The effectiveness of several spiroborate ester catalysts was investigated in the asymmetric borane reduction of 2-, 3-, 4-acetylpyridines under different reaction conditions. Highly enantiomerically enriched 1-(2-, 3- and 4-pyridyl)ethanols and 1-(heterocyclic)ethanols were obtained using 1 to 10% catalytic loads of...

A selective inhibitor of thromboxane synthase, Ro 22-3581 has been shown to be a useful tool for investigating the relationship between hyperinsulinemia and obesity. These studies have established that the pharmacologic normalization of the hyperinsulinemia associated with elevated weights in...

The compound 4'-(imidazol-1-yl) acetophenone was demonstrated to be a selective thromboxane (Tx) synthetase inhibitor in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Serum TxB2 concentrations (from clotted blood) were suppressed by 89.1% (p less than 0.001) and 41.2% (p less than 0.01) at...

It has recently been postulated that thromboxane A2 may participate in the pathogenesis of acute myohemoglobinuric experimental acute renal failure. To investigate this further, the effect of selective inhibition of thromboxane synthesis on the course of glycerol-induced acute renal failure...

We assessed the effect of a specific thromboxane synthetase inhibitor (an imidazole derivative) on pulmonary hemodynamics and the concentrations of TxB2 (TxA2), 6-keto-PGF1 alpha (PGI2), and PGF2 in pulmonary lymph and transpulmonary blood samples following intravenous administration of E. coli...
