The transformation kinetics of mefenamic acid form II to form I in three kinds of solvents and under high humidity conditions were extensively investigated. Form II crystals were suspended in water, 50% ethanol and ethanol at 28, 33 and 37 degrees C, or stored at 50, 60 and 70 degrees C at 97% RH. Form II transformed to form I under all storage conditions and the rate of transformation depended on the kind of solvent. The transformation followed the three-dimensional nuclei growth mechanism, depending on temperature. The nuclei formation and growth processes were significantly accelerated in ethanol compared with water. The addition of seed crystals of the stable form I shortened the both nuclei formation and growth processes and therefore the transformation was accelerated.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) are analgesic, antipyretic, and, as their name implies, anti-inflammatory drugs, which are widely used for the treatment of a variety of human and veterinary disease conditions in which control of pain and inflammation is desired. Acetaminophen (ACE) is a common over-the-counter analgesic. Detection of a variety of widely used NSAIDs and ACE in fluid and tissue samples is an important diagnostic tool. A sensitive and selective analytical method has been developed for simultaneous screening of 12 NSAIDs and ACE by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry with an atmospheric pressure chemical ionization interface set to operate in the negative ion mode of MS. Following sample preparation, all analytes were separated on a C18-reversed-phase column with a gradient elution of acetonitrile and acetic acid. Full-scan mass spectral fragmentation profiles were established for each analyte and individual extracted ion chromatograms were used for quantitation. Linearity of detection was observed over the 0.05-25.0 microg/mL range of standard concentrations. The instrument limits of detection (LOD), based on an individual analyte quantitation ions, fell between 0.05 and 1.0 microg/mL for all compounds. The matrix LODs were determined to be 0.05 microg/mL for phenylbutazone (m/z 307); 0.1 microg/mL for indomethacin (m/z 312), flunixin (m/z 295), and piroxicam (m/z 330); 0.5 microg/mL for ACE (m/z 150), diclofenac (m/z 250), ketoprofen (m/z 209), and mefenamic acid (m/z 240); 1.0 microg/mL for oxyphenbutazone (m/z 323); 5.0 microg/mL for ibuprofen (m/z 205), salicylic acid (m/z 137), and tolmetin (m/z 212); and 10 microg/mL for naproxen (m/z 185).

A series of novel omega-(N,N,N-trialkylammonium)alkyl ester and thioester derivatives [RCOM(CH2)nNR3+ X-, M = O or S. n = 2-6, X = I or Cl] of 11 nonsteroidal antiinflammatory carboxylic acid agents (naproxen, ketorolac, indomethacin, ibuprofen, sulindac, ketoprofen, flufenamic acid, mefenamic acid, zomepirac, etodolac, and tifurac) was prepared and evaluated for their antiinflammatory, analgesic, and gastrointestinal erosive properties. In general, each prodrug retained the antiinflammatory activity characteristic of the corresponding parent drug but exhibited moderately to greatly reduced gastrointestinal erosive properties and significantly reduced analgetic potencies. This profile is likely due to a combination of factors including the rate of hydrolysis of the esters in the stomach, gut, and plasma, changes in the locus of absorption of the prodrug or nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID), and altered metabolic disposition patterns resulting from these changes. The results obtained from the compounds of this series indicate that esters of this general class may offer a means to modulate both the aqueous/lipid solubility and the hydrolytic/enzymatic cleavage indices of NSAID prodrugs which potentially possess a more favorable therapeutic ratio of antiinflammatory to gastrointestinal erosive activities.

Phenytoin (pulverized powder), mefenamic acid (capsule), and sulpiride (film-coated tablet) are currently available on the Japanese market. For absorption of these drugs from their pharmaceutical preparations, they must disintegrate and dissolve during passage through the gastrointestinal tract. The bioavailability of these drugs differ among different pharmaceutical preparations and even for the same preparation. This led to a review of the influence of the features of pharmaceutical preparations and the physicochemical properties of film coating materials as well as the physiologic factors affecting drug bioavailability. The influence of coadministered drugs and concomitant intake of beverages and food on the bioavailability of drugs from pharmaceutical preparations is also described.

The enzyme L-glutamineD-fructose-6-phosphate aminotransferase (EC was isolated, partially characterized, and purified from the gastric mucosa of dogs. A new method, using 14C-fructose-6-phosphate, has been developed for the estimation of the enzyme activity. Several classes of standard anti-inflammatory agents including acetyl-salicylic acid, salicylic acid, flufenamic acid, phenyl-butazone, indometacin, mefenamic acid, oxyphenyl-butazone, antipyrine, aminophenazone, allopurinol, cortisol, and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO) were found to be inhibitors of this enzyme. The property of inhibition of this amino-transferase could, thus, be used as a rapid in vitro test method for the primary screening of potential anti-inflammatory agents.

