Common name for Ricinus communis, a species in the family EUPHORBIACEAE. It is the source of CASTOR OIL.
Eighteen carbon fatty acids that comprise the great majority of CASTOR OIL, which is from the seed of RICINUS.
A plant genus of the family EUPHORBIACEAE, order Euphorbiales, subclass Rosidae. The seed of Ricinus communis L. is the CASTOR BEAN which is the source of CASTOR OIL; RICIN; and other lectins.
Miscellaneous agents found useful in the symptomatic treatment of diarrhea. They have no effect on the agent(s) that cause diarrhea, but merely alleviate the condition.
One of the long-acting synthetic ANTIDIARRHEALS; it is not significantly absorbed from the gut, and has no effect on the adrenergic system or central nervous system, but may antagonize histamine and interfere with acetylcholine release locally.
An enzyme with high affinity for carbon dioxide. It catalyzes irreversibly the formation of oxaloacetate from phosphoenolpyruvate and carbon dioxide. This fixation of carbon dioxide in several bacteria and some plants is the first step in the biosynthesis of glucose. EC
A group of thermoplastic or thermosetting polymers containing polyisocyanate. They are used as ELASTOMERS, as coatings, as fibers and as foams.
Oils derived from plants or plant products.
Unctuous combustible substances that are liquid or easily liquefiable on warming, and are soluble in ether but insoluble in water. Such substances, depending on their origin, are classified as animal, mineral, or vegetable oils. Depending on their behavior on heating, they are volatile or fixed. (Dorland, 28th ed)
Oils which evaporate readily. The volatile oils occur in aromatic plants, to which they give odor and other characteristics. Most volatile oils consist of a mixture of two or more TERPENES or of a mixture of an eleoptene (the more volatile constituent of a volatile oil) with a stearopten (the more solid constituent). The synonym essential oils refers to the essence of a plant, as its perfume or scent, and not to its indispensability.
Synthetic or natural materials for the replacement of bones or bone tissue. They include hard tissue replacement polymers, natural coral, hydroxyapatite, beta-tricalcium phosphate, and various other biomaterials. The bone substitutes as inert materials can be incorporated into surrounding tissue or gradually replaced by original tissue.
Colloids formed by the combination of two immiscible liquids such as oil and water. Lipid-in-water emulsions are usually liquid, like milk or lotion. Water-in-lipid emulsions tend to be creams. The formation of emulsions may be aided by amphiphatic molecules that surround one component of the system to form MICELLES.
Passage of food (sometimes in the form of a test meal) through the gastrointestinal tract as measured in minutes or hours. The rate of passage through the intestine is an indicator of small bowel function.

Effects of castor oil on lipid metabolism in rats. (1/85)

Weanling rats were given diets contained castor oil (CAO-diet), coconut oil (CO-diet), or high-oleic safflower oil (HO-diet) each 10% (wt). No growth retardations were observed on the CAO-diets. The CAO-diet group showed significantly lower serum cholesterol and hepatic triacylglycerols than the HO-diet group. Ricinoleic acid was found at an extremely low level in perirenal adipose tissue.  (+info)

Antidiarrheal effects of zaldaride maleate after oral, intravenous and subcutaneous administration to rats. (2/85)

The antidiarrheal action of zaldaride maleate (ZAL) after oral, intravenous and subcutaneous administration was examined to determine whether ZAL acts systemically or locally in the intestine of rats. Oral administration of ZAL inhibited castor oil- and 16,16-dimethyl prostaglandin E2-induced diarrhea; however, intravenous or subcutaneous administration of ZAL was ineffective. When ZAL was orally administered, the area under the plasma concentration time curve of the compound was lower than that of ZAL following intravenous or subcutaneous administration at the maximum doses studied. The antidiarrheal effect of ZAL was not dependent on its plasma concentration level. These results suggest that ZAL acts locally in the intestinal tract in rats.  (+info)

Involvement of nitric oxide from nerves on diarrhea induced by castor oil in rats. (3/85)

Nitric oxide (NO) is involved in the mechanism of castor oil-induced diarrhea. This study was performed to elucidate the source of NO. Diarrhea was induced by oral administration of castor oil in rats. Diarrhea was significantly inhibited by the pre-treatment with a relatively selective nerve NO synthase inhibitor, 7-nitroindazole. This effect was attenuated by the treatment with L-arginine. Capsaicin-sensitive afferent nerve degeneration did not affect the diarrhea. N(G)-Nitro-L-arginine methylester significantly inhibited diarrhea even in capsaicin-pretreated rats. These data suggest, at least in part, the involvement of NO from nerves on the diarrhea induced by castor oil in rats.  (+info)

