Xan th ine oxidase activity in gastric juice of alcoholics was significantly higher compared with the control group. Immunge treatment seemed to bring about a trend decrease of xanthine oxidase concen tration but this did not reach a statistical significance.Gastric pH was within normal limit in controls and alcoholic patients either at the entry into the study and at the end.At the entry, as compared to controls whose single values fell within normal range, alcoholic patients had very low free covitamin B excretion percentage although th isdid notde te rmine astatisticallysignif icant difference in the group as a whole.Immunge supplementation for I week reverted to normal this abnormality. Therefore, man is entirely dependent, on dietary sources of cobalamin whose average daily intake is theoretically fold the physiological requirement.Its absorption relies, upon an orderly and multifaceted sequence of events which can he briefly summarized in a gastric stage, intestinal transport and uptake of <a href="http://www.targetmol.com/compound/GS-7340">Targetmol's

However, to the best of our knowledge, the issue of possible interference of ethanol consumption and following free radicals generation in cobalamin absorption has not been further addressed.Indeed, despite some conflicting reports, the involvement of oxygen radicals in ethanol induced gastric injury has been extensively confirmed in in vitro as well as in vivo studies. Further, his enzyme might show an enhanced activity at the upper gastrointestinal mucosa location under a number of local injuries with a following burst of local free radicals generation.Indeed, there is experimental evidence showing a protecting role of xanthine oxidase inhibitors on ethanolinduced gastric: mucosa damage. When investigating in our study any possible ethanolrelated cobalamin absorption abnormality, we preferred not to base it on on spot plasma cobalamin evaluations.Indeed, the unreliability of such determination has been critically pointed out in upto date reviews and very recently low levels have been ob se rved in ahigh pe rcen tageofnun metabolically cobalamindeficient individuals. Interestingly, although the alcoholics showed a normal intrinsic factor secretion in the gastric juice, they exhibited a markedly depressed intrinsic factorcobalamin binding in the ex vivo study.Nonetheless, it has to bo considered that the mechanism of xanthine oxidase The multivitamin tablets and diluted to appropriated volume with the same solvent.The resulting solution was filtered and the filtrate was analyzed on a. Separations of vitamin B from others in the pharmaceutical preparations by HPLC have been reported by various workers using isocratic elution.For vitamin BBB formulations, the ratios between B and the others are in the range: to, and RPHPLC in the isocratic mode could not be used because the chromatographic peaks are not well resolved.In order to solve this problem, gradient elution was applied.
