  120. all oral medication goes through this first
    the liver
  121. xenobiotic
    foreign substances
  122. hepatic portal system does what?
    conducts blood from intestine to liver to allow the liver to remove potential toxins/non-natural substances before they reach systemic circulation. once removed or depleted by the liver, the substance is allowed to re-enter circulation and move to the tissues to perform its function
  123. first-pass effect
    phenomena where the liver removes so much of the drug or foreign substances that little reaches the systemic circulation
  124. biotransformation
    drugs are altered by enzymes and chemical reactions in the body before they are eliminated
  125. metabolite
    altered drug molecule
  126. majority of enzymes for biotransformation are found in the

    (usually results in a metabolite that is more hydrophilic and more readily eliminated by the kidney or liver)
  127. active form of the drug
  128. phases of biotransformation
    1- drug chemically altered by oxidation, reduction or hydrolysis in liver producing metabolite (active form of drug) metabolite is capable of producing desired biological effect

    2- metabolism of metabolite is combined with another molecule like glucuronic acid. the product of their union is usually hydrophilic and readily excreted into the urine
  129. prodrugs
    drugs that require biotransformation to become active
  130. 2 major routes of elimination
    • renal elimination into urine
    • liver into bile

    (inhalation anesthetics eliminated via lungs primarily at about 98%)
  131. MFO
    Mixed Function Oxidase system

    • biotransformation system in the liver
    • result of repeated exposure of drugs to MFO system results in an increased rate of biotransformation for those drugs--number of MFO enzyme molecules available for biotransformation increased when MFO system is repeatedly exposed to certain drugs

    (will also increase biotransformation of similar drugs, therefore, those doses must be increased to compensate)
  132. increased rate of metabolism
    metabolic induction
  133. during metabolic induction, metabolism of the drug is called
    induced metabolism
  134. enterohepatic circulation
    movement of drug from liver to intestinal tract and back to the liver
