  1. 1. Pulmonary Drug Absorption In vitro and in vivo investigations of drug absorption across the lung barrier and its relation to drug physicochemical properties

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann Tronde; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacy; lung; pulmonary; drug delivery; inhalation; drug transport; pharmacokinetics; absorption; bioavailability; drug metabolism; preclinical; rat; in vivo; isolated and perfused lung; Caco-2; nebulization catheter; aerosol; physicochemical; peptide; efflux; FARMACI; PHARMACY; FARMACI; Biopharmaceutics; biofarmaci;

    Abstract : Although, pulmonary drug delivery is a well established means for targeting of drugs to the lungs for the treatment of respiratory diseases as well as for the systemic delivery of volatile anesthetic agents, drug absorption kinetics in the lung have not been subjected to extensive research. The main objective of this thesis was to investigate drug absorption characteristics of the lung barrier, using the isolated and perfused rat lung model and in vivo pharmacokinetic studies in rats.

  2. 2. 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

  3. 3. Refined in vitro Models for Prediction of Intestinal Drug Transport Role of pH and Extracellular Additives in the Caco-2 Cell Model

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sibylle Neuhoff; Uppsala universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacy; Caco-2 cells; membrane permeability; drug permeation; drug efflux ratios; drug uptake ratios; Cremophor EL; bovine serum albumin; pH-dependent permeability; drug transport; FARMACI; PHARMACY; FARMACI;

    Abstract : Drug transport across the intestinal epithelium is roughly predicted from permeability values obtained from Caco-2 cell monolayers. This thesis examines the important role of pH and extracellular additives for increasing the reliability and predictivity of the in vitro screening system, Caco-2. READ MORE

  4. 4. Circumventing drug resistance : Studies exploring the expediency of a total cell kill chemoresistance assay

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bertil Jonsson; Uppsala universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medical sciences; drug resistance; drug resistance assay; clinical correlations; cancer; human; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; klinisk farmakologi; Clinical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Cellular resistance to anti-cancer drugs is considered to be the major cause of treatment failure in clinical practice. The present studies have therefore focused on ways to circumvent resistance as evaluated by an in vitro chemoresistance assay. READ MORE

  5. 5. Drug Dissolution under Physiologically Relevant Conditions In Vitro and In Vivo

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Persson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Biopharmacy; solubility; drug dissolution; food effects; poorly soluble drugs; P-gp inhibition; drug absorption; pemeability; bile acids; phospholipids; human intestinal fluid; simulated intestinal fluid; neutral lipids; solid phase extraction; HPLC; Efflux; Biofarmaci;

    Abstract : The general aim of the present project was to increase the understanding of the in vivo dissolution of poorly soluble drugs and thereby improve possibility to predict in vivo solubility from substance properties. Increased understanding of the in vivo limitations of drug solubility could potentially also generate ideas for improved formulation principles for poorly soluble compounds and more relevant in vitro dissolution test methods used in formulation development.
