1. Carbon-14 labelled 3-hydroxyphenyltrimethylammonium (3-OH PTMA), an active metabolite of neostigmine, has been given to rats by intramuscular injection and its excretion, distribution and metabolism have been studied.2. A method is described for the separation and estimation of free and conjugated 3-OH PTMA in urine and liver.3. In the first hour, about(More)
1. Pyridostigmine labelled with carbon-14 in the methyl group of the quaternary nitrogen has been used to investigate the excretion and metabolism of the drug after administration of single doses (500 mug) to the rat by stomach tube.2. Pyridostigmine is slowly excreted in the urine; the maximum excretion occurs between 1-3 hr after administration. In 24 hr(More)
BACKGROUND Tuberculosis (TB) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Toll-like-receptors (TLRs) are important for the recognition of the causative agent Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Negative regulation of TLRs is necessary to control deleterious inflammatory damage, but could provide a means of immune evasion by M. tuberculosis as well.(More)
Tuberculosis (TB) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Granzymes (gzms) are proteases mainly found in cytotoxic lymphocytes, but also extracellularly. While the role of gzms in target cell death has been widely characterized, considerable evidence points towards broader roles related to infectious and inflammatory responses. To(More)
