Research output: Other contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


Beta2-agonists are chiral compounds, typically administered as 50:50 racemic mixtures of two enantiomers (stereoisomers denoted by R- and S- descriptors); molecules with non- superimposable mirror images analogous to right and left hands. Despite salbutamol (SALB) being used for over 40 years, there is surprisingly little information known about the enantioselective bronchopulmonary pharmacokinetics.
