Stoelting’s Pharmacology & Physiology in Anesthetic Practice Chapter 2 Basic Principles of Pharmacology

a drug that activates a receptor by binding to that receptor

a drug that binds to the receptor without activating the receptor

a combination of ionic, hydrogen, and van der Waals interactions
How do agonist and antagonists bind?

the sum of the attractive or repulsive forces between molecules
What is van der Waals interactions?

interaction irreversible
What happens if covalently bonded?

Competitive antagonism
Increasing concentrations of the antagonist progressively inhibit the response to the agonist

Rightward displacement or concentration response
What does competitive antagonism cause?

Noncompetitive antagonism
Is present when, after administration of an antagonist, even high concentrations of agonist cannot completely overcome the antagonism?

EC50 the drug concentration giving 50% maximal effect (not binding affinity – the magnitude of a drug effect is not proportional to the proportion of receptors occupied by that drug) a drug with a lower EC50 is more potent (half …

Absorption refers to the movement of drug into the bloodstream, with the rate dependent on the physical characteristics of the drug and its formation. Refers to the passage of drug molecules from the site of administration into the circulation. Active …
