Summary of "Drug-Drug Interaction Study of Apixaban with Cyclosporine and Tacrolimus in Healthy Volunteers."

Apixaban is metabolized by cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A4 in the liver and intestine, undergoes direct intestinal excretion, and is a substrate to permeability glycoprotein (P-gp) and breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) transporters. We examined the drug interactions between cyclosporine and tacrolimus (combined inhibitors of CYP3A4, P-gp and, BCRP) with apixaban in 12 healthy adult male volunteers. Apixaban 10 mg was administered orally alone, in combination with 100 mg cyclosporine or 5 mg tacrolimus. Co-administration with cyclosporine resulted in increase in apixaban maximum plasma concentration (C ) and area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to the last quantifiable concentration [AUC ] with associated geometric mean ratios (GMR) and 90% confidence intervals (CI) of 143% (112, 183) and 120% (97, 148). Co-administration with tacrolimus resulted in reduction in apixaban C and AUC with associated GMRs (90% CI) of 87% (69, 112) and 78% (63, 97). The observed changes in apixaban exposure margins with cyclosporine or tacrolimus are within the range of the historical clinical development program, therefore apixaban dose adjustments are not warranted.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Forms to which substances are incorporated to improve the delivery and the effectiveness of drugs. Drug carriers are used in drug-delivery systems such as the controlled-release technology to prolong in vivo drug actions, decrease drug metabolism, and reduce drug toxicity. Carriers are also used in designs to increase the effectiveness of drug delivery to the target sites of pharmacological actions. Liposomes, albumin microspheres, soluble synthetic polymers, DNA complexes, protein-drug conjugates, and carrier erythrocytes among others have been employed as biodegradable drug carriers.

Diminished or failed response of an organism, disease or tissue to the intended effectiveness of a chemical or drug. It should be differentiated from DRUG TOLERANCE which is the progressive diminution of the susceptibility of a human or animal to the effects of a drug, as a result of continued administration.

A component of the Executive Office of the President established by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988. The Office establishes policies, priorities, and objectives for national DRUG AND NARCOTIC CONTROL. The goals of the program are to reduce illicit drug use, manufacturing, and trafficking, drug-related crime and violence, and drug-related health consequences.

The action of a drug that may affect the activity, metabolism, or toxicity of another drug.

The action of a drug in promoting or enhancing the effectiveness of another drug.
