Indiplon (NBI 34060; N-methyl-N-[3-[3-(2-thienylcarbonyl)-pyrazolo[1,5-alpha]pyrimidin-7-yl]phenyl]acetamide), a novel pyrazolopyrimidine and high-affinity allosteric potentiator of GABA(A) receptor function, was profiled for its effects in rodents after oral administration. In mice, indiplon inhibited locomotor activity (ED(50) = 2.7 mg/kg p.o.) at doses(More)
We studied the isolated blood-free perfused nonclipped kidneys from the 2-kidney Goldblatt hypertensive rat model (GHR) to evaluate intrinsic excretory responses to changes in perfusion pressure. We examined kidneys from 10 control rats (in vivo systolic BP 110 +/- 3.6 mm Hg), from 9 rats with nonmalignant hypertension (HBP) (in vivo systolic BP 158 +/- 6.5(More)
We have compared the performance of an off-axis (knife-edge) photorefractor with that of an on-axis (isotropic) system. Normal infants and children between the ages of 8 and 208 weeks were photographed with each camera both with and without cycloplegia. Refractive errors were estimated for each technique based on equations derived from ray-tracing. These(More)
Dialysis dose is given by the index KT/V, where K is the dialyser urea clearance, T the duration of dialysis and V the notional urea distribution volume. KT/V may be calculated using the single pool model and an iterative calculation which requires a computer program. Three estimates of KT/V, each based on simple correction of the log ratio in (C0/C1),(More)
AIMS While the epidemiology of amputations in patients with burns has been investigated previously, the effect of an amputation on burn size and its impact on fluid management have not been considered in the literature. Fluid resuscitation volumes are based on the percentage of the total body surface area (%TBSA) burned calculated during the primary survey.(More)
