The Pharmacological response intensity of chlorzoxazone (CZX) was measured by the crossed extensor reflex (CER) method in anesthetized rats. The appropriate dose of alpha-chloralose (ACH) was examined to bring about a quantitative effect of CZX. The pharmacodynamics of CZX was also characterized in the anesthetized rats at three different doses of CZX. When rats were anesthetized with ACH at three different doses (80, 110, and 150 mg/kg i.p.), the CER response caused by CZX at the doses of 25…

Effect of alpha-chloralose on disposition and pharmacological action of orally administered chlorzoxazone in rats.
The pharmacodynamic behavior of orally administered chlorzoxazone (CZX) was studied in rats and it was found that CZX obeyed a one-compartment model with first-order absorption, suggesting that the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic concept proposed by Smolen was not applicable to CZX's behavior at such a dose in rats.
Relation of disposition kinetics to pharmacological effect of intravenous administration of chlorzoxazone in rats.
The quantitative relationship between a drug disposition and the pharmacological effect was examined in rats using chlorzoxazone, a centrally acting muscle relaxant, as a model drug and it was found that the biophase compartment was identical to the central compartment as long as the first order processes were proceeding.

The Biosynthesis of the Benzoxazole in Nataxazole Proceeds via an Unstable Ester and has Synthetic Utility
Structural, biochemical, and chemical evidence is reported that benzoxazole biosynthesis proceeds through an ester generated by an ATP‐dependent adenylating enzyme, which is a shunt product and not, as previously thought, an intermediate in the pathway.
An E. coli-Based Biosynthetic Platform Expands the Structural Diversity of Natural Benzoxazoles.
It is shown that the benzoxazole biosynthetic system is highly promiscuous in incorporating fluorine, chlorine, nitrile, picolinic, and alkyne functionalities into the scaffold by coupling this E. coli-based platform with precursor-directed biosynthesis.


Pharmacodynamics of chlorzoxazone in rats.
Pharmacological effect-time profiles of a centrally acting muscle relaxant, chlorzoxazone, were evaluated by both rotarod and crossed extensor reflex methods and the CER method proved to be of use for assessing the drug response based on the dose-independent kinetics with high sensitivity.
Pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic studies of piretanide in rabbits. III. Sodium and potassium excretion under different hydrated conditions.
The result indicated that the diuretic effect, even in the complete hydropenic condition (treatment III), was reasonably described by the model, with minor modifications, and the time course of the excretion rate of K (EK) was not always in parallel with ENa+K, but was dependent on treatments.
[Central muscle relaxant activities of 2-methyl-3-aminopropiophenone derivatives].
The results indicate that the MP derivative with a 2-methyl group may be suitable as a central muscle relaxant.
A pharmacokinetic analysis program (multi) for microcomputer.
A nonlinear least squares program (MULTI) for microcomputers was developed and the executions of MULTI are demonstrated for time courses of ampicillin and oxacillin in man.
