The pharmacokinetic parameters of piperacillin sodium were studied in eight volunteer subjects with chronic renal failure. Subjects were given a single 30-min intravenous infusion of 70 mg/kg (lean body weight) on their off-dialysis day. Blood was drawn from the contralateral arm at 15 and 30 min and 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 h from the start of the infusion.(More)
Digitalization by direct intramuscular injection of the fetus successfully controlled supraventricular tachycardia at 24 weeks' gestation after more traditional intensive trials of transplacental therapy with digoxin, verapamil, and procainamide, either separately or in combination, had failed. The fetal pharmacokinetics were calculated from fetal blood(More)
Possible antibiotic inactivation was studied in 12 subjects with end-stage renal disease who were undergoing thrice-weekly hemodialysis. The study was a randomized three-way crossover. Subjects received (i) gentamicin as a single intravenous dose of 2 mg/kg, (ii) 4 g of piperacillin intravenously every 12 h for four doses or 2 g of carbenicillin(More)
The discovery of the effectiveness of oral antidotes such as N-acetylcysteine (NAC) for acetaminophen poisonings has raised questions about the appropriateness of concomitant administration with activated charcoal. A number of studies have attempted to clarify this question without complete success. This study was designed to evaluate the difference in(More)
The concentrations of piperacillin in serum, bile, gallbladder wall, abdominal skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue were measured simultaneously at various times after the intravenous administration of a single 5-g dose to each of 14 patients undergoing biliary tract surgery. Piperacillin concentrated in the bile with peak levels exceeding 4,000(More)
In an accompanying abstract, we offer evidence that maternally administered digoxin does not readily cross the placenta of fetuses with cardiac disease. We have now administered digoxin and digitoxin to a fetus i.m. with supraventricular tachycardia in the late second trimester after maternally administered digoxin, verapamil, and procainamide failed. Fetal(More)
