  1. 1. Characterization of parameters influencing intracellular bioavailability and prediction of intracellular drug exposure

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Andrea Treyer; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; intracellular drug bioavailability; unbound drug concentration; drug disposition; ADME; drug transport; drug metabolism membrane partitioning; phospholipid; drug-drug interaction; antisense oligonucleotide; cell-penetrating peptide; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : This thesis work investigates factors influencing intracellular drug disposition. An experimental method for measurement of intracellular bioavailability (Fic), was used throughout. Fic is defined as the ratio between the unbound drug concentration inside the cell and the compound concentration in the cell exterior. READ MORE

  2. 2. Proteomic and Functional Analysis of In Vitro Systems for Studies of Drug Disposition in the Human Small Intestine and Liver

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Magnus Ölander; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proteomics; drug disposition; ADMET; drug transport; drug metabolism; hepatotoxicity; small intestine; liver; caco-2; human hepatocytes; cryopreservation; apoptosis; liver zonation; non-parenchymal cells; Farmaceutisk vetenskap; Pharmaceutical Science;

    Abstract : To reach the bloodstream, an orally administered drug must be absorbed through the small intestine and avoid extensive clearance in the liver. Estimating these parameters in vitro is therefore important in drug discovery and development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Antidepressant drug effects in vivo: Focus on pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic responses in different experimental paradigms

    University dissertation from Cecilia Wikell, Department of Clinical Pharmacology, Lund University Hospital, S-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Cecilia Wikell; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Leverencefalopati (LE) är ett neuropsykiatriskt sjukdomstillstånd som kan ses i samband med en försämrad leverfunktion. Den bakomliggande orsaken till LE är ofta levercirrhos (skrumplever) p.g.a. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biopharmaceutical Evaluation of Intra-arterial Drug-Delivery Systems for Liver Cancer Investigations in healthy pigs and liver cancer patients

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elsa Lilienberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; in vivo release; drug delivery systems; local delivery; drug disposition; doxorubicin; hepatocellular carcinoma; transarterial chemoembolization; transarterial chemotherapy infusion; Pharmaceutical Science; Farmaceutisk vetenskap;

    Abstract : There are currently two types of intra-arterial drug-delivery system (DDS) in clinical use in the palliative treatment of primary liver cancer. The chemotherapeutic drug doxorubicin (DOX) can be formulated into a drug-in-lipiodol emulsion (LIPDOX) or a microparticulate drug-eluting bead system (DEBDOX). READ MORE

  5. 5. Genetic influence on enantiomeric drug disposition Focus on venlafaxine and citalopram

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Maria Kingbäck; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : A molecule that is not identical to its mirror image is said to be chiral. A racemic mixture, or a racemate, is one that has equal amounts of S- and R-enantiomers of a chiral molecule. Two examples of frequently prescribed racemic drugs are the antidepressants venlafaxine (VEN) and citalopram (CIT). READ MORE
