The human intestinal absorption of 241 drugs was evaluated. Three main methods were used to determine the human intestinal absorption: bioavailability, percentage of urinary excretion of drug-related material following oral administration, and the ratio of cumulative urinary excretion of drug-related material following oral and intravenous administration.(More)
1 (6-((R)-2-[2-[4-(4-Chloro-phenoxy)-piperidin-1-yl]-ethyl]-pyrrolidine-1-sulphonyl)-1H-indole hydrochloride) (SB-656104-A), a novel 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT(7)) receptor antagonist, potently inhibited [(3)H]-SB-269970 binding to the human cloned 5-HT(7(a)) (pK(i) 8.7+/-0.1) and 5-HT(7(b)) (pK(i) 8.5+/-0.2) receptor variants and the rat native receptor(More)
We developed and tested a novel Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) model to better understand the physicochemical drivers of pulmonary absorption, and to facilitate compound design through improved prediction of absorption. The model was tested using a large array of both existing and newly designed compounds. Pulmonary absorption data was(More)
INTRODUCTION Complex physicochemical and biological processes influence the oral absorption of a drug molecule. Consideration of these processes is an important activity during the optimisation of potential candidate molecules. AREAS COVERED The authors review the applications of physicochemical and structural requirements for intestinal absorption.(More)
P-glycoprotein (P-gp) mediated efflux is recognised to alter the absorption and disposition of a diverse range of substrates. Despite evidence showing the presence of P-gp within the lung, relatively little is known about the transporter's effect upon the absorption and distribution of drugs delivered via the pulmonary route. Here, we present data from an(More)
A series of 5-(piperidinylethyloxy)quinoline 5-HT(1) receptor ligands have been studied by elaboration of the series of dual 5-HT(1)-SSRIs reported previously. These new compounds display a different in vitro pharmacological profile with potent affinity across the 5-HT(1A), 5-HT(1B) and 5-HT(1D) receptors and selectivity against the serotonin transporter.(More)
A rational structure-activity relationship study around compound (1) is reported. The lead optimisation programme led to the identification of sulfonamide (25), a molecule combining dopamine D2/D3 receptor antagonism with serotonin 5-HT2A, 5-HT2C, 5-HT6 receptor antagonism for an effective treatment of schizophrenia. Compound (25) was shown to possess the(More)
MOTIVATION ADME SARfari is a freely available web resource that enables comparative analyses of drug-disposition genes. It does so by integrating a number of publicly available data sources, which have subsequently been used to build data mining services, predictive tools and visualizations for drug metabolism researchers. The data include the interactions(More)
5-HT1 receptor antagonists have been discovered with good selectivity over the 5-HT transporter. This is the first report of highly potent, selective ligands for the 5-HT1A/B/D receptors with low intrinsic activity, which represent a useful set of molecules for further understanding the roles of the 5-HT1 receptor subtypes and providing new approaches for(More)
To examine if pulmonary P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is functional in an intact lung; impeding the pulmonary absorption and increasing lung retention of P-gp substrates administered into the airways. Using calculated physico-chemical properties alone build a predictive Quantitative Structure-Activity Relationship (QSAR) model distinguishing whether a substrate’s(More)
