Pharmacokinetics

Pharmacokinetics is the study of how the body causes changes in medications (drug) and includes analysis of absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion. Cancer patients occupy the full spectrum of liver function, from unaffected to frank liver failure, and this invariably leads to pharmacokinetic variability

When considering a specific application of pharmacokinetics, an important consideration should be some of the other relevant aspects of the area. We will start with some general considerations of cancer chemotherapy to set the stage for the role of pharmacokinetics. This will consist of a brief description of cell kinetics.

  • Absorption
  • Distribution
  • Metabolism
  • Excretion
