It is important to recall that enzyme induction requires time to generate additional enzyme and the timing of when one might observe the clinical effects from an enzyme induction drug interaction varies (often 5 days to 3 weeks) and that the effect will be gradual until full induction is achieved. If co-administered drug doses are increased to compensate for the observed induction one simply needs to recall that if the dose of the enzymeinducing drug is decreased or the drug discontinued completely the doses of the other co-administered drugs can be reduced appropriately as well.

The second step is to provide predictive validity by showing that clinically effective drugs are effective in the disease model. Compounds can then be screened in the disease model, including measuring their ability to increase therapeutic efficacy or improve a side effect. In the end, lead optimization can be performed using the disease model as well as different assays for pharmacokinetic parameters, side effects, and so on. High Throughput Screening Principle of the HTS Assay as an Approach of Mechanism-Based Screening HTS has become an integral part of the mechanism-based, small-molecule drug discovery process.
