The influence of the administration schedule (intravenous (i.v.) bolus versus i.v. infusion) on the pharmacokinetics of methotrexate (MTX) in plasma and extracellular fluid (ECF) of a brain C6-glioma was investigated in rats. MTX concentrations were determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-ultraviolet radiation (UV). MTX (50 mg/kg) was(More)
PURPOSE Establishment of the pharmacokinetic profile of methotrexate (MTX) in the extracellular fluid (ECF) of a brain C6-glioma in rats. METHODS Serial collection of plasma samples and ECF dialysates after i.v. infusion of MTX (50 or 100 mg/kg) for 4 h. HPLC assay. RESULTS Histological studies revealed the presence of inflammation, edema, necrosis, and(More)
The two diastereoisomers dexamethasone (DXM) and betamethasone (BTM) were infused at two different doses (2, 10 mg.kg-1) in anesthetized rabbits. Samples of plasma and cerebrospinal fluid were collected over a 180-min period. Steroid concentrations were measured by high performance liquid chromatography. The terminal half life (85.7 +/- 20.8 min and 102.2(More)
The dose of gallium chloride required to inhibit tumor growth after oral and chronic administration depends on the stage of the cancer disease and of the type of metastases. A dose regimen of 800 mg/24 h of gallium chloride will provide serum gallium concentrations greater than or equal to 600 micrograms/l in lung cancer patients with a small and limited(More)
PURPOSE To determine of the pharmacokinetic profile of methotrexate (MTX) in blood and extracellular fluid (ECF) of VX2 tumor and muscle in rabbits. METHODS Microdialysis probes were inserted into VX2 tumor and in muscle tissue. Following intravenous administration of MTX (30 mg/kg), serial collection of arterial blood samples and dialysates of muscle and(More)
Pharmacokinetic parameters were determined in 18 lung cancer patients after a single administration of 800 mg/24 h of GaCl3: Cmax = 123 +/- 61 mu/l; Tmax = 5.2 +/- 5.5 h; AUCO-96h = 4690 +/- 3358 micrograms.l-1.h; AUCO - infinity = 6394 +/- 5352 micrograms.l-1.h; T 1/2 beta = 43 +/- 19 h. Serum Ga concentrations at the steady-state (Css) were then(More)
Increases in urinary, plasma and tumour adrenaline have been previously observed in MEN II patients with phaeochromocytoma. However, the sensitivity of adrenaline for early detection of adrenal medullary disease has not been accurately evaluated. Twenty-five patients with medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) histologically confirmed but without clinical or(More)
The tissue penetration and distribution of antibiotics is of great importance, since most of the infections occur in the tissue. At the infection site, the free, unbound fraction of the antibiotic is responsible for the antiinfective effect. These free extracellular concentrations can be measured by microdialysis. It was the aim of the study to correlate(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the pharmacokinetics of gacyclidine, a non-competitive NMDA antagonist, in plasma and spinal cord extracellular fluid (ECF) after IV administration of single enantiomers in rats. After implantation of microdialysis probes in spinal cord, concentrations in plasma and ECF dialysates were determined by a chiral GC/MS(More)
