SummaryThe kinetics of14C-metformin have been studied in five healthy subjects after oral and intravenous administration. The intravenous dose was distributed to a small central compartment of 9.9±1.61 ( $$\bar X$$ ±SE), from which its elimination could be described using three-compartment open model. The elimination half-life from plasma was 1.7±0.1 h. Urinary excretion data revealed a quantitatively minor terminal elimination phase with a half-life of 8.9±0.7 h. After the intravenous dose… 
Pharmacokinetics of metformin after enteral administration in insulin-resistant ponies.
TLDR
During chronic oral administration at dosages reported in efficacy studies, the Css of metformin was less than values associated with therapeutic efficacy in humans, which is likely attributable to low bioavailability, rather than to rapid clearance.
Clinical Pharmacokinetics of Metformin
TLDR
The effect of structural variants of OCTs and other cation transporters on the pharmacokinetics of metformin appears small and the subsequent effects on clinical response are limited, however, intersubject differences in the levels of expression of OCT1 and OCT3 in the liver are very large and may contribute more to the variations in the hepatic uptake and clinical effect of metforms.

Ion-pair HPLC method for the quantification of metformin in human urine
TLDR
Urine provides a non-invasive sample collection method, and determination of drug levels in urine is comparatively less complex than plasma and other body fluids, several reports indicate that urinary excretion data can be used to arrive at bioequivalence decision of different drug formulations.
Effect of Cephalexin on the Pharmacokinetics of Metformin in Healthy Human Volunteers
TLDR
It is concluded that cephalexin inhibits the renal tubular secretion of metformin resulting in higher circulating serum concentrations and is responsible for the increase in Cmax and AUC in healthy human volunteers.
Pharmacokinetics and oral bioavailability of metformin hydrochloride in healthy mixed-breed dogs.
TLDR
The study data indicated that the general disposition pattern and bioavailability of metformin in dogs are similar to those reported for cats and humans.
Pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of metformin in horses.
TLDR
The low bioavailability of metformin may explain the reported lack of clinical success in improving insulin sensitivity with meetformin treatment in horses, and Dosages and dose intervals previously used may have been insufficient to achieve plasma concentrations of drug comparable to the therapeutic range achieved in humans.
Oral and intravenous pharmacokinetics of metformin with and without oral codeine intake in healthy subjects: A cross‐over study
TLDR
Concomitant oral and i.v. metformin increased the plasma levels of morphine, M3G and M6G, and small pharmacokinetic changes may well contribute to an increased risk of early discontinuation of met formin.
Population pharmacokinetic analysis of metformin administered as fixed-dose combination in Korean healthy adults
TLDR
The multiple peaks found during the absorption phase implied the possible diversity of absorption PK profile depending on formulation or population, and unlike traditional bioequivalence analysis, the population PK model reflects formulation differences on specific parameters and reflected simulation can be performed.

Pharmacokinetics of Phenformin in Man
TLDR
Phenformin was assayed in urine, plasma, and sputum specimens, obtained from two healthy volunteers during the four-day period following oral administration of a single therapeutic dose, and the terminal exponential declines indicate a half-life of approximately 11 hours.
Assessment of pharmacokinetic constants from postinfusion blood curves obtained after I.V. infusion.
TLDR
A mathematical equation is presented which enables one to determine the parameters identical to an i.v. bolus injection curve by utilizing the postinfusion blood curve, applicable to all compartmental models that may be described by linear first-order differential equations with constant coefficients.
Metformin administration in hyperlipidemic states.
TLDR
In patients with type IV hyperlipoproteinemia, serum triglycerides were reduced on an average by 55 mg/100 ml, corresponding to a 26% reduction, and the size of the simultaneous serum cholesterol reduction indicates a preferential decrease in VLD lipoproteins (pre-β-lipoprotein), which was also confirmed by the disappearance of pre- β-lipiproteins on lipoprotein electrophoresis.
Some pharmacokinetic aspects of 5-(dimethylriazeno)-imidazole-4-carboxamide in the dog.
TLDR
The renal clearance of 5-(dimethyltriazeno)-imidazole-4-carboxamide (DIC, NSC-45388) has been determined in the dog using radioactive inulin as the reference compound, suggesting tubular secretion of DIC.
Aminopyrine demethylation measured by breath analysis in cirrhosis
TLDR
It is concluded that the aminopyrine breath test represents a simple and noninvasive procedure which quantitatively reflects the microsomal function of the cirrhotic liver.

TLDR
The plasma protein binding data including the percentage bound at various concentrations of the drugs, the number of binding sites (n), the binding capacity of plasma albumin (rmax) and the dissociation constant of the sulphonamide‐albumin complex (K) for these compounds have been measured by ultrafiltration.
Metformin-induced lactic acidosis in the presence of acute renal failure
TLDR
It is concluded that metformin, like other biguanides, can induce lactic acidosis and should not be prescribed in the presence of renal failure.
