Single oral 10 mg doses of diazepam and demethyldiazepam were given on different occasions to 16 healthy subjects. The subjects included four poor hydroxylators of debrisoquin and three poor hydroxylators of mephenytoin. There was a correlation between the total plasma clearance of diazepam and demethyldiazepam (rs = 0.83; p less than 0.01). There was no(More)
Mephenytoin (100 mg) and debrisoquin (10 mg) were administered orally, both separately and together, to 41 healthy subjects. The ratios between the S and R enantiomers of mephenytoin and between debrisoquin and 4-OH-debrisoquin in urine were determined by use of GC. These ratios were used as measures of drug hydroxylation. There was no change in the(More)
Analytical methods for determining metrifonate and dichlorvos in whole blood and a sampling procedure suitable for pharmacokinetic studies in man are described. Metrifonate concentrations were determined after chloroform extraction using gas chromatography-nitrogen-phosphorus detection. The within-assay coefficients of variation were 4 and 9% at 19.4 and(More)
1. Frusemide was given intravenously at a dose of 5 mg kg-1 to five healthy volunteers and the diuresis was assessed by frequent spontaneous voiding over 5 h. Urinary volume and contents of sodium, chloride, potassium and frusemide were measured. 2. Diuretic response was evaluated using the sigmoid Emax model and non linear regression of diuresis vs(More)
The excretion of amphetamine in human breast milk was studied in a nursing mother with narcolepsy, who was treated with 20 mg daily of a racemic preparation of amphetamine. The concentration of amphetamine was 3 and 7 times higher in breast milk than in maternal plasma on the 10th and 42nd days after delivery. Small amounts of amphetamine were found in(More)
The hearing ability was measured in anaesthetised guinea pigs by recording cochlear evoked potentials induced by standardised sound stimulation. The animals were given quinine intravenously and blood samples were withdrawn for assay of quinine. The shift in hearing threshold was closely related to the quinine blood concentration. The effect-concentration(More)
1. Hearing impairment was investigated in six healthy volunteers who received oral doses of 5, 10 and 15 mg kg-1 quinine single-blind and in random order. 2. The plasma concentration of quinine was followed for 48 h and the time course was fitted by a linear one compartment pharmacokinetic model. 3. Hearing thresholds were measured by pure tone audiometry.(More)
Six male healthy volunteers were given single oral doses of 7.5 mg/kg of metrifonate and concentrations of metrifonate and dichlorvos were determined in whole blood using a standardized sampling procedure. Blood was collected in test tubes containing equal volumes of 0.74 M phosphoric acid for the determinations of metrifonate and dichlorvos with gas(More)
