Although the application of medical marijuana and cannabinoid drugs is controversial, it is a part of modern-day medicine. The list of diseases in which cannabinoids are promoted as a treatment is constantly expanding. Cases of significant improvement in patients with a very poor prognosis of glioma or epilepsy have already been described. However, the occurrence of side effects is still difficult to estimate, and the current knowledge of the therapeutic effects of cannabinoids is still insufficient. In our opinion, the answers to many questions and concerns regarding the medical use of cannabis can be provided by pharmacogenetics...

CRISPR/Cas9 engineering of the CYP3A5 *3 locus (rs776746) in human liver cell line HuH-7 (CYP3A5 *3/*3) led to three CYP3A5 *1 cell lines by deletion of the exon 3B splice junction or point mutation. Cell lines CYP3A5 *1/*3 sd (single deletion), CYP3A5 *1/*1 dd (double deletion) or CYP3A5 *1/*3 pm (point mutation) expressed the CYP3A5 *1 mRNA, had elevated CYP3A5 mRNA (p<0.0005 for all engineered cell lines) and protein expression compared with HuH-7. In metabolism assays, HuH-7 had less tacrolimus (Tac) (all p-values < 0...

Rosehip, the fruit of Rosa canina L., has traditionally been used to treat urate metabolism disorders; however, its effects on such disorders have not been characterized in detail. Therefore, the present study investigated the effects of hot water, ethanol and ethyl acetate extracts of rosehip on xanthine oxidase (XO) activity in vitro. In addition, the serum urate lowering effects of the rosehip hot water extract in a mouse model of hyperuricemia (male ddY mice, which were intraperitoneally injected with potassium oxonate) were investigated...

To establish in silico model to predict the structural insight into the metabolic bioactivation pathway of xenobiotics, we considered two specific and one non-specific mammary procarcinogen [e.g., dibenzo[a,l]pyrene (DBP), 7,12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA), and benzo[a]pyrene (BP)]. The CYP1A1, 1B1, 2C9, 1A2 and 2B6 reported in wet-lab studies to actively metabolize DBP also showed strong binding energies (kcal/mol) of -11.50, -10.67, -10.37, -9.76 and -9.72, respectively, with inhibition constants ranging between 0...

Despite advances in testing compatibility between donor and recipient, graft rejection remains a current concern. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that codify altered enzymes of metabolism, drug transport, and the immune system may contribute to graft rejection in transplant patients. This study examined the association between SNPs present in genes of these processes and occurrence of graft rejection episodes in 246 kidney transplant patients, 35% of which were diagnosed with rejection. Genotype-gene expression associations were also assessed...

Malaria, a tropical parasitic disease caused by Plasmodium spp., continues to place a heavy social burden, with almost 200 million cases and more than 580,000 deaths per year. Plasmodium falciparum purine nucleoside phosphorylase (PfPNP) can be targeted for antimalarial drug design since its inhibition kills malaria parasites both in vitro and in vivo. Although the currently known inhibitors of PfPNP, immucillins, are orally available and of low toxicity to animals and humans, to the best of our knowledge, none of these compounds has entered clinical trials for the treatment of malaria...

BACKGROUND: Infants born before 37 weeks' gestation are of public health concern since complications associated with preterm birth are the leading cause of mortality in children under 5 years of age and a major cause of morbidity and lifelong disability. The administration of 17-hydroxyprogesterone caproate (17-OHPC) reduces preterm birth by 33% in women with history spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB). We demonstrated previously that plasma concentrations of 17-OHPC vary widely among pregnant women and that women with 17-OHPC plasma concentrations in the lowest quartile had SPTB rates of 40% vs rates of 25% in those women with higher concentrations...

A critically ill patient with multiple postoperative infections repeatedly required profound voriconazole dose reductions whenever high-dose meropenem was added. Subsequent in vitro assessment confirmed inhibition of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 2C19 and CYP3A4 by meropenem, suggesting that during meropenem narrow therapeutic index drugs metabolized by these CYPs will require close monitoring.

BACKGROUND: Results on the association between prenatal exposure to methylmercury (MeHg) and child neuropsychological development are heterogeneous. Underlying genetic differences across study populations could contribute to this varied response to MeHg. Studies in Drosophila have identified the cytochrome p450 3A (CYP3A) family as candidate MeHg susceptibility genes. OBJECTIVES: We evaluated whether genetic variation in CYP3A genes influences the association between prenatal exposure to MeHg and child neuropsychological development...

Chloramine-T is an antimicrobial agent recognized for its disinfectant properties widely used in food industry. As an N-chloro-compound, chloramine-T contains electrophilic chlorine and in water it hydrolyses to hypochlorite. Chlorine as hypochlorous acid or hypochlorite is a very reactive chemical which can function as both an oxidant and halogenating agent. Because chloramine-T could be involved in the metabolic activation of drugs, in the present study the effects of chloramine-T on the activities of some drug metabolizing enzymes in rat liver microsomes and peroxisome proliferation were determined in vivo...

BACKGROUND: Health foods have been widely sold and consumed in Japan. There has been an increase in reports of adverse effects in association with the expanding health food market. While health food-drug interactions are a particular concern from the viewpoint of safe and effective use of health foods, information regarding such interactions is limited owing to the lack of established methods to assess the effects of health food products on drug metabolism. We therefore developed cells that mimicked the activities of cytochrome P450 1A2 (CYP1A2), CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, and CYP3A4, which strongly contribute to drug metabolism in human hepatocytes, and established a system to assess the inhibitory activity of health foods toward P450-mediated metabolism...

