BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Accumulating evidence has shown that diabetes mellitus may affect the pharmacokinetics of some drugs, leading to alteration of pharmacodynamics and/or toxic effects. The aim of this study was to develop a novel physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model for predicting drug pharmacokinetics in patients with type 2 diabetes(More)
Aim:To investigate the effects of nitric oxide (NO) donors on the function and expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) in Caco-2 cells.Methods:Caco-2 cells were exposed to NO donors for designated times. P-gp function and expression were assessed using Rhodamine123 uptake assay and Western blotting, respectively. Intracellular reactive oxygen species (iROS) and(More)
Panax ginseng is one of the most popular herbal remedies. Ginsenosides, major bioactive constituents in P. ginseng, have shown good antidiabetic action, but the precise mechanism was not fully understood. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP1) is considered to be an important incretin that can regulate glucose homeostasis in the gastrointestinal tract after meals.(More)
BACKGROUND P-glycoprotein (P-GP) and multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (MRP2) are involved in transport of many drugs across blood-brain barrier (BBB). The function and expression of P-GP and MRP2 may be modulated by different pathologies. Acute liver failure (ALF) was reported to impair BBB function, resulting in the increased BBB permeability.

Aim:To characterize pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling of diclofenac in Freund's complete adjuvant (FCA)-induced arthritic rats using prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) as a biomarker.Methods:The pharmacokinetics of diclofenac was investigated using 20-day-old arthritic rats. PGE2 level in the rats was measured using an enzyme immunoassay. A(More)
During the last five years we have witnessed the widesprelld application of statistical process control in semiconductor manufacturing. As the requirements for process control grow, however, traditional statistical process control applications fall short of their goal. This happens because modern processes are more complex than they used to he. Further,(More)
OBJECTIVE Ginsenosides, major bioactive constituents in Panax ginseng, have been shown to exert anti-hyperlipidemia effects. However, the underlying mechanism was not well-elucidated due to the low bioavailability of ginsenosides. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) was considered to be a critical regulator of energy homeostasis. Our previous studies have(More)
