Diffusion across the cell membrane l.jpg

Diffusion across the cell membrane

  • Passive transport (drawing)

    • higher conc to lower conc area

    • energy independent

    • at steady state both sides have equal conc.(non electrolye cpds)

    • electrolyte: conc. of each side depends on pH (fig 2)

    • weak acid and weak base

Diffusion across the cell membrane8 l.jpg

  • SR, Controlled release: Purposes and limitation

Enteral administration19 l.jpg

Enteral administration

  • Sublingual administration

    • Buccal absorption

    • Superior vana cava directly: no first pass effect

    • Nitroglycerin (NTG): highly extracted by the liver, high lipid solubility and high potency (little amount of absorbed molecules be able to show its pharmacological effects and relieve chest pain).

Enteral administration20 l.jpg

Enteral administration

  • Rectal adminstration

    • unconscious patients, pediatric patients

    • 50% pass through the liver and 50% bypass to the inferior vena cava

    • lower first pass effect than oral ingestion

    • inconsistency of absorption pattern

    • incomplete absorption

    • Irritating cpds

Parenteral administration21 l.jpg

Parenteral administration

  • Common use of parenteral administration

    • Intravenous

    • Subcutaneous

    • Intramuscular

  • Simple diffusion

  • Rate depends on surface of the capillary, solubility in interstitial fluid

  • High MW: Lymphatic pathway

Parenteral administration22 l.jpg

Parenteral administration

  • Intravenous

    • precise dose and dosing interval

    • No absorption (F=1), all molecules reach blood circulation

    • Pros: Calculable, promptly reach desired conc., Irritating cpds have less effects than other routes

    • Cons: unretreatable, toxic conc, lipid solvent cannot be given by this route (hemolysis), closely monitored

Parenteral administration23 l.jpg

Parenteral administration

  • Subcutaneous

    • suitable for non-irritating cpds

    • Rate is usually slow and constant causing prolonged pharmacological actions.

Parenteral administration24 l.jpg

Parenteral administration

  • Intramuscular

    • more rapid than subcutaneous

    • rate depends on blood supply to the site of injection

    • rate can be increased by increasing blood flow (example)

Pulmonary absorption l.jpg

Pulmonary absorption

  • gaseous or volatile substances and aerosol can reach the absorptive site of the lung.

  • Highly available area of absorption

Bioequivalence l.jpg


  • Pharmaceutical equivalence (drawing)

  • Bioequivalence: PharEqui+ rate+ bioavialable drugs

Distribution l.jpg


  • Drawing

  • distribution site: well-perfused organs, poor-perfused organs, plasma proteins

  • Well-perfused: heart, liver, kidney, brain

  • Poor-perfused: muscle, visceral organs, skin, fat

Distribution31 l.jpg


  • Plasma proteins

    • Albumin: Weak acids

    • alpha-acid glycoprotein: Weak bases

  • Effects of plasma protein binding

    • Free fraction: active, excreted, metabolized

    • the more binding, the less active drug

    • the more binding, the less excreted and metabolized:

      “longer half-life”

Distribution32 l.jpg


  • Effects of well distribution into the tissues

    • deep tissue as a drug reservoir

    • sustain released drug from the reservoir and redistributed to the site of its action

    • prolong pharmacologic actions

Distribution33 l.jpg



  • Blood-Brain Barrier (BBB)

    • unique anatomical pattern of the vessels supplying the brain

    • only highly lipid soluble compounds can move across to the brain

    • infection of the meninges or brain: higher permeability of penicillins to the brain.

Distribution34 l.jpg


Placental transfer

  • Simple diffusion

  • Lipid soluble drug, non-ionized species

  • first 3 mo. of pregnancy is very critical: “Organogensis”

Biotransformation l.jpg


  • Why biotranformed? (Figure 5)

    • Normally, drugs have high lipid solubility therefore they will be reabsorbed when the filtrate reaching renal tubule by using tubular reabsorption process of the kidney.

