The pharmacokinetics of oxytetracycline given in a single dose (22 mg/kg) either IV or IM was studied in 4 female buffalo calves. The half-life (t1/2) after IV administration varied between 169.02 and 216.56 minutes and that after IM administration, between 630 and 990 minutes. The drug was distributed well in the body after IM administration (Vdarea 1.18(More)
Indomethacin, a known inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis, administered topically as a 2.5% solution, intradermally in 10 mug doses, and orally in a dose of 150 mg/day for 2 days did not diminish the delayed erythema produced a long-wave ultraviolet light (320-400 nm). The delayed phototoxic erythema produced by 8-methoxypsoralen and subsequent exposure(More)
Twenty-six patients with extensive psoriasis were treated with a 3-week course of methotrexate followed by a combination of ultraviolet B (UVB) therapy and methotrexate. A plaque of psoriasis was shielded during UV therapy to serve as a control. When lesions cleared to less than 5% of body involvement, the methotrexate was stopped and UVB therapy alone was(More)
Specific damage by selectively absorbed, pulsed lasers can be predicted based on physical models. Thermally mediated alterations can be confined to pigmented targets from the level of subcellular organelles (e.g., mela-nosomes) to large multicellular tissue structures (e.g., blood vessels) by the appropriate manipulation of wavelength and pulse duration.(More)
Physical models predict that ultraviolet laser radiation of appropriately brief pulses can selectively alter melanin-containing cellular targets in human skin. We exposed skin of normal human volunteers to brief (20 nanosecond) 351-nm wave length pulses from a XeF excimer laser, predicting that those cells containing the greatest quantities of melanized(More)
During this study, a minor surgical technique was developed for the separation of urine and faeces in birds and fate of 32P malathion was studied, following a single oral dose of 394 mg/kg. The birds showed characteristic signs and symptoms of organophosphorus poisoning and the results suggested that the compound is rapidly absorbed from the(More)
A method for the separation of urine and faeces in the hen was developed and the biological fate of 32P malathion, following a single oral dose of 262.40 mg/kg body weight was studied. The results suggested that the compound was rapidly absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract; significant quantities being detected in the plasma and whole blood 1/2 hr after(More)
Brief pulses of 577-nm radiation have recently been shown to selectively damage superficial cutaneous blood vessels, resulting clinically in purpura. There was a sharp threshold of exposure dose necessary for causing purpura in any given subject, which correlated with histologic evidence of extravasation and specific vascular injury. As a means of studying(More)
