A 67-year-old woman presented with a pleural effusion and a tumor in the right pleural wall. Histological examination of thoracoscopic tumor and pleural biopsy specimens showed infiltration by medium sized cells, some of which showed plasmacytoid differentiation. In view of the presence of IgM paraproteinemia and bone marrow involvement by lymphoma cells,(More)
We present a case of toxicity caused by a drug interaction between capecitabine and phenytoin (PHT). The drug combination elevated the plasma level of PHT in a patient on chemotherapy with capecitabine for colorectal cancer. Our patient was a 44-year-old woman diagnosed with epilepsy in her 20's, being treated with valproic acid (VPA) and PHT. Adjuvant(More)
In order to evaluate oral dosage forms of d-alpha-tocopherol acetate (VEA), d-alpha-tocopherol (VE) concentration in the plasma was examined following oral administration of three VEA preparations; lecithin-dispersed aqueous preparation, polysorbate 80 (PS-80)-solubilized aqueous solution and soybean oil solution. The lecithin-dispersed preparation gave the(More)
China saves an extraordinary share of its GDP; moreover, this share has been growing steadily over the last two decades. More puzzling, however, is the persistence of this savings behavior in the face of the high rate of growth of the economy – a rate that shows no sign of abating. A standard neoclassical model would not predict such a relationship between(More)
OBJECTIVE Recent reports have shbown an increase in serum phenytoin levels resulting in phenytoin toxicity after initiation of luoropyrimidine chemotherapy. To prevent phenytoin intoxication, phenytoin dosage must be adjusted. We sought to develop a pharmacokinetic model of the interaction between phenytoin and capecitabine. METHODS We developed the(More)
The effect of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTG) in lecithin-dispersed d-alpha-tocopherol acetate (VEA) preparation on intestinal absorption of VEA was investigated in rats using the in situ loop experiment. When VEA preparations containing soybean phosphatidylcholine (PC) and various amounts of MCTG were administered, the amount of VEA absorbed in 2 h was(More)
The effect of formulations of lecithin-dispersed preparation on the absorption of d-alpha-tocopherol acetate (VEA) from the small intestine was investigated in rats. When lecithin-dispersed preparations containing VEA or polysorbate 80 (PS-80)-solubilized solution of VEA were intraduodenally administered, VEA was hydrolyzed to d-alpha-tocopherol (VE) and(More)
