Example text

At the contraluminal membrane there is evidence for one common transport system. At the luminal membrane, the transport of organic cations occurs by an electroneural Hf/organic cation system. E Contraluminal Transporters Fig. 7. Location of transporters for organic anions and cations in the renal proximal tubule (from Ullrich (1994)). Note: PAH is the organic anion p-aminohippuric acid. transporter, which transports sodium ions into the cell and hydrogen ions out (Fig. 7) (Somogyi, 1996). A key feature of a drug undergoing tubular secretion is that it will compete with another drug for secretion, thus competition for transport is competitive.

These interactions have been categorized by Somogyi (1996); Table 7 summarizes their nature and sequelae. INTERACTIONS INVOLVING RENAL EXCRETORY MECHANISMS Table 7. 35 DRUGS WHICH ALTER TUBULAR REABSORETION OF LITHIUM BY ALTERING ITS RENAL CLEARANCE* Loop diuretics Increased serum lithium concentrations (61%) in 116 normal subjects; danger of toxicity. Sodium salts Failure to achieve and maintain therapeutic serum lithium concentrations. Theophylline Renal clearance of lithium increased (42%); decreased half-life; decrease in serum lithium concentrations (30%).

This is the most common type of drug-drug interaction involving renal excretory mechanisms (Somogyi, 1996). As the drug passes down the tubular lumen into the distal tubule and collecting duct, passive diffusion of drug takes place driven by the concentration gradient of drug across the cellular membrane back into the blood. The process of passive reabsorption is applicable to the unionized lipid-soluble form of the drug. Thus the pK, of the drug and the pH of the tubular fluid become important, as only the unionized form is sufficiently lipid soluble to diffuse through the epithelial membranes of the tubule cells.
