1. The influence of citrate on intestinal calcium absorption (CaA) was studied in eight healthy males.. 2. On separate occasions, either a load containing 5 mmol of calcium chloride and 21 mmol of citrate in the form of sodium potassium citrate or a citrate-free vehicle load corrected for pH and cations was ingested. CaA was measured over 3 h with a 47Ca-85Sr double tracer method.. 3. After citrate administration, 10 min fractional CaA decreased significantly from 30 to 110 min post-load, and 3 h cumulative CaA dropped to 54.6 ± (sem)6.1% of the total dose as opposed to 76.3 ± 4.5% after vehicle administration (P , 0.002). Citrate administration raised serum and urinary citrate, but had little effect on blood acid-base status. After both loads, urinary specific activity of 47Ca significantly correlated with 3 h cumulative CaA, while citrate administration decreased urinary calcium excretion only slightly as compared with vehicle.. 4. The results suggest that, in man, higher doses of oral ...
Cholesterol absorption plays a key role in cholesterol homeostasis and understanding the lumenal events that play key roles in absorption remain poorly understood. The aims of the present study are fourfold: 1) To determine whether previously observed effects on cholesterol absorption during bile acid feeding are related to changes in pool size and intestinal transit or meal stimulated gall bladder emptying or plasma cholecystokinin levels. 2) To determine the effect of dietary sphingomyelin on cholesterol absorption, micellar solubilization and synthesis in normal adults and to assess the effects of intralumenal cholesterol solubilization, absorption and synthesis in adults with heterozygous mdr 3 deficiency (a defect leading to low biliary phospholipid content). 3) To determine the mechanism of action of a non-ionic detergent, Pluronic F-68, by evaluating its effect on cholesterol solubilization and distribution between micelles and vesicles, on cholesterol absorption and synthesis. 4) To ...

This work describes the preparation and characterization of different guar gum (GG) hydrogels at different sizes to be used for protein absorption. GG macrogels and micro/nanogels were synthesized through chemical crosslinkingviabulk polymerization and reverse micelle microemulsion techniques, respectively, and high yields, for example, 94 +/- 4% and 91 +/- 6% were obtained. GG micro/nanogels with spherical shape and smooth surface were separated in the range of 1-10 mu m and 300-900 nm by the filtration process. The blood compatibility assay revealed that GG micro/nanogels were blood compatible up to 2 mg/mL concentration with maximum 1.59 +/- 0.97% hemolysis ratio and minimum 84 +/- 2.6% blood clotting index. Furthermore, the cytotoxicity assay demonstrated that linear GG inhibited cell viability at >= 250 mu g/mL concentrations, whereas no significant difference was obtained up to 1000 mu g/mL concentration when compared to the control groups statistically (p > .05). It was further ...
The influence of active secretion processes on intestinal absorption of salbutamol in the rat. EUROPEAN JOURNAL OF PHARMACEUTICS AND BIOPHARMACEUTICS. 31-37. 2001 ...
The intestinal absorption of (14C)oleoyl moieties in triglyceride and phospholipid was investigated by means of (14C)phosphatidylcholine and (14C)triolein breath tests. In patients who had undergone ileal resection the absorption of both phosphatidylcholine and triglyceride was subnormal, as reflected by a lower production of 14CO2. In healthy subjects the production of expiratory 14CO2 after oral administration of (14C)phosphatidylcholine was slightly higher than after administration of (14C)triolein. This was also observed in the patient group, indicating that the absorption of both triglyceride and phospholipid was decreased to similar extents, although triglyceride absorption tended to be more affected after major ileal resection. In patients with lipid malabsorption the proportion of linoleic acid in serum phosphatidylcholine was subnormal, and the decrease was correlated to the decrease in lipid absorption. The concentration in serum of selenium, alpha-tocopherol, and carotene but not of ascorbic

