will occur with equal frequency, and therefore all such points will be modes (local frequency maxima) of the distribution. On the other hand, though, if the middle part of the trapezoid is not completely flat, or if one or both of the side ramps are not perfectly linear, then the trapezoidal distribution in question is a generalized trapezoidal distribution,[1][2] and more complicated and context-dependent rules may apply. The side ramps of a trapezoidal distribution are not required to be symmetric in the general case, just as the sides of trapezoids in geometry are not required to be symmetric. Special cases of the trapezoidal distribution include the uniform distribution (with ...

###### Patent US3881495 - Method of nerve therapy using trapezoidal pulses - Google Patents

A method of nerve therapy for treating nerves by electrical stimulation characterized by using pulses of a trapezoidal waveform such that the waveform, as viewed from a positive electrode has a flat positive potential with a negative pip that is a point made by convergence of the sides with no flat or curved portion. The therapy is carried out by contacting a patients skin with a pair of electrodes such that the positive electrode is orientated nearest the brain via the nerves conducting channels. The pulses with a trapezoidal waveform occur at a frequency selected within the range of 60 to 250 cycles per second, preferably within the range of 100 to 150 cycles per second with a peak to peak voltage of 55v or less (e.g., 19 to 25 volts.) These pulses are each defined as a pulse having a flat top portion with leading and trailing side portions which slope away from the top portion as the electrical potential drops toward the zero axis and proceeds into the negative pip.

The plasma concentration-time data observed in our study are similar to those observed in two preliminary reports describing the pharmacokinetics of orally administered nafithromycin in healthy subjects (17, 18). The mean ± SD Cmax of nafithromycin after the first dose of 800 mg in our study was 1.015 ± 0.314 mg/liter (at a mean time to Cmax [Tmax] of 3.97 h), whereas the reported range of mean Cmax values after a single dose was 0.932 to 1.207 mg/liter (at mean Tmax ranging from 3.88 to 4.0 h). Our observed value for the AUC from time zero extrapolated to infinity (AUC0-∞) after the first dose (12.89 ± 3.77 mg · h/liter) was consistent with the values observed in subjects who received a single 800-mg dose in the fasted (12.49 mg · h/liter) or fed (14.85 mg · h/liter) state or on the first day (AUC0-24, 11.99 mg · h/liter) of a multiple-dose study.

###### Mathematics of Computation

Abstract , References , Similar Articles , Additional Information Abstract: An interesting property of the midpoint rule and the trapezoidal rule, which is expressed by the so-called Hermite-Hadamard inequalities, is that they provide one-sided approximations to the integral of a convex function. We establish multivariate analogues of the Hermite-Hadamard inequalities and obtain access to multivariate integration formulae via convexity, in analogy to the univariate case. In particular, for simplices of arbitrary dimension, we present two families of integration formulae which both contain a multivariate analogue of the midpoint rule and the trapezoidal rule as boundary cases. The first family also includes a multivariate analogue of a Maclaurin formula and of the two-point Gaussian quadrature formula; the second family includes a multivariate analogue of a formula by P.C. Hammer and of Simpsons rule. In both families, we trace out those formulae which satisfy a Hermite-Hadamard inequality. As ...

Twenty chemotherapy-naive patients with ovarian carcinoma received 1, 5, 10, or 15 µg/kg/day (five patients per dose step) of recombinant human interleukin 3 (rhIL-3) over 7 days after carboplatin/cyclophosphamide in Cycles 1 and 3. Patients received rhIL-3 by continuous i.v. infusion or once daily s.c. injection in Cycle 1 and the alternate route in Cycle 3. Plasma rhIL-3 samples were obtained once daily on Days 1 to 6 and serially over a 24-h period on Day 7 for pharmacokinetic assessment of s.c. and i.v. administered rhIL-3 in 16 and 17 patients, respectively.

The plasma concentration-time profiles of EFV after oral dosing to rats were notable in that the concentrations at 40- and 160-mg/kg doses exhibited plateaus of about 4 and 16 μM, which were sustained for periods of 1 and 3 h, respectively. A 16-fold increase in the dose caused an AUC increase of about 70-fold (Table 2). These features coupled with the reduced plasma clearance after the high i.v. dose were suggestive of saturation of metabolism and possibly prolongation of absorption (Lin, 1994; Kwan, 1997) of EFV at the higher doses. The possibility of the prolonged absorption of EFV was further explored in rats. [14C]PEG-4000 was used as a nonabsorbable, nonmetabolizable macromolecular probe (Parlesak et al., 1994; Wiklund et al., 1984; Cortot et al., 1975; Krag et al., 1975) for investigating its transit time through the gastrointestinal tract, with and without pretreatment of animals with EFV. The results showed that PEG passed through the stomach rapidly in the control rats, and that most ...

