Multicompartment Modeling

11.3 PHARMCOKINETICS: MAMMILLARY MODELS

For many drugs the equilibrium between drug concentrations in different tissues is not achieved rapidly. Thus, one of the assumptions of the one-compartment open model sometimes becomes invalid. A more complex mammillary open model is often necessary to describe mathematically the plasma concentration data (for example) seen after the administration of some drugs. The simplest mammillary open model is a two-compartment open model: for example:

Compartment One (central compartment) can be sampled through the blood (or plasma, or serum). It may consist of organs or tissues which, being highly perfused with blood, are in rapid equilibrium distribution with the blood.

Compartnent Two (peripheral compartment) cannot normally be sampled. It may consist or organs or tissues which, being poorly perfused with blood, are in slow equilibrium distribution with the blood.

The Body is the sum of both compartments.

Multicompartment Modeling

1. Biexponential Properties of Two-Compartment Open Model

Following an intravenous bolus injection, the plasma concentration against time profile has two phases:

a. Initial phase - ( α - phase)

b. Terminal phase - ( β - phase)

On semilogarithmic paper the terminal phase is linear, indicating that initial distribution has been completed and that equilibrium has been attained. The terminal half-life ( t 1 ⁄ 2 ) can be measured from the terminal phase.

2. Intravenous Bolus Administration: Plasma Concentration Data For a one-compartment open model,

Cp = ( Cp )o e

– kt

(EQ 10-26)

i.e., the concentration of drug in the plasma declines exponentially with time

2.3 Obtaining Pharmacokinetic Parameters by “Feathering” By convention, α > β a. Plot C p against t on semilogarithmic paper

b. Find t 1 ⁄ 2 from the linear terminal phase: see “Intravenous Administration”, section A1.4a

c. Calculate the terminal hybrid rate constant ( β ) ; in reality it contains both distributive ( k 12 and k 21 ) and elimination ( k 10 ) factors.

0.693 β = -----------t1 ⁄ 2

d. Draw a straight line through the linear terminal elimination phase and extralpolate this line to t = 0. The intercept is equal to B1 .

e. Read estrapolated plasma concentrations ( C p ) from the plot at times equal to those given for values of C p which are prior to the terminal phase.

f. At each of these times calculate:

( C p )diff = C p – C p

g. Plot ( C p )diff against t (see Eq.8) on semilogarithmic paper. The is a “feathered” line and should decline linearly.

h. Find the half-life of the plot. It wil refer to the initial phase. Calculate,

0.693 α = -----------------------half – life

i. Measure the intercept of the “feathered” line; it will equal to A 1 (Note that usually A1 = B1 , even theoetically).

When t is large, e

– αt

. Hence, Eq. 2 becomes

Cp = B1 e

(EQ 10-31)

i.e., when t is large, the concentration of the drug in the plasma declines exponentilly with time.

The extrapolated plasma concentrations are Cp = B1 e

(EQ 10-32)

Substituting from Eqs. 2 and 7a into Eq. 5,

( C p ) diff = A 1 e

(EQ 10-33)

i.e., the difference between observed and extrapolated drug concentrations in the plasma declines exponentially with time. Note (for reference only)

It is usually not informative to determine the “micro”rate constant; but see one use under the note on dosage regimens.

αB 1 + βA1 k 21 = ------------------------A 1 + B1

k 10 = αβ ⁄ k 21

k 12 = α + β – k 10 – k 21

2.4 Clearance and Volume

If model-independant equations can be used to define these terms, this is preferred.

a. Systemic Clearance (Cl) may be calculated by,

Basic Pharmacokinetics

REV. 99.4.25
http://kiwi.creighton.edu/pkinbook/

11-10

Multicompartment Modeling

D Cl = ---------------------∞ ( AUC )o

(EQ 10-34)

b. The volume terms are complex than in a one-compartment open model. There are two terms of interest:

The apparent volume of distribution in compartment one ( V1 ) This is calculated using Eq. 6.

The apparent volume of distribution at pseudo-distribution equilibrium ( V β )

This volume may be defined only in relation to the terminal phase ( β phase), when initial distribution has been completed. D V β = -------------------------∞ β ( AUC )o

As Vβ requires calculation of the total area under the plasma concentration against time curve it is sometimes known as Varea .

c. Comparing Eqs. 9 and 10,

Cl = βV β

(EQ 10-35)

Basic Pharmacokinetics

REV. 99.4.25
http://kiwi.creighton.edu/pkinbook/

11-11

Multicompartment Modeling

It may also be shown that,

Cl = k 10V 1

(EQ 10-36)

This follows as systemic clearance is always given by the elimination rate constant out of the body multiplied by the apparent volume of distribution in the compartment from which drug leaves the body. Comparing Eqs. 11 and 12,

k 10 V β = ------ V1 β

(EQ 10-37)

Note that k 10 (the elimination rate constant) is not the same as β (the terminal hybrid rate constant).

