Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics Quick Guide covers a number of aspects of drug assessment at drug discovery and development stages, topics such as pharmacokinetics, absorption, metabolism, enzyme kinetics, drug transporters, drug interactions, drug-like properties, assays and in silico calculations. It covers key concepts, with useful tables on physiological parameters (eg. blood flow to organs in x-species, expression and localization of enzymes and transporters), chemical structure, nomenclature, and moieties leading to bioactivation (with examples). Overall it includes a number of key topics useful at the drug discovery stage, which would serve as a quick reference with several examples from the literature to illustrate the concept.AUC AUCi CAR Cmax CLint DME I Imax IC50 MBI po ES P450 PXR SULT TDI UGT v vi Vmax Area under the curve Area ... of product k inact First-order rate constant for the formation of inactivated enzyme K m MichaelisaMenten constant (i.e., anbsp;...