1. Using conventional microelectrodes, the perforated patch clamp technique and fluorescence microscopy with fura-2, we investigated the relationship between the cell membrane potential, whole-cell currents and the free cytoplasmic Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]i) in response to 10 nM endothelin-1 (ET) in a rat respiratory epithelial cell line (L2). 2. Microelectrode experiments revealed that ET caused an immediate depolarization of the cell membrane potential (Vm) by 25 mV, which was unaffected by Na+ replacement with N-methyl-D-glucamine+ (NMDG+) or by omission of bath Ca2+. In contrast, ET depolarized the cells by 61 mV in the presence of low C1- (6 mM), resulting in a complete breakdown of Vm. 3. In perforated patch clamp experiments, the ET-induced whole-cell current (IET) exhibited a slight outward rectification with a reversal potential (Vrev) of -22.7 mV. IET was reduced by 85 % in low C1- (6 mM), but was unaffected by Ca2+ removal, Na+ replacement with NMDG+, pipette K+ replacement with Cs+ or 1 mM Ni2+ in the bath. 4. IET was unaffected by (+)-isradipine (100 nM), a specific L-type Ca2+ channel (L-VDCC) blocker. Transient inward Sr2+ currents through L-VDCCs were blocked by ET. 5. ET induced a biphasic Ca2+ signal, consisting of a 'peak' and a 'plateau' elevation of [Ca2+]i. Simultaneous patch clamp and fura-2 measurements revealed that IET coincided with intracellular Ca2+ release but clearly outlasted the elevation of [Ca2+]i. When the rise of [Ca2+]i was prevented by pretreatment with thapsigargin in a Ca2+-free bath, both activation time and amplitude of IET were reduced. Under these conditions, ET caused a decrease of [Ca2+]i. 6. The C1- channel blocker mefenamic acid (MFA) had a dual, concentration-dependent effect on both IET and the ET-induced 'plateau' elevation of [Ca2+]i: an increase at 10 microM, but an almost complete block at 100 microM. The effect of MFA on IET preceded the effect on [Ca2+]i. 7. The ET-induced 'plateau' [Ca2+]i fell below control values in a low-C1- (6 mM) solution. 8. These data indicate an amplifying function of intracellular Ca2+ release on an otherwise Ca2+-independent, unique C1- current by ET. Moreover, this C1- current appears to be functionally coupled with dihydropyridine (DHP)-insensitive Ca2+ entry, suggesting a modulatory role for long-lasting effects of ET.

It is generally accepted that the clinical efficacy of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) arises mainly from the inhibition of cyclooxygenase (COX). However, more evidence has suggested that certain pharmacological actions of NSAIDs may be mediated by COX-independent mechanisms. The present study investigated the effects of NSAIDs on adenosine uptake in human aortic smooth muscle cells (HASMCs). Among the NSAIDs tested (all at 100 microM), aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen had no effect on [(3)H]adenosine uptake. Piroxicam inhibited [(3)H]adenosine uptake by 30%, while etodolac, indomethacin, ketoprofen, mefenamic acid and sulindac inhibited [(3)H]adenosine by 13-18%. Sulindac sulfide, an active metabolite of sulindac, inhibited [(3)H]adenosine uptake and [(3)H]nitrobenzylmercaptopurine ribonucleoside (NBMPR) binding of HASMCs with IC(50) values of 40.67+/-4.82 and 24.19+/-3.76 muM, respectively. Kinetic studies revealed that sulindac sulfide was a competitive inhibitor of adenosine uptake. Using the nucleoside-transporter-deficient PK15NTD cells that stably express equilibrative nucleoside transport (ENT) 1 and ENT2, it was found that the inhibitory effect of sulindac sulfide on ENT1 was greater than that on ENT2. Sulindac sulfide increased the extracellular adenosine level. In addition, it inhibited the proliferation of HASMCs and this anti-proliferative effect could be abolished by adenosine A(2B) receptor antagonist. Our results suggest that sulindac sulfide may exert pharmacological effects through the inhibition of adenosine uptake, which modulates the availability of adenosine in the vicinity of adenosine receptors.

A novel plasma-assisted desorption/ionization (PADI) method that can be coupled with atmospheric pressure sampling mass spectrometry to yield mass spectral information under ambient conditions of pressure and humidity from a range of surfaces without the requirement for sample preparation or additives is reported. PADI is carried out by generating a nonthermal plasma which interacts directly with the surface of the analyte. Desorption and ionization then occur at the surface, and ions are sampled by the mass spectrometer. The PADI technique is demonstrated and compared with desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) for the detection of active ingredients in a range of over-the-counter and prescription pharmaceutical formulations, including nonsterodial anti-inflammatory drugs (mefenamic acid, Ibugel, and ibuprofen), analgesics (paracetamol, Anadin Extra), and Beecham's "all in one" cold and flu remedy. PADI has also been successfully applied to the analysis of nicotine in tobacco and thiosulfates in garlic. PADI experiments have been performed using a prototype source interfaced with a Waters Platform LCZ single-quadrupole mass spectrometer with limited modifications and a Hiden Analytical HPR-60 molecular beam mass spectrometer (MBMS). The ability of PADI to rapidly detect active ingredients in pharmaceuticals without the need for prior sample preparation, solvents, or exposed high voltages demonstrates the potential of the technique for high-throughput screening in a pharmaceutical or forensic environment.

Neonatal lupus is a unique clinical entity characterized primarily by cutaneous or cardiac injury. Dermatitis usually resolves without significant residual effects but heart block may be irreversible and life threatening during the neonatal period. SS-A/Ro and/or SS-B/La antibodies of maternal origin are present in the serum of the mother and affected infant and are markers for this syndrome. For many mothers breast feeding is the preferred choice for infant nutrition. With proper guidance, lactating mothers may safely use several antirheumatic medications such as ibuprofen, piroxicam, flurbiprofen, diclofenac, mefenamic acid, prednisone, sulfasalazine, and methotrexate.

