Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a polypeptide hormone secreted by the l-cells in the gastrointestinal tract, has shown promising effects as a new treatment modality for patients with Type II (non-insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus. However, the pharmacokinetic profile of native GLP-1 with a rapid elimination has limited its therapeutic potential. NN2211(More)
We have previously shown that type 2 diabetic patients have decreased plasma concentrations of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) compared with healthy subjects after ingestion of a standard mixed meal. This decrease could be caused by differences in the metabolism of GLP-1. The objective of this study was to examine the pharmacokinetics of GLP-1 in healthy(More)
A series of very potent derivatives of the 30-amino acid peptide hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is described. The compounds were all derivatized with fatty acids in order to protract their action by facilitating binding to serum albumin. GLP-1 had a potency (EC(50)) of 55 pM for the cloned human GLP-1 receptor. Many of the compounds had similar or(More)
The pharmacokinetic properties of amoxycillin, and its penetration into respiratory tract tissues (alveolar macrophages, bronchial secretions, bronchial mucosa, lung tissue and lymph nodes), were determined in 20 healthy female pigs weighing 29 to 55 kg, after a single intravenous dose of 8.6 mg kg(-1) bodyweight. Following intravenous administration the(More)
The objective of the present analysis was to explore the use of stochastic differential equations (SDEs) in population pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) modeling. The intra-individual variability in nonlinear mixed-effects models based on SDEs is decomposed into two types of noise: a measurement and a system noise term. The measurement noise(More)
Amoxycillin was administered to pigs intravenously (i.v.), intramuscularly (i.m.) and orally (p.o.), in a cross-over design to examine the bioavailability (F) of various drug formulations. These included: a sodium salt for reconstitution in water and administration i.v.; trihydrate salt in an oil base for intramuscular administration producing(More)
The standard software for non-linear mixed-effect analysis of pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic (PK/PD) data is NONMEM while the non-linear mixed-effects package NLME is an alternative as long as the models are fairly simple. We present the nlmeODE package which combines the ordinary differential equation (ODE) solver package odesolve and the non-linear mixed(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the influence of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetics of desmopressin. METHODS Twenty-four subjects were enrolled in the study, 18 with varying degrees of renal impairment and six healthy volunteers. Each subject received a single intravenous dose of 2 microg desmopressin. Blood and urine samples were collected for 24 h and(More)
OBJECTIVE The primary objective of the present study was to investigate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of a single dose of NN2211, a long-acting glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) derivative, in healthy male subjects. The secondary objective was to investigate the pharmacodynamics of NN2211. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In a double-blind,(More)
The pharmokinetic properties of amoxycillin, and its penetration into respiratory tract tissue, were determined in 18 Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae infected pigs, after a single i.v. dose of 8.6 mg amoxycillin kg(-1) bodyweight. Pleuropneumoniae was produced experimentally in pigs by an aerosol infection model. The infection created a homogeneous(More)
