P-glycoprotein and Its Role in Treatment Resistance

Işıl Göğcegöz Gül, Gül Eryılmaz, K. Oğuz Karamustafalıoğlu.

Polypharmacy which has often used to increase efficacy of treatment and to prevent resistance in psychiatry may lead to pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic drug interactions. One of the inten-sively studied topic in recent years to clarify the mechanism of drug interactions, in the pharmacoki-netic area is p-glycoprotein related drug-drug and drug-food interactions. The interactions of some drugs with p-glycoprotein which is a carrier protein, can lead to a decrease in the bioavailability of these drugs and reduction in passage through the blood-brain barrier. In this review, the role of p-glycoprotein on drug pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of psychiatric drugs are discussed.

Key words: P glycoprotein, multipl drug resistance, blood–brain barrier
