The changes in exposure mentioned relate to changes in the plasma concentration-time curve [AUC]. We did not detect any change in exposure to ciprofloxacin. We cannot currently estimate the influence of lansoprazole. Lansoprazole exposure increases to 104%, when combined with ciprofloxacin (104%). The AUC is between 71% and 459% depending on the CYP2C19
The pharmacokinetic parameters of the average population are used as the starting point for calculating the individual changes in exposure due to the interactions.
Ciprofloxacin has a mean oral bioavailability [ F ] of 70%, which is why the maximum plasma levels [Cmax] tend to change with an interaction. The terminal half-life [ t12 ] is rather short at 3.5 hours and constant plasma levels [ Css ] are reached quickly. The protein binding [ Pb ] is very weak at 30%. About 55.0% of an administered dose is excreted unchanged via the kidneys and this proportion is seldom changed by interactions. The metabolism mainly takes place via CYP1A2 and the active transport takes place partly via BCRP, OATP1A2 and PGP.
Lansoprazole has a mean oral bioavailability [ F ] of 80%, which is why the maximum plasma levels [Cmax] tend to change with an interaction. The terminal half-life [ t12 ] is rather short at 0.9 hours and constant plasma levels [ Css ] are reached quickly. The protein binding [ Pb ] is 97% strong and the volume of distribution [ Vd ] is small at 12 liters. The metabolism takes place via CYP2C19 and CYP3A4, among others and the active transport takes place in particular via PGP.

Abstract: OBJECTIVE: In a crossover study 12 healthy volunteers received lansoprazole 15 mg or 30 mg orally, or 15 mg intravenously in randomized order as a single dose. Blood samples were taken and plasma levels of lansoprazole were determined using an HPLC method. The volunteers were phenotyped for the debrisoquine/sparteine and mephenytoin polymorphisms. RESULTS: The total clearance was 517 ml.min-1, and the absolute bioavailability was 91% for the 30-mg and 81% for the 15-mg enteric-coated formulation. The elimination half-life was about 1 h. No correlation of the plasma levels to the sparteine metabolic ratio was found, and no correlation to the mephenytoin type could be established, since all volunteers of the mephenytoin type were extensive metabolizers. Although considerable variation, inter- and intraindividually, was observed, the increase in Cmax and AUC did not deviate from dose proportionality. The present galenic formulation ensures a high bioavailability after a single dose.
Abstract: The pharmacokinetics of intravenous ciprofloxacin and its metabolites were characterized in 42 subjects with various degrees of renal function (group 1, Clcr (mL/min/1.73 m2) > 90, n = 10; group 2, Clcr 61-90, n = 11; group 3, Clcr 31-60, n = 11; group 4, Clcr < or = 30, n = 10). The dosage regimens were-groups 1 and 2: 400 mg i.v. at 8 hourly intervals; group 3: 400 mg i.v. at 12 hourly intervals and group 4: 300 mg i.v. at 12 hourly intervals. Subjects received a single dose on days 1 and 5 and multiple doses on days 2-4. Multiple plasma and urine samples were collected on days 1 and 5 for the analysis of ciprofloxacin and its metabolites (M1, M2 and M3). Plasma concentrations (Cmax and AUC) of ciprofloxacin and its M1 and M2 metabolites were significantly increased in subjects with reduced Clcr values (Clcr < 60 mL/min/1.73 m2) compared with normal subjects (Clcr > 90 mL/min/1.73 m2). A positive correlation was observed between ciprofloxacin clearance (Cl) and Clcr with a slope of 0.29 (r2 = 0.78) and between renal clearance (Clr) and Clcr with a slope of 0.19 (r2 = 0.84). For patients with severe infections a dosage regimen of 400 mg iv 8 hourly is appropriate in patients with Clcr > 60 mL/min/1.73 m2. In patients with Clcr values of 31-60 mL/min/1.73 m2 a dosage regimen of 400 mg 12 hourly provides similar plasma concentrations to those observed for subjects with Clcr 61-90 mL/min/1.73 m2 receiving 400 mg 8 hourly. Based on modeling of the plasma concentrations in subjects with Clcr < or = 30 ml/min/1.73 m2, a dosage regimen of 400 mg every 24 h will provide plasma concentrations similar to those observed in subjects with Clcr between 61-90 mL/min/1.73 m2 given 400 mg every 8 h.
