5 Drug-body interaction
Pharmacodynamics, PD Drug Action and Mechanism Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, Excretion Pharmacokinetics, PK

6 What is drug A chemical substance that can modulate the current physiological status quo of a biological system. A chemical which is utilized for the diagnosis, prevention and cure of an unwanted health condition (definition by FDA)

7 Source of drugs Ancient Natural products Modern
Plants Animals Minerals Modern Active principles of natural products Artificial synthetics Full synthetic Semi synthetic Biological engineering

10 Missions of pharmacology
Explore the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic features of drugs Probe the mystery of life process Find and develop new drugs

11 Process of Drug Development
The Long Road to a New Medicine synthesis Screen Phase II Clinical trial Phase III clinical trial Phase I clinical trial Animal PK/PD/Tox Dosage form Candidate chemicals Design Application Marketing 25) Idea-to-new medicine road - Full Development phase In this Full Development stage, known as Phase lll, several thousand patients with the particular disease receive the drug in carefully controlled studies to test its safety, tolerability, and efficacy. Finally, if the compound has proved its worth in all these tests, it enters the Registration phase in which the data of its entire history are compiled and analyzed in a regulatory submission. This New Drug Application, or NDA, is submitted to the FDA for review. In parallel, a Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) is filed in Europe, followed by a Japanese NDA. Only after a successful regulatory review does the candidate become a new medicine.

12 History of medicines Phase I: Using natural products to treat diseases
China: Sheng Nong’s Herbal Classic (神农本草经), described 365 TCM; Compendium of Materia Medica (本草纲目), described 1892 TCM Greeks; e.g. Dioscorides: De materia medica (药物 学), described 600 plants Islamic physicians; e.g. Avicenna: Herbal medicine Phase II: Scientific Using pure drug compounds Understanding physiopathology of diseases and pharmacology of drugs

13 History of pharmacology Modern pharmacology originated in Europe
Francois Magendie ( ), a French physiologist, Experimental procedures with animals for determination of drug action. Fredrick Surturner ( ) isolated the chief alkaloid of opium, Morphine – pure chemicals and repeated quantitatively Claude Bernard ( ),investigated the plant extract curare and proposed a site of action for this agent. Rudolph Buchheim ( ). In 1847 established the first laboratory in the basement of his home in Dorpat which is the cradle of experimental pharmacology. Oswald Schmiedeberg ( ). In 1872 set up an institute of pharmacology in Strasbourg, which became a mecca for training in pharmacology

14 Chapter 2 Pharmacokinetics

15 Why do me need to know PK? Optimize drug therapy to obtain a
predictable response! Drug of choice How much How often For how long The dose makes medicine –Paracelsus 1538

16 Therapeutic Goal is to:
Achieve drug concentrations… at the site of action (target tissue)… that are sufficiently high enough… to produce the intended effect… without producing adverse drug reactions.

17 Toxicity Efficacy Pharmacokinetics Pharmacodynamics
Drug Administration Absorption Drug Concentration in Systemic Circulation Drug in Tissues of Distribution Drug Metabolism or Excreted Pharmacokinetics Distribution Elimination Drug Concentration at Site of Action Pharmacologic Effect Pharmacodynamics Clinical Response Toxicity Efficacy

19 Section 1 Drug Transport Ch. 2

20 Transfer of drugs across Membranes
Extracellular Carrier-mediated transport Active transport Facilitated diffusion Simple diffusion (Lipid diffusion) Filtration (Aqueous diffusion) Intracellular

21 Diffusion through lipid bi-layer
1.Simple diffusion Diffusion through lipid bi-layer Passive process, concentration gradient dependent, requires no energy Molecules move from area of high to low concentration Rate of diffusion is proportional to: lipid solubility, the greater the lipid solubility the faster the rate of diffusion pKa of molecules Concentration difference between both sides

22 Ion trapping Cell membranes are less permeable to ionized compounds
Acidic drug: HA  H+ + A (ionized) Basic drug: BH+  H+ + B (unionized) Ion trapping Cell membranes are less permeable to ionized compounds H+ HA A- B BH+

23 Ionization depends on pH and pKa
Acidic drug: Ka = [ A ] [HA] pKa = pH - log [ A ] [HA] pKa-pH 10 pH-pKa = Basic drug:

24 Cromolyn Sodium (色甘酸钠) pKa=2, Acidic
Example Cromolyn Sodium (色甘酸钠) pKa=2, Acidic Stomach:pH=4 Plasma:pH=7 Total HAH+ + A A + H+HA Total 101 1 102 105 1 100001 [ A ] [HA] [ A ] [HA] 10pH-pKa = 10pH-pKa = = 104-2 = 102 = 107-2 = 105

