The effects of some sweetening agents and osmotic pressure on the intestinal absorption of sulfafurazole in the rat

The Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology

The effects of some sugars and osmotic pressure have been examined on the absorption of sulfafurazole in the rat. Statistically significant correlations were found among the hypertonic solutions between the reciprocal of osmotic pressure and AUC0--infinity or Cmax. In addition, negative correlation existed between plasma concentrations at 15 min and osmotic pressure. No significant correlations were noted among the hypotonic solutions. More attention should be paid to the osmotic pressure of formulations. The osmotic pressure of hypertonic solutions, especially, might affect absorption of drug from its dosage form.

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.

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.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.
