Depletion of intracellular ATP with antimycin A has been shown to inhibit the internalization of several types of receptors, including beta adrenergic and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors. The effects of antimycin A treatment on conversion of beta and alpha-1 adrenergic receptors to a form exhibiting low apparent affinity for agonists in assays with intact cells were investigated, because conversion to the low-affinity form has been postulated to result from receptor internalization. Treatment of DDT1 MF-2 hamster smooth muscle cells with antimycin A greatly decreased conversion of beta adrenergic receptors to the form exhibiting low affinity for agonists. Binding of antagonists to intact cell beta adrenergic receptors was not altered by antimycin A. In contrast to the results with beta adrenergic receptors, conversion of alpha-1 adrenergic receptors to the low-affinity form was not inhibited by antimycin A. These results are consistent with the possible involvement of receptor internalization in conversion to the low affinity form for beta adrenergic receptors. They also provide further evidence that different mechanisms may be involved in conversion to the low-affinity form or in the internalization pathway in the case of alpha-1 adrenergic receptors.

The purpose of this study was to examine the external predictability of an in vitro-in vivo correlation (IVIVC) for a metoprolol hydrophilic matrix extended-release formulation, with an acceptable internal predictability, in the presence of a range of formulation/manufacturing changes. In addition, this report evaluated the predictability of the IVIVC for another formulation of metoprolol tartrate differing in its release mechanism. Study 1 examined the scale up of a matrix extended-release tablet from a 3-kg small batch (I) to a 50-kg large batch (II). The second study examined the influence of scale and processing changes [3-kg small batch with fluid bed granulation and drying (III); 80-kg large batch with high shear granulation and microwave drying (IV), and a formulation with an alternate release mechanism formulated as a multiparticulate capsule (V)]. In vitro dissolution of all formulations (I-V) was conducted with a USP apparatus I at pH 6.8 and 150 rpm. Subjects received the metoprolol formulations, and serial blood samples were collected over 48 h and analyzed by a validated HPLC assay using fluorescence detection. A previously developed IVIVC was used to predict plasma profiles. Prediction errors (PE) were <10% for C(max) and area under the curve (AUC) of concentration versus time for I, II, and IV. The C(max) for III was slightly underestimated (11.7%); however, the PE of the AUC was <10%. Formulation V displayed a PE for C(max) > 20% and an AUC within 5% of observed values. The low PEs for C(max) and AUC observed for I-IV strongly suggest that the metoprolol IVIVC is externally valid, predictive of alternate processing methods (IV), scale-up (II, III), and allows the in vitro dissolution data to be used as a surrogate for validation studies. However, the lack of predictability for V supports the contention that IVIVCs are formulation specific.

An overview of the current pharmacotherapy of central vestibular syndromes and the most common forms of central nystagmus as well as cerebellar disorders is given. 4-aminopyridine (4-AP) is recommended for the treatment of downbeat nystagmus, a frequent form of acquired persisting fixation nystagmus, and upbeat nystagmus. Animal studies showed that this non-selective blocker of voltage-gated potassium channels increases Purkinje cell excitability and normalizes the irregular firing rate, so that the inhibitory influence of the cerebellar cortex on vestibular and deep cerebellar nuclei is restored. The efficacy of 4-AP in episodic ataxia type 2, which is most often caused by mutations of the PQ-calcium channel, was demonstrated in a randomized controlled trial. It was also shown in an animal model (the tottering mouse) of episodic ataxia type 2. In a case series, chlorzoxazone, a non-selective activator of small-conductance calcium-activated potassium channels, was shown to reduce the DBN. The efficacy of acetyl-DL-leucine as a potential new symptomatic treatment for cerebellar diseases has been demonstrated in three case series. The ongoing randomized controlled trials on episodic ataxia type 2 (sustained-release form of 4-aminopyridine vs. acetazolamide vs. placebo; EAT2TREAT), vestibular migraine with metoprolol (PROVEMIG-trial), cerebellar gait disorders (sustained-release form of 4-aminopyridine vs. placebo; FACEG) and cerebellar ataxia (acetyl-DL-leucine vs. placebo; ALCAT) will provide new insights into the pharmacotherapy of cerebellar and central vestibular disorders.

