Intravenous dosing conditions may affect systemic clearance for highly lipophilic drugs: implications for lymphatic transport and absolute bioavailability studies.


The clearance (Cl) and volume of distribution (V(ss)) of a lipophilic, lymphatically transported drug, halofantrine (Hf) have been evaluated after intravenous delivery to the systemic circulation in ex vivo lymph and plasma, and compared with the data obtained after administration of a lipid-based emulsion and a lipid-free cosolvent formulation. Systemic Cl… (More)
