Despite this, diltiazem has a low bioavailability owing to hepatic first-pass metabolism. $0$0$0$0$0Biotransformation$0$0Diltiazem is extensively metabolised by the liver. The desacetyl metabolite is considered to be approximately 25% to 50% as potent a coronary vasodilator as diltiazem and is present in plasma at concentrations of 10% to 20% of parent. extensively and only 1.0-3.0% of the dose is excreted in urine as metabolised diltiazem.$0$0$0$0$0Elimination$0$0The mean elimination half life of diltiazem is around 4 hours, but this is extended from prolonged-release formulations. Mean plasma concentrations in elderly subjects and patients with renal and hepatic insufficiency are higher than in young subjects.$0$0$0$0$0Linearity/non-linearity$0$0This process of first-pass metabolism process is saturable at higher doses of the drug. This results in a non-linear accumulation and higher blood concentrations at steady state than would be anticipated from those following a single dose. From modified-release preparations, the prolonged delivery of diltiazem can significantly reduce the degree of non-linearity associated with conventional formulations.$0$0The release of the drug has been prolonged in the capsules by special pharmaceutical technology. The high peak concentrations of the absorption phase have been eliminated. This allows the capsules to be administered once daily.$0$0$0$0$0Section 5.3:$0$0Information has been added regarding genotoxicity, carcinogenicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity.$0$0$0$0$0There are no pre-clinical data of relevance to the prescriber, which are additional to that already included in other sections of the SPC.$0$0$0$0$0There are no pre-clinical data of relevance to the prescriber, which are additional to that already included in other sections of the SPC. $0$0Genotoxicity and Carcinogenicity$0$0Diltiazem was not genotoxic when tested in vitro in two bacterial mutation tests with and without metabolic activation, and in two clastogenicity assays.$0$0Diltiazem was not carcinogenic in two long term carcinogenicity studies, in rats and mice.$0$0$0$0$0Reproductive and developmental toxicity$0$0Diltiazem was toxic to the developing embryo in studies in mice, rats and rabbits when dosed to the mother at critical stages during organ development. Skeletal malformations occurred in the limbs, tail and ribs of all three species.$0$0Diltiazem had an adverse effect upon male fertility in rats, with decreases in sperm count, sperm motility and epididymal weight, although these effects were reversible on cessation of dosing.$0$0$0$0$0Section 10:$0$0The date of revision of the text has been updated to 21 March 2017.$0$0$0$0