1. Gastrointestinal (GI) intolerability is a concern for drugs such as mycophenolic acid (MPA) and drug metabolism may play a role. Few in vitro models exist that allow for the pre-clinical evaluation of a potential role of drug metabolism in intestinal drug toxicity. Thus, we sought to develop an in vitro model based on the human colon adenocarcinoma cell line LS180 to investigate MPA's negative effects on intestinal cells. 2. Stability of expression of key enzymes of MPA metabolism (UGT1A7, UGT1A9, UGT1A10, UGT2B7, CYP3A4, and CYP3A5), transporters (OATP1B1, OATP1B3, OATP2B1, MRP1, MRP2, and MDR1) and the nuclear receptor PXR over 12 passages in combination with guanosine supplementation to counter MPA's anti-proliferative effects (determined by western blot analysis and proliferation assays, respectively), was established...

Target structure-guided virtual screening (VS) is a versatile, powerful and inexpensive alternative to experimental high-throughput screening (HTS). In order to discover potent CYP1A1 enzyme inhibitors for cancer chemoprevention, a commercially library of 50,000 small molecules was utilized for VS guided by both ligand and structure-based strategies. For experimental validation, 300 ligands were proposed based on combined analysis of fitness scores from ligand based e-pharmacophore screening and docking score, prime MMGB/SA binding affinity and interaction pattern analysis from structure-based VS...

MAM-2201, a synthetic cannabinoid, is a potent agonist of the cannabinoid receptors and is increasingly used as an illicit recreational drug. The inhibitory effects of MAM-2201 on major drug-metabolizing enzymes such as cytochrome P450s (CYPs) and uridine 5'-diphospho-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) have not yet been investigated although it is widely abused, sometimes in combination with other drugs. We evaluated the inhibitory effects of MAM-2201 on eight major human CYPs (CYPs 1A2, 2A6, 2B6, 2C8, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, and 3A4) and six UGTs (UGTs 1A1, 1A3, 1A4, 1A6, 1A9, and 2B7) of pooled human liver microsomes; we thus explored potential MAM-2201-induced drug interactions...

To assess drug-drug interaction (DDI) potential for the 3 direct-acting antiviral (3D) regimen of ombitasvir, dasabuvir and paritaprevir, in vitro studies profiled drug metabolizing enzyme and transporter interactions. Using mechanistic static and dynamic models, DDI potential was predicted for CYP3A, CYP2C8, UGT1A1, OATP1B1/1B3, BCRP and P-gp. Perpetrator static model DDI predictions for metabolizing enzymes were within 2-fold of the clinical observations but for drug transporters, additional PBPK modeling was necessary to achieve the same...

Cholesterol-lowering response to 40 mg simvastatin daily for 6 weeks was examined for associations with common genetic polymorphisms in key genes affecting simvastatin metabolism (CYP3A4 and CYP3A5) and transport (SLCO1B1). In white people (n = 608), SLCO1B1 521C was associated with lesser reductions of total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol. Associations between SLCO1B1 521C and cholesterol response were not detected in African Americans (n = 333). Associations between CYP3A4*22 or CYP3A5*3 and cholesterol response were not detected in either race, and no significant race-gene or gene-gene interactions were detected...

Quantitative analysis of transporter- and enzyme-mediated complex drug-drug interactions (DDIs) is challenging. Repaglinide (RPG) is transported into the liver by OATP1B1 and then is metabolized by CYP2C8 and CYP3A4. The purpose of this study is to describe the complex DDIs of RPG quantitatively based on unified physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models using in vitro Ki values for OATP1B1, CYP3A4, and/or CYP2C8. Cyclosporin A (CsA) or gemfibrozil (GEM) increased the blood concentrations of RPG. The time profiles of RPG and the inhibitors were analyzed by PBPK models, considering the inhibition of OATP1B1 and CYP3A4 by CsA, or OATP1B1 inhibition by GEM and its glucuronide and the mechanism-based inhibition of CYP2C8 by GEM glucuronide...

BACKGROUND: Data on the frequency of pharmacogenetic polymorphisms in the Croatian population are limited. We determined and analyzed frequencies for the most important CYP2C9, CYP2C19, CYP2D6, CYP3A4, and CYP3A5 genetic variants in the Croatian population. METHODS: 2637 subjects were included. Genotyping was performed by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using TaqMan® DME or TaqMan® SNP Genotyping Assays, and by PCR, and PCR-RFLP analysis. RESULTS: For CYP2C9, allele frequencies of *2 and *3 variant were 14...

Pregnancy is associated with numerous physiologic changes that influence absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion. Moreover, the magnitude of these effects changes as pregnancy matures. For most medications, there is limited information available about changes in drug disposition that can occur in pregnant patients, yet most women are prescribed one or more medications during pregnancy. In this investigation, PBPK modeling was used to assess the impact of pregnancy on the pharmacokinetic profiles of three medications (metformin, tacrolimus, oseltamivir) using the Simcyp® Simulator...

Extraembryonic endoderm (XEN) cells are stem cell lines derived from primitive endoderm cells of inner cell mass in blastocysts. These cells have self-renewal properties and differentiate into visceral endoderm (VE) and parietal endoderm (PE) of the yolk sac. Recently, it has been reported that XEN cells can contribute to fetal embryonic endoderm and their unique potency has been evaluated. Here, we have described the induction and characterization of new canine stem cell lines that closely resemble to XEN cells...
