    This study deals with the interactions of cocaine with barbital, pentobarbital and ethanol in nontolerant and tolerant male Sprague-Dawley rats. Cocaine hydrochloride (50 mg) pellets implanted s.c. in rats prior to the i.p. injections of sodium barbital (150 mg/kg dose once daily for 4 days) potentiated the hypothermic response 2 hr after the barbital injection, when maximum hypothermia occurred. The s.c. implantation of the same type of pellets prior to the i.p. injections of sodium pentobarbital (75 mg/kg dose once daily for 5 days) potentiated the pentobarbital hypnosis as measured by the duration of loss of the righting reflex in animals. Cocaine pellets (12.5 mg) implanted s.c. in rats potentiated the hypnosis induced by ethanol (3.2 g/kg i.p.) and the implantation of the same type of pellets (12.5, 25 mg) in ethanol-tolerant rats restored the ethanol hypnosis to levels observed in acutely treated animals. The course of tolerance development to barbital-induced hypothermia or pentobarbital hypnosis did not appear to be affected by cocaine. The possible role of central monoamines in the potentiation of barbital hypothermia and pentobarbital and ethanol hypnosis by cocaine is discussed. PMID:2774771

    By using density functional theory, we studied the interaction process between barbital and 2-vinyl-4,6-diamino-1,3,5-triazine in acetonitrile at 333 K. Barbital and 2-vinyl-4,6-diamino-1,3,5-triazine were used as the template and functional monomer, respectively. The molecularly imprinted polymer microspheres containing barbital and 2-vinyl-4,6-diamino-1,3,5-triazine were synthesized through precipitation polymerization. After removing the template molecule barbital, the average diameter of the obtained molecularly imprinted polymers was 1.45 μm. By optimizing the molar ratio of barbital and the 2-vinyl-4,6-diamino-1,3,5-triazine, the resulting molecularly imprinted polymers showed the highest adsorption for the barbital. The analysis of the Scatchard plot revealed that the dissociation constant (Kd ) and apparent maximum adsorption quantity (Qmax ) of the molecularly imprinted polymers were 30.69 mg/L and 8.68 mg/g, respectively. The study of selective adsorption showed that molecularly imprinted polymers exhibited higher selectivity for barbtital than that for 1,3-dimethyl barbituric acid and pentobarbital. Herein, the studies can provide theoretical and experimental references for the barbital-imprinted system. PMID:26420630

  3. Response of rat brain protein synthesis to ethanol and sodium barbital

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Central nervous system (CNS) depressants such as ethanol and barbiturates under acute or chronic conditions can induce changes in rat brain protein synthesis. While these data demonstrate the individual effects of drugs on protein synthesis, the response of brain protein synthesis to alcohol-drug interactions is not known. The goal of the present study was to determine the individual and combined effects of ethanol and sodium barbital on brain protein synthesis and gain an understanding of the mechanisms by which these alterations in protein synthesis are produced. Specifically, the in vivo and in vitro effects of sodium barbital (one class of barbiturates which is not metabolized by the hepatic tissue) were examined on brain protein synthesis in rats made physically dependent upon ethanol. Using cell free brain polysomal systems isolated from Control, Ethanol and 24 h Ethanol Withdrawn rats, data show that sodium barbital, when intubated intragastrically, inhibited the time dependent incorporation of 14C) leucine into protein by all three groups of ribosomes. Under these conditions, the Ethanol Withdrawn group displayed the largest inhibition of the 14C) leucine incorporation into protein when compared to the Control and Ethanol groups. In addition, sodium barbital when added at various concentrations in vitro to the incubation medium inhibited the incorporation of 14C) leucine into protein by Control and Ethanol polysomes. The inhibitory effects were also obtained following preincubation of ribosomes in the presence of barbital but not cycloheximide. Data suggest that brain protein synthesis, specifically brain polysomes, through interaction with ethanol or barbital are involved in the functional development of tolerance. These interactions may occur through proteins or polypeptide chains or alterations in messenger RNA components associated with the ribosomal units

    A thermochemical and thermophysical study has been carried out for crystalline barbital [5,5'-diethylbarbituric acid]. The thermochemical study was made by static bomb combustion calorimetry, from which the standard (p{sup 0}=0.1MPa) molar enthalpy of formation of the crystalline barbital, at T = 298.15 K, was derived as -(753.0 {+-} 1.8) kJ . mol{sup -1}. The thermophysical study was made by differential scanning calorimetry over the temperature interval (265 to 470) K. A solid-solid phase transition was found at T = 413.3 K. The vapour pressures of the crystalline barbital were measured at several temperatures between T = (355 and 377) K, by the Knudsen mass-loss effusion technique, from which the standard molar enthalpy of sublimation, at T = 298.15 K was derived as (117.3 {+-} 0.6) kJ . mol{sup -1}. The combination of the experimental results yielded the standard molar enthalpy of formation of barbital in the gaseous phase, at T = 298.15 K, as -(635.8 {+-} 1.9) kJ . mol{sup -1}. This value is compared and discussed with our theoretical calculations by several methods (Gaussian-n theories G2 and G3, complete basis set CBS-QB3, density functional B3P86 and B3LYP) by means of atomization and isodesmic reaction schemes.

  5. Imidazole π cation and barbital π anion trapped in a cocrystalline complex x-irradiated at 12 K: An ESR--ENDOR study

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The predominant free radicals trapped in single crystals of the 1:1 intermolecular complex of imidazole and 5,5-diethylbarbituric acid (barbital) x-irradiated at 12 K have been identified by ESR and ENDOR. The electron abstraction and electron addition products are found to be the imidazole π cation and the barbital π anion, respectively. The π cation provides experimental evidence of evenly distributed unpaired electron density at positions C2, C4, and C5 of the five membered imidazole ring. In the π anion the unpaired electron density is localized primarily on C4 of barbital. It is suggested that π anions are trapped in barbital in preference to imidazole because barbital has a higher cross section for electron capture than imidazole. On the other hand, π cations are trapped in imidazole in preference to barbital because the barbital π cation has a higher cross section for destruction than the imidazole π cation

    Full Text Available Introduction:Anaesthetic drugs are nowadays used on a large scale in surgical operations as well as in other various medical purposes. Sodium barbital is a derivative of barbituric acid and is widely used on short surgical operations and other various medication. However, such anaesthetic drug has been reported to evoke many serious alterations as a result of its application. Materials and Methods:The experimental animals (30 mice-weighing 25-30 g were divided into 3 groups (10/group, the first group served as a control group (i.e. injection with saline, while the other two groups were treated daily with the therapeutic dose of 60 mg/kg.b.wt sodium barbital (i.p. for 7 days (short-term group and 21 days (long-term group as repeated daily doses. Blood sera and kidney samples were collected for physiological, histological and histochemical studies. Results:The results obtained showed a significant increase in urea, blood urea nitrogen, uric acid and creatinine levels in all treated groups. On the other hand serum total protein and albumin levels showed a significant decrease in both treated groups, while the globulin showed a significant decrease only in the long term group. The applied dose of sodium barbital caused histophathological alterations in the renal tissue mainly in the cortex such as damage and shrinkage of the Malpighian corpuscles, cloudy swelling and necrosis of the cells of the proximal convoluted tubules. Also, distal convoluted tubules exhibited degenerated features. In the histochemical studies, polysaccharides were progressively reduced in both short and long-term groups, while the total proteins showed a reduction in the short term group and considerably increase in the long term group. Conclusion: So these results came to conclusion that barbiturates should be prohibited and carefully used specially when prescribed as tranquilizer

  8. Multiwalled carbon nanotubes as a solid-phase extraction adsorbent for the determination of three barbiturates in pork by ion trap gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC/MS/MS) following microwave assisted derivatization

