Purpose. The purpose of this study was to determine if the intestinal transport of pregabalin (isobutyl -γ-aminobutyric acid, isobutyl GAB A), a new anticonvulsant drug, was mediated by amino acid carriers with affinity for large neutral amino acids (LNAA). Methods. Pregabalin transport was studied in rat intestine and Caco-2 monolayers. An in vitro Ussing/diffusion chamber model and an in situ single-pass perfusion model were used to study rat intestinal transport. An in vitro diffusion… CONTINUE READING
