Membrane transporters play a significant role in the pharma-cokinetic (PK) profiles of many drugs, 1,2 to which functional genetic variations in transporters can contribute. The organic anion-transporting polypeptide 1B1 (OATP1B1), encoded by the gene SLCO1B1, is an uptake transporter expressed on the basolateral membrane of human hepatocytes. OATP1B1 has a(More)

The influence of microsomal concentration on unbound fraction (fu(mic)), half-life (t(1/2)), apparent intrinsic clearance (CL(int,app)) and apparent Michaelis-Menten constant (K(m,app)) was examined for two compounds, one representative of high nonspecific binding to microsomes (compound A) and one representative of low (compound B). Kinetic parameters were(More)
Liver cirrhosis is a disease characterized by the loss of functional liver mass. Physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling was applied to interpret and predict how the interplay among physiological changes in cirrhosis affects pharmacokinetics. However, previous PBPK models under cirrhotic conditions were developed for permeable cytochrome P450(More)