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A new method was developed for the rapid screening and confirmation analysis of barbital, amobarbital and phenobarbital residues in pork by gas chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (GC/MS/MS) with ion trap MSD. The residual barbiturates in pork were extracted by ultrasonic extraction, cleaned up on a multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) packed solid phase extraction (SPE) cartridge and applied acetone-ethyl acetate (3:7, v/v) mixture as eluting solvent and derivatized with CH3I under microwave irradiation. The methylated barbiturates were separated on a TR-5MS capillary column and detected with an ion trap mass detector. Electron impact ion source (EI) operating MS/MS mode was adopted for identification and external standard method was employed for quantification. One precursor ion m/z 169 was selected for analysis of barbital and amobarbital and m/z 232 was selected for phenobarbital. The product ions were obtained under 1.0 V excitation voltage. Good linearities (linear coefficient R > 0.99) were obtained at the range of 0.5-50 μg kg-1. Limit of detection (LOD) of barbital was 0.2 μg kg-1 and that of amobarbital and phenobarbital were both 0.1 μg kg-1 (S/N ≥ 3). Limit of quatification (LOQ) was 0.5 μg kg-1 for three barbiturates (S/N ≥ 10). Satisfying recoveries ranging from 75% to 96% of the three barbiturates spiked in pork were obtained, with relative standard deviations (R.S.D.) in the range of 2.1-7.8%

Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer We examine their thermal stability using DTA and TG techniques. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The thermodynamic parameters of the decomposition reaction were evaluated. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer We proposed mechanisms for the decomposition processes. - Abstract: Mn(II), Fe(III), Co(II), Ni(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II) complexes of barbital, thiouracil, adenine, amino acids, beside mixed metals and mixed ligands were prepared. The structures of the complexes are of Oh, distorted Oh, Td and distorted Td geometries. Differential thermal (DTA) and thermogravimetric analysis (TG) of the complexes pointed to their stability. The change of entropy values, {Delta}S{sup numbersign}, showed that the transition states are more ordered than the reacting complexes. The fractions appeared in the calculated order of the thermal reactions, n, confirmed that the thermal reactions proceed in complicated mechanisms where the bond between the central metal ion and the ligands dissociates after losing small molecules such as H{sub 2}O. In most cases, the free radical species of the ligands are assigned to exist through decomposition mechanisms.

    The pH effect on electronic absorption spectra of some biologically active nucleic acid constituents have been studied at room temperature and the mechanism of ionization was explained. These compounds are of two categories (pyrimidines: [barbital; 5,5'-diethyl-barbituric acid], [SBA; 4,6-dihydroxy-2-mercapto-pyrimidin], [NBA; 5-nitro-2,4,6(1H,3H,5H)-pyrimidine trione] and [TU; 2,3-dihydro-2-thioxo-pyrimidin-4(1H)-one]) and (purines: [adenine; 6-amino purine], its [Schiff bases derived from adenine-acetylacetone; (Z)-4-(7H-purin-6-ylimino)pentan-2-one) and adenine-salicylaldehyde; 2-((7H-purin-6-ylimino) methyl) phenol] and its [Azo derived from adenine-resorcinol; 4-((7H-purin-6-yl)-diazenyl) benzene-1,3-diol]. The phenomena of tautomerization assigned different tautomers. Different spectrophotometric methods are applied to evaluate the pK's values that explained with their molecular structures. The interaction of Fe3+ with some selected pyrimidines (barbital, NBA and SBA) was explained using familiar six spectrophotometric methods. The data typified the existence of different absorbing species with the different stoichiometries 1:1, 1:2, 1:3 and 2:3. The stability constant of the complexes was computed. More approach was deduced to assign the existence of different species applying the distribution diagrams.

  12. Development of T3 radioimmunoassay kit

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Thyroxine T4 radioimmunoassay (RIA) kit has already been developed in this laboratory. For an efficient diagnosis of thyroid disease, however, it is well known that the T3 RIA should also be carried out in addition to the T4 RIA. Accordingly, the development of T3 RIA kit was urgently desired to match the T4 kit and to hold a sound domestic supply systems. The high specific activity T3125I about 3,000 μCi/μg T3) could be obtained by radioiodinating T2 with chloramine-T, and the labelled product could be stahilized. In the preparation of T3 free serum, charcoal was eliminated easily from serum by high speed centrifugation, and the resulting T3 free serum was used for the preparation of T3 standard serum solutions. RIA buffer system could be improved with the use of 0.025M barbital buffer, pH 8.2, containing 0.1% BSA, 0.5% bovine aamma globulin and 0.02% merthiolate. Antibody titer was increased threefold by using the 0.025M barbital buffer; the titer was 8,000: 1 in the 0.078M borbital buffer, pH 8.6, containing 0.1% BSA and 0.1% NaN3 while it was 26,000 : 1 in the above described 0.025M barbital buffer. The modified buffer system was also efficient for the use in T4 RIA since it increased the T4 antibody titer twofold. When the same buffer system was used in T3 RIA, no significant difference was observed between the use of HSA and of BSA in so far as 0.5% bovine gamma globulin was added to the buffer, contradicting those in the reference. The resalts indicated that the cost for the preparation of both kits can be saved. Quality guaranteed kits could be prepared by careful control of the assay values in comparing with those of the reference control sera. In consequence, there is not any technical difficulty in routine production. (Author)

    Barbiturates are central nervous system depressants with sedative and hypnotic properties. Some barbiturates, with longer half-lives, are used as anticonvulsants. Their mechanism of action includes activation of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) mediated neuronal transmission inhibition. Clinically used barbiturates include amobarbital, butalbital, pentobarbital, phenobarbital, secobarbital, and thiopental. Besides their therapeutic use, barbiturates are commonly abused. Their analysis is useful for both clinical and forensic proposes. Gas chromatography mass spectrometry is a commonly used method for the analysis of barbiturates. In the method described here, barbiturates from serum, plasma, or urine are extracted using an acidic phosphate buffer and methylene chloride. Barbital is used as an internal standard. The organic extract is dried and reconstituted with mixture of trimethylanilinium hydroxide (TMAH) and ethylacetate. The extract is injected into a gas chromatogram mass spectrometer where it undergoes "flash methylation" in the hot injection port. Selective ion monitoring and relative retention times are used for the identification and quantitation of barbiturates. PMID:20077060

    Throughout the history of humanity, numerous therapeutic agents have been employed for their sedative and hypnotic properties such as opium, henbane (Hyoscyamus niger) and deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna), but also alcohol and wine. In the 19th century potassium bromide was introduced as a sedative - and antiepileptic drug and chloral hydrate as sedative-hypnotics. A new era was reached by the introduction of barbiturates. The story started with the chemist Adolf von Baeyer. His breakthrough in the synthesis of new agents as barbituric acid and indigo and his education of young chemists was of great importance for the science of organic chemistry and the development of the dye and medicine industry in the late 19th century. The next important step was the development of barbiturates. The pioneers were Josef von Mering and Emil Fischer. Using the Grimaux-method they synthesized various barbiturates. It was von Mering who got the idea of introducing ethyl groups in the inactive barbituric acid to obtain sedatives, but the synthesis was succeeded by the chemist Emil Fischer. Experiments with dogs clearly showed sedative and hypnotic effect of the barbiturates and the oral administration of barbital (Veronal) confirmed the effect in humans. Barbital was commercialized in 1903 and in 1911 phenobarbital (Luminal) was introduced in the clinic, and this drug showed hypnotic and antiepileptic effects. Thereafter a lot of new barbiturates appeared. Dangerous properties of the drugs were recognized as abuse, addiction, and poisoning. An optimum treatment of acute barbiturate intoxication was obtained by the "Scandinavian method", which was developed in the Poison Centre of the Bispebjerg Hospital in Copenhagen. The centre was established by Carl Clemmesen in 1949 and the intensive care treatment reduced the mortality of the admitted persons from 20% to less than 2%. To-day only a few barbiturates are used in connection with anaesthesia and for the treatment of epilepsy

    Full Text Available Optimization of various production parameters using response surface methodology (RSM was performed to assess maximum yield of rifamycin B from Nocardia mediterranei MTCC 14. Plackett-Burman design test was applied to determine the significant effects of various production parameters such as glucose, maltose, ribose, galactose, beef extract, peanut meal, ammonium chloride, ammonium sulphate, barbital, pH, and moisture content on production of rifamycin B. Among the eleven variables tested, galactose, ribose, glucose, and pH were found to have significant effect on rifamycin B production. Optimum levels of the significant variables were decided by using a central composite design. The most appropriate condition for production of rifamycin B was found to be a single step production at galactose (8% w/w, ribose (3% w/w, glucose (9% w/w, and pH (7.0. At these optimum production parameters, the maximum yield of rifamycin B obtained experimentally (9.87 g/kgds dry sunflower oil cake was found to be very close to its predicted value of 10.35 g/kgds dry sunflower oil cake. The mathematical model developed was found to fit greatly with the experimental data of rifamycin B production.

