Natural Product-–Drug Interactions Research: The Roadmap to Best Practices

University of Washington
Seattle, WA
United States

As natural products sales increase, the risk of adverse interactions with drugs increases, yet the pharmacokinetics and clinical relevance of putative interactions remain elusive. This center is developing a roadmap for natural product drug interaction research through a series of well-designed human in vitro and in vivo studies on four to six priority natural products that pose a potential risk for clinically relevant drug interactions. A repository will be developed for the data generated by the center, and results will be communicated to various target audiences through a public portal.