A 52-year-old man was found dead in his bed. He had financial and psychosocial problems like separation from his wife and children or unemployment due to alcoholism. Under treatment of disulfiram he was presently abstinent from alcohol. As he had suffered from epileptic seizures and dizziness, he received valproic acid and the vasodilator naftidrofuryl, respectively. Autopsy showed no morphologic cause of death. Chemical analysis of blood revealed concentrations for valproic acid and disulfiram in the therapeutic and above the therapeutic range but far below the lethal level, respectively. No ethanol was found. However, the very high concentration of 7500 microg/L naftidrofuryl in whole blood was considered as cause of death, and the most probable manner of death seemed to be suicide. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of a fatal poisoning with naftidrofuryl.

CCA(N-(2-carboxyphenyl)-4-chloroanthranilic acid disodium salt is a new synthetic compound which structurally resembles mefenamic acid. CCA induces inhibition of the adjuvant arthritis in rats and has been reported as activator of suppressor T lymphocytes. These findings stimulated to us to elucidate whether or not CCA possesses inhibitory effects on immunoglobulin E (IgE) production, an immunological system in which T suppressor cells play a cardinal role. Mice F1 (BALB/c x C57BL/6J) and C3H/A were immunized using the procedure of several s.c. injections with low dose of ovalbumin and aluminium hydroxide gel. CCA (5 mg/kg and 50 mg/kg) was administered to mice several weeks by oral route. The titers of IgE were compared in controls and treated animals using the method of passive cutaneous anaphylaxis (PCA) in rats. At a dose of 5 mg/kg CCA reduced partially the titers of IgE in treated animals with respect to controls and at a dose of 50 mg/kg this inhibition was more pronounced. These results support a potential usefulness of CCA in bronchial asthma and other immediate type allergic disorders.

Second-order advantage of excitation-emission fluorescence measurements was applied to the simultaneous determination of paracetamol (PC) and mefenamic acid (MF) in urine samples. Two drugs were quantified by multivariate curve resolution coupled to alternative least squares (MCR-ALS) in micellar media of sodium dodesyl sulfate (SDS). Experimental conditions including pH and SDS concentration were optimized. Under the optimum conditions, pH 2.0 and 0.05 mol L(-1) of SDS, paracetamol and mefenamic acid were determined in concentration range 4.00-20.00 microg mL(-1) and 0.80-5.00 microg mL(-1), respectively, in urine samples.

Gastric lesions were produced in rats by the administration for 2 weeks of 300 mg/kg/day of mepirizole, a basic non-steroidal antiinflammatory compound. Although the single administration of 200 mg/kg of mepirizole had no effect, the addition of water-immersion stress for one hour induced lesions not only in the corpus but also in the pyloric antrum. The administration of 250 mg/kg of mefenamic acid, an acidic non-steroidal antiinflammatory compound (insufficient for producing gastric lesions at this dose alone) with the addition of one hour of water-immersion stress induced gastric lesions. The addition of 200 mg/kg of mepirizole reduced the ulcer index from 8.1 to 4.7 in the corpus and from 4 to 0.5 in the pyloric antrum. It is suggested that basic antiinflammatory compounds inhibit gastric lesions induced by combination of acidic antiinflammatory compounds and water-immersion stress.

The enantioseparation of pranoprofen after its addition in racemic form into equine plasma and urine was conducted by chiral liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry in selected reaction monitoring mode. The methods for the assay of both enantiomers were linear (r≥0.9943) in the low range from 0.001 to 0.1μg/mL and high range from 0.01 to 1.0μg/mL with good precision (% RSD≤5.6) and accuracy (% RE=-5.3 to 1.9). When racemic pranoprofen was orally administered to four horses at a single dose of 3.1mg/kg, the median plasma concentrations of (R)-pranoprofen were lower than the levels of (S)-pranoprofen from start to finish. In contrast, the urinary level of (R)-pranoprofen was 2.5 fold higher than (S)-pranoprofen level for the first 6h, followed by its rapid decrease down below (S)-pranoprofen concentration. Monitoring of the R/S ratios in equine urine may be useful for the prevention of false positive in horse doping test.

Diffusion-edited NMR spectroscopy is used to enable the structural characterization of low level metabolites in the presence of endogenous compounds, and organic solvents. We compared data from standard one-dimensional (1D) (1)H, 1D NOESY-presaturation, and 1D diffusion-edited experiments run on 20 microg and 100 microg samples of ethacrynic acid glutathione thioether (EASG) and a previously unreported metabolite of mefenamic acid, mefenamic acid glutathione thioester (MSG). The 1D NOESY-presaturation technique gave spectra with the best signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio, approximately three times that observed with the standard (1)H experiment, with respect to the metabolite signals. However, it was not selective for solvent signals as overlapping metabolite signals were also suppressed by this technique. In some cases, these signals were key to determining the site of glutathione attachment on the parent molecule. 1D NOESY-presaturation spectra also produced baseline distortions and inconsistent integration values. By comparison, 1D diffusion-edited experiments were found to selectively and simultaneously remove multiple solvent signals, resolve overlapping metabolite signals, and provide more uniform integration for metabolite signals overlapping with or proximal to solvent peaks, without producing baseline distortions. However, the diffusion-edited experiments caused significant signal attenuation of the metabolite signals when compared with a standard (1)H spectrum. Partially purified metabolites isolated from biological matrices were also characterized by using two-dimensional diffusion-ordered spectroscopy (DOSY). DOSY spectra acquired on a sample of EASG purified from rat bile proved useful in 'separating' the signals of EASG, from those of a co-eluting bile acid and parent drug ethacrynic acid (EA) in the diffusion-dimension in regions where there was no spectral overlap. In the low-field regions of high overlap, the DOSY experiment did not effectively separate the signals from the individual components. Diffusion based experiments provide a way to determine the total number of components that are present in a metabolite sample as well as an ability to identify them based on the chemical shift information, without the need for laborious chromatography on small samples.

