Fluvastatin (FLST), a highly hydrophilic and extensively metabolized HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor, is categorized as Biopharmaceutical Drug Disposition Classification class 1 and suggested not to be affected by drug transporters in in vivo pharmacokinetics (PK). However, the Extended Clearance Classification System suggests that FLST, an..
