Tác dụng
Description: Zileuton is a specific 5-lipoxygenase inhibitor that inhibits leukotriene formation. Leukotrienes induce biological effects e.g. augmentation of neutrophil and eosinophil migration, neutrophil and monocyte aggregation, leukocyte adhesion, increased capillary permeability, and smooth muscle contraction. These effects contribute to inflammation, oedema, mucous secretion and bronchoconstriction in the airway of asthmatic patients.
Pharmacokinetics:
Absorption: Well absorbed from the GI tract. Improved absorption when administered w/ food (controlled-release). Time to peak plasma concentration: Approx 2 hr (immediate-release).
Distribution: Volume of distribution: 1.2 L/kg. Plasma protein binding: Approx 93% (mainly albumin).
Metabolism: Hepatic metabolism via CYP1A2, CYP2C9 and CYP3A4 isoenzymes.
Excretion: Via urine (approx 95% largely as glucuronide metabolites) and faeces (approx 2%). Elimination half-life: Approx 2.5 hr (immediate-release); approx 3 hr (controlled-release).
Bảo quản
Store between 20-25°C. Protect from light.