    Triiodothyronine uptake (T3U) is a qualitative technique for evaluation of the unsaturation capacity of thyroid binding globulin (TBG). This paper presents results related to a T3 standardized serum and the integration of T3-I-125, and adsorbent for labelled hormone. Labelled hormone were prepared by the chloramine T method and then purified by high performance liquid chromatography. The specific activity was 500 {mu} Ci/ {mu} g. Various adsorbents such as: Norit A Charcoal, calcium silicate, talc, bovine serum albumin macroaggregated (BSAM) were used in different buffers as: Tris-HCl, barbital and Michaelis. Standardized serum was prepared by mixing different euthyroid sera. Best conditions for T3U assays were achieved with 15 mg/ml. BSAM at pH 8.6 in presence of Tris-HCl buffer for hypothyroid and hyperthyroid sera, for which we obtained < 0.9 {+-} 0.04 and > 1.1 {+-} 0.05 respectively as a T3U index with a 3.0 % of coefficient variation. The reagents so prepared can be conveniently used for T3U assays. (Author)

    This paper describes the application of Raman spectroscopy to the detection of exogenous substances in cyanoacrylate-fumed fingerprints. The scenario considered was that of an individual handling a substance and subsequently depositing a contaminated fingerprint. These fingerprints were enhanced by cyanoacrylate fuming, a process in which a layer of white cyanoacrylate polymer is deposited on the fingerprint material, enabling visual detection. Five drugs of abuse (codeine phosphate, cocaine hydrochloride, amphetamine sulphate, barbital and nitrazepam) and five non-controlled substances of similar appearance, which may be used in the adulteration of drugs of abuse (caffeine, aspirin, paracetamol, starch and talc), were used. The substances studied could be clearly distinguished using their Raman spectra and were all successfully detected in cyanoacrylate-fumed fingerprints. Photobleaching was necessary to reduce the fluorescence background in the spectra of some substances. Raman spectra obtained from the substances in cyanoacrylate-fumed fingerprints were of a similar quality to spectra obtained from the substances under normal sampling conditions, however, interfering Raman bands arising from the cyanoacrylate polymer were present in the spectra. In most cases the only interfering band was the CN stretching mode of the polymer, and there were no cases where the interfering bands prevented identification of the substances. If necessary, the interfering bands could be successfully removed by spectral subtraction. The most difficult aspect of the detection of these substances in cyanoacrylate-fumed fingerprints was visually locating the substance in the fingerprint beneath the polymer layer in order to obtain a Raman spectrum.

    Objectives: To evaluate the barrier function of different skin layers in the process of percutaneous drug absorption. Methods: In vitro permeability via intact or stripped skin of 6 drugs (5-fluorouracil, theophylline, hydroquinone, barbital, isosorbide dinitrate and ketoprofen) with a wide span of lipophilicity were investigated in the patch dosage forms. Results: Characteristic parabolic relations was observed between the permeability (Kp, cm/h) of the drugs with different lipophilicity and their LogPc via either intact or stripped skin. However, due to the absence of the stratum corneum, increased Kp ratio for the tested drugs was proportional to their solubility in water other than their LogKp. When isopropyl myristate was used as absorption promoter of the drugs, the parabolic relationship no longer existed. For the intact skin, increase of Kp ratio of the drugs was enhanced resulting from IPM as drug's LogPc decreased. On the other hand, in the case of stripped skin, this enhancement was positively related to the solubility of the drugs in IPM. Conclusion: These data and methods present a novel approach to describe percutaneous drug absorption via damaged or diseased skin.

    A new series of sodium barbital complexes with Alkaline earth metals (Mg2+, Ca2+, Sr2+ and Ba2+ ions) was prepared. The molecular formulas for the isolated complexes were suggested basically on the elemental analysis data. The binuclear central were proposed for all investigated complexes. The geometry suggested based on knowing the coordination sits for each complex was built on concerning with the shift observed in IR spectra surround the coordinating groups. The shifts in charge transfer bands appeared in the electronic spectra of the complexes supports the coordination process. The presence of solvent molecules coordinately attached with central metal atoms as well as the conjugated anions was supported based on thermogravimetric analysis. The kinetic parameters were calculated for each complex. The theoretical calculations for the molecular modeling structures reflect an insight about their stability in comparing with the free ligand. The XRD studies were performed and concluding the nanocrystalline feature for all complexes. The biochemical effect of all investigated compounds was performed towards Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria as well as their degradation effect on calf Thymus DNA. The biological performance is the major goal in this study especially with such essential metal ions.

  8. The reduction of I2 by H2O2 in aqueous solution

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The reduction of I2 by hydrogen peroxide, a primary water radiolysis product, has been identified as a key reaction that would influence iodine volatility in nuclear reactor accident conditions (1-3). Although there have been a number of studies of the reduction Of I2, there exists a great degree of controversy regarding the intermediates involved, the effect of buffers, and the general rate law (1-9). Because the rates and the mechanism of this reaction are important in predicting the pH dependence of iodine behaviour in reactor containment building after a postulated reactor accident, we have undertaken a kinetic study Of I2 reduction by H2O2 in aqueous solution over a pH range of 6-9. The experiments were performed using stopped-flow instrumentation and monitoring the decay of I3- spectrophotometrically. The effects of buffer catalysis have been examined by comparison of kinetic data obtained in sodium barbital (5,5-diethylbarbituric acid), disodium citrate, and disodium hydrogen phosphate buffers. The effect of buffers, combined with the complex acid dependence of the rate law, explains many of the discrepancies reported in earlier literature. (author)

    Optimization of various production parameters using response surface methodology (RSM) was performed to assess maximum yield of rifamycin B from Nocardia mediterranei MTCC 14. Plackett-Burman design test was applied to determine the significant effects of various production parameters such as glucose, maltose, ribose, galactose, beef extract, peanut meal, ammonium chloride, ammonium sulphate, barbital, pH, and moisture content on production of rifamycin B. Among the eleven variables tested, galactose, ribose, glucose, and pH were found to have significant effect on rifamycin B production. Optimum levels of the significant variables were decided by using a central composite design. The most appropriate condition for production of rifamycin B was found to be a single step production at galactose (8% w/w), ribose (3% w/w), glucose (9% w/w), and pH (7.0). At these optimum production parameters, the maximum yield of rifamycin B obtained experimentally (9.87 g/kgds dry sunflower oil cake) was found to be very close to its predicted value of 10.35 g/kgds dry sunflower oil cake. The mathematical model developed was found to fit greatly with the experimental data of rifamycin B production. PMID:25371823

The fractions tested were the CHCl3, the EtOAc, the n-BuOH and the aqueous fraction obtained from P. glomerata subterraneous parts. Only the pretreatment with the lipophilic fraction (CHCl3: EtOAc, 1:1, w/w increased the barbiturate sleeping time (i.p 500 mg/kg; v.o. 1000 mg/kg. Ecdysterone, the main substance isolated from this lipophilic fraction, was identified by spectroscopic methods and its content in the ethanol extract was determined as 1.4% (w/w by HPLC. In order to investigate the hypothesis of ecdysterone displaying a depressant effect on nervous central system, an evaluation toward the hypnotic-sedative and anxiolytic effects of this drug was carried out. Ecdysterone 100 mg/kg, i.p, increased the barbiturate sleeping time without provoking hypothermia; when administered by oral route its minimal effective dose was 400 mg/kg. On the other hand, ecdysterone (100 mg/kg, i.p; 400 mg/kg, p.o did not impair motor coordination and was ineffective on pentylenetetrazole-induced convulsion, elevated plus-maze and step-down inhibitory avoidance tests, indicating that at these doses the drug does not present an anxiolytic profile and does not cause manifest neurotoxic effects as well.

