The potential of metabolites to contribute to drug-drug interactions (DDIs) is not well defined. The aim of this study was to determine the quantitative role of circulating metabolites in inhibitory DDIs in vivo. The area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC) data related to at least one circulating metabolite was available for 71% of the 102(More)
During the Past decade, nine new antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) namely, Felbamate, Gabapentin, Levetiracetam, Lamotrigine, Oxcarbazepine, Tiagabine, Topiramate, Vigabatrin and Zonisamide have been marketed worldwide. The introduction of these drugs increased appreciably the number of therapeutic combinations used in the treatment of epilepsy and with it, the(More)
In the presence of molecular oxygen and iron or copper ions, a number of antioxidants paradoxically generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) leading to free radical damage of nucleic acids and oxidative modification of lipids and proteins. The present work demonstrates that the combination of three components, which are often considered as part of an(More)
Guidance from the Food and Drug Administration on drug interaction studies does not include a specific section on contributions of metabolites to observed inhibitory drug-drug interactions, and the quantitative role of drug metabolites in inhibitory drug-drug interactions is not presently known. The current work was undertaken to evaluate what fraction of(More)
This article provides nomenclature recommendations developed by an international workgroup to increase transparency and standardization of pharmacogenetic (PGx) result reporting. Presently, sequence variants identified by PGx tests are described using different nomenclature systems. In addition, PGx analysis may detect different sets of variants for each(More)
As a follow-up to the new classification of CYP3A inhibitors, the present work was undertaken to search for quantitative correlations of AUC ratios between sensitive substrates and midazolam (reference). A large set of clinical studies was obtained utilizing the M&T Drug Interaction Database, and recent Product Labels. Linear relationships were found(More)
Marked increases in exposure of some substrates have been noted in poor metabolizers given inhibitors of nonpolymorphic enzymes. Among the small number of clinical trials conducted to investigate this problem, a wide variation in the degree of maximum exposure ratios (area under the curve in poor metabolizers in the presence of inhibitor/area under the(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop guidelines for selection of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) among people with HIV/AIDS. METHODS The literature was systematically reviewed to assess the global burden of relevant comorbid entities, to determine the number of patients who potentially utilize AEDs and antiretroviral agents (ARVs), and to address AED-ARV interactions.

A comprehensive search of the literature was undertaken using the Metabolism and Transport Drug Interaction Database (http://depts.washington.edu/didbase/) to evaluate the relationship between extent of inhibition and inhibitor dose. The search included reversible and irreversible inhibitors in studies conducted in the period 1966-2003. Only twelve(More)
The Metabolism and Transport Drug Interaction Database ( http://www.druginteractioninfo.org ) is a web-based research and analysis tool developed in the Department of Pharmaceutics at the University of Washington. The database has the largest manually curated collection of data related to drug interactions in humans. The tool integrates information from the(More)