TY - JOUR. T1 - Secretion and excretion of calcium by the human gastrointestinal tract. AU - Heaney, Robert P.. AU - Skillman, Thomas G.. PY - 1964/7/1. Y1 - 1964/7/1. N2 - Fecal excretion of calcium of endogenous origin has been measured in 52 studies in 33 adult human subjects, under full metabolic balance conditions. Endogenous fecal calcium averaged .130 ± .047 Gm. per day, was positively correlated with both fecal calcium and dietary calcium and was inversely correlated with fractional calcium absorption. The regression line relating endogenous fecal calcium with fractional absorption allowed estimates for total intestinal calcium secretion at both zero and 100 per cent absorption; from these estimates it was calculated that approximately 15 per cent of the total intestinal calcium secretion was nonabsorbable even under conditions when dietary calcium was completely absorbed (presumably because it enters the gut caudad of the absorption sites). Total intestinal calcium secretion, ...
With the global population rising, the need for sustainable and resource-efficiently produced proteins with nutritional and health promoting qualities has become urgent. Proteins are important macronutrients and are involved in most, if not all, biological processes in the human body. This review discusses these absorption mechanisms in the small intestine. To study intestinal transport and predict bioavailability, cell lines are widely applied as screening models and often concern Caco-2, HT-29, HT-29/MTX and T84 cells. Here, we provide an overview of the presence and activities of peptide- and amino acid transporters in these cell models. Further, inter-laboratory differences are discussed as well as the culture micro-environment, both of which may influence cell culture phenotype and performance. Finally, the value of new developments in the field, including culturing cells in 3-dimensional systems under shear stress (i.e., gut-on-chips), is highlighted. In particular, their suitability in screening
In isolated perfused small intestine, PGE2acutely increased glucose and galactose but not fructose absorption (figs 1 and 2). As glucose and galactose are absorbed via SGLT11 and fructose via GLUT5,2 this indicates that SGLT1 was involved in the stimulation of absorption by PGE2. These results are supported by the data obtained with isolated enterocytes, in which phlorizin, a specific inhibitor of SGLT1,20 markedly decreased the PGE2stimulated 3-O-[14C]methylglucose uptake (fig 3B). The different responses to PGE2 of glucose and galactose absorption on the one hand and fructose absorption on the other also ruled out stimulation via the paracellular route, which has been proposed previously.28 29 In addition, no stimulatory effect would be detectable in isolated enterocytes because, in cell suspensions, no paracellular pathways are present. This is in accordance with the previous finding of negligible paracellular intestinal glucose transport in the rat.30 Also PGE2 induced changes in ...
Heparin, a highly sulfated and acidic glycosaminoglycan, has been clinically used in parenteral formulations to prevent and/or treat thromboembolic disorders for more than 90 years. Actions of heparin are not limited to anticoagulation and antithrombosis. Rather heparin has several other important actions which include fat clearing, antitumor and anti-inflammatory effects. However, use of heparin for such applications has been limited by its route of administration. Historically, it has been believed that heparin is not absorbed following oral administration and therefore is only available for clinical use by parenteral administration. This belief has been challenged several times by our laboratory and other researchers showing heparin binding to endothelium following oral administration as well as prevention of thrombosis and lowering blood pressure, etc. However, the site of oral heparin absorption and the mechanism responsible for absorption have not been investigated. This in vitro study was ...

The effects of hydroxylated derivatives of vitamin D3 and aqueous extracts of Solanum malacoxylon on the intestinal absorption of calcium, phosphate, sodium, potassium and water have been studied in unstressed vitamin D-replete pigs each of which was surgically prepared beforehand with a Thirty-Vella loop of jejunum. The addition, for six 1 h periods of perfusion, of 1,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol (1,25-(OH)2D3) or 1α-hydroxycholecalciferol at similar concentrations (3·6-3·75 pmol/ml) to the solution used to perfuse the intestinal loop caused a rapid increase in the absorption of calcium but increased the absorption of phosphate only after a delay of at least 12 h. The absorption of both calcium and phosphate reached a maximum on the day following the addition of the vitamin D derivative to the perfusate. The addition of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-(OH)D3) at a concentration of 3·75 pmol/ml was without effect on absorption except for a small increase in the absorption of phosphate on the ...

