BACKGROUND The use of systemic prostanoids in severe pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is often limited by patient/physician dissatisfaction with the delivery methods. Complications associated with external pump-delivered continuous therapy include IV catheter-related bloodstream infections and subcutaneous infusion site pain. We therefore investigated(More)
Serologic responses to a 14-valent pneumococcal vaccine were measured in 20 children with steroid-responsive idiopathic nephrotic syndrome. All patients were free of proteinuria and receiving either daily (five patients) or alternate-day (15 patients) prednisone in a dosage of 1-2 mg/kg/day at the time of vaccination. Patients on alternate-day steroids(More)
BACKGROUND Catheter failure, either due to dislodgment, occlusion or infection is the leading complication of chronic intravenous drug therapy. Better drug delivery techniques are required to advance life saving therapies that require this delivery method. This study evaluated the chronic performance of a fully implantable drug delivery system that(More)
BACKGROUND Prostacyclins improve symptoms and survival in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). In response to risks associated with external delivery systems, an implantable IV infusion system was developed. A multicenter, prospective, single-arm, clinical trial (DelIVery for PAH) was conducted to evaluate this system for treprostinil in PAH. This(More)
In a metabolism study, three male and three female pediatric dogs and three male and three female adult beagle dogs received a single oral dose of 60 mg/kg [14C]felbamate. Urine and feces were collected up to 72 hr. Excreta samples were extracted with ethyl acetate and 14C metabolite profiles were generated by HPLC analysis of the extracts. The total 14C(More)
