The first of these, the cytochrome P450 pathway, has been better studied in animals than in humans. Studies in human abortuses suggest that concentrations of P450 are low or absent in the fetus (12) and that maternal exposure to drugs that induce hepatic function have little effect on the fetus (13). In calves, activity of various cytochrome P450 isoenzymes is low at birth, increasing markedly, but at different rates, during the first month of life (14). For example, O-deethylase activity at one week of age exceeds mature values, whereas N-demethylase and O-demethylase activity remains immature at one week of age (14).

The extracellular fluid volume (ECF) of the fetus represents 55% of body weight decreasing to 44% of body weight at term (1). During infancy, ECF decreases further, approaching the adult value (21-22%) by one year of age (1). This 2-3 fold change affects those drugs whose distribution is limited to extracellular water, particularly muscle relaxants. For example, we demonstrated that the d-tubocurarine's volume of distribution at steadystate is greatest in neonates and greater in infants than in children and 49 T.