Substrate-dependent mutant complementation to select fatty acid desaturase variants for metabolic engineering of plant seed oils. (4/85)

We demonstrate that naturally occurring C(14) and C(16)-specific acyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) desaturases from plants can complement the unsaturated fatty acid (UFA) auxotrophy of an Escherichia coli fabA/fadR mutant. Under the same growth conditions, C(18)-specific delta(9)-stearoyl (18:0)-ACP desaturases are unable to complement the UFA auxotrophy. This difference most likely results from the presence of sufficient substrate pools of C(14) and C(16) acyl-ACPs but a relative lack of C(18) acyl-ACP pools in E. coli to support the activities of the plant fatty acid desaturase. Based on this, a substrate-dependent selection system was devised with the use of the E. coli UFA auxotroph to isolate mutants of the castor delta(9)-18:0-ACP desaturase that display enhanced specificity for C(14) and C(16) acyl-ACPs. Using this selection system, a number of desaturase variants with altered substrate specificities were isolated from pools of randomized mutants. These included several G188L mutant isolates, which displayed a 15-fold increase in specific activity with 16:0-ACP relative to the wild-type castor delta(9)-18:0-ACP desaturase. Expression of this mutant in Arabidopsis thaliana resulted in the accumulation of unusual monounsaturated fatty acids to amounts of >25% of the seed oil. The bacterial selection system described here thus provides a rapid means of isolating variant fatty acid desaturase activities for modification of seed oil composition.  (+info)

Nepadutant pharmacokinetics and dose-effect relationships as tachykinin NK2 receptor antagonist are altered by intestinal inflammation in rodent models. (5/85)

Tachykinin NK2 receptor antagonists could reduce motility and symptoms during gastrointestinal diseases characterized by local inflammation such as diarrhea or colitis; however, how these conditions change pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic characteristics of NK2 receptor antagonists is unknown. We investigated the effect of the peptide NK2 receptor antagonist nepadutant on spontaneous intestinal motility or [betaAla8]NKA(4-10)-induced colonic and bladder contractions in rodent models of intestinal inflammation (enteritis induced by castor oil and rectocolitis induced by local instillation of acetic acid in rats, enteritis induced by bacterial toxins in mice). In the castor oil model, the oral/intraduodenal bioavailability of nepadutant was also determined. The intrarectal (i.r.) administration of nepadutant (100 nmol/kg) did not reduce [betaAla8]NKA(4-10) (10 nmol/kg i.v.)-induced colonic and bladder contractions in normal animals, but the same dose of nepadutant produced an inhibitory effect in the two organs following rectocolitis; in contrast, nepadutant is equieffective by the intravenous route in normal and colitic animals. In this model, nepadutant (100 nmol/kg i.r. or i.v.) decreased spontaneous colonic hypermotility, without affecting motility in controls. The intraduodenal administration of nepadutant (30 nmol/kg), which was ineffective on [betaAla8]NKA(4-10) (10 nmol/kg i.v.)-induced colonic and bladder contractions in control animals, abolished bladder contractions in castor oil-pretreated animals. In this latter group, the oral and intraduodenal bioavailability of nepadutant showed a 7- to 9-fold increase with respect to controls. Oral administration of nepadutant, in nanomolar or subnanomolar dosage, reduced diarrhea induced by bacterial toxins in mice. It is concluded that intestinal inflammation increases nepadutant absorption in the intestine, enhancing its activity. These results suggest that a drug with a limited oral bioavailability could be used for treating gastrointestinal diseases associated with a local inflammation.  (+info)

Prostaglandin E2 and reactive oxygen metabolite damage in the cecum in a pony model of acute colitis. (6/85)

The objective of this project was to determine early tissue biochemical events associated with increased colonic secretion during the acute stage of castor-oil-induced colitis by measuring cecal mucosal and submucosal malondialdehyde (MDA) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), levels in ponies. Intestinal tissue (inflamed or healthy) samples were obtained from 4 age- and sex-matched Shetland ponies. Biochemical methods were used to determine MDA and PGE2 levels in intestinal tissue samples from inflamed and healthy equine intestine. Inflamed tissue MDA and PGE2 levels increased with time after castor oil challenge and correlated with granulocyte infiltration, as determined by myeloperoxidase levels in a companion study. Elevated intestinal tissue MDA levels suggest that lipid peroxidation could be attributed to reactive oxygen metabolites (ROM) released from stimulated, recruited, and resident granulocytes. Tissue levels of MDA and PGE2 suggest a role for granulocyte-derived mediators of intestinal inflammation in the massive secretory response in cases of acute equine colitis. Tissue MDA and PGE2 levels may be useful laboratory tools to quantify and characterize intestinal secretory inflammatory responses in acute inflammatory conditions in the equine colon.  (+info)

