Predicting drug-drug interactions to reduce adverse event risk

Presented by

Marnix Wieffer

About this talk

Adverse drug reactions (ADRs) are a serious problem worldwide. One reason for the increase in ADRs is the growth in prescription use—especially among aging populations where drug–drug interactions (DDIs) are more likely. Currently, 9 percent of Americans over age 55 take 10 or more prescription drugs, which greatly increases the likelihood of DDIs and ADRs. Identifying potential drug-drug interaction risk is a key priority for pharmaceutical manufacturers and regulatory authorities. To minimize health risks to clinical trial subjects and patients, assessments should be performed as early as possible in development. Join solution marketing manager Dr Marnix Wieffer for this webinar where he will discuss outstanding issues with predicting Drug-drug interaction risk and possible solutions. We run through a couple of live examples that show how PharmaPendium is supporting Drug-drug interaction risk prediction. Using PharmaPendium we will investigate •What enzymes and transporters act on my drug of interest? •What is the DDI risk for drugs that are substrates CYP2D6? •What is the DDI risk of my drug under development with Antiarrhythmic drugs?
