The time course of biophasic amounts of two nonsteroid antiinflammatory drugs (naproxen and oxyphenbutazone) after an intravenous dose of both drugs in rats (5 and 20 mg/kg, respectively) and their relationships with the drug amounts in central and peripheral compartments as defined through blood level data obtained after the same intravenous dose of the(More)
The in vitro transdermal absorption of five calcium channel antagonists (nifedipine, nitrendipine, nicardipine, felodipine, and nimodipine) was studied using the skin of hairless rats as a membrane. The aim of this study was to determine the penetration parameters [permeability constant (Kp), lag time (T1, and flux (J)] as measures of the intrinsic(More)
The present study reviews and checks the rearranged master lines of the functional bihyperbolic absorption model proposed by Plá-Delfina and Moreno, by examining the correlations between absorption rate constants experimentally found in the small intestine and in the colon of the rat, and two types of partition constants for a series of ring-substituted(More)
A preliminary study attempting to assess and explain the intestinal absorption of a series of antibacterial 7-piperazinyl-6-fluoroquinolones is presented. The synthesis, n-octanol partition coefficients, intrinsic rat gut in situ absorption rate constants, and in vitro antibacterial activity data found for these homologous compounds are described. A(More)
OBJECTIVE During the past decade, it has been shown that the association between Down's syndrome and coeliac disease is relatively frequent Prevalence rates of coeliac disease in patients with Down's syndrome reported by different authors are significantly higher than those found in the general population. The main purpose of this study was to assess the(More)
Plasma fatty acid patterns were assessed by gas liquid chromatography in 73 patients with active inflammatory bowel disease and 107 healthy controls. The influence of the disease activity on fatty acid profile was also investigated. Plasma fatty acid patterns in patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease were similar. Plasma C18:3n3 and C22:6n3(More)
The physicochemical constants and some structural parameters (topological, steric, and electronic) of eight third-generation monofluorate quinolones (six uncommercialized and two used clinically [ciprofloxacin and enrofloxacin]) were determined: pKa, intrinsic solubility (S0), chromatographic capacity factor, partition coefficient (P), valency molecular(More)
Pyruvate carboxylase deficiency is a rare metabolic disorder, with three different phenotypes. We aim to report the case of a newborn presenting the severe neonatal form of this deficiency (the B or "French" phenotype, hypokinesia and rigidity being the main features) and the results of the study of classic neurotransmitters involved in movement control.(More)
Transdermal absorption of a series of antiemetics (alizapride, bromopride, clebopride, domperidone, metoclopramide, metopimazine, and scopolamine) was studied in vitro with the skin of hairless rats as the membrane. The aim of the study was to determine the permeation parameters [transdermal permeability rate constant (Kp), lag time, and flux] as a measure(More)
BACKGROUND Ubiquinone-10 is a lipid with important metabolic functions that may be decreased in phenylketonuria (PKU) because patients with PKU consume diets restricted in natural proteins. OBJECTIVE We studied serum ubiquinone-10 concentrations in PKU patients. DESIGN This was a retrospective, transversal study in which we compared serum ubiquinone-10,(More)
