Rifampicin (RIF) is an essential part of tuberculosis therapy and the pharmacokinetics (PK) of RIF has been of interest due to its non-linear and auto-induction behavior.  RIF acts as a perpetrator, causing clinically relevant drug-drug interactions (DDIs) via induction and inhibition of multiple metabolic enzymes and transporters.
