10 Absolute Availability of Midazolam Nasal Spray The absolute availability of nasally administered midazolam (in a parenteral solution) was determined in eight healthy individuals. 5 mg. Blood samples were taken at various time intervals and the plasma concentration of the drug (CP) determined . Calculate the absolute availability of midazolam in a nasal spray. 1 Answer Midazolam is distributed according to the two-compartment open model after IV and nasal administration, and the data in the table above were used to obtain the following equations: 22 IV: CP 5 A Á e2aÁt 1 B Á e2bÁt 5 127 Á e25:23Á10 min21 Át 23 1 18:7 Á e23:73Á10 22 IN: CP 5 A Á e2aÁt 1 B Á e2bÁt 2C Á e2ka Át 5 90:5 Á e21:5Á10 21 2 161:6 Á e20:176 min Át min21 Át min21 Át ng=ml 23 1 73:6 Á e23:22Á10 min21 Át ng=ml AUC from time zero to infinity is then calculated according to Eqs.
Thus, ClH is frequently proportional to the fraction of unbound drug (fu). 3), for example, diazepam, theophylline, and warfarin. 31 Schematic explanation of hepatic clearance. Q is the blood flow through the liver, CA is the drug concentration in the blood entering the liver via the portal vein, and CV is the drug concentration in the blood leaving the liver. with high ER ( . 7), for example, lidocaine, propranolol, and verapamil, are extensively cleared from the blood flow by the liver, and thus their protein binding has little effect on their ClH.
