The interaction between tyramine and befloxatone, a new selective, reversible monoamine oxidase-A (MAO-A) inhibitor, was studied in a single-blind, parallel-group study in 30 healthy male volunteers whose fasting tyramine 30 dose (Tyr30) was 400 or 600 mg. Each subject completed a placebo run-in period followed by a befloxatone period. Befloxatone was given(More)
OBJECTIVES A new, ready-to-use solution for injection of paracetamol (Perfalgan 10 mg/ml) without previous reconstitution has been developed. The aim of the study was to determine the serum concentration profiles of paracetamol after 15 min infusion of Perfalgan 0.5 g and 1 g doses and to demonstrate the bioequivalence between Perfalgan 1 g dose and a(More)
Efforts to ease administration and enhance acceptability of the oral anti-malarial artemether-lumefantrine (A-L) crushed tablet to infants and children triggered the development of a novel dispersible tablet of A-L. During early development of this new formulation, two studies were performed in healthy subjects, one to evaluate the palatability of three(More)
To evaluate the safety and tolerability of high-dose formoterol and salbutamol in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). In this two-way crossover, double-blind, double-dummy study, 17 adults with mild-to-moderate COPD were randomized to receive either formoterol 24 microg (2 x 12 microg via Aerolizer), or salbutamol 600 microg (6 x 100(More)
The objective of this study was to assess the effect of a high-fat meal on the pharmacokinetics of moxidectin. Healthy male subjects were randomized to receive single oral 8 mg doses of moxidectin after an overnight fast or high-fat breakfast. In fasted subjects (N = 27), mean [SD] parameters were C(max): 58.9 [12.5] ng/mL; t(max): 3.7 [1.5] h; area under(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of food on the pharmacokinetics of the anti-malarial amodiaquine (AQ, CAS 6398-98-7) and artesunate (AS, CAS 182824-33-5) and their active metabolites [desethylamodiaquine (DSA, CAS 81496-81-3) and dihydroartemisinin (DHA, CAS79352-78-6), respectively] in healthy volunteers. METHODS In an open, two-way crossover study, 22(More)
Blood flow to working skeletal muscle is usually reduced during exercise in patients with congestive heart failure. An intrinsic impairment of skeletal muscle vasodilatory capacity has been suspected as a mechanism of this muscle underperfusion during maximal exercise, but its role during submaximal exercise remains unclear. Therefore, we studied by(More)
BACKGROUND Verorab was licensed in 1985 for both pre- and post-exposure prophylaxis of rabies. The next generation purified Vero cell rabies vaccine (PVRV-NG) is a highly purified vaccine. We performed a phase II clinical study in adults in France to assess its immunological non-inferiority and clinical safety for pre-exposure prophylaxis. METHODS In a(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of influenza and meningococcal vaccines in healthy subjects exposed to the anti-interleukin-1β (anti-IL-1β) monoclonal antibody canakinumab. This was an open-label, parallel group, randomized, single-center study of healthy subjects (aged 18 to 45 years). At baseline, antibody (Ab) titers were(More)
