ADME 101: Drug Metabolism Studies – Metabolic Stability
Presented by SEKISUI XenoTech Technical Support Managers, Drs. Andrew G. Taylor and Chris Bohl
Metabolic stability influences the oral bioavailability and plasma half-life of a compound. Metabolic stability assays measure intrinsic clearance and determine the extent to which a drug will be metabolized. This study can be conducted in a variety of test systems, which is why it may also be referred to as a hepatocyte stability study, microsomal stability study, etc. This quick overview video discusses:
- Test systems for stability assays
- Stability study endpoints
- Example data in different species
- Considerations for those wanting to conduct stability studies
