  • ObjectiveTo clarify the involvement of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 in the metabolism of etizolam.MethodsThe effects of itraconazole, a potent and specific inhibitor of CYP3A4, on the single oral dose pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of etizolam were examined. Twelve healthy male volunteers received itraconazole (200 mg/day) or placebo for 7 days in a double-blind randomized crossover manner, and on the 6th day they received a single oral 1-mg dose of etizolam. Blood samplings and evaluation… CONTINUE READING