O eletródio ativo era implantado estereotàxicamente segundo as coordenadas de König e Klippel. As lesões eram feitas parcial ou totalmente, uni ou bilateralmente, e em todos os animais procedeu-se ao controle histológico das áreas lesadas, usando-se o método de Weil. O registro da atividade elétrica cortical foi feito com polígrafo Beckman de 4 canais, utilizando-se derivações bipolares curtas (1mm com eletródios esféricos de platina. As experiências permitiram as seguintes conclusões: 1 — As características eletrofisiológicas dos fusos que ocorrem após lesões da formação reticular mesencefálica são muito semelhantes às dos fusos espontâneos e barbitúricos, inclusive quanto à projeção cortical. Quanto à duração dos potenciais que os constituem, contudo, notamos que a faixa de variação era mais centuada (20 a 80 ms, o que pode ser atribuído à maior complexidade dos potenciais do cérebro isolado, possivelmente pela falta de ação cronadora da formação reticular sobre o sistema sincronizador talâmico. 2 — Os mecanismos envolvidos na gênese dos fusos do sono barbitúrico ou espontâneo e os do cérebro isolado são, pelo menos em parte, dependentes do bloqueio da formação reticular mesencefálica. 3 — A formação reticular mesencefálica ativa preferencialmente o hemisfério cerebral homolateral; o contingente cruzado talvez seja mobilizado somente quando estímulos alertantes intensos atingem o tegmento mesencefálico. 4 — Além da formação reticular mesencefálica deve haver outros mecanismos ativadores corticais, visto que, em preparações agudas de cérebro isolado, observamos: a surtos de curta duração de atividade dessincronizada; b oscilações freqüentes do ECoG durante o registro

    The reduction of iodine by hydrogen peroxide is an important process which leads to a lower amount of molecular iodine in irradiated solutions of iodide as the pH is increased. There is quite a large amount of information on the reaction now but no consensus in the literature on the mechanisms for reaction and the generally accepted mechanism does not appear to be correct. A number of studies of the kinetics of the reaction in the pH range 2-7 have been carried out where the iodine reduction process exhibited a 1/[H{sup +}]{sup 2} dependence consistent with the proposed mechanism which were attributed primarily to the reaction of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} with IO{sup -}. Deviations were observed in the pH range 6-7 and were explained by incorporating the reaction of I{sub 2}OH{sup -} with H{sub 2}O{sub 2}. In some other experiments it was suggested that the failure to maintain a 1/[H{sup +}]{sup 2} dependence at high pH was due to the iodine hydrolysis being rate determining. Data from an experimental program performed at AECL described in this paper confirms that the 1/[H{sup +}]{sup 2} dependence does not hold at high pH. These studies were carried out as a function of acid, iodide, peroxide and buffer concentration for three buffers, barbital, citrate and phosphate. This paper discuss two mechanisms which involve the formation of an HOOI intermediate in the rate determining step and which adequately describe the experimental data.

Se ha detectado un 41,2% de casos positivos (40,8% de animales y 52,6% de cebos. En los carnívoros domésticos la detección del tóxico llegó al 71,4%, lo que indica su utilidad como centinelas del uso de veneno en el medio natural. El 78,3% de los animales que fueron positivos a los análisis toxicológicos han sido considerados como intoxicaciones intencionadas. Las aves rapaces diurnas fueron el grupo más afectado por las intoxicaciones (43,6% del total de animales positivos, seguido de los mamíferos carnívoros (27,1%. Los tóxicos más frecuentemente detectados fueron insecticidas anticolinesterásicos (cebos/animales: 80,4%/65,8%, seguidos de rodenticidas anticoagulantes (5%/19,6%, estricnina (2,2%/6,5% y arsénico (4,5%/2,3%. De las diferencias observadas entre CCAA destaca la preponderancia en el uso de estricnina en Asturias, rodenticidas anticoagulantes en Castilla y León, insecticidas organofosforados en Aragón, insecticidas carbamatos en Castilla-La Mancha y Madrid, y la aparición de otros venenos, como á-cloralosa o barbitúricos, en Cataluña. En resumen, el 82,3% de las intoxicaciones intencionadas fueron debidas a anticolinesterásicos y el 85,5% de las accidentales a rodenticidas anticoagulantes. En futuras regulaciones de plaguicidas y biocidas se debería tener en cuenta el riesgo del uso ilegal en la preparación de cebos envenenados que comporta la comercialización de formulados con alta riqueza de ingredientes activos con baja DL .

    Full Text Available São analisados os resultados obtidos com o emprego do Mogadon em 68 casos de epilepsia em crianças (34 com síndrome de West, 14 com epilepsia tipo P.M. ausência simples e 20 com formas atípicas de P.M., todos rebeldes aos tratamentos convencionais experimentados em várias combinações, e durante tempo variável, porém quase sempre bastante longo. A maioria dos pacientes apresentava intenso retardamento psicomotor, provavelmente decorrente da longa evolução não controlada da epilepsia. Os resultados foram muito bons no que diz respeito ao controle das crises (100% em 28, 75% em 22, 50% em 10, 25% em um e nulo apenas em 7 casos. O resultado sôbre o desenvolvimento psicomotor foi menos brilhante, pois poucos pacientes melhoraram com o controle das crises. Os efeitos colaterais foram pouco importantes, tendo sido nulos em 41; em 23 foi notada sonolëncia (em dois acompanhada de ataxia; em 4 houve queixa de insônia controlável com barbitúricos. O seguimento após o tratamento variou de 6 a 18 meses.Therapeutic results with Mogadon in 68 children with epilepsy (34 cases of West syndrome, 14 with tipical P.M. seizures, 20 with atypical P.M. seizures resistant to conventional therapy employed previously in various combinations for prolonged periods, is reported. The majority of the patients showed intense psychomotor retardation, probably due to the non-controlled evolution of the cases, before the administration of Mogadon. Results were excellent in regard to the control of the crise's frequency (100% in 28, 75% in 22, 50% in 10, 25% in one, and null in 7 cases. Concerning the psychomotor development the results were less evident. Side effects were negligible, being absent in 41 cases; 23 patients showed somnolence, accompanied by ataxia in two cases. Four patients complained of insomnia, promptly controlled with barbiturates. The period of post-treatment follow-up ranged between 6 and 18 months.

    Date-rape drugs have the potential to be used in drug-facilitated sexual assault, organ theft and property theft. Since they are colorless, tasteless and odorless, victims can drink without noticing, when added to the beverages. These drugs must be detected in time, before they are cleared up from the biofluids. A simultaneous extraction and determination method in urine for GHB, ketamine, norketamine, phenobarbital, thiopental, zolpidem, zopiclone and phenytoin (an anticonvulsant and antiepileptic drug) with LC-MS/MS was developed for the first time with analytically acceptable recoveries and validated. A 4 steps liquid-liquid extraction was applied, using only 1.000mL urine. A new age commercial C18 poroshell column with high column efficiency was used for LC-MS/MS analysis with a fast isocratic elution as 5.5min. A new MS transition were introduced for barbital. 222.7>179.8 with the effect of acetonitrile. Recoveries (%) were between 80.98-99.27 for all analytes, except for GHB which was 71.46. LOD and LOQ values were found in the ranges of 0.59-49.50 and 9.20-80.80ngmL(-1) for all the analytes (except for GHB:3.44 and 6.00μgmL(-1)). HorRat values calculated (between 0.25-1.21), revealed that the inter-day and interanalist precisions (RSD%≤14.54%) acceptable. The simultaneous extraction and determination of these 8 analytes in urine is challenging because of the difficulty arising from the different chemical properties of some. Since the procedure can extract drugs from a wide range of polarity and pKa, it increases the window of detection. Group representatives from barbiturates, z-drugs, ketamine, phenytoin and polar acidic drugs (GHB) have been successfully analyzed in this study with low detection limits. The method is important from the point of determining the combined or single use of these drugs in crimes and finding out the reasons of deaths related to these drugs. PMID:27107852

