The purpose of this project was to formulate, modify and evaluate nanoparticles for targeting asialoglycoprotein receptor found in large numbers exclusively on hepatocyte surfaces. Our goal is to increase the efficacy, reduce the side effects and the cost of the hydrophilic drugs administered to...
Arsenic is a proven human carcinogen and associated with a myriad of other adverse health effects. This metalloid is methylated in human liver to monomethylarsonic acid (MMAV), monomethylarsonous acid (MMAIII), dimethylarsinic acid (DMAV), and dimethylarsinous acid (DMAIII) and eliminated...
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) ligands and heavy metals are environmental co-contaminants and their molecular interaction may disrupt the coordinated regulation of AhR-dependent phase I and II drug metabolizing enzymes. As such, the effect of the heavy metal, As(III), on the AhR-regulated genes...
Cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCA) of the liver was the target of more interest, recently, due mainly to its increased incidence and possible association to new environmental factors. Somatic mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations have been found in several cancers. Some of these malignancies contain...
Roles of Acyl-CoA:Diacylglycerol Acyltransferases 1 and 2 in Triacylglycerol Synthesis and Secretion in HepatocytesDownload
Triacylglycerol (TG) metabolism with its high-energy potential is stringently regulated. Unbalanced TG regulation, either too much TG that overwhelms cellular storage capacity or too little TG due to defects in adipogenesis, is associated with various metabolic disorders. TG can be exported from...
The effect of oral lipids and lipoproteins on the biodistribution, metabolism and electrocardiographic side-effects of halofantrineDownload
In the past, hyperlipidemia (HL) has been shown to affect the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of lipophilic drugs extensively bound to lipoproteins, including halofantrine (HF). The present thesis examined the effect of HL on the biodistribution, metabolism and electrocardiographic...
The effects of hyperlipidemia on the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic aspects of amiodarone and ketoconazoleDownload
The influence of hyperlipidemia on the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic aspects of lipophilic drugs was explored. The antiarrhythmic, amiodarone, and the antifungal, (±)-ketoconazole, were used as model drugs. Experimental hyperlipidemia was induced in rat using poloxamer 407 and two sensitive...
