Explanations of the substances for patients
We have no additional warnings for the combination of abarelix and leuprolide. Please also consult the relevant specialist information.
The reported changes in exposure correspond to the changes in the plasma concentration-time curve [ AUC ]. We do not expect any change in exposure for abarelix, when combined with leuprolide (100%). We do not expect any change in exposure for leuprolide, when combined with abarelix (100%).
The pharmacokinetic parameters of the average population are used as the starting point for calculating the individual changes in exposure due to the interactions.
The bioavailability of abarelix is unknown. The terminal half-life [ t12 ] is rather long at 316.8 hours and constant plasma levels [ Css ] are only reached after more than 1267.2 hours. The protein binding [ Pb ] is 97.5% strong. The metabolism via cytochromes is currently still being worked on.
The bioavailability of leuprolide is unknown. The terminal half-life [ t12 ] is rather short at 3 hours and constant plasma levels [ Css ] are reached quickly. Protein binding [ Pb ] is not known. The metabolism does not take place via the common cytochromes.
|Serotonergic Effects a||0||Ø||Ø|
Rating: According to our knowledge, neither abarelix nor leuprolide increase serotonergic activity.
|Kiesel & Durán b||0||Ø||Ø|
Rating: According to our knowledge, neither abarelix nor leuprolide increase anticholinergic activity.
QT time prolongation
Rating: In combination, abarelix and leuprolide can potentially trigger ventricular arrhythmias of the torsades de pointes type.
