Plasma levels of penbutolol (HOE 893d) were determined in eight healthy adult male subjects after oral administration of 50-mg capsules. Fast absorpiton of the drug from the gastrointestinal tract was indicated by the rapid increase in plasma levels during the absorption phase, with a peak time at about 1 hour after dosing in all subjects. After the peak(More)
Pseudomonas strains were isolated from a heavy metal contaminated sludge. Some of the strains grew on chromium (VI) containing medium, and others were inhibited in their growth. Cells were able to remove chromium from the medium. This ability was independent of the rate of their growth. The concentration of chromium (VI) of the media decreased with 15-20(More)
The introduction of colloidally stable liposomes with low drug leakage rates resulted in a renaissance in liposome applications in cancer therapy. Furthermore, a platform of sterically stabilized liposomes also allows the construction of new generations of drug delivery vehicles. These include targeted liposomes and targeted nucleic acid delivery vehicles,(More)
We determined the intraoperative serum and wound-muscle concentrations of cefazolin and cefoxitin in 40 patients who were undergoing cholecystectomies. The study employed an open-label design in which all of the patients randomly received cefazolin sodium (20 mg/kg) or cefoxitin sodium (30 mg/kg) intravenously while the patient was in the ward ("on call")(More)
In a relatively small pilot study, the half-life of elimination of hydromorphone in six subjects was 2.64 +/- 0.88 hours and the drug had a high volume of distribution, 1.22 l./kg. In addition, the drug was rapidly but incompletely absorbed after oral administration. An equation to predict the plasma concentration of hydromorphone on oral administration was(More)
Analyses of stable isotopes and trace elements in feathers may provide important information about location and habitat use during molt, thereby enabling the investigation of migratory connectivity and its ecological consequences in bird species that breed and winter in different areas. We have compared the conclusions arrived at based on the use of these(More)
The effect of administration time on the serum concentrations of cefazolin and cefoxitin achieved during surgery was studied. Patients about to undergo elective surgery were randomly selected to receive one of four antibiotic prophylaxis regimens. Two of the regimens consisted of cefazolin 20 mg/kg i.v. (as the sodium salt) administered either "on call" to(More)
The determination of drug-protein binding parameters (n's and K's) can lead to important information on the required therapeutic dosage regimen and possible clinical complications associated with competitive displacement of one drug by a concurrently administered agent. Graphical and computer estimates of the data are often incorrectly formulated, and and(More)
