 Synonyms & Historicals
Tetracyclines .
Antibiotics, Tetracycline .
Tetracycline Antibiotics .
Closely congeneric derivatives of the polycyclic naphthacenecarboxamide. (Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1117) .
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitors .
Monoamine Oxidase Inhibitor .
RIMA (Reversible Inhibitor of Monoamine Oxidase A) .
Reversible Inhibitor of Monoamine Oxidase .
Inhibitor, Monoamine Oxidase .
Inhibitors, MAO .
Inhibitors, Monoamine Oxidase .
MAO Inhibitors .
Reversible Inhibitors of Monoamine Oxidase .
A chemically heterogeneous group of drugs that have in common the ability to block oxidative deamination of naturally occurring monoamines. (From Gilman, et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p414) .
Hydroxychloroquine .
Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate .
Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate (1:1) Salt .
Plaquenil .
Hydroxychlorochin .
Oxychlorochin .
Oxychloroquine .
A chemotherapeutic agent that acts against erythrocytic forms of malarial parasites. Hydroxychloroquine appears to concentrate in food vacuoles of affected protozoa. It inhibits plasmodial heme polymerase. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p970) .
Anesthetics, Dissociative .
Dissociative Anesthetics .
Intravenous anesthetics that induce a state of sedation, immobility, amnesia, and marked analgesia. Subjects may experience a strong feeling of dissociation from the environment. The condition produced is similar to NEUROLEPTANALGESIA, but is brought about by the administration of a single drug. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed) .
Corticosterone .
An adrenocortical steroid that has modest but significant activities as a mineralocorticoid and a glucocorticoid. (From Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p1437) .
Glucagon .
Glucagon (1-29) .
Glukagon .
HG-Factor .
Hyperglycemic-Glycogenolytic Factor .
Proglucagon (33-61) .
HG Factor .
Hyperglycemic Glycogenolytic Factor .
A 29-amino acid pancreatic peptide derived from proglucagon which is also the precursor of intestinal GLUCAGON-LIKE PEPTIDES. Glucagon is secreted by PANCREATIC ALPHA CELLS and plays an important role in regulation of BLOOD GLUCOSE concentration, ketone metabolism, and several other biochemical and physiological processes. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1511) .
Rifampin .
Benemycin .
Rifadin .
Rimactan .
Rimactane .
Tubocin .
Rifampicin .
A semisynthetic antibiotic produced from Streptomyces mediterranei. It has a broad antibacterial spectrum, including activity against several forms of Mycobacterium. In susceptible organisms it inhibits DNA-dependent RNA polymerase activity by forming a stable complex with the enzyme. It thus suppresses the initiation of RNA synthesis. Rifampin is bactericidal, and acts on both intracellular and extracellular organisms. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p1160) .
Amiloride .
Amidal .
Amiduret Trom .
Amiloberag .
Amiloride Hydrochloride .
Amiloride Hydrochloride, Anhydrous .
Kaluril .
Midamor .
Midoride .
Modamide .
Anhydrous Amiloride Hydrochloride .
Hydrochloride, Amiloride .
Hydrochloride, Anhydrous Amiloride .
Trom, Amiduret .
A pyrazine compound inhibiting SODIUM reabsorption through SODIUM CHANNELS in renal EPITHELIAL CELLS. This inhibition creates a negative potential in the luminal membranes of principal cells, located in the distal convoluted tubule and collecting duct. Negative potential reduces secretion of potassium and hydrogen ions. Amiloride is used in conjunction with DIURETICS to spare POTASSIUM loss. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 9th ed, p705) .
Anesthetics, Local .
Anesthetics, Topical .
Anesthetics, Conduction Blocking .
Conduction Blocking Anesthetics .
Local Anesthetics .
Anesthetics, Conduction-Blocking .
Conduction-Blocking Anesthetics .
Drugs that block nerve conduction when applied locally to nerve tissue in appropriate concentrations. They act on any part of the nervous system and on every type of nerve fiber. In contact with a nerve trunk, these anesthetics can cause both sensory and motor paralysis in the innervated area. Their action is completely reversible. (From Gilman AG, et. al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed) Nearly all local anesthetics act by reducing the tendency of voltage-dependent sodium channels to activate. .
Kinins .
A generic term used to describe a group of polypeptides with related chemical structures and pharmacological properties that are widely distributed in nature. These peptides are AUTACOIDS that act locally to produce pain, vasodilatation, increased vascular permeability, and the synthesis of prostaglandins. Thus, they comprise a subset of the large number of mediators that contribute to the inflammatory response. (From Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacologic Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed, p588) .
