Abstract: The need to develop new antipsychotics that have fewer motor adverse effects and offer better treatment of negative symptoms has led to a new generation of drugs. Most of these drugs undergo extensive first-pass metabolism and are cleared almost exclusively by metabolism, except for amisulpride whose clearance is largely due to urinary excretion. Risperidone has metabolic routes in common with ziprasidone but shows differences in regard to other main pathways: the benzisoxazole moiety of risperidone is oxidised by cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2D6 to the active 9-hydroxyrisperidone, whereas the benzisothiazole of ziprasidone is primarily oxidised by CYP3A4, yielding sulfoxide and sulfone derivatives with low affinity for target receptors in vitro. Olanzapine, quetiapine and zotepine also have some common metabolic features. However, for the thienobenzodiazepine olanzapine a main metabolic route is direct conjugation at the benzodiazepine nucleus, whereas for the dibenzothiazepine quetiapine and the dibenzothiepine zotepine it is CYP3A4-mediated oxidation, leading to sulfoxidation, hydroxylation and dealkylation for quetiapine, but N-demethylation to the active nor-derivative for zotepine. Although the promising benzisoxazole (iloperidone) and benzisothiazole (perospirone) antipsychotics share some metabolic routes with the structurally related available drugs, they too have pharmacologically relevant compound-specific pathways. For some of the new antipsychotics we know the isoenzymes involved in their main metabolic pathways and the endogenous and exogenous factors that, by affecting enzyme activity, can potentially modify steady-state concentrations of the parent drug or its metabolite(s), but we know very little about others (e.g. amisulpride isomers, nemonapride). For yet others, information is scarce about the activity of the main metabolites and whether and how these contribute to the effect of the parent drug. Aging reduces the clearance of most antipsychotics, except amisulpride (which requires further evaluation) and ziprasidone. Liver impairment has little or no effect on the pharmacokinetics of olanzapine, quetiapine, risperidone (and 9-hydroxy-risperidone) and ziprasidone, but information is lacking for amisulpride. Renal impairment significantly reduces the clearance and prolongs the elimination half-life of amisulpride and risperidone. Again, studies are still not available for some drugs (zotepine) and have focused on the parent drug for others (olanzapine, quetiapine, ziprasidone) despite the fact that renal impairment would be expected to lower the clearance of more polar metabolites. Addressing these issues may assist clinicians in the design of safe and effective regimens for this group of drugs, and in selecting the best agent for each specific population.
Abstract: Amisulpride binds selectively to dopamine D(2) and D(3) receptors in the limbic system. Low doses of amisulpride preferentially block presynaptic D(2)/D(3)-dopamine autoreceptors, thereby enhancing dopaminergic transmission, whereas higher doses block postsynaptic receptors, thus inhibiting dopaminergic hyperactivity. Amisulpride is clinically effective on the negative symptoms of acute schizophrenia exacerbations at low dosages (50-300 mg/day), and also on the positive symptoms of the disease at high dosages (400-800 mg/day). Nineteen clinical studies involving 358 volunteers have investigated the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and tolerability of amisulpride. Amisulpride shows linear pharmacokinetics, a bioavailability of 48%, low protein binding (17%) and an elimination half-life of approximately 12 h. It is predominantly eliminated in the urine as the parent compound. It exhibits no significant detrimental effects in psychometric or memory tests up to the dose of 400 mg/day, inducing only mild impairment at high doses, whereas EEG data suggest an alertness-enhancing effect at low doses (<or= 50 mg). Moreover, amisulpride does not potentiate the depressant effects on the central nervous system of alcohol and lorazepam. This tolerability profile is clearly better than that of haloperidol 4 mg/day and is consistent with a weak blocking effect on striatal D(2) receptors. In summary, studies in humans have shown that amisulpride is free of behavioural toxicity at doses exerting clear antipsychotic efficacy and confirm that its CNS effects may vary with the dose administered.
Abstract: Electrocardiograms (ECGs) from a case series of 86 amisulpride overdose events in 66 patients were reviewed for abnormal QT intervals and torsade de pointes (TdP). Eight patients exhibited TdP. In this investigative case series, the magnitude of prolongation of the QT interval was a stronger predictor of TdP than the mere presence of a prolongation per se.
Abstract: INTRODUCTION: Many psychotropic drugs can delay cardiac repolarization and thereby prolong the rate-corrected QT interval (QTc). A prolonged QTc often arouses concern in clinical practice, as it can be followed, in rare cases, by the life-threatening polymorphic ventricular tachyarrhythmia called torsade de pointes (TdP). METHOD: We searched PubMed for pertinent literature on the risk of QTc prolongation and/or TdP associated with commonly used psychotropic drugs. RESULTS: Thioridazine and ziprasidone confer the highest risk of QTc prolongation and/or TdP. There is also a clinically significant risk associated with haloperidol given intravenously in high doses. TdP has been reported in a few cases in association with the use of newer antipsychotic drugs (mainly quetiapine and amisulpride), most of the tri- and tetracyclic antidepressants, and the selective monoamine reuptake inhibitors citalopram, fluoxetine, paroxetine, and venlafaxine. As a rule, however, QTc prolongation and/or TdP occur only in the presence of multiple additional risk factors, such as age over 65 years, pre-existing cardiovascular disease, bradycardia, female sex, hypokalemia, hypomagnesemia, a supratherapeutic or toxic serum concentration, or the simultaneous administration of other drugs that delay repolarization or interfere with drug metabolism. CONCLUSION: Before prescribing a psychotropic drug, the physician should carefully assess its risks and benefits to avoid this type of adverse reaction, particularly when additional risk factors are present. The ECG and electrolytes should be regularly monitored in patients taking psychotropic drugs.
