Efflux pumps, P-glycoprotein (P-gp), multidrug resistance-associated proteins (MRPs), and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) have been shown to extrude HIV protease inhibitors from cells. These transporters are present on many barrier sites such as the blood-brain barrier (BBB) and on many circulating cells such as lymphocytes, and could reduce(More)
Efflux proteins have been shown to greatly affect the uptake of antiretroviral drugs by cells and to hamper their access to the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 replication site. This study evaluated the factors that may lead to drug-drug interactions between emtricitabine (FTC), tenofovir (TFV), and efavirenz (EFV), including the modulation of efflux(More)
Efflux proteins have been shown to greatly affect the uptake of antiretroviral drugs by cells and to prevent their access to the HIV-1 replication site. The active efflux of these drugs might produce subtherapeutic drug levels and favor resistant viral strains and the emergence of sanctuary sites. This study has been performed to investigate whether(More)
