Apparent Volume of Drug Distribution Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Volume of Distribution = Dose/Concentration of Drug
Vd = D/Css
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Volume of Distribution - (Measured in Cubic Meter) - The Volume of Distribution is the parameter relating drug concentration in plasma to drug amount in the body.
Dose - (Measured in Mole) - The Dose is the amount of drug administered.
Concentration of Drug - (Measured in Mole per Cubic Meter) - Concentration of Drug is the amount of the drug in a given volume of plasma.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Dose: 8 Mole --> 8 Mole No Conversion Required
Concentration of Drug: 83.3 Mole per Liter --> 83300 Mole per Cubic Meter (Check conversion here)
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
Vd = D/Css --> 8/83300
Evaluating ... ...
Vd = 9.60384153661465E-05
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
9.60384153661465E-05 Cubic Meter -->0.0960384153661465 Liter (Check conversion here)
FINAL ANSWER
0.0960384153661465 Liter <-- Volume of Distribution
(Calculation completed in 00.016 seconds)

Fraction of Drug Unbound in Tissue given Apparent Tissue Volume
Fraction Unbound in Tissue = (Fraction Unbound in Plasma*Apparent Tissue Volume)/(Volume of Distribution-Plasma Volume) Go
Relative Bioavailability of Drug
Relative Bioavailability = (Area under curve Dosage A/Area under curve Dosage B)*(Dose Type B/Dose Type A) Go
Drug Purity given Rate of Administration and Dosing Interval
Drug Purity = (Drug Rate of Administration*Dosing Interval)/(Administered Dose*Bioavailability) Go
Rate of Administration of Drug given Dosing Interval
Drug Rate of Administration = (Administered Dose*Bioavailability*Drug Purity)/Dosing Interval Go
Drug Purity given Administrative Dose and Effective Dose
Drug Purity = Effective Dose/(Administered Dose*Bioavailability) Go
Concentration of Drug given Rate of Infusion of Drug
Concentration of Drug = Rate of Infusion/Volume of Plasma Cleared Go
Rate of Infusion of Drug
Rate of Infusion = Volume of Plasma Cleared*Concentration of Drug Go
Absorption Half-Life of Drug
Absorption Half Life = ln(2)/Absorption Rate Constant Go
Drug Rate Entering Body
Absorption Rate Constant = ln(2)/Absorption Half Life Go
Apparent Volume of Drug Distribution
Volume of Distribution = Dose/Concentration of Drug Go

Apparent Volume of Drug Distribution Formula

Volume of Distribution = Dose/Concentration of Drug
Vd = D/Css

What is Pharmacokinetics?

Pharmacokinetics is a branch of pharmacology dedicated to determine the fate of substances administered to a living organism. The substances of interest include any chemical xenobiotic such as: pharmaceutical drugs, pesticides, food additives, cosmetics, etc. It attempts to analyze chemical metabolism and to discover the fate of a chemical from the moment that it is administered up to the point at which it is completely eliminated from the body. Pharmacokinetics is the study of how an organism affects a drug, whereas pharmacodynamics (PD) is the study of how the drug affects the organism. Both together influence dosing, benefit, and adverse effects, as seen in PK/PD models.

How to Calculate Apparent Volume of Drug Distribution?

Apparent Volume of Drug Distribution calculator uses Volume of Distribution = Dose/Concentration of Drug to calculate the Volume of Distribution, The Apparent volume of drug distribution formula is defined as the ratio of amount of drug administered to the concentration of drug. Volume of Distribution is denoted by Vd symbol.
