Impact of Excipients on Drug Absorption clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Excipients are non-drug ingredients added to medicine. The "Excipient Effect on Drug Absorption in Humans" trial at UCSF studies how one common excipient, sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), affects how the body absorbs drugs when taken together. The trial aims to determine if SLS impacts the effectiveness of certain medications.
Excipient Effect on Drug Absorption in Humans
open to eligible people ages 18-64
The purpose of this study is to determine if sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a non-drug ingredient commonly added in drug products, affect absorption of drugs that are given together with the ingredient. Investigators want to find out if drug absorption is different in people taking the drug alone compared to people taking the drug with low and high amounts of sodium lauryl sulfate at the same time.
