A comparative pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic investigation was carried out on the interaction between the hypnotic midazolam and 2 different macrolide-type antibiotics, clarithromycin and azithromycin. In an open randomized crossover study of 3 phases 12 healthy volunteers received either clarithromycin (250 mg twice a day for 5 days), azithromycin(More)
AIM To carry out a prospective study of cardiac arrest survivors to understand the qualitative features as well as incidence, and possible aetiology of near death experiences (NDEs) in this group of patients. METHOD All survivors of cardiac arrests during a 1 year period were interviewed within a week of their arrest, regarding memories of their(More)
The pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic interaction between azithromycin (CAS 83905-01-5), an azalide antibiotic, and midazolam (CAS 59467-70-8), a short-acting hypnotic agent, was investigated in an open, three-way cross-over study, including erythromycin (CAS 114-07-8) as a positive control. Twelve healthy male and female subjects had standard doses of(More)
Antibody responses were measured in a volunteer infected four times with Necator americanus over a 27-month period. The main source of antigen was culture fluid in which living adult N. americanus had been maintained for several days. Antibodies to worm acetylcholinesterase and IgE antibodies were detected only with this material, but antibodies were(More)
The influence of food on the pharmacokinetics of the triazole antimycotics fluconazole and itraconazole was investigated in a randomised, parallel group, single dose study in 24 healthy subjects. Each group took either a 100 mg capsule of fluconazole or a 100 mg capsule of itraconazole, pre-prandially or after a light meal or a full meal, in a three-way(More)
In 122 diabetic patients there was a signnificant inverse correlation between plasma-high-density-lipoprotein (H.D.L.)-Cholesterol concentrations and glycosylated haemoglobin concentrations. In an insulin-treated subgroup improvement in diabetic control, confirmed by a decrease in glycosylated haemoglobin concentrations, was accompanied by a significant(More)
Sperm design and function are important determinants of male reproductive success and are expected to be under strong selection. The way that spermatozoa phenotypes evolve is poorly understood, because there have been few studies of the quantitative genetics of sperm. Here we show, in the zebra finch Taeniopygia guttata, an extraordinary degree of(More)
This report includes a recalculation of the pooled data of 2 pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies of the interaction between the hypnotic midazolam and the antibiotics erythromycin, clarithromycin (macrolides), and azithromycin (an azalide). Erythromycin and clarithromycin similarly and strikingly impaired the metabolism of midazolam and enhanced its(More)
