Drug transporters – from in-vitro methods to brain penetration

Berlin, (PresseBox) - New FDA safety guidelines concerning active drug transporters will be released within the coming months. Get updates on new regulatory requirements at IQPC’s 3rd International Conference on Clinically Relevant Drug Transporters, 27 – 29 February 2012 in Berlin. Meet leading scientists from major pharmaceutical companies and research institutes to discover for example the impact of drug transporters on drug-drug interaction and much more.

The conference will address the most crucial topics facing the pharmaceutical industry and is the only conference dedicated entirely to drug transporters.
Presentations are grouped around the following themes:

• Regulation overview and panel discussion: FDA and EMA
• Tools for studying transporters, such as in-silico models and in-vitro data
• Pharmacogenomics of drug transporters and transporter pharmacoproteomics
• Drug-drug interaction: in-vitro screening and techniques
• Blood-brain barrier and intestinal drug transportation

On February 27, conference participants will get the chance to take part in four different interactive workshops, led by experts Dr. Lassina Badolo (Principle Scientist at H. Lundbeck), Dr. James Clarke (Senior Scientist at GlaxoSmithkline), Prof. Margareta Hammarlund-Udenaes (Uppsala University), and Dr. Imad Hanna (Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research). Discuss topics like the in-vivo metabolism of drugs, transporter modeling and DDI, pharmacokinetic aspects of drug transport to the brain and drug transport with special focus on cellular membranes.

Don’t miss the opportunity to hear case studies by leading scientists in the field, such as Dr. Katharina Mertsch on risk assessments and regulations (Sanofi-Aventis) and Prof. Mikko Niemi on the pharmacogenomics of drug transporters (University of Helsinki).
