The effects of orally administered dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPP-IV) inhibitor on the glucose-lowering effect of glibenclamide are still unknown. We evaluated the effects of combination treatment with a long-lasting DPP-IV inhibitor, K579 ((S)-1-[4-methyl-1-(2-pyrimidinyl)-4-piperidylamino]acetyl-2-pyrrolidinecarbonitrile), and glibenclamide on the glycemic(More)
Ketamine, an N-methyl-d-aspartic acid (NMDA) receptor antagonist, may be useful for treating neuropathic pain, which is often difficult to control. We report a prospective study of 13 patients with acute neuropathic pain due to spinal cord injury (SCI) treated with ketamine. All underwent a test challenge with 5mg ketamine. Patients with satisfactory(More)
Dipeptidyl peptidase IV inhibitors are expected to be categorized in a new type of antidiabetic drugs. We had developed a long-acting dipeptidyl peptidase IV inhibitor, K579 [(S)-1-[4-methyl-1-(2-pyrimidinyl)-4-piperidylamino]acetyl-2-pyrrolidinecarbonitrile]. The aim of present study was to characterize the pharmacological profiles of K579. In normal rats,(More)
K579 ((S)-1-[4-methyl-1-(2-pyrimidinyl)-4-piperidylamino]acetyl-2-pyrrolidinecarbonitrile), which is a long-acting and a slow binding dipeptidyl peptidase IV inhibitor, preserved the endogenously secreted active forms of glucagon-like peptide-1, augmented the insulin response and ameliorated the glucose excursion during oral glucose tolerance test in rats.(More)
4-[4-(N-Substituted (thio)carbamoyl)-1-piperazinyl]-6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline derivatives such as KN1022 are potent inhibitors of the phosphorylation of platelet derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR). Structure activity relationships in the (thio)urea moiety, the phenyl ring itself, the linker between these two moieties, and the piperazine moiety were(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Temperature gradients in CO2 absorbents may locally increase the water content by condensation. We hypothesized that temperature gradient reduction (TGR) would prevent increased water content, thus preserving the reactivity of the CO2 absorbent and thereby increasing its time to exhaustion (longevity). The purpose of this study was(More)
A new series of 4-[4-(N-substituted carbamoyl)-1-piperazinyl]-6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline derivatives were found to show potent and selective inhibition of platelet-dervied growth factor (PDGF) receptor phosphorylation. In this exploration of the structure-activity relationships (SARs) of the prototype inhibitor KN1022, the 4-nitrophenylurea moiety was probed.(More)
Here, we investigated the structure-activity relationships of the 6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline moiety. With regard to exploration of positions and varieties of substituents on the quinazoline ring, 6,7-dialkoxy substitution was optimal. This study suggests the possibility of further modifications for this moiety.
A 75 mm low power 64 Gb MLC NAND flash memory capable of 30 MB/s program throughput and 533 MB/s data transfer rate at 1.8 V supply voltage is developed in 15 nm CMOS technology. 36% power reduction from 3.3 V design is achieved by a new pumping scheme. New low current peak features reduce a multi-die concurrent programming peak by 65% for 4-die case, and(More)
