Drug metabolism is the study of the movement of the drug. It is also known as xenobiotic metabolism which involves the biochemical change of the drug by an individual or a living organism. In the phase I of the drug metabolism, involves the addition of functional group such as âOH, âCOOH or these functional groups are unmasked if the drug is lipid soluble so that the drug can undergo Phase II reaction. This phase is also called the non-synthetic or non-conjugate reactions. Phase II is also called the synthetic phase, which involves the binding of the drug to endogenous substances which make the drug readily absorbed by kidneys or liver.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