25 2. Filtration Small molecules diffusion through aqueous channels
Water solubility Small molecular Diameter of aqueous channels in Capillary wall: 4-8Å(=1010m ) Only for water, urea filtration >100 not permeable

26 Intracellular cleft: big hole
Intracellular cleft: 40Å, all solute in blood are permeable except protein Intracellular cleft

27 3. Carrier-mediated transport
Requiring carrier Structure specific Saturable (functional protein molecules are limited) Competitive inhibition Active transport Against concentration gradient Requires coupling of energy (hydrolysis of ATP) Facilitated diffusion Along concentration gradient Requires no energy

28 Section 2 Disposition of drug in the body
Ch. 2 Disposition of drug in the body Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism and Excretion

29 1.Absorption Transfer of a drug from its site of administration to the blood stream Oral ingestion Major site: intestine Longer transit time = 3 hours Larger surface area of villus Abundant blood flow pH5-8 good for most of drugs

30 Fick’s Law of Diffusion Area×Permeability coefficient
Flux (molecules per unit time) Area×Permeability coefficient Thickness =(C1-C2)× Oral cavity l .0 m2 Stomach m2 Small intestine 100 m2 Large intestine m2 Rectum m2

31 First pass elimination
Before drug reaches the systemic circulation, the drug can be metabolized in the liver or intestine. Intestine wall Portal vein Site of action Metabolism Stool

32 Intramuscular & subcutaneous injection
Passive diffusion + Filtration Rapid and complete absorption

33 Inhalation Gaseous or volatile substances and aerosol can reach the absorptive site of the lung. Highly available area of absorption (alveolus area = m2; pulmonary capillary area = 80 m2 Rapid, no first pass effect, directly reach desired site of action (asthma, COPD)

34 Transdermal Transdermal skin patches-
Lipid soluble drugs can be absorpted via skin Nifedipine Glycerol trinitrate

35 2.Distribution Receptor Tissue Blood
Process by which a drug reversibly leaves he blood stream and enters the interstitial or cellular fluids of the body. Free drug  Bound Drug Metabolites Receptor Free  bound Tissue Free  bound Blood Excretion

36 Factors that affect drug distribution
Physical and chemical characteristics of the drug (lipid to water partition coefficient) Cardiac output Capillary permeability in various tissues Lipid content of the tissue Binding to plasma protein and tissue

37 Plasma protein binding
[DP] [PT] KD +[D] [D] D+P DP KD Reversible equilibrium Saturable DP: Non-permeable Nonspecific & competitive Plasma proteins Albumin: Weak acids alpha-acid glycoprotein: Weak bases Effects of plasma protein binding Free fraction: active, excreted, metabolized the more binding, the less active drug the more binding, the less excreted and metabolized: “longer half-life”

38 Drug interaction of plasma protein binding
Drug A: 1000 molecules + Drug B w/ 94% bound 99.9% bound 90.0% bound 1 molecules free 100 molecules free 100-fold increase in free pharmacologically active concentration at site of action. Effective TOXIC

39 Blood-brain barrier, BBB
The row of capillary epithelial cells that regulates transfer of drug to the brain. Tight junctions Endothelial cells and associated astrocytes are stitched together by structures Only drugs having a high lipid-water partition coefficient will diffuse into the brain.

40 Placental barrier Structure (a number of tissue layers) between fetal and maternal blood. Drugs must be able to diffuse across lipid barriers to enter the fetus. No barrier effect on drug transport

41 3. Metabolism, Biotransformation
Enzymatic alteration of a drug molecule Sites of metabolism Most meds are biotransformed in the liver It can occur in renal tissue, lungs, blood plasma, and intestinal mucosa

Enzyme induction Speeds up metabolism, increases drug clearance, decreases concentrations of substrates No inducer phenobarbitone benzo-pyrene Clazolimine concentration (µg/g tissue) Time(hr) In rats Consequences of Induction Increased rate of metabolism Decrease in drug plasma concentration Enhanced oral first pass metabolism Reduced bioavailability If metabolite is active or reactive, increased drug effects or toxicity

47 Enzyme inhibition Consequences of Inhibition
Slows down metabolism, decreases drug clearance, increases concentration of substrates Consequences of Inhibition Increase in the plasma concentration of parent drug Reduction in metabolite concentration Exaggerated and prolonged pharmacological effects Increased likelihood of drug-induced toxicity

