52) and integration gives:     ! , when t 5 N), Eq. 53) gives the steady-state plasma drug concentration (CSS): CSS 5 R VP Á k ð2:54Þ Rearrangement of Eq. 54) gives an equation for calculating the drug infusion rate (R) for a given drug plasma concentration (CSS). In the twocompartment model, the drug dose enters the central compartment (compartment 1) and is distributed rapidly throughout this compartment and then more slowly throughout the tissue compartment (compartment 2). 11). Even somewhat slow IV injection or multiple IV bolus injections will give drug plasma levels that are slightly higher or lower than CSS.

Ka is the first-order drug absorption rate constant. Only a fraction (F) of the drug (DGI) in the GI tract will be absorbed into the general blood circulation, or F Á DGI. F is the drug bioavailability. Thus, here, dDGI =dt 5 ka Á F Á DGI , but as before, dDe =dt 5 k Á DB . Inserting these into Eq. , at t 5 0), DGI 5 D0, but then, DGI will decrease with time: DGI 5 D0 Á e2ka Át ð2:64Þ dDB 5 ka Á F Á D0 Á e2ka Át 2 k Á DB dt ð2:65Þ Integration of Eq. 65) and remembering that DB 5 VD Á CP gives: CP 5 F Á ka Á D0 2kÁt ðe 2 e2ka Át Þ VD Á ðka 2 kÞ ð2:66Þ Cmax and tmax: It is important to be able to calculate the maximum plasma concentration (Cmax), sometimes called peak plasma concentration, and the time it takes to reach Cmax after oral administration (tmax) of one dose.

Stomach emptying time and intestinal motility can also affect drug absorption. The time from administration to start of absorption is the lag time (tL). In most cases, tL is very short, but sometimes it can be relatively long, as, for example, in the case of enteric-coated tablets, which are designed to remain intact until they reach the intestine. 13 Drug absorption from a tablet after oral administration. 14 Drug absorption from the GI tract according to Eq. 59). 15 One-compartment open model after oral drug administration and rapid drug distributed throughout the body.
