Women desire safe and effective choices for pain management during labor. Currently, neuraxial and opioid analgesia are the most common methods used in the United States. The purpose of this study was to investigate demographic characteristics, safety, and satisfaction in a cohort of parturients who used inhaled nitrous oxide (N2O) analgesia and to determine predictors of conversion...
N-Acetyl-S-farnesyl cysteine (AFC) is the minimal synthetic substrate for the enzyme Icmt, which methylates prenylated proteins. The desthio-AFC isostere 2 has been synthesized in racemic form. This analog was not an Icmt substrate, but instead a weak inhibitor with an IC 50 of ∼325μM.
Ionic liquids are organic salts with low melting points. Many of these compounds are liquid at room temperature in their pure state. Since they have negligible vapor pressure and would not contribute to air pollution, they are being intensively investigated for a variety of applications, including as solvents for reactions and separations, as non-volatile electrolytes, and as heat transfer fluids...
