The Actin-Sequestering Protein Thymosin Beta-4 Is a Novel Target of Hypoxia-Inducible Nitric Oxide and HIF-1α Regulation.

The actin-sequestering protein thymosin beta-4 (Tβ4) is involved in various cellular and physiological processes such as proliferation, motility, growth and metastasis. Nitric oxide (NO) promotes tum...

Assessment of pharmacokinetic drug-drug interaction between pradigastat and acetaminophen in healthy subjects.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of pradigastat, a diacylglycerol acyltransferase-1 inhibitor, on the pharmacokinetics of acetaminophen, a gastric emptying marker.

Effect of CAR polymorphism on the pharmacokinetics of artemisinin in healthy Chinese subjects.

Repeated pretreatment with the antimalarial drug artemisinin (QHS) could lead to reduced exposure to the parent drug, which is mainly mediated by auto-induction of CYP2B6 activity. CYP2B6 is most sens...

Impact of corneal cross-linking on topical drug penetration in humans.

To analyse the influence of corneal cross-linking (CXL) with ultraviolet-A (UV-A) and riboflavin on drug permeability in human subjects.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Books intended for use in the study of specific subjects, containing systematic presentation of the principles and essential knowledge of the subjects.

A method of studying a drug or procedure in which both the subjects and investigators are kept unaware of who is actually getting which specific treatment.

A type of analysis in which subjects in a study group and a comparison group are made comparable with respect to extraneous factors by individually pairing study subjects with the comparison group subjects (e.g., age-matched controls).

Studies in which a number of subjects are selected from all subjects in a defined population. Conclusions based on sample results may be attributed only to the population sampled.

Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.
