BACKGROUND Despite demonstrated efficacy of ϵ-aminocaproic acid (EACA) in reducing blood loss in adolescents undergoing spinal fusion, there are no population-specific pharmacokinetic data to guide dosing. The aim of this study was to determine the pharmacokinetics of EACA in adolescents undergoing spinal fusion surgery and make dosing recommendations. (More)
BACKGROUND ACE inhibition (ACEI) attenuates post-myocardial infarction (MI) LV remodeling, but the effects of angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT(1)) antagonism alone or in combination with ACEI are unclear. Accordingly, we investigated the effects of AT(1) antagonism, ACEI, and their combination in a well-characterized ovine postinfarction model. METHODS(More)
The serum uric acid concentrations of patients being treated in Hong Kong and Singapore with a daily regimen consisting of streptomycin, isoniazid, rifampicin and pyrazinamide or a control regimen of daily streptomycin, p-amino-salicylic acid (PAS) and isoniazid were determined by the phosphotungstate method. Arthralgia and elevated serum uric acid levels(More)
