Emphasizing pharmacogenomics and its influence on drug therapy, this book offers a comprehensive guide to drug transporters that influence the absorption, distribution, and elimination of drugs in the individual patients body. It covers new and emerging aspects of drug transporter pharmacogenomics, from the basic science, to transporter function, factors that influence transporters, impact on bioavailability and disposition, metabolism-transport interplay, pharmaceutical applications, and regulatory matters. The book has sufficient detail for non-specialists while also providing a practical, hands-on resource for researchers in the pharmaceutical industry, academic research, and government agencies.
