Theophylline, popular diuretic, is used to treat asthma and bronchospasm. In
blood it forms complexes with albumin, which is also the main transporter of
fatty acids. The aim of the present study was to describe the influence of fatty
acids (FA) on binding of theophylline (Th) to human serum albumin (HSA) in the
high affinity binding sites. Binding parameters have been obtained on the basis
of the fluorescence analysis. The data obtained for the complex of Th and natural
human serum albumin (nHSA) obtained from blood of obese patients qualified for
surgical removal of stomach was compared with our previous studies on the
influence of FA on the complex of Th and commercially available defatted human
serum albumin (dHSA).
