Elucidating the relationship between acetazolamide plasma protein binding and renal clearance using an albumin infusion.


The effect of plasma protein binding changes on drug clearance is an important concept in clinical pharmacology. In a hypoalbuminemic patient receiving acetazolamide, albumin infusion (50 g) increased acetazolamide plasma protein binding towards normal as the serum albumin concentration rose (r = 0.91, P < .001). The ratio of acetazolamide renal plasma… (More)