Phase I and pharmacokinetic study of ABI-007, a Cremophor-free, protein-stabilized, nanoparticle formulation of paclitaxel. (7/85)

PURPOSE: ABI-007 is a novel Cremophor-free, protein-stabilized, nanoparticle formulation of paclitaxel. The absence of Cremophor EL may permit ABI-007 to be administered without the premedications used routinely for the prevention of hypersensitivity reactions. Furthermore, this novel formulation permits a higher paclitaxel concentration in solution and, thus, a decreased infusion volume and time. This Phase I study examines the toxicity profile, maximum tolerated dose (MTD), and pharmacokinetics of ABI-007. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: ABI-007 was administered in the outpatient setting, as a 30-min infusion without premedications. Doses of ABI-007 ranged from 135 (level 0) to 375 mg/m2 (level 3). Sixteen patients participated in pharmacokinetic studies. RESULTS: Nineteen patients were treated. No acute hypersensitivity reactions were observed during the infusion period. Hematological toxicity was mild and not cumulative. Dose-limiting toxicity, which occurred in 3 of 6 patients treated at level 3 (375 mg/m2), consisted of sensory neuropathy (3 patients), stomatitis (2 patients), and superficial keratopathy (2 patients). The MTD was thus determined to be 300 mg/m2 (level 2). Pharmacokinetic analyses revealed paclitaxel C(max) and area under the curve(inf) values to increase linearly over the ABI-007 dose range of 135-300 mg/m2. C(max) and area under the curve(inf) values for individual patients correlated well with toxicity. CONCLUSIONS: ABI-007 offers several features of clinical interest, including rapid infusion rate, absence of requirement for premedication, and a high paclitaxel MTD. Our results provide support for Phase II trials to determine the antitumor activity of this drug.  (+info)

Laxative and anti-diarrheal activity of polycarbophil in mice and rats. (8/85)

We investigated the laxative and anti-diarrheal activity of polycarbophil, an insoluble hydrophilic polymer, in comparison with other agents used for treating functional bowel disorder (FBD). In naive rats, polycarbophil (500 mg/kg) increased fecal weight and water contents without producing diarrhea. Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) did not produce evident changes in bowel movement. Picosulfate markedly produced diarrhea. Loperamide, trimebutine and granisetron decreased stool output dose-dependently. Constipation, indicated by decrease in fecal weight, was produced by loperamide and clonidine in rats. Polycarbophil (500 mg/kg) and CMC increased fecal weight without diarrhea. Conversely trimebutine further decreased fecal weight in constipated rats. Polycarbophil (500 mg/kg) suppressed diarrhea induced by castor oil, and at 250-500 mg/kg, it produced shaped stools in animals with stools loosened by prostaglandin E2, serotonin or carbachol in mice. Polycarbophil (500 mg/kg) also reduced stools in rats with stool output increased by wrap restraint stress (WRS). CMC had no effect in the diarrhea models, except for carbachol-induced diarrhea, and WRS-induced evacuation. Loperamide, trimebutine and granisetron inhibited diarrhea production and WRS-induced evacuation, except for carbachol-induced diarrhea. The results show that polycarbophil prevents constipation and diarrhea without inducing diarrhea or constipation, which is different from the other agents. Hydrophilic polymers such as polycarbophil will be promising agents for the treatment of FBD.  (+info)

Castor oil is a colorless or pale yellow vegetable oil that is derived from the seeds of the castor bean plant (Ricinus communis). It has a wide range of uses, including as a laxative, a moisturizer in skin and hair products, and a component in industrial lubricants and biodiesel.

Medically, castor oil is often used as a stimulant laxative to relieve constipation. It works by increasing the movement of the intestines, which helps to promote bowel movements. Castor oil is typically taken orally, and its effects usually begin to be felt within 2-6 hours after ingestion.

It's important to note that castor oil should not be used in large amounts or for prolonged periods of time, as it can lead to electrolyte imbalances and other serious side effects. It is also not recommended for use during pregnancy, as it may stimulate uterine contractions. As with any medication or supplement, it's always best to consult with a healthcare provider before using castor oil.

