    Certain xenobiotics are given in the "prodrug" form. Either the human body, or one compartment of the body, or the targeted virus itself metabolizes the prodrug into its active form. The bioprecursor form of drugs is used for a wide variety of reasons, namely: to make drug penetration into the...

    Drug or xenobiotics metabolizing enzymes (DMEs or XMEs) play central roles in the biotransformation, metabolism and / or detoxification of xenobiotics or foreign compounds, that are introduced to the human body. In general, DMEs protect or defened the body against the potential harmful insults...
