Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, “Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics”, will address the main aspects of drug metabolism and the pharmacokinetics of new and existing drugs. In drug development, Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion (ADME) are some of the most important aspects of a drug that a scientist must know of. The topics of papers submitted to this Special Issue can be about drug methods, models, and their applications, drug mechanisms, regulation (of drugs) by both genetic and epigenetic factors, and the clinical and toxicological data concerning drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic studies. Translational and clinical studies on important drug metabolizing enzymes and drug transporters will also be considered.
