The response of normal human blood platelets to exposure to 2.45 GHz continuous wave radiation
Human blood platelets in platelet-rich plasma were irradiated at room temperature with 2.45 GHz continuous wave microwave radiation in a rectangular waveguide chamber for an exposure duration of two hours. Measurements of ...
Rheological aspects of sickle cell anemia and related hemoglobinopathies
To evaluate the rheological behavior of certain hemoglobinopathies with respect to oxygen tension, the concept of optimum hematocrit was employed. The optimum hematocrit is defined as the hematocrit at which the erythrocyte ...
Characterization of semiconducting catalysts by gas adsorption: Nickel oxide and magnesium ferrite
In previous work in this laboratory Murphy, Veerkamp, and Leland have derived a model that measures the fraction of a semiconductor catalyst participating in electronic surface effects due to gas adsorption. The parameter, ...
Trace contaminant studies of HSC adsorbent
The adsorption and desorption of fifteen trace contaminants on HSC (polyethylenimine coated acrylic ester) adsorbent have been experimentally investigated with the following two objectives: 1) To test the removal potential ...
Development of a Burnett-Isochoric apparatus for the study of the volumetric behavior of pure components and mixtures at high reduced temperature and high pressure, and development of a method for the analysis of PVT isochores
A Burnett-isochoric apparatus was used to obtain six PVT isochores for a 79.95 mol% methane-hydrogen mixture, from 273.15 K to 5 K, and 13 to 55 bar . The Burnett method was selected since no direct measurements of mass ...
Diffusion phenomena in oil-water-surfactant systems
The diffusional processes which occur when oil contacts an aqueous surfactant solution have been investigated. These are important in enhanced oil recovery by surfactant flooding, where the rate of phase equilibration can ...
Effects of antiplatelet agents on polymorphonuclear leukocytes exposed to mechanical trauma
The effects of shear stress on polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) were investigated to ascertain whether mechanical trauma induces lysosomal granule release or membrane lysis. In addition, the effects of antiplatelet ...
Thermal diffusion near a binary liquid azetrope
Induction of a mass flux by a temperature gradient is known as the thermal diffusion or Soret effect, and is characterized by the thermal diffusion factor. A thermogravitational column’was used to obtain thermal diffusion ...
Shear induced tissue factor activity in human leukocytes
There is a growing amount of evidence a significant link exists between the body's immune system and blood coagulation pathways. Specifically, the monocyte, a peripheral blood leukocyte, has been found to be the source of ...
