During human pregnancy, there is a huge increase in the total weight of the embryo/fetus from conception to term. The total growth, which is the summation of growth of the various organs and tissues that make up the organism, was analyzed in a previous paper and fitted to the Gompertz equation for growth. In the present study, allometry, the quantitative(More)
A physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) model and program (called PostNatal) was developed which focuses on postnatal growth. Algorithms defining organ/tissue growth curves from birth through adulthood for male and female humans, dogs, rats, and mice are utilized to calculate the appropriate weight and blood flow for the internal organs/tissues. This(More)
Physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models are excellent tools to aid in the extrapolation of animal data to humans. When the fate of the chemical is the same among species being compared, animal data can appropriately be considered as a model for human exposure. For methylmercury exposure, sufficient data exist to allow comparison of numerous(More)
A mathematical structure is described for determining teratogenic sensitivity or susceptibility from analysis of malformation incidence, dose-response, and pharmacokinetic data obtained during pregnancy as a result of exposure to a teratogenic agent. From the dosage or exposure of laboratory animals, embryonic and maternal concentrations of the xenobiotic(More)
The distribution of Halofenate between the free and albumin bound forms was calculated by the use of two computer programs using both Scatchard association constants for a 3,3,7 model, and six stepwise equilbrium constants over a range of drug concentrations reported in man. The calculations, using either set of constants, showed that only 0.3 to 0.5% of(More)
The binding of Warfarin by human serum albumin (HSA) and subcellular fractions from rat liver was investigated to evaluate the roles of such interactions in the pharmacokinetic properties of the anticoagulant. In vitro intracellular distribution studies showed that Warfarin was bound primarily by the soluble fraction of rat liver. Equilibrium dialysis(More)
