    Title The Nature of Catalyst Particles and Growth Mechanisms of Gan Nanowires Grown by Ni-assisted Metal-organic Chemical Vapor Deposition.
    Date June 2009
    Journal Nanotechnology

    The structure and chemistry of the catalyst particles that terminate GaN nanowires grown by Ni-assisted metal-organic chemical vapor deposition were investigated using a combination of electron diffraction, high-resolution transmission electron microscopy, and x-ray energy dispersive spectrometry. The crystal symmetry, lattice parameter, and chemical composition obtained reveal that the catalyst particles are Ni(3)Ga with an ordered L 1(2) structure. The results suggest that the catalyst is a solid particle during growth and therefore favor a vapor-solid-solid mechanism for the growth of GaN nanowires under these conditions.

    Title Use of Delta(13)c and Delta(15)n, and Carbon to Nitrogen Ratios to Evaluate the Impact of Sewage-derived Particulate Organic Matter on the Benthic Communities of the Southern California Bight.
    Date February 2008
    Journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry / Setac

    We measured stable isotope ratios (delta(13)C and delta(15)N) of particulate organic matter (POM) sources and benthic organic matter compartments as well as sediment C to N ratios from the coastal area of the southern end of the Southern California Bight (SCB). We used the isotopic values to evaluate the relative importance of the major POM sources to the sediment and two benthic macroinvertebrates. Application of a simple model to sediment delta(13)C values suggested that sewage-derived POM (SDPOM) supplies an average of 48% of the organic C to study area sediments. Application of a similar model to Spiophanes duplex delta(13)C values suggested that SDPOM from wastewater treatment plants discharging into the SCB could supply up to 57% of the C assimilated by this important benthic macroinvertebrate in areas as far away as 26 km from SDPOM inputs. The stable isotope data for Amphiodia urtica were more difficult to interpret because of the complex feeding habits of this organism.

    Title Stable Carbon Isotope Ratio and Composition of Microbial Fatty Acids in Tropical Soils.
    Date April 2003
    Journal Journal of Environmental Quality

    The soil microbial community plays a critical part in tropical ecosystem functioning through its role in the soil organic matter (SOM) cycle. This study evaluates the relative effects of soil type and land use on (i) soil microbial community structure and (ii) the contribution of SOM derived from the original forest vegetation to the functioning of pasture and sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) ecosystems. We used principal components analysis (PCA) of soil phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) profiles to evaluate microbial community structure and PLFA stable carbon isotope ratios (delta13C) as indicators of the delta13C of microbial substrates. Soil type mainly determined the relative proportions of gram positive versus gram negative bacteria whereas land use primarily determined the relative proportion of fungi, protozoa, and actinomycetes versus other types of microorganisms. Comparison of a simple model to our PLFA delta13C data from land use chronosequences indicates that forest-derived SOM is actively cycled for appreciably longer times in sugarcane ecosystems developed on Andisols (mean turnover time = 50 yr) than in sugarcane ecosystems developed on an Oxisol (mean turnover time = 13 yr). Our analyses indicate that soil chronosequence PLFA delta13C measurements can be useful indicators of the contribution that SOM derived from the original vegetation makes to continued ecosystem function under the new land use.

    Title Lack of Interference of Icodextrin on Creatinine Measurements.
    Date April 2000
    Journal Advances in Peritoneal Dialysis. Conference on Peritoneal Dialysis

    Glucose has been reported to interfere in the analysis of creatinine by the Jaffe method. The potential interference of icodextrin and its primary metabolites (maltose, maltotriose, maltotetraose) on creatinine measurements has not previously been addressed. We evaluated the potential interference of icodextrin and its metabolites at various concentrations using both the Jaffe and Creatinine Plus methods. Interference was determined in samples containing 0.6-20 mg/dL creatinine in saline solution or in plasma (n = 6), and in dialysate samples (n = 6) spiked with icodextrin, maltose, maltotriose, and maltotetraose at concentrations up to twofold the level found in plasma and dialysate from patients treated using icodextrin. Results confirm that no interference occurs when using either the colorimetric Jaffe method or the enzymatic Creatinine Plus method at levels up to 65 g/L icodextrin, 2 g/L maltose, 2 g/L maltotriose, and 1 g/L maltotetraose, levels representing worst-case clinical concentrations. In addition, our results confirm that comparable values can be obtained using either the Jaffe or the Creatinine Plus method for the analysis of creatinine in uremic plasma and in dialysate samples.

