Semiphysiologically based pharmacokinetic model for midazolam and CYP3A mediated metabolite 1‐OH‐midazolam in morbidly obese and weight loss surgery patients

This study aimed to describe the pharmacokinetics of midazolam and its cytochrome P450 3A (CYP3A) mediated metabolite 1-OH-midazolam in morbidly obese patients receiving oral and i.v. midazolam before (n = 20) and one year after weight loss surgery (n = 18), thereby providing insight into the influence of weight loss surgery on CYP3A activity in the gut… CONTINUE READING
