Recently, we reported the successful application of a novel mathematical model describing drug disposition in eye compartments to simulate disposition of clonidine after topical (eye drop) administration. This example extends the methodology to describe the disposition of timolol in different eye tissues and plasma after topical administration. Timolol is a nonselective beta-adrenoceptor antagonist used to lower intraocular pressure (IOP). A serious disadvantage of ocular timolol therapy is the amount of drug getting into systemic circulation that adversely affects vital organ functions in elderly patients.

Inecalcitol Stimulates CD38 Expression in Multiple Myeloma and Acute Myeloid Leukemia Cell LinesPoster
Inecalcitol is a vitamin D receptor agonist currently in Phase II clinical trial in AML (acute myeloid leukemia). Inecalcitol increases the expression of CD38 at the surface of 5 multiple myeloma cell lines; therefore, inecalcitol could potentiate the clinical response of MM patients to a therapeutic anti-CD38 antibody
Inecalcitol induces the expression of the CD38 antigen at the surface of 4 AML cell lines; thus, inecalcitol could render AML patients sensitive to a therapeutic anti-CD38.
