Kinetic modelling and residue depletion of drugs in eggs

British Poultry Science
P Hekman, G J Schefferlie


1. A physiologically-based pharmacokinetic model was developed for the purpose of describing the relationship between plasma concentration of drugs and their deposition into eggs. 2. By incorporating the physiology of egg formation into the model, the transfer of drugs into the egg albumen and yolk could be described using rate constants. 3. The model was used to describe concentrations in albumen and yolk of sulphanilamide, sulphaquinoxaline and pyrimethamine as a function of time using datasets from the literature. 4. The model could be used as a tool to obtain an insight into those properties of a drug which are responsible for the amount of residue in eggs, and could help in the design of critical studies for determining withdrawal periods for eggs.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
