This paper investigated the pharmacokinetics and biotransformation of mirtazapine in healthy human volunteers. The results showed that the area under the plasma drug concentration-time curve (AUC) of mirtazapine in human plasma appeared to be three times higher than the AUC of demethylmirtazapine. As mirtazapine is marketed as a racemic mixture and both(More)
1. The biotransformation and excretion of the antidepressant mianserin were studied after oral administration of the labelled drug to rats, mice, rabbits, guinea pigs and humans. Mianserin was well absorbed and almost completely metabolized in all five species. 2. Major metabolic pathways of mianserin were p-oxidation of the N-substituted aromatic ring(More)
BACKGROUND Comprehensive identification of human drug metabolites in first-in-man studies is crucial to avoid delays in later stages of drug development. We developed an efficient workflow for systematic identification of human metabolites in plasma or serum that combines metabolite prediction, high-resolution accurate mass LC-MS and MS vendor independent(More)
For the identification of intact underivatized drug conjugates, the mass spectrometric technique of choice is fast atom bombardment (FAB); the combined use of both positive and negative ion FAB usually provides information on the molecular mass and nature of conjugates under study, while the number of exchangeable hydrogen atoms can be determined using(More)

The metabolism of trans-5-chloro-2-methyl-2,3,3a,12b-tetrahydro-1 H-dibenz[2,3:6,7]oxepinol [4,5-c]pyrrolidine maleate (Org 5222) labelled with [3H] or [14C] was investigated in Wistar rats. Metabolites were identified by mass spectrometry, 13C- and 1H-NMR analysis, IR spectroscopy and, wherever possible, by comparison with authentic reference compounds.(More)
Metabolic stability is a key issue in the development of orally active androgens for Partial Androgen Deficiency in Aging Males (PADAM) and male contraception. Rates of metabolism in human hepatocyte suspensions provide useful information on the stability of compounds that undergo a first pass metabolism. We have derived a structure-pharmacokinetic(More)
The metabolism and excretion of asenapine [(3aRS,12bRS)-5-chloro-2-methyl-2,3,3a,12b-tetrahydro-1H-dibenzo[2,3:6,7]-oxepino [4,5-c]pyrrole (2Z)-2-butenedioate (1:1)] were studied after sublingual administration of [(14)C]-asenapine to healthy male volunteers. Mean total excretion on the basis of the percent recovery of the total radioactive dose was ∼90%,(More)
