DB289 (pafuramidine maleate; 2,5-bis[4-(N-methoxyamidino)phenyl]furan monomaleate) is a prodrug of DB75 (furamidine dihydrochloride; 2,5-bis(4-guanylphenyl)furan dihydrochloride), an aromatic dication related to pentamidine that has demonstrated good efficacy against African trypanosomiasis, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia, and malaria, but lacks adequate(More)
1. Mean concentrations of total (14)C and of dexloxiglumide at the end of single 20-min infusion doses of (14)C-dexloxiglumide (200 mg) to four healthy male subjects were 18.5 microg eq x ml(-1) and 19.5 microg ml(-1) respectively. The mean plasma clearance (0.22 l h(-1) x kg(-1)) and mean volume of distribution (V(ss) = 0.18 l kg(-1)) were low. 2. Single(More)
A new, simple, and useful approach for the analysis of benzalkonium chloride is presented. A gas chromatography (GC) has been used to pyrolyze benzalkonium chloride in a specific and reproducible manner to yield two tertiary amines for each homologue of benzalkonium chloride present. These are separated by GC and are used to determine the homologue(More)
The objective of this study was to define CYP2D enzymes in marmoset (Callithrix jacchus) liver microsomes, both at the activity level using debrisoquine as the model substrate and at the protein level using antibodies raised to human CYP2D6. Marmoset liver microsomes were incubated with [(14)C]debrisoquine, and the structure of the generated metabolites was(More)
Dexloxiglumide (DEX) is a cholecystokinin type-1 receptor antagonist under development for the treatment of constipation-predominant irritable bowel syndrome. Studies of the potential interaction of DEX with human cytochromes P450 (CYPs) were conducted in vitro. DEX (300 micro M), both with and without a 15-min pre-incubation, was incubated with pooled(More)