###### DailyMed - RYDAPT capsule, liquid filled

Midostaurin exhibits time-dependent pharmacokinetics with an initial increase in minimum concentrations (Cmin) that reach the highest Cmin concentrations during the first week followed by a decline to a steady-state after approximately 28 days. The pharmacokinetics of the CGP62221 showed a similar trend. The plasma concentrations of CGP52421 continued to increase after one month of treatment.. The highest Cmin and steady-state of midostaurin, CGP62221, and CGP52421 were similar when RYDAPT was administered with food at a dose of 50 mg twice daily or 100 mg twice daily.. Absorption The time to maximal concentrations (Tmax) occurred between 1 to 3 hours post dose in the fasted state..

Purpose: This study determined the range of tolerable doses, clinical safety, pharmacokinetics, and preliminary evidence of clinical activity following once or twice daily administration of lapatinib in patients with solid malignancies.. Experimental Design: Cancer patients (n = 81) received oral doses of lapatinib ranging from 175 to 1,800 mg once daily or 500 to 900 mg twice daily. Clinical assessments of safety and antitumor activity were recorded and blood was sampled for pharmacokinetic assessments. The effect of a low-fat meal on lapatinib pharmacokinetics was assessed in a subset of patients.. Results: Lapatinib was well tolerated, such that dose escalation was limited at 1,800 mg once daily only by pill burden. Twice-daily dosing was implemented to further explore tolerability, and was limited by diarrhea to 500 mg twice daily. The most commonly reported adverse events with once-daily dosing were diarrhea (48%), nausea (40%), rash (40%), and fatigue (38%) and with twice-daily dosing were ...

This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that the considerable decrease in the clearance of I during chronic dosing was due to the formation of an inhibitory methylenedioxyaryl metabolite complex with the P450s that metabolize the compound. In support of this, a small amount of the P450-metabolite complex was formed in dogs within 24 h after a single dose of I, whereas considerably more of the complex was found after 14 days of treatment. Since the study design enabled the determination of the plasma pharmacokinetics of I and the formation of a P450-metabolite complex from the same animals, it was possible to evaluate the correlation between these two parameters. Although there was a 30-fold variation in the plasma AUC or clearance of Ibetween animals and a 12-fold variation in the amount of the liver P450-metabolite complex formed between dogs, there was a positive correlation between these pharmacokinetic parameters and the amount of the P450-metabolite complex formed in the livers of ...

###### Numerical Integration

There are an infinite number of parabolas through any two given points, but only one through three given points. If we find a parabola through three consecutive points \((x_i,f(x_i))\text{,}\) \((x_{i+1},f(x_{i+1}))\text{,}\) \((x_{i+2},f(x_{i+2}))\) on the curve, it should be quite close to the curve over the whole interval \([x_i,x_{i+2}]\text{,}\) as in Figure 2.6.3. If we divide the interval \([a,b]\) into an even number of subintervals, we can then approximate the curve by a sequence of parabolas, each covering two of the subintervals. For this to be practical, we would like a simple formula for the area under one parabola, namely, the parabola through \((x_i,f(x_i))\text{,}\) \((x_{i+1},f(x_{i+1}))\text{,}\) and \((x_{i+2},f(x_{i+2}))\text{.}\) That is, we should attempt to write down the parabola \(y=ax^2+bx+c\) through these points and then integrate it, and hope that the result is fairly simple. Although the algebra involved is messy, this turns out to be possible. The algebra is well ...

The success of Curve over the last six months has been pretty astounding even to the most bullish defi advocates, but it is still somewhat hindered by the fact that each curve pool is isolated to one asset class. So e.g. you can trade $5m of USDC into sUSD in one trade on chain, or $2m of sBTC into WBTC via 1inch, but you cant trade $10m USDC into $10m renBTC, because there isnt a shared asset in each pool that can be used to bridge them. Except… sBTC and sUSD are essentially the same asset due to their ability to be converted with zero slippage at the current oracle price. They can, therefore potentially be used as a bridge between the two pools. This combined with an sETH:WETH pool, would provide something that is currently ...

Her plan was to design a collar that provided proper tracheal support for dogs when they are running or pulling rather than the normal strap collar that has a 3 x load increase on the top edge when a dog is exerting pressure. The stiffer the collar, the higher the point of pressure, which inevitably leads to throat damage.. Several years were spent testing materials and working on digital modelling to perfect the design.

