Evaluate the ability of (-)-6-aminocarbovir ((-)-6AC) to improve the CNS exposure to (-)-carbovir ((-)-CBV). Activation of (-)-6AC in vitro was assessed by incubations of rat brain tissue homogenates. The in vivo brain exposure to (-)-CBV was then examined in rats...

Drug metabolism and disposition: the biological fate of chemicals, 27(1), 113-121 (1999-01-12)
Several in vitro and in situ approaches were used to determine the dominant presystemic activation site for (-)-6-aminocarbovir, (-)-carbocyclic 2',3'-didehydro-2', 3'-dideoxy-6-deoxy-6-aminoguanosine (6AC) conversion in rats. The in vitro disappearance half-lives (mean +/- S.D.) in the cytosolic fractions obtained from homogenates...

A CBV [(-)-carbovir, (-)-carbocyclic 2',3'-didehydro-2', 3'-dideoxyguanosine] prodrug, 6AC [(-)-6-aminocarbovir, (-)-carbocyclic 2',3'-didehydro-2', 3'-dideoxy-6-deoxy-6-aminoguanosine], was previously evaluated in rats, and it exhibited superiority to the parent drug in increasing systemic and central nervous system exposure to CBV. The gut wall was determined...

Drug metabolism and disposition: the biological fate of chemicals, 19(2), 462-466 (1991-03-01)
The potential for the metabolic conversion of (-)-6-aminocarbovir to (-)-carbovir, a potent reverse transcriptase inhibitor effective against human immunodeficiency virus, has been examined in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Plasma (-)-6-aminocarbovir concentrations declined rapidly in a biphasic manner following an iv bolus...

Small molecules are ions and compounds of molecular weight typically less than 900 daltons. These compounds can be effectively separated and analyzed by HPLC, UHPLC and LC-MS using mainly silica particles or monolithic stationary phases with a broad range of column chemistries (modifications).
