Assessment of in vivo CYP2D6 activity: differential sensitivity of commonly used probes to urine pH.

Drug/metabolite ratios (MRs) are used as in vivo markers of enzyme activity. The ratios are potentially confounded by the renal clearance of the drug (urine-based MRs) or metabolite (plasma-based MRs). The authors have investigated the relative sensitivity of urinary MR of 3 in vivo probe substrates of CYP2D6 debrisoquine (DB), dextromethorphan (DM), and metoprolol (MP) […]