Previous studies have compared the outcome between patients with and without a confirmed acute myocardial infarction (AMI) mainly during the first few years after its onset. Our aim was to compare the prognosis between patients with and without a confirmed AMI during 10 years of follow-up. Patients participating in an early intervention trial with metoprolol in suspected AMI between 1976 and 1981 took part in this evaluation. The total 10-year mortality rate including hospital mortality was 51% for patients with confirmed AMI as compared with 32% for patients with a possible AMI and 23% for patients in whom AMI was definitely ruled out (p < 0.001). The 10-year mortality after discharge from hospital was in AMI 46%, possible AMI 32% and in definitely ruled out AMI 23% (p < 0.001). When simultaneously considering age, sex, previous history of cardiovascular disease and smoking, the development of AMI appeared as an independent predictor of death (p < 0.001). Thus, among patients hospitalized due to suspected AMI, 10-year mortality after discharge from hospital was directly related to the diagnosis during the first 3 days in hospital.

Hemodynamic effects of m--nifedipine (m--Nif) combined with metoprolol (Met) were studied in conscious rabbits with impedance cardiography. Administration of m--Nif by intravenous injection (20 micrograms/kg) or by intraduodenal route (0.25 mg/kg) increased cardiac index (CI) and reduced total peripheral resistance (TPR) and arterial pressure. Intravenous injection of Met significantly slowed heart rate without great change in other hemodynamic parameters in conscious rabbits. Combination of m--Nif with Met gained the advantages of both m--Nif and Met. The negative effects of Met on CI and TPR were balanced by the vasodilatory effect of m--Nif. The difference between the results of m--Nif combined with equal dose of Met or with five times the dose of Met was just that further decrease of heart rate was observed. These results suggest that combined administration of m--Nif with Met may be more beneficial than giving each drug alone. It may be more suitable to use m--Nif combined with low doses of Met in order to avoid the danger of depressing myocardium.

lopressor review

The influence of various beta-blockers on tear production in rabbits was studied by means of direct cannulation of the lacrimal gland excretory duct. Tear production was significantly decreased (p less than 0,001) after systemic (I.M.) administration of either selective beta 1-blockers (metoprolol, betaxolol), B2-selective (butoxamine) or non-selective ones (timolol, propranolol) or finally those with I.S.A. (oxprenolol), although differences in the size of tear production decreasing response of each beta-blocker were recorded. Bilateral topical application of timolol (50 microliters of 0,5% b.i.d. for three days), decreased also tear production significantly, while the response of betaxolol administered under the same regime was rather negligible. It is concluded that although beta 2 adrenergic receptors are mainly involved in tear production, the administration of selective beta 1-blockers in high doses disappears their selectivity, decreasing tear production too.

The effect of treatment for 1--4 weeks with metoprolol, a beta 1-selective blocking agent, or alprenolol, on the heart rate and blood pressure response to isometric exercise was studied in two groups of 12 patients with angina. Measurements were made during the peak effect of metoprolol 10, 40 or 50 mg, and alprenolol 200 mg as Aptin Durules. After 1 min of sustained handgrip at 50% of maximal voluntary contraction, systolic (6--15%) and diastolic (8--12%) blood pressure after both drugs was significantly lower than without any beta-blockade; Heart rate was decreased by 19--22% by metroprolol but not by alprenolol. The blood pressure rise during handgrip was not attenuated by either drug. The rise in heart rate was significantly reduced (by 36--50%) by metoprolol 40 and 50 mg and alprenolol 200 mg. No patient experienced angina during handgrip. In contrast, all but one were restricted by angina during bycycle exercise without treatment, at a level that produced the same increase in heart rate as the handgrip test, vis. 3 min at a load of 33 W). The cardiovascular response to sustained handgrip is too small to provide a useful challenge for determinatin of the anti-anginal efficacy of drugs. However, slight ECG changes of ischaemia did occur during handgrip, which were reversed by beta-blockade.

