ADME 101: Reaction Phenotyping Studies in Drug Metabolism
Presenter: Andrew Taylor, Ph.D., Services Technical Support Manager
It is important to identify the enzymes that significantly contribute to the metabolism of a drug candidate and to evaluate the potential of a drug candidate to be a victim or perpetrator. Knowing how a drug candidate is eliminated by theHuman body is important in understanding the potential for drug-drug interactions. Compounds with a single route of elimination have a high victim potential, which is why the FDA requires reaction phenotyping studies. This short, information-packed webinar features:
- An overview of drug metabolism studies
- 2020 FDA recommendations
- Standard CYP reaction phenotyping study designs (recombinant enzyme, chemical inhibition or correlation analysis) and when to perform them
- Test system selection and more…
