Single oral doses of 14C-dexloxiglumide were rapidly and extensively absorbed in rats, and eliminated more slowly by females than by males. The respective half-lives were about 4.9 and 2.1 h. Following single intravenous doses, dexloxiglumide was characterised as a drug having a low clearance (6.01 and about 1.96 ml/min/kg in males and females respectively), a moderate volume of distribution (Vss, 0.98 and about 1.1 L/kg in males and females respectively) and a high systemic availability. It was extensively bound to plasma proteins (97%). Dexloxiglumide is mainly cleared by the liver. Its renal clearance was minor. In only the liver and gastrointestinal tract, were concentrations of 14C generally greater than those in plasma. Peak 14C concentrations generally occurred at 1-2 h in males and at 2-4 h in females. Tissue 14C concentrations then declined by severalfold during 24 h although still present in most tissues at 24 h but only in a few tissues (such as the liver and gastrointestinal tract) at 168 h. Decline of 14C was less rapid in the tissues of females than in those of males. Single intravenous or oral doses were mainly excreted in the faeces (87-92%), mostly during 24 h and more slowly from females than from males. Urine...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Incretins are metabolic hormones that stimulate a decrease in glucose levels in the blood and they have been implicated in glycemic regulation in the remission phase of type 1 diabetes. Here is the latest research.

Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks

The circadian clock plays an important role in regulating transcriptional dynamics through changes in chromatin folding and remodelling. Discover the latest research on Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks here.

Long COVID-19

“Long Covid-19” describes illness in patients who are reporting long-lasting effects of the SARS-CoV-19 infection, often long after they have recovered from acute Covid-19. Ongoing health issues often reported include low exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties, chronic tiredness, and mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. This feed follows the latest research into Long Covid.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.
