AIMS The aim of this study was to compare salivary miconazole pharmacokinetics following once daily application of bioadhesive tablets (50 or 100 mg), vs the current treatment with a gel (3 times a day, 375 mg day(-1)). METHODS A three way cross over study was carried out in 18 healthy subjects (nine males, nine females) with a 1 week washout period(More)
The aim of this study was to develop sustained release plant extracts as a potential alternative to antibiotic growth promoters for growing pigs. Pellets with a core based on microcrystalline cellulose and 3 active compounds (eugenol, carvacrol, and thymol) were prepared using rotary fluidized-bed technology. Two particle sizes were produced that had a mean(More)
Uracil-Ftorafur (UFT) combines the 5-fluorouracil (FU) prodrug tegafur with uracil (at a 1:4 molar ratio), which is a competitive inhibitor of dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD), the limiting enzyme of FU catabolism. As a result, sustained FU concentrations are obtained in both plasma and tumor. UFT is an effective alternative to intravenous(More)
Various aspects of bioequivalence are investigated in this paper. Some aspects dealing with bioequivalence studies conducted either during the development of the drug or after its marketing will be presented and discussed: • Bioequivalence of highly variable drugs with the associated problem of widening the acceptance range or alternative solutions •(More)
The aim of the study was to assess the ability of a dynamic in vitro model to determine the digestibility of OM, CP, and starch compared with a validated, static, in vitro method and in vivo ileal digestibility obtained from growing pigs fitted with a T-cannula. Five experimental diets with different carbohydrate types and level were assessed: a standard(More)
The aim of this study was to develop sustained release microspheres of capsicum oleoresin as an alternative to in-feed additives. Two spray-cooling technologies, a fluidized air bed using a spray nozzle system and a vibrating nozzle system placed on top of a cooling tower, were used to microencapsulate 20% of capsicum oleoresin in a hydrogenated, rapeseed(More)
The pharmacokinetics of metoprolol were assessed from the data of 3 experiments in which intravenous deuterated metoprolol was given concomitantly with various oral metoprolol formulations to healthy volunteers. The plasma levels after intravenous administration were well described by a biexponential equation. However, a deviation from a pure biphasic(More)
The objective of this study was development of accelerated in vitro release method for peptide loaded PLGA microspheres using flow-through apparatus and assessment of the effect of dissolution parameters (pH, temperature, medium composition) on drug release rate and mechanism. Accelerated release conditions were set as pH 2 and 45°C, in phosphate buffer(More)
12013 Background: This phase II randomized bioequivalence cross-over study compared the tolerance and PK profiles of oral UFT (tegafur-uracil) given as 3 daily intakes (tid, usual schedule) to that obtained with 2 daily intakes (bid). METHODS Twenty-one metastatic colorectal cancer patients were enrolled (16 men, 5 women ; mean age 64, extremes 42-79 ;(More)
BACKGROUND Short-chain fructooligosaccharides (scFOS) have beneficial effects in subjects with minor digestive complaints, but the potential mechanisms involved have not been elucidated. The aim of the study was to evaluate changes in rectal sensitivity related to the clinical effects of scFOS in a selected group of patients with irritable bowel syndrome(More)
