AIMS To measure the milk to plasma ratio (M/P) of quinapril and its active metabolite quinaprilat in lactating mothers and to assess likely infant exposure. METHODS A single dose of quinapril 20 mg was administered to six healthy mothers who had been breastfeeding their infants for at least 2 weeks. Blood was sampled for the measurement of quinapril and(More)

The pharmacokinetics of oral gabapentin (400 mg) was studied in normal subjects and in subjects with various degrees of renal function. Sixty subjects participated in this three-center study. None of the subjects were receiving hemodialysis. Plasma and urine samples were collected for up to 264 hours after dosing, and concentrations of gabapentin were(More)
A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, three-way crossover design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of single oral 100 mg doses of CI-988, a cholecystokinin B (CCKB) antagonist, in attenuating panic symptoms induced by intravenous injection of cholecystokinin-tetrapeptide (CCK-4). Thirty healthy men received the following treatments on three(More)
Cyclophosphamide pharmacokinetics have been studied in 16 female patients with advanced breast cancer. The group included 7 patients who were greater than 20%, less than or equal to 30% over ideal body weight and 5 patients who were greater than 30% over ideal body weight. Cyclophosphamide plasma elimination half-lives ranged between 152 and 984 min (mean(More)
Fifteen patients receiving oral melphalan (4.2-5.3 mg/m2) for a variety of neoplastic disorders were studied. Ten patients received the drug on separate occasions, with and without a standardized breakfast. Eight of these patients also received an IV bolus dose (5 mg/m2) to determine bioavailability. Serial melphalan plasma samples were taken over 5 h after(More)
The disposition of unchanged cisplatin was compared after two- and 24-hour intravenous (IV) infusion to eight patients with germ cell cancer (dose, 100 mg/m2), 14 patients with head and neck cancer (dose, seven patients 50 mg/m2; seven patients, 100 mg/m2). Patients were randomized to receive either a two- or 24-hour infusion in the first course of(More)
Ultrafilterable platinum (UP) disposition was studied in 22 cancer patients receiving their first course of cisplatin (50 to 140 mg/m2) by two-hour infusion. UP plasma and urinary platinum levels were quantitated using a high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) assay, which was selective for cisplatin and active platinum metabolites. Creatinine(More)
Ultrafilterable plasma and urinary levels of platinum were quantitated for 24 hours after the first- and fourth-course infusion of cisplatin (CDDP) to seven patients. Four patients received 80 mg/m2 and three patients received 100 mg/m2 CDDP as a 2-hour infusion. The area under the curve (AUC) of ultrafilterable platinum, average renal clearance (CIR) of(More)
CI-979 ((E)-1,2,5,6-tetrahydro-1-methyl-3-pyridinecarboxaldehyde, O-methyloxime monohydrochloride), a novel muscarinic agonist, is being investigated as a potential treatment for Alzheimer's disease (AD). The objective of the present study was to determine the safety and tolerance of multiple, rising, oral doses of CI-979 in patients with AD. Ten male(More)
