The Beginning Here we take a much closer look at some current automation concepts and successes that increasingly incorporate A.
Worms[ edit ] Levamisole was originally used as an anthelmintic to treat worm infestations in both humans and animals. Levamisole works as a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist that causes continued stimulation of the parasitic worm muscles, leading to paralysis.
In countries that still permit the use of levamisole, the recommended dose for anthelmintic therapy is a single dose, with a repeated dose 7 days later if needed for a severe hookworm infection.
However, levamisole has also recently gained prominence among aquarists as an effective treatment for Camallanus roundworm infestations in freshwater tropical fish. Evidence from clinical trials support its addition to fluorouracil therapy to benefit patients with colon cancer. In some of the leukemic cell line studies, both levamisole and tetramisole showed similar effect.
Later papers, from the Janssen group and others, indicate levamisole and its enantiomer, dexamisole, have some mood-elevating or antidepressant properties, although this was never a marketed use of the drug.
In particular, neutrophils appear to be affected the most. This occurs in 0. Metabolism[ edit ] Levamisole is readily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and metabolized in the liver.
Its time to peak plasma concentration is 1. The plasma elimination half-life is fairly quick at 3—4 hours which can contribute to not detecting Levamisole intoxication.
The metabolite half-life is 16 hours. Blood samples following oral administration of levamisole out to hr post-dose did not demonstrate any plasma aminorex levels above that of the limit of quantification LoQ. A post mortem blood levamisole concentration of 2.
With the increasing use of levamisole as an adulteranta number of these complications have been reported among cocaine users. Toxicology reports showed levamisole, along with cocaine, was present in DJ AM 's body at the time of his death.
The racemic mixture is referred to as "tetramisole" - levamisole refers only to the levorotatory enantiomer of tetramisole.In , the eminent British scholar of Islam, Sir Hamilton Gibb, wrote: ""The nobility and broad tolerance of this religion [Islam], which accepted all the real religions of the world as God-inspired, will always be a glorious heritage for mankind.
Occasional Papers RAND occasional papers may include an informed perspective on a timely policy issue, a discussion of new research methodologies, essays, a paper presented at a conference, or a summary of work in progress.
