General approach to the biological analysis of complex mixtures

, : General approach to the biological analysis of complex mixtures. Environmental Health Perspectives 48: 129-136

The study of potential health effects of combustion effluents involves identifying the substances present and estimating the probable health hazards of each. Unfortunately, this second step cannot be done by using present techniques. Approximations of health hazards by bacterial and human cell assays are being used to set priorities for further biological studies and to suggest needs for modifications of combustion systems. The assumptions underlying this approximation are discussed, and several examples of combustion effluents are reviewed.

Observations in space and laboratory plasmas suggest magnetic reconnection as a mechanism for ion heating and formation of non-Maxwellian ion velocity distribution functions (IVDF). Laser-induced fluorescence measurements of the IVDF parallel to t...

Human brains present a clear asymmetry of the postero-lateral cortical area, so called "planum temporale" (Geschwind and Levitsky). This asymmetry is on favour of the left brain. A similar asymmetry is observed on the parietal operculum....

B-cell depletion has become a common treatment strategy in anti-TNF-refractory rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Although the exact mechanism of how B-cell depletion leads to clinical amelioration in RA remains to be elucidated, repetitive treatment with...
