2019 ISSX Poster Presentation – Evaluation of OATP1B1/3 In Vitro Inhibition


The effect of inhibition of the organic anion transporting polypeptides (OATP) 1B1 and 1B3 has continued to grow in clinical significance and recognition. In the last five years, a signification portion of newly approved drugs in the US have been shown to be inhibitors of OATP1B1 and/or OATP1B3 in vitro. For this reason, it is critical to understand the effect of experimental variability on drug interaction predictions and how it impacts the decision for a clinical evaluation.
