  • The objective of this investigation was to characterize the pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) correlation of buprenorphine's active metabolite norbuprenorphine for the effect on respiration in rats. Following i.v. administration in rats (dose range 0.32–1.848 mg), the time course of the concentration in plasma was determined in conjunction with the effect in ventilation as determined with a novel whole-body plethysmography technique. The PK of norbuprenorphine was best described by a… CONTINUE READING
