1 GW274150 ([2-[(1-iminoethyl) amino]ethyl]-L-homocysteine) and GW273629 (3-[[2-[(1-iminoethyl)amino]ethyl]sulphonyl]-L-alanine) are potent, time-dependent, highly selective inhibitors of human inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) vs endothelial NOS (eNOS) (>100-fold) or neuronal NOS (nNOS) (>80-fold). GW274150 and GW273629 are arginine competitive,(More)
PURPOSE The primary objective of this study was to investigate the influence of renal impairment on the pharmacokinetics of capecitabine and its metabolites in cancer patients. Capecitabine (Xeloda) is an orally administered precursor of 5'-deoxy-5-fluorouridine (5'-DFUR), which is preferentially activated to 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) in tumors. METHODS A(More)
1. The release of cytokines following administration of endotoxin and the contribution of nitric oxide (NO) to the subsequent haemodynamic profile were investigated in the conscious mouse. 2. Administration of endotoxin (E. Coli, 026:B6, 12.5 mg kg(-1), i.v.) elevated the concentration of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in the plasma within 0.5 h,(More)
BACKGROUND Capecitabine (Xeloda) is a novel, oral fluoropyrimidine carbamate rationally designed to generate 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) preferentially in tumor tissue via a three-step enzymatic cascade. PURPOSE The objective of this study was to compare the pharmacokinetics of capecitabine and its metabolites in Japanese and Caucasian cancer patients. (More)
Annexins are calcium-binding proteins of unknown function but which are implicated in important cellular processes, including anticoagulation, ion flux regulation, calcium homeostasis, and endocytosis. To gain insight into the function of annexin VI, we performed targeted disruption of its gene in mice. Matings between heterozygous mice produced offspring(More)
