Drug transporters are critically important for the absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) of many drugs and endogenous compounds. Therefore, disruption of these pathways by inhibition, induction, genetic polymorphisms, or disease can have profound effects on overall physiology, drug pharmacokinetics, drug efficacy, and toxicity. This white paper provides a review of changes in transporter function associated with acute and chronic disease states, describes regulatory pathways affecting transporter expression, and identifies opportunities to advance the field.
