REV 5901 [alpha-pentyl-3-(2-quinolinylmethoxy)-benzene-methanol] has been shown to be a competitive antagonist of peptidoleukotrienes. In vitro it has a Ki value of 0.7 microM vs. [3H]leukotriene D4 ([3H]-LTD4) binding to membranes from guinea pig lung. Against LTC4-, LTD4- and LTE4-induced contractions of guinea pig parenchymal strips, it has Kb values of(More)
Celiprolol has been previously shown in vivo to be an effective beta-adrenergic antagonist with cardio-selectivity and weak intrinsic sympathomimetic activity but no membrane stabilizing or "quinidine-like" effects. With in vitro systems reported here, the following was observed. Against the stimulation of adenylate cyclase from dog ventricular muscle by(More)
Evidence is presented that modulation of the maximum velocity of a particulate low K-m cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate (cyclic AMP) phosphodiesterase by thyroid hormones is one mechanism for the regulation of the responsiveness of rat epididymal adipocytes to lipolytic agents such as epinephrine and glucagon. Fat cells of propylthiouracil-induced(More)
5% Amlexanox oral paste (Aphthasol) was studied in four vehicle-controlled, randomized, double-blind, parallel group, multicenter, clinical studies involving 1335 subjects who had 1 to 3 aphthous ulcers less than 48 hours old at enrollment. Subjects applied study pastes directly to ulcers four times a day until ulcers healed or for the duration of the(More)
In some animal models, celiprolol, a cardioselective beta-adrenoceptor antagonist, has been reported to relax bronchial smooth muscle, an activity unique for this class of compound. Mechanistic studies with isolated cat tracheal rings and peripheral lung strips from guinea-pigs indicated that this relaxing activity could not be explained by competitive(More)
The safety of 5% Amlexanox paste was demonstrated in the following clinical studies: vehicle-controlled safety and efficacy studies; dermal irritation and sensitization studies; single and multiple dose pharmacokinetic studies; and a 28-day in use safety study. Minimal adverse experiences were observed with the 991 subjects that were exposed to 5% Amlexanox(More)
A series of new substituted arylmethyl phenyl ethers has been prepared. These compounds were tested as inhibitors of 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) in rat neutrophils, in vitro antagonists of leukotriene-induced contraction of guinea pig (GP) lung parenchymal strips, and inhibitors of slow reacting substance of anaphylaxis (SRS-A) mediated bronchospasm in the GP in(More)
RG 12525 was determined to be a specific, competitive and orally effective antagonist of the peptidoleukotrienes, LTC4, LTD4 and LTE4, in several assays utilizing guinea pigs. In vitro, RG 12525 competitively inhibited 3H-LTD4 binding to lung membranes (Ki = 3.0 +/- 0.3 nM) and competitively antagonized the spasmogenic activity of LTC4, LTD4 and LTE4 on(More)
