Guide for Authors
Drug metabolism is the metabolic breakdown of drugs by living organisms , usually through specialized enzymatic systems. More generally, xenobiotic metabolism from the Greek xenos "stranger" and biotic "related to living beings" is the set of metabolic pathways that modify the chemical structure of xenobiotics , which are compounds foreign to an organism's normal biochemistry, such as any drug or poison. These pathways are a form of biotransformation present in all major groups of organisms and are considered to be of ancient origin. These reactions often act to detoxify poisonous compounds although in some cases the intermediates in xenobiotic metabolism can themselves cause toxic effects. The study of drug metabolism is called pharmacokinetics.

Current Drug Metabolism
It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics Quick Guide is intended for broad readership of those interested in the discipline of drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics who work in drug discovery coming from the various disciplines, a background such as of medicinal chemistry, pharmacology, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics, bioanalysis, clinical sciences, biochemistry, pharmaceutics or toxicology. This guide provides, for the first time, a completely integrated look at multiple aspects of absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion ADME science in a summary format that is clear, concise and self-explanatory. This book will be used and referenced frequently as it provides detailed figures and tables for data interpretation.
Until now, the area of drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics has been lacking in texts written for the Medicinal Chemist. This outstanding book, aimed at postgraduate medicinal chemists and those working in industry, fills this gap in the literature. Written by medicinal chemists and ADMET scientists with a combined experience of around years, this aid to discovering drugs addresses the absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicity ADMET issues associated with drugs.
The journal will accept original submissions in English on the understanding that the work is unpublished and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Scope of submitted manuscripts DMPK publishes original and innovative scientific papers that address topics broadly related to xenobiotics. The term xenobiotic includes medicinal as well as environmental and agricultural chemicals and macromolecules. Manuscript handling fees Authors are requested to pay a manuscript handling fee the amount equivalent to the annual membership fee of JSSX within 2 weeks.
Drug metabolism input to the discovery process has been to date largely on an empirical case by case basis. Considerable advances have been made, such that basic rules can be applied to the behaviour of a compound in man based on physico-chemistry and structure. This is particularly true in the area of the cytochrome P enzymes, the principal enzymes involved in the primary clearance of drugs.

Current Drug Metabolism aims to cover all the latest and outstanding developments in drug metabolism, pharmacokinetics, and drug disposition. Current Drug Metabolism is an essential journal for academic, clinical, government and pharmaceutical scientists who wish to be kept informed and up-to-date with the most important developments. The journal covers the following general topic areas: pharmaceutics, pharmacokinetics, toxicology, and most importantly drug metabolism. More specifically, in vitro and in vivo drug metabolism of phase I and phase II enzymes or metabolic pathways; drug-drug interactions and enzyme kinetics; pharmacokinetics, pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic modeling, and toxicokinetics; interspecies differences in metabolism or pharmacokinetics, species scaling and extrapolations; drug transporters; target organ toxicity and interindividual variability in drug exposure-response; extrahepatic metabolism; bioactivation, reactive metabolites, and developments for the identification of drug metabolites. Preclinical and clinical reviews describing the drug metabolism and pharmacokinetics of marketed drugs or drug classes. Search Advanced Search. Toggle navigation.
