This paper presents an overview of multi-agent system models of land-use/cover change (MAS/LUCC models). This special class of LUCC models combines a cellular landscape model with agent-based representations of decision-making, integrating the two components through specification of interdependencies and feedbacks between agents and their environment. The(More)
To investigate the pharmacokinetics and disposition of [14C]pomalidomide following a single oral dose to healthy male subjects. Eight subjects were administered a single 2 mg oral suspension of [14C]pomalidomide. Blood (plasma), urine and feces were collected. Mass balance of radioactivity and the pharmacokinetics of radioactivity, pomalidomide and(More)
Chronic benzene toxicity has been demonstrated to result in either aplastic anemia or acute myelogenous leukemia, a form of granulocytic leukemia, in exposed people (Snyder and Kalf, Crit. Rev. Toxicol. 24, 177-209, 1994). Aplastic anemia has been demonstrated in animal models following benzene exposure but, heretofore, it has not been possible to replicate(More)
Pomalidomide offers an alternative for patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma who have exhausted treatment options with lenalidomide and bortezomib. Little is known about pomalidomide's potential for drug-drug interactions (DDIs); as pomalidomide clearance includes hydrolysis and cytochrome P450 (CYP450)-mediated hydroxylation, possible DDIs via(More)
Apremilast is a novel, orally available small molecule that specifically inhibits PDE4 and thus modulates multiple pro- and anti-inflammatory mediators, and is currently under clinical development for the treatment of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. The pharmacokinetics and disposition of [(14)C]apremilast was investigated following a single oral dose(More)
Previous studies with perzinfotel (1), a potent, selective, competitive NMDA receptor antagonist, showed it to be efficacious in inflammatory and neuropathic pain models. To increase the low oral bioavailability of 1 (3-5%), prodrug derivatives (3a-h) were synthesized and evaluated. The oxymethylene-spaced diphenyl analogue 3a demonstrated good stability at(More)