Abstract: STUDY OBJECTIVE: To compare the rates of torsades de pointes associated with ciprofloxacin, ofloxacin, levofloxacin, gatifloxacin, and moxifloxacin administration. DESIGN: Retrospective database analysis. INTERVENTION: Evaluation of reported rates of torsades de pointes in patients who received these quinolones between January 1, 1996, and May 2, 2001. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: In the United States, 25 cases of torsades de pointes associated with these quinolones (ciprofloxacin 2, ofloxacin 2, levofloxacin 13, gatifloxacin 8, moxifloxacin 0) were identified. Ciprofloxacin was associated with a significantly lower rate of torsades de pointes (0.3 cases/10 million prescriptions, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.0-1.1) than levofloxacin (5.4/10 million, 95% CI 2.9-9.3, p<0.001) or gatifloxacin (27/10 million, 95% CI 12-53, p<0.001 for comparison with ciprofloxacin or levofloxacin). When the analysis was limited to the first 16 months after initial U.S. approval of the agent, the rates for levofloxacin (16/10 million) and gatifloxacin (27/10 million) were similar (p>0.5). CONCLUSION: Levofloxacin should be administered with caution in patients with risk factors for QT prolongation. Gatifloxacin should be avoided in the same patient population, and the recommended dosage of 400 mg/day should not be exceeded.
Abstract: Ciprofloxacin has been widely used for treating infections and has been found to have very low cardiovascular side effects. QTc prolongation with the use of ciprofloxacin is yet to be reported in literature. A case report highlighting QTc prolongation by use of ciprofloxacin is being presented.
Abstract: Lansoprazole is a substrate of CYP2C19 and CYP3A4. The aim of this study was to compare the inhibitory effects of fluvoxamine, an inhibitor of CYP2C19, on the metabolism of lansoprazole between CYP2C19 genotypes. Eighteen volunteers--of whom 6 were homozygous extensive metabolizers (EMs), 6 were heterozygous EMs, and 6 were poor metabolizers (PMs) for CYP2C19--received three 6-day courses of either daily 50 mg fluvoxamine or placebo in a randomized fashion with a single oral 60-mg dose of lansoprazole on day 6 in all cases. Plasma concentrations of lansoprazole and its metabolites, 5-hydroxylansoprazole and lansoprazole sulfone, were monitored up to 24 hours after the dosing. During placebo administration, there was a significant difference in the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to infinity (AUC(0-infinity)) of lansoprazole between CYP2C19 genotypes. Fluvoxamine treatment increased AUC(0-infinity) of lansoprazole by 3.8-fold (P < .01) in homozygous EMs and by 2.5-fold (P < .05) in heterozygous EMs, whereas no difference in any pharmacokinetic parameters was found in PMs. There was a significant difference in the fluvoxamine-mediated percentage increase in the AUC(0-infinity) of lansoprazole between CYP2C19 genotypes. The present study indicates that there are significant drug interactions between lansoprazole and fluvoxamine in EMs. CYP2C19 is predominantly involved in lansoprazole metabolism in EMs.