A comprehensive bibliographic search in PubMed database of all English language articles published from January 2000 to December 2017 was performed, allowing the selection of articles addressing the pharmacokinetics or pharmacodynamics of beta-lactam antibiotics in critically ill patients. In critically ill patients, several factors may increase volume of distribution and enhance renal clearance, inducing high intra- and inter-patient variability in beta-lactam concentration and promoting the risk of antibiotic underdosing. The duration of infusion of beta-lactams has been shown to influence the fT | minimal inhibitory concentration and an improved beta-lactam pharmacodynamics profile may be obtained by

Anlotinib is a novel multi-target tyrosine kinase inhibitor that is designed to primarily inhibit VEGFR2/3, FGFR1-4, PDGFR α/β, c-Kit, and Ret. We aimed to evaluate the safety, pharmacokinetics, and antitumor activity of anlotinib in patients with advanced refractory solid tumors. Anlotinib (5-16 mg) was orally administered in patients with solid tumor once a day on two schedules: (1) four consecutive weeks (4/0) or (2) 2-week on/1-week off (2/1). Pharmacokinetic sampling was performed in all patients. Twenty-one patients were further enrolled in an expanded cohort study on the recommended dose and schedule. Preliminary tumor response was also assessed. On the 4/0 schedule, dose-limiting toxicity (DLT) was grade 3 hypertension at 10 mg. On the 2/1 schedule, DLT was grade 3 hypertension and grade 3 fatigue at 16 mg. Pharmacokinetic assessment indicated that anlotinib had long elimination half-lives and significant accumulation during multiple oral doses. The 2/1 schedule was selected, with 12 mg once

###### Repository at Hanyang University: The effect of coenzyme Q10 on the pharmacokinetic parameters of theophylline

Interaction of a drug with other drugs and dietary supplements is becoming an emerging issue for patients and health insurance authorities due to awareness of adverse drug event. In this study, we examined the effects of coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10), one of the most popular dietary supplements, on the pharmacokinetic parameters of theophylline in rats. The pharmacokinetic parameters of theophylline changed significantly when the drug was administered after five consecutive days of pretreatment with CoQ10. Time to reach maximum plasma concentration of theophylline delayed when the drug was administered after the pretreatment with CoQ10. Maximum plasma concentration and area under the curve of theophylline were about two-fold increased and other pharmacokinetic parameters such as half-life and volume of distribution were also changed significantly. Therefore, although CoQ10 is generally considered a safe dietary supplement, it appears that patients on theophylline therapy should use caution when they take ...

###### Importance of first-pass elimination for interindividual differences in steady-state concentrations of the adrenergicβ...

Seven healthy volunteers showing a fourteenfold range in steady-state plasma concentrations on oral alprenolol (200 mg b.i.d.) were investigated by administration of 5 mg of the drug intravenously and then 50, 100, 150, and 200 mg as single oral doses. The rank order for individual steady-state plasma concentrations was the same as that for the relative bioavailability of the 200 mg dose. The area under the plasma concentration-time curve showed a nonlinear increase with the dose. As the relative availability was a good predictor of steady state while clearance after intravenous administration was not, it was concluded that differences in first-pass elimination markedly contribute to the interindividual variability in steady state plasma concentrations. After pentobarbital treatment, the area under the plasma concentration curve of the 200 mg dose was decreased to 32% and 59% of the pretreatment values in two subjects, but there was no change in the plasma half-life of alprenolol. This indicates

###### A Randomized Study of Pharmacokinetics, Efficacy, and Safety of 2 Raltegravir Plus Atazanavir Strategies in ART-Treated Adults

Mean steady-state plasma concentration-time profiles are shown in Figure 1. Pharmacokinetic parameters are summarized in Table 2. There was no period or sequence effect for any ATV parameter (AUC0-24, P = 0.25; Cmax, P = 0.46; Cmin, P = 0.91; Tmax, P = 0.84) or RAL parameter (AUC0-24, P = 0.12; Cmax, P = 0.35; Cmin, P = 0.19; Tmax, P = 0.47). Both ATV and RAL demonstrated considerable pharmacokinetic variability (Table 2). The 90% CIs of Cmin GMR (q24h/q12h) for both ATV and RAL were outside the prespecified equivalence interval of 0.80-1.25 [1.30 (90% CI: 1.08 to 1.58) and 0.48 (90% CI: 0.31 to 0.75), respectively], demonstrating nonequivalence between q12h and q24h dosages. We observed significant between-strategy differences for ATV AUC0-24 [GMR 0.76 (90% CI: 0.59 to 0.98)] and RAL Cmax [GMR 1.99 (90% CI: 1.50 to 2.63)]. RTV pharmacokinetic parameters are summarized in Table 2; there was no period effect for any parameter (AUC0-12, P = 0.10; Cmin, P = 0.31; Cmax, P = 0.45; Tmax, P = 0.86 ...

