Novel Gpr39 Agonists: Correlation Of Binding Affinity Using Label-Free Back-Scattering Interferometry With Potency In Functional Assays
Daniel Brown (1), Niklas Larsson (2), Ola Fjellström (3), Anders Johansson (3), Sara Lundqvist (2), Johan Brengdahl (2), and Richard J. Isaacs (1)

We describe the application of back-scattering interferometry (BSI) to the characterization of small molecule ligand binding to human GPR39 (a GPCR targeted for type-2 diabetes therapy) overexpressed in crude membrane fractions in free solution, including how BSI-derived affinity and functional assay-derived potency correlate for compounds of varying scaffolds.

Mixtures Analysis of Complex Mixtures
Michael Bernstein; Carlos Cobas; Santi Domínguez; Manuel Pérez; Agustín Barba

We describe an NMR method to quantify mixture components in wine, edible oils, etc. The method is fully customizable, and amenable to high throughput operation.

GC-MS/MS ANALYSIS OF BENZODIAZEPINES USING ANALYTE PROTECTANTS
Jeremy Matthews, Alex Chen, Flavio Bedini

Purpose: Assess the feasibility of using analyte protectants to improve the analysis of benzodiazepines.

Targeted cancer therapy based on blocking the expression of genes and small doses of oxaliplatin.
Bavykin A.S.1, Korotaeva A.A.1, Poyarkov S.V.2, Syrtsev A.V.1, Karpukhin A.V.1

The major drawbacks of the prescribed chemotherapy, are still remain the significant side effects and drug - resistance. Even targeted chemotherapy by means of specific antibodies do not always help to solve these complications. Our purpose was to identify potential biological targets associated with the development of drug resistance and to develop a specific method of suppressing the viability of cancer cells exposed to low doses of standard chemotherapy.

Inverted Y Approach to Lumbosacral region - Analysis of 525 cases over 10 years
Dr Krishna Kumar and Dr Renjith Kumar

Traditional approach to lumosacral region utilizes midline incision, which often requires long incision to get sufficient exposure. We describe our experience with inverted Y approach to lumbosacral junction.

LC/MS/MS Quantitation of Eicosapentaenoic Acid in Rat Plasma
Rachel Sun, Jordan Nally, Tim Shoaf

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an omega-3 fatty acid, which has been documented to be important in biochemical and physiological processes including inflammatory response, blood clotting and the immune system. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) appears in different forms in the blood including triglyceride, ethyl ester, or free acid. In this work we presented an LC/MS/MS method to quantitate the total eicosapentaenoic acid in rat plasma with a 96-well plate format.

Comparison of Dissociated Phoria Measuring Methods. Repeatability and Reliability
Ane Murueta-Goyena Larrañaga

The aim of this study is to determine the reliability and compare reproducibility of different dissociated phoria measure tests.

Secondary Prevention of Stroke: The role of the General Practitioner
Rayna Patel

This study aims to review the literature to further elucidate the potential impact of primary care physicians in reducing the burden of stroke.

Participation in “The Airways Program” (TAP) and Associated Mortality Reduction
Pradeep Paul George, Bee Hoon Heng, Mavis Yeow Bee Ling, Loo See Yeow, Fong Seng Lim, Lim Tow Keang

Research objectives were to assess the impact of “The air way program” on patients length of stay, readmission and mortality.
