• Drug Metabolism

    Drug metabolism is the process by which the body breaks down and converts medication into active chemical substances so your body can react to the medicinal properties of each drug.

    The study of drug metabolism is vitally important to our understanding of the time course of drugs in the body, the structuring of dosage regimens, the pharmacology and toxicology of drug metabolites, and the interactions of multiple drug combinations. Most medications used to treat the behavioral symptoms of Autism are metabolized in the liver (CYP genes). This also often applies to many of the medications used to treat Autism’s co-morbid medical conditions.
