Self-rated sedation and plasma concentrations of desmethyldiazepam following single doses of clorazepate

D J GreenblattA Georgotas


Plasma concentrations of desmethyldiazepam (DMDZ) and intensity of self-rated sedation (SRS) were measured at multiple points in time during 6 h after a single 15 mg oral dose of clorazepate dipotassium. Mean plasma DMDZ levels and mean SRS scores both became maximal at 1.0--2.5 h after drug dosage. By 6 h, however, mean SRS had returned to the predrug baseline score while mean DMDZ concentration fell only slighty from the maximum value. Disappearance of SRS despite persistence of high DMDZ levels might be due to adaptation or tolerance. If this is the case, subjective effects of benzodiazepines may depend upon duration of drug exposure as well as dose and concentration.

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.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.
