[In vivo study of the pharmacokinetic interaction of afobazole and losartan (cytochrome CYP2C9 substrate)].
Eksp Klin Farmakol. 2013;76(3):35-7
The influence of afobazole on isoenzyme CYP2C9 production in rats was studied using losartan as the marker drug. Single dose of losartan was administered orally without afobazole in a dose of 30 mg/kg and in the same single (30 mg/kg) on the background of 3- and 4-day administration of afobazole in a dose of 5, 25, 75, 100, and 125 mg/kg. At 5 mg/kg (effective dose for anxiolytic effect), afobazole did not cause any induction/inhibition effect on CYP2C9 isoenzyme. A multiple increase in afobazole dose was manifested by a moderate induction effect. The maximum induction effect of afobazole was achieved in a dose of 75 mg/kg. At doses above 75 mg/kg, the induction effect of afobazole was less pronounced.