PURPOSE: Metarrestin is a first-in-class small molecule clinical candidate capable of disrupting the perinucleolar compartment, a subnuclear structure unique to metastatic cancer cells. This study aims to define the pharmacokinetic (PK) profile of metarrestin and the pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic relationship of metarrestin-regulated markers. METHODS: PK studies included the administration of single or multiple dose of metarrestin at 3, 10, or 25 mg/kg via intravenous (IV) injection, gavage (PO) or with chow to wild-type C57BL/6 mice and KPC mice bearing autochthonous pancreatic tumors. Metarrestin concentrations were analyzed by UPLC-MS/MS. Pharmacodynamic assays included mRNA expression profiling by RNA-seq and qRT-PCR for KPC mice. RESULTS: Metarrestin had a moderate plasma clearance of 48 mL/min/kg and a large volume of distribution of 17 L/kg at 3 mg/kg IV in C57BL/6 mice. The oral bioavailability after single-dose (SD) treatment was , 80%. In KPC mice treated with SD 25 mg/kg PO, plasma ...

###### Role of Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics: Does the Dose Matter? : Clinical Infectious Diseases - oi

Antibiotic dose is important in determining serum area-under-the-curve (AUC) and peak serum concentration (Cmax), as well as the time the serum concentration remains over the pathogen minimum inhibitory concentration (T,MIC). However, dose is not the sole determinant of these factors; they are modified by absorption, clearance, and frequency of dosing. It is difficult to relate dose to clinical outcome in humans, but pharmacodynamic parameters (AUC/MIC, Cmax/MIC, or T,MIC) have been related to clinical and bacteriological efficacy or emergence of resistance to aminoglycosides, fluoroquinolones, glycopeptides, and β-lactams.. ...

We measured hair and plasma concentrations of isoniazid among sixteen children with tuberculosis who underwent personal or video-assisted directly observed therapy and thus had 100% adherence. This study therefore defined typical isoniazid exposure parameters after two months of treatment among fully-adherent patients in both hair and plasma (plasma area under the concentration-time curve, AUC, estimated using pharmacokinetic data collected 0, 2, 4, and 6 hours after drug administration). We found that INH levels in hair among highly-adherent individuals did not correlate well with plasma AUC or trough concentrations, suggesting that each measure may provide incremental and complementary information regarding drug exposure in the context of TB treatment ...

Comparison of the plasma pharmacokinetic parameters following the 1st and 5th daily doses of 500 mg intravenous azithromycin showed only an 8% increase in Cmax but a 61% increase in AUC24 reflecting a threefold rise in C24 trough levels.. Following single-oral doses of 500 mg azithromycin (two 250 mg capsules) to 12 healthy volunteers, Cmax, trough level, and AUC24 were reported to be 0.41 mcg/mL, 0.05 mcg/mL, and 2.6 mcg∙h/mL, respectively. These oral values are approximately 38%, 83%, and 52% of the values observed following a single 500-mg I.V. 3-hour infusion (Cmax: 1.08 mcg/mL, trough: 0.06 mcg/mL, and AUC24: 5.0 mcg∙h/mL). Thus, plasma concentrations are higher following the intravenous regimen throughout the 24-hour interval.. Distribution The serum protein binding of azithromycin is variable in the concentration range approximating human exposure, decreasing from 51% at 0.02 mcg/mL to 7% at 2 mcg/mL.. Tissue concentrations have not been obtained following intravenous infusions of ...

In vitro data has limitations and may not reflect what occurs in the whole organism. The conversion rate may be slower or faster, the concentrations different, etc., which is why it is not always possible to follow the entire bioconversion in vivo. The three compounds, aripiprazole, N-hydroxymethyl aripiprazole and aripiprazole lauroxil, were therefore dosed intravenously to three different groups of rats. The plasma concentration time profile following administration of aripiprazole. can be seen in Fig. 4A. The profile could be described by a bi-exponential equation: equation(3) Cpl=1464⋅e−2.77t+1205⋅e−0.16tCpl=1464⋅e−2.77t+1205⋅e−0.16t where Cpl is the concentration of aripiprazole (nanomol) in plasma and t is time (in hours). The AUC0→∞ was 8176 ± 2647 nmol h/L, clearance 1.37 ± 0.61 L/h/kg and volume of distribution 8.16 ± 0.75 L/kg giving a terminal plasma half-life of ≈4.2 h. This is slightly longer than that previously INCB024360 cost reported following ...