Abstract: AIMS: Lansoprazole is a substrate of CYP2C19 and CYP3A. The aim of this study was to compare the inhibitory effects of clarithromycin, an inhibitor of CYP3A on the metabolism of lansoprazole between CYP2C19 genotypes. METHODS: A two-way randomized double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study was performed. Eighteen volunteers, of whom six were homozygous extensive metabolizers (EMs), six were heterozygous EMs and six were poor metabolizers (PMs) for CYP2C19, received two 6-day courses of either clarithromycin 800 mg or placebo daily in a randomized fashion with a single oral dose of lansoprazole 60 mg on day 6 in all cases. Plasma concentrations of lansoprazole and its metabolites, 5-hydroxylansoprazole and lansoprazole sulphone were monitored up to 24 h after dosing. RESULTS: During placebo administration, the mean AUC0, infinity of lansoprazole in homozygous EMs, heterozygous EMs and PMs were 4652 (95% CI, 2294, 7009) ng ml(-1) h, 8299 (4784, 11814) ng ml(-1) h and 25293 (17643, 32943) ng ml(-1) h (P < 0.001), respectively. Clarithromycin treatment significantly increased Cmax by 1.47-fold, 1.71-fold and 1.52-fold and AUC0, infinity of lansoprazole by 1.55-fold, 1.74-fold, and 1.80-fold in these genotype groups, respectively, whereas elimination half-life was prolonged only in PMs. The clarithromycin-mediated percent increase in pharmacokinetic parameters such as Cmax, AUC0, infinity or elimination half-life did not differ between the three CYP2C19 genotypes. CONCLUSIONS: The present study indicates that there are significant drug interactions between lansoprazole and clarithromycin in all CYP2C19 genotype groups probably through CYP3A inhibition. The bioavailability of lansoprazole might, to some extent, be increased through inhibition of P-glycoprotein during clarithromycin treatment.
Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Omeprazole, lansoprazole and rabeprazole have been widely used as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). They can be metabolized in the liver by CYP2C19, a polymorphic enzyme, and have a wide inter-individual variability with respect to drug response. In the investigation reported here, we examined the kinetic characteristics of the three PPIs in healthy Chinese subjects in relation to CYP2C19 genotype status. METHODS: Six homozygous extensive metabolizers (homEMs), six heterozygous extensive metabolizers (hetEMs) and six poor metabolizers (PMs) were recruited for the study from a total of 90 healthy Chinese volunteers whose CYP2C19 genotype status was determined by means of PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP). The study was had an open label, randomized, three-way crossover design. After a single oral dose of 40 mg omeprazole, 30 mg lansoprazole or 40 mg rabeprazole, plasma concentrations of the three PPIs were determined by HPLC. RESULTS: There were some differences for the area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC), the elimination half-life (t(1/2 ke)) and the maximum plasma concentration (c(max)) in the three groups. In the homEMs, hetEMs and PMs, the relative AUC(0-infinity) values were 1:2.8:7.5 for omeprazole, 1:1.7:4.0 for lansoprazole and 1:1.6:3.7 for rabeprazole, respectively; the relative t(1/2 ke) values were 1:1.02:1.65 for omeprazole, 1:1.08:2.39 for lansoprazole and 1:1.37:1.85 for rabeprazole, respectively; the relative c(max) values were 1:2.09:4.39 for omeprazole, 1:1.34:1.72 for lansoprazole, and 1:1.24:2.04 for rabeprazole, respectively. CONCLUSION: The pharmacokinetic characteristics of the three PPIs are significantly dependent on the CYP2C19 genotype status. These data indicate that individualized dose regimen of the three PPIs, based on identification of genotype, can be of great benefit for ensuring the reasonable use of these drugs.
Abstract: The new respiratory fluoroquinolones (gatifloxacin, gemifloxacin, levofloxacin, moxifloxacin, and on the horizon, garenoxacin) offer many improved qualities over older agents such as ciprofloxacin. These include retaining excellent activity against Gram-negative bacilli, with improved Gram-positive activity (including Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus). In addition, gatifloxacin, moxifloxacin and garenoxacin all demonstrate increased anaerobic activity (including activity against Bacteroides fragilis). The new fluoroquinolones possess greater bioavailability and longer serum half-lives compared with ciprofloxacin. The new fluoroquinolones allow for once-daily administration, which may improve patient adherence. The high bioavailability allows for rapid step down from intravenous administration to oral therapy, minimizing unnecessary hospitalization, which may decrease costs and improve quality of life of patients. Clinical trials involving the treatment of community-acquired respiratory infections (acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis, acute sinusitis, and community-acquired pneumonia) demonstrate high bacterial eradication rates and clinical cure rates. In the treatment of community-acquired respiratory tract infections, the various new fluoroquinolones appear to be comparable to each other, but may be more effective than macrolide or cephalosporin-based regimens. However, additional data are required before it can be emphatically stated that the new fluoroquinolones as a class are responsible for better outcomes than comparators in community-acquired respiratory infections. Gemifloxacin (except for higher rates of hypersensitivity), levofloxacin, and moxifloxacin have relatively mild adverse effects that are more or less comparable to ciprofloxacin. In our opinion, gatifloxacin should not be used, due to glucose alterations which may be serious. Although all new fluoroquinolones react with metal ion-containing drugs (antacids), other drug interactions are relatively mild compared with ciprofloxacin. The new fluoroquinolones gatifloxacin, gemifloxacin, levofloxacin, and moxifloxacin have much to offer in terms of bacterial eradication, including activity against resistant respiratory pathogens such as penicillin-resistant, macrolide-resistant, and multidrug-resistant S. pneumoniae. However, ciprofloxacin-resistant organisms, including ciprofloxacin-resistant S. pneumoniae, are becoming more prevalent, thus prudent use must be exercised when prescribing these valuable agents.
