UNLABELLED Omeprazole is frequently used to treat gastroesophageal reflux in infants and children despite the lack of age-specific pharmacokinetic and dosing information in the approved product labeling. To address this challenge, the authors examined the potential influence of development and cytochrome P450 2C19 (CYP2C19) genotype on omeprazole(More)
BACKGROUND Midazolam, a benzodiazepine, is finding expanded use in neonatal intensive care units. We studied the pharmacokinetics and metabolism of midazolam after a single intravenous dose in preterm infants. METHODS The pharmacokinetics of midazolam and its hydroxylated metabolite (1-OH-midazolam) after a single 0.1 mg/kg intravenous dose of midazolam(More)
Noise and vibration present increasing environmental problems to society. Noise and vibration are hazards to human when they occur at high levels, or continue for a long time. High noise levels can cause hearing loss, headaches, dizziness, high blood pressure, loss of concentration, heart disease...etc. There are many researches addressed effect of pumping(More)
Cytochrome P-450 (CYP) 2D6 is responsible for the biotransformation of over 35 pharmacologic agents. In the process of studying CYP2D6 we identified phenotype-genotype discordance in two individuals receiving terbinafine. This prompted evaluation of the potential for terbinafine to inhibit CYP2D6 in vitro. Human hepatic microsomes and heterologously(More)
Trichophyton tonsurans is the major pediatric pathogen in tinea capitis, causing disparate disease presentations. Little is known about genetic variation, which may ultimately be linked to divergent disease status. This investigation was aimed at identifying genetic variants of T. tonsurans by methods that can facilitate strain discrimination in(More)
Pleconaril is an orally active broad-spectrum antipicornaviral agent with excellent penetration into the central nervous system and nasal epithelium. The authors report the results of a randomized, placebo-controlled, dose escalation study of pleconaril oral capsules following single-dose administration of 50 to 1000 mg. Fifty-six healthy adults (ages(More)
BACKGROUND The Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS) allows compounds to be classified based on their in vitro solubility and intestinal permeability. The BCS has found widespread use in the pharmaceutical community to be an enabling guide for the rational selection of compounds, formulation for clinical advancement, and generic biowaivers. The(More)
Pleconaril is an orally active, broad-spectrum antipicornaviral agent which demonstrates excellent penetration into the central nervous system, liver, and nasal epithelium. In view of the potential pediatric use of pleconaril, we conducted a single-dose, open-label study to characterize the pharmacokinetics of this antiviral agent in pediatric patients.(More)
Cytochrome P4502D6 (CYP2D6) activity has been shown to be a determinant of both the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of tramadol in adults. This study evaluated the association between CYP2D6 activity, as determined by dextromethorphan (DM) urinary metabolite ratio, and tramadol biotransformation in 13 children (7-16 years). CYP2D6 genotype was(More)