    Full Text Available A talidomida, descoberta na Alemanha Oriental, em 1954, mostrou vários efeitos terapêuticos: antiemético, sedativo e hipnótico. De 1959 a 1961, foram descritas cerca de 12.000 crianças nascidas com defeitos teratogênicos. Seu uso foi, conseqüentemente, suspenso. Sheskin, entretanto, recomeçou a usar a droga e verificou efeito benéfico no eritema nodoso leprótico. A talidomida é derivada do ácido glutâmico. Sua eliminação urinária é mínima (1%. Tem ações: antiinflamatória, imunomoduladora e antiangiogênica. Tem sido usada, com certo êxito terapêutico, em algumas entidades mais adiante estudadas. O principal efeito adverso é teratogênico: alterações nos membros, orelhas, olhos e órgãos internos. Supõe-se que esses efeitos teratogênicos decorram da ação antiangiogênica. Outros efeitos adversos: cefaléia, secura da pele e da mucosa da boca, prurido, erupção cutânea, aumento de peso, hipotireoidismo, neutropenia, bradicardia ou taquicardia e hipotensão. Interage com outros fármacos: barbitúrico, clorpromazina, reserpina, álcool, acetaminofen, histamina, serotonina e prostaglandina.Thalidomide was discovered in East Germany in 1954. It presented with several therapeutic effects: antiemetic, sedative and hypnotic. From 1959 to 1961, roughly 12,000 children born with teratogenic defects were described. Its use was consequently halted. Sheskin started using the drug again and observed its beneficial effect on erythema nodosa leprosum. Thalidomide is derived from glutamic acid. Its urinary elimination is minimal (1%. It has the following actions: anti-inflammatory, immunomodulary and antiangiogenic. It has been used with a successful therapeutic outcome on some entities, which have been studied further. The main side effect is teratogenic: limb alterations, ears, eyes and internal organs. The teratogenic effects are assumed to result from antiangiogenic action. Other side effects are cephalea, dry skin and mouth

    Thirty-six allyl substituted oxopyrimidine analogues such as barbituric acid (BA), barbiturates, uracil, thymine, and related derivatives including 13 new compounds were synthesized and their pharmacologic effects ([hypnotic activity, anticonvulsant activity against pentylentetrazol (PTZ)-induced seizures, and LD(50)]) and interactions with the barbiturates were evaluated in mice and rats. The results are briefly and parially summarized as follows. BA prolonged pentobarbital (PB)-induced sleep and had some central depressant effects. N,5,5-triallyl-BA exhibited some hypnotic and anticonvulsant activities, although the other 5,N-allyl-compounds did not show any activity except for allobarbital (AlloB). N-allyl-BA, 5-allyl-BA, N(1),N(3),5-triallyl-BA, N,5,5-triallyl-BA, and N(1),N(3),5,5-tetraallyl-BA also prolonged PB-induced sleep. Interestingly, N,5,5-triallyl-BA was the most potent in the interaction with AlloB, phenobarbital (PheB), amobarbital (AB), PB, and thiopental (TP) but not barbital (B). N(1),N(3),5,5-tetraallyl-BA prolonged AlloB-, PB-, and AB-induced sleep but not B-, PheB-, and TP-induced sleep. N(1),N(3),5-triallyl-B prolonged only PB- and TP-induced sleep. 5,5-diallyl-BA prolonged PheB- and TP-induced sleep. N,5-diallyl-BA prolonged only TP-induced sleep. In contrast, BA and N(1),N(3),5-triallyl-AB tended to antagonize AlloB, AB, and B. N(1),N(3),5,5-tetraallyl-BA also slightly antagonized B, PheB, and TP. 5,5-diallyl-BA antagonized only AB. The prolonging effects of BA, N,5,5-triallyl-BA, and N(1),N(3),5,5-tetraallyl-BA on PB-induced sleep were dose dependent. These results indicate that the position and number of allyl groups substituted on the structure of BA play an important role in their depressant activities. This review deals with the structure-activity relationship of allyl-substituted oxopyrimidines as part of our search for antagonists and agonists of barbiturates as well as their mechanisms of action.

    Full Text Available Para êste estudo foram empregados 35 ratos da raça Wistar em preparação aguda (24 com lesão bilateral e 11 com lesão unilateral da formação reticular mesencefálica e 18 preparações crônicas. O método empregado na obtenção das preparações foi descrito em trabalho anterior12. O objetivo desta série de experiências foi o de verificar de que maneira o pentobarbital interfere sobre as características da atividade elétrica cortical após lesão da formação reticular mesencefálica. Para tal, em animais preparados agudamente, foram feitas lesões progressivamente mais extensas e o barbitúrico injetado por via intravenosa em doses crescentes. A fim de testar a integridade do sistema reticular ativador ascendente, além de estímulos dolorosos intensos, aplicávamos pulsos de 5 a 10 V, 100 Hz, e 0,1 ms à formação reticular mesencefálica situada abaixo da região lesada. A ausência de reação de alerta cortical (dessincronização nos assegurava que tal sistema havia sido lesado completamente. Nas preparações crônicas o pentobarbital era injetado por via intraperitoneal. Dessas experiências concluimos o seguinte: 1. Aumento da sincronização do eletrocorticograma nos animais com lesões parciais ou totais da formação reticular mesencefálica. 2. Depressão acentuada e precoce da atividade elétrica cerebral nos ratos com lesão muito extensa (comprometendo também a porção ventrobasal do tálamo. 3. Isocronismo da atividade elétrica cortical nos dois hemisférios cerebrais. 4. O pentobarbital parece agir tanto sobre os sistemas ativadores como sobre o sincronizador do eletrocorticograma. As doses pequenas deprimem os primeiros, liberando o segundo, enquanto que as maiores bloqueiam também este último. Sòmente doses muito mais altas é que fazem desaparecer totalmente a atividade do córtex cerebral, que se mostra, portanto, mais resistente à ação da droga.

Dentre os medicamentos, objeto de abuso e que causam dependência física e/ou psíquica, incluemse os barbitúricos, benzodiazepínicos, analgésicos opióides e anfetaminas. Os analgésicos, antitérmicos e antiinflamatórios não esteroidais, apesar de não fazerem parte dessa relação de fármacos, estão, geralmente, associados ao uso recreativo ou fins não terapêuticos. O objetivo deste ensaio é apresentar informações sobre o uso abusivo de benzidamina no Brasil. Trata-se de um estudo descritivo do tipo exploratório, em que foram utilizadas diferentes estratégias metodológicas adotadas na prática de regulação em farmacovigilância. O uso abusivo desse fármaco foi constatado na literatura científica, imprensa e internet. Em função da facilidade na compra de medicamentos sujeitos à prescrição médica, entre outros fatores, devem-se exigir meios e formas para monitorar a comercialização e utilização de medicamentos, assegurando seu uso seguro e racional, incluindo o fortalecimento da farmacovigilância no Brasil.The abusive drug use has been object of increasing concern in public health and is commonly issued in the Brazilian press.

    Full Text Available A xilazina produz um bom efeito sedativo-analgésico quando associado à drogas anestésicas. O tiopental sódico é um barbitúrico de curta duração que produz sonolência, sedação e hipnose. O objetivo deste trabalho é verificar a eficiência da associação da xilazina como pré-medicação e do tiopental sódico na manutenção da anestesia, em cães. Foram usados 32 cães sem raça definida, adultos, machos e com peso entre 8 e 10 kg, que foram submetidos à procedimento operatório no esôfago cervical. A dose média de xilazina administrada foi de 3,8 mg/kg e de tiopental sódico foi de 7,7 mg/kg. Não houve necessidade de intubação endotraqueal e não ocorreu óbito relacionado com as medicações anestésicas. Concluindo, o procedimento anestésico descrito é de fácil execução, é seguro e diminui o estresse do animal.The xylazine produce reliable sedative-analgesic effect when coadministered with anesthetics drugs. Thiopental sodium is a shorter duration barbituric, produced somnolence, sedation and hypnosis. The aim of this work is to verify the efficiency in association of xylazine and thiopental sodium to anesthesia in dogs. Thirty-two male mongrel dogs with an average weight between 8 and 10 kg were submitted to surgical procedure with approach of cervical aesophagus. The average dose was 3,8 mg/kg to xilazine and 7,7 mg/kg to thiopental sodium. Was not necessary endotracheal intubation and no deaths due anesthesic procedure were observed. The anesthesic procedure described is easy, safe and decreases the stress of the animal.

O eletródio ativo era implantado estereotàxicamente segundo as coordenadas de König e Klippel. As lesões eram feitas parcial ou totalmente, uni ou bilateralmente, e em todos os animais procedeu-se ao controle histológico das áreas lesadas, usando-se o método de Weil. O registro da atividade elétrica cortical foi feito com polígrafo Beckman de 4 canais, utilizando-se derivações bipolares curtas (1mm com eletródios esféricos de platina. As experiências permitiram as seguintes conclusões: 1 — As características eletrofisiológicas dos fusos que ocorrem após lesões da formação reticular mesencefálica são muito semelhantes às dos fusos espontâneos e barbitúricos, inclusive quanto à projeção cortical. Quanto à duração dos potenciais que os constituem, contudo, notamos que a faixa de variação era mais centuada (20 a 80 ms, o que pode ser atribuído à maior complexidade dos potenciais do cérebro isolado, possivelmente pela falta de ação cronadora da formação reticular sobre o sistema sincronizador talâmico. 2 — Os mecanismos envolvidos na gênese dos fusos do sono barbitúrico ou espontâneo e os do cérebro isolado são, pelo menos em parte, dependentes do bloqueio da formação reticular mesencefálica. 3 — A formação reticular mesencefálica ativa preferencialmente o hemisfério cerebral homolateral; o contingente cruzado talvez seja mobilizado somente quando estímulos alertantes intensos atingem o tegmento mesencefálico. 4 — Além da formação reticular mesencefálica deve haver outros mecanismos ativadores corticais, visto que, em preparações agudas de cérebro isolado, observamos: a surtos de curta duração de atividade dessincronizada; b oscilações freqüentes do ECoG durante o registro

  9. Electron beam sterilization of the Agaroze gel used for electrophoresis

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Electron beam sterilization is based on its ability to kill pathogenic microorganisms. It is applied to a broad range of disposable medical products such as syringes, needles, surgical sutures, transplant kits, inhalation and dialysis equipment, blood-handling equipment, wound and burn dressings, gloves, masks, gowns, Petri dishes and pipettes. By this work we intend to extend the EB irradiation to the sterilization of the agarose gel put on plastic plates. Electrophoresis of serum proteins on agarose gel is an important investigation method of variety disproteinemia types, used in clinical laboratory. By this method are separated six proteic fractions: Albumin; Alpha 1 globulin consisting of α1 lipoproteins and α1 antitrypsin; Alpha 2 globulin consisting of α2 macroglobulin and haptoglobin; Beta 1 globulin consisting of transferrin and β lipoprotein; Beta 2 globulin consisting of complement C3; Gamma globulin consisting of immunoglobulins and fibrogen. Agarose is a natural colloid extracted from seaweed. It is very fragile and easily destroyed by handling. Agarose gel can be processed faster than polyacrylamide gels, but the agarose gel is a favorable medium for the microorganisms' development, which is the cause for the degradation of the gel and of the results. Thus, the sterilization of the plates with agarose gels becomes important. A disadvantage is that ionizing radiation degrades some plastic gels above a certain absorbed dose level. In view of this important aspects the sterilization of the agarose gel, which is put on plastic plates, by electron beam irradiation has been studied. Also, the effects of the electron beam irradiation upon the agarose gel and on the process of the proteic fraction separation have been investigated. In the experimental studies are used the plastic plates with 1% agarose gel in Tris-barbital tampon, supplied by DDS DIAGNOSTIC-Romania. The used migration solution is Tris-barbital tampon pH 8.6.

Nessa revisão foram discutidas: a prevenção da dor, as medidas não-farmacológicas e farmacológicas para o seu tratamento e a sedação em recém-nascidos. CONTEÚDO: Várias são as medidas não-farmacológicas que podem ser tomadas com intuito de prevenir a dor nas Unidades de Terapia Intensiva Neonatal e também para tornar o ambiente mais humanizado e menos estressante para os pacientes e seus familiares. O tratamento da dor no recém-nascido consiste em medidas não-farmacológicas (sucção não-nutritiva, glicose e farmacológicas (analgésicos não-opióides, opióides e anestésicos locais. A sedação em recém-nascidos é produzida por fármacos que agem diminuindo a atividade, a ansiedade e a agitação do paciente, podendo levar à amnésia de eventos dolorosos ou não-dolorosos. A sedação pode ser feita pela administração de hidrato de cloral, barbitúricos, propofol e benzodiazepínicos. CONCLUSÕES: A prevenção da dor e a indicação de analgesia devem ser individualizadas e sempre consideradas em todos os recém-nascidos portadores de doenças potencialmente dolorosas e/ou submetidos a procedimentos invasivos, cirúrgicos ou não.JUSTIFICATIVA Y OBJETIVOS: La importancia del estudio del dolor en neonatología se debe al hecho de que la sensación de dolor y de estrés significa sufrimiento e incomodidad para los recién nacidos y, a pesar de ese conocimiento poco se ha hecho para reducirlo.

Desde a síntese dos primeiros anestésicos venosos, com a introdução dos barbitúricos (1921 e do tiopental (1934, a AVT evoluiu até o desenvolvimento da AVT com auxílio de bombas com infusão alvo-controlada (IAC. O primeiro modelo farmacocinético para uso em IAC foi descrito por Schwilden em 1981. Foi demonstrado, a partir daí, que era possível manter a concentração plasmática desejada de um fármaco utilizando-se bomba de infusão gerenciada por computador. CONTEÚDO: Este artigo visou a descrever as bases teóricas da IAC, a apresentar uma proposta de desenvolvimento de um vocabulário comum em IAC ainda não publicado no Brasil e a fazer uma análise crítica dos aspectos atuais da IAC no mundo e no Brasil. CONCLUSÕES: A chegada de novas bombas de infusão dotadas dos modelos farmacocinéticos do remifentanil, sufentanil e propofol inaugura outro capítulo da AVT e alinha o Brasil com a tendência mundial em IAC. Esses sistemas possibilitarão a IAC de hipnóticos e opióides concomitantemente. A conclusão mais importante, no entanto, refere-se à economia à medida que os fármacos utilizados nessas bombas não ficarão restritos apenas a uma empresa farmacêutica, a exemplo do que ocorreu com o propofol. Hoje já se dispõe de equipamentos para utilização de propofol e opióides, em IAC, que aceitam qualquer apresentação farmacêutica com a vantagem da possibilidade de alteração da concentração do fármaco na seringa, de acordo com a diluição desejada.JUSTIFICATIVA Y OBJETIVOS: La anestesia venosa total (AVT tuvo diversos avances desde el inicio de la utilización de la técnica.

    Full Text Available El dolor central y el dolor periférico por desaferentización son de difícil tratamiento incluso con fármacos de última generación. La estimulación eléctrica sobre diversas estructuras ha demostrado en general ser poco efectiva. La estimulación sobre la corteza motora es una técnica relativamente nueva que parece ofrecer resultados prometedores en estos cuadros. Aunque desde el punto de vista quirúrgico es una técnica sencilla, no lo es tanto la localización adecuada de la corteza motora, lo cual es una condición importante para su efectividad. En este trabajo ofrecemos una revisión bibliográfica sobre ella. Sus indicaciones fundamentales actualmente son el dolor central fundamentalmente talámico, y el dolor trigeminal por desaferentización. La respuesta a barbitúricos sin respuesta a opioides, la conservación relativa de las vías motoras y sensitivas, y la respuesta a la estimulación magnética transcraneal predicen un buen resultado. Diversos métodos son utilizados para determinar la zona a estimular: PESS, estimulación intraoperatoria, neuronavegación, RNM funcional. Los parámetros de estimulación recomendados varían de unos autores a otros. Su mecanismo de actuación no es en la actualidad bien conocido aunque las teorías más aceptadas son la activación de zonas que modulan el dolor y la inhibición de la transmisión de los estímulos nociceptivos a nivel medular.Central pain and peripheral pain caused by desafferentation are difficult to treat even with last generation drugs. Electric stimulation of several structures has shown to be scarcely effective in general. Stimulation of motor cortex is a relatively new technique that seems to offer promising results in these disorders.

    Full Text Available Para êste estudo foram empregados 35 ratos da raça Wistar em preparação aguda (24 com lesão bilateral e 11 com lesão unilateral da formação reticular mesencefálica e 18 preparações crônicas. O método empregado na obtenção das preparações foi descrito em trabalho anterior12. O objetivo desta série de experiências foi o de verificar de que maneira o pentobarbital interfere sobre as características da atividade elétrica cortical após lesão da formação reticular mesencefálica. Para tal, em animais preparados agudamente, foram feitas lesões progressivamente mais extensas e o barbitúrico injetado por via intravenosa em doses crescentes. A fim de testar a integridade do sistema reticular ativador ascendente, além de estímulos dolorosos intensos, aplicávamos pulsos de 5 a 10 V, 100 Hz, e 0,1 ms à formação reticular mesencefálica situada abaixo da região lesada. A ausência de reação de alerta cortical (dessincronização nos assegurava que tal sistema havia sido lesado completamente. Nas preparações crônicas o pentobarbital era injetado por via intraperitoneal. Dessas experiências concluimos o seguinte: 1. Aumento da sincronização do eletrocorticograma nos animais com lesões parciais ou totais da formação reticular mesencefálica. 2. Depressão acentuada e precoce da atividade elétrica cerebral nos ratos com lesão muito extensa (comprometendo também a porção ventrobasal do tálamo. 3. Isocronismo da atividade elétrica cortical nos dois hemisférios cerebrais. 4. O pentobarbital parece agir tanto sobre os sistemas ativadores como sobre o sincronizador do eletrocorticograma. As doses pequenas deprimem os primeiros, liberando o segundo, enquanto que as maiores bloqueiam também este último. Sòmente doses muito mais altas é que fazem desaparecer totalmente a atividade do córtex cerebral, que se mostra, portanto, mais resistente à ação da droga.This study was performed on 35 albino rats prepared for

    Objective To explore the status and significance of benign infantile convulsion with mild gastroenteritis ( BICE) in the spectrum of infantile convulsion with acute diarrhea. Methods One hundred and eighty - four cases of convulsion with acute diarrhea treated in our hospital from 2009 to 2011 were analyzed retrospectively. Results Among the 184 cases of convulsion with acute diarrhea, there were 58 cases of BICE, 49 cases of febrile seizures, 43 cases of epilepsy, 19 cases of viral encephalitis, 6 cases of hyponatremic encephalopathy, 5 cases of hypernatremic encephalopathy, 2 cases of toxic encephalopathy and 2 cases of hypocalcemie seizures. The average age of children with BICE was (17.47 ±7.90) months. The symptoms were generally mild with little or no signs of dehydration. The seizure occurred mostly during the first two days of the illness and was brief in a tetanic or clonic form. Positive rotavirus antigens were detected in 65.52% . There were no abnormal findings in the routine blood test, blood bioche-mistry, cerebrospinal fluid, cerebral computerized tomography/magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalogram examinations. After hospitalization, the children were given fluids intravenously. Sodium pheno-barbital was administered after the first convulsion and if seizures recurred, diazepam was given intravenously. All children were fully recovered in 2 to 5 days after hospitalization. Conclusions BICE occurs frequently in the infantile convulsion with acute diarrhea and symptomatic treatment is sufficient in patient care. Thus, unnecessary medical tests and excessive treatment should be avoided.%目的 探讨轻度胃肠炎伴婴幼儿良性惊厥(BICE)在婴幼儿急性腹泻伴惊厥疾病谱中的地位及意义.方法 对2009-2011年收治的急性腹泻并有惊厥症状患儿的住院资料进行回顾性分析.结果 184例急性腹泻伴惊厥的病例中,轻度胃肠炎伴婴幼儿良性惊厥58例、热性惊厥49例、癫(痫)43

    Full Text Available OBJETIVOS: São revistos os principais conceitos envolvidos na abordagem terapêutica da hipertensão endocraniana, desde a abordagem tradicional até a apresentação das novas terapias preconizadas. FONTES DOS DADOS: Foram revistas as principais bases de dados da literatura médica, particularmente o Medline e o Lilacs, nos últimos 10 anos, além de livros textos consagrados e teses dedicadas ao assunto. SÍNTESE DOS DADOS: A hipertensão endocraniana pode estar associada a diversas lesões neurológicas cerebrais, sejam de origem traumática, infecciosa ou metabólica, podendo, nos casos graves, se constituir em importante fator de morbimortalidade. O aumento da pressão intracraniana interfere com o fluxo sangüíneo cerebral, de modo que para se manter uma pressão de perfusão cerebral adequada, é necessário tanto a redução e o controle da hipertensão endocraniana, como o combate agressivo à hipotensão arterial, desde as fases iniciais do atendimento. A monitorização adequada é fundamental, e as principais medidas adotadas no tratamento convencional envolvem a elevação da cabeceira do leito a 30 graus, o posicionamento centrado da cabeça, a hipocapnia otimizada, o perfeito equilíbrio hidroeletrolítico e metabólico, a sedação, a terapia anticonvulsiva, a drenagem liquórica, o uso de barbitúricos, manitol e furosemida. As novas terapias que vêm sendo estudadas incluem, principalmente, o dexanabinol, as soluções salinas hipertônicas, a hipotermia moderada, a craniotomia descompressiva, a otimização da pressão de perfusão cerebral e a redução da pressão na microvasculatura cerebral (terapia de Lund. CONCLUSÕES: O uso de novas terapias para o controle eficaz da hipertensão endocraniana, particularmente em casos refratários ao tratamento usual, representam um cenário promissor na abordagem destes quadros.OBJECTIVE: The main concepts involved in the therapeutic management of intracranial hypertension are

  5. Comparison of [131I]-Tyr3-octreotate and [131I]DOTA-Tyr3-octreotate: the effect of DOTA on the pharmacokinetics and stability

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The introduction of radiolabeled somatostatin analogs for peptide receptor imaging and therapy of neuroendocrine cancer have become a primary focus of interest in nuclear medicine. In this work we studied the possibility of preparing radioiodinated octreotate derivatives, with high stability and favourable kinetic in vivo, because 131I-iodide is most frequently used in therapeutic nuclear medicine and aviable. We studied molar peptide to radionuclide ratio in order to obtain the mono-iodinated peptide (di-iodinated no longer binds to the somatostatin receptor). Like other radioiodinated proteins labeled on constituent tyrosine residues, it was important to study the possibility of dehalogenation in vivo. Despite DOTA chelating group was not necessary to the radioiodination procedure, we intended to evaluate the influence of the chelating group on the pharmacokinetic and the in vivo stability of the labeled peptide. 131I radiolabeling of Tyr3-octreotate and DOTA-Tyr3-octreotate was performed using Chloramine T method. A solution of 10 μg of peptide/40 μL of PBS (0.05M phosphate-buffered saline pH 7.5) was transferred to an Eppendorf cap. After addition of 10 μL (74 MBq) radioiodine and 5 μL of chloramine T solution (1mg/mL PBS), the cap was carefully stirred and the labeling reaction was allowed to proceed for 3 minutes at room temperature; 5 μL of sodium methabisulfite solution (2mg/mL PBS) was introduced as reducing agent. Radiochemical purity was determined by HPLC (Waters) using a RP C18 column (4.2 x 50 mm, 5 μm, Waters) with UV (230 nm) and radioactivity (Packard Canberra) detection, flow rate of 0.5 mL/minute with a linear gradient of 40-80% (v/v) methanol in 50 mM sodium acetate buffer (pH 5.5) for 20 minutes, maintained for another 25 minutes. Free radioiodine was also determined by horizontal zone electrophoresis (Amershan Pharmacia) on Whatman 1 paper, 0.05M barbital buffer, pH 8.6, 300V, 40 minutes. The stability of the compounds were evaluated

