Pharmacokinetics of indoramin and its 6-hydroxylated metabolite after repeated oral dosing

The pharmacokinetics of indoramin and its active 6-hydroxylated metabolite have been studied in healthy male volunteers after repeated oral dosing with 37.5 mg twice daily for 2 weeks. Plasma concentrations of indoramin accumulated, on average, three to four-fold above those anticipated on the basis of the kinetics after the first dose, though steady state was achieved by the end of the first week and no further increase was observed after 2 weeks. The degree of accumulation was consistent between subjects, with a highly significant (p less than 0.001) correlation between the concentration 2 h after a single dose and the average steady-state concentration. Possible explanations for the accumulation of indoramin are discussed. Plasma concentrations of 6-hydroxyindoramin, in contrast, did not accumulate on multiple dosing. At steady state, concentrations of the metabolite, as represented by the AUC0-8h, were approximately 30-40 per cent of those of the unchanged drug. Since the two compounds are approximately equipotent the metabolite may accounts for 25 per cent of the hypotensive activity of indoramin during a typical clinical regime of 37.5 mg twice daily.

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.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
