Indicators of transport stress were investigated in blood parameters of five male cynomolgus monkeys obtained from abroad. They underwent air and ground travel-related stress in transport cages for a 15-hour transit time. On arrival, hematological parameters of white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hemoglobin concentration, and hematocrit values(More)
DW-116, 1-(5-fluoro-2-pyridyl)-6-fluoro-7-(4-methyl-l-piperazinyl)-1, 4-dihydro-4-oxoquinolone-3-carboxylic acid hydrochloride, is a newly developed fluoroquinolone antibacterial. The potential of DW-116 to induce developmental toxicity was investigated in Sprague-Dawley rats. DW-116 was administered by gavage to pregnant rats from days 6 to 16 of gestation(More)
The potential application of toxicogenomics to predictive toxicology has been discussed widely, but the utility of the approach remains largely unproven. Using cDNA microarrays, we compared the gene expression profiles produced in mouse lymphoma cells by three genotoxic compounds, hydroxyurea (a carcinogen), p-anisidine (a noncarcinogen), and paclitaxel(More)
Cataract causing lr2 gene is found in the CXSD mouse, which is a recombinant inbred strain of BALB/c and STS mice. For the process of positional cloning of lr2, several candidate genes were selected in the middle region of chromosome 14, but most of them were excluded by combination of recombination and homozygosity mapping. Components of neurofilament(More)
CKD-602 is a newly developed camptothecin anticancer agent. Preclinical studies suggest that it may have greater antitumor activity and lower toxicity than other camptothecin anticancer agents. The potential of CKD-602 to induce developmental toxicity was investigated in the New Zealand White rabbit. Seventy-two artificially inseminated females (artificial(More)
The profiles of home cage locomotor activity and its rhythmicity were investigated using a camera system for 4 consecutive days in cynomolgus monkeys. Nine male and nine female cynomolgus monkeys were used in this study, and were found to have the same profile in nocturnal behavior in that they were mostly inactive during the night. The locomotor activity(More)
The effects of ketamine anesthesia on both hematological and serum biochemical variables were investigated in 19 male and 15 female cynomolgus monkeys. Blood samples were obtained from the cephalic vein within 30 minutes of an intramuscular injection of ketamine hydrochloride (10 mg/kg). Ketamine anesthesia caused a reduction in leukocyte counts and a(More)
To investigate the safety pharmacology of a novel fluoroquinolone antibiotic agent, DW-224a, on the vital functions, we studied its effects on the central nervous system, cardiovascular system and respiratory system. To determine the effects on the central nervous system, we used a modified Irwin's test at each time point after oral administration of(More)
This study examined the potential adverse effects of a new camptothecin anticancer agent, CKD-602, on the fertility and early embryonic development of Sprague-Dawley rats. Ninety-six rats of each gender were divided into four groups: three treatment groups and a control group. CKD-602 was administered intravenously to male rats at 0, 4.7, 14, and 42(More)
The World Health Organization reports that 235 million people are currently affected by asthma. This disease is associated with an imbalance of Th1 and Th2 cells, which results in the upregulation of cytokines that promote chronic inflammation of the respiratory system. The inflammatory response causes airway obstruction and can ultimately result in death.(More)
