This international, randomized, active-controlled, parallel-group, double-blind dose-finding study compared peginterferon alfa-2b (PegIntron) to interferon alfa-2b for the initial treatment of compensated chronic hepatitis C. We randomly assigned 1,219 subjects to receive either the standard three-times-weekly (TIW) interferon alfa-2b dose (3 MIU) or the(More)
PURPOSE The present study was done to evaluate the clinical characteristics of a large series of adult patients with chronic idiopathic neutropenia, and correlate the presence of antineutrophil antibodies, their class (IgG or IgM), and their ability to fix complement with clinical parameters, including other hemocytopenias, splenomegaly, and infections.

Posaconazole is an antifungal with a wide-spectrum of activity against common and emerging fungal pathogens. In this randomised, open-label, two-way crossover study, the potential for drug interactions with posaconazole via the cytochrome P450 (CYP450) enzyme pathway was evaluated. Thirteen subjects received posaconazole tablets (2 x 100 mg) once daily for(More)
Posaconazole is a triazole antifungal in development for the treatment of invasive fungal infections. The authors evaluated the pharmacokinetics and safety of posaconazole in healthy subjects and in those with mild (CL(CR) = 50-80 mL/min), moderate (CL(CR) = 20-49 mL/min), and severe chronic renal disease (CL(CR) <20 mL/min; receiving outpatient(More)
The endothelium serves many functional roles, including the modulation of vascular smooth muscle tone through the release of vasoactive agents such as nitric oxide (NO) and the eicosanoids. We proposed that NO produced by endothelial cells would increase the production of eicosanoids through enhanced expression and/or activation of prostaglandin H synthase.(More)
The present study was designed to determine whether adult swine with peripheral artery insufficiency (PAI) would exhibit vascular dysfunction in vessels distinct from the affected distal limbs, the coronary conduit arteries. Moreover, we sought to evaluate the effect of exercise training on coronary vasomotor function in PAI. Eighteen female healthy young(More)
