New Manuscript in Drug Metabolism and Disposition

Our most recent publication entitled “Risk of Clinically Relevant Pharmacokinetic-based Drug-drug Interactions with Drugs Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Between 2013 and 2016” by Yu et al. is now available on Drug Metabolism and Disposition online FastForward site (https://dmd.aspetjournals.org). This is an extensive review of the NDA data we analyzed for the DIDB platform, with useful supplemental tables summarizing the main clinical findings.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

New “Overall Effect” for in vivo studies to include absorption-based DDIs

As a result of our continuous efforts to expand the DIDB platform coverage of pharmacokinetic-based drug interactions beyond metabolism and transport, the following new “Overall Effect” categories are now available for in vivo DDI studies:

  • In Vivo Other Mechanism >20% Effect
  • In Vivo Other Mechanism No Effect

With the following Study subtypes

  1. pH dependency (absorption)
  2. Binding/chelation (absorption)
  3. Gastrointestinal motility (absorption)
  4. Plasma protein binding displacement (distribution)
  5. Enzyme down-regulation/up-regulation reversal (metabolism)
  6. Complex/multifactorial mechanism

As we increase the number of citations pertaining to these mechanisms, you will start seeing these new studies in the queries (dropdown menus) and their results. As a first step, we entered all pH-dependent DDI evaluations (both negative and positive results) with proton pump inhibitors and we will continue adding absorption-based DDIs to the platform during the coming months.

Should you have questions, comments or concerns, please contact us.

  • New improved autocompletes to find the compound or therapeutic class you want.
  • You can now select a default compound to use in all DIDB queries.
  • New sortable and searchable query result tables.  Give these a try, you’ll like them.
  • Oh, and this all works on your tablet or phone… well, if your phone is shiny and new.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a fully functioning website is worth a thousand pictures. Check it out https://didb.druginteractionsolutions.org.
