Utilizing an automated, Dashiell-type hexagonal maze, it was demonstrated that RHA rats: 1) were more active, 2) reversed direction more often, 3) entered radial (blind) alleys less often, and 4) displayed shorter latencies than did RLA rats. Direction reversals (U-turns) tended to increase from day to day with the RHA rats, whereas the opposite was true(More)
Transport across the BBB is a determinant of the rate and extent of drug distribution in the brain. Heroin exerts its effects through its principal metabolites 6-monoacetyl-morphine (6-MAM) and morphine. Morphine is a known substrate of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) at the blood-brain-barrier (BBB) however, little is known about the interaction of heroin and 6-MAM(More)
PURPOSE To study the stability of levamisole oral solutions (25 mg/mL) prepared from powder and tablets stored at 4 +/- 3 degrees C and 23 +/- 2 degrees C in amber glass prescription bottles. METHODS Levamisole 25 mg/mL solutions were prepared from commercially available 50-mg tablets or from pure powder in sterile water. Levamisole concentrations were(More)
Separate groups of two different rat breeding lines, Roman High Avoidance (RHA/Verh.) and Roman Low Avoidance (RLA/Verh.), treated with either saline, nicotine (0.2 mg/kg), or amphetamine (0.4 mg/kg) were compared for exploratory efficiency and for exploratory locomotion by using two different mazes on alternate testing days. The RHA/Verh. rats generally(More)
A stability-indicating assay by reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method was developed for the determination of pentobarbital sodium in oral formulations: a drug used for infant sedation in computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The chromatographic separation was achieved on a reversed-phase C18(More)
BACKGROUND The rate of entry of cocaine into the brain is a critical factor that influences neuronal plasticity and the development of cocaine addiction. Until now, passive diffusion has been considered the unique mechanism known by which cocaine crosses the blood-brain barrier. METHODS We reassessed mechanisms of transport of cocaine at the blood-brain(More)
A stability-indicating reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) method was developed for the determination of betaxolol hydrochloride, a drug used in the treatment of hypertension and glaucoma. The desired chromatographic separation was achieved on a Nucleosil C18, 4 μm (150 × 4.6 mm) column, using isocratic elution at a 220 nm(More)
A stability-indicating method was validated for the determination in pharmaceutical forms of idebenone a coenzyme Q10-like compound. The assay was achieved by liquid chromatography analysis using a reversed-phase C18 column and a detector set at 480 nm. The optimized mobile phase consisted of isocratic flow rate at 1.0 mL/min for 3 min with methanol. The(More)
