The influence of food on the bioavailability of hydralazine in noncoated and coated tablets was examined in 5 healthy males. Each subject received an oral 50-mg dose on four different occasions: two 25-mg noncoated tablets with and without food and one 50-mg coated tablet with and without food. The meal was a standardized breakfast of 440 calories. Venous(More)
During 1970-75 a total of 42 patients have been subjected to long-term treatment with procaine amide (PrA) because of different cardiac arrhythmias and have been observed up to over 5 years. Among these patients 35 (83%) developed a significantly increased titer of ANF and of these, 12 patients (29%) developed a "classical" drug-induced SLE syndrome. In the(More)
The influence of food intake on the bioavailability of isoniazid (INH) has been examined in nine healthy male volunteers. INH was administered as a single oral dose, both in fasting state and together with a standardized breakfast. Numerous venous blood samples were obtained 5 min-6 hours after the INH ingestion, and the concentrations of unmetabolized INH(More)
A high-pressure liquid chromatographic technique was developed which allowed concurrent measurement of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and salicylic acid (SA) in plasma. ASA was extensively deacetylated to SA not only in vivo but also in vitro, even in frozen plasma. The in vitro conversion could be prevented by physostigmine. In vivo, ASA was eliminated within(More)
A comparison was made between the results of acetylator phenotyping by isoniazid (INH) half-life measurements based on 5 samples (0–6 h), and by determination of the ratio of monoacetylated (MAD) to unchanged dapsone (DDS) in a single sample obtained 3 h after dapsone intake. In each of 44 subjects examined, there was unequivocal agreement about(More)
We describe a method based on a Fabry-Perot interferometer at the tip of an optic fiber with a diameter of 0.25 mm for direct measurement of tracheal pressure in pediatric respiratory monitoring. The response time of the pressure transducer and its influence on the resistance of pediatric endotracheal tubes (internal diameter, 2.5 to 5 mm) during constant(More)
The bioavailability of 6-propylthiouracil (PTU) has been examined in eight healthy volunteers, with respect to interindividual variation and influence of food intake. PTU was given as a single oral dose, both in a fasting state and together with a standardized breakfast. Numerous venous blood samples were taken during 5 hours after PTU ingestion, and the(More)
The acetylator phenotype status was studied in 61 patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), of whom 27 had associated Sjögren's syndrome (SS). The acetylation tests were carried out by means of isoniazid and in 24 patients also with the use of dapsone; there was complete agreement between the outcome of the two tests. The results showed that the frequency of(More)
The effects of hemorrhagic shock and retransfusion on the activities of two endogenous antioxidant enzymes, catalase and superoxide dismutase, were studied in male New Zealand white rabbits. Following instrumentation and stabilization, blood was withdrawn to reduce mean arterial pressure to 35 mmHg (SHOCK). After 60 min of shock, the warmed autologous blood(More)
15 patients with active RA were observed over a 3-month period after starting chloroquine treatment. Clinical condition, plasma levels of chloroquine and levels of 15 individual plasma proteins were checked monthly. Nine patients responded favourably to therapy, 6 failed to respond. The responders had lower initial CRP, orosomucoid and ceruloplasmin levels,(More)
