Casopitant: in-vitro data and Simcyp® simulation to predict in-vivo metabolic interactions involving Cytochrome P450 3A4

[1-piperidinecarboxamide,4-(4-acetyl-1-piperazinyl)-N-((1R)-1-(3,5-bis(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)-ethyl)-2-(4-fluoro-2-methylphenyl)-N-methyl-(2R,4S), GW679769] has previously been shown to be a potent and selective antagonist of the human neurokinin-1 receptor, the primary receptor of substance P, both in vitro and in vivo, with good brain penetration properties. On the basis of this mode of action it was evaluated for the prevention of chemotherapy-induced and postoperative nausea and vomiting, and for […]