The hepatotropic effect of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) such as indomethacin, voltaren, piroxicam, phenylbutazon, mefenamic acid was studied. It was found that according to their level of the pharmacological protection of the liver against tetrachlormethan these agents may be arranged in the following sequence: mefenamic acid, phenylbutazon, voltaren, piroxicam. The hepatoprotective effect of NSAID correlates with the antioxidant properties and fails to correlate with the antioxidant ones. The hepatotoxic effect of NSAID was determined by their ability to suppress synthesis of prostaglandins.

We reported recently that stimulation of postjunctional alpha-2 adrenergic receptors prolongs the action potential durations (APD) of isolated canine Purkinje fibers. With standard microelectrode techniques, we examined the ionic mechanism through which alpha-2 adrenergic stimulation prolonged Purkinje APD, by measuring the effects of inhibitors of the various plateau currents on the alpha-2-mediated prolongation of APD. The alpha-2-specific agonist UK 14,304 (0.1 microM) prolonged the Purkinje APD at 50% repolarization and the APD at 90% repolarization, and these effects were inhibited by yohimbine (0.1 microM). The Purkinje APD at 50% repolarization and the APD at 90% repolarization were prolonged significantly with the transient outward potassium current inhibitor 4-aminopyridine (1 mM), the rapid component of delayed rectifier potassium current inhibitor d-sotalol (10 microM), the slow component of delayed rectifier potassium current inhibitor indapamide (0.1 microM) and the chloride current inhibitor mefenamic acid (10 nM) and were shortened significantly with the calcium current inhibitor nifedipine (0.3 microM). Prolongation of Purkinje APD at 50% repolarization and APD at 90% repolarization by UK 14,304 remained intact in the presence of d-sotalol, indapamide, mefenamic acid and nifedipine. All of these UK 14,304 effects were significantly reversed by yohimbine. Only in the presence of 4-aminopyridine did UK 14,304 fail to prolong Purkinje APD. The phase 1 magnitudes of Purkinje action potentials were also significantly inhibited by UK 14,304. This effect was completely abolished only in the presence of 4-aminopyridine. These results suggest that inhibition of the 4-aminopyridine-sensitive transient outward potassium current is the major ionic mechanism by which alpha-2 adrenergic stimulation prolongs Purkinje APD.

The levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine device (LNG IUS) is more effective than oral medication as a treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB). It is associated with a greater reduction in HMB, improved quality of life and appears to be more acceptable long term but is associated with more minor adverse effects than oral therapy.When compared to endometrial ablation, it is not clear whether the LNG IUS offers any benefits with regard to reduced HMB and satisfaction rates and quality of life measures were similar. Some minor adverse effects were more common with the LNG IUS but it appeared to be more cost effective than endometrial ablation techniques.The LNG IUS was less effective than hysterectomy in reducing HMB. Both treatments improved quality of life but the LNG IUS appeared more cost effective than hysterectomy for up to 10 years after treatment.

Nuclear receptor humanized mice models have been developed to predict regulation of drug metabolizing enzyme by xenobiotics. However, limited information is available concerning xenobiotic-induced regulation of drug metabolizing enzymes in multiple nuclear receptor humanized mice. The present study investigated the hepatic regulation of cytochrome P450s (CYPs) and UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) in the pregnane X receptor (PXR) and the constitutive androstane receptor double humanized mice treated with rifampicin (RIF; 10mg/kg) for 4 days. RIF increased hepatic microsomal protein and total CYP contents, and CYP reductase activity in the humanized mice, but not in normal mice. Moreover, hepatic induction of Cyp2b10, Cyp2c, and Cyp3a11 were observed only in the RIF-treated humanized mice, suggesting that the humanized mice are sensitive to RIF with respect to the regulation of the hepatic CYP system. Hepatic UGT activities using estradiol, serotonin, and mefenamic acid, but not chenodeoxycholic acid as substrates, increased in the RIF-treated humanized mice, and the glucuronidation activities of estradiol and chenodeoxycholic acid increased in RIF-treated normal mice. These results raise the possibility that a PXR-independent mechanism may be involved in hepatic regulation of UGTs by RIF.

