By virtue of its binding to steroid hormone receptors, bisphenol A (BPA, the unconjugated bioactive monomer) is hypothesized to be estrogenic when present in sufficient quantities in the body, raising concerns that widespread exposure to BPA may impact human health. To better understand the internal exposure of adult humans to BPA and the relationship(More)
BACKGROUND The in vivo diagnosis of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is inferred from clinical and structural imaging features. (11)C-Pittsburgh compound B (PIB) is a PET ligand that binds to beta-amyloid in extracellular plaques and vessel walls. We hypothesized that patients with a clinical diagnosis of CAA-related hemorrhage (CAAH) have increased(More)
The pharmacokinetics of nicotine, the pharmacologically active alkaloid in tobacco responsible for addiction, are well characterized in humans. We developed a physiologically based pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic model of nicotine pharmacokinetics, brain dosimetry and brain nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChRs) occupancy. A Bayesian framework was(More)
Umeclidinium (UMEC) is an inhaled long-acting muscarinic antagonist approved in the US and EU for the once-daily (QD) treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD); it is not indicated for the treatment of asthma. To fully characterize the dose-response relationship of UMEC in patients with COPD, a pooled analysis of data from two randomized,(More)
Dinutuximab (Unituxin™; ch14.18), a monoclonal antibody against disialoganglioside, improved survival as part of post-consolidation therapy for high-risk neuroblastoma. United Therapeutics Corporation (UTC) assumed ch14.18 production from the National Cancer Institute (NCI); this study evaluates pharmacokinetic comparability, safety, and tolerability of UTC(More)
Triantennary N-acetyl galactosamine (GalNAc3)-conjugated antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) have greatly improved potency due to receptor-mediated uptake into hepatocyte. The disposition and pharmacokinetics of ISIS 681257, a GalNAc3-conjugated ASO, were studied in monkeys. Following subcutaneous (SC) injection, ISIS 681257 was rapidly absorbed into the(More)
The aim of this study to evaluate the effect of mipomersen on QT intervals in a phase I dose escalation, placebo-controlled study, and a thorough QT (tQT) study in healthy subjects. In the initial phase I study, 29 healthy subjects received either single or multiple (for 4 weeks) ascending doses of mipomersen (50–400 mg) administered subcutaneously (SC) or(More)
Urinary tract infection in children is still an important problem in uronephrology. The disease tends to develop recurrently and results in chronic progressive renal disease in the future. Pipemidic acid is a bactericidal quinolone derivate, with a wide spectrum against gram positive and negative bacteria. Compared with nalidixic acid, pipemidic acid proves(More)
Nusinersen is an antisense oligonucleotide intended for the treatment of spinal muscular atrophy. The pharmacokinetics of nusinersen, following intrathecal administrations, in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma of 72 pediatric patients (3 months to 17 years) with spinal muscular atrophy across 5 clinical trials was analyzed via population-based(More)
