Journal of pharmacokinetics and biopharmaceutics, 21(5), 533-550 (1993-10-01)
Intravenous infusions of nitroglycerin (GTN), 1,2-glyceryl dinitrate (1,2-GDN), and 1,3-glyceryl dinitrate (1,3-GDN) were given to four conscious dogs at 10 micrograms/min, 30 micrograms/min, 50 micrograms/min, and 70 micrograms/min of GTN and 20 micrograms/min and 100 micrograms/min of GDNs. The steady...

Clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, 52(6), 590-596 (1992-12-01)
Independent of the route of nitroglycerin administration, substantial amounts of 1,2-glyceryl dinitrate (1,2-GDN) and 1,3-glyceryl dinitrate (1,3-GDN) metabolites accumulate in humans. Thus far their pharmacologic activity in comparison to nitroglycerin in humans is unknown. To compare the venodilatory potency of...

The metabolism of nitroglycerin (GTN) to 1,2- and 1,3-glyceryl dinitrate (GDN) by hairless mouse skin in vitro has been measured. In the first set of experiments, GTN was incubated with the 9000g supernatant of fresh, homogenized tissue in the presence...

Clinical physiology and functional imaging, 28(4), 229-234 (2008-04-04)
Patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) often require higher doses of nitroglycerin (glyceryl trinitrate, GTN) than patients with normal cardiac function to achieve a given haemodynamic goal. Two pathways leading to biotransformation of GTN have been characterized; a high-affinity pathway...

Pharmaceutical research, 15(4), 614-619 (1998-05-20)
To construct a pharmacokinetic (PK) model and to determine population PK parameters of nitroglycerin (GTN), 1,2-dinitroglycerin (1,2-GDN), and 1,3-dinitroglycerin (1,3-GDN). Data were obtained in thirty healthy volunteers following a single dose of a GTN reservoir transdermal patch. Blood samples were...
