    Drug interactions

    In vitro studies using human liver microsomes indicated that under the conditions of clinical use, crisaborole and metabolite 1 are not expected to inhibit cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1A2, 2B6, 2C8, 2C9, 2C19, 2D6, and 3A4.
    In vitro human liver microsomes studies for metabolite 2 showed that it did not
    inhibit activities of CYP2C19, 2D6, and 3A4; was a weak inhibitor of CYP1A2
    and 2B6; and a moderate inhibitor of CYP2C8 and 2C9. The most sensitive enzyme, CYP2C9, was further investigated in a clinical trial using warfarin as a
    CYP2C9 substrate. The results of this study showed no drug interaction potential.
    In vitro studies in human hepatocytes showed that under the conditions of clinical use, crisaborole and metabolites 1 and 2 are not expected to induce CYP enzymes.
