Tre review presents a glossary of the iridoid glycosides, secoiridoids, bis-iridoids, and non-glycosidic iridoids. The following information is present for each compound, when available: structural formula, molecular formula, molecular weight, mp and [alpha]D values, uv, ir, 1H-nmr, 13C-nmr, and ms data, as well as mp and [alpha]D values for the(More)
Bioassay-directed fractionation of Glycyrrhiza glabra L. var. typica resulted in the isolation and characterization of glabridin (I), glabrol (2), glabrene (3), 3-hydroxyglabrol (4), 4'-O-methylglabridin (5), 3'-methoxyglabridin (6), formononetin (7), phaseollinisoflavan (8), hispaglabridin A (9), hispaglabridin B (13), salicylic acid and O-acetyl salicylic(More)
Further study of mother-liquors from ethanolic extracts of Thalictrum rugosum resulted in the identification or partial characterization of 10 alkaloids, bringing the total to 17 characterized in our work on this plant. Five of the new alkaloids were active in vitro against microorganisms. Structures, based upon spectroscopic properties and chemical(More)
Quaternary alkaloid extracts of Ptelea trifoliata showed potentially interesting antimicrobial activity. Chromatographic examination showed the presence of six components. Of these, choline and O-4-methyl ptelefolinium were known compounds. Rational structures are proposed for the new alkaloids, O-4-methylhydroxyluninium, neohydroxylunine and(More)
This prospective and randomized study compared the consequences of two irrigating fluids, distilled water and glycine for transurethral prostatectomy. Forty-nine consecutive unselected patients undergoing transurethral resection of the prostate with spinal anaesthesia were investigated. The irrigating fluid was either distilled water (group A, 24 patients)(More)
The antimicrobial activity seen in extracts of Hunnemmania fumariaefolia S. resides in the alkaloids. The activity seen in the non-polar fractions had been shown by chromatography, physicochemical measurements, and comparisons with authentic samples to be due to apparently artifactual formation of the pseudomethanolates and pseudoethanolates of the(More)
The threshold concentrations responsible for circulatory collapse were experimentally investigated by intravenously infusing the drug at high rates (0.2 and 0.3 mg kg-1 min-1 over 20 min, and 0.4 mg kg-1 over 10 min) to 11 anaesthetized and ventilated dogs. Bupivacaine plasma concentrations at the time of haemodynamic measurements were, respectively, 4303(More)
