Drug transporter expression in the colorectal epithelium is likely to play a role in the mucosal disposition of antiretrovirals (ARVs) in rectal microbicidal preparations and impact their efficacy in prevention of HIV-1 infection. However, there is
limited information on expression levels available. This study assessed expression of 84 drug transporter genes in human colorectal tissue and representative cell lines pre and post ARV exposure.
