Because of its extended half-life, cefovecin is a broad-spectrum cephalosporin antibiotic commonly used to treat dermatitis in dogs and cats. A single injection in dogs can yield an effective plasma concentration for as long as 14 d, depending on the strain of Staphylococcus and for as long as 7 d in cats for the treatment of Pasteurella multocida. In the laboratory animal setting, C57BL/6 mice are commonly affected with dermatologic conditions that make these animals unsuitable for experiments. Therefore, we performed this pharmacokinetic study to determine whether cefovecin would be of benefit in mice...

PURPOSE: Methadone is a potent analgesic used to treat refractory cancer pain. It is administered as a racemic mixture, with the l-enantiomer being primarily a μ-receptor agonist, whereas the d-enantiomer is an N-methyl-d-aspartate antagonist and inhibits serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake. Dose requirements vary greatly among patients to achieve optimal pain control and to avoid the risk of adverse effects. The relationship between plasma and saliva methadone enantiomer concentrations was investigated to determine if saliva could be a substitute for plasma in pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic studies for clinical monitoring and dose optimization of methadone in patients with advanced cancer...
