Rationale and objectiveBromazepam, an anti-anxiety agent, has been reported to be metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP). However, the enzyme responsible for the metabolism of bromazepam has yet to be determined. The purpose of this study was to examine whether the inhibition of CYP3A4 produced by itraconazole alters the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of bromazepam.MethodsEight healthy male volunteers participated in this randomized double-blind crossover study. The subjects received a 6… Expand
