Sixty-six hospitalized depressed patients were treated for 4 weeks with imipramine (Tofranil®) 225 mg/day. Blood samples were drawn twice weekly 15 h after the last drug intake, and IP and DMI concentrations in plasma were assayed by quantitative in situ thin-layer chromatography. Clinical rating was carried out once weekly by Hamilton's Rating Scale (HRS),(More)
In order to evaluate the clinical requirement for gastrin measurements, we examined all gastrin measurements requested over 1.5 years in a homogeneous population of 5.1 million inhabitants. Gastrin was quantitated with a radioimmunoassay that measured bioactive gastrins with equimolar potency. We received 1392 serum samples from 931 patients. In 394 samples(More)
The National Health Insurance started to refund expenditure on selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in 1994. Questions have been raised if a significant portion of benzodiazepine users would transfer to these new drugs when they were described in the literature as also being used for light anxiety, but not carrying the addiction risk associated with(More)
The pharmacokinetics of 5-aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) from sulphasalazine (SASP) and the slow-release 5-ASA preparation Pentasa was investigated in a cross-over study in 9 otherwise healthy patients with an ileo-rectal anastomosis. The 24-hour recoveries of the drugs were 90.5% and 84.7%, respectively. The median release of 5-ASA from SASP was 50% and from(More)
Follow-up studies of 22 patients treated surgically for unilateral bronchiectasis showed that all patients were improved postoperatively following an average observation time of 9 years, 50% being completely free of respiratory symptoms. In all patients the number of days of recurrent illness had declined significantly after surgery. As mortality and(More)
Steady-state plasma level kinetics were studied in 76 patients given imipramine (IP) 150 to 225 mg/day for 2–5 weeks. IP was given in three divided doses at 8.00 a.m., 1.00 p.m. and 5.00 p.m. Plasma concentrations of IP and its active metabolite desipramine (DMI) were determined by quantitative in situ thin-layer chromatography. The plasma levels of IP and(More)