    Title Maltose and Isomaltose in Uremic Plasma Following Icodextrin Administration.
    Date February 2000
    Journal Advances in Peritoneal Dialysis. Conference on Peritoneal Dialysis

    The presence of mixed disaccharides (maltose and isomaltose) in plasma from uremic patients has been previously investigated using gel-permeation chromatography. However, this method is unable to separate maltose (linked alpha-1-4) from isomaltose (linked alpha-1-6). We describe an alternative method using high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD) for the direct determination of maltose and isomaltose in uremic plasma. We measured maltose and isomaltose using HPAE-PAD in 6 normal subjects and in 15 uremic patients before and after once-daily icodextrin administration for at least 4 weeks. Both maltose and isomaltose were below limits of detection (< 1.0 mg/L) in plasma from normal controls. Patients with end-stage renal disease treated by continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis had elevated levels of isomaltose (23.6 +/- 8.3 mg/L) but low levels of maltose (< 3.0 mg/L). Treatment with icodextrin resulted in elevated plasma levels of maltose (range: 500-1600 mg/L), while levels of isomaltose declined to 9.8 +/- 5.2 mg/L (P < 0.0001 vs. baseline levels). We conclude that isomaltose (not maltose) is the primary disaccharide isomer that is elevated in the plasma of uremic patients, whereas maltose is the primary disaccharide isomer that is elevated following icodextrin administration. Furthermore, icodextrin administration results in an apparent reduction of isomaltose. Additional investigation will be required to address the mechanism for the reduction of isomaltose in patients treated by icodextrin.

    Title Quantitation of Dextran 70 in Peritoneal Dialysate from Patients Administered 7.5% Polyglucose.
    Date February 1999
    Journal Journal of Chromatography. B, Biomedical Sciences and Applications

    A method using gel permeation chromatography was evaluated for the quantitation of dextran 70 in dialysate samples containing polyglucose. Dialysate samples containing dextran 70 and polyglucose were pretreated using the enzyme alpha-amylase to selectively hydrolyze the alpha(1-4)-linked polyglucose, while leaving the alpha(1-6)-linked dextran 70 intact. Following sample deproteinization with trichloroacetic acid, dextran 70 was quantitated using gel permeation chromatography with refractive index detection. This method was evaluated for accuracy, precision, specificity, linearity, range, and analyte stability. Adequate method linearity with a correlation of >0.999 was established over the range of dextran 70 concentration from 1 to 0.025 mg/ml. Method precision was approximately 2% R.S.D. and accuracy (% recovery) was approximately 98-100% in the typical sample concentration range (1-0.5 mg/ml). This method was applied to the determination of intraperitoneal fluid kinetics in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients administered daily night-time intraperitoneal exchanges with either 7.5% polyglucose or 4.25% dextrose. Dextran 70 was added to the dialysis solutions to yield an initial concentration of 1 mg/ml. Dialysate samples were collected at various times over a 10-h dwell-time and assayed for dextran 70. Intraperitoneal volume profiles based on dextran 70 concentrations and drain volumes were then calculated for each dialysis solution.

    Title Direct Determination of Polyglucose Metabolites in Plasma Using Anion-exchange Chromatography with Pulsed Amperometric Detection.
    Date September 1997
    Journal Journal of Chromatography. B, Biomedical Sciences and Applications

