OS of tacrolimus prepared from tacrolimus powder is not licensed for children. A licensed GF for OS allows flexibility for body weight-based dose adjustments. This study aimed at exploring the efficacy of conversion from OS to the GF of tacrolimus in stable pediatric renal transplant recipients. Records of 25 pediatric renal transplant recipients aged under 18 years who were switched from an unlicensed tacrolimus OS to GF were reviewed. At day 0, 1 week, and 4-8 weeks post-conversion, there were no differences regarding daily tacrolimus dose (3...

Genital rejuvenation is applicable not only to women (vaginal rejuvenation) but also to men (scrotal rejuvenation). There is an increased awareness, reflected by the number of published medical papers, of vaginal rejuvenation; however, rejuvenation of the scrotum has not received similar attention in the medical literature. Scrotal rejuvenation includes treatment of hair-associated scrotal changes (alopecia and hypertrichosis), morphology-associated scrotal changes (wrinkling and laxity), and vascular-associated scrotal changes (angiokeratomas)...

DHIPC (2,4-dichloro-2´-hydroxyl-4´,6´-diisoprenyloxychalcone) is a new chalcone compound. In this study, its antidepressant-like activity of compound DHIPC was evaluated by the forced swimming test and the tail suspension test in mice. The results showed that DHIPC significantly reduced the immobility time for 2 h after treatment through the oral administration at dose of 10, 20, and 30 mg/kg in the forced swimming test and the tail suspension test, indicating a significant antidepressant-like effect. The maximal effect was obtained at 30 mg/kg, which is similar to the positive control fluoxetine...

Magnetic mesoporous silica microparticles were loaded with safranin O (S1) and with hydrocortisone (S2) and the outer surface functionalized with a bulky azo derivative bearing urea moieties. Aqueous suspensions of both solids at pH 7.4 showed negligible payload release whereas a marked delivery was observed in the presence of sodium dithionite due to the rupture of the azo bonds. Besides, a moderate cargo release was observed at acidic pH due to the hydrolysis of the urea bonds that linked the azo derivative onto the external surface of the inorganic scaffolds...

BACKGROUND: Modified herbal medicines implicate the combination of several therapeutic practices of native systems of medicine that may extend many earlier generations, which frequently afford valuable therapeutic benefits. PURPOSE: In this study, the role of nano-curcumin and aged garlic extract (AGE) as two modified phytomedicines on alleviating both of advanced glycation end products (AGEPs) and oxidative stress (OS) in streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rats were investigated during this study...

OBJECTIVES: To compare the effectiveness and tolerability of micafungin versus posaconazole during chemotherapy-induced neutropenia in acute leukemia (AL) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). METHODS: Patients with AL or MDS undergoing chemotherapy were randomized to open-label micafungin 100 mg intravenously daily or posaconazole suspension 400 mg orally twice daily until neutrophil recovery, up to 28 days. Patients were followed for 12 weeks. The primary endpoint was prophylaxis failure (premature discontinuation due to infection, intolerance, adverse event, or death)...

Purpose To prospectively compare small bowel distention provided by, as well as patient acceptance of, two different neutral (negative) oral contrast materials used for cross-sectional enterography in a pediatric population. Materials and Methods In this noninferiority study, 66 pediatric patients undergoing clinical computed tomographic (CT) or magnetic resonance (MR) enterography were randomized to receive either a flavored beverage for neutral abdominal and pelvic imaging (Breeza; Beekley Medical, Bristol, Conn) or a low-density barium sulfate suspension...

The purpose of this study was to investigate if AZD5329, a dual neurokinin NK1/2 receptor antagonist, is a suitable candidate for further development as an oral immediate release (IR) solid dosage form as a final product. The neutral form of AZD5329 has only been isolated as amorphous material. In order to search for a solid material with improved physical and chemical stability and more suitable solid-state properties, a salt screen was performed. Crystalline material of a maleic acid salt and a fumaric acid salt of AZD5329 were obtained...

Objective: To explore the effects of Zhibai Dihuang Decoction (ZDD) on mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase (COX) in the spermatogenic cells of rats with ureaplasma urealyticum (UU) infection. METHODS: From forty 4-5 months old SD rats, 30 were randomly selected for the establishment of the model of testicular UU infection by inoculating the bladder with UU suspension and the other 10 injected with normal saline as controls (group A). At 7 days after inoculation, the rat models of testicular UU infection were treated orally with normal saline (group B), ZDD at 1 g per kg of the body weight per day (group C), and azithromycin at 0...

Background: Acute respiratory infections (ARIs), caused by the high level of immaturity of the immune system, are a major cause of morbidity in preterm newborns. The probiotic Escherichia coli strain Nissle 1917 (EcN) is well known for its immuno-modulatory properties and may therefore enhance the immune competence. Thus, EcN administration may provide a promising possibility to decrease the risk of ARIs in this vulnerable group of children. However, clinical data supporting or refuting this hypothesis are, to our knowledge, not available...

Fast dissolving oral film is a stamp-style drug loaded polymer film with rapid disintegration and dissolution. This new kind of drug delivery system has harsh requirements on the taste-masking technology. Suspension intermediate and liposome intermediate were prepared respectively for the formulation of two kinds of fast dissolving oral films with aim of studying the effect of taste masking technology on bioavailability of oral films and loratadine was selected as the model drug. The surface pH of films was close to neutral without oral mucosal irritation or side effects...

PURPOSE: The stability of extemporaneously prepared cinacalcet suspensions over 90 days was evaluated. METHODS: Cinacalcet 5-mg/mL suspension was prepared by triturating 30-mg cinacalcet tablets. Twelve 30-mL batches were prepared with a 1:1 mixture of Ora-Plus and either Ora-Sweet or Ora-Sweet SF (sugar free). Three suspensions of each kind were stored at both room temperature and refrigerated conditions. A 1-mL sample was taken from each bottle at 0, 7, 18, 32, 64, and 90 days...

Nisoldipine (ND) has low oral bioavailability (5%) due to first-pass metabolism. Previously, solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) of ND were reported. In this study, nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) of ND are developed to enhance the oral bioavailability. ND-NLCs were prepared using hot homogenization-ultrasonication method, using oleic acid and trimyristate as liquid lipid and solid lipid, respectively. Prepared NLCs are evaluated for an optimal system using measuring size, zeta potential, entrapment efficiency, in-vitro release and in-situ absorption studies...

The piperazine derivatives correspond to an extensive chemical class of compounds with numerous neuropharmacological activities, including antidepressant (e.g., nefazodone, trazodone) and anxiolytic (e.g., buspirone) properties. Therefore, aiming to identify a new antidepressant and antianxiety lead-compound, our group designed, synthesized, and investigated the effects of a new piperazine compound, namely, LQFM104, on the behavior of mice. Male albino Swiss mice were treated with LQFM104 prior to predictive behavioral tests as open field (OFT), elevated plus maze (EPM), forced swimming (FST), and tail suspension tests (TST)...

Nevirapine (NVP) is a non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) widely used as a component of High Active Antiretroviral Therapy (HAART) since it is inexpensive, readily absorbed after oral administration and non-teratogenic. In the present work, the mechanism of a previously described pharmacokinetic interaction between NVP and the antidepressant drug nortriptyline (NT) was studied using rat hepatic microsomes. The obtained results showed a competitive inhibition of the NVP metabolism by NT...
