In vitro

Duloxetine is a potent inhibitor of serotonin (5-HT) and norepinephrine reuptake. Compared with its effects on 5-HT and norepinephrine reuptake, duloxetine weakly inhibits dopamine reuptake and has low binding affinity for other neurotransmitter receptors, including adrenergic, muscarinic (nonselective) and histamine H1 receptors; dopamine D2 receptors; 5-HT1A, 5-HT1D and 5-HT2C receptors; and opioid receptors. In vitro studies showed that more than 90% of duloxetine is protein bound in human plasma. The binding occurs primarily to albumin and a1-acid glycoprotein[1].

In vivo Duloxetine achieves a maximum plasma concentration (Cmax) of approximately 47 ng/mL (40mg twice-daily dosing) to 110 ng/mL (80 mg twice-daily dosing) approximately 6 hours after dosing. The elimination half-life of duloxetine is approximately 10–12 hours and the volume of distribution is approximately 1640 L. The absolute oral bioavailability averaged 50%, ranging from 30% to 80%, after a 60 mg single dose in one study and averaged 43%, ranging from 19% to 71%, in another study. Food and time of day impact duloxetine absorption, with food and bedtime administration delaying tmax by 4 hours[1].

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
