The pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution and metabolism of CGP 69846A, a 20-mer phosphorothioate oligodeoxynucleotide targeted against the 3'-untranslated region of human c-raf-1 kinase mRNA, were investigated in vivo in rats after intravenous and subcutaneous administration. Intravenous disposition studies with [3H]CGP 69846A were supported with analysis(More)
To establish a skeletal muscle profile for elite sprinters, we obtained muscle biopsy samples from the vastus lateralis, gastrocnemius and soleus of African cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus). Muscle ultrastructure was characterized by the fiber type composition and mitochondrial volume density of each sample. Maximum enzyme activity, myoglobin content and mixed(More)
Two brothers with familial isolated growth hormone deficiency type IA homozygous for the same 6.7 kb deletion on chromosome 17 including the growth hormone gene were intermittently treated with various forms of hGH for more than 7 years. While the elder brother (Patient 1) showed a good growth response to pituitary hGH, the younger one (Patient 2) developed(More)
Female green iguanas, Iguana iguana, were caught in Belize, Central America (17 degrees N), in December, at the onset of seasonal gonadal activity. The animals were immediately transferred to San Diego (32 degrees N). Ovarian follicular development continued, with peak plasma hormone levels measured in January and February; 200 pg/ml for progesterone (P)(More)
Purpose. Phosphorothioate antisense oligodeoxynucleotides are promising therapeutic candidates. When given systemically in clinical trials they are administered via slow intravenous infusion to avoid their putative plasma concentration-dependent haemodynamic side-effects. In this study, we have evaluated alternative parenteral and non-parenteral(More)
Purpose. To evaluate the pulmonary distribution of CGP69846A (ISIS 5132), a phosphorothioate oligonucleotide, following intra-tracheal (i.t.) instillation into Brown-Norway rats. Methods. The pharmacokinetic profile of [3H]-CGP69846A was investigated following i.t. instillation into both naïve and inflamed airways of Brown-Norway rats. The cellular(More)