Adenomyosis is the major cause of menorrhagia, dysmenorrhea, and an enlarged uterus, which causes great distress to the patient. Surgical hysterectomy has been used in the past as a treatment option for adenomyosis, but acceptability of this intervention is minimal due to an increased risk in morbidity and mortality. This article presents the successful medical treatment of an enlarged adenomyotic uterus with the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system (LNG-IUS) using a case report of a 42-year-old woman with adenomyosis who received the LNG-IUS as a long-term therapy for menorrhagia and dysmenorrhea. Regular menstruation without pain was reported after 3 months of treatment with a 27% decrease in uterine size after 9 months. The effectiveness of the LNG-IUS was hypothesized to be due to two factors: 1) decidualization and subsequent marked atrophy of the endometrium; 2) direct action of the hormone on the foci of the adenomyosis. A reported side effect of the LNG-IUS is the irregularity of bleeding during the initial treatment. The study suggests that use of the LNG-IUS is a viable option and could greatly advance the treatment buy ponstel of adenomyosis.

The occurrence and fate of five acidic drugs (Mefenamic acid, Ibuprofen, Ketoprofen, Diclofenac buy ponstel and Clofibric acid) were analysed in three sewage treatment plants (STP) over 4-7 consecutive days. The results point out that the five substances were persistent in wastewater effluents after municipal wastewater treatment. At the most, half of Mefenamic acid was eliminated. Ibuprofen was well removed (80%) by one sewage treatment plant. The removal of Ibuprofen is dependent on the residence time of wastewater in the STPs. A long raining period induce an important decrease of removal of Ibuprofen and Ketoprofen. Removal rates showed a great variability according to sewage treatment plants and types of treatments (e.g. biological, physico-chemical). The concentrations of Ibuprofen, Mefenamic acid and Diclofenac were relatively high in the effluents (150-2000 ng/l), showing a potential contamination of surface water.

Zinc(II) complexes of a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, mefenamic acid(=Hmef) in the absence or presence of the nitrogen donor heterocyclic ligands 2,2'-bipyridine(=bipy), 2,2'-bipyridylamine(=bipyam), 2,2'-dipyridylketone oxime(=Hpko) or 1,10-phenanthroline(=phen) have been synthesized and characterized. The crystal structures of [Zn(mef-O,O')2(bipy)], 2, [Zn(mef-O)2(Hpko-N,N')2]·EtOH, 4 and [Zn(mef-O)(mef-O,O')(phen)(H2O)], 5, have been determined by X-ray crystallography showing distinct binding modes of mefenamato carboxylato group, bidentate in 2, monodentate in 4 or both in 5. Interaction studies of the complexes with calf-thymus DNA (CT DNA) have shown that complexes can bind to CT DNA with [Zn(mef-O)2(Hpko)2] exhibiting the highest binding constant to CT DNA (Kb = 1.93(±0.04) × 10(7) M(-1)). The complexes can bind to CT DNA via intercalation as concluded by DNA solution viscosity measurements. Competitive studies with ethidium bromide (EB) have shown that the complexes can displace the DNA-bound EB. The complexes exhibit good binding affinity to serum albumin proteins with [Zn(mef-O)2(H2O)4], 1 exhibiting the highest quenching ability (kq = 1.46 × 10(15) M(-1) s(-1) for human and 5.55 × 10(15) M(-1) s(-1) for bovine serum albumin). All compounds have been tested for their antioxidant and free radical scavenging activity as well buy ponstel as for their in vitro inhibitory activity against soybean lipoxygenase. The scavenging activity is low to moderate against 1,1-diphenyl-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radicals and high against hydroxyl and 2,2'-azinobis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS(+·)) radicals, with [Zn(mef-O)2(H2O)4], 1 (ABTS%, 0.1 mM: 94.75(±1.06)%; (·)OH%, 0.1mM: 96.69(±0.27)%; LOX: IC50 = 27.34(±0.90) μM) exhibiting the highest scavenging activity of the ABTS radical cation among the complexes. Additionally, the complexes exhibit higher scavenging and LOX inhibitory activity than free mefenamic acid (ABTS%, 0.1 mM: 66.32(±0.38)%; (·)OH%, 0.1 mM: 92.51(±0.44)%; LOX: IC50 = 48.52(±0.88) μM).

Human pluripotent stem cells have enormous potential value in neuropharmacology and drug discovery yet there is little data on the major classes and properties of receptors and ion channels expressed by neurons derived from these stem cells. Recent studies in this lab have therefore used conventional patch-clamp electrophysiology to investigate the pharmacological properties of the ligand and voltage-gated ion channels in neurons derived and maintained in vitro from the human stem cell (hSC) line, stem cells were differentiated with retinoic acid and used in electrophysiological experiments 28-50 days after beginning differentiation. HSC-derived neurons generated large whole cell currents with depolarizing voltage steps (-80 to 30 mV) comprised of an inward, rapidly inactivating component and a delayed, slowly deactivating outward component. The fast inward current was blocked by the sodium channel blocker tetrodotoxin (0.1 μM) and the outward currents were significantly reduced by tetraethylammonium ions (TEA, 5 mM) consistent with the presence of functional Na and K ion channels. Application of the inhibitory neurotransmitters, GABA (0.1-1000 μM) or glycine (0.1-1000 μM) evoked concentration dependent currents. The GABA currents were inhibited by the convulsants, picrotoxin (10 μM) and bicuculline (3 μM), potentiated by the NSAID mefenamic acid (10-100 μM), the general anaesthetic pentobarbital (100 μM), the neurosteroid allopregnanolone and the anxiolytics chlordiazepoxide (10 μM) and diazepam (10 μM) all consistent with the expression of GABA(A) receptors. Responses to glycine were reversibly blocked by strychnine ( buy ponstel 10 μM) consistent with glycine-gated chloride channels. The excitatory agonists, glutamate (1-1000 μM) and NMDA (1-1000 μM) activated concentration-dependent responses from hSC-derived neurons. Glutamate currents were inhibited by kynurenic acid (1 mM) and NMDA responses were blocked by MgCl(2) (2 mM) in a highly voltage-dependent manner. Together, these findings show that neurons derived from human stem cells develop an array of functional receptors and ion channels with a pharmacological profile in keeping with that described for native neurons. This study therefore provides support for the hypothesis that stem cells may provide a powerful source of human neurons for future neuropharmacological studies.

