Pharmacokinetics of cladribine in a rat model following subcutaneous and intra-arterial injections.

Male Sprague Dawley rats (n = 6-8 per group) weighing from 300-450 g were used for the study. Each rat received a single dose of cladribine (CdA) by ia (1 mg/kg) or s.c. (2 mg/kg) injection. Pharmacokinetic data were calculated by standard procedures assuming a 2-compartment open model following i.v. bolus using WinNonLin and Rstrips, and differences… (More)
