Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of Sentri7, a real-time patient surveillance, documentation and reporting system, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar with John Horn, PharmD: "Drug Interactions: An Update for 2010."
Horn will discuss the role of the cytochrome P450 system in drug metabolism. Understanding the pathway of metabolism for an object drug enables one to predict precipitant drugs that are likely to interact. The risk of a potential drug interaction to an individual patient will depend on many factors including genetics, doses of object and precipitant drugs, underlying disease states, and route of drug administration.
Evidence defining the potential risk of a drug interaction is often limited. Numerous factors can alter the outcome of drug interaction studies and these factors need to be carefully controlled to obtain the best data possible. Interactions with conflicting outcome data, including warfarin and clopidogrel, will be discussed to illustrate the factors that can alter the study outcomes.
Drug Interactions: An Update for 2010
Date: Wednesday, August 18, 2010
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
