A Based on 13 days of dosing. b Female mice. seen in female rats or male and female mice. From these important sex and species differences, regulatory agencies have concluded the male rat kidney tumors are of limited relevance to humans, a species which is also deficient in α-2-microglobulin. Finally, certain animal strains are uniquely sensitive to certain types of cancer. For example, a large proportion of B6C3F1 mice develop liver tumors before they die, and this sensitivity appears to be due in part to the fact that the H-ras oncogene in this mouse strain is hypomethylated, allowing this oncogene to be expressed more easily, especially during recurrent hepatocellular injury.

For example, it has been shown that the partition coefficients of the nonionized forms of several series of representative drugs can be correlated with their rates of transfer across a number of biological membrane systems—from intestinal lumen into blood, from plasma into brain and into cerebrospinal fluid, and from lung into blood. 1). Molecular Size The second important feature of a molecule determining ease of movement across a membrane is molecular size. As the cylindrical radius of the molecule increases, with lipophilicity remaining approximately constant, rate of movement across the membrane decreases.
