Investigation of drug absorption from the gastrointestinal tract of man. III. Metoprolol in the colon.
The colonic absorption of metoprolol was indirectly evaluated by measuring drug appearance in plasma following intravenous, jejunal or colonic infusion in six healthy volunteers. PlasmaExpand

Evaluation of the gastric absorption and emptying of drugs under various pH conditions using a simple intubation method: application to diclofenac.
Sodium diclofenac (50 mg) together with [14 C]-PEG as a non-absorbable marker were dissolved in 400 ml of water (A), phosphate buffer pH 7.5 (B) or a homogenized meal (C). Each of these was ingestedExpand

Investigation of drug absorption from the gastrointestinal tract of man. I. Metoprolol in the stomach, duodenum and jejunum.
Gastrointestinal (GI) absorption of the beta-adrenoceptor blocker metoprolol was investigated in five healthy subjects by means of an intubation method, employing a triple-lumen tube introduced intoExpand

Investigation of drug absorption from the gastrointestinal tract of man. II. Metoprolol in the jejunum and ileum.
Absorption of metoprolol in jejunum and ileum was investigated in eight healthy subjects using an intestinal perfusion technique below an occlusive balloon. An isotonic saline solution, with orExpand

Investigation of drug absorption from the gastrointestinal tract of man. V. Effect of the beta-adrenoceptor antagonist, metoprolol, on postprandial gastric function.
The role of the adrenergic system in normal gastric function was assessed in five healthy volunteers by measuring gastric secretion and emptying after a mixed meal containing a non-absorbable marker,Expand

Jejunal and ileal absorption of oxprenolol in man: influence of nutrients and digestive secretions on jejunal absorption and systemic availability.
1 Study I evaluated the absorption of oxprenolol in the ileum, compared to jejunum, in healthy volunteers by an intestinal perfusion technique. Around 80 mg of drug were delivered as a salineExpand
