Three-dimensional QSAR models with different charge calculation methods (MOPAC-AM1-ESP, MOPAC-AM1-Coulson and Gasteiger-Hückel) were developed for predicting all three enzyme kinetic parameters Km, Vmax and Vmax/Km for catecholic substrates of human soluble catechol O-methyltransferase (S-COMT). The empirical parameters of 45 substrates were correlated to(More)
Three-dimensional QSAR models were developed for predicting kinetic Michaelis constant (K(m)) values for phenolic substrates of human catecholamine sulfating sulfotransferase (SULT1A3). The K(m) values were correlated to the steric and electronic molecular fields of the substrates utilizing Comparative Molecular Field Analysis (CoMFA). The evaluated SULT1A3(More)
Acoustic rhinometry is a new method to measure the patency of the nasal airway. In this study the clinical measuring conditions were systematically evaluated. The test-retest validity was analysed by repeated measurements in ordinary, not specially trained patients and was found to be at the level of approximately 15%. The need for acclimatization before(More)
Four healthy volunteers took part in this study in four sessions at one week intervals minimum. Three intravenous dose levels of flunitrazepam as well as placebo (saline) were investigated. The sessions were randomized and the study was double blind. The results show that a significant correlation exists between the serum concentrations of flunitrazepam and(More)
The striatal homovanillic acid (HVA) and cerebral 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA) concentrations were estimated in male mice withdrawn from 3- to 5-day morphine treatment (total dose: 1,100-2,350 mg/kg). All mice were given probenecid (200 mg/kg, 2 hours). The HVA concentration was decreased (by 26%) in mice withdrawn from(More)
