Carrier-mediated transport can require energy, as in active transport, or facilitated diffusion where no energy input is required, such as glucose’s movement mediated via the GLUT4 transporter across a cell membrane. These mechanisms can be required for a drug to distribute to where it needs to go (absorption and distribution) or to remove it from the body (metabolism and excretion). Transporters play an important role in defining a drug’s pharmacokinetic profile. The most pharmacologically important transporters usually fall into one of the two superfamilies, the ATP binding cassette (ABC) and solute carrier (SLC) transporters.
The BPCA Data Coordinating Center, the Pediatric Trials Network, the FDA, and the Institutional Review Boards). The protocol becomes the blueprint for the trial and the basis for the Investigational New Drug submission to FDA. 3 Drug Development for Pediatric Diseases with Bone Loss 35 To ensure the participant safety, all researchers and staff involved with clinical trials must follow every federal regulation and ethical guideline in conducting the study. Frequent evaluation by those involved and by independent entities throughout the course of the trial provides added safety.
For drugs with little hepatic metabolism or biliary excretion and/or metabolites, the kidney represents the major process for drug elimination (see below). The secretion of drugs into the renal tubular lumen is usually a transport-mediated multi-step process mostly carried out in the proximal tubule. For the clinician, the most important aspect to remember about this process rather than how it occurs is that the process is saturable, modifiable, and subject to genetic mutations. Therefore, some drug’s renal elimination may be reduced at high concentrations.
