Utility of PharmacoGenomics for Reducing Adverse Drug Effects

UPGRADE aims to see whether data from Pharmacogenomic Testing (PGx) can help physicians manage patient medication regimens and assess if the testing has an effect on reducing adverse drug ...

Genetics Education: Preparing Physicians for the Future

This study examines the best way to teach genetics to family medicine residents. First year family medicine residents at the University of Toronto will be taught basic clinical genetics as...

Variation of Genes Controlling Carbohydrate and Lipid Metabolism

Aim of the study is to investigate genes regulating glucose and lipid metabolism in subjects whose glucose metabolism, lipid metabolism, blood flow, or body fat distribution has been measu...

Fenofibrate and Pharmacogenetic Impact in Dyslipidemia

The purpose of the study is to learn whether genetics plays a role in predicting response to a commonly used and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved medication for lowering triglyc...

Experiences of Genetics Patients With Visible Abnormalities Who Facilitate Teaching in Genetics Clinics

This study will describe the experience of patients with visible physical abnormalities in the genetics clinic when they are involved in teaching others about their condition. Information ...

A proposed nosology of inborn errors of metabolism.

We propose a nosology for inborn errors of metabolism that builds on their recent redefinition.

Delivery of amitriptyline by intravenous and intraperitoneal administration compared in the same animal by whole-body mass spectrometry imaging of a stable isotope labelled drug substance in mice.

The distribution and metabolism of a drug in the organism is dependent on the administration route as well as on the drug formulation. It is important to be able to assess which impact the administrat...

Differences in Duloxetine Dosing Strategies in Smoking and Nonsmoking Patients: Therapeutic Drug Monitoring Uncovers the Impact on Drug Metabolism.

For certain psychotropic drugs, such as clozapine or olanzapine, the influence of smoking on drug metabolism is well studied. Tobacco smoke increases the metabolism of drugs that are substrates for cy...

Computational Methods and Tools to Predict Cytochrome P450 Metabolism for Drug Discovery.

In this review we present important, recent developments in the computational prediction of cytochrome P450 (CYP) metabolism in the context of drug discovery. We discuss in silico models for the vario...

Mutations of Mycobacterium tuberculosis induced by anti-tuberculosis treatment result in metabolism changes and elevation of ethambutol resistance.

Selective pressure from antibiotic use is one of the most important risk factors associated with the development of drug resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). However, the mechanisms underly...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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.

Agents that aid or increase the action of the principle drug (DRUG SYNERGISM) or that affect the absorption, mechanism of action, metabolism, or excretion of the primary drug (PHARMACOKINETICS) in such a way as to enhance its effects.

The properties and processes of drug metabolism and drug interactions.

Any process by which toxicity, metabolism, absorption, elimination, preferred route of administration, safe dosage range, etc., for a drug or group of drugs is determined through clinical assessment in humans or veterinary animals.
