The concentration of phenytoin in saliva has been measured in 8 healthy volunteers at intervals after an intravenous dose and after single oral doses of five formulations commercially available in the United Kingdom. The six doses (all 300 mg) were given in random order and at least one week apart. There were no significant differences in the mean values of(More)
The pharmacokinetics of four sustained-release formulations of theophylline have been examined after single doses (Nuelin SA, Phyllocontin, Slo-phyllin and Theo-Dur) and at steady-state (Phyllocontin, Theo-Dur) in six healthy adult volunteers, selected because they all eliminated theophylline rapidly after an intravenous dose of aminophylline. After a(More)
The effects of penbutolol (40 mg), atenolol (100 mg) and sustained-release metoprolol (metoprolol SA) (200 mg) upon heart rate (HR) and blood pressure (BP) at rest and during bicycle ergometer exercise, have been compared in 12 healthy young men using a double-blind crossover design. Measurements of each drug's effect were made before and at 3, 10 and 24 h(More)
BACKGROUND Ribavirin blood levels vary considerably between patients with standard weight-based dosing. Their impact on sustained virological response (SVR) with pegylated interferon and ribavirin is controversial, but has mostly been studied before the IL28b gene polymorphism as a possible confounder was discovered. METHODS The impact of serum ribavirin(More)
The polymorphism of phenformin oxidation has been investigated in 103 non-insulin-dependent (Type II) diabetics. The frequency distribution was clearly bimodal and 14 poor metabolisers were identified. The frequency of the recessive allele (0.369) was not significantly different from that found previously in non-diabetics. Six of the extensive metabolisers(More)
