Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic pain condition characterized by pain during joint use as well as pain at rest (i.e., ongoing pain). Although injection of monosodium iodoacetate (MIA) into the intra-articular space of the rodent knee is a well established model of OA pain that is characterized by changes in weight bearing and hypersensitivity to tactile and(More)
Aims: A simple and highly sensitive LC-MS method was used to determine the concentrations of losartan, its major active metabolite E3174 and hydrochlorothiazide in human plasma and pharmacokinetic characteristics and metabolism phenotype observation after administration of losartan tablets and losartan/hydrochlorothiazide combination tablets. Methods: An(More)
Substance P (SP), tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and serotonin inputs onto laryngeal motoneurons (LMNs) are known to exist, but the distribution of their terminals in the caudal nucleus ambiguus (NA), remains unclear. Using immunofluorescence and confocal microscopy, we assessed simultaneously the distribution of SP, TH, serotonin and synaptophysin(More)
A remarkably large species difference in cinchonidine oxidation activity catalyzed by aldehyde oxidase (AO) has been known, in particular between rabbit and monkey. As the first step in clarifying the phenomenon from the view point of structures of the active site, we attempted to construct an expression system of rabbit AO cDNA. The nucleotide sequences of(More)
A single dose of 3H-norcantharidin solution was intragastrically given, blood, tissues, urine and feces were collected as scheduled, and radioactivity in these samples was determined by tritium tracing method to investigate the pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution and excretion of norcantharidin in Kunming mice. The pharmacokinetic characteristics of(More)
The aim of this study is to establish an HPLC method for simultaneous determinations of mifepristone and its metabolites, mono-demethylated mifepristone, di-demethylated mifepristone and C-hydroxylated mifepristone in plasma and to evaluate the pharmacokinetic characteristics of mifepristone tablet. Twenty healthy female Chinese subjects were recruited and(More)
The paper is aimed to investigate the pharmacokinetic (PK) and the pharmacodynamic (PD) properties of carvedilol using indirect response and effect-compartment link models, and compare the fitness of PK-PD models. Twenty male healthy Chinese volunteers received a single oral dose of 20 mg of carvedilol. The plasma concentrations of carvedilol were(More)
A sensitive and selective liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS/MS) method was developed and validated for the determination of betamethasone in human plasma. The analyte was isocratically eluted on a Venusil XBP C8 column (200 mm x 3.9 mm ID, 5 microm) with methanol-water mol x L(-1) ammonium formate) (80:20) at a flow rate of 0.4 mL x(More)
A sensitive and selective liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometric (LC-MS) method was developed and validated for the determination of Tramadol in human plasma and urine. The analyte was separated on a Diamonsil C18 column with ammonium acetate( 5mmol·L−1)-methanol(50:50, v:v) adjusted PH by caustic soda at a flow rate of 0.8ml min−1, and analyzed by(More)
This study was designed to investigate the effect and mechanism of allicin on hyperhomocysteinemia-induced experimental vascular endothelial dysfunction in rats. Fifty male Wistar rats were randomly divided into five groups: the normal control rats (NC), the high-methionine-diet rats (Met), the high-methionine-diet rats treated with folic acid, vitaminB₆(More)
