Chemotherapy for malignant brain tumors has a limited efficacy largely due to restricted blood–brain barrier permeability for chemotherapeutic drugs. Intraarterial chemotherapy (IAC) has the advantage of increased uptake during the first passage of the drugs through tumor capillaries. Initial IAC trials had less than satisfactory results due to unacceptable(More)
Percutaneous absorption of dexamethasone in alcoholic solution in mice and rats was low. The permeability constant measured in mice was included between 1.05 and 1.39 × 10−5 cm/h. Beneath the area of application, a retention appeared in subcutaneous tissue and skeletal muscles which explained local pharmacological action. In other tissues (plasma, liver,(More)
Direct intra-renal perfusion of inosine was found to protect the canine kidney from 90 min of warm is chaemia. Significantly lower (P<0.01) serum creatinine levels were found 24 and 72 h post-operatively in an inosine treated group (N=12) when compared to a control group (N=5). Histological examination of the pre-treated kidneys confirmed the protective(More)
