Substances isolated after cultivation of a microorganism belonging to the genus Aspergillus in a culture medium comprise a compound designated MSD803 which has the lactone structure: ##STR1## as well as its free hydroxy acid form. Together with salts and esters of the free acid form, these compounds ...
6(R)-[2-(8'-acyloxy-2'-methyl-6'-methyl (or hydrogen)-polyhydronaphthyl-1')-ethyl]-4 (R)-hydroxy-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2H-pyran-2-ones are prepared by acylation of the corresponding 8'-hydroxy compounds. The products are strong inhibitors of the biosynthesis of cholesterol.
The present invention relates to a pharmaceutical composition intended for contacting with a physiological liquid characterized in that said composition is intended to be administered as a non-gelled liquid form and is intended to gel in situ, this composition containing at least one polysaccharide ...
6(R)-[2-(8'-acyloxy-2'-methyl-6'-methyl (or hydrogen)-polyhydronaphthyl-1')-ethyl]-4(R)-hydroxy-3,4,5,6-tetrahydro-2H- pyran-2-ones are prepared by acylation of the corresponding 8'-hydroxy compounds. The products are strong inhibitors of the biosynthesis of cholesterol.
A sustained release indomethacin pharmaceutical product is provided that utilizes a pellet formulation encapsulated in a hard gelatin capsule. A portion of the pellets is uncoated for immediate and rapid release of indomethacin for elevating the plasma level. The remainder of the pellets are coated ...
6-Phenyl-, phenylalkyl- and phenylethenyl-4-hydroxytetrahydropyran-2-ones in the 4(R)-trans stereoisomeric forms are potent inhibitors of cholesterol synthesis by virtue of their ability to inhibit the enzyme, 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase.
Substituted imidazo[4,5-b]pyridines of structural formula: ##STR1## are angiotensin II antagonists useful in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure.
A dual chambered vial is equipt with a dislodgeable stopper device between the two chambers, whereby components of a mixture may be maintained in separate chambers until comingling is desired. The stopper is dislodged by means of a plunger activated by depression of flexible walls of one chamber.
Substituted quinazolinones of the formula are useful as neurotensin antagonists. ##STR1##
Acidic brain fibroblast growth factor isolated from bovine brain, is purified by a particular combination of protein purification techniques. The product is useful in the promotion of cell division (mitogenesis) such as in the promotion of wound healing.