An analytical method that facilitated the analysis of 11 pharmaceuticals residue (caffeine, prazosin, enalapril, carbamazepine, nifedipine, levonorgestrel, simvastatin, hydrochlorothiazide, gliclazide, diclofenac-Na, and mefenamic acid) with a single pre-treatment protocol was developed. The proposed method included an isolation and concentration procedure using solid phase extraction (Oasis HLB), a separation step using high-performance liquid chromatography, and a detection procedure that applies time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The method was validated for drinking water (DW), surface water (SW), sewage treatment plant (STP) influent and effluent, and hospital (HSP) influent and effluent. The limits of quantification were as low as 0.4, 1.6, 5, 3, 2.2 and 11 ng/L in DW, SW, HSP influent and effluent, STP effluent, and STP influent, respectively. On average, good recoveries higher buy ponstel than 75% were obtained for most of the target analytes in all matrices. Matrix effect was evaluated for all samples matrices. The proposed method successfully determined and quantified the target compounds in raw and treated wastewater of four STPs and three hospitals in Malaysia, as well as in two SW sites. The results showed that a number of the studied compounds pose moderate to high persistency in sewage treatment effluents as well as in the recipient rivers, namely; caffeine, simvastatin, and hydrochlorothiazide. Ten out of 11 compounds were detected and quantified in 13 sampling points. Caffeine was detected with the highest level, with concentrations reaching up to 9099 ng/L in STP influent.

Lorcaserin, a selective serotonin 5-HT(2C) receptor agonist, is a weight management agent in clinical development. Lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronidation governs the predominant excretory pathway of lorcaserin in humans. Human UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) responsible for lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronidation are identified herein. Lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronide formation was characterized by the following approaches: metabolic screening using human tissues (liver, kidney, intestine, and lung) buy ponstel and recombinant enzymes, kinetic analyses, and inhibition studies. Whereas microsomes from all human tissues studied herein were found to be catalytically active for lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronidation, liver microsomes were the most efficient. With recombinant UGT enzymes, lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronidation was predominantly catalyzed by three UGT2Bs (UGT2B7, UGT2B15, and UGT2B17), whereas two UGT1As (UGT1A6 and UGT1A9) played a minor role. UGT2B15 was most efficient, with an apparent K(m) value of 51.6 ± 1.9 μM and V(max) value of 237.4 ± 2.8 pmol/mg protein/min. The rank order of catalytic efficiency of human UGT enzymes for lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronidation was UGT2B15 > UGT2B7 > UGT2B17 > UGT1A9 > UGT1A6. Inhibition of lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronidation activities of UGT2B7, UGT2B15, and UGT2B17 in human liver microsomes by mefenamic acid, bisphenol A, and eugenol further substantiated the involvement of these UGT2B isoforms. In conclusion, multiple human UGT enzymes catalyze N-carbamoyl glucuronidation of lorcaserin; therefore, it is unlikely that inhibition of any one of these UGT activities will lead to significant inhibition of the lorcaserin N-carbamoyl glucuronidation pathway. Thus, the potential for drug-drug interaction by concomitant administration of a drug(s) that is metabolized by any of these UGTs is remote.

Only one study, trial B in the report of Gersony 1983, was found eligible. The trial compared the effect of surgical ligation of PDA versus medical treatment with indomethacin, each used as the primary treatment. No trials comparing surgery to other cyclooxygenase inhibitors (ibuprofen, mefenamic acid) were found. Trial B of Gersony 1983 enrolled 154 infants. The study found no statistically significant difference between surgical closure and indomethacin treatment in mortality during hospital stay, chronic lung disease, other bleeding, necrotizing enterocolitis, sepsis, creatinine level, or intraventricular hemorrhage. There was a statistically significant increase in the surgical group in incidence of pneumothorax [RR 2.68 (95% CI 1.45, 4.93); RD 0.25 (95% CI 0.11, 0.38); NNH 4 (95% CI 3, 9)] and retinopathy of prematurity grade III and IV [RR 3.80 (95% CI 1.12, 12.93); RD 0.11 (95% CI 0.02, 0.20), NNH 9 (95% CI 5, 50] compared to the indomethacin group. There was as expected a statistically significant decrease in failure of ductal closure rate in the surgical group as compared to the indomethacin group: [RR 0.04 (95% CI 0.01, 0.27); RD -0.32 (95% CI -0.43, -0.21), buy ponstel NNT 3 (95% CI 2, 4)].

The development of the catheter-tip microtransducer has made accurate, error- and artifact-free intrauterine pressure recording a reality. This information has made assessment of uterine effects of drug therapy feasible. The combination of this type of information with the use of mathematical processing of data has finally made truly objective buy ponstel assessment attainable. A description of the current technique and the findings made possible by its use are presented.