A castor bean, also known as Ricinus communis, is a plant that produces seeds called castor beans. The seed of the castor bean contains ricin, a highly toxic protein that can cause serious illness or death if ingested, inhaled, or injected. Despite its toxicity, the oil from the castor bean, known as castor oil, is used in a variety of industrial and medicinal applications due to its unique chemical properties.

It's important to note that all parts of the castor bean plant are considered poisonous, but the seed is the most toxic. Handling or coming into contact with the plant or seeds can cause skin irritation and other adverse reactions in some people. It is recommended to handle the plant with care and keep it out of reach of children and pets.

Ricinoleic acid is not typically defined in the context of medical terminology, but it is a chemical compound with potential medical relevance. It is a fatty acid that is the main constituent of castor oil, which is obtained from the seeds of the Ricinus communis plant. Ricinoleic acid has been studied for its potential medicinal properties, including its anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and antibacterial effects. However, it is important to note that ricinoleic acid can also cause irritation and inflammation in high concentrations or with prolonged exposure. Therefore, medical definitions of this compound typically focus on its chemical structure and properties rather than its potential medicinal uses.

"Ricinus" is the botanical name for the castor oil plant. Its scientific name is "Ricinus communis." It is a species of flowering plant in the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. The castor oil that comes from this plant is used in various industries and as a traditional medicine, although the raw seed is toxic due to its ricin content.

Antidiarrheals are a class of medications that are used to treat diarrhea. They work by either slowing down the movement of the gut or increasing the absorption of water and electrolytes in the intestines, which helps to thicken the stool and reduce the frequency of bowel movements.

Some common examples of antidiarrheal medications include loperamide (Imodium), diphenoxylate/atropine (Lomotil), and bismuth subsalicylate (Pepto-Bismol). These medications can be effective in managing acute diarrhea, but it's important to use them only as directed and for a limited period of time. Prolonged use or overuse of antidiarrheals can lead to serious side effects, such as constipation, dehydration, and dependence.

It's also worth noting that while antidiarrheals can help manage the symptoms of diarrhea, they do not address the underlying cause of the condition. If you have chronic or severe diarrhea, it's important to speak with a healthcare provider to determine the root cause and develop an appropriate treatment plan.

Loperamide is an antidiarrheal medication that works by slowing down the movement of the intestines. This helps to increase the time between bowel movements and reduces the amount of liquid in stools, thereby helping to relieve diarrhea. It is available over-the-counter (OTC) and by prescription, depending on the strength and formulation.

Loperamide works by binding to opioid receptors in the gut, which helps to reduce the contractions of the intestines that can lead to diarrhea. It is important to note that loperamide should not be used for longer than 2 days without consulting a healthcare professional, as prolonged use can lead to serious side effects such as constipation, dizziness, and decreased alertness.

Loperamide is also known by its brand names, including Imodium, Pepto-Bismol Maximum Strength, and Kaopectate II. It is important to follow the instructions on the label carefully when taking loperamide, and to speak with a healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns about using this medication.

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEP-carboxylase or PEPC) is a biotin-dependent enzyme that plays a crucial role in the carbon fixation process of photosynthesis, specifically in the C4 and CAM (Crassulacean Acid Metabolism) plant pathways. It is also found in some bacteria and archaea.

PEP-carboxylase catalyzes the irreversible reaction between phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) and bicarbonate (HCO3-) to form oxaloacetate and inorganic phosphate (Pi). This reaction helps to initiate the carbon fixation process by incorporating atmospheric carbon dioxide into an organic molecule, which can then be used for various metabolic processes.

In C4 plants, PEP-carboxylase is primarily located in the mesophyll cells where it facilitates the initial fixation of CO2 onto PEP, forming oxaloacetate. This oxaloacetate is then reduced to malate, which is subsequently transported to bundle sheath cells for further metabolism and additional carbon fixation by another enzyme, ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RuBisCO).

In CAM plants, PEP-carboxylase operates at night to fix CO2 into malate, which is stored in vacuoles. During the day, malate is decarboxylated, releasing CO2 for RuBisCO-mediated carbon fixation while conserving water through reduced stomatal opening.

PEP-carboxylase is also found in some non-photosynthetic bacteria and archaea, where it contributes to various metabolic pathways such as gluconeogenesis, anaplerotic reactions, and the glyoxylate cycle.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Polyurethanes" are not a medical term. They are a type of polymer that is used in a variety of industrial and consumer products, including foam cushions, insulation, and packaging materials. Polyurethanes are created through a chemical reaction between diisocyanates and polyols. While they have many applications in the medical field, such as in the production of medical devices and equipment, they are not a medical term themselves.

