The elimination of sotalol was studied in 25 patients with chronic renal failure. All patients were given a single 160 mg dose of sotalol orally and their sotalol serum levels were determined after 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 hours. The elmination of sotalol was distinctly slower as the serum creatinine concentration rose. The half-lives, calculated graphically,(More)
Serum clofibrinic acid (CPIB) levels after single and multiple oral doses of clofibrate were studied in 28 patients with elevated serum creatinine values. The half-life of CPIB was prolonged in proportion to the serum creatinine level (r = 0.818 p less than 0.001). Peak CPIB concentrations in serum were not affected by azotemia, although CPIB levels 24 h(More)
