The free concentration of ligand was determined by HPLC with the following columns (all from Cica Merck): Superspher 100 RP-18e for furosemide, LiChrosorb RP-select B for IS and IA, and LiChrosorb RP-18 for CMPF.
To examine IS, IA, HA, and CMPF as potential inhibitors of furosemide serum binding, we measured the free fraction of furosemide at therapeutic concentration (6.
Then, the adjusted nonuremic pool was supplemented with IA, IS, HA, and CMPF to mimic the concentrations of these compounds in the uremic pool.
The inhibition behaviors of IS, IA, and HA were qualitatively similar to each other, whereas the effect of CMPF was much stronger.
4 shows the effects of oleate on the free fraction of furosemide in serum with or without CMPF.
The presence of oleate at concentrations up to double the albumin concentration had no significant effect on the increased free fraction of furosemide caused by CMPF binding.
To elucidate the role of CMPF on the complicated inhibition behaviors on furosemide binding observed in serum containing oleate, furosemide, and CMPF, we examined the influence of oleate on the binding of CMPF to serum protein.
