Urinary Tract Infection in a Small Animal Model: Transurethral Catheterization of Male and Female Mice Anna Zychlinsky Scharff1, Matthew L. Albert1,2, Molly A. Ingersoll1 1Unité d’Immunobiologie des Cellules Dendritiques, Department of Immunology, Institut Pasteur, INSERM U818, 2Genentech The established model of transurethral catheterization of mice allows the study of bladder pathologies, including urinary tract infection, but can only be performed in females. A new model of male transurethral instillation, presented here, will enable research in an area marked by strong clinical and epidemiological differences between the sexes.
Application and Methodology of the Non-destructive 19F Time-domain NMR Technique to Measure the Content in Fluorine-containing Drug Products Maria Victoria Silva Elipe1, Lan Li1, Karthik Nagapudi2, Alan M. Kook3, Carlos Cobas4, Isaac Iglesias4, Chen Peng4 1Department of Attribute Sciences, Amgen, Inc., 2Small Molecule Pharmaceutical Sciences, Genentech, Inc., 3NMR Service + Consulting, 4Mestrelab Research A simple and non-destructive technique that measures the average content of drug substances in formulated drug products containing fluorine using low-field fluorine-19 (19F) time-domain (TD) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is presented here. The technique can be applied to the development and manufacturing of drugs in the pharmaceutical industry.
