Drug metabolism is a series of reaction. Oxidation, hydration, reduction, hydrolysis are different kind of reactions by which a drug is metabolized. Liver is the major organ where a drug is metabolized. It is a pharmacokinetics process; a drug can be a lipid soluble or water soluble and are excreted by various processes. The Drug metabolism rate depends on an individualâs genetic factor and if that individual is diseased.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
