Research Summary: Analytical Toxicology, Drug Binding, and Drug Metabolism

Dr. Bailey's research has focused on development of analytical methodology for measuring drugs and drug metabolites; on the binding of drugs to human tissues; and on the percutaneous absorption of drugs with particular emphasis on psychotropic drugs and drugs of abuse.

Key Contributions to Pharmaceutical Sciences

  • Reported the binding of cocaethylene and other cocaine homologs to human serum proteins and tissues
  • Reported serum concentrations and developed profiles of toxicity related to drug concentrations for a number of psychotropic drugs in various patient populations
  • Reported percutaneous absorption of a number of drugs of abuse
