Galantamine is a rather weak acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor, currently approved for the symptomatic treatment of Alzheimer's disease, with possible additional allosteric potentiating effects at the nicotinic ACh receptor (nAChR). Earlier data from in vitro biochemical tests suggest that donepezil is 40- to 500-fold more potent than galantamine in(More)
Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC) is an oxygenated solvent that is metabolized to methylisobutyl ketone (MIBK) and then to 4-hydroxymethyl-4-methyl-2-pentanone (HMP). Plasma levels of MIBC, MIBK and HMP were determined up to 12 h after a single oral 5 mmol/kg dose of MIBC or MIBK to male rats. The major material in the plasma in both cases was HMP, with(More)
The ovariectomized old cynomolgus monkey is a recognized model of human osteoporosis, and the same species can be used for the assessment of the efficacy and potential toxicity of agents intended to prevent or treat osteoporosis. Several assays have been developed that can measure the same biochemical markers of bone turnover as are used in human patients(More)
