Transporters in drug discovery and delivery
Drug transporters are now increasingly recognized as important determinants of variable drug disposition and response. In addition, transporter associated problems appear to be occurring with greater frequency during the drug discovery and development process. Drug transporters are expressed in many tissues such as the intestine, liver, kidney, and brain, and play key roles in drug absorption, distribution, and excretion. The information on the functional characteristics of drug transporters provides important information to allow improvements in drug delivery or drug design by targeting specific transporter proteins.
