Pharmacokinetic Evaluation of Moxifloxacin Administered Intravenously and Orally in Healthy Volunteers Who Have Had a Gastric Bypass

2014-08-27 03:13:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Roux-and-Y gastric bypass is one of the most common forms of bariatric surgery; due to a reduction in size of the stomach and intestine, the available surface area for the absorption of oral drugs is strongly decreased. This may lead to a reduced bioavailability resulting in a reduced efficacy of the drug. However, in literature there is no information available about the impact of bariatric surgery on the pharmacokinetics of moxifloxacin. This protocol evaluates the moxifloxacin plasma levels, the variability between subjects and the absolute bioavailability, after oral administration of 400 mg moxifloxacin in healthy volunteers who have had a gastric bypass at least 6 months ago and who now have a stable body weight.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Coronary artery bypass surgery on a beating HEART without a CARDIOPULMONARY BYPASS (diverting the flow of blood from the heart and lungs through an oxygenator).

Surgical procedure in which the STOMACH is transected high on the body. The resulting small proximal gastric pouch is joined to any parts of the SMALL INTESTINE by an end-to-side SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS, depending on the amounts of intestinal surface being bypasses. This procedure is used frequently in the treatment of MORBID OBESITY by limiting the size of functional STOMACH, food intake, and food absorption.

Abnormal distention of the STOMACH due to accumulation of gastric contents that may reach 10 to 15 liters. Gastric dilatation may be the result of GASTRIC OUTLET OBSTRUCTION; ILEUS; GASTROPARESIS; or denervation.

Vagal denervation of that part of the STOMACH lined with acid-secreting mucosa (GASTRIC MUCOSA) containing the GASTRIC PARIETAL CELLS. Since the procedure leaves the vagal branches to the antrum and PYLORUS intact, it circumvents gastric drainage required with truncal vagotomy techniques.

A procedure consisting of the SURGICAL ANASTOMOSIS of the proximal part of the JEJUNUM to the distal portion of the ILEUM, so as to bypass the nutrient-absorptive segment of the SMALL INTESTINE. Due to the severe malnutrition and life-threatening metabolic complications, this method is no longer used to treat MORBID OBESITY.
