Brief description Tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) are a new class of anticancer agents. Cancer patients typically receive multiple drugs, for the treatment of cancer and other diseases, increasing the probability of interactions between coadministered drugs. Despite the widespread use of TKIs, their potential to cause drug interactions is poorly understood. Using novel in vitro approaches, this project will identify drug interactions precipitated by TKIs thereby improving drug efficacy and patient safety.
