Unfortunately discount 400 mg albenza otc, several of the earlier-developed in vivo probes were not rigorously evaluated prior to their application order 400 mg albenza visa, and interpretation of differences/changes in their trait values is therefore not easy. Ideally, the trait measure should be correlated directly with the target enzyme’s intrinsic clearance as measured, for example, in a tissue biopsy, e. However, from a practical standpoint this gold standard approach is difficult, especially in health subjects. Moreover, even if applied, it does not address the issue of any extrahepatic metabolism. On the other hand, if the target enzyme exhibits genetic polymorphism so that a null phenotype exists, e. However, in general, the best practical validation approach would appear to be the demonstration of a close and meaningful correlation between the putative trait value and the in vivo probe’s fractional oral clearance determined by a conventional pharmacokinetic study. A false and overly positive impression of the trait measure may be obtained if these two factors are not adequately considered; in this regard, it is important to recognize that the appropriate statistical measure of the 2 potential usefulness of any correlation is the coefficient determination (r ) and not the regression coefficient (r). As a corollary, it is also important to dem- onstrate that the phenotypic trait also correlates with the fractional clearances of other substrates metabolized by the same target enzyme. Such correlations are particularly critical in establishing that factors other than metabolism are not rate limiting. Additional validation steps generally focus on modulating the target enzyme’s activity and its effect on the trait value. Enzyme induction and inhi- bition, especially involving mechanism-based inhibitors, are usually used for this purpose, with the trait measure appropriately increasing or decreasing. Finally, if metabolism is limited to the liver or if a liver-specific test is required, then changes in the trait value would be expected in the presence of severe liver disease. In this regard, advantage may be taken of the anhepatic period during a liver transplant operation, when no functioning liver is present. Importantly, no single criterion is itself sufficient to validate a particular phenotypic trait value; rather, several of the described approaches must provide collective and consistent evidence. Finally, it should be recognized that to some extent validation depends on the purpose to which the in vivo probe is to be applied. For example, if evidence is required to demonstrate the presence or absence of a drug interaction, a less rigorous level of validation might be acceptable than if a quantitative measure of the extent of modulation of meta- bolic activity is necessary. In this case, a single-probe strategy would require multiple sequential studies using different in vivo probes to assess each indi- vidual enzyme. Not only is this time consuming but also results in an inefficient use of resources. To overcome these disadvantages, a ‘‘cocktail’’ approach has been applied based on the simultaneous administration of more than one in vivo 590 Wilkinson probe, each of which assesses the metabolic activity of a different enzyme. This concept was originally developed using nonspecific model drugs, such as anti- pyrine and hexobarbital (32), but more recently it has been applied with cocktails of several (n ¼ 2–6) different selective in vivo probes. The cocktail approach appears to be particularly suited to indirect phe- notypic trait values based on a single time point determination, e. However, a critical issue in the application of any cocktail study is whether one or more of the individual drugs interacts with another in the mixture. Accordingly, it is important to establish prior to application that combining two or more in vivo probes has no effect on any of the individual phenotypic trait values and that the combination is safe. A second potential complicating factor is that multiple drugs and their metabolites are present and must be analyzed in the same biological sample. Accordingly, the involved analytical methodologies must not only be sufficiently sensitive but also specific so that no analytical interference is present. Nevertheless, the overall strategy of a single probe and multiple enzymes appears to be worthwhile pursuing further. A number of these substrates have been studied and applied as in vivo probes in humans. Caffeine Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine) is one of the most widely and frequently consumed xenobiotics throughout the world. The diet is the principal source of such intake, with estimates of per capita daily consumption in Europe and North America exceeding 200 mg/day. Following oral administration, caffeine is rapidly and completely absorbed, and it is then eliminated essentially completely (>95%) by metabolism. Such metabolism is complex, with at least 17 metab- olites being formed and excreted in the urine. However, these arise from three primary pathways that contribute to over 95% of the drug’s overall metabolic clearance; N-demethylation to form paraxanthine (80%), N1-demethylation to form theobromine (11%), and N7-demethylation to form theophylline (4%). C8-Hydroxylation and C8–N9 bond scission together account for the remaining 5% or so of caffeine’s metabolism.
