Ibuprofen and mefenamic acid interfere with the antiplatelet effect of aspirin when added before the latter. The rate of platelet aggregation was reduced by 48·1% and 22·7%, respectively. The other NSAIDs tested did not significantly affect the aspirin antiplatelet effect when exposure was prior to aspirin. None of the nine NSAIDs altered the aspirin effect if administration followed that of aspirin.

Placentas were obtained by informed consent from women delivering normal infants by repeat cesarean section at 38-40 wk gestation. T4 and T3 binding was examined in human placenta. Serum thyroid hormone binding proteins were identified by Western blotting, and their mRNA was examined by RT-PCR. Presence of these proteins in trophoblast was determined by immunocytochemistry and immunofluorescence. Cytosol was progressively purified to reveal additional thyroid hormone binding proteins that were identified by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry. Effects of mefenamic acid on placental deiodination were examined by HPLC.
All trials 1) using randomized or quasi-randomized patient allocation, 2) in preterm infants < 37 weeks gestational age or low-birth-weight infants (< 2500 grams) with symptomatic PDA in the neonatal period (< 28 days) and 3) comparing surgical ligation with medical treatment with cyclooxygenase inhibitors, each used as the initial treatment for closure of PDA.

1. A perforated patch clamp technique was used to study an outward potassium current in freshly dissociated circular smooth muscle cells of the canine jejunum. 2. A voltage-dependent outward current was identified which was highly potassium selective, weakly holding voltage sensitive, increased its open probability at -65 mV, and reached unit open probability at +5 mV. 3. Quinidine (0.1-1 mM) and tetraethylammonium ion (TEA) (10-50 mM), blocked the potassium current in a dose-dependent manner. Blockade of the outward potassium current was accompanied by membrane depolarization which reversed on removal of the blocker from the bathing solution. 4. Mefenamic and flufenamic acids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents in the fenamate group, were potent activators of the current. Activation was accompanied by hyperpolarization of the membrane with a mean shift in the membrane voltage of 22 mV. 5. It was concluded that the outward potassium current is a major regulator of the resting membrane voltage in isolated circular smooth muscle cells of the canine jejunum. Fenamates activated this current with potentially profound effects on cellular excitability.
All publications which describe randomised trials of OCP for the treatment of menorrhagia were obtained using the search strategy developed by the Menstrual Disorders Group.
Alpha-adrenergic agents contract vascular smooth muscle (VSM) and stimulate endothelial release of secondary factors which modulate VSM contraction. Our study examined constrictor prostanoid (cPN) and nitric oxide (NO) as secondary factors which could alter alpha-1 adrenoceptor-mediated contraction during sepsis.

The European Union has regulated the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in animal production and requires its member states to detect their residues in different matrices. In this work, a detailed MS and MS/MS study by ion-trap mass spectrometry of fourteen NSAIDs is described. Two multi-residue reversed-phase LC/ESI-MS/MS methods were developed, one for the determination of salicylic acid, naproxen, carprofen, flurbiprofen, ibuprofen, niflumic acid and meclofenamic acid in the negative ion mode, and the other for the determination of ketoprofen, suxibutazone, diclofenac, mefenamic acid, tolfenamic acid, phenylbutazone and its metabolite oxyphenbutazone in the positive ion mode. It was thus possible to confirm up to 14 different NSAID residues in serum and plasma samples of farmed animals, after chromatographic separation by a linear gradient. These substances were chosen as representative of different chemical subclasses of NSAIDs. The two methods were also validated in-house at three contamination levels, evaluating specificity and calculating mean recoveries, repeatability and within-laboratory reproducibility. The MS/MS product ion spectra were successfully used for the qualitative identification of all the drugs tested. All the NSAIDs, apart from salicylic acid, were recovered in high amounts, ranging between 71.6% and 100.9%.
Surface area and surface energy of pharmaceutical powders are affected by milling and may influence formulation, performance and handling. This study aims to decouple the contribution of surface area and surface energy, and to quantify each of these factors, on cohesion.
This report describes a scoping study conducted in order to establish whether pharmaceutical compounds may be present in UK estuaries. Surface water samples collected from five UK estuaries were analysed for the presence of 14 pharmaceutical compounds selected from the priority lists of the UK Environment Agency and the Oslo and Paris Commission (OSPAR). The pharmaceutical compounds/metabolites clofibric acid, clotrimazole, dextropropoxyphene, diclofenac, ibuprofen, mefenamic acid, propranolol, tamoxifen and trimethoprim were detected at measurable concentrations in the samples collected. The concentrations of erythromycin, lofepramine, paracetamol, sulfamethoxazole and acetyl-sulfamethoxazole were all below the limits of detection of the methods used (between 4 and 20 ng l(-1)). The anti-fungal agent clotrimazole was the most frequently detected at a maximal concentration of 22 ng l(-1) and a median concentration of 7 ng l(-1). The analgesic compound ibuprofen was detected at a maximal concentration of approximately 930 ng l(-1) and a median concentration of 48 ng l(-1), whilst the other pharmaceutical compounds were detected between the limits of detection of the method used and 570 ng l(-1).

