    Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the most commonly diagnosed autoimmune diseases. The causes of this disease remain largely unknown, and individuals with this chronic illness face many psychological, social, and emotional ...
  • Sock Material And Warm-Up Effects On Foot Temperature During Treadmill Runing 

    Patel, Tej M.; Oestreich, Nicholas J.; Post, Mitchell L.; Ross, Brandon J.; Schmidt, Alyssa C.; Shelton, Brent T.; Smith, Julie E.; Stinson, Travis L.; Van Roekel, Nickolas; Barkley, Rachel M. (2011-04-19)
    Manufacturers market a variety of athletic socks to runners with varying claims of comfort and ergogenic properties. This study (approved by Drake IRB ID 2009-10088) investigated how foot temperature during running was ...
  • Solubility of carbamazepine in aqueous solutions of sodium dodecyl sulfate 

    Davis, Andrew; Chrzaszcz, Dorothy; Bohorquez, Maria; Pandit, Nivedita K. (2007-05-29)
    Carbamazepine (CZ) is a hydrophobic antiepileptic drug with a very low water solubility. It is important to identify means of improving the solubility of such drugs for better formulation and absorption. One approach to ...
  • The Solubilization mechanism of benzyl esters in sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) micelles 

    Grill, Alex; Neuharth, Scott; Dang, Ngoc; Bulochnik, Alex; Hoang, Tram B.; Odorzynski, Melissa; Mirafzal, Gholam A.; Almoazen, Hassan (2007-06-01)
    Micelles are aggregates of surfactant molecules used to increase the solubility and bioavailability of poorly soluble pharmaceutical compounds. Past studies have suggested that a micelle is an oil droplet surrounded by a ...
  • Solvent Effects on the Spectroscopy of Dyes 

    Barkley, Rachel M.; Hurley, Carly E.; Johnson, Ryan T.; Nkrumah-Agyeefi, Samuel; Wildgen, Sarah M. (2009-04-20)
    Linear solvation energy relationships (LSERs) were used to quantify the intermolecular interactions between solvents and two organic dyes - di-8-ANEPPS and RH-237. LSERs evaluate the sensitivity of a dye's wavelength of ...
  • "Species traits as predictors of the frequency of recolonization in prairie Lepidoptera" 

    Steichen, Renae M.; Conoan, Christopher J.; Summerville, Keith S. (2005-06-23)
    Restoration ecologists are increasingly turning to the development of models to predict how species move from a regional species pool into a restored community. Two untested assumptions of these models, however, are that ...