1. The interaction of cyclosporin A (CyA) with p-glycoprotein during intestinal uptake was investigated by a combination of in vitro experiments with human Caco-2 cells and an intubation study in healthy volunteers. 2. CyA uptake into the cells was not saturable and exhibited only a low temperature sensitivity, suggesting passive diffusion. When the permeation of CyA across Caco-2 monolayers from the apical to the basolateral side was determined, overall transport had an apparently saturable component up to a concentration of 1 microM. At higher concentrations permeation increased over-proportionally. Calculation of the kinetic parameters of apical to basolateral permeation suggested a diffusional process with a KD of 0.5 microliter min-1 per filter, which was overlayed by an active system in basolateral to apical direction with a KM of 3.8 microM and a Jmax of 6.5 picomol min-1 per filter. 3. CyA permeation was significantly higher when the drug was given from the basolateral side as compared ...
In this study, we showed that the HIEC monolayer, which differentiated from ISCs, displayed mature morphologic features consisting of polarized columnar epithelia with dense microvilli, tight junctions, and desmosomes. The looseness of the tight junctions in the HIEC monolayer was similar to that in the human small intestine, whereas those of Caco-2 cells were not, and the HIEC monolayer also had a high Papp for paracellularly absorbed compounds. Furthermore, the presence of the functions of P-gp and BCRP, and abundant mRNA expression of CNT3 made HIECs a valuable tool for studies on the intestinal absorption of these substrates.. Paracellular absorption refers to permeation across cell monolayers through pores in the tight junction, and the oral absorption of hydrophilic molecules generally relies on the paracellular pathway. In this study, the permeability values of paracellularly absorbed compounds (FD-4, atenolol, and terbutaline) were higher in HIECs than in Caco-2 cells (Table 2). These ...

At latest update, relevant information on excretion into breast milk was not found. Because of pharmacokinetic data (wide distribution volume and moderately high molecular weight) excretion into breast milk in significant quantity seems to be unlikely. Based on a low oral bioavailability, concentration in the infants plasma should be nil or low, except in premature and newborn infants with a increased intestinal absorption capacity.

An interactive computer-simulation of experiments which may be performed on one of the classical in vitro techniques used to study intestinal absorption: the isolated, everted intestinal sac of the rat. The program simulates experiments designed to demonstrate the important characteristics of the transport of two important nutrients - hexoses and amino acids - in the small intestine. Introduction and Methods use a combination of text and high-resolution graphics to explain the everted sac preparation, the process of carrier-mediated transport of these nutrients and the methods used to measure it (using radiolabelled galactose, glycine and methionine and a scintillation counting technique). The Experiments section allows users to: 1. Measure the transport of these nutrients; 2. Demonstrate the Na+ dependence of the transport process; 3. Investigate the mutual interaction of the hexose and amino acid transport systems by performing a series of experiments (including a kinetic analysis and ...

As the researchers report in the journal Angewandte Chemie, drug absorption is increased through control of the enzymatic digestion of the lipid droplets. For example, the body only absorbs fat-soluble vitamins A and D in the presence of some fat. Also, the bioavailability of many poorly water-soluble drugs increases when they are taken with high-fat meals. There are many techniques for the lipid-based delivery of pharmaceuticals, including emulsions, micelles and packaging in liposomes. These methods prevent the active ingredients from precipitating out and improve transportation to the absorption sites in the gastrointestinal tract. However, in order for the drug to become active in the body, it must be released from its lipid shell. The enzymatic decomposition of the lipid coating plays an important role in this process, but it has proven to be difficult to control. In addition, it is difficult to calculate the extent to which such lipid packaging really increases the bioavailability of a ...

BACKGROUND: The nitric oxide (NO) precursor L-arginine has been shown to produce variable effects on intestinal absorptive function, including ion transport. AIMS: To determine whether there is an optimal concentration of L-arginine, promoting proabsorptive effects from oral rehydration solutions (ORS) with 90 or 60 mM sodium. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: In vivo perfusion of rat jejunum with determination of net water absorption, unidirectional fluid exchanges, sodium and calcium transport, and glucose absorption. RESULTS: L-Arginine (1 mM) added to the 90 mM sodium ORS increased intestinal absorption of both sodium and water. Higher concentrations of L-arginine (2 to 10 mM) lacked this stimulatory effect. At 20 mM, L-arginine decreased sodium absorption below baseline. With a 60 mM sodium ORS, 2 mM L-arginine had a maximal fluid and electrolyte proabsorptive effect. At 20 mM L-arginine, net water absorption was indistinguishable from that obtained in the absence of L-arginine, and lower than with 2 ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of 1,25-(OH)2D3 on jejunal absorption of magnesium in patients with chronic renal disease. AU - Schmulen, A. C.. AU - Lerman, M.. AU - Pak, C. Y C. PY - 1980/1/1. Y1 - 1980/1/1. N2 - These studies were performed to see if jejunal malabsorption of magnesium in patients with chronic renal disease was influenced by therapy with 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 [1,25-(OH)2D3; 2 μg/day by mouth for 7 days]. This treatment restored normal serum concentrations of the vitamin D metabolite from 0.9 ± 0.2 to 4.2 ± 0.6 ng/dl. Jejunal absorption of magnesium, measured by a triple-lumen constant-perfusion technique, was enhanced in each of the seven patients by this therapy. The mean value rose from 0.04 ± 0.02 to 0.13 ± 0.02 mmol.30 cm-1.h-1. This last value is similar to the magnesium absorption rate in untreated normal subjects. These results demonstrate that magnesium absorption in the human jejunum is dependent on vitamin D, and they show that 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 therapy in ...

