PMID:  759069     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Kinetics of 8-methoxsalen were studied in 5 healthy subjects under fasting and nonfasting conditions. The plasma concentration-time data could be fitted to a zero order absorption one-compartment model. The area under the curve (AUC) values were higher (p less than 0.05) under nonfasting compared to fasting conditions, indicating higher relative bioavailability of the drug in the presence of food. No significant differences were observed in the lag-time for the start of the absorption, the apparent zero-order absorption rate constant, or the elimination rate constant. It is suggested that the drug should be taken in a standardized way in relation to food during the ultraviolet (UV) light treatment.
