Radiation induced cytotoxicity was potentiated by neutralized metoclopramide (nMCA; Neu-Sensamide, Oxigene Inc) when a human lung adenocarcinoma (H2981) transplanted into scid mice and an adeno-type 12 virus induced mouse sarcoma (A12B3) inoculated into CBA mice were exposed in vivo to low dose radiation at single doses of 1 and 2 Gy respectively. However, when the radiation dose was increased to 6, 10 or 18 Gy (single dose) and combined with a single dose nMCA (2 mg/kg), tumor cytotoxicity was not sensitized by the combination treatment. A fractionated dose of ionizing radiation (3 x 1 Gy) in combination with nMCA at a repeated dose of 3 x 10 mg/kg body weight (1 dose/day, i.m.) significantly increased cytotoxicity in H2981 compared with radiation given alone. nMCA alone also had a statistically significant dose dependent cytotoxic effect on H2981 growth when it was administered as repeated doses (8 doses) at 2 mg/kg or 10 mg/kg (1 dose every second day), and a similar result was achieved at 20 mg/kg but not at 2 and 10 mg/kg in the A12B3 tumor. In addition, the tumor volume at the start of treatment was important for the anti-tumor effect of nMCA (i.e. the larger initial tumor volume gave less effect on tumor growth). Taken together, our data propose that the mode of action of nMCA is different from radiation, and hence the two mechanisms are at least additive when in combination with lower radiation doses. The data further suggest that the cytotoxic mechanism is consistent with potentiating apoptosis because low and repeated doses of radiation (1-2 Gy), which are known to increase cytotoxicity by apoptosis, are sensitized by nMCA but not high doses and nMCA has more potent anti-tumor effects against H2981 tumors which have a higher constitutive apoptotic fraction of cells than A12B3.

In recent years, much has been learned about the pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment of gastroesophageal (GE) reflux disease. Mucosal resistance, gastric contents, esophageal acid clearance, gastric emptying, and incompetency of the lower esophageal sphincter are contributing factors to GE reflux. Use of the various diagnostic tests and an overview of current therapy are summarized.

To improve the antiemetic effectiveness of a previously selected short regimen of moderate-dose metoclopramide (MCP), 80 patients were randomized to receive MCP either alone (regimen A) or in combination with low-dose chlorpromazine (CLP) and high-dose hydrocortisone (HDC) (regimen B) with the first course of cisplatin (50 mg/m2). The antiemetic effect was assessed over a 24-hour period only by objective means (duration and volume of vomiting in overnight fasting patients). The response was classified as follows: no emesis (absence of vomiting), partial protection (up to 100 ml of vomiting) and antiemetic failure (more than 100 ml). For regimen A, this study confirms the results previously reported over a 6-hour period. Regimen B provided better emetic control, significantly reducing the prevalence (p = 0.03) and severity (p = 0.02) of emesis, as well as the median volume (p less than 0.006) and duration (p less than 0.02) of vomiting. Except for the higher incidence of sedation, neither limiting nor unexpected toxicities were observed with the multidrug regimen. The male sex and antiemetic regimen B were the only favorable independent prognostic factors recognized by means of a multivariate analysis using a logistic model. This study therefore shows the usefulness of combining a lower dose of MCP and CLP, together with a high-dose HDC in a short regimen, suitable for outpatients receiving moderate-dose cisplatin. The better emesis control in the highly resistant group of female patients warrants further studies and a more aggressive approach.

The effect of metoclopramide, a dopamine blocker, on arginine vasopressin (AVP) secretion was investigated in normal males. After a bolus injection of metoclopramide (10 mg), all subjects (n = 7) demonstrated an increase of 80.3% (from 0.71 +/- 0.12 (Mean +/- S.E.) to 1.28 +/- 0.24 pg/ml, P less than 0.005) in plasma AVP at 15 min. In controls (n = 7) plasma AVP levels did not change after saline injection (2 ml). Because plasma osmolality and blood pressure did not change, the elevation of plasma AVP levels induced by treatment with metoclopramide may be due to its central effect as a dopamine inhibitor. Although plasma AVP levels increased again at 90 and 120 min after a bolus injection of metoclopramide, accompanying falls in blood pressure (4-5%) make the interpretation concerning the contribution of dopamine to AVP secretion in a late phase uncertain. In summary, plasma AVP levels were shown to be significantly increased by a metoclopramide bolus, suggesting that AVP secretion is under tonic inhibition by dopamine.

