Abstract:The plasma concentrations of alpha 1-acid glycoprotein (AAG), albumin, triglycerides, cholesterol, and total proteins, as well as the plasma binding of racemic, d-methadone, and l-methadone were measured in 45 healthy subjects. The AAG phenotypes and the concentrations of AAG variants were also determined. The measured free fractions for racemic, d-methadone, and l-methadone were, respectively, 12.7% +/- 3.3%, 10.0% +/- 2.9%, and 14.2% +/- 3.2% (mean +/- SD). A significant correlation was obtained between the …
