Dược Động Học :
▧ Absorption :
The mean relative bioavailability is 38-49% for the tablet form, when compared to an oral solution. Sorafenib reached peak plasma levels in 3 hours following oral administration. With a high-fat meal, bioavailability is reduced by 29% compared to administration in the fasted state.
▧ Protein binding :
99.5% bound to plasma proteins.
▧ Metabolism :
Sorafenib is metabolized primarily in the liver, undergoing oxidative metabolism, mediated by CYP3A4, as well as glucuronidation mediated by UGT1A9. Sorafenib accounts for approximately 70-85% of the circulating analytes in plasma at steady- state. Eight metabolites of sorafenib have been identified, of which five have been detected in plasma. The main circulating metabolite of sorafenib in plasma, the pyridine N-oxide, shows in vitro potency similar to that of sorafenib. This metabolite comprises approximately 9-16% of circulating analytes at steady-state.
▧ Route of Elimination :
Following oral administration of a 100 mg dose of a solution formulation of sorafenib, 96% of the dose was recovered within 14 days, with 77% of the dose excreted in feces, and 19% of the dose excreted in urine as glucuronidated metabolites.
▧ Half Life :
