The concentrations of 1-MN in kidneys of rats after repeated exposure to 1-MN vapor at target concentration of 50 mg/[m.sup.3]and 200 mg/[m.sup.3] decreased at a similar rate (ca.
Recording a conclusion of death due to accident, coroner Sarah Richards said: "The target concentration is between six and 20mg per litre; however, this was not found.

An initial target concentration (effect-site, modified Marsh model with ke0 1.21 min-1 [11]) of propofol 4 [micro]g*[mL.sup.-1] and the fixed target concentration (plasma, Minto model [12,13]) of remifentanil 10 ng*[mL.sup.-1] were administered intravenously using two target controlled infusion (TCI) devices.
The sensitivity of the proposed colorimetric assay method based on unmodified AuNPs for quantifying concentration of dengue virus DNA target was conducted through the hybridization of 12 [micro]M of PNA probe solutions with different complementary DNA target concentration at ratios of 0, 0.01, 0.03, 0.05, 0.1, 0.5, and 1, respectively (Table 3).
Statistical analysis of large numbers of reactions across the dilution range where the assays start to show a mixture of positive and negative results can be employed to calculate the initial sample target concentration. While theoretically robust, the method was cumbersome and tedious in the extreme, as the author can personally attest.
Because of microbiology's high variability, it is not possible ensure an exact target concentration.
Given the emission rates and source strengths found above, and accounting for the efficiency of air cleaning devices, the standard requires mass-balance calculations to determine the minimum breathing zone OA rate needed to achieve the target concentration limit for each contaminant, and the target sum-of-constituent-ratios (1.0) for each impact mixture (see sidebar Impact Mixture Calculations).
While this particular failure was a relatively minor inconvenience, as the infusion had reached a stable state and little change in the target concentration was required, the same would not apply earlier in a case or when multiple changes are necessary, as all of the TCI pump benefits of bolus and rate change adjustments to increase target concentration and delay infusion and rate adjustments to decrease target concentration would be lost.
Rifampicin causes an increase in corticosteroid clearance, and a decrease in the blood concentrations of calcineurin inhibitors by inducing Cytochrome P450 3A4 in the liver.3 When rifampicin is coadministered with calcineurin inhibitors, it is generally acknowledged that a substantial increase in the dosage of calcineurin inhibitors is required to achieve the efficacious target concentrations and avoid graft rejection.4-6 In opposition to this acknowledgement, we report herein a renal transplant recipient with the blood concentration of FK506 only achieved 70% of the target concentration, however, the patient maintained good renal graft function during the 18-month duration of anti-tuberculosis therapy.
"Most scientists who are actively working with vitamin D now believe that 40 to 60 ng/ml is the appropriate target concentration of 25-vitamin D in the blood for preventing the major vitamin D-deficiency related diseases, and have joined in a letter on this topic," said Garland.
