Busulfan is an alkylating agent that is widely used in preparative regimens for bone marrow transplantation (BMT). We developed a high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) assay for the determination of plasma busulfan concentrations in 30 patients who received oral doses of 1 mg/kg. Concentrations were fit by a one-compartment pharmacokinetic model(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish the HPLC fingerprint of water-soluble components of Salvia miltiorrhiza in Songtao, Guizhou, and to perform simultaneous determination of six components in it, so as to provide analytical method for its quality control. METHODS The analyses were performed on a Phenomenex Luna C18 (2) (250 mm x 4. 6 mm, 5µm) column eluted with 0. 4%(More)
Combination of low doses of de novo pyrimidine biosynthesis inhibitors with 5-fluorouracil (FU) has been proposed to increase the antitumor activity of FU. Brequinar is such an inhibitor that has little clinical antitumor effect when used alone. We determined the clonogenic survival of MGH-U1 cells treated with FU±leucovorin (LV)±brequinar and examined the(More)
Histamine-2 receptor antagonists (H2RAs) are principal components of the premedication regimen used to prevent major hypersensitivity reactions in patients receiving paclitaxel. Several different H2RAs, including cimetidine, ranitidine and famotidine, have been used in clinical trials of paclitaxel, as well as by clinicians in different geographic regions(More)
The principal objectives of this study were to determine the feasibility of escalating doses of the hydrophilic topoisomerase I (topo I) inhibitor topotecan (TPT) as a 30-mm infusion daily for 5 days in adults with refractory or relapsed acute leukemia and to study the pharmacokinetic behavior of high doses of TPT and pharmacodynamic determinants of TPT(More)
Aging influences the disposition and effects of several classes of drugs. Although drug clearance rate is correlated with toxicity for many anticancer drugs, few data have been published concerning the relationship of aging and clearance of chemotherapy. This study was performed to identify any relationship between age and clearance rate for anticancer(More)
To further evaluate the activity of topotecan (TPT) in acute leukemia, TPT was administered (2.1 mg/m2/day for 5 days by continuous i.v. infusion) to adult patients with previously untreated acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with high-risk features (13 patients) or relapsed ALL (1 patient). Patients achieving a partial response or significant hematological(More)
Salvia miltiorrhiza, liguspyragine hydrochloride, and glucose injection (SLGI) was made of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge., liguspyragine hydrochloride, glucose, and glycerin. There were many kinds of monosaccharide components in SLGI, which might be from the raw material and Salvia miltiorrhiza Bge. Separation was performed on a Phenomenex Luna C18 analytical(More)
