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.
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.
