Moxestrol, the 11 beta-methoxy derivative of ethynyl estradiol and a highly potent estrogen, is rapidly distributed in the body (AIVD = 148.6 +/- 19.71, MCR = 79.9 +/- 10.5 1/h) after i.v. administration because it is not bound by SBP and has low affinity for albumin. Its oral bioavailability is about 33% after administration of 30 or 100 micrograms to(More)
Although orchiectomy, estrogens and LHRH agonists suppress testicular androgens, they are without effect on adrenal androgens which are converted into dihydrotestosterone in the prostate. It is therefore necessary to develop substances able to block the action of all androgens, whatever their source, on target organs. The non-steroid, Anandron (RU 23908),(More)
The pharmacokinetics and metabolism of moxestrol have been compared in the rat, dog and monkey (rhesus and baboon) and, in some instances, confronted with data simultaneously obtained for ethynl estradiol and previously obtained in humans. The apparent initial volume of distribution (AIVD) of total radioactivity after i.v. administration was of the order of(More)
Cefodizime is a new expanded-spectrum cephalosporin for parenteral use which possesses a broad antibacterial spectrum and potent antibacterial activity and is stable against most beta-lactamases. The aim of this study was to assess the pharmacokinetics of cefodizime, administered intravenously, over the dose range of 0.5 to 3.0 g in healthy volunteers.(More)
Reference compounds for the subsequent identification of the metabolites of the potent estrogen, moxestrol (R 2858) , in various species were isolated from the bile of phenobarbital pretreated rats or obtained via enzymatic hydroxylation by microorganisms. A few of them were prepared by chemical synthesis. The structures of all these compounds were(More)
Three pharmacokinetic studies involving single oral doses of cefpodoxime proxetil in healthy volunteers are reported. The first study was to determine the absolute bioavailability of cefpodoxime, the second was to study the relationship between the oral dose of cefpodoxime proxetil and pharmacokinetic parameters of cefpodoxime, and the third was to compare(More)