Abstract: Use of in vitro suspensions of human hepatocytes is currently accepted as one of the most promising tools for prediction of metabolic clearance in new drugs. The possibility of creating computational models based on this data may potentiate the early selection process of new drugs. We present an artificial neural network for modelling human hepatocyte intrinsic clearances (CL(int)) based only on calculated molecular descriptors. In vitro CL(int) data obtained in human hepatocytes suspensions was divided into a train group of 71 drugs for network optimization and a test group of another 18 drugs for early-stop and internal validation resulting in correlations of 0.953 and 0.804 for the train and test group respectively. The model applicability was tested with 112 drugs by comparing the in silico predicted CL(int) with the in vivo CL(int) estimated by the "well-stirred" model based on the in vivo hepatic clearance (CL(H)). Acceptable correlations were observed with r values of 0.508 and 63% of drugs within a 10-fold difference when considering blood binding in acidic drugs only. This model may be a valuable tool for prediction and simulation in the drug development process, allowing the in silico estimation of the human in vivo hepatic clearance.

Abstract: Fluoroquinolone antimicrobial drugs are absorbed efficiently after oral administration despite of their hydrophilic nature, implying an involvement of carrier-mediated transport in their membrane transport process. It has been that several fluoroquinolones are substrates of organic anion transporter polypeptides OATP1A2 expressed in human intestine derived Caco-2 cells. In the present study, to clarify the involvement of OATP in intestinal absorption of ciprofloxacin, the contribution of Oatp1a5, which is expressed at the apical membranes of rat enterocytes, to intestinal absorption of ciprofloxacin was investigated in rats. The intestinal membrane permeability of ciprofloxacin was measured by in situ and the vascular perfused closed loop methods. The disappeared and absorbed amount of ciprofloxacin from the intestinal lumen were increased markedly in the presence of 7,8-benzoflavone, a breast cancer resistance protein inhibitor, and ivermectin, a P-glycoprotein inhibitor, while it was decreased significantly in the presence of these inhibitors in combination with naringin, an Oatp1a5 inhibitor. Furthermore, the Oatp1a5-mediated uptake of ciprofloxacin was saturable with a K(m) value of 140 µm, and naringin inhibited the uptake with an IC(50) value of 18 µm by Xenopus oocytes expressing Oatp1a5. Naringin reduced the permeation of ciprofloxacin from the mucosal-to-serosal side, with an IC(50) value of 7.5 µm by the Ussing-type chamber method. The estimated IC(50) values were comparable to that of Oatp1a5. These data suggest that Oatp1a5 is partially responsible for the intestinal absorption of ciprofloxacin. In conclusion, the intestinal absorption of ciprofloxacin could be affected by influx transporters such as Oatp1a5 as well as the efflux transporters such as P-gp and Bcrp.
