Example text

The penetrability of the capillary wall depends on the tissue. In cardiac muscle (top right), there is endocytotic and transcytotic activity (arrowheads in micrographs) that transports fluid and macromolecules into and out of the interstitium. Drugs that are in the fluid will also be transported, regardless of their physiochemical properties. , the pancreas, lower right) and the gut, the endothelial cells have fenestrations (arrowheads) that are closed by diaphragms. , most drugs), but macromolecule penetration will depend on molecular weight and ionization.

The mechanisms by which the pharmacokinetics may be altered include the following: – Reduced hepatic blood flow reduces first-pass metabolism of drugs taken orally. – Reduced plasma protein binding may affect both distribution and elimination. – Plasma clearance of a drug is reduced if it is eliminated following metabolism and/or following excretion into bile. A dose reduction will be necessary in hepatic disease, but it should be calculated for each individual patient. 2 Mechanisms of Drug Action and Pharmacodynamics Pharmacodynamics are the pharmacological principles that describe drug effects on the body, explaining both mechanism of action and dose–response relationship.

A large TI allows for a variety of dosing regimens. A small TI often necessitates that a drug is given intravenously (IV), by IV infusion, or as a sustained-release preparation. Bioavailability (F) This must be factored in when considering all methods of administration of drugs except for IV (100% bioavailability). It is especially important in determining oral dosing regimens. Volume of distribution (Vd) This will affect the concentration of free drug in plasma, which, in turn, determines how much is available for elimination.