2.5 Bioavailability

Find ( AUC )0 using trapezoidal rule and, if necessary, the calculation for the terminal area.

∞ t Cp ( AUC )o = ( AUC )o + ----β

(EQ 10-38)

This is a model-independent equation.

2.6 Dosage Regimens

The maintenance dose (D) is given by the same model-independent equation as before,

D = ( C p ) ss Cl • τ

Where ( C p )ss has its same previous definition.

The loading dose ( D L ) achieves a steady-state condition quite rapidly, but only after initial distribution has been completed. It is given by the previous equation.

D D L = --------------------------– 0.693N 1–e

(EQ 10-39)

As may be expected, equations relating ( C max )ss and ( C min ) ss to ( C p )ss are as before,

Note (reference only)

All dosage regimen equations strictly apply only when,

For digoxin Eq. 17 has a value of 0.947 For warfarin Eq. 17 has a value of 0.990 For cephalexin Eq. 17 has a value of 0.846

This is why, despite the fact that an open two-compartment model is better description of the pharmacokinetic of these drugs, a simple open-compartment model may often be assumed for dosage regimen purposes.

3. Intravenous Bolus Administration: Compartment Two

It is not normally possible to measure drug concentrations in compartment two. However, the mass of drug can be predicted based on the ddrug concentrations observed in compartment one.

2.6 Dosage Regimens

)

(EQ 10-40)

k 12D Where B2 = ----------------(α – β)

11-14

Multicompartment Modeling

Note that the equations forms bears a similarity to that seen for plasma concentrations after oral administration inot a one compartment open model.

When t is large, e

– αt

<e

– βt

. Hence, Eq. 18 becomes,

X2= B2 e

– βt

(EQ 10-41)

This is comparted to the mass modification of Eq. 7, X1= V1B1 e
– βt
(EQ 10-42)

Thus, when t is large the masses of drug in each compartment decline exponentially, and in parallel, with time. This indicates that initial distribution has been completed and equilibrium attained. If the value of X 2 reflects drug concentrations at the active site, the time of maximum concentration (and maximum pharmacological effect) is: ln ( α ⁄ β ) t max = --------------------α–β 4. Others Dosage Forms The equations become complex and it is therefore difficult to obtain useful parameter values without th eaid of a computer. Fortunately, because the complexity of the equations is greater than the experimental accuracy of the assays warrants, drugs that strictly require a mammillary model can be described adequately by an open one compartment for the purposes of calculating dosage regimens. 4.1 Intravenous Infusion The plasma concentrations at first rise faster than an open one compartment model profile would suggest. Later, the rise is slower. The decline, following the cessation of infusion, is biexponential. 4.2 Oral Administration

DRUG DISPOSITION: VOLUME TERMS

As apparent volumes of distribution are proportionality constants, and not physiological volumes, more than one term is of value.

1. Apparent Volume of Sampled Compartment ( V1 )

This relates the concentration of drug in the sampled compartment with the mass of drug present in that compartment.

It may be measured after an intravenous bolus dose: D V 1 = ------------( Cp )o
or
(EQ 10-44)

D V1 = --------------------------∞ K ( AUC )o

2. Apparent Volume at Pseudo-Distribution Equilibrium ( Vβ )

This volume term (sometimes known as the apparent volume of distribution of the drug in the body) requires the assumption that the drug is evenly distributed throughout the body. The assumption is not true in practice. Thus Vβ can only be defined in relation to the terminal phase ( β -phase) when equilibrium has been attained; the equation is analogous to Eq. 2.

D Vβ = -------------------------∞ β ( AUC )o

(EQ 10-47)

3. Relationships Between Apparent Volumes By secondary alebraic definition, a clearance (Cl) is always given by the first-order rate constant for removal of drug from the body multiplied by the apparent volume of distribution on the drug in the compartment from which the drug leaves the body: Cl r = k u V 1 Cl m = k m V1 Cl s = KV 1

For many drugs, suco as aminoglycosides, thc distributdoo phast is vcry shott (e.g., 1920 mtn). If serum consentradons are measured after this phase is compited, toe ceotral compartmcot can be ignorcd and a one-compartrKnt model adequatcly repttsents the serum coocentratioos observed. However, for drugs such as vancomycin, thc-distribution phase lasts 1-2 hr after an intravenous dosc. If plasma concentrations of vancomycin are determined within the first hour after a dose is given, thc nonlincar (multiexponential) decline of vancomycin concentrations must bc considered.

Poin~ 11: At midway through tbe distributioo process, the drug density in thc central compartment is falling r pidly, dulioly owing to rapid drug distributioo out of the centd ccrnpartment into the peripheral compartment. The density of drug io the peripheral compartment has not yet mched tht in the central compartmcnt.

Drug distribution in both directioos contioucs to talze place, but the ratio of drug quantitics in toe centel and peripheral compartments remains constant. At this point, the major determinant of drug disappearance from thc central compartmcnt becomes the elimination process; previously, drug disappearance W&S determined mainly by distribution.

