A drug appears in a column if there is published evidence that it is metabolized, at least in part, via that isoform. Overview This table is designed as a hypothesis testing, teaching and reference tool for physicians and researchers interested in drug interactions that are the result of competition for, or effects on the human cytochrome P450 system. It does not necessarily follow that the isoform is the principal metabolic pathway in vivo, or that alterations in the rate of the metabolic reaction catalyzed by that isoform will have large effects on the pharmacokinetics of the drug. Clinicians and health care providers may find an abbreviated clinical table designed for practical use during prescribing more useful. The table contains lists of drugs in columns under the designation of specific cytochrome P450 isoforms.
