  1. 1. Development and Evaluation of Nonparametric Mixed Effects Models

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Paul Baverel; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nonparametric; model; pharmacometrics; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamic; imprecision; covariate analysis; parameter distribution; SOCIAL SCIENCES Statistics; computer and systems science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Statistik; data- och systemvetenskap; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical pharmacology; FARMACI Farmaceutisk farmakologi; Biopharmaceutics; Biofarmaci; Clinical Pharmacology; Klinisk farmakologi; Computer Systems; Datorteknik; Farmakologi; Pharmacology; Statistics; Statistik;

    Abstract : A nonparametric population approach is now accessible to a more comprehensive network of modelers given its recent implementation into the popular NONMEM application, previously limited in scope by standard parametric approaches for the analysis of pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic data. The aim of this thesis was to assess the relative merits and downsides of nonparametric models in a nonlinear mixed effects framework in comparison with a set of parametric models developed in NONMEM based on real datasets and when applied to simple experimental settings, and to develop new diagnostic tools adapted to nonparametric models.

  2. 2. Development of Methods for Assessing Unbound Drug Exposure in the Brain In vivo, in vitro and in silico

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Markus Fridén; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood-brain barrier; Drug transport; Tissue distribution; Transporters; Pharmacokinetics; PHARMACY Other pharmacy; FARMACI Övrig farmaci; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; PHARMACY Pharmaceutical pharmacology; FARMACI Farmaceutisk farmakologi; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi;

    Abstract : The blood-brain barrier is formed by tightly joined capillary cells with transporter proteins and acts as to regulate the brain concentration of nutrients as well as many drugs. When developing central nervous system drugs it is necessary to measure the unbound drug concentration in the brain, i.e. the unbound brain exposure. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Role of Cyclooxygenase-2 in Models of Epilepsy and Traumatic Brain Injury Effects of Selective Cyclooxygenase-2 Inhibitors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tina Kunz; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Controlled cortical contusion injury; fluid percussion injury; limbic seizures; nuclear factor-kappa B; prostaglandin metabolism; TUNEL staining; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; farmaceutisk farmakologi; Pharmaceutical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) catalyses prostaglandin synthesis from arachidonic acid during inflammation. COX-2 is expressed in the normal brain and is induced in neurological disorders. There is evidence that COX-2 is involved in secondary events leading to cell death in the brain. READ MORE

  4. 4. Arachidonic acid metabolism in corneal epithelial cells : Identification of lipoxygenase isoforms

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Maria Liminga; Uppsala universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Cornea; cDNA cloning; lipoxygenase; liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry; organ culture; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; farmaceutisk farmakologi; Pharmaceutical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : The metabolism of arachidonic acid in the human cornea was investigated and compared with the metabolism in cattle and primates. All three species showed significant arachidonic acid metabolism inthe epithelium, whereas the activity in the stroma and the endothelium was low or undetectable. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Role of the Melanocortin System in Linking Energy Homeostasis with Reward Mechanisms

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jonas Lindblom; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutical biosciences; Farmaceutisk biovetenskap; PHARMACY Biopharmacy; FARMACI Biofarmaci; farmaceutisk farmakologi; Pharmaceutical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : There is evidence of a link between peripheral signals of energy homeostasis and reward mechanisms. A hypothesis was formulated that the melanocortin (MC) system is part of this link. The hypothesis was tested by a series of receptor expression and neurochemical studies in rats. READ MORE
