Pravastatin, a potent anti-hypercholesteremic drug, has been developed by Bristol-Myers Squibb for treatment of hypercholesterolemia and other related diseases. Several structurally related compounds (SQ 31,554, SQ 31,879, SQ 31,947, SQ 32,391, SQ 32,770, SQ 32,390 and SQ 32,469) modified at the 3-position of the hexahydronaphthalene ring system of(More)
A specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay (RIA) for the measurement of SQ 33,600 in biological fluids has been developed. The assay utilizes a SQ 33,600 polyclonal antibody, [125I]iodohistamine-SQ 33,600 radiolabel, and standards in serum. Satisfactory zero binding and sensitivity were obtained after an overnight incubation at 4 degrees C. Separation of the(More)
The pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and safety of fosinopril sodium (SQ 28,555), a new orally active angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, was evaluated in 73 healthy men in two separate studies. In study I, doses ranging from 10 to 640 mg were administered once daily for 3 days to seven groups of five subjects each. Serum aldosterone levels,(More)
Fosinopril (SQ 28,555) is a member of a new chemical class of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors being developed by The Squibb Institute for Medical Research. During or following absorption, fosinopril, a prodrug, is hydrolyzed pharmacologically to the active diacid, SQ 27,519. A specific radioimmunoassay (RIA) for the measurement of SQ 27,519 in(More)
A radioimmunoassay for the measurement of total captopril in serum and heparinized plasma has been developed. Prior to the assay, serum or heparinized plasma samples are subjected to tri-n-butyl-phosphine reduction followed by N-ethylmaleimide (NEM) derivatization. The assay utilizes in-house NEM-captopril antibody, [125I]NEM-captopril radiolabel and human(More)
Gadoteridol, a nonionic gadolinium chelate, is currently being evaluated for contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging. A radioimmunoassay (RIA) has been developed for the measurement of gadoteridol in biological fluids. The RIA has a range of 0 to 25 micrograms/mL and has the sensitivity to detect 0.05 microgram/mL of gadoteridol. Satisfactory zero(More)
Two cell lines, RR5.ET-1 and RR1.ET-1, that produce monoclonal antibodies specific for the carboxyl-terminal heptapeptide of endothelin-1 (ET-1) have been cloned and stabilized. An RIA was developed to facilitate the evaluation and characterization of these monoclonal antibodies. The affinity constant of each MAb for ET-1, as determined by Scatchard(More)
