Tramadol has been extensively prescribed for two decades. It is an opioid analgesic considered to induce fewer side effects than other compounds of this class. However, serious complications may occur in case of intoxication. We report here two cases of fatal intoxication due to tramadol ingestion. Tramadol, O-desmethyltramadol (ODT) and N-desmethyltramadol (NDT) were quantitatively and qualitatively determined in postmortem blood and urine, respectively. An HPLC method coupled with fluorescence detection was validated using total error approach for the analysis of tramadol, ODT, and NDT in blood. In case1, concentrations of tramadol and its metabolites were 7.7 mg/L (tramadol), 1.33 mg/L (ODT), and 0.6mg/L (NDT). In case 2, concentrations found were 48.34 mg/L (tramadol), 2.43 mg/L (ODT), and 10.09 mg/L (NDT). Opposite ratios of ODT/NDT concentrations observed in different cases were suggested to be useful for the evaluation of the delay between ingestion and death. However, the changes in metabolites levels may also be explained by pharmacokinetic interactions and quantitative differences in the activity of the cytochrome-P450 2D6. Interestingly, norfluoxetine was detected in sub-therapeutic levels in case 2. Most of these aspects in tramadol-related fatalities are reviewed in this paper, and an overview of fatal intoxications due to tramadol is presented. [less ▲]

Acrylamide (CH2=CHCONH2), a neurotoxic and potentially carcinogenic substance for human health, is in the glare of the spotlights for a few years. This is mostly due to the fact that acrylamide was found worldwide in various heated foodstuffs. Levels reported in the literature vary from 25 to 2000 ìg/kg and potato products are considered as the most contaminated. A possible pathway of synthesis of acrylamide is the Maillard reaction between reducing sugars and the amino acid asparagine. The aim of this study was to develop a liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry method to analyse as quickly as possible acrylamide in a variety of Belgian food samples such as potatoes, French fries, crisp bread, coffee, corn-flakes, etc. The sample preparation consisted in a liquid/liquid extraction, a centrifugation, followed by purification with Solid Phase Extraction (SPE). The instruments used were a Waters 2690 Alliance HPLC system coupled to a Micro-mass Quattro Ultima Platinum triple-quadrupole mass spectrometer. The analysis was performed in MS/MS mode using isotopic dilution technique for quantification. An internal 13C3 labelled standard was added prior to extraction. Quantifica-tion in MS/MS mode was calculated by reconstructing the ion current with the most abundant daughter ions for native and 13C labelled standard (ions of m/z 55 and 58). [less ▲]

Image analysis is used to quantify angiogenesis on the rat aortic ring model. This technique allows to determine: (1) the aortic ring area and factor shape; (2) the number of microvessels, the total number of branching, the maximal microvessel length and the number of microvessels in function of the distance to the aortic ring; (3) the total number of isolated fibroblast-like cells and the number of fibroblast-like cells in function of the distance to the aortic ring. We show that this method is suitable to quantify spontaneous angiogenesis as well as to analyse a complex microvascular network induced by vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). [less ▲]

Dandruff adherence to hair shafts is a visible annoying phenomenon. The aspect can be recorded by different means including the ultraviolet light-enhanced visualization (ULEV) method and microscopy. We present another quantitative method. Hairs were clipped from the parietal scalp area of 25 volunteers complaining of dandruff. They were firmly applied onto cyanoacrylate-coated microscopic slides. Hairs were lifted up after 15-20 s leaving a cast in the adhesive coat. Dandruff were thus harvested from the hair shafts and remained attached to the cyanoacrylate coat. After staining, the material was submitted to image analysis to derive the dandruff density per unit length of hairs. In 11/25 subjects, a correlation was found between the width of the hair casts and the dandruff density. This method does not collect all dandruff along hair shafts, but data are likely representative of the whole corneocyte load. [less ▲]

The matrix-inserted surface transplantation model is an in vivo assay used to analyse the kinetics of tumor-vessel interactions during different stages of skin carcinoma progression. This system allows the study of host-tumor interface, i.e. penetration of tumor cells into normal host tissue as well as infiltration of normal host cells into the tumor. In the present study, image analysis algorithms for processing and quantifying the extent of such migratory and tissue remodeling events are presented. The proposed method is non-parametric and its originality lies in its particularity to take into account the specific geometry of tumor-host interface. This methodology is validated by evaluating the contribution of matrix metalloproteases (MMPs) in skin carcinoma invasion and vascularization through pharmacological and genetic approaches. [less ▲]

Electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy with nitroxide spin probes was used as a method to probe the liposome microenvironments. The effective microviscosities have been determined from the calibration of the ESR spectra of the probes in solvent mixtures of known viscosities. In the first time, by measuring ESR order parameter (S ) and correlation time (s c) of stearic spin probes, we have been able to quantify the value of effective microviscosity at different depths inside the liposome membrane. At room temperature, local microviscosities measured in dimyristoyl-l-a phosphatidylcholine (DMPC) liposome membrane at the different depths of 7.8, 16.95, and 27.7 2 were 222.53, 64.09, and 62.56 cP, respectively. In the gel state (10 °C), those microviscosity values increased to 472.56, 370.61, and 243.37 cP. In a second time, we have applied this technique to determine the modifications in membrane microviscosity induced by 2,6-diisopropyl phenol (propofol; PPF), an anaesthetic agent extensively used in clinical practice. Propofol is characterized by a unique phenolic structure, absent in the other conventional anaesthetics. Indeed, given its lipophilic property, propofol is presumed to penetrate into and interact with membrane lipids and hence to induce changes in membrane fluidity. Incorporation of propofol into dimyristoyl-L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine liposomes above the phase-transition temperature (23.9 °C) did not change microviscosity. At 10 °C, an increase of propofol concentration from 0 to 1.0 10 [less ▲]