We previously showed that Qiliqiangxin (QL) capsules could ameliorate cardiac hypertrophy and remodeling in a mouse model of pressure overload. Here, we compared the effects of QL alone with those of QL combined with the following 3 types of antihypertensive drugs on cardiac remodeling and dysfunction induced by pressure overload for 4 weeks in mice: an angiotensin II type 1 receptor (AT1-R) blocker (ARB), an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEI), and a β-adrenergic receptor (β-AR) blocker (BB). Adult male mice (C57B/L6) were subjected to either transverse aortic constriction or sham operation for 4 weeks, and the drugs (or saline) were orally administered through gastric tubes. Cardiac function and remodeling were evaluated through echocardiography, catheterization, histology, and analysis of hypertrophic gene expression. Cardiomyocyte apoptosis and autophagy, AT1-R and β1-AR expression, and cell proliferation-related molecules were also examined. Although pressure overload-induced cardiac remodeling and dysfunction, hypertrophic gene reprogramming, AT1-R and β1-AR expression, and ERK phosphorylation were significantly attenuated by QL alone, QL + ARB, QL + ACEI, and QL + BB, the attenuation was stronger in the combination treatment groups. Moreover, apoptosis was reduced to a larger extent by each combination treatment than by QL alone, whereas autophagy was more strongly attenuated by either QL + ARB or QL + ACEI. None of the treatments significantly upregulated ErbB2 or ErbB4 phosphorylation, and none significantly downregulated C/EBPβ expression. Therefore, the effects of QL on chronic pressure overload-induced cardiac remodeling may be significantly increased when QL is combined with an ARB, an ACEI, or a BB.

This review has evaluated the Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS) and improvements have been proposed. The BCS has a very strict solubility/dissolution limit, a generous P(e)-limit (> or = 14-times higher rate constant limit for dissolution than for permeation), and is stricter for drugs with a long half-life (t(1/2)). Available human in-vivo, in-vitro, and in-silico P(e)-methods cannot classify P(e) for moderately to highly permeable substances sufficiently well, and in-vitro data often underpredict the in-vivo dissolution potential and rate. Good in-vivo dissolution and absorption can be expected for most high P(e) drug products. It has not been possible to find a highly permeable product with a Dose number (D(o)) < 385 (< 2400 in the fed state) that is clearly incompletely absorbed, and near complete uptake has been shown for a drug product with a D(o) of 660000. The potential implication of these findings is that many true BCS Class I drug products are incorrectly classified. This could be a reason for the limited use of this system. On this basis, it has been suggested that: the limit for high for solubility/dissolution is decreased (to > 40 and > 95% dissolved within 30 min and 3 h, respectively); the limit for high P(e) is increased (to >P(e) of metoprolol); accurate P(e)-models or in-vivo fraction absorbed data are used; solubility/dissolution tests are performed using real or validated simulated gastrointestinal fluids; in-vitro/in-vivo dissolution relationships are established; the t(1/2) is considered; and the rate-limiting step for in-vivo absorption is determined. A major change could be to reduce the BCS into two classes: permeation-rate (Class I) or dissolution-rate (Class II) limited absorption. It is believed that this could give a better balance and increase the number of biowaivers.

