The pharmacological profile of befloxatone, a reversible, selective and competitive inhibitor of monoamine oxidase-A has been investigated in rodents. In mice, befloxatone was more active at potentiating generalized tremors induced by L-5-hydroxytryptophan (ED50, 0.21 mg/kg p.o.) than phenylethylamine-induced stereotypies (ED50, 58 mg/kg p.o.), indicating a(More)
The issue of fertility in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) has not been exhaustively studied. Epidemiological data have suggested that spontaneous fecundity might be reduced; several endocrine and sexual disturbances potentially interfering with reproduction have been evidenced in MS patients of both sexes. Moreover, some medical treatments used in MS(More)
Plasma levels of antidepressant drugs were measured in 17 depressed patients at roughly monthly intervals over follow-up periods of three to 26 months. Good results in seven were associated with small fluctuations in level from visit to visit, while big fluctuations were associated with poor outcome. Such fluctuations were probably from poor compliance or(More)
BACKGROUND Some data suggest that the results of human in vitro fertilization (IVF) may be affected by the site of the uterine cavity where embryos are released. It is not yet clear if there is an optimal range of embryo-fundus distance (EFD) within which embryos should be transferred to optimize IVF outcome. METHODS The present study included 1184(More)
Pharmacokinetic profiles of imipramine and a newer tetracyclic antidepressant, maprotiline, were studied in elderly (75-83 years of age) subjects who were given a single oral dose of 125 and 175 mg, respectively, of these drugs. The apparent elimination half-life of imipramine was 20.8-34.9h (means 26.4h), its biovailability (F) was 40-64% (means 57%), and(More)