    • Biotransformation changes the parent drug to metabolites which always have less lipid solubility (more hydrophilicity) property therefore they could be excreted from the body

Biotransformation36 l.jpg


  • Biotransformation

    • to more polar cpds

    • to less active cpds

    • could be more potent (M-6-G) or more toxic (methanol to formaldehyde)

Biotransformation37 l.jpg


  • Phase I and II Biotransformation

    • Phase I : Functionization, Functional group

    • Phase II: Biosynthetic, Molecule

Biotransformation38 l.jpg


  • Phase I Reactions (Table 2)

    • Oxidation

    • Reduction

    • Hydrolysis

Biotransformation39 l.jpg


  • Phase II Reactions (Table 3)

    • Glucuronidation

    • Acetylation

    • Gluthathione conjugation

    • Sulfate conjugation

    • Methylation

Biotransformation40 l.jpg


  • Metabolite from conjugation reaction

    • Possibly excreted into bile acid to GI

    • Normal flora could metabolize the conjugate to the parent form and subsequently reabsorbed into the blood circulation. This pheonomenon is so-called “Enterohepatic circulation” which can prolong drug half-life.

Biotransformation41 l.jpg


  • Site of biotransformation

    • Mostly taken place in the liver

    • Other drug metabolizing organs: kidney, GI, skin, lung

    • Hepatocyte (Drawing)

Biotransformation42 l.jpg


The Liver:Site of biotransformation:

  • mostly enzymatic reaction by using the endoplasmic reticulum-dwelling enzymes.(Phase I), Cytosolic enzymes are mostly involved in the phase II Rxm.

  • Method of study phase I Rxm

    • Breaking liver cells

    • Centrifugation very rapidly

    • microsomes and microsomal enzymes

Biotransformation43 l.jpg


  • Cytochrome P450 monooxygenase system (figure 6)

    • microsomal enzymes

    • Oxidation reaction using reducing agent (NADPH), O2

    • System requirement

      • Flavoprotein (NADPH-cytochrome P450 reductase, FMN+FAD) fuctions as an electron donor to cytochrome c.

      • Cytochrome P450 (CYP450)

Biotransformation44 l.jpg


  • Steps in oxidative reactions (figure 6)

    • Step 1:Parent + CYP450

    • Step 2:Complex accepts electron from the oxidized flavoprotein

    • Step 3:Donored electron and oxygen forming a complex

    • Step 4: H2O and Metabolite formation

Biotransformation45 l.jpg

    • pollutant exposure from environment or industry

    • pathological status

    • age

Biotransformation47 l.jpg


  • Enzyme induction

    • Drugs, industrial or environmental pollutants

    • increase metabolic rate of certain drugs leading to faster elimination of that drugs.

    • “autoinduction”

    • Table 4

Biotransformation48 l.jpg


  • Enzyme induction

    • important inducers:

      • antiepileptic agents, glucocorticoids for CYP3A4

    • Clinical significance: erythormycin and terfenadine or astemizole causing cardiac arrhythmia.

Biotransformation50 l.jpg


  • Genetic polymorphism

    • Gene directs cellular functions through its products, protein.

    • Almost all enzymes are proteins so they have been directed by gene as well.

    • Drug-metabolizing enzymes:

      • Isoniazid: causing more neuropathy in caucaasians leading to identification of the first characterized pharmacogenetics.

      • due to the rate of N-acetylation: Slow and fast acetylators

Biotransformation51 l.jpg


  • Pathologic conditions

    • Hepatitis

    • Cirrhosis due to chronic alcohol intake

    • Hypertensive pts recieving propranolol which lowers blood supply to the liver may lead to less biotransformation of the high extraction drugs such as lidocaine, propranolol, verapamil, amitryptyline

Excretion l.jpg


  • Parent and metabolite

  • Hydrophilic compounds can be easily excreted.

  • Routes of drug excretion

    • Kidney
