L-732,531 is a semi-synthetic analog of the macrolide tacrolimus (Prograf(R)). Like tacrolimus, L-732,531 is a potent immunosuppressant. In this study, its absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion were studied in rats and baboons. In rats, its blood and plasma levels were similar, whereas in baboons, its blood levels were, on average, twice as(More)
One of the unaddressed challenges in drug discovery is that drug potency determined in vitro is not a reliable indicator of drug activity in vivo. Accumulated evidence suggests that in vivo activity is more strongly correlated with the binding/unbinding kinetics than the equilibrium thermodynamics of protein-ligand interactions (PLIs). However, existing(More)
The in vitro and in vivo metabolism of N-[1(R)-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-yl)butyl]-3,3-diethyl-2(S)-[4-[(4-methy l-1-piperazinyl)carbonyl]phenoxy]-4-oxo-1-azetidinecarboxamide (L-694,458) was studied in male Sprague-Dawley rats and rhesus monkeys. Analysis by LC-MS/MS and NMR revealed that the major metabolite generated in incubations with rat liver microsomes(More)
