Phase I Metabolism. These enzymes modify the drug chemically by processes such as oxidation, reduction and hydrolysis or by the removal and addition of an active group. Phase II Metabolism. These include the conjugation of a drug or a phase I metabolite with a polar group to render it possible for excretion. e.g. sulphates and glucuronide.
In general, if a drug has a high first-pass metabolism through the liver one can expect a marked increase in its concentration if it is taken with another drug which inhibits metabolism. Whether or not this change in concentration is clinically significant is related to the factors affecting the concentration-effect relationship.
This may be helpful for drug researchers to choose the most relevant animal species in which the metabolism of a compound can be studied for extrapolating the results to humans. The authors focus on CYPs, which are the main enzymes involved in numerous oxidative reactions and often play a critical role in the metabolism and pharmacokinetics of ...
PK interactions may occur during absorption, metabolism, or elimination of the ARV drug and/or the interacting drug. This table does not include a comprehensive list of all possible mechanisms of interactions for individual ARV drugs (e.g., transporters); however, the table lists the most common mechanisms of known interactions and focuses on ...
Many drugs affect appetite, food absorption, and tissue metabolism (see table). Some drugs (eg, metoclopramide) increase gastrointestinal motility, decreasing food absorption. Other drugs (eg, opioids, anticholinergics) decrease gastrointestinal motility. Some drugs are better tolerated if taken with food.
Pharmacokinetics of Atypical Antipsychotics, including Bioavailability, Half-life and CYP 450 Metabolism.
Drug Metabolism What is mean by : drug metabolism or drug biotransformation. metabolism plays an essential role in the elimination of drugs and other foreign ingested chemicals (xenobiotics) from the body In some cases, especially during oxidative metabolism, numerous chemical procarcinogens form
Urine drug testing is highly reliable, but false positives can rarely occur for some drugs. As always, clinical judgment is necessary when interpreting test results. The length of time a drug can be detected in the urine varies due to several factors, including hydration, dosing, metabolism, body mass, urine pH, duration of use, and a
Since the liver is a major site of drug metabolism, this first-pass effect may reduce the amount of drug reaching the target tissue. In some cases, the first-pass effect results in metabolic activation of an inert pro-drug. 3. Gastric emptying times vary among patients and contribute significantly to
