Pharmacokinetics, bioavailability, and local tolerance (at the site of intramuscular administration) of a new formulation of teicoplanin (400 mg/3 mL) were investigated in 24 normal, healthy, male volunteers. A single dose of 6 mg/kg was administered intravenously and intramuscularly using a randomized crossover design. Volunteers and investigator were(More)
Risedronate is a pyridinyl bisphosphonate approved for the treatment of Paget's disease (US-FDA) and in development for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. This study examined risedronate pharmacokinetics and tolerability after oral administration using a randomized, double-blind, parallel-group design. Healthy male and female volunteers (n =(More)
Enoximone possesses both positive inotropic and vasodilatory activities and may be useful in the treatment of patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). In all animal species investigated (rat, dog, monkey and man), the major urinary metabolite is the sulfide oxidation product (sulfoxide); very little unchanged drug appears in urine. Both in vitro and in(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Lenvatinib is an oral, multitargeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor under clinical investigation in solid tumours. This study evaluated the influence of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) inhibition (single-dose rifampicin) and simultaneous cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP3A4)/P-gp induction (multiple-dose rifampicin) on lenvatinib pharmacokinetics.

We report 1,166 tumors of the eyelids that were treated by single or fractionated exposures to doses of 20-60 Gy. The five year tumor control rate was 95% for basal cell and 93.3% for squamous cell carcinoma. Irradiation was equally successful in primary cases and in those recurrent following surgery. Recurrence following irradiation was managed by surgery(More)
The metabolic fate of azimilide in man is unusual as it undergoes a cleavage in vivo resulting in the formation of two classes of structurally distinct metabolites. During a metabolite profiling study conducted in human volunteers to assess the contribution of all pathways to the clearance of (14)C-azimilide, greater than 82% of radioactivity was recovered(More)
Eight pediatric accidental overdoses of diphenoxylate-atropine (Lomotil) are reported, and 28 literature cases are reviewed. This overdose is primarily an opioid intoxication, occasionally associated with atropine toxicity. Only 6 of 36 children showed signs of atropine overdose (central nervous system excitement, hypertension, fever, flushed dry skin).(More)
AIMS To determine the relationship between risedronate pharmacokinetics and renal function. METHODS Risedronate was administered to adult men and women (n=21) with various degrees of renal function (creatinine clearance 15-126 ml min-1 ) as a single oral dose of 30 mg. Serum samples were obtained for 72 h after dosing, and urine samples were collected for(More)
In 1,000 cases of phencyclidine (PCP) intoxication evaluated at the time of first examination in an emergency department, the incidence of "typical" findings was found to be lower than has been reported previously. Nystagmus and hypertension occurred in only 57% of our cases; some patients had only one of these findings and many had neither. The incidence(More)
Lenvatinib is an orally available multi-targeted tyrosine kinase inhibitor with anti-angiogenic and antitumor activity. To get more insight into the disposition of lenvatinib, a mass balance study was performed in patients with advanced solid tumors. A single oral 24 mg (100 μCi) dose of 14C-lenvatinib was administered to six patients, followed by(More)
