Pharmacokinetics of a New Orally Disintegrating Tablet Formulation of Aripiprazole 15 mg Administered Without Water in Healthy Middle-Aged Korean Subjects.

The main objective of this study was to compare the pharmacokinetic properties and relative bioavailability of two 15-mg aripiprazole formulations (an orally disintegrating tablet [ODT] as the test dr...

Population Pharmacokinetics of Fixed Dose Combination of Ceftriaxone and Sulbactam in Healthy and Infected Subjects.

Increased antibacterial resistance (ABR) and limited drug discovery warrant optimized use of available antibiotics. One option is to rationally combine two antibiotics (fixed dose combination (FDC)) t...

Age-related changes in intra-ventricular kinetic energy: a physiological or pathological adaptation?

Ageing has important deleterious effects on the cardiovascular system. We sought to compare intra-ventricular kinetic energy (KE) in healthy subjects of varying ages to subjects with ventricular dysfu...

Paracetamol decreases steady-state exposure to lamotrigine by induction of glucuronidation in healthy subjects.

Patients receiving lamotrigine therapy frequently use paracetamol concomitantly. While one study suggests a possible, clinically relevant drug-drug interaction, practical recommendations of the concom...

Slow wave oscillations in awake healthy subjects - methodological and physiological considerations.

Detection of pathological slow wave oscillations (0.5-7 Hz) in awake subjects have gained increasing interest in clinical diagnostics. Their significance, however, is hampered by the occasional presen...

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.
