Sarpogrelate is a selective serotonin 5-HT2A-receptor antagonist used to treat patients with peripheral arterial disease. This drug is rapidly hydrolyzed to its main metabolite (R,S)-1-[2-[2-(3-methoxyphenyl)ethyl]phenoxy]-3-(dimethylamino)-2-propanol (M-1), which is mainly excreted as a glucuronide conjugate. Sarpogrelate was also directly glucuronidated(More)
BACKGROUND The aims of this study were to investigate the effectiveness, safety, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics of microemulsion propofol, Aquafol (Daewon Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd, Seoul, Republic of Korea). METHODS In total, 288 patients were randomized to receive 1% Aquafol or 1% Diprivan (AstraZeneca, London, UK) (n=144, respectively). A 30 mg(More)
A simple and accurate liquid chromatography (LC)-tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) method for the quantitation of 20 anti-tuberculosis (anti-TB) drugs in human plasma, was developed as a tool for therapeutic drug monitoring. Two protein precipitation methods were adopted; one using methanol containing 0.13N HCl, for precipitation of amikacin, kanamycin,(More)
Ticlopidine is a first-generation thienopyridine antiplatelet drug that prevents adenosine 5'-diphosphate (ADP)-induced platelet aggregation. We identified the enzymes responsible for the two-step metabolic bioactivation of ticlopidine in human liver microsomes and plasma. Formation of 2-oxo-ticlopidine, an intermediate metabolite, was NADPH dependent and(More)
This article is available online at http://www.jlr.org The compound 20-HETE is an arachidonic acid (ARA) metabolite generated through the cytochrome P450 (CYP) pathway ( 1 ). CYP4A11, CYP4F2, CYP4F3, CYP2U1, and CYP1A1 are known to metabolize ARA to 20-HETE ( 2, 3 ). In addition, 20-HETE plays a role in regulating cardiovascular hemostasis ( 4 ) as a(More)
Ticlopidine is a first-generation thienopyridine antiplatelet drug that prevents adenosine 59-diphosphate (ADP)-induced platelet aggregation. We identified the enzymes responsible for the two-step metabolic bioactivation of ticlopidine in human liver microsomes and plasma. Formation of 2-oxo-ticlopidine, an intermediate metabolite, was NADPH dependent and(More)
Oseltamivir is a substrate of P-glycoprotein, an efflux drug transporter encoded by ABCB1. The objective of this study was to assess the role of ABCB1 (c.1236C>T, c.2677G>T/A, and c.3435C>T) polymorphisms in the pharmacokinetics of oseltamivir and its active metabolite, oseltamivir carboxylate in humans. Nineteen healthy male subjects were enrolled, and(More)
