2017 ISSX Poster Presentation – 2013-2016 NDA Review


The aim of the present work was to systematically review pharmacokinetic-based drug-drug interaction (DDI) data available in the most recent (2013-2016) New Drug Applications (NDAs) and highlight significant findings. The University of Washington Metabolism and Transport Drug Interaction Database was used to extract the results of metabolism, transport, and clinical DDI studies. All the DDI studies (new molecular entity (NME) as victim or perpetrator) with AUC changes ≥ 2-fold or < 2-fold but triggering dose recommendations were included in the analysis.
