Drug metabolism and disposition: the biological fate of chemicals, 43(1), 119-125 (2014-11-06)
The suppression of hepatic cytochrome P450 (P450) expression during inflammatory and infectious diseases and the relief of this suppression by successful disease treatment have been previously demonstrated to impact drug disposition. To address this clinically relevant phenomenon preclinically, the effect
