Drug disposition is the knowledge about the fate of a drug such as its absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion, known by the acronym ADME and its pharmacokinetics. The pharmacokinetics describes the rates of these processes and of concentration-time relationships. In preclinical and early clinical drug development, information about the factors influencing drug disposition used to predict drug interaction potential, estimate and understand population pharmacokinetic variability, and select doses for clinical trials.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submittedÂ manuscriptsÂ and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the acceptedÂ standardsÂ of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
