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.
"Journal Article is sometimes called a Scientific Article, a Peer-Reviewed Article, or a Scholarly Research Article. Together, journal articles in a particular field are often referred to as The Literature.
Journal articles are most often Primary Research Articles. However, they can also be Review Articles. These types of articles have different aims and requirements. Sometimes, an article describes a new tool or method.
Because articles in scientific journals are specific, meticulously cited and peer-reviewed, journal databases are the best place to look for information on previous research on your species. Without a background in the field, journal articles may be hard to understand - however, you do not need to understand an entire article to be able to get valuable information from it."
