In this lecture, Professor Roller reviews the action of enzymes on drug metabolism, singling out Cytochrome P450 and particularly P34A. He defines the two types of drug interaction--drug inhibition and induction—and explains their impact on a drug's effectiveness. Substrates are reviewed. The effect that inhibitors and inducers can have on substrates is discussed, particularly in relationship to a medicine's effectiveness or toxicity. He demonstrates how food, smoking and genetic factors can inhibit or induce the metabolism of medicine by reacting with the substrate.
