Absolute measurement of total body calcium (bone mass) in vivo

, : Absolute measurement of total body calcium (bone mass) in vivo. Journal of Laboratory and Clinical Medicine 79(3): 430-438

With the method of total body neutron activation analysis (TBNA) and total body counting, a technique has been established to estimate body Ca in g with an accuracy of 5.2%. Five cadavers of different body size were activated and counted to establish the ratio of their induced 49Ca activity to a fixed Ca standard, activated and counted under identical conditions.

The synthesis and in vitro activities of a series of suceinyl-nitrile-based inhibitors of Cathepsin S are described. Several members of this class show nanomolar inhibition of the target enzyme as well as cellular potency. The inhibitors displayi...
