This can result in increased access of drugs to the central nervous system, an effect that is believed to contribute to the increased incidence of confusion caused by cimetidine, ranitidine and famotidine in patients with renal failure. eGFR is used to adjust the dose regimen in patients with some degree of chronic renal impairment for drugs with a low therapeutic index that are eliminated mainly by renal excretion. Dose adjustment must be considered for drugs for which there is Ͼ50% elimination by renal excretion.
The availability of glutathione is critical in determining the clinical outcome. Patients who have ingested large amounts of paracetamol are therefore treated 27 with thiol donors such as N-acetyl cysteine or methionine to increase the endogenous supply of reduced glutathione. GLUTATHIONE CONJUGATES Naphthalene and some sulphonamides also form conjugates with glutathione. One endogenous function of glutathione conjugation is formation of a sulphidopeptide leukotriene, leukotriene (LT) C4. This is formed by conjugation of glutathione with LTA4, analogous to a phase II reaction.
A considerably smaller fraction of the absorbed dose goes through gut and liver in subsequent passes because of distribution to other tissues and drug elimination by other routes. e. it is rapidly metabolized by the liver), a substantial fraction will be extracted from the portal blood and metabolized before it reaches the systemic circulation. 4). The route of administration and presystemic metabolism markedly influence the pattern of drug metabolism. For example, when salbutamol is given to asthmatic subjects, the ratio of unchanged drug to metabolite in the urine is 2:1 after intravenous administration, but 1:2 after an oral dose.