###### Bias in Estimating Multivariate and Univariate Diffusions

Downloadable! Multivariate continuous time models are now widely used in economics and finance. Empirical applications typically rely on some process of discretization so that the system may be estimated with discrete data. This paper introduces a framework for discretizing linear multivariate continuous time systems that includes the commonly used Euler and trapezoidal approximations as special cases and leads to a general class of estimators for the mean reversion matrix. Asymptotic distributions and bias formulae are obtained for estimates of the mean reversion parameter. Explicit expressions are given for the discretization bias and its relationship to estimation bias in both multivariate and in univariate settings. In the univariate context, we compare the performance of the two approximation methods relative to exact maximum likelihood (ML) in terms of bias and variance for the Vasicek process. The bias and the variance of the Euler method are found to be smaller than the trapezoidal method, which

###### Molecules | Free Full-Text | Pharmacokinetic Study in Mice of Galphimine-A, an Anxiolytic Compound from Galphimia glauca | HTML

The aim of this study was to obtain pharmacokinetic data for the anxiolytic compound galphimine-A (G-A) from Galphimia glauca. G-A is the most abundant anxiolytic compound in this plant, while Galphimine-E (G-E) is the most abundant galphimine, but inactive. G-E was transformed chemically into G-A. The pharmacokinetic study was carried out in ICR mice, which were orally administered a single 200 mg/kg dose of G-A. Samples of blood and brain were taken at different times after administration of G-A. Previously, we established the validation of methods for determining the concentration of G-A. The G-A was detected in plasma 5 min after oral administration, and its concentration reached 2.47 μg/mL. Data from concentration-time curves allowed us to establish the main pharmacokinetic parameters in two models: one- and/or two-compartment. Cmax values were 3.33 and 3.42 μg/mL respectively, likewise AUC0→1440 min were 1,951.58 and 1,824.95 μg/mL·min. The G-A in brain tissue was noted to cross the blood

###### Pharmacokinetics of multiple-dose administration of eltenac in horses

OBJECTIVE: To compare pharmacokinetics of eltenac after first and last IV administrations (0.5 mg/kg), using a multiple dosing schedule. ANIMALS: 6 adult mares. PROCEDURE: Eltenac (50 mg/ml) was administered IV at a dosage of 0.5 mg/kg of body weight every 24 hours for days 0 through 4. On days 0 and 4, blood samples were collected before, then periodically for 8 hours after eltanac administration. Concentration of eltenac in plasma samples was determined by use of high-performance liquid chromatography. RESULTS: On day 0, median area under the plasma eltenac concentration versus time curve (AUC) was 6.77 microg.h/ml (range, 5.61 to 8.08 microg.h/ml), median plasma clearance was 1.23 ml/min/kg (range, 1.03 to 1.40 ml/min/kg), and median steady-state volume of distribution was 191 ml/kg (range, 178 to 218 ml/kg). Median terminal half-life of eltenac was 2.36 hours (range, 2.30 to 2.98 hours). On day 4, median eltenac AUC was 6.70 microg.h/ml (range, 5.21 to 7.44 microg.h/ml), median plasma ...

###### pr.probability - Problem on convergence in probability measres - MathOverflow

Edit: Previous answer was bogus.. Let me change your notation a little to let $x_0$ be the limit of the $x_n$.. Yes, this is true. It follows from tightness and the general fact that $h(x_n, \cdot) \to h(x_0, \cdot)$ uniformly on compact sets.. Without loss of generality, lets suppose that $h(x_0, \cdot) = 0$ (replace $h(x,y)$ by $h(x,y) - h(x_0,y)$). Let $\epsilon , 0$ and let $M$ be the sup norm of $h$. By the easier direction of Prohorovs theorem, the sequence $\{\mu_n\}$ is tight, so there is a compact $K \subset S$ such that for every $n$ we have $\mu_n(K^C) , \epsilon$. Now we have $$\begin{align*}\left,\int h(x_n, y) \mu_n(dy)\right, &\le \int_K ,h(x_n,y),\,\mu_n(dy) + \int_{K^C} ,h(x_n, y), \mu_n(dy) \\ &\le \sup_{y \in K} ,h(x_n, y), + M \epsilon.\end{align*}$$ So it suffices to show that $h(x_n, \cdot) \to 0$ uniformly on $K$. Suppose not; then passing to a subsequence if necessary, we can find $\delta , 0$ so that $\sup_{y \in K} ,h(x_n, y), , \delta$ for all $n$. Thus for each $n$ ...
