbonate. Dialysis can be performed in a hospital, in a separate dialysis unit, or at home with the proper equipment.
A blood purification system comprised of a dialysis system for purifying a patients blood and a dual-lumen catheter coupled to the dialysis system. The dual-lumen catheter is comprised of an elongated cylindrical tube having an internal diametral septum extending along the length thereof. The septum and the walls of the elongated cylindrical tube form at least three longitudinal lumens, the first and second of which have substantially semi-circular transverse cross-sections occupying the major portion of the transverse cross section of the interior of the tube, and the third lumen has a small transverse cross-section located at the intersection of one diametral end of the septum with the tube, between a pair of adjacent corners of the first and second lumens.

DNA may stick to dialysis tubing after current flow. Either reverse the electrodes and run for 15 seconds to dislodge the DNA or be careful to resuspend the DNA before removing the buffer. To resuspend DNA inside the tubing, first open one clip and carefully remove the agarose slice (which can be restained to verify elution) without losing any buffer. Then replace the clip and with your fingers, press along the length of tubing to mix the DNA with the buffer. Open the clip and remove the buffer with a pipetman. If low yields are suspected, add another 100 l 1 X buffer to the empty tubing and repeat these steps to rinse out the tubing. Final volume should be less than 600 l. If the agarose slice is much longer than 4 cm, the amount of buffer retrieved may be much more than 600 l. In this case split the DNA buffer into two or three tubes so that no tube has more than 600 l ...
