Published Studies Related to Pro-Banthine (Propantheline)
Rapidly dissolving formulations for quick absorption during pain episodes: ibuprofen. [2008.02]
OBJECTIVE: Pain or its associated trauma impairs oral absorption of drugs due, perhaps, to a diminished disintegration and dissolution rate secondary to suppression of the vagal nervous system. We first examined whether ibuprofen absorption is impaired on suppressing vagus nerve activity in a rat model. Secondly, we examined if ibuprofen absorption in rats during vagal suppression and in humans experiencing dental pain is improved by enhancing disintegration and dissolution rate of the administered formulation... CONCLUSION: Impaired drug absorption appears to be due to slow disintegration and dissolution encountered during pain episodes.
Desirable pharmacokinetic properties of (13)C-uracil as a breath test probe of gastric emptying in comparison with (13)C-acetate and (13)C-octanoate in rats. 
CONCLUSIONS: This study showed that (13)C-uracil has desirable pharmacokinetic properties as an in vivo probe of gastric emptying. It is thus suggested that the (13)C-uracil breath test may be useful for the measurement of gastric emptying in humans.
The effectiveness of intravesical oxybutynin, propantheline, and capsaicin in the management of neuropathic bladder following spinal cord injury. [2007.10.22]
The objective of this study was to compare the therapeutic response of intravesical oxybutynin, propantheline, and capsaicin in the treatment of neurogenic detrusor overactivity. Carried out in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at a university teaching hospital in India, patients acted as their own controls...
Prophylaxis of mucosal toxicity by oral propantheline and cryotherapy in children with malignancies undergoing myeloablative chemo-radiotherapy. [2006.12]
Mucosal toxicity is an incapacitating complication of intensive chemo-radiotherapy for children with malignant disorders, and is physically and psychologically distressful... Therefore, the combination of propantheline and oral cryotherapy may be feasible and effective for reduction of mucosal toxicity in patients with malignancy who undergo high-dose chemotherapy.
Clinical Trials Related to Pro-Banthine (Propantheline)
A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Study to Assess the Efficacy of Propantheline for the Treatment of Overactive Bladder [Recruiting]
It's a double blind, placebo controlled study to assess the efficacy of Propantheline
Bromide to treat overactive bladder (OAB) in HTLV 1 infected patients.
We think that the treatment of the OAB with Propantheline could reduce nocturia and
frequency in sixty percent.
Compare the Therapeutic Effect Treated With Tamsulosin and Progesterone After ESWL( Extra Corporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy) in Urinary Calculus [Recruiting]
The purpose of this study is to compare the stone clearance rate treated with different
drugs after ESWL in urinary calculus,These drugs are often used in urinary calculus,such as
progesterone,tamsulosin,propantheline Bromide and nifedipine. In these study the
investigators want to investigate different effect of these drugs use to treat urinary
calculus after ESWL.
