OBJECTIVE The mutual drug-drug interaction potential of the 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitor cerivastatin and cyclosporine (INN, ciclosporin) in kidney transplant recipients receiving individual immunosuppressive treatment was evaluated with respect to pharmacokinetic behavior of either drug and tolerability of concomitant(More)
OBJECTIVE Cerivastatin is a novel, synthetic, highly potent 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A (HMG-CoA) reductase inhibitor that effectively reduces serum cholesterol levels at very low doses. It is exclusively cleared from humans via cytochrome P450-mediated biotransformation (demethylation M1; hydroxylation M23) and subsequent biliary/renal excretion(More)
To determine the absolute bioavailability of the HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor cerivastatin, 12 healthy young male volunteers received single doses of either 100 micrograms as a 1-minute bolus infusion or 200 micrograms orally as tablets in a controlled, randomized crossover study. In addition, 8 of the 12 subjects participated in a third treatment period in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of concomitant administration of the antacid Maalox 70 or the histamine H2 receptor antagonist ranitidine on the bioavailability of moxifloxacin. DESIGN These were nonblinded, randomised, crossover studies performed in healthy volunteers. PARTICIPANTS 24 healthy males aged 22 to 39 years (study 1; n = 12) and 24 to 43(More)
OBJECTIVE Cerivastatin, a novel HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, is exclusively cleared via cytochrome P450-mediated biotransformation and subsequent biliary and renal excretion of the metabolites. The presented study was performed to determine the influence of the gastric acid secretion inhibitor omeprazole on bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of(More)
UNLABELLED Biomarkers are increasingly used to provide decision making data early in phase I by showing Proof of Mechanism or Proof of Concept (PoM/PoC). For antihypertensive agents, the administration of multiple doses (md) to hypertensive patients is assumed to be necessary for an early go/no-go decision. We compared the effects of an Angiotensin II(More)
The biopharmaceutical properties of cerivastatin were evaluated in a series of worldwide clinico-pharmacological studies. Young healthy males aged 18-45 years were randomized to receive 0.05-0.8 mg cerivastatin orally, given either as single or multiple once-daily doses under fed or fasting conditions in the morning, with evening meal or at bedtime.(More)
Cerivastatin is a novel, potent HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor. It is primarily cleared via demethylation and hydroxylation with involvement of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 and subsequent biliary and renal excretion of the metabolites. Both cerivastatin and the dihydropyridine calcium antagonist nifedipine, which is primarily metabolized by CYP 3A4, are used(More)
