- Characteristics of the Esophageal Low-Pressure Zone in Healthy Volunteers and Patients With Esophageal Symptoms: Assessment by High-Resolution Manometry. Pohl, Daniel; Ribolsi, Mentore; Savarino, Edoardo; Frühauf, Heiko; Fried, Michael; Castell, Donald O.; Tutuian, Radu // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Oct2008, Vol. 103 Issue 10, p2544
BACKGROUND: Esophageal motility studies in humans have documented a low-pressure zone (LPZ) in the area of transition from striated to smooth muscle. While preliminary studies indicate that a bolus might be retained in this area, the clinical relevance of the LPZ remains unclear. AIM: To...
- Population pharmacokinetics of cisapride in neonates. Odoul, F.; Le Guellec, C.; Henrot, A.; Saliba, E.; Levron, J.; Saux, M.; Paintaud, G.; Autret-Leca, E. // European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology;Nov2002, Vol. 58 Issue 8, p507
Objectives. We conducted a population pharmacokinetic analysis of cisapride in neonates to study whether metabolic immaturity in this population may lead to increased concentrations. Methods. Cisapride was administered orally in 91 neonates at the dose of 0.2 mg/kg four times a day. Plasma...
