Example text

Effects of Disease Obviously, hepatic or renal disease can have major consequences for drug disposition. Half-lives for many drugs increase in those with cirrhosis, hepatitis, and obstructive jaundice. Chronic liver disease has the most impact on drugs that are normally cleared in large amounts by the liver. Both drug metabolizing activity and hepatic blood flow may be reduced by portosystemic shunting, which diverts portal blood directly to the systemic circulation. For most drugs, a reduction in drug dosage or a dose interval is necessary.

If this deficiency is unattended, kernicterus may ensue. The postneonatal period is also a time of rapid structural and physiologic changes, including the capacity to metabolize drugs. Therefore calculation of dosage based solely on body weight or surface area may not always be appropriate. In the elderly, one sees diminished renal plasma flow and glomerular filtration rate; decreased hepatic phase I but not phase II drug metabolism; diminished Vd due to loss of body water compartment; decreased muscle mass; decreased or increased adipose tissue; and decreased first-pass effect.

Using between-group statistical analysis, there were no statistically significant differences between the placebo and non-placebo groups at baseline or at week 8 of treatment. Echocardiography studies showed no significant improvement in either group and no significant differences between the 2 groups at baseline or during the treatment period.
