Analytical methods for the determination of melagatran (H 319/68) in biological samples by liquid chromatography (LC)-positive electrospray ionization mass spectrometry using multiple reaction monitoring are described. Melagatran in plasma was isolated by solid-phase extraction on octylsilica, either in separate extraction tubes or in 96-well plates.(More)
Inhibition of AMP deaminase (AMPD) holds the potential to elevate intracellular adenosine and AMP levels and, therefore, to augment adenosine signaling and activation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). To test the latter hypothesis, novel AMPD pan inhibitors were synthesized and explored using a panel of in vitro, ex vivo, and in vivo models focusing(More)
An analytical method was developed for the determination of the enantiomers of felodipine, a dihydropyridine-type calcium antagonist, in human blood plasma. Felodipine was extracted from plasma using toluene as extraction solvent. The enantiomers were separated on a cellulose tris(4-methyl benzoate) stationary phase (Chiralcel OJ-R) using(More)
We demonstrate here a novel use of statistical tools to study intra- and inter-site assay variability of five early drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics in vitro assays over time. Firstly, a tool for process control is presented. It shows the overall assay variability but allows also the following of changes due to assay adjustments and can additionally(More)
The ganglion blocking drug chlorisondamine given frequently and in gradually increasing doses over a period of time to adult rats causes the activity of choline acetyltransferase to fall in the postganglionic parasympathetic nerves of parotid glands. Such a "pharmacologically" decentralized gland was also found to have lost weight and to have developed a(More)
