1. PHA-794428 is a PEGylated version of somatropin (human growth hormone). The pharmacokinetics of PHA-794428 have been studied in humans following single subcutaneous administration (dose range 10-500 microg kg(-1)). In the same study the pharmacokinetics of somatropin were also determined following a 3.6 mg (51 microg kg(-1)) subcutaneous dose. Comparison(More)
4-amino-5-(4-fluorophenyl)-6,7-dimethoxy-2-[4-(morpholinocarbonyl)-perhydro-1,4-diazepin-1-yl]quinoline (UK-294,315) is an antagonist of the human alpha1-adrenoceptor and exhibits nonlinear oral pharmacokinetics in humans. Superproportional increases in Cmax occur (220-fold, over a 1- to 50-mg dose range), area under the curve increases linearly, but time(More)
Maraviroc is a first-in-class CCR5 antagonist that shows potent anti-HIV-1 activity in vitro and in vivo and is well tolerated in both healthy volunteers and HIV-1-infected patients. The method for determination of maraviroc (UK-427,857) and its major metabolite (UK-408,027) in human plasma consists of a protein-precipitation procedure and analysis by(More)
A selective method for the determination of sulphobutylether-beta-cyclodextrin (SBECD) in human plasma has been developed and validated over the range 4-200 microg ml(-1). SBECD is extracted from plasma using end-capped cyclohexyl solid phase extraction cartridges. This is followed by high performance size exclusion chromatography with a mobile phase(More)
BACKGROUND The laparoscopic approach must be shown to be cost-effective as well as safe and technically effective before being widely adopted. A review of 54 consecutive patients who underwent open and laparoscopic colposuspension is presented and a cost-analysis is performed comparing the two approaches. METHODS This study was a retrospective controlled(More)
1. Recombinant neutrophil inhibitory factor (NIF) is a glycoprotein. Its amino acid sequence remains constant and has a molecular weight of 28.9 kD. However, approximately 40% of the total molecular weight consists of glycans with variable structure. 2. The pharmacokinetics of 11 different NIF batches with varying extents and patterns of sialylation have(More)
UK-279,276, or recombinant neutrophil inhibitory factor (rNIF), is a glycoprotein that binds to the human CD11b receptor (IC(50) = <0.5 nM) and inhibits neutrophil binding to vascular endothelial cells. In dogs, the pharmacokinetics of UK-279,276 are non-linear with clearance slowing as dose increases (apparent clearance 0.06 ml min(-1) kg(-1) at 0.l mg(More)
The family planning program of an adolescent care clinic (ACC) was evaluated to determine its effect on the teenage birth rate. The ACC was attempting to provide more accessible family planning services to a low-income, minority teenage population. The first evaluation compared the teenage birth rate for the target area served by the ACC with a matched area(More)
A rapid, sensitive and selective method using column-switching HPLC with fluorescence detection has been developed for the determination of UK-356,202, a potent urokinase-type plasminogen activator, in human plasma. A structural isomer of UK-356,202 is used as an internal standard. The lower limit of quantification is 20 pg/mL and the method is linear over(More)
