BACKGROUND Rosuvastatin, a novel potent HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, is excreted into bile mediated by breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP). Our objective was to determine the association between the most frequent single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the BCRP (421C>A) and the pharmacokinetics of rosuvastatin. METHOD Pre-screening of SLCO1B1 521TC(More)
BACKGROUND Both atorvastatin and rifampicin are substrates of OATP1B1 (organic anion transporting polypeptide 1B1) encoded by SLCO1B1 gene. Rifampicin is a potent inhibitor of SLCO1B1 (IC50 1.5 umol/l) and SLCO1B1 521T>C functional genetic polymorphism alters the kinetics of atorvastatin in vivo. We hypothesize that rifampicin might influence atorvastatin(More)
To determine the frequencies of CYP3A4 alleles (CYP3A4*4,*5 and *6) in Chinese hyperlipidemic patients and to observe the impact of CYP3A4*4 (Ile118Val) genetic polymorphism on the lipid-lowering effects of simvastatin and on the activity of CYP3A4. From hospitalized and non-hospitalized patients, 211 unrelated hyperlipidemic patients were recruited for(More)
AIMS Nateglinide is a meglitinide analogue with antidiabetic action. A recent study showed that SLCO1B1 (which codes the OATP1B1 gene, also known as OATP-C, OATP2) is a major determinant which markedly affects the pharmacokinetics of repaglinide. Our objective was to assess the association between single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of SLCO1B1 and the(More)
The study was designed to define the contribution of cytochrome p450 2C19 (CYP2C19) and cytochrome p450 3A4 (CYP3A4) to citalopram N-demethylation and to evaluate the relationship between the disposition of citalopram and CYP2C19 genotype. A single oral 40-mg dose of citalopram was administered to eight extensive metabolizers and five poor metabolizers(More)
OBJECTIVES The human beta(1)-adrenergic receptor, an important therapeutic target in cardiovascular diseases, has 2 common functional polymorphisms (Ser49Gly and Gly389Arg). Our study aimed to confirm that beta(1)-adrenergic receptor polymorphisms affect the blood pressure response to metoprolol monotherapy in the Chinese population with hypertension. (More)
BACKGROUND Cytochromes P450 (CYP) 2C9 are polymorphic enzymes which catalyze a wide spectrum of drugs. It is also responsible for the metabolism of arachidonic acid into EETs. EETs are known to be a vasoactive substance and play an important role in a hypertensive episode. Whether the genetic polymorphism of CYP2C9 will affect the vasoactive effect and(More)
1. The 5-HT(2A) receptor belongs to the G-protein superfamily. It plays an important role in vascular regulation. 2. Previous reports in the UK have indicated that there is an association of the T102C genetic polymorphism of the 5-HT(2A) receptor with hypertension, but no studies have been made on the T102C genetic polymorphism in Chinese hypertensive(More)
AIMS To investigate the association of CYP2C9*3 and *6 with hyperlipidaemia in Chinese. METHODS Four hundred and seventy-six Chinese participated in the study, including 211 uncomplicated hyperlipidaemic patients and 265 healthy controls. PCR-RFLP was used to identify CYP2C9*3 and *6. RESULTS CYP2C9*6 was not detected in this study. The allelic(More)
