# Expectations of drug effects based on colours and sizes — The importance of learning

Authors: Ferenc Köteles, Dániel Fodor, Ádám Cziboly and György Bárdos

## Abstract

A considerable proportion of the total effect of a drug can be due to non-specific effects. Important sources of such effects are the expectations evoked by the look-and-feel of the curatives. In this study the origin of these expectations was examined. 109 female university students completed two paper-and-pencil tests about expected connections among look-and-feel of curatives and their effects, and about personal drug experiences. Significant preferences in perceptual characteristics were found in 10 drug effects out of 19. In 5 cases out of the 10 preferred tablets, the preferences were partly explainable by previous experiences of participants. Although direct learning as a source of tablet colour preferences is an obvious assumption, there has not been any research in this area. Possible consequences of changing drug expectations by direct learning are discussed and several health psychological conclusions are drawn.

# Kinetics of fumonisin B 1 in pigs and persistence in tissues after ingestion of a diet containing a high fumonisin concentration

Authors: Judit Szabó-Fodor, László Kametler, Roland Pósa, Rene Mamet, Veronika Rajli, Johann Bauer, Péter Horn, Ferenc Kovács and Melinda Kovács

The absorption, distribution and elimination of fumonisin B 1 (FB 1 ) and its metabolites was investigated in pigs. For the determination of the absorption and biotransformation of FB 1 , T-cannula were implanted into the distal part of experimental pigs’ ileum and the total urine and faeces moiety was collected during the toxin feeding (45 mg FB 1 /kg diet, duration: 10 days) and in the subsequent elimination period (10 days). At the end of trial several organs, muscle and fat samples were also collected. The accumulative absorption of fumonisin B 1 was 4%. In the chymus, the FB 1 conversion to aminopentol (totally hydrolysed FB 1 ; AP 1 ) and partially hydrolysed FB 1 (PHFB 1 ) was 1% and 3.9%, respectively. Derivatives of FB 1 were mostly accumulated in the liver and kidney, while in negligible concentration could be detected in the muscle and fat samples. In the organs the efficacy of the FB 1 to AP 1 and PHFB 1 conversion was 30% and 20%, respectively. In the faecal content the main hydrolised product was PHFB 1 (47%), with 12% of AP 1 . 1.5% of the FB 1 quantity taken up was excreted with the urine, about 35% in hydrolyzed form. Detectable amounts of FB 1 and its metabolites were measured in most of the organs, in faeces and urine even 10 days after the feeding of the noncontaminated diet. As a general conclusion, the intestinal microbiota of pigs is able to transform the intact FB 1 to a similarly toxic substance (partially hydrolyzed FB 1 ) or to a more toxic metabolite (aminopentol).
