    A number of arboviruses multiply in avian cells in tissue culture but fail to produce plaques in them when grown under an agar overlay. It has been shown that the addition of optimal amounts of DEAE dextran or of protamlne enables some such viruses to form clear-cut plaques to a high titre. The...

    In total hip replacement (THR) dextran 70 is widely used as a plasma expander and as a thromboprophylactic agent. In a rec-hirudin multicenter dose-finding study approximately one third of the patients in our center received dextran 70 as a plasma expander at the beginning of the operation, the...

    The immunological effects of phosphorylated dextran (in which phosphate groups were chemically introduced) on murine splenocytes were examined. When dextran produced by Leuconostoc mesenteroides was phosphorylated by a reaction with polyphosphoric acid in formamide solution for 48 h, the degree...

    The aim of this study was the development of biocomposite scaffolds (membranes and matrices) based on natural polymers used for bone tissue engineering. The novelty featured in this paper is the use of phosphorylated dextran (PDex) as natural component in collagen-based biocomposites. The PDex...
