Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals: Transforming Proteins and Genes into Drugs

To aid scientists and healthcare execs continue velocity with advancements in bioengineered medications, Ho and Gibaldi (U. of Washington university of Pharmacy, Seattle) introduce monographs on biopharmaceutical applied sciences and strategies, cures in line with biotechnology, and destiny instructions (e. g, individualized gene- dependent medicine)-while acknowledging that biotechnology is anathema to a couple.

Toxicological profiles - 1,2-dichloroethene

This e-book was once digitized and reprinted from the collections of the collage of California Libraries. It used to be made out of electronic photos created throughout the libraries’ mass digitization efforts. The electronic pictures have been wiped clean and ready for printing via computerized approaches. regardless of the cleansing method, occasional flaws should still be current that have been a part of the unique paintings itself, or brought in the course of digitization.

Example text

Lipoproteins also bind some lipophilic and basic compounds. , but these are of little consequence for drugs and other xenobiotics. Binding to plasma proteins is always reversible, and the half-time of binding and release is exceedingly short (measured in milliseconds). Thus, even in the case of extensive (tight) binding, it is rapidly reversible under physiologic conditions. Since concentration gradients, which determine the rate of passive transport across membranes, are based solely on free drug, it follows that binding to plasma proteins slows the rate of removal of a drug from plasma by diminishing the concentration gradient across capillary cell membranes.

Hepatic extraction is sensitive to plasma protein binding. For low-extraction drugs, binding is of considerable importance, whereas hepatic uptake of high extraction drugs is little influenced by binding. Displacement of drugs from binding sites increases the proportion of free drug in the plasma and thus the effective concentration of the drug in extravascular compartments. Similarly, increasing the dose of a drug beyond binding capacity disproportionately increases the unbound fraction within the plasma and may lead to undesired pharmacologic effects.

Erythromycin and ketoconazole block the conversion of terfenadine, a prodrug, to its active metabolite. Since the parent compound is arrhythmogenic, serious cardiac toxicity may be seen with such drug combinations. For this reason, terfenadine was banned, although its active metabolite is marketed as fexofenadine (Allegra), which lacks cardiotoxicity and adverse CNS effects. It is suspected that there are many more such inhibitory drugs, 14 Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapeutics TABLE 1-3.
