  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Piperaquine - Bioanalys, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborg University

    Author : Joel Tärning; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Piperaquine; malaria; Plasmodium falciparum; antimalarials; ACT; pharmacokinetics; NONMEM; population pharmacokinetics; NCA; bioavailability; enterohepatic circulation; metabolism; metabolites; animal models; bioanalysis; regression models; validation; HPLC; LC-MS MS; H-NMR; FTICR-MS;

    Abstract : Malaria is one of the most abundant parasitic diseases in the world affecting many of the poorest economies. The estimated prevalence is 300 to 700 million clinical episodes each year with up to 3 million deaths. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Personalized Cancer Therapy New Diagnostic Biomarkers and Radiosensitization Strategies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Diana Spiegelberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tumor targeting; radionuclide targeting; HSP90 inhibition; AT13387; radiosensitization; molecular imaging; combination treatment; EGFR; CD44v6; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the evaluation of biomarkers for radio-immunodiagnostics and radio-immunotherapy and on radiosensitization strategies after HSP90 inhibition, as a step towards more personalized cancer medicine. There is a need to develop new tracers that target cancer-specific biomarkers to improve diagnostic imaging, as well as to combine treatment strategies to potentiate synergistic effects. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pericyte Influence on Drug Delivery Across the Blood-Brain Barrier Implications for Therapy of Neurodegenerative Diseases

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nebojsa Mihajlica; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Blood-brain barrier; pericytes; pericyte-deficiency; pharmacokinetics; small-molecular drugs; drug distribution; transporters; P-glycoprotein; tyrosine kinase inhibitors; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy;

    Abstract : The blood-brain barrier (BBB) represents a complex interface between the brain parenchyma and systemic blood circulation, strictly controlling exchange of substances between the two sites. Pericytes are mural cells located on the abluminal membrane of the brain endothelium, involved in BBB formation and maintenance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling and Simulation to Improve Antimalarial Therapy

    University dissertation from Upppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jesmin Permala Lohy Das; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacometrics; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; malaria; artemisinin; weekly dosing; resistant; pregnant populations; intermittent preventive therapy; parasite clearance; day 3 positivity; nomogram; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi;

    Abstract : The introduction of artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) substantially reduced malaria-related mortality and morbidity during the past decade. Despite the widespread use of ACT, there is still a considerable knowledge gap with regards to safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetic properties of these drugs, particularly in vulnerable populations like children and pregnant women.
