This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Jerry Ingrande, Stanford University
  Purpose
This study will determine how morbid obesity affects the distribution and metabolism of the drug propofol. The investigators hypothesize that propofol will be distributed and metabolized differently in morbidly obese subjects as compared to normal weight subjects.

Condition Intervention
Morbid Obesity Drug: propofol

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Non-Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Official Title: A High Resolution Pharmacokinetic/Pharmacodynamic Model of Propofol in Morbidly Obese Subjects

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • plasma drug concentration of propofol [ Time Frame: measured during the perioperative period ]

    Plasma concentration over time will be measured and modeled in order to calculate drug clearance, volume of distribution, area under the curve, and micro rate constants.

    Knowledge of these variables will allow safer administration of anesthetic drug administration in the obese population. Knowledge of these parameters will allow propofol to be administered safely in morbily obese subjects.



Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: January 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: July 2017
Estimated Primary Completion Date: July 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Morbidly obese subjects
Morbidly obese subjects (body mass index greater than 40) will be given propofol for induction of general anesthesia. Plasma samples will be taken to ascertain drug concentration over time.
Drug: propofol
Morbidly obese subjects (body mass index greater than 40)and control subjects (body mass index 20-25) will be given propofol for induction of general anesthesia. Plasma samples will be taken to ascertain drug concentration over time.
Active Comparator: Control subjects (body mass index 20-25)
Normal weight subjects (body mass index 20-25) will be given propofol during induction of general anesthesia. Plasma samples will be collected over time to ascertain propofol plasma concentration.
Drug: propofol
Morbidly obese subjects (body mass index greater than 40)and control subjects (body mass index 20-25) will be given propofol for induction of general anesthesia. Plasma samples will be taken to ascertain drug concentration over time.