Abstract: BACKGROUND: Anticholinergic drugs are often involved in explicit criteria for inappropriate prescribing in older adults. Several scales were developed for screening of anticholinergic drugs and estimation of the anticholinergic burden. However, variation exists in scale development, in the selection of anticholinergic drugs, and the evaluation of their anticholinergic load. This study aims to systematically review existing anticholinergic risk scales, and to develop a uniform list of anticholinergic drugs differentiating for anticholinergic potency. METHODS: We performed a systematic search in MEDLINE. Studies were included if provided (1) a finite list of anticholinergic drugs; (2) a grading score of anticholinergic potency and, (3) a validation in a clinical or experimental setting. We listed anticholinergic drugs for which there was agreement in the different scales. In case of discrepancies between scores we used a reputed reference source (Martindale: The Complete Drug Reference®) to take a final decision about the anticholinergic activity of the drug. RESULTS: We included seven risk scales, and evaluated 225 different drugs. Hundred drugs were listed as having clinically relevant anticholinergic properties (47 high potency and 53 low potency), to be included in screening software for anticholinergic burden. CONCLUSION: Considerable variation exists among anticholinergic risk scales, in terms of selection of specific drugs, as well as of grading of anticholinergic potency. Our selection of 100 drugs with clinically relevant anticholinergic properties needs to be supplemented with validated information on dosing and route of administration for a full estimation of the anticholinergic burden in poly-medicated older adults.
Abstract: Transporters in proximal renal tubules contribute to the disposition of numerous drugs. Furthermore, the molecular mechanisms of tubular secretion have been progressively elucidated during the past decades. Organic anions tend to be secreted by the transport proteins OAT1, OAT3 and OATP4C1 on the basolateral side of tubular cells, and multidrug resistance protein (MRP) 2, MRP4, OATP1A2 and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) on the apical side. Organic cations are secreted by organic cation transporter (OCT) 2 on the basolateral side, and multidrug and toxic compound extrusion (MATE) proteins MATE1, MATE2/2-K, P-glycoprotein, organic cation and carnitine transporter (OCTN) 1 and OCTN2 on the apical side. Significant drug-drug interactions (DDIs) may affect any of these transporters, altering the clearance and, consequently, the efficacy and/or toxicity of substrate drugs. Interactions at the level of basolateral transporters typically decrease the clearance of the victim drug, causing higher systemic exposure. Interactions at the apical level can also lower drug clearance, but may be associated with higher renal toxicity, due to intracellular accumulation. Whereas the importance of glomerular filtration in drug disposition is largely appreciated among clinicians, DDIs involving renal transporters are less well recognized. This review summarizes current knowledge on the roles, quantitative importance and clinical relevance of these transporters in drug therapy. It proposes an approach based on substrate-inhibitor associations for predicting potential tubular-based DDIs and preventing their adverse consequences. We provide a comprehensive list of known drug interactions with renally-expressed transporters. While many of these interactions have limited clinical consequences, some involving high-risk drugs (e.g. methotrexate) definitely deserve the attention of prescribers.
Abstract: The accurate estimation of "in vivo" inhibition constants () of inhibitors and fraction metabolized () of substrates is highly important for drug-drug interaction (DDI) prediction based on physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models. We hypothesized that analysis of the pharmacokinetic alterations of substrate metabolites in addition to the parent drug would enable accurate estimation of in vivoandTwenty-four pharmacokinetic DDIs caused by P450 inhibition were analyzed with PBPK models using an emerging parameter estimation method, the cluster Newton method, which enables efficient estimation of a large number of parameters to describe the pharmacokinetics of parent and metabolized drugs. For each DDI, two analyses were conducted (with or without substrate metabolite data), and the parameter estimates were compared with each other. In 17 out of 24 cases, inclusion of substrate metabolite information in PBPK analysis improved the reliability of bothandImportantly, the estimatedfor the same inhibitor from different DDI studies was generally consistent, suggesting that the estimatedfrom one study can be reliably used for the prediction of untested DDI cases with different victim drugs. Furthermore, a large discrepancy was observed between the reported in vitroand the in vitro estimates for some inhibitors, and the current in vivoestimates might be used as reference values when optimizing in vitro-in vivo extrapolation strategies. These results demonstrated that better use of substrate metabolite information in PBPK analysis of clinical DDI data can improve reliability of top-down parameter estimation and prediction of untested DDIs.
