Abstract

Background Fetal blood and plasma volume and binding components are critical parameters in a fetal physiologically based pharmacokinetic model. To date, a comprehensive review of their changes during fetal development has not been reported. Objective The objective of this work was to collate and analyze physiological information on fetal blood and plasma volume and binding component data during development and to provide a mathematical description of these parameters that can be integrated within a fetal physiologically based pharmacokinetic model. Methods A comprehensive literature search was conducted on fetal blood and plasma volume and binding component parameters and their changes during growth from apparently healthy fetuses from uncomplicated pregnancies. Collated data were assessed, integrated, and analyzed to establish continuous mathematical functions describing their growth trends with fetal age and weight. Results Data were available from 14 studies for blood, ten studies for hematocrit, 12 studies for albumin, and four studies for alpha-1-acid glycoprotein, while plasma and red blood cell volumes were described based on blood and hematocrit data. Fetal physiologically based pharmacokinetic parameters, including blood, plasma and red blood cell volumes, hematocrit, serum albumin, and acid glycoprotein were quantified as a function of fetal age and weight.
