Multiple incidence of the prescription diuretic hydrochlorothiazide in compounded nutritional supplements

Published: Oct 18, 2018

Author(s): Donata Favretto, Sindi Visentin, Salvatore Scrivano, Emanuele Roselli, Fabio Mattiazzi, Roberto Pertile, Susanna Vogliardi, Marianna Tucci, Massimo Montisci

Journal: Drug Testing and Analysis

Abstract Diuretic agents are prohibited in sports in‐ and out‐of‐competition according to the regulations of the World Anti‐Doping Agency (WADA) because of their possible masking effects on other doping agents in urine samples, and their ability to produce fast acute weight losses. Despite previous studies reported adverse analytical findings (AAFs) resulting from contaminations at ppm level (μg/g) of medicinal products, and...

Postmortem tissue distribution of morphine and its metabolites in a series of heroin‐related deaths

Published: Oct 18, 2018

Author(s): Peter D. Maskell, Nathan E. Wilson, L. Nitin Seetohul, Megan L. Crichton, Lewis J. Beer, Gail Drummond, Giorgia De Paoli

Journal: Drug Testing and Analysis

Abstract The abuse of heroin (diamorphine) and heroin‐related deaths are increasing around the world. The interpretation of the toxicological results from suspected heroin‐related deaths is notoriously difficult, especially in cases where there may be limited samples. To help forensic practitioners with heroin interpretation, we determined the concentration of morphine (M), morphine‐3‐glucuronide (M3G), and morphine‐6‐glucuronide...

Over‐discretized SENSE reconstruction and B 0 correction for accelerated non‐lipid‐suppressed 1 H FID MRSI of the human brain at 9.4 T

Published: Oct 18, 2018

Author(s): Sahar Nassirpour, Paul Chang, Thomas Kirchner, Anke Henning

Journal: NMR in Biomedicine

The aim of this work was to use post‐processing methods to improve the data quality of metabolite maps acquired on the human brain at 9.4 T with accelerated acquisition schemes. This was accomplished by combining an improved sensitivity encoding (SENSE) reconstruction with a B0 correction of spatially over‐discretized magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) data. Since MRSI scans suffer from long scan...

Ratiometric NOE(−1.6) contrast in brain tumors

Published: Oct 18, 2018

Author(s): Zhongliang Zu

Journal: NMR in Biomedicine

Recently, a new nuclear Overhauser enhancement (NOE)‐mediated saturation transfer effect at around −1.6 ppm from water, termed NOE(−1.6), was reported to show hypointense signals in brain tumors. Similar to chemical exchange saturation transfer or magnetization transfer (MT) effects, which depend on the solute pool concentration, the exchange/coupling rate, the solute transverse relaxation rate, etc., the NOE(−1.6) effect should also...

Plasmon‐enhanced inelastic scattering by 2 D and 3 D superlattices made of silver nanocrystals

Published: Oct 18, 2018

Author(s): Alexa Courty, Maxime Bayle, Robert Carles

Journal: Journal of Raman Spectroscopy

Abstract The lattice dynamics of natural crystals, artificial superlattices, or self‐organized nanocrystals intimately mix confinement, coupling, periodicity, and dissipative effects. The low wavenumber vibrational response of the new class of nanomaterials called “supercrystals” does contain relevant information concerning finite size effects on atomic movements inside each nanocrystal, mechanical coupling between adjacent...

Probing the origin of dihydrofolate reductase inhibition via proteochemometric modeling

Published: Oct 18, 2018

Author(s): Safoura Hariri, Jahan B. Ghasemi, Farhad Shirini, Behnam Rasti

Journal: Journal of Chemometrics

Abstract Dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) is an essential enzyme in the folate metabolism pathway and an important target of antineoplastic, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal, and antiinflammatory drugs. Despite the clinical effectiveness of current antifolate treatments, new drugs are needed to be designed due to developing resistance of this enzyme through multiple‐site mutagenesis. Understanding the factors affecting the ligand binding...

Cocaine adulteration with the anthelminthic tetramisole (levamisole/dexamisole): Long‐term monitoring of its intake by chiral LC–MS/MS analysis of cocaine‐positive hair samples

Published: Oct 17, 2018

Author(s): Milena M. Madry, Thomas Kraemer, Markus R. Baumgartner

Journal: Drug Testing and Analysis

Abstract Recent studies indicate that not only the anthelminthic levamisole but also the racemate tetramisole (R‐/S‐phenyltetraimidazothiazole, PTHIT) was found as an adulterant for cocaine. We herein report on the investigation of the prevalence of PTHIT among cocaine‐positive hair samples and the discrimination of the presence of its stereoisomers levamisole and dexamisole. Cocaine‐positive hair samples were collected in a forensic context in...

Lomerizine, trimetazidine and bis‐(4‐fluorophenyl)‐methylpiperazine in human urine after oral administration of lomerizine dihydrochloride: analysis by liquid chromatography‐high resolution‐tandem mass spectrometry

Published: Oct 17, 2018

Author(s): Masato Okano, Mitsuhiko Sato, Shinji Kageyama

Journal: Drug Testing and Analysis

Abstract In sports drugs testing, the differentiation between the abuse of the prohibited substance trimetazidine and that of the permitted drug lomerizine is required because trimetazidine is one of the metabolites of lomerizine. Therefore, it is important to identify a lomerizine‐specific metabolite in urine that allows making the distinction. In this study, a simple dilute‐and‐shoot method employing liquid chromatography–high...

Application of a micro plasma collection card for the detection of homocysteine by liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry

Published: Oct 17, 2018

Author(s): Xiangmei Yuan, Youli Lu, Can Xiao, Jianmin Zhu, Wei Zhang, Chen Yu, Shuijun Li

Journal: Journal of Separation Science

Abstract Generally, it is recommended that blood samples for homocysteine detection should be centrifuged immediately to separate plasma in order to avoid continuous synthesis by blood cells. The use of a micro plasma collection card may improve sample stability and result accuracy by offering automatic and instant plasma separation. We compare a micro plasma collection method with routine wet plasma to explore applications of the...
