Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics – an overview

12 December 2009 | By

The journey from molecular target and early drug lead to the clinic is an arduous one with many hurdles to cross prior to developing a successful clinical candidate. The high rate of attrition of drug molecules has forced drug researchers to pay greater attention to drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics (DMPK)…


Drug-drug interactions: tools for drug transporter protein studies

30 July 2009 | By

Drug transporters are membrane proteins involved in the uptake or efflux of drugs by several tissues such as the intestine, liver, kidney and brain. They can have a significant impact on the pharmacokinetics of endogenous and exogenous compounds. Also, co-administered drugs or nutrients can influence the transporter activity which may…
