The kinetics of 14C-metformin have been studied in five healthy subjects after oral and intravenous administration. The intravenous dose was distributed to a small central compartment of 9.9 +/- 1.61 (X +/- SE), from which its elimination could be described using three-compartment open model. The elimination half-life from plasma was 1.7 +/- 0.1 h. Urinary(More)
Agriculture is one of the largest contributors of the anthropogenic greenhouse gases (GHGs) responsible for global warming. Measurements of gas fluxes from dung pats suggest that dung is a source of GHGs, but whether these emissions are modified by arthropods has not been studied. A closed chamber system was used to measure the fluxes of carbon dioxide(More)
To study its pharmacokinetics and especially microCi/100 mg was infused i.v. in 8 patients with a T-tube inserted in the common bile duct at choledocholithotomy 7-10 days prior to the study. Bile was collected in fractions by continuous suction over a 24 h period. Blood samples were taken and urine collected up to 48 h after the dose. Tolfenamic acid and(More)
Disposition of [14C]bumetanide administered intravenously to four healthy volunteers could be described by a triexponential equation. The mean half-lives associated with each exponent were 5.9 min, 46 min, and 3.1 hr, respectively. The largest fraction of dose was eliminated during the second phase; only 17% was eliminated during the last phase. The total(More)
To study the effects of renal failure on bumetanide kinetics, we administered single intravenous doses of 1.0 mg/3.08 microCi 14C-bumetanide to six healthy subjects and 22 patients with variable degrees of renal failure. The kinetics of 14C-bumetanide and total 14C were adequately described by a two-compartment open model in the control subjects and in the(More)
Single doses of 14C-glipizide were given intravenously (1 mg/4.7 microCi) and orally (5 mg/8.0 microCi) to six healthy volunteers in a crossover study to investigate both pharmacokinetics and effects of glipizide. Based on recoveries of total 14C in urine the gastrointestinal absorption of glipizide was complete. The extent of first-pass metabolism averaged(More)
1. The fate of bumetanide was studied in four healthy volunteers both after intravenous oral administration of [14C]-bumetanide (0.5 mg). 2. The absorption of oral [14C]-bumetanide was rapid (absorption half-life 0.61 h) and complete with a urinary recovery of about 80% of the intravenous or oral dose during 48 h. 3. The elimination of [14C]-bumetanide was(More)
The initial stability of femoral neck osteosynthesis provided by three self-reinforced poly-L-lactide (SR-PLLA) or three metallic cannulated screws was compared. A standard transverse subcapital osteotomy was created with a hand saw in 19 pairs of human cadaver femora. Two fixation methods were randomly used in each pair. Fixations were exposed to a(More)
A method for approximating light scattering properties of strongly absorbing facetted particles which are large compared to the wavelength is presented. It consists in adding the approximated external diffraction and reflection far fields and is demonstrated for a smooth hexagonal prism. This computationally fast method is extended towards prisms with(More)
