BACKGROUND AND AIM Losartan is metabolized by polymorphic CYP2C9 to E-3174. Our aim was to evaluate the pharmacokinetics of losartan and E-3174 in relation to the CYP2C9 genotype. METHODS A 50-mg oral dose of losartan was given to 22 Swedish volunteers with different CYP2C9 genotypes. Losartan and E-3174 were analyzed by HPLC in plasma and urine samples(More)
This study analyzed the frequency of CYP2C9 variant alleles and evaluated the impact of CYP2C9 genotype on diclofenac metabolism in a Spanish population. Diclofenac hydroxylation capacity was studied in a population of 102 healthy volunteers. After a single oral dose of 50 mg diclofenac the 0- to 8-h urinary concentrations of diclofenac and its main(More)
CYP2D6 drug-metabolising enzyme has been shown to be involved in fluoxetine metabolism in vitro and in vivo. CYP2C9 has also been shown to influence the metabolism of fluoxetine in vitro; however, this relationship has not been studied in humans. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of CYP2D6 and CYP2C9 genotypes on the plasma(More)
Sixteen hospitalized white European Spanish psychiatric patients treated with thioridazine alone were studied with respect to CYP2D6 genotype, debrisoquine metabolic ratio (MR), and the plasma levels of thioridazine and its metabolites mesoridazine and sulforidazine. After decreasing the dose of thioridazine the debrisoquine MR and thioridazine plasma(More)
CYP2D6 genotype and debrisoquine metabolic ratio (MR) were analyzed in 133 Nicaraguan Mestizos (NMs) and 260 Cubans divided into Cuban Mestizos (CMs) and White Cubans (WCs). The frequencies of poor metabolizers (MR12.6) were 6% in NMs, 3.9% in CMs and 5.3% in WCs. The frequencies of ultrarapid metabolizers (MR0.1) were 0% in NMs, 2.3% in CMs and 5.3% in(More)
Background. Approximately 7% of Caucasians have genetically impaired activity of the cytochrome P450 enzyme CYP2D6 and are classified as poor metabolizers (PM). The disposition of thioridazine has been related to the CYP2D6 phenotype. The present study aimed to evaluate the influence of CYP2D6 and CYP2C9 genotypes, and tobacco smoking on steady-state(More)
Earlier we had found that the CYP2C9*2 allelic frequency was lower in Mexican-Americans living in California than in Spaniards (SP). This was assumed to be related to the low CYP2C9*2 and *3 allele frequencies in Orientals. This study was therefore aimed at analyzing whether there were also differences in CYP2C9 allele frequencies between Mexican-Tepehuanos(More)
AIM To describe for the first time CYP2C9 hydroxylation phenotype with CYP2C9 genotypes in a Hispanic (Ecuadorian) population using losartan; and the relevance of gender, tobacco, ethanol and caffeine consumption on the enzyme hydroxylation capacity. METHODS Ecuadorian healthy volunteers (n = 194) received a single oral dose of 25 mg losartan. Losartan(More)
We aimed to explore the possible influence of CYP2C9 (*2, *3 and IVS8-109 A>T), CYP2C19 (*2, *3 and *17) and ABCB1 (1236C>T, 2677G>A/T and 3435C>T) on phenytoin (PHT) plasma concentrations in 64 Mexican Mestizo (MM) patients with epilepsy currently treated with PHT in mono- (n=25) and polytherapy (n=39). Genotype and allele frequencies of these variants(More)
OBJECTIVES Our group has previously show that interindividual variability in CYP2D6 hydroxylation capacity was related to personality differences in cognitive social anxiety. Thus, we aimed to analyze whether this relationship between personality and CYP2D6 phenotype and genotype was found in a similar population of healthy volunteers from a different(More)
