PURPOSE Progressive myoclonus epilepsies (PMEs) are a clinically and etiologically heterogeneous group of disorders. The authors report clinical, neurophysiological, and genetic findings of a family from Southern Italy with three members affected with PME. METHODS All data about familial and personal antecedents, clinical history, neurologic examination,(More)
Biotransformation of the phytoestrogen [14C]genistein was investigated in male and female rats by application of narrow-bore radio-HPLC-MSn (LCQ, Finnigan) to determine intermediates in metabolism. Urine contained five metabolites, Gm1-Gm5, 24 h after dosing by gavage with [14C]genistein (4 mg kg(-1)). Structural analysis following ESI revealed molecular(More)
The authors report a long-term follow-up of 11 new subjects with benign myoclonic epilepsy. There were some unusual clinical features such as the need for dual therapy in 45.5% of subjects, and the presence of non-epileptic myoclonus in 54.5%, neither of which influenced the prognosis. Neuropsychological and behavioral evolution was less favorable in 45.5%(More)
1. Benzydamine (BZ), a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug used in human and veterinary medicine, is not licensed for use in food-producing species. Biotransformation of BZ in cattle has not been reported previously and is investigated here using liver microsomes and precision-cut liver slices. 2. BZ was metabolized by cattle liver microsomes to(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The genetic cause of medullary cystic kidney disease type 1 was recently identified as a cytosine insertion in the variable number of tandem repeat region of MUC1 encoding mucoprotein-1 (MUC1), a protein that is present in skin, breast, and lung tissue, the gastrointestinal tract, and the distal tubules of the kidney. The purpose(More)
The depletion of tylosin residues in edible turkey tissues was followed after 3 days of administration of tylosin tartrate at 500 mg l-1 in drinking water, to 30 turkeys. Immediately after the end of the treatment (day 0) and at day 1, 3, 5 and 10 of withdrawal, six turkeys (three males and three females) per time were sacrificed and samples of edible(More)
We investigated tilmicosin (TIM) metabolism, at 25, 50 or 100 microM, in cultures of primary hepatocytes from rabbits bred commercially for food and in liver microsomes prepared from both untreated and rifampicin (RIF)-treated rabbits. RIF is a well-known cytochrome P4503A (CYP 3A) inducer in rabbits and most macrolides are known to be substrates of CYP 3A.(More)
Benzydamine (BZ), a weak base and an indazole derivative with analgesic and antipyretic properties used in human and veterinary medicine, is metabolized in human, rat, cattle and rabbit to a wide range of metabolites. One of the main metabolites, BZ N-oxide (BZ-NO), is produced in the liver and brain by flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMOs), by liver and(More)
