    Notes: Abstract Ru(bpy) 3 2+ electrogenerated chemiluminescence (CL) has rapidly gained importance as a sensitive and selective detection method in analytical science. The Ru(bpy) 3 2+ ECL is observed when Ru(bpy) 3 3+ reacts with Ru(bpy) 3 + and yields an excited state Ru(bpy) 3 2+* . ECL emission can also be obtained when a variety of oxidants and reductants react with the reduced or oxidized forms of Ru(bpy) 3 2+ . Either the reductant or the oxidant can be treated as an analyte. The Ru(bpy) 3 2+ ECL is used as a detection method for the determination of oxalate and a variety of amine-containing analytes without derivatization in flowing streams such as flow injection and HPLC. When the ECL format is used as a detector for HPLC, unstable post-column reagent addition can often be eliminated and, the problems of both sample dilution and band broadening can be avoided because the Ru(bpy) 3 3+ species are generatedin situ in the reaction/observation flow cell. Since NADH is sensitively detected with the Ru(bpy) 3 2+ ECL, many clinically important analytes can be detected by coupling them to dehydrogenase enzymes that utilize β-nicotinamide adenine cofactors to convert NAD+ to NADH. Ru(bpy) 3 2+ -derivatives are used as CL labels for immunoassay and PCR assay with Ru(bpy) 3 2+ /tripropylamine ECL system. The Ru(bpy) 3 2+ ECL label can be sensitively determined at subpicomolar concentrations, along with an extremely wide dynamic range of greater than six orders of magnitude. Furthermore, it can eliminate disposal and lifetime problems inherent in radio immunoassays. In this paper, basic principles of the Ru(bpy) 3 2+ ECL are discussed. In addition, analytical applications of the Ru(bpy) 3 2+ ECL are illustrated with examples.

    Notes: Abstract: In an endeavor to analyse the clinical characteristics of female gout, we reviewed 36 women with gout. Twenty-seven (75%) developed the first symptomatic episode of gout after the onset of the menopause. The mean age at onset of gout was 54.3 years (range 15–87 years). Twenty-two patients (61%) had hypertension, 17 (47%) had renal insufficiency, 13 (36%) used diuretics and 10 (28%) were taking cyclosporine for a renal allograft. Tophaceous gout occurred in 10 patients (27%) and polyarticular involvement was seen in 16 (44%) at initial presentation. Five of nine premenopausal patients were taking cyclosporine and four had renal insufficiency. A comparison with a control group of 72 randomly selected male patients with gout showed that the female patients were frequently receiving diuretics at the time of the attack and had significantly lower mean uric acid excretion, whereas significantly more male patients showed heavy alcohol consumption and precipitating events for an acute attack compared with the female patients. There were no significant differences between the sexes for onset age, hypertension, renal insufficiency, distribution of joint involvement, tophi and mean serum uric acid concentration. The female patients in this study had a lower mean age at onset of gout than in previous studies, which was attributed to the inclusion of renal transplantation patients. Transplantation gout patients receiving cyclosporine lower the mean age at onset of female gout and this is an emerging problem in female gout.
