  1. 1. ATP-Binding-Cassette Transporters in Biliary Efflux and Drug-Induced Liver Injury

    Author : Jenny M. Pedersen; Per Artursson; Christel A. S. Bergström; Stefan Oswald; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ABC transport protein; Pgp; P-glycoprotein; ABCB1; BCRP; breast cancer resistance protein; ABCG2; MRP2; multidrug resistance-associated protein 2; ABCC2; BSEP; bile salt export pump; ABCB11; sandwich cultured human hepatocytes; SCHH; drug-induced liver injury; DILI; multivariate data analysis; OPLS; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics;

    Abstract : Membrane transport proteins are known to influence the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity (ADMET) of drugs. At the onset of this thesis work, only a few structure-activity models, in general describing P-glycoprotein (Pgp/ABCB1) interactions, were developed using small datasets with little structural diversity.

  2. 2. ATP-Binding Cassette Efflux Transporters and Passive Membrane Permeability in Drug Absorption and Disposition

    Author : Pär Matsson; Per Artursson; Ulf Norinder; Peter Swaan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Pharmaceutics; ATP-binding cassette; ABC transporter; P-gp; P-glycoprotein; ABCB1; BCRP; Breast cancer resistance protein; ABCG2; MRP2; Multidrug-resistance associated protein 2; ABCC2; Membrane permeability; Drug transport; Active transport; Passive diffusion; Multivariate data analysis; PLS; OPLS; QSAR; Galenisk farmaci;

    Abstract : Transport into and across the cells of the human body is a prerequisite for the pharmacological action of drugs. Passive membrane permeability and active transport mechanisms are major determinants of the intestinal absorption of drugs, as well as of the distribution to target tissues and the subsequent metabolism and excretion from the body.

  3. 3. Experimental studies on multidrug resistance in human leukaemia : role of cellular heterogeneity for daunorubicin kinetics

    Author : Eva Knaust; Curt Peterson; Anna Porwit-MacDonald; Astrid Gruber; Christer Paul; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Acute myeloid leukaemia; heterogeneity; multidrug resistance. transport kinetics flow cytometry; gene expression; mdr1; mrp; lrp; apoptosis. bcl-2; p53; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Cellular resistance to chemotherapy is a major cause of treatment failure in acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) and still the majority of the patients die from their disease. Drug resistance 1s multifactorial, the most studied mechanism being multidrug resistance (MDR), mediated by the P-glycoprotein (Pgp). READ MORE

  4. 4. Cadmium in the mammary gland and neonatal intestine : transport pathways and interactions with calcium and iron

    Author : Helena Öhrvik; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Cadmium is a ubiquitous toxic metal known to cause several adverse health effects in humans. Newborns have an increased gastrointestinal absorption of cadmium compared to adults and seem to be more sensitive to cadmium toxicity. READ MORE

  5. 5. Aspects of molecular markers in drug resistant malaria

    Author : Irina Tatiana Jovel Quiñonez Dalmau; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: There were an estimated 207 million cases of malaria in 2012 of which 91% were due to Plasmodium falciparum. Antimalarial drug resistance constitutes a major problem in the efforts to control malaria. READ MORE