The influence of nifedipine, verapamil, diltiazem, metoprolol, and enalapril on the basal and angiotensin II (Ang II)-induced elevation of [3H]thymidine incorporation into vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) DNA was examined. Our results from four independent experiments, each performed in triplicate, are summarized by calculating the half-maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50) of the drugs. Nifedipine, verapamil, and diltiazem had IC50 values of 2.3 +/- 0.7 x 10(-6), 3.5 +/- 0.3 x 10(-6), and 6.6 +/- 2.8 x 10(-6) M, respectively. Metoprolol had an IC50 value of 49 +/- 16 x 10(-6) M, whereas enalapril was completely ineffective. All drugs used had no influence on the basal cell [3H]thymidine incorporation. This in vitro study allows one to conclude that the calcium-entry blockers can inhibit the Ang II-induced cell growth and thus may have beneficial effects on the development and regression of vascular growth, which is associated with the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases.

Although the enteric reflex pathway triggered by volume distension is known to depend on an adrenergic nerve, it is not known whether the slowing of intestinal transit by fat or peptide YY (PYY) also depends on an adrenergic pathway. The aim of this study was to test the hypotheses that the slowing of transit by fat or PYY may depend on a beta-adrenergic pathway, and this adrenergic pathway may act via the serotonergic and opioid pathways previously observed for the slowing of transit by fat. Eighteen dogs were equipped with duodenal and midgut fistulas. The small intestine was compartmentalized into the proximal and distal half of gut. The role of adrenergic, serotonergic, and opioid pathways was then tested in the slowing of intestinal transit by fat, PYY, and norepinephrine. Intestinal transit results were compared as the cumulative percent marker of recovery over 30 min. We found that the slowing of transit by fat, PYY, or norepinephrine was reversed by propranolol. In addition, the slowing effect of fat was reversed by metoprolol (beta1-adrenoreceptor antagonist) but not phentolamine (alpha-adrenoreceptor antagonist). Furthermore, norepinephrine-induced slowing of transit was reversed by ondansetron (5-HT3 receptor antagonist) or naloxone (opioid receptor antagonist). Extending these physiological results, we also found by immunohistochemistry that beta1-adrenoreceptors are expressed by neurons of the intrinsic plexuses of the small intestine. We conclude that the slowing of intestinal transit by fat or PYY buy lopressor depends on a beta-adrenergic pathway and that this adrenergic pathway acts on serotonergic and opioid pathways.

We have demonstrated previously that (-)isoproterenol triggers lipolysis in rat epididymal fat cells by stimulating both classical (beta 1, beta 2) and atypical beta-adrenoceptors. The contribution of the classical beta-adrenoceptors can be blocked by addition of 3 nM CGP12177(di-4-3[(1,1-dimethylethyl)amino]-(2 buy lopressor -hydroxylpropoxy )1,3-dihydro-2H-benzimidazol-2-one hydrochloride). At higher concentrations, CGP12177 triggers lipolysis also, but by stimulating atypical beta-adrenoceptors only. To find out whether (-)isoproterenol and CGP12177 stimulate similar atypical beta-adrenoceptors, we compared their interaction with recognised beta 3-adrenoceptor antagonists: CGP20712 (1-[2-((3-carbamoyl-4-hydroxy)phenoxy)ethylamino]-3-[4-(1-methyl- 4-trifluoromethyl-2-imidazolyl)phenoxy]-propan-2-ol) (beta 1-selective), ICI118551 [erythro-1-(7-methylindan-4-yloxy)-3- (isopropylamine)-butan-2-ol] (beta 2-selective) and the stereoisomers as well as the racemic mixture of propranolol (non-beta 1/beta 2-subtype selective) and of metoprolol (beta 1-selective). There was a highly significant relationship (r = 0.93) between the potencies of these antagonists for inhibiting the lipolytic response to (-)isoproterenol (in the absence of classical beta-adrenoceptor stimulation) and CGP12177. In both cases, propranolol and metoprolol showed also the same degree of stereoselectivity. These findings suggest that (-)isoproterenol and CGP12177 stimulate the same type and/or form of atypical beta-adrenoceptors in rat epididymal adipocytes.