Se ha descrito sobre todo en hijos de madres consumidoras de heroína o metadona durante el embarazo, pero no tras tratamiento prolongado con fentanilo. Con este caso señalamos un efecto poco descrito de un fármaco cada vez más empleado en el tratamiento del dolor crónico severo. Aunque deberían realizarse más estudios, consideramos que el FT podría ser utilizado como tratamiento de última línea en casos de dolor crónico severo en mujeres gestantes cuando no han sido eficaces los fármacos de los dos escalones inferiores de la escalera analgésica de la OMS.Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid one hundred times more potent than morphine. Its pharmacologic profile makes it a suitable drug for transdermal delivery in patients with severe oncological and non-oncological chronic pain. So far, only one case of neonatal opioid withdrawal syndrome following the use of transdermal fentanyl in a pregnant patient has been reported. A 35 year old patient in her 23rd week of pregnancy presenting severe lumbar pain (VAS 10 irradiated to lower limbs, as a consequence of paraplegia following surgery for scoliosis at the age of 16 and re-intervention for stabilisation arthrodesis at the age of 32, developed an acute episode of pain in the 20th week of pregnancy. Therapy with paracetamol, metamizol, ketorolac, pethidine and morphine chloride was ineffective, and pain was eventually controlled with fentanyl 50 mcg/h plus oral morphine sulphate 5-10 mg for breakthrough pain; this therapy was maintained for the remaining of the pregnancy. Early delivery took place at the 34th week and the newborn showed a syndrome suggestive of withdrawal in the first 24 hours of life. The baby was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit, remaining intubated for six days and requiring decreasing doses of morphine chloride until discharge in the 18th

    objetivo avaliar o perfil oxidativo, eritrograma e interação mineral em cordeiros com anemia verminótica suplementados com diferentes formas de ferro oral. Foram utilizados 27 cordeiros com idade entre 6 e 8 meses naturalmente infectados por Haemonchus contortus, apresentando volume globular entre 16 e 18%. Os animais foram divididos em três grupos; Grupo controle (GC n= 9, Grupo Sulfato ferroso (G2 n= 9 e Grupo Sulfato férrico (G3 n= 9. Os animais do G2 receberam via oral, diariamente 1 grama de sulfato ferroso (Fe+2, equivalente a 200 miligramas de ferro, os animais do G3 receberam 1 grama de sulfato férrico (Fe+3 via oral, diariamente, equivalente a 200 miligramas de ferro, os animais do GC não receberam tratamento. As coletas foram realizadas nos dias 0, 7, 14, 21 e 28 do experimento, e durante quatro dias dois animais de cada grupo foram mantidos em gaiolas metabólicas para mensuração da excreção fecal de minerais. Não houve diferença entre os grupos nos valores de ferro sérico e parâmetros de eritrócitos do sangue. Os valores de cobre e zinco sérico foram inferiores nos G2 e G3 nos dias 21 e 28 do experimento, enquanto que a excreção fecal de cobre, ferro e zinco foram superiores nesses mesmos grupos. Os teores da superoxido desmutase (SOD foram inferiores nos G2 e G3 no dia 28 enquanto que os teores dos grupos tióis protéicos (NPTH foram menores nos G2 e G3 nos dias 21 e 28. Os valores de espécies reativas ao ácido tio-barbitúrico (TBARS foram maiores no dia 28 nos G2 e G3. A suplementação de 200mg de ferro, independente da sua forma, ferrosa ou férrica, não aumenta a resposta eritrocitária em cordeiros com anemia verminótica. Esses compostos possuem ação antagonista sobre cobre e zinco, diminuindo as concentrações séricas desses minerais e aumentando excreção fecal dos mesmos. Em decorrência da diminuição das concentrações séricas de cobre e zinco houve uma diminuição da atividade da superóxido dismutase causando

    Full Text Available Objetivos: determinar a freqüência de recorrência das crises convulsivas após tratamento com sulfato de magnésio, avaliando o tratamento adotado e o prognóstico materno. Casuística e Métodos: analisaram-se todos os casos de eclâmpsia atendidos no IMIP entre janeiro de 1995 e junho de 1998. Sulfato de magnésio e oxigenoterapia foram administrados para todas as pacientes, interrompendo-se a gravidez após estabilização do quadro clínico. Determinou-se a freqüência de complicações maternas de acordo com a presença ou não de recorrência da crise convulsiva, utilizando-se o teste chi² de associação, a um nível de significância de 5%. Resultados: doze pacientes apresentaram recorrência da eclâmpsia após sulfato de magnésio (10%, repetindo-se então metade da dose de ataque. Em 4 destas verificou-se nova recorrência, administrando-se então diazepam endovenoso. Depois do diazepam, uma paciente ainda teve crises repetidas, sendo então realizada infusão de fenitoína e, posteriormente, indução do coma barbitúrico (tionembutal. Essa paciente foi submetida a tomografia computadorizada, constatando-se hemorragia intracraniana. As complicações maternas foram significativamente mais freqüentes no grupo com recorrência: coma (16,7% versus 0,9%, acidose (50% versus 2,9%, edema agudo de pulmão (16,7% versus 2,9%, hemorragia cerebral (16,7% versus 0% e insuficiência renal aguda (16,7% versus 1,9%. Ocorreram 3 casos de morte materna no grupo com recorrência (25% e 2 no grupo sem recorrência (1,9%. Conclusões: a recorrência da crise convulsiva é pouco freqüente após uso do sulfato de magnésio (10%, porém associa-se a aumento da morbimortalidade materna, requerendo acompanhamento em UTI e realização de tomografia para exclusão de hemorragia cerebral.Purpose: to determine the frequency of recurrence of seizures after anticonvulsant therapy with magnesium sulfate and to evaluate treatment and maternal prognosis

    Full Text Available INTRODUÇÃO: A preocupação suscitada quanto ao consumo de substâncias psicoativas pelos adolescentes tem mobilizado grandes esforços em todo o mundo na produção de conhecimento sobre este fenômeno. Decidiu-se estudar as taxas de prevalência de consumo de substâncias psicoativas de uso lícito e ilícito, sua distribuição por idade, sexo e a idade da primeira experiência com essas substâncias, entre adolescentes escolares do Município de Ribeirão Preto, SP, Brasil. MATERIAL DE MÉTODO: Um questionário devidamente adaptado e submetido a um teste de confiabilidade foi auto-aplicado a uma amostra proporcional de 1.025 adolescentes matriculados na oitava série do primeiro grau e primeiro, segundo e terceiro anos do segundo grau, das escolas públicas e privadas do município estudado. O questionário continha questões sobre o uso de dez classes de substâncias psicoativas, questões demográficas e informações de validação, além de questões de percepção e comportamento intrínseco ao consumo de drogas. RESULTADOS: Da amostra 88,9% consumiram bebidas alcoólicas alguma vez na vida; 37,7% utilizaram o tabaco; 31,1% os solventes; 10,5% os medicamentos; 6,8% a maconha; 2,7% a cocaína; 1,6% os alucinógenos e 0,3% consumiu alguma substância a base de opiácios. As taxas de consumo cresceram com a idade, para todas as substâncias; no entanto, o uso de tabaco e de substâncias ilícitas mostrou uma desaceleração nos anos que compreendem o final da adolescência. Verificou-se que os meninos consumiram mais do que as meninas, exceto para os medicamentos, com as meninas consumindo barbitúricos, anfetaminas e tranqüilizantes em proporções semelhantes ou maiores que os meninos. A idade da primeira experiência mostrou que o acesso às substâncias psicoativas ocorreu em idades bastante precoces. CONCLUSÕES: As substâncias psicoativas, sejam lícitas ou ilícitas, são freqüentemente experimentadas na adolescência, tanto
