Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Methoxone

  • No changes were found in conjugation activities after treatment with MCPA or beta-NF [15].
  • The animals were exposed percutaneously to 0, 200, 400, or 800 ppm of MCPA for 4 days a week throughout the regeneration period and were sacrificed 11 weeks after amputation [17].
  • In competition ELISA, the bacterial scAb showed the same specificity for mecoprop and a related herbicide, MCPA, as the Mab but an increase in sensitivity for free antigen in all ELISA formats [31].
  • In the platelet-rich plasma prepared from rabbits 2.5 h after subcutaneous injection of 2.4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid or 4-chloro-2-methylphenoxyacetic acid (100-150 mg/kg), platelet aggregation by ADP was inhibited 20-30%, compared to plasma taken from the rabbits before the chlorophenoxyacid treatment [32].
  • The biodegradation of selected priority acidic pesticides MCPP, MCPA, 2,4-D, 2,4-DP and bentazone and the acidic pharmaceutical diclofenac was investigated using a membrane bioreactor (MBR) and a fixed-bed bioreactor (FBBR) [33].