48 The ways by which a drug is excreted by the kidney
4. Excretion The process by which a drug or metabolite is eliminated from the body The ways by which a drug is excreted by the kidney Routes of excretion Kidney (most important) Biliary tract and the feces Others: expired air, sweat, saliva, tears and breast milk Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR): 125ml/min Urine 1ml/min Plasma flow 650ml/min Acid Base 99% of H20 + Lipid soluble drugs organic anion transporting polypeptide, OATP Organic Cation Transporters OCT Filtration Active secretion Reabsorption

2. Clearance,CL Volume of blood in a defined region of the body that is cleared of a drug in a unit time (mL/min). CLtotal = D/AUC CLtotal=CLrenal+CLliver+CLothers

64 3. Volume of distribution, Vd
Volume in which drug appears to distribute Vd not physical volume. Vd = Dose (known)/Cp (known) Vd is proportionality constant

65 Basic drugs accumulate in tissue  high Vd
Vd of Selected drugs Acidic drugs Basic drugs Amphoteric drugs Neutral drugs plasma 4 L Basic drugs accumulate in tissue  high Vd Intercellular 10 L Drug Volume (L/70kg) Mepacrine(阿的平) 40000 Chloroquine(氯喹) 17000 Amphetamine(苯丙胺) 300 Propranolol(普萘洛尔) 250 Theophylline(氨茶碱) 30 Tolbutamide(甲苯磺丁脲) 6 Intracellular 28 L Total:42 L

66 Application of Vd Estimate of how well the drug is distributed.
Value < L/kg indicate the drug is mainly in the circulatory system. Values > 50 L/ (70kg) indicate the drug has accumulated in specific tissues. e.g. digoxin 5mg0.78 ng/ml Vd = 645 L, mainly in lipid tissue and muscle including cardiac muscle Calculation of dosage to be given: Vd=D/C

Toxicity Death Median lethal dose (LD50 or LC50) TD50

91 Therapeutic Index Measure of the safety of a drug
Also known as therapeutic ratio or margin of safety.

92 Minimum toxic concentration Minimum effective concentration
Therapeutic window The range of concentration over which a drug is therapeutically beneficial and safe. Therapeutic window may vary from patient to patient Minimum toxic concentration Minimum effective concentration Therapeutics window Drugs w/ narrow therapeutic windows require smaller & more frequent doses or a different method of administration

93 Mechanisms of Drug Action
Section 2 Ch. 3 Mechanisms of Drug Action

94 Four consequent levels of drug action
1. Molecule (drug target): the immediate and first step of drug action 2. Cell: cellular function is physically inhibited or “turned on” 3. Tissue:alteration of tissue function (e.g. heart, lung, stomach…) 4. System:alteration of system function (e.g. cardiovascular, pulmonary, digestive…)

95 Molecular drug targets – Total: 482
Receptors Enzymes Transporters Symporters (共转运体) Antiporters (反向转运体) Iron Channels Specific Targets metal ion Surfactant Protein Nucleic Acids

96 Drug – Receptor Interaction
Section 4 Ch. 3 Drug – Receptor Interaction

97 Physio-pharmacological effect
1. Receptor A macromolecular component of the organism that binds the drug and initiates its effect. Second messenger Physio-pharmacological effect

98 2. Drug – receptor interaction
Characteristics of Drug-Receptor Interactions Chemical Bond: ionic, hydrogen, hydrophobic, Van der Waals, and covalent. Saturable Competitive Specific and Selective Structure-activity relationships Transduction mechanisms

99 Occupation theory of drug-receptor interactions
k1 D + R <=> DR k2 By Law of mass action: [D]•[R]•K1= [DR]•K2 Therefore K2 /K1= Kd = [D]•[R]/[DR] If RT = total # of receptors, then RT = [R] + [DR] Replace [R] by (RT-[DR]) & rearrange: Effect D = 0:effect = 0 D>>Kd:DR/RT=100%, max effect Kd=D, Kd = Conc at EC50 [DR] [D] RT Kd + [D] effect = = Max. effect

100 3. Affinity and Intrinsic activity
The strength of binding between a drug and receptor KD is inversely proportional to affinity Intrinsic Activity  : The extent to which the ligand activates the receptor E Emax [DR] = 100%    0 RT

101 4. Classification of drugs
Full agonist: = 100%,Efficacy = Emax Partial agonist: 0% <  < 100%, Efficacy < Emax Antagonist:  = 0% ,Effficay = 0 100 Drug concentration Full agonist Partial agonist Antagonist 50 % Maximum effect

102 Competitive antagonist
Binds to same site for agonist-binding domain Competes with an agonist for receptors High doses of an agonist can generally overcome antagonist 10-2 10-1 1 10 102 103 104 105 Fractional occupancy 0.1 1.0 Agonist concentration Antagonist concentration

