A physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model consisting of vein, artery, lung, liver, spleen, kidneys, heart, testes, muscle, brain, adipose tissue, stomach, and small intestine was developed to predict the tissue distribution and blood pharmacokinetics of bisphenol A in rats and humans. To demonstrate the validity of the developed PBPK model,(More)
This study describes the maternal-fetal disposition of bisphenol A and its distribution into the placenta and amniotic fluid after iv injection (2 mg/kg) to pregnant Sprague-Dawley rats. Bisphenol A was distributed extensively to the placenta and fetus, with their respective AUC values 4.4- and 2.2-fold greater than AUC for the maternal serum. In contrast,(More)
PEGylation is a pharmaceutical technology that involves the covalent attachment of polyethylene glycol (PEG) to a drug to improve its pharmacokinetic, pharmacodynamic, and immunological profiles, and thus, enhance its therapeutic effect. Currently, PEGylation is used to modify proteins, peptides, oligonucleotides, antibody fragments, and small organic(More)
The oxidative stress related consequences of physical training at high altitude are not known. The hypothesis was tested that physical training and exposure to high altitude have adverse effects on free radical generation and activities of antioxidant enzymes. The present results showed that 4 weeks of exercise at an altitude of 4000 m increased the(More)
1. The study was performed to predict the pharmacokinetic disposition of bisphenol A in humans using simple allometry and several species-invariant time methods based on animal data. Bisphenol A was injected intravenously to mouse, rat, rabbit and dog (1-2 mg kg(-1) doses). 2. The obtained serum concentration-time profiles were best described by(More)
Human serum albumin (HSA) nanoparticles (NPs) surface modified with tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and transferrin, and containing doxorubicin were designed and prepared. Surface amines of HSA were reversibly protected with dimethylmaleic anhydride (DMMA), and HSA-NPs were prepared using a desolvation technique.(More)
Polymer nanoparticles have been used as non-viral gene delivery systems and drug delivery systems. In this study, biodegradable poly(L-lactic acid) (PLA)/polyethylenimine (PEI) and poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA)/PEI nanoparticles were prepared and characterized as gene delivery systems. The PLA/PEI and PLGA/PEI nanoparticles, which were prepared by a(More)
Glucagon-like peptide-1-(7-36) (GLP-1) is a hormone derived from the proglucagon molecule, which is considered a highly desirable antidiabetic agent mainly due to its unique glucose-dependent stimulation of insulin secretion profiles. However, the development of a GLP-1-based pharmaceutical agent has a severe limitation due to its very short half-life in(More)
The chromatographic capacity factors (kIAM) of 23 structurally diverse drugs were measured by the immobilized artificial membrane (IAM) phosphatidylcholine chromatography for the prediction of blood-brain barrier (BBB) penetration. The kIAM was determined using the mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile:DPBS (20:80 v/v) and corrected for the molar volume(More)
A gastroretentive drug delivery system of DA-6034, a new synthetic flavonoid derivative, for the treatment of gastritis was developed by using effervescent floating matrix system (EFMS). The therapeutic limitations of DA-6034 caused by its low solubility in acidic conditions were overcome by using the EFMS, which was designed to cause tablets to float in(More)
