The effects of equi-efficacious doses of the cholesterol-lowering drugs simvastatin (20 mg day-1) and pravastatin (40 mg day-1) on tests of cognitive function were investigated in a double-blind, placebo-controlled, 2-period (4 weeks per period), incomplete block, crossover study of 36 patients (24 per treatment) with hypercholesterolaemia. After 4 weeks(More)
BACKGROUND Low-dose H2-receptor antagonists are available without prescription for the self-medication of dyspepsia. METHODS To investigate the relative abilities of low doses of famotidine and ranitidine to raise intragastric pH after a single post-prandial evening dose, 25 healthy volunteers completed a three-period cross-over trial of famotidine 10 mg,(More)
AIM To compare the inhibitory effects of over-the-counter doses of famotidine or ranitidine on nocturnal intragastric acidity in a placebo-controlled study. METHODS Twelve-hour intragastric acidity was measured simultaneously in 24 healthy subjects who ate a standard meal at 18.30 h and were dosed (at 19.30 h) with either famotidine 10 mg, ranitidine 75(More)
AIM To establish whether patients taking famotidine 10 mg to treat an episode of heartburn were protected from a recurrence of symptoms after a subsequent test meal. METHODS Frequent heartburn sufferers (n = 366) were randomized to receive double blind treatment with famotidine 10 mg or 2 x 250 mg chewable alginate tablets within 30 min of a spontaneous(More)
The HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors lovastatin and pravastatin have both proven to be effective and well tolerated in the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. To evaluate whether lovastatin or pravastatin might affect daytime cognitive function, a double-blind, placebo-controlled, two-period, incomplete block, crossover study was performed in 36 patients (24 per(More)
AIMS Developing genetic and pharmacogenetic panels enhances genetic testing in clinical molecular diagnostics and precision medicine. This study was designed to cross-validate the performance of Canon's multiplex high-resolution DNA melting analysis platform with the Applied Biosystems TaqMan®-based Quant Studio Real-Time PCR System and Pyrosequencing®(More)
BACKGROUND There are no published comparative studies on the effect of low-dose H2-antagonists on pentagastrin-stimulated gastric acid secretion. METHODS Twenty-four healthy subjects were dosed with either famotidine 10 mg, ranitidine 75 mg or placebo in a balanced three-period cross-over design. The subjects were studied in groups of 12, simultaneously,(More)
