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 Average Plasma Concentration given Area under Curve?
Average Plasma Concentration given Area under Curve calculator uses Average Plasma Concentration = Area Under Curve/Dosing Interval to calculate the Average Plasma Concentration, The Average Plasma Concentration given Area under Curve formula is defined as the ratio of the integral of the concentration-time curve per time between drug dose administrations. Average Plasma Concentration is denoted by C_{av} symbol.
How to calculate Average Plasma Concentration given Area under Curve using this online calculator?
