Target-Site Investigation for the Plasma Prolactin Response: Mechanism-Based Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Analysis of Risperidone and Paliperidone in the Rat.

To understand the drivers in the biological system response to dopamine D2 receptor antagonists, a mechanistic semiphysiologically based (PB) pharmacokinetic-pharmacodymanic (PKPD) model was developed to describe prolactin responses to risperidone (RIS) and its active metabolite paliperidone (PAL). We performed a microdialysis study in rats to obtain… CONTINUE READING
