Sample text

In relating variations in the pharmacological and toxic actions of drugs to differences in drug metabolism, it is important to determine whether the actions are caused by the parent drug or by its metabolites. When none of the metabolites is active, only variations in the rate of metabolism and elimination need be considered. For example, the action of pentobarbitone depends on its rate of metabolism and not on whether it is hydroxylated in the penultimate or ultimate position of the side chain.

I shall discuss some of the factors that affect the rate of metabolism of drugs. Among these factors are age, sex and the dietary and physiological states of the animals. Prior administration of various substances to animals or man may also alter drug metabolism by increasing or decreasing the activities of enzymes which metabolize drugs. The interplay of these various factors in controlling the concentration of drugs in plasma, and hence their therapeutic effects, will be described. MECHANISMS OP DRUG MBTABOLISM A number of drugs have been designed to combine with specific receptors in the body.
