Abstract

The pharmacokinetics of dextromethorphan (DM) is markedly influenced by cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) enzyme polymorphisms. The aim of this study was to quantify the effects of the CYP2D6*1, *2, and *41 variants on DM metabolism in vivo and to identify other sources of pharmacokinetic variability. Concentrations of DM and dextrorphan (DO) in plasma and urine were evaluated in 36 healthy Caucasian men. These volunteers participated in three clinical studies and received a single oral dose of 30 mg DM-HBr. Data were modeled simultaneously using the population pharmacokinetics NONMEM software. A five-compartment model adequately described the data. The activity levels of the alleles assessed differed significantly. The clearance attributable to an individual CYP2D6*1 copy was 2.5-fold higher as compared with CYP2D6*2 (5,010 vs. 2,020 l/h), whereas the metabolic activity of CYP2D6*41 was very low (85 l/h). Urinary pH was confirmed as a significant covariate for DM renal clearance. These results refine genotype-based predictions of pharmacokinetics for DM and presumably for other CYP2D6 substrates as well.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