This study analysed the moisture absorption kinetics of FruitPad embedded with different concentrations of fructose with further application of such pads in packaging of fresh strawberries. The FruitPad was exposed to different storage conditions (temperature and RH) and moisture absorption kinetics was gravimetrically determined over 5 days of storage. FruitPad with 30% fructose showed highest amount of moisture absorption (0.94 g of water/g of pad) at 20 °C and 100% RH. The Weibull model combined with the Flory-Huggins model adequately described changes in moisture content of the FruitPad with respect to storage time and humidity (R2 = 93-96%). The FruitPad containing fructose minimized in-package condensation compared to the pad without fructose. Weight loss of packaged strawberry was less than 0.9% which was much below the acceptable limit of 6% for strawberry ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Distribution of calcium absorption in middle-aged women. AU - Heaney, R. P.. AU - Recker, R. R.. PY - 1986/1/1. Y1 - 1986/1/1. N2 - Distribution of true fractional absorption of calcium in estrogen-deprived, nonosteoporotic, middle-aged women was examined in 273 person-studies, using a double-tracer method. Fractional absorption averaged 0.266 (± 0.096). Calcium intake averaged 0.802 g/day (± 0.419) and urine calcium, 0.144 g/day (± 0.062). Fractional absorption was inversely correlated with intake. Using parameters of the regression equation for the two variables, each absorption value was adjusted to the mean intake of the group so that absorption could be evaluated apart from the effect of intake. The distribution of such diet-adjusted values revealed that 55% of these estrogen-deprived women had insufficient absorption to maintain calcium balance at an intake equal to the 1980 RDA. Nearly one-fourth would still be in negative balance at an intake of 1.5 g/day. Since urine ...
Cholesterol is a vital component of the human body. It stabilizes cell membranes and is the precursor of bile acids, vitamin D and steroid hormones. However, cholesterol accumulation in the bloodstream (hypercholesterolemia) can cause atherosclerotic plaques within artery walls, leading to heart attacks and strokes. The efficiency of cholesterol absorption in the small intestine is of great interest because human and animal studies have linked cholesterol absorption with plasma concentration of total and low density lipoprotein cholesterol. Cholesterol absorption is highly regulated and influenced by particular compounds in the food supply. Therefore, it is desirable to learn more about natural food components that inhibit cholesterol absorption so that food ingredients and dietary supplements can be developed for consumers who wish to manage their plasma cholesterol levels by non-pharmacological means. Food components thus far identified as inhibitors of cholesterol absorption include phytosterols,

Several published studies have shown that the three options are effective in suppressing PTH. However, clinical studies indicate that non-selective VDRAs can lead to dose-limited hyperphosphataemia and hypercalcaemia. The sVDRAs have less effect on intestinal calcium absorption and calcium and phosphorus mobilization in bone, leading to fewer episodes of hypercalcaemia and hyperphosphatemia.8 Calcimimetics are also very effective, although they are often associated with hypocalcaemia.9. One of the current problems in defining SHPT is the diversity of procedures for measuring PTH. Because of this, different guidelines refer to different normal ranges for PTH in dialysis patients. Nevertheless, as recognized by the KDIGO guidelines, clinical judgment in SHPT should be based not only on the absolute PTH level within the normal range, but also on the progressive tendency for an increase in levels. The rational histological basis for considering this tendency is progressive transformation of ...
III. MUCOSAL INTEGRITY Studies of gastrointestinal physiology reveal an intricate interaction between central and peripheral nerves, hormones, and peptides inside and outside the intestinal cell. This is exemplified by the different phases of vagal stimulation, made known to the rest of the world by Pavlovs classic studies in dogs in the 19th century. To use a slight understatement: Our knowledge has expanded since the work of Pavlov. We know now that physiological intestinal homeostasis is mediated through several mechanisms, whereby the way in which cellular mucosal defense is achieved is of utmost importance for maintaining mucosal integrity and thus also very relevant to drug absorption. 2. 3.

