OBJECTIVE To investigate changes in renal function, urine N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase enzyme (N-AG),liver function, myocardial enzymes, the pathology of renal damage and the mechanism of acute renal failure (ARF) associated with fish gall bladder poisoning. METHODS Eleven patients with acute fish gall bladder poisoning were consecutively admitted to(More)
Purinergic receptor P2X3 has been linked to analgesia in a number of pre-clinical models of pain, and is expressed in the human pain perception pathway. Only few P2X3-selective antagonists have been reported to date. This Letter describes the SAR and in vivo analgesic profile of a novel scaffold of selective P2X3 antagonists.
A concise, stereocontrolled, and practical synthesis of a neuraminidase inhibitor consisting of a highly functionalized D-proline scaffold is described. Key features involve a stereocontrolled addition of a propiolate ester to a chiral nonracemic nitrone derived originally from D-serine and the manipulation of acyclic and cyclic motifs en route to the(More)
An oral, peripherally restricted CB1/CB2 agonist could provide an interesting approach to treat chronic pain by harnessing the analgesic properties of cannabinoids but without the well-known central side effects. γ-Carbolines are a novel class of potent mixed CB1/CB2 agonists characterized by attractive physicochemical properties including high aqueous(More)
A practical and highly efficient route to the synthesis of pharmaceutically interesting quinoxalinone scaffolds is reported. The key step involves an intramolecular palladium-catalyzed N-arylation under microwave irradiation. The developed methodology tolerates a variety of bromoanilides to afford a diverse collection of bicyclic and polycyclic(More)
