The effects of nitrendipine (10 mg, during acute clearance experiments) given both acutely and after 2 weeks of administration were examined in normal and hypertensive subjects. At the initiation of therapy, nitrendipine caused an increase in glomerular filtration rate and effective renal plasma flow in the hypertensive, but not in the normal, group.(More)
Eighty-one consecutive cases of uncomplicated cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) were retrospectively graded for severity of chest roentgenogram (CXR) changes and grouped according to primary acid-base abnormalities, either single or mixed. Mean age was 72, 50 male, 31 female. Twenty-three percent had no acid-base disturbances (ABD). Isolated respiratory(More)
A post hoc analysis was performed using combined data from two Phase I tolerability/immunogenicity studies of monovalent human papillomavirus type 11 (HPV11) or HPV16 L1 virus-like particle (VLP) vaccines. The goal was to determine if the HPV16 L1 VLP vaccine protected against HPV16 infection. Vaccine or placebo was given at 0, 2 and 6 months. HPV16(More)
Acute clearance studies were performed in normal subjects to determine the site and mechanism of action of torasemide (isopropyl-1-methyl-3 phenylamino-4 pyridil-3 sulphonyl-3-urea), a new diuretic agent, in the human kidney. The drug caused no change in glomerular filtration rate or effective renal plasma flow. Sodium excretion rose to 16% of filtered(More)
2,5-Dimethyl-2'-hydroxy-9 alpha-(3-methylbutyl)-6,7-benzomorphan, the 9 beta-analogue, and 9 alpha-N-substituted (N-ethyl, propyl, butyl, pentyl, hexyl, phenylethyl, allyl, and cyclopropylmethyl) compounds were synthesized and evaluated biochemically and pharmacologically. The 9 beta N-methyl compound was found to be as potent as morphine in the mouse hot(More)
The pharmacological effect of the N-(beta-cyanoethyl) moiety is dependent on the opioid on which it is substituted. It caused a large increase in antinociceptive potency, in (--)-3-hydroxymorphinan and (--)-normetazocine, as compared with the N-methyl opioid. These cyanoethyl compounds do not substitute for morphine in morphine-dependent monkeys. This(More)
