The activity of arylamine acetyltransferase with p-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), sulfamethazine (SMZ), and aminozolamide as substrates was studied in rabbit tissue homogenates of the corneal epithelium, stroma-endothelium, iris-ciliary process, and liver. Rabbits were classified as rapid or slow acetylators with respect to their rate of hepatic acetylation of(More)
In an attempt to relate the hallucinogenic potencies in man of some biologically important amphetamines and phenethylamines, the 1-octanol-water partition coefficients for 11 amphetamines were determined. Using these values and published Hansch pi constants, the log P for 17 additional amines was estimated. It was found that lipophilicity, as measured by(More)
The use of steroidal compounds to reduce the inflammation and scarring associated with herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) stromal keratitis can result in severe exacerbation of the corneal disease. We compared the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) flurbiprofen sodium with dexamethasone for the treatment of HSV-1 induced corneal stromal disease in(More)
We have previously determined that 6-amino-2-benzothiazolesulfonamide (aminozolamide) significantly lowers IOP in rabbits and, more importantly, in ocular hypertensive human subjects. Results from in vitro experiments established that both the inhibitory activity of aminozolamide against carbonic anhydrase B as well as the penetration rate across excised(More)
The ability of 2-aminotetralins (2-ATs), 2-aminoindanes (2-AIs), morphine (M) and clonidine (CLON) to alter neuroeffector transmission was studied on field-stimulated (FS) guinea-pig ilea (GPI). The activity of these compounds to inhibit K+, histamine (H), actylcholine (ACh), nicotine (Nic) and serotonin (5-HT) induced contractions was determined using(More)
N-Alkylated derivatives of 2-amino-4,7-dimethoxyindan were prepared for evaluation of central and peripheral dopaminergic activity using biochemical and behavioral tests in the rat and cardiovascular responses in the cat. 2-(Di-n-propylamino)-4,7-dimethoxyindan (4e) demonstrated equal activity with apomorphine to activate peripheral presynaptic dopamine(More)
In order to elucidate the pharmacological properties of a series of 1-phenyl-2-aminopropane and 2-amino-1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydronaphthalene derivatives, their ability to inhibit a number of apomorphine-induced behaviors was investigated. Several members of the series under study were potent inhibitors of apomorphine-induced pecking behavior in pigeons, emesis(More)
