Reports Outline Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics Findings from AIT Austrian Institute of Technology (Using Positron Emission Tomography to Study Transporter-Mediated Drug-Drug Interactions in Tissues)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Drug Week -- Data detailed on Drugs and Therapies have been presented. According to news reporting originating from Seibersdorf, Austria, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Drug disposition is highly regulated by membrane transporters."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, "Some transporter-mediated drug-drug interactions (DDIs) may not manifest themselves in changes in systemic exposure but rather in changes in tissue exposure of drugs. To better assess the impact of transporter-mediated DDIs in tissues, positron emission tomography (PET)-a noninvasive imaging method-plays an increasingly important role."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In this article, we provide examples of how PET can be used to assess transporter-mediated DDIs in different organs."