Aims. Magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) sausage tube waves are excited in magnetic flux tubes by p-mode forcing. These tube waves carry energy away from the p-mode cavity which results in a source of absorption. We wish to see the effect of an ensemble of randomly distributed thin magnetic flux tubes on the absorption of p-modes for the model plage region and also study the effect of the spacial weighting function on the theoretically calculated absorption coefficients. Methods. We calculate the absorption coefficients of p modes for a model plage, assumed to consist of an ensemble of many thin magnetic flux tubes with randomly distributed plasma properties. Each magnetic flux tube in the ensemble is modelled as axisymmetric, non-interacting, vertically oriented and untwisted. Results. We find that the magnitude and the form of the absorption coefficient is sensitive to the plasma-beta of the tubes which is consistent with previous work. Both the random distribution used to model the ensemble of flux ...

To support rapid growth and a high metabolic rate, infants require enormous amounts of nutrients. The small intestine must have the complete array of transporters that absorb the nutrients released from digested food. Failure of intestinal transporters to function properly often presents symptoms as …
Higher level of apparent absorption and retention of zinc in lambs receiving the organic form of zinc (Zn-glycine) was showed. Korniewicz et al. [7] also stated that zinc apparent absorption and retention of zinc were higher when applying amino-acid zinc chelate in lamb feeding than when zinc oxide was used. The research results related to apparent absorption of zinc were higher than the values obtained by Kinal et al. [5] after supplying sheep with zinc bioplexes. S upczy ska [13] in experiment conducted on lambs indicated that animals receiving amino acid chelates (Zn-lysine, Zn-metionine and Zn-glycine) had higher apparent absorption and retention of zinc then animals receiving zinc oxide and apparent absorption and retention of zinc by lambs received amino acid chelates of Zn were vary and was the higher for Zn-Lysine. On the other hand Spears [15] in his research on lambs stated that the apparent absorption of zinc from Zn-methionine and from the oxide was comparable and Zn retention from ...
Biosketch. Chris Porters research is focused in the area of drug absorption and drug delivery. His major interests are in understanding, quantifying and predicting the mechanisms of absorption of drug molecules and drug delivery systems after oral and parenteral delivery. His group has contributed substantially to the drug delivery literature (,220 peer reviewed papers and book chapters; ,16,000 citations; h-index 70, Google Scholar). Porters group has published widely on the mechanisms of absorption and disposition of small molecular weight drugs and high molecular weight proteins and nanoparticulate carriers such as nanoparticles and dendrimers. His group has a specific interest in using endogenous lipid transport pathways to promote the delivery of poorly water soluble drugs. This includes the use of lipids to enhance oral drug absorption, the use of lipid-mimetic prodrugs to target the lymphatic system and the potential role of intracellular lipid transport systems to promote drug ...

In some previous papers it has been shown by the author and others that saturated compounds of most substances in the vapour state show continuous absorption. A typical example is SO3-vapour, which was recently studied by the author and which enabled him to make an accurate estimation of the heat of dissociation of oxygen. In the present work, the absorption spectrum of N2O was investigated with a view to determining the heat of dissociation of nitrogen. Leifson was the first to investigate the absorption spectrum of N2O gas and found that the gas shows no selective absorption in the Schumann region. He states that the absorption is in the form of two continuous bands, the first extending from λ 2000 to λ 1680 and the second from λ 1550 beyond the range of observation. Recently Wulf and Melvin showed that when N2O is illuminated with light of wave-length λ 2300, it is decomposed photochemically into NO and N; they also noticed that N2O possesses no band absorption. ...

