Many studies have been reported the efficacy of intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) as an antidote on acute lipophilic drug toxicity. Clozapine, highly lipophilic dibenzodiazepine neuroleptics, is an important medication in the schizophrenia therapy regimen. Acute intoxication with antipsychotics is one of the main reasons for the referral of poisoned patients to the hospital. We expected that ILE could be used for the therapy of acute clozapine intoxicated patients.

Local anesthetics can cause severe toxicity when absorbed systemically. Rapid intravenous administration of lipid emulsion (LE) is the standard of care for severe local anesthetic systemic toxicity wh...
Bupropion overdose in the pediatric setting poses significant potential for toxicity. We present the case of a 15-year-old female patient presenting with intentional bupropion overdose resulting in ge...
A 6-month-old puppy was treated for suspected cocaine toxicosis. Supportive care was initiated but clinical signs worsened and treatment with intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) was instituted. Clinical ...
Amlodipine overdose is common; however, the dose and timing of intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) therapy as a management strategy remain debatable.
Prolonged propofol infusion induces skeletal muscle damage. However, it is well known that the lipid emulsion that is the solvent of propofol causes various types of tissue damage via lipid peroxidati...
The aim of this study is to investigate whether intravenous lipid emulsion is effective in attenuating the clinical effects of a cardioactive drug, exemplified by the beta-blocking agent m...
In this randomized, double blind, unbalanced three way crossover trial, four lipid emulsions will be assessed on three study days. The lipid emulsions (LEs) have been engineered so that th...

The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of a multicomponent lipid emulsion containing 30% soybean oil, 30% medium-chain triglycerides, 25% olive oil, and 15% fish oil with a co...
The goal of this research study is to compare the levels of free fatty acids and free bilirubin between two intravenous lipid emulsion products in premature newborns.
A tricylic dibenzodiazepine, classified as an atypical antipsychotic agent. It binds several types of central nervous system receptors, and displays a unique pharmacological profile. Clozapine is a serotonin antagonist, with strong binding to 5-HT 2A/2C receptor subtype. It also displays strong affinity to several dopaminergic receptors, but shows only weak antagonism at the dopamine D2 receptor, a receptor commonly thought to modulate neuroleptic activity. Agranulocytosis is a major adverse effect associated with administration of this agent.
An outbred strain of rats developed in 1915 by crossing several Wistar Institute white females with a wild gray male. Inbred strains have been derived from this original outbred strain, including Long-Evans cinnamon rats (RATS, INBRED LEC) and Otsuka-Long-Evans-Tokushima Fatty rats (RATS, INBRED OLETF), which are models for Wilson's disease and non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, respectively.
Mutant strains of rats that produce little or no hair. Several different homozygous recessive mutations can cause hairlessness in rats including rnu/rnu (Rowett nude), fz/fz (fuzzy), shn/shn (shorn), and nznu/nznu (New Zealand nude). Note that while NUDE RATS are often hairless, they are most characteristically athymic.
Conditions characterized by abnormal lipid deposition due to disturbance in lipid metabolism, such as hereditary diseases involving lysosomal enzymes required for lipid breakdown. They are classified either by the enzyme defect or by the type of lipid involved.
A trypanosome found in the blood of adult rats and transmitted by the rat flea. It is generally non-pathogenic in adult rats but can cause lethal infection in suckling rats.