1. The contractile effects of tea polyphenols (TP) and its four principle catechins, namely (-)-epicatechin (EC), (-)-epicatechin-3-gallate (ECG), (-)-epigallocatechin (EGC) and (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), on rat aorta contractility were investigated using the isometric tension recording technique. 2. At concentrations of 5-100 mg/L, TP evoked phasic contraction of rat aorta in a concentration-dependent but endothelium-independent manner. Of the four catechins tested, EGCG and EGC (3-300 micromol/L), but not EC and ECG, mimicked the contractile response to TP, suggesting that the epigallol moiety in the B ring may be associated with the contractile effect. 3. Contractions in response to EGCG and EGC were not affected by several endogenous vasoconstrictor receptor antagonists, but could be abolished by 10 micro mol/L BAPTA-AM, a membrane-permeable Ca2+ chelator, or attenuated by removal of extracellular Ca2+, suggesting the involvement of both intracellular and extracellular Ca2+ in evoking the contraction. 4. Pretreatment with non-selective Ca2+ channel antagonists mefenamic acid (10 micro mol/L), tetrandrine (30 micro mol/L) and SKF 96365 (30 micromol/L), but not nifedipine (1 micromol/L), the selective inhibitor of voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels, inhibited the contractile responses to EGC and EGCG, indicating the involvement of Ca2+ influx via non-voltage dependent Ca2+ channels. 5. Several intracellular Ca2+ channel modulators, including procaine (5 mmol/L), dantrolene (30 micromol/L) and 2-amino ethoxydiphenyl borate (50 micromol/L; an inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor inhibitor), also inhibited EGCG- and EGC-induced contractions, thus suggesting a role of intracellular Ca2+ release in these contractions. 6. Both EGCG- and EGC-induced contractions were depressed, to different degrees, by inhibitors of several receptor-coupled enzymes buy ponstel , including phospholipase C, protein kinase C, phospholipase A2 and tyrosine kinase. Furthermore, both EGCG- and EGC-induced contractions were completely abolished by catalase, but not by superoxide dismutase or mannitol/dimethyl sulphoxide. 7. Taken together, these data show, for the first time, that TP and its related catechins that contain an epigallol structure in the B ring, as in EGCG and EGC, exert direct contractile effects on rat aortic smooth muscle via a H2O2-mediated pathway.

The release of hormones from thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG) and corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG) is regulated by movement of the reactive center loop in and out of the β-sheet A of the molecule. To investigate how these changes are transmitted to the hormone-binding site, we developed a sensitive assay using a synthesized thyroxine fluorophore and solved the crystal structures of reactive loop cleaved TBG together with its complexes with thyroxine, the thyroxine fluorophores, furosemide, and mefenamic acid. Cleavage of the reactive loop results in its complete insertion into the β-sheet A and a substantial but incomplete decrease in binding affinity in both TBG and CBG. We show here that the direct interaction between residue Thr(342) of the reactive loop and Tyr(241) of the hormone buy ponstel binding site contributes to thyroxine binding and release following reactive loop insertion. However, a much larger effect occurs allosterically due to stretching of the connecting loop to the top of the D helix (hD), as confirmed in TBG with shortening of the loop by three residues, making it insensitive to the S-to-R transition. The transmission of the changes in the hD loop to the binding pocket is seen to involve coherent movements in the s2/3B loop linked to the hD loop by Lys(243), which is, in turn, linked to the s4/5B loop, flanking the thyroxine-binding site, by Arg(378). Overall, the coordinated movements of the reactive loop, hD, and the hormone binding site allow the allosteric regulation of hormone release, as with the modulation demonstrated here in response to changes in temperature.

We have evaluated the potential of urinary uronic acid measurement as an early indicator in the development of renal papillary necrosis (RPN). Urinary uronic acid was quantified with a range of other urinary biochemical parameters in rats given multiple doses of N-phenylanthranilic acid (NPAA) or mefenamic acid (MFA), each of which induces a dose-related papillary necrosis. In addition, histological examination was also carried out to confirm the development and presence of RPN. NPAA was administered to male wistar rats at p.o. doses of 100, 250, and 500 mg/kg and MFA at p.o. doses of 75, 150, and 300 mg/kg on days 1-4 and 8-11, and urine samples were collected for 16 hours each day. NPAA increased uronic acid excretion two-fold for both medium and high doses from day four. MFA increased uronic acid excretion to two and a half-fold by day 10 in the highest dose administered. Urinary creatinine was equally elevated in a dose-related manner following treatment with either NPAA or MFA. None of the other routine markers (urinary or serum) of nephrotoxicity showed any statistical changes. NPAA produced a dose- and time-related increase in excretion of uronic acid. Evidence of widespread papillary necrosis was seen histologically at the high doses of NPAA or MFA. The significant elevation of uronic acid in urine following treatment with either NPAA or MFA was well ahead of the development of RPN detectable by routine histology, suggesting that uronic acid measurement could serve as an early indicator of RPN. The assessment of urinary uronic acid may therefore provide a novel sensitive and selective marker of identifying the lesion earlier than is currently possible. An increase in urinary uronic acid following NPAA and MFA treatment supports the biochemical Glucotrol 50 Mg basis of these changes as a representative of acid mucopolysaccharides accumulation.

