Abstract: Cyclosporine A (CSA) is an immunosuppressant drug, metabolized mainly by CYP3A4 that is one of the Cytochrome P450 enzymes. Clindamycin (CLN) is a lincosamide antibiotic, inducing CYP3A4 activity in vitro and thereby may alter CSA pharmacokinetics (PK). The current research was performed to investigate the PK parameters changes of CSA up on co-administrating with CLN in healthy male rabbits. Twelve healthy male rabbits randomly were selected and divided into two groups: Control set (n=6) in which the rabbits were received oral normal saline CSA solution (10 mg/kg/day), meanwhile rabbits in the test group (n=6) were treated with oral normal saline CSA solution (10 mg/kg/day) concomitantly with normal saline solution of CLN (8 mg/kg/day) at the same time for 7 days. Blood samples (2 mL) were collected and CSA concentrations were measured in whole blood at the predetermined time points by using Chemiluminescenct Immunoassay (CLIA) detection kit. PK proļ¬les of CSA for both groups in the control and test groups including Cmax, tmax, AUC0-24, AUC0-āˆž, t½ and Ke were compared. The results showed a statistically insignificant differences in the PK parameters of CSA alone or combined with CLN with P>0.05. In conclusion, it has been found that CLN does not affect the CSA PK. Further confirmation of our findings is requiered in humans before these results can be applied in patient care.