Cardiac surgery results in significant impairment of beta-adrenergic receptor (beta AR) function and is a cause of depressed myocardial function after surgery. We previously demonstrated that acute administration of beta AR blocker during cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) in an animal buy lopressor model of coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery attenuates beta AR desensitization, whereas chronic oral beta-blockade therapy in patients undergoing CABG surgery does not prevent it. Therefore we hypothesized that acute administration of metoprolol during CABG surgery would prevent acute myocardial beta AR desensitization. A placebo-controlled initial phase (n = 72) was performed whereby patients were randomized to either metoprolol 10 mg or placebo immediately before CPB. Then a second dose-finding study was performed where patients received 20 mg (n = 20) or 30 mg (n = 20) of metoprolol. Hemodynamic monitoring, atrial membrane adenylyl cyclase activity, atrial beta AR density, and postoperative outcomes were measured. All groups showed similar decreases in isoproterenol-stimulated adenylyl cyclase activity (13%-24%). Cardiac output remained similar in all 4 groups throughout the intraoperative and postoperative period. In addition, patients receiving metoprolol 20 or 30 mg had less supraventricular arrhythmias 24 h postoperatively compared with patients receiving metoprolol 10 mg or placebo. Therefore, unlike our previous animal model of CABG surgery, metoprolol did not attenuate myocardial beta AR desensitization.

Bevantolol hydrochloride Cefixime Suspension Cost , a new beta-adrenoceptor antagonist, has been shown to be cardioselective in animals. To evaluate its selectivity in humans, a double-blind, crossover study was conducted in 8 asthmatics. Following a single oral dose of placebo, bevantolol 75 or 150 mg or propranolol hydrochloride 40 mg, forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1), heart rate, blood pressure and skeletal muscle tremor were measured before and after 4 increasing intravenous doses of terbutaline sulfate to establish terbutaline dose-response curves. The FEV1 decreased after all active treatments. During terbutaline infusions there was an increase in FEV1 after both bevantolol doses and placebo. The terbutaline dose-response curve after bevantolol shifted to the right, however. After propranolol, there was no increase in FEV1 during terbutaline stimulation. Heart rate and skeletal muscle tremor showed a similar pattern during the experiment. In dosages that have previously been shown to produce at least the same degree of blockade of exercise-induced tachycardia, bevantolol has less influence on terbutaline-induced bronchodilation, heart rate increase and skeletal muscle tremor than did propranolol. Thus bevantolol has relative beta 1-adrenoceptor antagonist selectivity. Drawing upon the results of a previous study in the same patients, we believe bevantolol, atenolol and metoprolol have similar beta 1-selectivity.

Mixture models are applied in population pharmacometrics to characterize underlying population distributions that are not adequately approximated by a single normal or lognormal distribution. In addition to obtaining individualized maximum a posteriori Bayesian post hoc parameter estimates, the subpopulation to which an individual was classified can be determined. However, the accuracy of the classification of subjects to subpopulations is not well studied. We investigated the impact Diflucan Dosage Child of several factors on the accuracy of classification in mixture models applied to pharmacokinetics using a simulation strategy. The availability of actual subject data allowed us to evaluate mixture model classification in a potentially common application, namely, the classification of clearance into poor metabolizer (PM) or extensive metabolizer (EM) subgroups with the known phenotype status in subjects receiving metoprolol. The factors explored in the simulation study were the magnitude of difference between the clearances in two subpopulations, the between subject variability in clearance, the mixing-fraction, and the population sample size. Populations were simulated at various levels of the above factors and analyzed with a mixture model using NONMEM. The population pharmacokinetics of metoprolol were modeled with the EM/PM phenotype as a known covariate, and without the phenotype covariate using a mixture model. Within the range of scenarios studied, the proportion of subjects classified into the correct subpopulation was high. The simulation-estimation study suggests that a greater separation between two subpopulations, a smaller variability in the parameter distribution, a larger sample size, and a smaller size subpopulation tend to be associated with a greater accuracy of subpopulation classification when a mixture model is applied to pharmacokinetic data. In a population pharmacokinetic analysis of metoprolol, a drug that undergoes polymorphic metabolism, it was possible to correctly identify phenotype status using a mixture model.

