Endoscopic lesions of the gastric mucosa were evaluated in 12 healthy volunteers after administration of single doses of ketoprofen (25 mg), ibuprofen (200 mg) and aspirin (500 mg) in a randomized, double-blind, crossover study. The grades of the lesions (according to Lanza's scale) were lower after the administration of ketoprofen than aspirin and were(More)
Equilibrium dialysis was used to study in vitro the enantioselective binding of R, S, and racemic ketoprofen at physiological pH and temperature in human serum albumin (HSA) (1, 20, and 40 g/liter) and in plasma. The binding of enantiomers in a racemic mixture was studied to see the effect of each isomer on the other's interaction with the protein. The free(More)
Many aryl alkanoic acids are cleared as ester glucuronide excreted in urine. While conjugation with glucuronic acid is generally considered as a detoxication process, this conjugate has been shown over the past decade to be a potentially reactive metabolite, undergoing hydrolysis, intramolecular rearrangement, and irreversible binding to proteins. This(More)
In elderly patients, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are often used concomitantly with antihypertensive agents. It is therefore important to assess the potential for interactions between NSAIDs and these agents. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 40 elderly hypertensive patients treated with acebutolol or atenolol, together with(More)
Many carboxylic acid-containing drugs undergo conjugation with D-glucuronic acid in humans, leading to the formation of acyl glucuronides, which are excreted into urine. However, these metabolites can be hydrolyzed back to the parent aglycon; this reaction can be accelerated by human serum albumin (HSA). Although this phenomenon of interaction between the(More)
Since acyl glucuronides are known to undergo deconjugation, especially in the presence of human serum albumin (HSA), only a few reports have described their reversible binding to plasma proteins. The aim of this study was to investigate the reversible binding of R and S ketoprofen glucuronides to HSA by a rapid technique, such as ultraviolet circular(More)
High doses of retinol produce hyperostotic lesions in animals and humans. In this study we measured in fasting subjects and 5 hours after administering 50,000 IU of retinol, levels in the serum of retinol, retinol-binding protein (RBP) and prealbumin in 35 hyperostotic subjects (HVA) and 22 control subjects. Retinol levels were equally high after fasting(More)
