Male and female beagle dogs showed rapid absorption following oral administration of single oral gavage (40 mg/kg) and single or multiple (15 days) oral capsule (10, 40, and 150 mg/kg) doses of the novel anticonvulsant drug, topiramate, with the peak plasma concentration (Cmax) occurring between 0.6 and 3.8 hr. The absolute bioavailability of an oral dose(More)
Although the mu opioid receptor is the primary target of marketed opioid analgesics, several studies suggest the advantageous effect of combinations of mu and delta opioids. The novel compound RWJ-394674 [N,N-diethyl-4-[(8-phenethyl-8-azabicyclo]3.2.1]oct-3-ylidene)-phenylmethyl]-benzamide]; bound with high affinity to the delta opioid receptor (0.2 nM) and(More)
A major directive of Pharmaceutical Research and Development (R&D) is to efficiently advance potential new chemical entities (NCEs) from the Discovery therapeutic area into Global Preclinical Development (GPCD), where a safety profile can be established. To facilitate the transition a comprehensive toxicity evaluation is required. In order to support both(More)
By a sensitive and quantitative fluorometric assay, brain and plasma time-dependent concentration profiles were generated for phosphoramide mustard (PM) and active alkylating metabolites derived from cyclophosphamide (CPA) administration to rats. Whereas PM rapidly disappeared from plasma, with a monophasic half-life of 15.1 min, equimolar administration of(More)
The lipophilic derivatives of the anticancer alkylating agent chlorambucil, chlorambucil-methyl, -isopropyl and -tertiary butyl esters, were synthesized and administered i.v. to anesthetized rats. Plasma and brain concentrations of these agents and of their active metabolites, chlorambucil and phenylacetic mustard, then were determined by high-performance(More)
1. Antagonists of the V(2) vasopressin (AVP) receptor are aquaretic agents, inhibiting water resorption without stimulating electrolyte excretion. In this set of experiments, a novel V(2) receptor antagonist, RWJ-351647, was characterized in vitro and in vivo. 2. RWJ-351647 displaced (3)H-AVP binding from cloned human V(2) and V(1A) receptors with Ki values(More)
