The effects of the intravenous administration of cocaine (0.05-5.0 mg/kg) on body temperature, heart rate, respiration rate and several unconditioned behavioral categories were ascertained in unanesthetized male rhesus monkeys. Statistically significant increases in body temperature, respiration rate and heart rate occurred only after the largest dosage(More)
An improved synthesis of norcocaine, a metabolite of cocaine, is reported. Following intravenous administration to a rhesus monkey, respiratory effects were similar to those observed following cocaine treatment. In addition, clonic convulsions, hypothermia, and mydriasis resulted. Norcocaine could be responsible for part of the pharmacological activity of(More)
Several major trends were observed in these findings from the 1990-91 National Pharmacists' Compensation Survey (for details see the final report). Only 72.6% of licensed pharmacists were working full-time in pharmacy; another 14.4% were working part-time in pharmacy, and nearly 13.0% were either not working in pharmacy or not working at all. Although 90.0%(More)
A dissolution apparatus was constructed to evaluate tolnaftate release from topical powders. It consisted of a mesh unit to support the powder, a receptor phase, and a sink. This report describes three parameters that were used to evaluate this technique. First, three different areas of contact were examined using 52-, 41-, or 30-µm mesh supports. Second,(More)
Norcocaine was administered intravenously (0.05, 0.5, 5.0 mg/kg) to three chaired unanesthetized male rhesus monkeys and to three chaired male cynomolgus monkeys. Respiration rate, heart rate and rectal temperature were monitored. In the rhesus monkeys tachycardia and hyperventilation resulted. However, similar qualitative and quantitative changes were not(More)
A procedure is described which allows chronic dosing and blood collection from awake monkeys. The procedure involves only minor surgical anesthesia and allows the same vein of the animal to be used several different times with home-cage recuperation periods intervening between sequential chronic catheterizations.
The described pharmacokinetic analysis involved two separate studies on nine dogs randomly assigned to three groups of three dogs each. In the first study, the effect of varying the dosage of tolazamide was examined. The second study concerned the effect of varying the dosage of oxyphenbutazone on tolazamide. A 3 x 3 Latin square was used to study both(More)
