The 21-aminosteroid antioxidant U-74006F (1) is being developed as an iv injectable agent for the treatment of human CNS trauma and ischemia. Because of its poor water solubility, the plasma compatibility of the parenteral formulation of 1 was evaluated using three models: (I) static solubility, (II) aggregometric, and (III) dynamic flow. The flow model was(More)
The in vitro dissolution mechanism of an amorphous solid dispersion (ASD) remains elusive and highly individualized, yet rational design of ASDs with optimal performance and prediction of their in vitro/in vivo performance are very much desirable in the pharmaceutical industry. To this end, we carried out comprehensive investigation of various ASD systems(More)
BMS-B is a highly lipophilic compound (clog P 7.72) with poor aqueous solubility (<10 ng/mL at pH 1 and 6.5). The compound exhibits low bioavailability in preclinical species when dosed as cosolvent solution formulations, with reduced exposure upon dose escalation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate spray-dried dispersions (SDDs) for enhancing oral(More)
Duodenal bile obtained from patients with gallstones who were acutely infused with chenodeoxycholic acid, ursodeoxycholic acid, or cholic acid were examined for the propensity toward the formation of a liquid crystalline mesomorphic phase when cholesterol gallstones were incubated in these bile acids. Bile taken from patients infused with ursodeoxycholic(More)
A comprehensive 8-drug metabolic cocktail was designed to simultaneously target 6 Cytochrome P450 enzymes and 2 membrane transporters. This study aimed to assess the pre-absorption risk of this new metabolic cocktail which contained metoprolol, caffeine, midazolam, pravastatin, flurbiprofen, omeprazole, digoxin and montelukast. This paper describes a(More)
Structure-activity relationships in a series of (2-oxo-1,4-benzodiazepin-3-yl)-succinamides identified highly potent inhibitors of γ-secretase mediated signaling of Notch1/2/3/4 receptors. On the basis of its robust in vivo efficacy at tolerated doses in Notch driven leukemia and solid tumor xenograft models, 12 (BMS-906024) was selected as a candidate for(More)
Perturbation of OAT1- and OAT3-mediated transport can alter the exposure, efficacy, and safety of drugs. Although these have been reports of the endogenous biomarkers for OAT1/3, none of these have all of the characteristics required for a clinical useful biomarker. Cynomolgus monkeys were treated with intravenous probenecid (PROB) at a dose of 40 mg/kg in(More)
Cholesterol dissolution rate accelerators, such as benzalkonium chloride, function by reducing the interfacial barrier that exists between the negatively-charged bile acid micelle and the negatively-charged cholesterol surface. It has been proposed that this reaction is accomplished by the binding of the positively-charged accelerator to the(More)