Abstract: Three open-label, single-dose studies investigated the impact of hepatic or renal impairment on abiraterone acetate pharmacokinetics and safety/tolerability in non-cancer patients. Patients (n = 8 each group) with mild/moderate hepatic impairment or end-stage renal disease (ESRD), and age-, BMI-matched healthy controls received a single oral 1,000 mg abiraterone acetate (tablet dose); while patients (n = 8 each) with severe hepatic impairment and matched healthy controls received 125- and 2,000-mg abiraterone acetate (suspension doses), respectively (systemic exposure of abiraterone acetate suspension is approximately half to that of tablet formulation). Blood was sampled at specified timepoints up to 72 or 96 hours postdose to measure plasma abiraterone concentrations. Abiraterone exposure was comparable between healthy controls and patients with mild hepatic impairment or ESRD, but increased by 4-fold in patients with moderate hepatic impairment. Despite a 16-fold reduction in dose, abiraterone exposure in patients with severe hepatic impairment was about 22% and 44% of the Cmax and AUC∞ of healthy controls, respectively. These results suggest that abiraterone pharmacokinetics were not changed markedly in patients with ESRD or mild hepatic impairment. However, the capacity to eliminate abiraterone was substantially compromised in patients with moderate or severe hepatic impairment. A single-dose administration of abiraterone acetate was well-tolerated.
Abstract: Two novel oral drugs that target androgen signaling have recently become available for the treatment of metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (mCRPC). Abiraterone acetate inhibits the synthesis of the natural ligands of the androgen receptor, whereas enzalutamide directly inhibits the androgen receptor by several mechanisms. Abiraterone acetate and enzalutamide appear to be equally effective for patients with mCRPC pre- and postchemotherapy. Rational decision making for either one of these drugs is therefore potentially driven by individual patient characteristics. In this review, an overview of the pharmacokinetic characteristics is given for both drugs and potential and proven drug-drug interactions are presented. Additionally, the effect of patient-related factors on drug disposition are summarized and the limited data on the exposure-response relationships are described. The most important pharmacological feature of enzalutamide that needs to be recognized is its capacity to induce several key enzymes in drug metabolism. The potency to cause drug-drug interactions needs to be addressed in patients who are treated with multiple drugs simultaneously. Abiraterone has a much smaller drug-drug interaction potential; however, it is poorly absorbed, which is affected by food intake, and a large interpatient variability in drug exposure is observed. Dose reductions of abiraterone or, alternatively, the selection of enzalutamide, should be considered in patients with hepatic dysfunction. Understanding the pharmacological characteristics and challenges of both drugs could facilitate decision making for either one of the drugs.
Abstract: We present a case of a 77 year-old gentleman with previous coronary artery bypass grafting, admitted to hospital with recurrent torsades de pointes (TdP) due to abiraterone-induced hypokalaemia and prolonged QTc. The patient was on abiraterone and prednisone for metastatic prostate cancer. He required multiple defibrillations for recurrent TdP. Abiraterone is a relatively novel drug used in metastatic prostate cancer and we discuss this potential adverse effect and its management in this unusual presentation.
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: Therapeutic drug monitoring studies have generally concentrated on controlling compliance and avoiding side effects by maintaining long-term exposure to minimally effective blood concentrations. The rationale for using therapeutic drug monitoring in relation to second-generation antipsychotics is still being discussed at least with regard to the real clinical utility, but there is evidence that it can improve efficacy, especially when patients do not respond or develop side effects using therapeutic doses. Furthermore, drug plasma concentration determinations can be of some utility in medico-legal problems. This review concentrates on the clinical pharmacokinetic data related to clozapine, risperidone, paliperidone, olanzapine, quetiapine, amisulpride, ziprasidone, aripiprazole, sertindole, asenapine, iloperidone, lurasidone, brexpiprazole and cariprazine and briefly considers the main aspects of their pharmacodynamics. Optimal plasma concentration ranges are proposed for clozapine, risperidone, paliperidone and olanzapine because the studies of quetiapine, amisulpride, asenapine, iloperidone and lurasidone provide only limited information and there is no direct evidence concerning ziprasidone, aripiprazole, sertindole, brexpiprazole and cariprazine: the few reported investigations need to be confirmed and extended.