The penicillin sub-class of β-lactam antibiotics has not been examined for its enantiodiscriminating abilities in capillary electrophoresis (CE) until date. The present work was therefore designed to evaluate penicillin G potassium salt (PenG) as an ion-pair chiral selector (CS) using CE for its several attributes, namely, high solubility in water and lower alcohols, structure allowing multiple interactions with analytes and cost-effectiveness. Systematic experiments were performed to investigate the effect of composition of background electrolyte, applied voltage and capillary temperature on chiral separation. Baseline resolutions of enantiomers of five basic chiral drugs (namely, darifenacin, Epivir Syrup citalopram, sertraline, propranolol and metoprolol) were attained using a background electrolyte composed of water:methanol (90:10, v/v) and consisting of 10.7 or 16.1mM CS at 20°C using an applied voltage of 5kV.

The interaction between metoprolol and bromazepam and lorazepam was studied in 12 healthy male volunteers aged 21-37 years. Metoprolol had no significant effect on the pharmacokinetics of bromazepam or lorazepam. However, bromazepam AUC was 35% higher in the presence of metoprolol. Bromazepam enhanced the effect of metoprolol on systolic blood Deltasone Medication Uses pressure but not on diastolic blood pressure or pulse rate. Lorazepam had no effect on either blood pressure or pulse. Metoprolol did not enhance the effect of bromazepam on the psychomotor tests used in this study. Metoprolol caused a small increase in critical flicker fusion threshold with lorazepam but had no effect on the other tests. Lorazepam (2 mg) was more potent than bromazepam (6 mg) in the doses used in this study. The interaction of metoprolol with bromazepam and lorazepam is unlikely to be of clinical significance. No change in dose is necessary when using these drugs together.

12 healthy women with a mean age of 60 years (range 50-70 years) were treated with 50 mg atenolol or 100 mg metoprolol CR/ZOK or placebo for 1 week in a double-blind, randomized, cross-over study. Laboratory measurements of the cardiovascular responses to exercise were made 2-4 hours after and again 24 hours after the last tablet. Blood pressure and heart rate at rest were reduced equally by the two beta-adrenoceptor antagonists. The reductions in blood pressure and heart rate during graded exercise and then during prolonged steady treadmill exercise 3-4 hours after the tablet were greater for atenolol than metoprolol CR/ZOK. The reductions in cardiac output showed a similar pattern. Lactate concentrations and ratings of perceived exertion tended to be highest on metoprolol CR/ZOK, but these Aciphex Overdose differences were inconsistent. We conclude that despite the changes in the cardiovascular system in these 50-70 year-old women, exercise tolerance was not greatly affected by beta-adrenoceptor blockade.