103 Noncompetitive antagonist
Binds to a site other than the agonist-binding domain Induces a conformation change in the receptor such that the agonist no longer “recognizes” the agonist binding site. Antagonist concentration 1 10 100 1.0 0.5 Fractional occupancy 10-2 10-1 102 Agonist concentration High doses of an agonist do not overcome the antagonist in this situation

104 Spare receptors High affinity agonist produced maximal response without total receptor occupancy – increase sensitivity of the system Magnitude of response IS NOT proportional to receptor occupancy Spare receptors can bind extra ligand preventing an exaggerated response if too much ligand is present MAX MAX

105 5. Type of receptors Channel linked receptors :
Example: the ACh receptor, signal is neurotransmitter, depolarization is signal, Na+ channel is target.

106 5. Type of receptors 2. G-protein coupled receptors:
Signal through trimeric G proteins. The proteins can alter the function of many proteins.

107 5. Type of receptors 3. Enzyme linked receptors:
Usually signal through protein kinases or protein phosphatases. Protein modification then alters intracellular enzyme activity. 结合区

108 5. Type of receptors 4. Intracellular receptors Hormone receptors
Signal binds directly to an intracellular protein which then activates transcription.

109 6. Second messengers Primitive signal binds with receptor and then trigger second messenger Intracellular effect Receptor First messengers Second messengers Small, nonprotein, water-soluble molecules or ions Readily spread throughout the cell by diffusion Two most widely used second messengers are: 1. Cycle AMP 2. Calcium ions Ca2+ ( cAMP,IP3,DG,)

110 Signal amplification Amplification No amplification Receptor G-protein Adenylyl cyclase Cyclic cAMP Protein kinases Phosphates tranferred to target proteins 10-10M Adr in blood   blood glucose levels by 50% Results in a tremendous increase in the potency of the initial signal permits precise control of cell behavior

111 7. Receptor regulation Sensitization (hypersensitization, supersensitivity)or Up-regulation Prolonged/continuous use of receptor blocker Inhibition of synthesis or release of hormone/neurotransmitter Desensitization or Down- regulation Prolonged/continuous use of agonist Inhibition of degradation or uptake of agonist

112 Receptor regulation Homologous desensitization
Affecting responses elicited only by the stimulated receptor Can reflect feedback from a transducer (or effector) unique to the pathway of the receptor (X1) or from an off-pathway component (K) that is sensitive to the activation state of the receptor. Heterologous desensitization Acting on several receptors or on a pathway that is common to many receptors. Initiated by transducers or effectors common to multiple receptor signaling pathways (Y or Z).

116 Section 2 Ch. 4 Biological Factors

117 Many factors affect drug response

118 1. Age Age related change: 1. liver metabolism; 2. renal elimination;
3. body composition liver metabolism- less amount of drug metabolizing enzymes in newborn infants Older people usually take more drugs, also may have more difficulty following complicated instructions for taking drugs.

119 Developmental profile of hepatic drug metabolizing enzymes
1. Age Developmental profile of hepatic drug metabolizing enzymes CYP3A7 Most drug-metabolizing enzymes Enzyme level Birth Adulthood Elderly Age

120 2. Gender Women have more CYP3A in the liver
Estrogen and progestin inhibit CYP450 leading to a lower CL of drugs in women Women tend to take more medications, including dietary supplements, than men

121 3. Body Size / Obesity Vd changed CL changed

122 PK changed 4. Disease Liver disease: Kidney disease:
Cell damage  Reduction DME activity GFR decreased Excretion decreased PK changed

123 4. Disease CYP2E1 CYP2D6 CYP1A2 CYP2C19

124 5. Placebo effects Total response Pharmacological effect
Non-specific drug effect Total response Placebo effect Non-specific medical effect Natural recovery Often caused by psychological factors, patient-physician interaction Effective rates: 30%, pain, anxiety, angina, heart failure Adverse drug reactions: 30% dizzy, debility, nausea, abdominal pain, diarrhea, leucocyte

125 Placebo effects: 医生良好的语言不是药物胜似药物
医生应学会讲话 四句话说死病人(一个真实故事) 一久病农村病人进城专家门诊 “你来晚了” “没治了” “回家吧”,病人求 “你早干什么去了”

126 6. Variation in response Tolerance
is a person's diminished response to a drug, which occurs when the drug is used repeatedly and the body adapts to the continued presence of the drug. Resistance refers to the ability of microorganisms or cancer cells to withstand the effects of a drug usually effective against them.

127 7. Genetic factor Single nucleotide polymorphism wt/wt wt/m m/m
