AIMS To study the effect of eprosartan, a nonbiphenyl tetrazole angiotensin II receptor antagonist, on digoxin pharmacokinetics in a randomized, open-label, two period, period balanced crossover study in 12 healthy men. METHODS Each subject received a single 0.6 mg oral dose of digoxin (Lanoxicaps 0.2 mg/capsule, Glaxo Wellcome) alone or following 4 days(More)
1. The disposition and metabolic fate of ropinirole, a novel compound indicated for the symptomatic treatment of Parkinson's disease, was studied in the mouse, rat, cynomolgus monkey and man, following oral and intravenous administration of ropinirole hydrochloride. 2. In all species, nearly all of the p.o. administered dose (94%) was rapidly absorbed from(More)
BACKGROUND Dried blood spot (DBS) sampling has recently gained popularity in the bioanalysis community for quantitation of small molecules. Since the pharmaceutical industry continues to increase investment in biopharmaceuticals, DBS technologies were investigated to determine if immunoassay and/or LC-MS/MS techniques would be amenable for quantitation of a(More)
AIMS Ropinirole is a specific non-ergoline dopamine D2-receptor agonist with antiparkinsonian properties. The pharmacokinetic parameters of ropinirole taken in the fasted condition were compared with those when it was co-administered with food. METHODS This was an open, randomized, two sessions cross over study in 12 patients with Parkinson's disease,(More)
BACKGROUND The Gyrolab™ workstation benefits from fully automated transfer of reagents and samples originating from a storage microplate onto a compact disc containing solid-phase microstructures composed of a 15 nl streptavidin-derivitized bead bed. RESULTS This paper describes the development, full validation and use of the method in a regulated(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To assess the interaction between therapeutic dosages of ropinirole and L-dopa plus a decarboxylase inhibitor administered at steady state in patients with Parkinson's disease. DESIGN. Open, 6-week, overlap trial with random allocation. PATIENTS Thirty patients with Parkinson's disease not previously treated with dopamine agonists, of whom(More)
BACKGROUND The cardioprotective effects of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and analogs have been previously reported. We tested the hypothesis that albiglutide, a novel long half-life analog of GLP-1, may protect the heart against I/R injury by increasing carbohydrate utilization and improving cardiac energetic efficiency. METHODS/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS(More)
BACKGROUND Domain antibodies (dAbs; ∼10-15 kDa) are made up of the variable heavy chain or the variable light chain of the antibody structure, and retain binding capability. dAbs have proved difficult to detect in plasma using immunoassay without specific antibodies raised against the dAb. RESULTS A sensitive and selective UPLC-MS/MS method for the(More)
Purpose. To describe the pharmacokinetics of SK&F 107647, a synthetichematoregulatory peptide, in healthy volunteers and in patientswith adenocarcinoma.Methods. SK&F 107647 pharmacokinetics were evaluated in 2dose-escalation studies. Volunteers received SK&F 107647 as single15-minute iv infusion doses of 1, 10, 100, 500, and 1000 μg/kg. Cancerpatients(More)
The objectives of this study were to measure the pharmacokinetics of ropinirole at steady state when the drug is used as an adjunct to L-dopa and evaluate the long-term tolerability of ropinirole in this indication. Twenty-four patients who were taking L-dopa for Parkinson's disease and experiencing a lack of symptomatic control were recruited. Patients(More)
