In vitro-in vivo correlation of pharmacodynamics of felodipine in essential hypertensive patients based on an ion-channel binding model.

Abstract

The relationship between the plasma drug concentration and the antihypertensive effect of felodipine was analyzed by an ion-channel binding model which takes into consideration the slow association/dissociation process of a drug at the calcium channel. The in vitro dissociation constant (Kd) of felodipine to the calcium channel in the heart of rats was… (More)
