Recently it has been recognized that steady-state serum digoxin concentrations may increase or fall to ineffective levels when the glycoside is administered together with several antibiotics. Our study was designed to assess if serum digoxin levels may be modified by the concomitant use of a ticarcillin and clavulanic acid. The study was carried out in 15(More)
The study has been carried out on albino rats pre and/or postnatally exposed to vanadate (1 and 10 mg/dl). In pups pre- and postnatal or postnatal vanadate exposure significantly decreased on the 30th and 60th day of age the pressor response to 1-noradrenaline, and increased the pressor response to sinus-carotid baroreceptor stimulation and the hypotensive(More)
Experimental research has documented that fenoverine is a depressant drug mostly active on the intestinal smooth muscle; however, it is also active on other tissues as well as on the genito-urinary tract. Fenoverine may be considered a synchronizer of smooth muscle effective in modulating the intracellular influx of calcium into the cell and its release(More)
Antibiotics may interfere with platelet (PLT) function, and beta-lactam antibiotics may interact with PLT aggregation, by inhibiting the binding of agonists of this aggregation (such as ADP and collagen) to specific receptor sites. In this study we have evaluated the relative in-vitro antiplatelet effects of some old and new cephalosporins (cefonicid,(More)
We have investigated the effect of inhaled adenosine on bronchomotor tone in 16 healthy and 24 allergic and non-allergic bronchopathic subjects. We determined the inhaled adenosine dose-response curves after no treatment and after treatment with aminophylline (240 mg in 10 min), reproterol (90 mcg in 2 min) and salbutamol (100 mcg in 2 min) administered(More)
Vascular reactivity, heart rate responses to vasoconstrictor and/or vasodilatator agents and catecholamine and arginine vasopressin turnover were studied in normotensive Wistar Kyoto (WKY), spontaneously hypertensive (SHR), normolipemic Brown Norway (BN) and spontaneously hyperlipemic Yoshida (YOS) anaesthetized rats at 2, 6 and 18 months of age. In this(More)
The study was performed on 14 healthy volunteers in order to compare the pharmacokinetics and hence assess the bioequivalence of two different tablet formulations of diltiazem administered orally. The study was carried out after single doses (60 mg) and repeated doses (60 mg three times a day for six days and 60 mg on the seventh day) according to a(More)
During the Dark ages, Greco-Roman science survived in the eastern Roman Empire and the most important advances in pharmacology and pharmacy were made in Byzantium. As the Arab empires spread in the 7th and 8th centuries, they incorporated earlier learning, and the most important contribution of Arabic medical writers was probably the introduction of(More)
