Different recombinant human erythropoietin products have been developed. Although they appear to have similar pharmacokinetics and function, these have not been directly compared. This randomized, double-blind, four-period crossover study compared the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of intravenous and subcutaneous epoetin alfa and epoetin beta in 18(More)
Short-circuit current (SCC) techniques were used to monitor effects of various diuretic agents on Na+ transport in toad bladder and Cl- transport in toad cornea. In bladder, various agents from different "classes" of diuretics inhibited SCC whereas in cornea only "loop diuretics," i.e., those with a primary site of action in the ascending limb of the loop(More)
Modification of a self setting bone cement with biodegradable microspheres to achieve controlled local release of antibiotics without compromising mechanical properties was investigated. Different biodegradable microsphere batches were prepared from poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) using a spray-drying technique to encapsulate gentamicin crobefate(More)
The influence of porosity on release profiles of antibiotics from calcium phosphate composites was investigated to optimize the duration of treatment. We hypothesized, that by the encapsulation of vancomycin-HCl into biodegradable microspheres prior admixing to calcium phosphate bone cement, the influence of porosity of the cement matrix on vancomycin(More)
Our aim was to study the suitability of the ex-vivo human trabecular bone bioreactor ZetOS to test the biocompatibility of calcium phosphate bone cement composites modified with spray dried, drug loaded microspheres. We hypothesized, that this bone bioreactor could be a promising alternative to in vivo assessment of biocompatibility in living human bone(More)
A randomized, investigator-blind study was conducted to compare the efficacy and skin tolerance of Cleocin T Topical 1 percent Solution and Cleocin T Topical 1 percent Lotion. Both treatments reduced acne lesion counts. More than 70 percent of the evaluable patients receiving each treatment reported that their acne improved by the end of the twelve-week(More)