Demographic characteristics of the students were similar in the four groups. There was no significant difference in the mean of severity of dysmenorrhea during one cycle before the intervention between the four groups, but the difference was significant during two cycles after the intervention. Fennelin had similar effects as vitagnus on dysmenorrhea. Mefenamic acid had less effect than both the drugs (P <0.05).

Randomized placebo controlled trial.
Thirty-five patients with menorrhagia were treated in a double-blind crossover study with naproxen sodium and mefenamic acid after measurement of their blood loss during control menstrual cycles. Treatment with these compounds reduced the excessive bleeding by an average of 46 and 47% respectively. Drugs in the prostaglandin synthetase inhibitor group are considered to have an important place in the treatment of menorrhagia.

Several classes of anti-inflammatory agents including acetyl-salicylic acid, salicylic acid, flufenamic acid, phenyl-butazone, indometacin, oxyphenyl-butazone, and mefenamic acid were found to be inhibitors of rat liver mitochondrial ATPase in both intact and freeze-ruptured mitochondria. The freeze-ruptured mitochondrial ATPase was found to be Mg2+- and ATP-concentration dependent. The standard uncoupler, 2,4-dinitrophenol, not possessing anti-inflammatory activity, activates the enzyme in both preparations. A number of compounds of various structural classes possessing no anti-inflammatory property in vivo were found to have no inhibitory effect on the enzyme. This inhibition of ATPase by anti-inflammatory agents could be used as an in vitro test method for the primary screening of potential anti-inflammatory agents.
Six novel nickel(II) complexes with the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug mefenamic acid (Hmef) with the nitrogen-donor heterocyclic ligands 2,2'-bipyridine (bipy), 2,2'-bipyridylamine (bipyam), 1,10-phenanthroline (phen), 2,2'-dipyridylketone oxime (Hpko) or pyridine (py) and/or the oxygen-donor ligands CH3OH or H2O were synthesized and characterized by physicochemical and spectroscopic techniques. The crystal structures of [Ni(mef-O)2(bipy)(CH3OH)2] (1), [Ni(mef-O)2(phen)(CH3OH)2] (2), [Ni(mef-O,O')2(bipyam)] (3) and [Ni(mef-O)2(Hpko)2]∙CH3OH (4·CH3OH) were determined by X-ray crystallography. The ability of the complexes to scavenge 1,1-diphenyl-picrylhydrazyl, 2,2'-azinobis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) and hydroxyl radicals was investigated and the in vitro inhibitory activity against soybean lipoxygenase was evaluated; complexes 3 and 4 were the most active compounds. Spectroscopic (UV and fluorescence), electrochemical (cyclic voltammetry) and physicochemical (viscosity measurements) techniques were employed in order to study the binding mode of the complexes to calf-thymus (CT) DNA and to calculate the corresponding binding constants; for all complexes, intercalation was the most possible mode of DNA-binding. The interaction of the complexes with serum albumins was studied by fluorescence emission spectroscopy and the values of the albumin-binding constants were determined.
Co-administration of MEF and RS could induce potential alterations in their pharmacokinetic profiles and anti-inflammatory effects.

The effects of mefenamic acid on both membrane potential and K+ currents in pig urethral myocytes were investigated using patch-clamp techniques (conventional whole-cell, cell-attached, outside-out and inside-out configuration). In the current-clamp mode, mefenamic acid caused a concentration-dependent hyperpolarization, which was inhibited by preapplication of 1 microm glibenclamide. In the voltage-clamp mode, mefenamic acid induced an outward current that was blocked by glibenclamide even in the presence of iberiotoxin (IbTX, 300 nm) at -50 mV. ATP-sensitive K+ channels (KATP channels) could be activated in the same patch by mefenamic acid and levcromakalim, with the same unitary amplitude and the similar opening gating at -50 mV in cell-attached configuration. In outside-out recording, external application of mefenamic acid activated intracellular Ca2+-activated IbTX-sensitive large-conductance K+ channels (BKCa channels). Mefenamic acid (or=100 microm) increased sustained outward currents, diminishing the activity of STOCs. Over the whole voltage range, mefenamic acid caused opposite effects on the membrane currents in the absence and presence of 5 microm glibenclamide. In the presence of 10 mm 4-aminopyridine (4-AP), mefenamic acid only increased the outward currents. These results indicate that mefenamic acid increases the channel activities of two distinct types of K+ channels (i.e. BKCa channels and KATP channels) and decreased 4-AP-sensitive K+ channels in pig urethral myocytes.

Pharmaceuticals are a class of chemicals whose fate in the environment has received increasing attention in the past few years. A quantitative method was developed for the determination of acidic pharmaceuticals (ibuprofen, naproxen, ketoprofen, mefenamic acid, and diclofenac), caffeine and the antibacterial triclosan in wastewater effluent. The compounds were extracted from wastewater samples on Waters Oasis HLB solid-phase extraction columns, derivatized with N,O-bis [Trimethylsilyl] trifluoroacetamide (BSTFA) and analyzed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. Estimated method detection limits ranged from 6 to 45 ng/L based on replicate analyses (n = 10). This method was applied to the analysis of effluent from a wastewater treatment plant and compounds were detected at concentrations of 18-72 ng/L.
