The acute effect of three non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, ibuprofen, acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) and indoprofen, on faecal blood loss was investigated in 15 subjects by means of 51Cr-labelled erythrocytes. Ibuprofen (900 mg/day for 5 days) and indoprofen capsules and tablets (300 mg and 600 mg/day for 5 days, respectively) slightly increased the(More)
The effect of food on bioavailability of indobufen tablets was investigated in 6 healthy volunteers. Subsequently, the same subjects took 100 mg b.i.d. for 7 days. Plasma levels and urinary excretion of indobufen were determined by GLC. Platelet aggregation induced by several concentrations of adrenaline was determined turbidimetrically at various times(More)
Malassezia furfur, a lipophilic yeast that is the etiologic agent of tinea versicolor, has not been considered as a cause of serious illness in adults in the past. Two adults are described in whom Malassezia furfur fungemia developed while receiving total parenteral nutrition supplemented with lipids. The organism was identified in blood cultures from both(More)
Six healthy volunteers received single iv and oral doses of 2-[p-(1-oxo-2-isoindolinyl)phenyl] butyric acid 100 mg (indobufen; K 3920), an inhibitor of platelet aggregation. Plasma levels and urinary excretion of the drug were determined by GLC. Collagen-induced platelet aggregation was assessed turbidimetrically at various intervals after administration.(More)
The influence of food on the bioavailability of two oral dosage forms (100-mg capsules and 200-mg tablets) of indoprofen, a new propionic acid derivative with marked anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, has been investigated. Plasma levels and urinary excretion of indoprofen were determined both in the fasting state and after a standard meal in(More)
A complete crossover trial was undertaken in six healthy volunteers to gain information on dose-effect responses to indobufen by assessing the intensity and duration of the effect of 3 single oral doses of the drug on platelet aggregation induced by threshold concentration of ADP and by 3 added doses of collagen. The results of the study confirm that the(More)
In a double-blind study, indoprofen was superior to placebo in decreasing pain in patients with primary and metastatic cancer and with neuralgia. A single oral dose of 200 mg was more active than a 100-mg dose. The preferences of patients proved to be a more sensitive parameter in this study than scores of pain intensity, pain relief, and other related(More)
Parametric tests for bioassay data are commonly applied to scores of pain intensity and relief for the assessment of potency ratios of analgesic drugs. It has been demonstrated, however, that scores derived from semiquantitative scales often deviate from normal distribution. In addition, when scores decrease as a consequence of analgesic treatment, the(More)