    High-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD) was evaluated for the quantitation of polyglucose metabolites (DP2-DP7) in human plasma. The method was investigated for accuracy, precision, specificity, linearity, range and analyte stability. Samples were prepared by dilution into the standard range (0.1-10 microg/ml) followed by deproteinization using a 30,000 molecular mass cut-off filtration device. The limit of detection was 0.05 microg/ml for all metabolites. Method precision for DP2-DP7 varied from approximately 2% R.S.D. in the upper range to approximately 15% R.S.D. at the limit of quantitation. Samples were stable following one or two freeze-thaw cycles and, after preparation, they could be refrigerated for up to 72 h. Application of this method to clinical plasma samples from continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients administered one daily night-time intraperitoneal exchange of 2 l of 7.5% polyglucose solution for four weeks indicated that plasma levels of DP2, DP3 and DP4 increased from baseline levels of <0.01 g/l to steady-state levels of 1.2+/-0.3, 1.2+/-0.3 and 0.4+/-0.1 g/l (mean+/-S.D.), respectively. These steady state plasma levels for DP2 and DP3 are comparable to previously reported levels in patients administered daily overnight 7.5% polyglucose dialysis solution.

    Title The Effect of Blood Contact and Reuse on the Transport Properties of High-flux Dialysis Membranes.
    Date December 1996
    Journal Asaio Journal (american Society for Artificial Internal Organs : 1992)

    The effect of blood contact and reprocessing using bleach on the convective transport of both neutral and positively charged dextrans was determined for cellulose triacetate (CT), polyacrylonitrile (PAN), and polysulfone (PS) dialyzers (Fresenius USA, F60B, Concord, CA). For neutral dextrans, blood contact reduced the convective permeability, determined by differences in the sieving coefficient profile for both the PAN and PS, but not for CT dialyzers. Reprocessing of the dialyzers with bleach (up to 15 reuses) did not affect the convective transport of dextrans through CT or PAN, but did enhance the permeability of the blood contacted PS dialyzers. However, sieving coefficients for the blood contacted and reprocessed PS (F60B) dialyzers were significantly lower than those for the other dialyzers studied, approaching zero for dextrans larger than 18 k molecular weight. Sieving coefficients for positively charged, diethylaminoethyl (DEAE) dextrans were a function not only of solute size, but also of the membrane's capacity for adsorption of charged molecules. The majority of smaller, filtered DEAE dextrans adsorbed to the PAN membrane. Adsorption of DEAE dextrans to PAN was not observed for larger dextrans, or for DEAE dextrans of any size with CT, despite the lower permeability of both membranes for DEAE dextran compared to that for neutral dextrans.

    Title Nosocomial Pneumonia in Intubated Patients Given Sucralfate As Compared with Antacids or Histamine Type 2 Blockers. The Role of Gastric Colonization.
    Date December 1987
    Journal The New England Journal of Medicine

    Gram-negative nosocomial pneumonia may result from retrograde colonization of the pharynx from the stomach, and this may be more likely when the gastric pH is relatively high. We studied the rate of nosocomial pneumonia among 130 patients given mechanical ventilation in an intensive care unit who were receiving as prophylaxis for stress ulcer either sucralfate (n = 61), which does not raise gastric pH, or conventional treatment with antacids, histamine type 2 (H2) blockers, or both (n = 69). At the time of randomization to treatment, the two groups were similar in age, underlying diseases, and severity of acute illness. Patients in the sucralfate group had a higher proportion of gastric aspirates with a pH less than or equal to 4 (P less than 0.001) and significantly lower concentrations of gram-negative bacilli (P less than 0.05) in gastric aspirates, pharyngeal swabs, and tracheal aspirates than did patients in the antacid-H2-blocker group. The rate of pneumonia was twice as high in the antacid-H2 group as in the sucralfate group (95 percent confidence interval, 0.89 to 4.58; P = 0.11). Gram-negative bacilli were isolated more frequently from the tracheal aspirates of patients with pneumonia who were receiving antacids or H2 blockers. Mortality rates were 1.6 times higher in the antacid-H2 group than in the sucralfate group (95 percent confidence interval, 0.99 to 2.50; P = 0.07). Although our results fell just short of statistical significance when they were analyzed according to intention to treat, they suggest that agents that elevate gastric pH increase the risk of nosocomial pneumonia in patients receiving ventilation by favoring gastric colonization with gram-negative bacilli. We conclude that in patients receiving mechanical ventilation, the use of a prophylactic agent against stress-ulcer bleeding that preserves the natural gastric acid barrier against bacterial overgrowth may be preferable to antacids and H2 blockers.
