Using the tissue culture technique we have recently demonstrated that long-term exposure of human adipose tissue to human growth hormone (GH) in vitro leads to an impairment in glucose incorporation into triglycerides. This effect was further studied in the present investigation. Biopsies of human adipose tissue which had been cultured for one week with or(More)
The pharmacokinetics of 3H-metoprolol, a new selective β 1-receptor antagonist, have been studied in healthy volunteers by following the plasma concentrations and the urinary excretion of the unchanged compound and its total radioactive metabolites after oral and intravenous administration. The compound was rapidly and completely absorbed after oral(More)
With the object of studying the kinetics of imipramine and desipramine five healthy volunteers received single intramuscular, oral and intravenous doses and multiple oral doses of imipramine hydrochloride on different occasions. Two of the volunteers also received single intramuscular and oral doses of desipramine hydrochloride. Great interindividual(More)
The demetylation of imipramine and clomipramine was studied after administration by different routes of single doses of clomipramine hydrochloride and multiple doses of clomipramine as well as imipramine hydrochloride. Five healthy volunteers received 1 mg of clomipramine hydrochloride/kg body weight as single oral and intramuscular doses on different(More)
The relationship between plasma prolactin (PRL) and drug levels in patients receiving neuroleptic drugs is of special interest in view of evidence that the PRL elevation induced by these durgs reaches its maximum at sub-therapeutic doses. Plasma PRL and fluphenazine (FPZ) levels were measured by radioimmunoassay (RIA) in each of 11 chronic schizophrenics(More)
