A recent report suggested that some folic acid preparations available in the United States failed to meet the specifications for dissolution specified by the US Pharmacopoeia (USP), of 70 per cent drug release in the first hour of testing. The Teratology Society recommends that women of childbearing age should take a daily supplement of 400 microg folic(More)
This study used guinea-pigs as a mammalian model to investigate the effects of bromhexine hydrochloride and S-carboxymethyl-L-cysteine on the integrity of the cervical mucus plug. It was shown that under normal circumstances the uterus is sterile, but following drug administration microorganisms began to appear in the uterus with no significant effect on(More)
Direct delivery of progestogens to the uterus may be of use in the treatment of dysfunctional uterine bleeding and the sequelae of the menopause as it has the potential to overcome the problems of systemic administration. This study characterised the release of norethisterone and levonorgestrel into an aqueous medium from hollow nylon fibres with dimensions(More)
Using guinea-pigs as a mammalian model, the effects of bromhexine hydrochloride, ethinyloestradiol, norethisterone acetate and prednisolone acetate on uterine microbial status were determined. Those drugs known to decrease mucus viscoelasticity predisposed to the entry of vaginal bacteria into the uterus, probably due to reduction of the cervical mucus(More)
The effects of transcervical, intrauterine monofilaments on guinea pig uterine microflora were determined. The results indicated that bacteria were transferred to the uterus during the insertion process, although in sham control animals these bacteria were eradicated within 10 days. In the presence of an intrauterine substrate the bacteria within the uterus(More)
The effects of systemic norethisterone acetate and oxytetracycline hydrochloride on the levels of vaginal microorganisms found in the uterus after the insertion of transcervical, intra-uterine monofilaments in the guinea-pig were determined. The results indicated that bacteria were transferred to the uterus from the vagina during the insertion process and,(More)
