Abstract

This study evaluated the effects of simulated microgravity (sμG) on the pharmacokinetics of ciprofloxacin. Six healthy volunteers participated in a crossover study to compare the pharmacokinetics of ciprofloxacin after a single 250-mg oral dose in normal gravity (1G) and sμG. Plasma and urine samples were collected, and in vivo microdialysis was employed to obtain the free interstitial concentrations in the thigh muscle. Tissue penetration (f) was determined as the ratio of the free tissue area under the concentration versus time curve (AUCtiss,free)/AUCplasma,free. Plasma and free interstitial ciprofloxacin concentrations were simultaneously fit to a 1-compartment body model after correction for protein binding and tissue penetration. Total and free plasma concentrations were very similar in sμG and 1G. Tissue penetration in sμG (f = 0.61 ± 0.36) was slightly lower than in 1G (f = 0.92 ± 0.63); however, the difference was not significant. The authors conclude that the disposition of ciprofloxacin was not affected by simulated microgravity.