During an investigation of the in vitro glucuronidation of benoxaprofen by human liver S-9 fraction, an unusual drug-related entity possessing a protonated molecular ion that was 74 mass units greater than the parent drug was observed. It was identified as the glycerol ester of benoxaprofen. Formation of this entity required inclusion of uridine diphosphoglucuronic acid (UDPGA) in the incubation, suggesting the formation of benoxaprofen acyl glucuronide followed by transesterification with the glycerol present in the incubation due to its presence as a stabilizer for liver subcellular fractions. Formation occurred during the sample work-up procedure while the samples were subjected to evaporation in vacuo, which does not remove glycerol. Conversion of purified Cymbalta Online Coupon benoxaprofen acyl glucuronide to the glycerol ester was demonstrated in glycerol at 37 degrees C. Other drugs that are converted to acyl glucuronides in vitro (diclofenac, mefenamic acid, tolmetin, and naproxen) were also shown to form corresponding glycerol esters when incubated with human liver S-9 fraction and UDPGA. The potential formation of glycerol esters of carboxylic acid drugs undergoing acyl glucuronidation in vitro represents an experimental artifact to which drug metabolism scientists should be aware.

A single-blind non-crossover method for assessing the potential effectiveness of antirheumatic drugs has been described. The method employs entirely subjective indices and incorporates a daily pain chart for measuring the pain response over the duration of the trial. In addition, the mean number of days withdrawn and patients' satisfaction rating are measured. The statistical method can correct for initial imbalances between groups and allows for the valid comparison of drugs from separate trials. Ten antirheumatic medications were evaluated using this technique in 684 patients with rheumatoid arthritis, and the results are in agreement with those of previous studies using standard clinical methods. The new method is simple, rapid in performance, economical in terms of Naprosyn Pain Medication cost and time, and has been shown to be sensitive and reproducible. The results indicate that there are no significant differences in efficacy between the currently available non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory analgesic drugs, in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.

Incomplete removal of pharmaceuticals during wastewater treatment can result in their discharge into the aquatic environment. The discharge of pharmaceuticals in wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) effluents into rivers, lakes and the oceans has led to detectable concentrations of pharmaceuticals in the aquatic environment in many countries. However, to date studies of WWTP discharges into the aquatic environment have largely been confined to areas of relatively high population density, industrial activity or systems impacted on by such areas. In this work, two sites in the far north of Scotland were used to assess whether, and which, pharmaceuticals were being introduced into natural waters in a rural environment with low population density. Samples from two WWTPs (with differing modes of operation), and one receiving water, the River Thurso, were analysed for the presence of 12 pharmaceuticals (diclofenac, clofibric acid, erythromycin, ibuprofen, mefenamic acid, paracetamol, propranolol, sulfamethoxazole, tamoxifen, trimethoprim and dextropropoxyphene). Ten of the 12 pharmaceuticals investigated were detected in at least one of the 40 WWTP effluent samples. Maximum concentrations ranged from 7 ng L(-1) (sulfamethoxazole) to 22.8 μg L(-1) (paracetamol) with diclofenac and mefenamic acid being present in all of samples analysed at concentrations between 24.2 and 927 ng L(-1) and 11.5 and 22.8 μg L(-1), respectively. Additionally, the presence of four pharmaceuticals at ng L(-1) levels in the River Thurso, into which one of the WWTPs discharges, shows that such discharges result in measurable levels of pharmaceuticals in the environment. This provides direct evidence that, even in rural areas with low population densities, effluents from WWTPs can produce quantifiable levels of human pharmaceutical in the natural aquatic environment. These observations Lipitor Online indicate that human pharmaceuticals may be considered as contaminants, with potential to influence water quality, management and conservation not only in urban and industrial regions but also those more rural in nature.

We compared the effects exerted by two classes of Cl(-) transport inhibitors on a Cl(-)-selective, passive anion transport route across the skin of Bufo viridis, the conductance (G(Cl)) of which can be activated by transepithelial voltage perturbation or high cAMP at short circuit. Inhibitors of antiporters (erythrosine, eosin) or cotransporters (furosemide) reduced voltage-activated G(Cl) with IC(50) of 6 +/- 1, 54 +/- 12, and 607 +/- 125 microM, respectively; they had no effect on the cAMP-induced G(Cl). The voltage for half-maximal activation of G(Cl) (V(50)) increased compared with controls, but effects on the maximal G(Cl) at more positive clamp potentials were small. Cl(-) channel blockers from the diphenylamino-2-carboxylic acid (DPC) family [dichloro-DPC, niflumic acid, flufenamic acid, and 5-nitro-2-(3-phenylpropylamino)benzoic acid] reduced the voltage-activated G(Cl) with IC(50) of 8.3 +/- 1.2, 10.5 +/- 0.6, 16.5 +/- 3.4, and 36.5 +/- 11.4 microM, respectively, and also inhibited the cAMP-induced G(Cl), albeit with slightly larger IC(50). V(50) was not significantly changed compared with controls; the maximal G(Cl) was strongly reduced. We conclude that the pathway for Cl(-) is composed of the conductive pore proper, which is blocked by the derivatives of DPC, and a separate, voltage-sensitive regulator, which is influenced by blockers of cotransporters or antiporters. This influence is partly overcome by increasing the clamp potential and removed by high concentrations of cAMP, which renders the pathway insensitive to voltage.
