The objective of the present study was to determine the pharmacokinetics and efficacies of liposomal and conventional formulations of tobramycin against Burkholderia cepacia in a model of chronic lung infection. Male Sprague-Dawley rats were inoculated intratracheally with 10(6) CFU of a very resistant strain of B. cepacia (strain BC 1368; MIC, 128 micro(More)
Two randomized, open-label clinical studies involving healthy female volunteers aged 18-45 years (study 1, N = 32; study 2, N = 40) are described, which characterize the pharmacokinetics and steady-state dosage regimen performance of 2 novel, modified-release tranexamic acid tablet formulations. The objective of these studies was to identify the optimum(More)
Mixed-effect modeling was used to compare the population pharmacokinetics of 2 formulations of cyclosporine in patients. An open-label, multicenter, conversion study in stable, 6-month post-renal allograft recipients was conducted to compare the safety and pharmacokinetics of oral Pliva Cyclosporine Soft Gelatin Capsules (USP Modified) with Neoral(More)
A new homologous 2-site assay for rat parathyroid hormone (IRMA), developed by Immutopics, Inc., has been evaluated and compared with a bone cell cAMP bioassay. Circulating PTH for adult rats assayed with this IRMA are in the range 10-15 pg/ml, and of the same order of magnitude as published values for biologically active PTH. The standard curve for the(More)
Purpose. The use of truncated areas under the curve (AUCs) could be a significant advantage for bioequivalence studies of drugs with long half-lives. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the performance of truncated AUCs as measures of relative extent of bioavailability using a large database of experimental data and Monte Carlo simulations.
