The pharmacokinetics of intranasal (i.n.) neostigmine was compared with the intravenous (i.v.) route in 6 healthy volunteers with a mean age of 25.5 years and a mean weight of 65.8 kg in a crossover design. The doses used were 0.5 mg i.v. and 21.6 mg i.n. Neostigmine was determined by HPLC. The plasmatic profiles of the two routes were similar. An early(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY To verify the single dose bioavailability of two oral formulations of soy isoflavones, with and without lactobacilli, in menopausal women in antibiotic therapy. METHODS Twelve menopause women (mean age 54.3 years, BMI 25.0 kg/m2) participated in a controlled cross-over study. Reference and test treatments were: R = tablets containing(More)
Efficacy of a new patented proprietary combination of natural nutraceuticals (PN) containing natural hypolipidemic as red yeast, policosanol and berberine was tested in a large study on dyslipidemic patients in clinical practice. A parallel, controlled, randomized, multicenter study was designed. After 2 weeks on a stable dietary regimen, the patients were(More)
In order to clarify the interaction of betahistine (BH) and its metabolites [aminoethylpyridine (AEP) and hydroxyethylpyridine (HEP)] for receptors that mediate the physio-pharmacological activities of histamine, we performed in vitro competition binding studies to obtain their binding affinity profile for H(1)-, H(2)- and H(3)-histamine receptors prepared(More)
The single-dose and steady-state pharmacokinetics of teniloxazine, an investigational drug with antidepressant and anti-anoxic properties, were compared in 12 healthy volunteers and 12 cirrhotic patients, following oral administration of 80 mg teniloxazine maleate every 12 h for 7 days. In healthy volunteers, an increase in oral clearance, CLo (from a mean(More)
A retrospective study of 88 cases of renal cell carcinoma is presented with emphasis on the follow-up and progestogens administration. Between the statistically homogeneous groups of patients treated with progesterone capronate and with other therapeutic regimens, no statistical difference in actuarial survival rate could be detected.
A double-blind study comparing the efficacy and tolerability of dothiepin with that of placebo in the treatment of primary fibromyalgia syndrome was carried out. Dothiepin was shown to improve significantly the condition of patients with primary fibromyalgia syndrome and there was a significant difference between dothiepin and placebo in all the clinical(More)
The efficacy of intranasally administered neostigmine was tested in 22 patients with generalized myasthenia gravis (MG). Topical therapy to the highly vascularized oropharynx proved to be quickly effective in 5–15 min both clinically and electrophysiologically. Twenty-eight MG patients were then recruited from different centres and their morning doses of(More)
The bioavailability of granules and tablet flurbiprofen in 100 mg single dose was crossover compared in 6 healthy volunteers (mean aged 26.8 years). The granules showed an earlier peaktime and a lower maximum concentration than the tablet. Area under the curve and half-time in terminal phase were similar, with the granule relative bioavailability of 0.98.
