Effects of Liver Disease on Pharmacokinetics

Pharmacokinetics is a term that describes the time course and fate of a drug in the body. The term encompasses drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and elimination and is often referred to as drug disposition. Elimination is the removal of the drug from the body through different routes, including in urine, feces, and bile. Critically ill patients pose several challenges to health care providers that are related to medication pharmacokinetics. Organ dysfunction affects the safety and effectiveness of medications because many Sign In or Create an Account.

Effect of Liver Disease on Pharmacokinetics

Liver and kidney function disturbances influence the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic behaviour of drugs. Because of the differences in metabolism and excretion between the various muscle relaxants, liver and kidney disturbances do influence their pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics to a different extent. A description of the changes is given for the most frequently used non-depolarizing muscle relaxants. It is related to the practical clinical implications of the difference in the pharmacokinetics.

The pharmacokinetics of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stim ulating factor (rhG-CSF) was studied in rats experiencing renal and hepatic failure.

Compare the advantages and disadvantages of the use of drugs or endogenous substances as markers for the measurement of renal function.

Inhibition and induction of drug-metabolizing enzymes are the most frequent and dangerous drug-drug interactions. They are an important cause of serious adverse events that have often resulted in early termination of drug development or withdrawal of drugs from the market. Management of such interactions by dose adjustment in clinical practice is extremely difficult because of the wide interindividual variability in their magnitude.

    Renal failure may influence hepatic drug metabolism either by inducing or inhibiting hepatic enzymes, or by its effects on other variables such as protein binding, hepatic blood flow and accumulation of metabolites. This review examines all of these effects.
