enteral nutrition in patients with tumours of the head and evaluation is presented of the nutritional status of 30 patients out of the 45 submitted to head and neck surgery, involving the buccal cavity, in the maxillofacial surgery service of the general hospital "gregorio marañón" of madrid, between october 1985 and december 1986, before and after being submitted to excision of a tumour in the head or neck, by administration, in the postoperative period, of a liquid comprehensive diet via a nasogastric catheter. neither in the postoperative period n ...19892492543
contact dermatitis due to cashew nut (anacardium occidentale) shell oil, pericarp and kernel.a 21 year old worker developed itching, fissuring and exudative lesions on her hands and fingers, 3 year after working as a cutter in the cashew nut factory. the lesions would in, prove during holidays or after she left her job. patch tests were postive with the 0.1% cashew nut shell oil in polyethylene glycol and also with the red pericarp covering and the kernel of cashew nuts used as such.201728134176
lipids of high-yielding varieties of cashew (anacardium occidentale l.).cashew kernel lipids from high-yielding varieties have been characterised. neutral lipid accounted for 96% while glycolipid and phospholipid accounted for the remaining 4%. triglycerides were very rich in unsaturated fatty acids (oleic and linoleic) while glycolipids were rich in saturated fatty acids (lauric and myristic). varietal difference was noticed with respect to the composition of neutral and glycolipids. composition of phospholipid did not differ among high-yielding varieties.19873507003

chemical examination of anacardium occidentale.a new biflavonoid-c-glycoside named occidentoside, also the known (-)salipurposide and beta-sitosterol, have been isolated from the nut shells of anacardium occidentale l. (anacardiaceae). the structure of occidentoside has been established as tetrahydroninokiflavone-c-glucoside (iii) from spectral and chemical evidence. this is the first biflavonoid to occur with one flavanone and one chalcone unit and also the first c-glycoside in the biflavonoid series. identification of (-)salipurposide is a ...198217396769
anacardic acid: molluscicide in cashew nut shell liquid.the components of anacardic acid, (a mixture of 6-n-c (15) alkylsalicylic acids whose side chains vary in degrees of unsaturation) have been isolated by high pressure liquid chromatography from a crude extract of cashew nut shell, anacardium occidentale, and tested for toxicity to fresh water snails, biomphalaria glabrata. the triene component is the most toxic form (lc (50) 0.35 ppm), the diene and monoene components are less toxic (lc (50) 0.9 and 1.4 ppm), and the saturated component is relat ...198217402106
