Plasma and whole blood concentrations of proguanil, its active metabolite cycloguanil, and the inactive metabolite 4-chlorophenyl-biguanide, were measured by HPLC in 10 healthy Karen women in the last trimester of pregnancy, following a 200 mg single oral dose of proguanil. Four of these women were restudied 2 months after delivery. The pharmacokinetic(More)
BACKGROUND The quality of medicines available in some less-developed countries is inadequate in terms of content of active ingredient. Reasons for the poor quality of drugs include widespread counterfeiting of medicines in less-developed countries, excessive decomposition of active ingredient as a result of high temperature and humidity, and poor quality(More)
Procedures are described for the simultaneous determination, by high-performance liquid chromatography of adrenaline, noradrenaline, dopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine using laurylsulphate as pairing ion and for the separate simultaneous determination of vanillylmandelic acid, dihydroxyphenylacetic acid, 3-methoxy-4-hydroxyphenylethylene glycol,(More)
In a number of developing countries there is reportedly a high incidence of the availability of substandard drugs. The majority of these reports do not contain quantitative data to support these claims, nor do they describe the methodology employed for the quality assessment. Many assume counterfeiting as the reason for the poor quality and in some cases(More)
Much effort and resources have been focused on improving or evolving antimalarial prophylactic regimens in order to reduce the increasing problems of malaria infection in nonimmune travelers to malaria endemic regions. Falciparum malaria in travelers returned from Africa has been attributed to reduced efficacy of chloroquine against chloroquine-resistant(More)
A new high presure liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for the determination of progesterone in the presence of other delta 43-ketosteroids is described. Using this method it is shown that the rate of production of progesterone from pregn-5-ene-3,20-dione by rat ovarioan homogenate is initally rapid but falls to zero within 10 min. Experiments indicate that(More)
A separation of heroin, 6-monoacetylmorphine, codeine, pholcodine, dihydrocodeine and morphine using a 200 x 2 mm I.D., 3 microns silica column with dichloromethane-pentane-diethylamine-methanol mobile phase is described. Data on the determination of these compounds in a urine matrix based on this separation using a solid-phase pretreatment with Bond Elut(More)
This study investigates the case-based learning experience of 133 undergraduate veterinarian science students. Using qualitative methodologies from relational Student Learning Research , variation in the quality of the learning experience was identified, ranging from coherent , deep, quality experiences of the cases, to experiences that separated(More)
