Metformin and Cimetidine: Physiologically-based Pharmacokinetic Modeling to Investigate Transporter Mediated Drug-drug Interactions

Metformin is used as a probe for OCT2 mediated transport when investigating possible DDIs with new chemical entities. The aim of the current study was to investigate the ability of physiologically–based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) models to simulate the effects of OCT and MATE inhibition by cimetidine on metformin kinetics. PBPK models were developed, incorporating mechanistic kidney […]