Medical definitions generally do not include plant oils as a specific term. However, in a biological or biochemical context, plant oils, also known as vegetable oils, are defined as lipid extracts derived from various parts of plants such as seeds, fruits, and leaves. They mainly consist of triglycerides, which are esters of glycerol and three fatty acids. The composition of fatty acids can vary between different plant sources, leading to a range of physical and chemical properties that make plant oils useful for various applications in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food industries. Some common examples of plant oils include olive oil, coconut oil, sunflower oil, and jojoba oil.

In the context of medicine and pharmacology, oils are typically defined as lipid-based substances that are derived from plants or animals. They are made up of molecules called fatty acids, which can be either saturated or unsaturated. Oils are often used in medical treatments and therapies due to their ability to deliver active ingredients through the skin, as well as their moisturizing and soothing properties. Some oils, such as essential oils, are also used in aromatherapy for their potential therapeutic benefits. However, it's important to note that some oils can be toxic or irritating if ingested or applied to the skin in large amounts, so they should always be used with caution and under the guidance of a healthcare professional.

Volatile oils, also known as essential oils, are a type of organic compound that are naturally produced in plants. They are called "volatile" because they evaporate quickly at room temperature due to their high vapor pressure. These oils are composed of complex mixtures of various compounds, including terpenes, terpenoids, aldehydes, ketones, esters, and alcohols. They are responsible for the characteristic aroma and flavor of many plants and are often used in perfumes, flavors, and aromatherapy. In a medical context, volatile oils may have therapeutic properties and be used in certain medications or treatments, but it's important to note that they can also cause adverse reactions if not used properly.

Bone substitutes are materials that are used to replace missing or damaged bone in the body. They can be made from a variety of materials, including natural bone from other parts of the body or from animals, synthetic materials, or a combination of both. The goal of using bone substitutes is to provide structural support and promote the growth of new bone tissue.

Bone substitutes are often used in dental, orthopedic, and craniofacial surgery to help repair defects caused by trauma, tumors, or congenital abnormalities. They can also be used to augment bone volume in procedures such as spinal fusion or joint replacement.

There are several types of bone substitutes available, including:

1. Autografts: Bone taken from another part of the patient's body, such as the hip or pelvis.
2. Allografts: Bone taken from a deceased donor and processed to remove any cells and infectious materials.
3. Xenografts: Bone from an animal source, typically bovine or porcine, that has been processed to remove any cells and infectious materials.
4. Synthetic bone substitutes: Materials such as calcium phosphate ceramics, bioactive glass, and polymer-based materials that are designed to mimic the properties of natural bone.

The choice of bone substitute material depends on several factors, including the size and location of the defect, the patient's medical history, and the surgeon's preference. It is important to note that while bone substitutes can provide structural support and promote new bone growth, they may not have the same strength or durability as natural bone. Therefore, they may not be suitable for all applications, particularly those that require high load-bearing capacity.

An emulsion is a type of stable mixture of two immiscible liquids, such as oil and water, which are normally unable to mix together uniformly. In an emulsion, one liquid (the dispersed phase) is broken down into small droplets and distributed throughout the other liquid (the continuous phase), creating a stable, cloudy mixture.

In medical terms, emulsions can be used in various pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications. For example, certain medications may be formulated as oil-in-water or water-in-oil emulsions to improve their absorption, stability, or palatability. Similarly, some skincare products and makeup removers contain emulsifiers that help create stable mixtures of water and oils, allowing for effective cleansing and moisturizing.

Emulsions can also occur naturally in the body, such as in the digestion of fats. The bile salts produced by the liver help to form small droplets of dietary lipids (oil) within the watery environment of the small intestine, allowing for efficient absorption and metabolism of these nutrients.

Gastrointestinal transit refers to the movement of food, digestive secretions, and waste products through the gastrointestinal tract, from the mouth to the anus. This process involves several muscles and nerves that work together to propel the contents through the stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and rectum.

The transit time can vary depending on factors such as the type and amount of food consumed, hydration levels, and overall health. Abnormalities in gastrointestinal transit can lead to various conditions, including constipation, diarrhea, and malabsorption. Therefore, maintaining normal gastrointestinal transit is essential for proper digestion, nutrient absorption, and overall health.