Recent progress in the treatment of primary headaches has made available specific, effective and safe medications for these disorders, which are widely spread among the general population. One of the negative consequences of this undoubtedly positive progress is the risk of drug-drug interactions. This review is the first in a two-part series on pharmacokinetic drug-drug interactions of headache medications. Part I addresses acute treatments. Part II focuses on prophylactic treatments. The overall aim of this series is to increase the awareness of physicians, either primary care providers or specialists, regarding this topic. Pharmacokinetic drug-drug interactions of major severity involving acute medications are a minority among those reported in literature. The main drug combinations to avoid are: i) NSAIDs plus drugs with a narrow therapeutic range (i.e., digoxin, methotrexate, etc.); ii) sumatriptan, rizatriptan or zolmitriptan plus monoamine oxidase inhibitors; iii) substrates and inhibitors of CYP2D6 (i.e., chlorpromazine, metoclopramide, etc.) and -3A4 (i.e., ergot derivatives, eletriptan, etc.), as well as other substrates or inhibitors of the same CYP isoenzymes. The risk of having clinically significant pharmacokinetic drug-drug interactions seems to be limited in patients with low frequency headaches, but could be higher in chronic headache sufferers with medication overuse.
The half-time of gastric emptying in diabetic subjects was 110 (77-120) min before treatment. At 60 and 90 min, the median value of residual isotope activity was 66.5 (55-83.5) and 55% (43-74.3), respectively. The half-time decreased to 55 min (28.6-115) after 3 wk of treatment with erythromycin and percentages of meal retention in the stomach at 60 and 90 min were 49.9 (38.4-70) and 40.5% (29.7-60), respectively. After taking metoclopramide, the median value of half-time was 67 min (15-115) and percentages of meal retention at 60 and 90 min were 51 (34.5-93.9) and 42% (24-71.2), respectively. When compared with baseline values a significant difference in gastric emptying parameters was found after both erythromycin and metoclopramide. A significant improvement of the total score for gastrointestinal symptoms was observed with both drugs, but this improvement was more pronounced with erythromycin.

We describe 2 patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) for whom the gastric emptying scan (GES) was crucial for determining the correct surgical approach in the therapeutic management of gastrointestinal complaints. Two men, ages 45 and 51 years, were admitted to a university hospital for delayed gastric complications from SCI. Both SCIs were traumatic, and the interval since injury was 18 months for the younger man and 6 months for the older man. Both men lacked voluntary motor and sensory function below the cord level of the lesion and had quadriplegia. Using GES, we measured motility (the cutoff for normal in this laboratory is 37%) and the time at which half the gastric contents were emptied (normal values are 45 +/- 8 min). Both patients had abnormal motility: residuals at 1 hour were above 50%. Half the gastric contents were emptied at 75 and 90 minutes, respectively. The therapeutic value of the GES was demonstrated for both patients, in combination with the history, physical examination, and abdominal radiographic studies. The first patient underwent ileostomy, and the second required a gastrostomy tube and a jejunostomy tube in addition to metoclopramide. The GES is a valuable diagnostic tool with an important role in the surgical management of patients with SCI.

With the removal of cisapride from the U.S. market, practitioners have increasingly used other medications, such as metoclopramide, to treat gastroesophageal reflux in pediatric patients. We describe the case of a neonate who developed methemoglobinemia after receiving metoclopramide at doses slightly above the recommended age-appropriate dosage. Health care providers should be aware of this potentially serious side effect in young infants who receive this medication.