Previous studies have suggested that sympathetic cardiac blockade enhances baroreflex function, whereas parasympathetic blockade diminishes baroreflex sensitivity and elicits arterial blood pressure (ABP) instability. The aim of this project was to test the hypothesis that sympathetic cardiac blockade was beneficial in maintaining ABP stability during orthostatic challenge. In 8 young healthy subjects, measurements were taken before and after sympathetic cardiac Luvox Pill Identification blockade (beta1-adrenoceptor blockade via metoprolol) in combination with or without parasympathetic blockade (atropine) at rest and during lower body negative pressure (LBNP). Arterial blood samples were obtained to evaluate plasma renin activity (PRA) and norepinephrine (NE). Power spectral analyses were performed on heart rate (HR) and ABP variability. LBNP -50 Torr significantly decreased systolic blood pressure (SBP, -6+/-3 mm Hg) and increased PRA (from 0.72+/-0.23 to 1.75+/-0.24 ng ml(-1) h(-1)) and NE (from 1.02+/-0.11 to 2.13+/-0.32 pg ml(-1)). Low frequency (LF, 0.04-0.12 Hz) SBP and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) variability were significantly augmented by LBNP (4.1+/-1.6 vs. 10.8+/-3.0 mm Hg2, and 3.1+/-1.0 vs. 7.9+/-1.9 mm Hg2, respectively). Following metoprolol, arterial baroreflex sensitivity (assessed by the slope of HR interval to SBP during injection with 1 mug kg(-1) phenylephrine) increased significantly (9.9+/-2.2 to 19.6+/-4.1 ms mm Hg(-1)). With beta1-adrenoceptor blockade, LBNP still decreased SBP (-10+/-2 mm Hg) and increased NE, but did not significantly augment PRA (0.59+/-0.22 vs. 1.03+/-0.18 ng ml(-1) h(-1)), or LF SBP and DBP variability (3.3+/-0.6 vs. 5.7+/-1.3 mm Hg2, and 3.1+/-0.7 vs. 5.4+/-1.1 mm Hg2, respectively). The increased PRA during LBNP remained non-significant following metoprolol combined with atropine, whereas the augmented LF SBP (2.6+/-0.7 vs. 9.9+/-2.8 mm Hg2) and DBP (2.5+/-0.7 vs. 11.1+/-3.0 mm Hg2) variability were significantly accentuated compared to both metoprolol alone and control conditions, accompanied by a greater delta SBP (-17+/-7 mm Hg) and significantly diminished baroreflex gain (0.91+/-0.05 ms/mm Hg). These data suggested that removal of sympathetic cardiac influence improved cardiovascular stability as indicated by a diminished LF ABP variability, which was related to an enhanced cardiac responsiveness.

β-Adrenergic receptors are important targets for drug discovery. We have developed a new β1 -adrenergic receptor cell membrane chromatography (β1 AR-CMC) with offline ultra-performance LC (UPLC) and MS method for screening active ingredients from traditional Chinese medicines. In this study, Chinese hamster ovary-S cells with high β1 AR expression levels were established and used to prepare a cell membrane stationary phase in a β1 AR-CMC model. The retention fractions were separated and identified by the UPLC-MS system. The screening results found that isoimperatorin from Rhizoma et Radix Notopterygii was the targeted component that could act on β1 AR in similar manner of metoprolol as a control drug. In addition, the biological effects of active component were also investigated in order to search for a new type of β1 AR antagonist. It will be a useful method for drug discovery as a leading compound resource.

The objectives were: (1) to develop a more rapid, reduced serum culture system for Caco-2 monolayers, relative to the traditional 21-day, 10% fetal bovine serum (FBS) system; and (2) to determine the biopharmaceutical drug classification of an oral therapeutic agent using this new system. Caco-2 cells were grown in the six well format on polycarbonate filters, in medium containing 2% iron supplemented calf serum (sCS) and a combination of growth factors and hormones. After 4 days in culture, permeabilities of three marker compounds (metoprolol, mannitol, and taurocholate) across monolayers were determined, and compared to permeabilities from the traditional 21-day, 10% FBS system, using cells at similar passage number. Cell morphology, degree of cell differentiation, and the presence of two efflux pumps were assessed. The 2% sCS model was also used to classify the permeability of an oral therapeutic agent as high or low. No difference in permeability was observed for metoprolol transport (P = 0.38) between the two culture methods, and the values obtained were independent of passage number of the cells. Mannitol permeability was about 2-fold higher from the 2% sCS system, as compared to the 10% FBS system. Taurocholate permeability was low indicating the 2% sCS culture at 4 days lacked this particular active transporter capability. Electron micrographs of cells grown in the 2% sCS system at 4 days revealed the presence of microvilli and tight junctions. P-glycoprotein and an efflux pump for furosemide were functionally present. The 2% sCS system indicated the oral therapeutic agent as highly permeable, which agreed with the 10% FBS system. This new system provides a rapid, accurate, and economical option for passive permeability determination, and appears to be applicable to the proposed Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS).
