OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of multiple-dose paroxetine intake on the stereoselective pharmacokinetics and the pharmacodynamics of metoprolol. METHODS We conducted an open trial with two sessions in eight healthy male volunteers. Racemic metoprolol (100 mg single oral dose) was administered before and after paroxetine treatment (20 mg/day for 6(More)
Reaction of aluminum clusters, Al n (n = 16, 17 and 18), with liquid water is investigated using quantum molecular dynamics simulations, which show rapid production of hydrogen molecules assisted by proton transfer along a chain of hydrogen bonds (H-bonds) between water molecules, i.e. Grotthuss mechanism. The simulation results provide answers to two(More)
Molecular dynamics simulations were performed to study the nanoindentation of NiAl and Ni 3 Al crystals on three surfaces: (100), (110), and (111). The calculated load-displacement curves show discrete drops at certain indentation depths, indicating dislocation bursts during indentation. The hardness values for the two materials were found to depend(More)
We propose a barrierless mechanism for describing the oxidation of Al(111) in which oxygen atoms located on the outer surface extract aluminum atoms of the surface layers through local cooperation of other pre-adsorbed oxygen atoms. We show the details of this complex chemical process that kinetically competes with the non-destructive formation of an oxygen(More)
A general bottom-up modeling strategy for gas sensor response to CO, O(2), H(2)O, and related mixtures exposure is demonstrated. In a first stage, we present first principles calculations that aimed at giving an unprecedented review of basic chemical mechanisms taking place at the sensor surface. Then, simulations of an operating gas sensor are performed(More)
Propafenone is mainly metabolized by CYP2D6 to form 5-hydroxypropafenone (5-OHP) and to a minor extent by CYP1A2 and CYP3A4 to form N-depropylpropafenone (N-DPP). The in vitro inhibitory effect of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) on the formation of both metabolites was studied, using human liver microsomes. The 5-OHP formation from racemic(More)
