L-NMMA Dose-response Study in Healthy Subjects

The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of different levels of nitric oxide inhibition on blood pressure and arterial stiffness in healthy subjects. L-NMMA, an inhibitor of ...

Pathophysiology of Cardiometabolic Risk Factors in African Americans

The overall goal of this proposal is to determine the autonomic and nitric oxide contribution in the pathogenesis of hypertension and insulin resistance in obese African American women. Fo...

Phase 1 Study of L-NMMA in Patients With Liver Cirrhosis

Phase 1 study of the effects of nitric oxide inhibition with L-NMMA in patients with liver cirrhosis and healthy controls. It is hypothesized that nitric oxide availability is increased in...

Effects of Acute L-NMMA Treatment on Renal Hemodynamics and Vasoactive Hormones in Patients With Congestive Heart Failure

The study tests the hypothesis that nitric oxide availability is changed in congestive heart failure with regard to the regulation of renal hemodynamics, renal sodium excretion and release...

Joint Status in Subjects With Severe Hemophilia A in Relation to Different Treatment Regimens

The joint status (knees, ankles) of patients suffering from severe Hemophilia A (too little blood clotting factor VIII in blood) is evaluated in a single magnetic resonance imaging session...

Drug-drug interaction between clobazam and cannabidiol in children with refractory epilepsy.

Under an expanded access investigational new drug (IND) trial, cannabidiol (CBD) is being studied as a possible adjuvant treatment of refractory epilepsy in children. Of the 25 subjects in the trial, ...

Co-Prescription Trends in a Large Cohort of Subjects Predict Substantial Drug-Drug Interactions.

Pharmaceutical prescribing and drug-drug interaction data underlie recommendations on drug combinations that should be avoided or closely monitored by prescribers. Because the number of patients takin...

The influence of plasma albumin concentration on the analysis methodology of free valproic acid by ultrafiltration and its application to therapeutic drug monitoring.

Free drug analysis is increasingly becoming popular in therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM). Centrifugal ultrafiltration (CF-UF) is the primary method to separate free from that of drug. However, the vol...

Uncovering the role of the nucleus accumbens in schizophrenia: A postmortem analysis of tyrosine hydroxylase and vesicular glutamate transporters.

The nucleus accumbens (NAcc) is often implicated in schizophrenia (SZ) pathology, but with little evidence to support its role. This study examined postmortem human tissue to determine if abnormalitie...

Medication Nonadherence, "Professional Subjects," and Apparent Placebo Responders: Overlapping Challenges for Medications Development.

Nonadherence is a major problem in clinical trials of new medications. To evaluate the extent of nonadherence, this study evaluated pharmacokinetic sampling from 1765 subjects receiving active therapy...

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.