Absorption of electrolytes is dependent on solution pH. At pH ≤2, amphoteric resins play a role as strong base resins; the absorption of electrolytes takes place according to the anion exchange mechanism, At pH2~7, the molecular sorption by breaking of innersalt bonds increases gradually. At pH≥7,the principal absorption is the molecular sorption by breaking innersalt bonds as well as ion exchange.At the same time, the ion selectivity obviously increases, which may be useful in the softening of concentrated NaCl solution.
The dynamic interactions of metabolism and secretion, and the role of transporters on drug absorption have been under considerable debate. The thorough understanding of intestinal processes would be learnt through modeling of intestinal data only in the absence of the contribution from the liver. Recent studies on the interactions between the P450s and Pgp in vitro have led to the conclusion that intestinal metabolism is enhanced by the secretory action of P-glycoprotein due to an increase in the mean residence time (MRT) of drug in the intestine (Benet and Cummins, 2001; Cummins et al., 2001; Johnson et al., 2001). Theoretical examinations on Caco-2 cells and intestinal vascular perfusion systems support the notion that the mean residence time was increased, but metabolism under linear conditions was in fact decreased in the presence of secretion, even though the mean residence time has increased; under nonlinear metabolism, instances exist whereby the rate of metabolite accrual may increase, ...
M1.BC.74) A 12-year-old boy presents to the pediatrician for the dermatological changes seen in Figure A that began two weeks ago after he begun his first day of football practice. The skin eruptions appeared to be localized solely to sun exposed areas. The boy notes that he has also had diarrhea, headaches, and confusion appearing at the same time. On examination, the pediatrician notes ataxia and tremors in the boy. A urinalysis revealed elevated levels of tyrosine, leucine, valine, isoleucine, tryptophan, glycine, alanine, and phenylalanine. Which of the following vitamin deficiencies would produce a similar clinical presentation? ...
Fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K need fat in order to be absorbed by our body. Coconut oil and nutrient absorption work particularly well together.
To verify the acceptability of the roofing product characteristics and process capability, some daily QC test results have also been analyzed. Water absorption (24 hours) average was 1.12% while the maximum admissible is 3%; values were between 0.50 and 2.17%. All data (approximately 5500) have been summarized graphically. None of the samples showed any signs of cracking, spalling, or other forms of deterioration. However, the frequency and amplitude are not uniform, the curve having a random aspect, which makes difficult to do estimations or find an empirical formula.

Ezetimibe interferes with the gastrointestinal absorption not only of cholesterol, but also of other molecular entities that could conceivably affect the growth of cancer cells. The fact that the combined data from all three trials showed an increase in cancer mortality with ezetimibe should not be assumed to be a chance finding until further data are in. It is appropriate that SHARP and IMPROVE-IT continue. Careful follow-up of the patients in these trials will be essential, and other existing data sets on ezetimibe-treated patients should be analyzed for cancer end points. The Food and Drug Administration has already announced that during the next few months it will conduct its own analysis of the potential cancer hazard of ezetimibe ...
were fed the unlabelled diet for 20 d and then the labelled diet for 10 d while wearing a neck collar to avoid caecotrophy (group COLL), in order to discriminate it from direct intestinal absorption. At day 30 animals were slaughtered and caecal bacteria and liver samples taken. The 15N enrichment in amino acids of caecal bacteria and liver were determined by GC-combustion/isotope ratio MS. Lysine showed a higher enrichment in caecal microflora (0·925 atom% excess, APE) than liver (0·215 APE) in group ISOT animals, confirming the double origin of body lysine: microbial and dietary. The COLL group showed a much lower enrichment in tissue lysine (0·007 (SE 0·0029) APE for liver). Any enrichment in the latter animals was due to direct absorption of microbial lysine along the digestive tract, since recycling of microbial protein (caecotrophy) was avoided. In such conditions liver enrichment was low, indicating a small direct intestinal absorption. From the ratio of [15N]lysine enrichment between ...

Assessment of the toxicokinetic behavior No studies are available investigating the toxicokinetic properties of the test substance. The test substance (molecular weight of 278.4 g/mol) is a clear, yellow to brown viscous liquid (BASF, 2012) with a water solubility of 0.04 g/L (Ciba-Geigy, 1985) and a vapor pressure of 0.0025 Pa at 25°C (Ciba-Geigy, 1985). The log Pow was calculated to be 5.8 for the neutral, undissoziated form (EPI Suite, BASF, 2012), and is further characterized by pH dependency, ranging from 4.6 at pH 4 to 1.7 at pH 9 (SciFinder, 2011). Absorption Absorption via the gastrointestinal tract: Absorption through the gastrointestinal tract is favored for molecules with a molecular weight below 500 g/mol (ECHA GD 7c, 2008), thus the test articles molecular weight is favorable for absorption after oral exposure. Further criteria in favor of absorption are hydrophilicity and a moderate log POW value (between -1 and 4). The test article is hydrophobic and therefore not very soluble ...