The methot of residuals may be used for calculating phamiacoMinctic parameters of thc two-compartmcnt model. FuSst, b cl:-extrapolate the terminal straight-line portion of tbe curve (Flgure 24B). If w, s. y, and 2 are actual, detennined concentration time points, let w’, ~’, y’, and 2’ xpresent points on the new (extopolated) line at the same times that tbe aaual points were obscrved. These newly generated points xpresent the cffect of clim~ ination alone, as if distribution had been instantaneous. Subtnction of the extrapolated points from the corresponding actual points (w—w’, X—~’, etc.) yields a new set of pbsma concenti-ation points for each time point. If we plot tbese new points with the appmpriate times, we generate a new line, the “residual” line (hgure 24C).

The slope of tbe xsidual line is—st, and alpha (a) is the distribution rate constant for the two-compartment system. The intrcept of the residual line is A. Therefore, witb the coocept of residuals, we attempt to separate the two pwocsscs of diseribution and climin~ jon.

Multicompartment Modeling

This calculation is not subject to thc ovcrsimplification of V,S,,p, but it is affected by changes in clearance. The V,,,, relates the amount of drug in the body to the concentration of drug in plasrna in the post-absorpion and postwdisttibuiion phase.

A ffnal volume tenn is the volume of disttibution at steady state (V,,). Although it is not affected by changes in drug eliminadoo or ckarance, it is more difficult to calculate. One way to estimate Vs, is to use the two compartment microconstants:

V,—Ve + ~’2vf

or it may be estimated by more complicated methods using AUC.

Since-different methods can be used to calculate the various volumes of distribution of a two-compartment model, you should always specify the metbod used. When reading a pharrnacolcinetic study, pay particular attenion to the method for calculating thc volume of distribution.

Welling and Creig (JPS 67, 1057-9,1978) reported an increase in the half life from 2.0 to 2.3 hours while also reporting an increase in clearance from 275 to 485 ml/min and an increase in Vdss from 57 to 100 litres when comparing normals to uremic patients. (Uremic patients suffer from inveased concentration of urea as a result of severe renal failure.) A physician has just called you and asked you to explain how he could have seen an increase of 15% in the half life and a 75% increase in clearance at the same time and what is the impact of this on antibiotic therapy for his uremic patient.

Patients suffering chronic renal failure often require hemodialysis. Drugs may be administered by injection into the venous side of the hemodialyzer machine.

Such a situation was described by L*tourneau-Saheb et al (Int. J. Clin. PKinmacol., 15, 116-120 (1977)) for six patients who receivet an intravenous dose 7 gentamicin (90 mg). The mean serum concentrations of gentamicin (Cs) showed a biexponential decline with time (t).

98X of the systemic clearance of gentamicin is composed of renal clearance-of unchanged drug, so that renal failure woult severely alter gentamRcin systemic clearance. In this case, the use of the hemodialyzer gave a systemic clearance close to the 41.0 ml/min seen in patients with normal renal function.

(c) Under the conditions of hemodialysis, calculate the dose (D) of gentamicin which would be administered every 8 hr (t) in order to maintain an Waverage” steady-state serum concentration of 4 ug/ml. What would be (Cmax)ss and (Cmin)ss?

(d) Without the hemodialyzer two male patients each exhibited a creatinine clearance (Clcr) of S ml/min; the noW l value is 117 + 20 ml/min. Assuming that the decreased ClCr is due to a decrease in glomerular filtration rate, what would have been the renal clearance (Clr) of gentamicin in these two patients had they remalned without the hemodialyzer? What dose would then need to be administered every 8 hr to maintajn (~s) at 4 ug/ml? Compare your answer with the Physician’s Desk Reference (5677).

AUC = (487.6 / 1.05) + (116.8 / 0.0325) = 464.4 + 3594.8 = 4058.2

Since the beta phase contributes more than 80% of the total AUC, the model can be collapsed to a one compartment model.

3594.8 / 4058.2 = 0.886 = 89%

That will get the Cpss max total concentration back to it was before he was sick. b) His new clearance was marginally changed because the drug is cleared by the liver. I’d leave it alone. c) I think the change from TID to BID is a bit much. How about lowering it to 30 mg instead of 40 mg TID. *d) We need to increase the dose, not lower it.

Although primidone has anticonmlsant activity of its own, much of the activity comes from the conversion to one of its metabolites, phenobarbital. For the purposes of this exam, an insignificant error will be introduced bytheuse of intermittent IV caSculations instead of oralformultipledose.

The pharmacokinetic parameters of felodipine in patients with impaired liver function were investigated in this study. Felodipine blocks calcium channels resulting in a decrease in peripheral vascular resistance which subsequently leads to a decrease in blood pressure. Felodipine also works as a diuretic. The bioavailability of felodipine is 15%. It is highly (99.64%) protein bound and is eliminated almost exclusively by liver metabolism. The following data is for a patient with liver cirrhosis:
