PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that modification of release pattern of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) formulations shifts gastrointestinal (GI) toxicity of the drugs from the upper GI region to the distal intestine. METHODS We assessed tiaprofenic acid (TA)-induced upper and lower increased GI permeability (a surrogate marker of toxicity)(More)
PURPOSE For simple pharmacokinetic compartmental models, analytical solution to the governing differential equations along with common graphical methods provide a mean to evaluate the associated rate constants. These graphical methods, however, can not be used for the more complex multi-compartment models. Furthermore, parameter estimation using slope and(More)
Immobilization of enzymes on nonporous supports provides a suitable model for investigating the effect of external mass transfer limitation on the reaction rate in the absence of internal diffusional resistance. In this study, deacylation of penicillin G was investigated using penicillin acylase immobilized on ultrafine silica particles. Kinetic studies(More)
Monometallic and bimetallic supported metal oxides catalysts on γ-alumina were prepared by heterogeneous deposition-precipitation. The γ-alumina used as a support was synthesized by the sol-gel and the co-precipitation methods. Supports and catalysts were characterized by Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area, X-ray diffraction (XRD), field-emission(More)
A simple optimization methodology is applied to estimate the intrinsic kinetic parameters for both reversible and irreversible unireactant immobilized enzyme systems that follow the Michaelis-Menten mechanism. The method utilizes a direct-search optimization algorithm along with the numerical solution of the governing differential equations. The usefulness(More)
