A novel, highly cardioselective ultra short-acting beta-blocker, ONO-1101, has been developed for application in the emergency treatment of tachycardia and better control of heart rate in surgery. This agent is approximately nine times more potent in beta-blocking activity in vivo and eight times more cardioselective in vitro than esmolol. This(More)

Antimicrobial activities of oral beta-lactam antimicrobial agents against clinically isolated 131 strains of Haemophilus influenzae were studied. The peak of MICs of ampicillin (ABPC) was 0.20 microgram/ml. Those of cefaclor (CCL), cefotiam (CTM), cefteram (CFTM), cefpodoxime (CPDX), cefdinir (CFDN), cefditoren (CDTR), cefcapene (CFPN), and faropenem (FRPM)(More)
