As a consequence of the increasing importance of tritium resulting
from nuclear fission and neutron activation, from its use in accelerators,
from its use in research and industry, and from its use in the
investigation of the environment and its distribution in the environment,
the NCRP designated a scientific committee to prepare a report
on the currently acceptable methods of measuring tritium. This
report is particularly aimed in assisting an individual to select a
procedure suitable to the problem at hand....
Despite its limitations, unfractionated heparin has been the standard anticoagulant
used during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). Several small studies have
suggested that intravenous enoxaparin may be a safe and effective alternative. Our
primary aim was to assess the safety of enoxaparin as compared with that of unfractionated
heparin in elective PCI.
In this prospective, open-label, multicenter, randomized trial, we randomly assigned
3528 patients with PCI to receive enoxaparin (0.5 or 0.
Donations are usually provided as part of humanitarian assistance to save lives and alleviate

Pharmaceuticals may arrive past or near their expiry date, may be inappropriate for the needs,

unwanted quantities. Donations with long shelf life may be mismanaged, particularly in the
confusion during and after armed conflict or a natural disaster.
