Altered bioavailability of drugs will potentially affect both drug efficacy as well as safety. In patients subjected to bariatric surgery due to morbid obesity the gastro intestinal tract is considerably reconstructed and a change in drug bioavailability is very likely. Getting further knowledge on important mechanisms responsible for altered bioavailability would help in predicting clinically relevant consequences on different drugs.
In the present study we aim to investigate the effect of bariatric surgery on atorvastatin bioavailability. Atorvastatin is subjected to both extensive metabolism and drug transport and will potentially be a good predictor for mechanisms relevant for other drugs as well.
In addition will the expression of different enzymes and transporters be measured in the gastrointestinal tract and in the liver to elucidate on mechanism behind the eventual effects.
The primary objective of the study is to compare the effect of gastric bypass and BPD+DS operations on atorvastatin bioavailability.
Secondary objectives are to determine the relative change in atorvastatin bioavailability following gastric bypass as well as BPD+DS operations. In addition will the individual CYP3A4, CYP3A5 and P-gp activity in the different organs from where biopsies can be obtained be descriptively compared with atorvastatin pharmacokinetic variables.

The number of adolescent bariatric surgeries (ABS) performed from 2003 to 2009 has been stable despite reports of an increase in adolescent morbid obesity.
Bariatric surgery has been established as the most effective long-term treatment for morbid obesity and obesity-related comorbidities. Despite its success, there is a paucity of data on the outcomes o...
More than one third of Americans are obese. Obesity is a risk factor for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and esophageal adenocarcinoma (EA). The only durable treatment for morbid obesity and it...
Obesity remains a significant problem in the United States. Bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for obesity, but it is cost-prohibitive on both a national and individual scale. Access is...
Patients with morbid obesity are at a higher risk of developing gallstones after bariatric surgery. Studies on the incidence of symptomatic gallstones necessitating cholecystectomy after laparoscopic ...
Surgical procedures aimed at producing major WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with MORBID OBESITY.
The condition of weighing two, three, or more times the ideal weight, so called because it is associated with many serious and life-threatening disorders. In the BODY MASS INDEX, morbid obesity is defined as having a BMI greater than 40.0 kg/m2.
Activities related to WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY. Treatment methods include DIET; EXERCISE; BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION; medications; and BARIATRIC SURGERY.
Surgical procedures involving the STOMACH and sometimes the lower ESOPHAGUS to correct anatomical defects, or to treat MORBID OBESITY by reducing the size of the stomach. There are several subtypes of bariatric gastroplasty, such as vertical banded gastroplasty, silicone ring vertical gastroplasty, and horizontal banded gastroplasty.
The discipline concerned with WEIGHT REDUCTION in patients with OBESITY.
