A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of magnesium in the diet, characterized by anorexia, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and weakness. Symptoms are paresthesias, muscle cramps, irritability, decreased attention span, and mental confusion, possibly requiring months to appear. Deficiency of body magnesium can exist even when serum values are normal. In addition, magnesium deficiency may be organ-selective, since certain tissues become deficient before others.

A mosquito-borne encephalitis caused by the Japanese B encephalitis virus (ENCEPHALITIS VIRUS, JAPANESE) occurring throughout Eastern Asia and Australia. The majority of infections occur in children and are subclinical or have features limited to transient fever and gastrointestinal symptoms. Inflammation of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges may occur and lead to transient or permanent neurologic deficits (including a POLIOMYELITIS-like presentation); SEIZURES; COMA; and death. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p751; Lancet 1998 Apr 11;351(9109):1094-7)
Encephalitis Virus, Japanese
Japanese Encephalitis Vaccines
A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.
Physician Incentive Plans
A scheme which provides reimbursement for the health services rendered, generally by an institution, and which provides added financial rewards if certain conditions are met. Such a scheme is intended to promote and reward increased efficiency and cost containment, with better care, or at least without adverse effect on the quality of the care rendered.
Managed Care Programs
Health insurance plans intended to reduce unnecessary health care costs through a variety of mechanisms, including: economic incentives for physicians and patients to select less costly forms of care; programs for reviewing the medical necessity of specific services; increased beneficiary cost sharing; controls on inpatient admissions and lengths of stay; the establishment of cost-sharing incentives for outpatient surgery; selective contracting with health care providers; and the intensive management of high-cost health care cases. The programs may be provided in a variety of settings, such as HEALTH MAINTENANCE ORGANIZATIONS and PREFERRED PROVIDER ORGANIZATIONS.
Determination of (+)- and (-)-bromoisovalerylurea in sera of overdosed subjects. (1/10)Bromoisovalerylurea (bromisovalum) is a sedative-hypnotic given orally as a racemic mixture of optical isomers (i.e., (+)- and (-)-enantiomer) and frequently taken in overdose in order to commit suicide. Sera from 16 overdosed subjects were analyzed for each enantiomer by high-performance liquid chromatography on chiral stationary phases. The (+)-enantiomer concentration was lower than the (-)-enantiomer concentration in all specimens, that is, the ratio of the (+)-enantiomer to the total concentration ranged from about 50% to 0%. The ratio of the (+)-enantiomer was continuously decreasing in each subject. The data indicate that the drug in gastrointestinal tract was absorbed into blood nonstereoselectively and that the drug in blood was eliminated stereoselectively. The enantioselective determination of this drug will give useful information on absorption and elimination. (+info)
Relationship between glutathione content in liver and glutathione conjugation rate in the rat in vivo. Effect of buthionine sulphoximine pretreatment on conjugation of the two 2-bromoisovalerylurea enantiomers during intravenous infusion. (2/10)The relationship between hepatic glutathione content and hepatic glutathione conjugation rate in the rat in vivo was investigated. As substrate for glutathione conjugation, racemic (R,S)-2-bromoisovalerylurea (BIU) was used which gives rise to the biliary excretion of two diastereoisomeric glutathione conjugates and the urinary excretion of two diastereoisomeric mercapturates. The excretion rate of the glutathione conjugate in bile reflects hepatic conjugation exclusively. An intravenous infusion of BIU was given and the excretion rates of the metabolites in bile and urine were determined. The glutathione concentration in the liver was followed by taking biopsies every hour. Glutathione was depleted by the infused substrate; in rats that were pretreated with the inhibitor of glutathione biosynthesis, buthionine sulphoximine (BSO), the depletion of the glutathione content was more rapid. The rate of excretion of the glutathione conjugate in bile was plotted against hepatic glutathione content. These results indicate that the 'organ Km' for glutathione in the liver is approximately 0.5 mumol/g of liver, so that the hepatic glutathione conjugation rate is decreased only at severe glutathione depletion.

Method for screening and quantitative determination of serum levels of salicylic Acid, acetaminophen, theophylline, phenobarbital, bromvalerylurea, pentobarbital, and amobarbital using liquid chromatography/electrospray mass spectrometry. (3/10)We investigated a method for the simultaneous screening, identification, and quantitative determination of salicylic acid, acetaminophen, theophylline, barbiturates, and bromvalerylurea, drugs that frequently cause acute poisoning in Japan and therefore require rapid analysis for effective treatment in the clinical setting. The method employs liquid chromatography/electrospray mass spectrometry (LC/MS) of solid-phase extracted serum samples. For LC/MS ionization, the electrospray-ionization method was used, with acetaminophen in the positive-ion mode, and salicylic acid, theophylline, phenobarbital, bromvalerylurea, pentobarbital, amobarbital, and o-acetamidophenol (internal standard) in the negative-ion mode, the base ions were used in each case for quantitative analysis. Quantitation was possible for the following sample concentration ranges: salicylic acid and acetaminophen, 100 to 5 microg/ml; theophylline, 100 to 0.5 microg/ml; and phenobarbital, bromvalerylurea, pentobarbital, and amobarbital, 100 to 1 microg/ml. Using full-scan mass spectrometry, the lower detection limits of 1 microg/ml for salicylic acid and acetaminophen, 0.1 microg/ml for theophylline, and 0.5 microg/ml for phenobarbital, bromvalerylurea, pentobarbital, and amobarbital were adequate for identifying acute poisoning. When each compound was added to serum to a final concentration of 5 microg/ml and solid-phase extraction was performed using Oasis HLB 1-cc (30-mg), the mean recovery rate of each compound was 89.2 to 96.1% (n=5), and the coefficients of variation of the intraday and interday assays were 3.55 to 6.05% (n=5) and 3.68 to 6.38% (n=5), respectively, which are acceptable. When this method of analysis was applied in testing the sera of a female patient who had consumed a large amount of an unknown commercial drug, salicylic acid and bromvalerylurea were identified, and the treatment strategy could be determined in accordance with the serum concentration of those drugs.

Stereoselectivity in the urinary excretion of the mercapturates of (R-) and (S-) alpha-bromoisovalerylurea in man. (4/10)1. alpha-Bromoisovalerylurea (BIU) is a racemic drug that is metabolized by glutathione conjugation. The urinary excretion of the separate diastereomeric mercapturates formed from (S)- and (R)-BIU in healthy young human volunteers was investigated. 2. A pronounced stereoselectivity was observed: the mercapturate formed from R-BIU was excreted with a t1/2 of 1.5 +/- 0.4 h, while that from S-BIU showed a t1/2 of 3.1 +/- 1.3 h. Moreover, 22.5 +/- 4.3 and 5.7 +/- 1.6% of the dose, respectively, was excreted as each mercapturate diastereomer in 24 h. 3. This is the first example of stereoselectivity in the elimination of a substrate for glutathione conjugation in man. (+info)
Stereoselectivity of rat liver glutathione transferase isoenzymes for alpha-bromoisovaleric acid and alpha-bromoisovalerylurea enantiomers. (5/10)The stereoselectivity of purified rat GSH transferases towards alpha-bromoisovaleric acid (BI) and its amide derivative alpha-bromoisovalerylurea (BIU) was investigated. GSH transferase 2-2 was the only enzyme to catalyse the conjugation of BI and was selective for the (S)-enantiomer. The conjugation of (R)- and (S)-BIU was catalysed by the isoenzymes 2-2, 3-3 and 4-4. Transferase 1-1 was less active, and no catalytic activity was observed with transferase 7-7. Isoenzymes 1-1 and 2-2 of the Alpha multigene family preferentially catalysed the conjugation of the (S)-enantiomer of BIU (and BI), whereas isoenzymes 3-3 and 4-4 of the Mu multigene family preferred (R)-BIU. The opposite stereoselectivity of conjugation of BI and BIU previously observed in isolated rat hepatocytes and the summation of activities of enzymes known to be present in hepatocytes on the basis of present data are in accord.

Cerebellar atrophy due to chronic bromisovalum abuse demonstrated by computed tomography. (6/10)Two patients with a severe cerebellar syndrome due to chronic bromisovalum usage are described. In both patients CT scan revealed severe cerebellar atrophy. The value of computed tomography in detecting irreversible cerebellar lesions due to bromisovalum is discussed. (+info)
Cerebellar ataxia and peripheral neuropathy due to chronic bromvalerylurea poisoning. (7/10)A patient with chronic bromvalerylurea poisoning showed cerebellar ataxia and peripheral neuropathy. The patient was a 42-year-old Japanese man who developed consciousness disturbance, diplopia, slurred speech, ataxia and gait disturbance after having taken bromvalerylurea for ten years. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed atrophy of the cerebellum and pontine tegmentum. An electrophysiological study revealed decreased motor nerve conduction velocity and amplitude of compound muscle action potentials of the right tibial nerve. Histological findings of the left sural nerve indicated a slightly decreased large myelinated fiber diameter, which suggested chronic axonal damage. (+info)
Chronic bromvalerylurea intoxication: dystonic posture and cerebellar ataxia due to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug abuse. (8/10)Nalon-Ace and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID) containing bromvalerylurea (BVU) are sold as over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and are obtainable without prescription in Japan. A 32-year-old woman was diagnosed as having chronic BVU intoxication due to habitual use of Nalon-Ace. In addition to cerebellar ataxia and pyramidal signs well known in this condition, she showed an as yet non-described dystonic posture of the neck. Laboratory tests revealed an elevated concentration of serum organic bromide, iron deficiency anemia, and hyperchloremia. Brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed definite cerebellar atrophy. We should consider the possibility of chronic BVU intoxication in peculiar neurological cases like ours. (+info)

Predictive in vitro methods to investigate drug metabolism in the human intestine using intact tissue are of high importance. Therefore, we studied the metabolic activity of human small intestinal and colon slices and compared it with the metabolic activity of the same human intestinal segments using the Ussing chamber technique. The metabolic activity was evaluated using substrates to both phase I and phase II reactions: testosterone, 7-hydroxycoumarin (7HC), and a mixture of cytochrome P450 (P450) substrates (midazolam, diclofenac, coumarin, and bufuralol). In slices of human proximal jejunum, the metabolic activity of several P450-mediated and conjugation reactions remained constant up to4hof incubation. In the colon slices, conjugation rates were virtually equal to those in small intestine, whereas P450-mediated conversions occurred much slower. In both organs, morphological evaluation and ATP content implied tissue integrity within this period. P450 conversions using the Ussing chamber ...

The species differences in the bioactivation of FBM are significant and could contribute to an explanation of selective toxicity in humans as compared with rats. The major metabolites of FBM in rats are p-hydroxyfelbamate (37%) and 2-hydroxyfelbamate (25%), (Kucharczyk, 1995) (Fig. 1). A significant portion of the parent drug is also excreted as unchanged drug (32%), (Kucharczyk, 1995). The major metabolites of FBM in humans are MCF-glucuronide (11%), CPPA (13%), and atropaldehyde excreted as mercapturates (6%). As in rats, a significant amount of the FBM is excreted as unchanged drug (47%), (Kucharczyk, 1995). Given the hypothesis that atropaldehyde is the toxic metabolite in FBM bioactivation, a decrease in its production should protect from FBM toxicity.. Our data (Fig. 1) indicate that rats demonstrate a protective metabolism of FBM generating less atropaldehyde (1%). The minor formation of atropaldehyde in rats results from a number of factors including: 1) significant contribution from ...

Ethylene oxide (EHC 55, 1985)
When a single dose of 2 mg labelled ethylene oxide in propanediol/kg body weight was applied intraperitoneally to rats, 43% of the administered radioactivity was excreted in the urine within 50 h (41% within 24 h) of exposure, 9% as S-(2- hydroxyethyl)cysteine and 33% as N-acetyl- S-(2-hydroxyethyl) cysteine, both products of glutathione conjugation. Via the lungs, 1.5% was excreted as carbon dioxide and 1% as unmetabolized ethylene oxide (Jones & Wells, 1981). The involvement of glutathione-epoxide- S-transferase (EC 220.127.116.11) has not been investigated further. In vitro glutathione conjugation of the homologue propylene oxide was shown to proceed only in the presence of an enzyme (Fjellstedt et al., 1973). In rabbits, no effect was found on liver- and blood-glutathione levels, after 12 weeks of exposure to concentrations of ethylene oxide at 18, 90, or 450 mg/m3, for 5 days per week, 6 h per day (Yager & Benz, 1982).

AU - Li, Xiaotao. AU - OMalley, Bert W.. AU - Nawaz, Zafar. PY - 2004/10/1. Y1 - 2004/10/1. N2 - We investigated the role of the ubiquitin-conjugating enzyme UBCH7 in nuclear receptor transactivation. Using transient transfection assays, we demonstrated that UBCH7 modulates the transcriptional activity of progesterone receptor (PR) and glucocorticoid, androgen, and retinoic acid receptors in a hormone-dependent manner and that the ubiquitin conjugation activity of UBCH7 is required for its ability to potentiate transactivation by steroid hormone receptors (SHR). However, UBCH7 showed no significant effect on the transactivation functions of p53 and VP-16 activation domain. Depletion of endogenous UBCH7 protein by small interfering RNAs suggests that UBCH7 is required for the proper function of SHR. Furthermore, a ...

Successful Pallidal Stimulation in a Patient with KMT2B-Related Dystonia
A 28-year-old woman with generalized dystonia for years visited our outpatient clinic. She was born preterm at 9 months, and her development slowly decelerated after birth, resulting in microcephaly, short stature, cognitive decline, and dysarthria. However, she was able to uneventfully manage her daily activities and had a cleaning job at a welfare center. She had no family history of dystonia or other neurological disorders. She developed right laterocollis and right torticollis with a mobile portion at the age of 27, which then slowly spread to her trunk and bilateral arms (Supplementary Video 1 and 2 in the online-only Data Supplement). The dystonic postures rapidly exacerbated, severely affecting her walking and sitting. Although a sensory trick was noted, it was insufficient for recovery to the neutral position. She described some sleep benefits, but there was no definite fluctuation of the dystonia. The Burke-Fahn-Marsden Dystonia Rating Scale (BFMDRS) score was 30 of 120 on the dystonia ...

About the Department | Department of Chemistry | Bar-Ilan University
one of the first subjects to be taught at the inauguration of BIU in October 1955. Two major changes in recent years have propelled the department forward. Twelve new faculty members have been recruited in a variety of disciplines of chemistry. The department now possesses new capabilites in fields such as computational chemistry, structural biology, magnetic resonance, bio-inorganic chemistry, and nano-materials and devices, alongside the more established fields of medicinal chemistry, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry. No less important was the founding in 2007 of BINA, the Bar-Ilan Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials. This enterprise, with which 12 chemistry research groups are affiliated, is committed to advancing scientific achievements in the areas of nano-materials, nano-medicine, nano-Energy, nano-magnetism, nano-photonics, and nano-cleantech. In October 2009 six research groups moved into state-of-the-art laboratories in the Nanotechnology Triplex building. The ...
From a trans to cis olefin and oxidations « Naturalproductmans Blog
Kenji Watanabe and co-workers from the University of Shizuoka have reported in ACIE on an enzyme system (PsoE (glutathione S-transferase) and PsoF (flavin-containing monooxygenase)) that involves glutathione conjugation of a polyolefinic natural product (presynerazol) to form a glutathione adduct intermediate, which in turn is oxidized to the sulfoxide (by flavin hydroperoxide) and eliminates to form…

Benzoquinone ansamycin (BQA) Hsp90 inhibitors such as 17-DMAG and 17-AAG have off-target toxicities in clinical trials including hepatotoxicity. Mechanisms underlying the toxicity of quinones are a function of their ability to redox cycle and/or arylate cellular nucleophiles at the unsubstituted 19-position of the molecule. Therefore, we designed 19-substituted BQAs to prevent glutathione conjugation and non-specific interactions with protein thiols as an approach to reduce the hepatotoxicity and minimize off-target effects of the BQA class of Hsp90 inhibitors. In this study, the results showed that 19-substituted BQAs did not react with glutathione at the 19-position, while marked reactivity was observed using parent BQAs. Importantly, while parent 17-DMAG induced cell death in primary and cultured mouse hepatocytes, 19-phenyl and 19-methyl 17-DMAG showed reduced toxicity, validating the overall approach. There was no significant difference between the redox cycling ability of either 19-phenyl ...

Amobarbital Addiction Centers Near Reddick Florida- Find Detox And Rehab Facilities | Rehab Near Me
Seizures can happen anytime and without warning, it is commonly taken as an oral medicine to prevent the disorder. However, the users may take the drug excessively which can lead to addiction.. When taking amobarbital it is important to take it in moderation because it can generates addiction. Users can easily develop dependency because it can relieve a large amount of pain. Once dependence and tolerance develops, users have a higher risk of drug overdose. Also, users may need to undergo a treatment program to safely withdraw from this drug.. Doctors do not prescribe this drug for lone-term use because of its potential for misuse. The United States law does not permit an individual sale of this drug. The law can punish those people who transfer their prescription to others who seek the drug.. ...

The extent of phase I and phase II reactions is affected by the choice of enzyme used to prepare rat hepatocytes - Strathprints
The preparation of hepatocytes using the two-stage perfusion technique usually involves the use of collagenase (CII) alone or in combination with dispase (C/D) or trypsin inhibitor (CA/TI) as digestion enzymes. The effect of CII, C/D and CA/TI on cell viability, yield, cytochrome P450 mediated oxidation of testosterone, glucuronidation and sulfation of 7-hydroxycoumarin, glutathione content, glutathione-S-transferase activity and glutathione-conjugation capacity of hepatocytes has been assessed. Cytochrome P450 mediated oxidation of testosterone was significantly (p , 0.05) decreased with CII isolated hepatocytes (81.7 +/- 3.3 nmol/10(6) cells, mean +/- S.E.M., n = 3), compared with those isolated using CA/TI (96.6 +/- 1.9 nmol/10(6) cells) or C/D (95.1 +/- 2.1 nmol/10(6) cells). In contrast, glutathione conjugation of the non-specific substrate 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene was significantly (p , 0.05) increased with CII isolated hepatocytes (56.9 +/- 5.9 nmol/10(6) cells, mean +/- S.E.M., n = ...
