Primitive lymphatic vessels are remodeled into functionally specialized initial and collecting lymphatics during development. Lymphatic endothelial cell (LEC) junctions in initial lymphatics transform from a zipper-like to a button-like pattern during collecting vessel development, but what regulates this process is...

The combination melphalan-prednisone-thalidomide (MPT) is considered a standard therapy for patients with myeloma who are ineligible for stem-cell transplantation. However, emerging data on the use of lenalidomide and low-dose dexamethasone warrant a prospective comparison of the two approaches. We randomly...

Activated caspases are a hallmark of apoptosis induced by the intrinsic pathway, but they are dispensable for cell death and the apoptotic clearance of cells in vivo. This has led to the suggestion that caspases are activated not just to kill...

Protocols

Dexamethasone HPLC Assay and Impurity Profiling Methods Following United States Pharmacopeia Monograph Guidelines Using a Titan C18 Column and UV Detection

A simple, precise and sensitive Reverse-Phase High Pressure Liquid Chromatography gradient method was adapted for traceability, homogeneity and total chromatographic analysis of Dexamethasone. The given experimental conditions follow the USP43-NF38 monograph method for Dexamethasone Assay and Organic Impurity Profiling. Dexamethasone, Betamethasone, Dexamethasone acetate and Desoximetasone were baseline resolved within 20 minutes using a Titan C18 UHPLC column (2.1 x 100 mm, 1.9 µm).

Our team of scientists has experience in all areas of research including Life Science, Material Science, Chemical Synthesis, Chromatography, Analytical and many others.
