Analysis of Urine Data

Student Objectives for this Chapter

After completing the material in this chapter each student should:-

So far we have looked at most of the information we can get from plasma data following a rapid intravenous dose of a drug using a one compartment model. There is another part of the model which can be sampled. Sometimes it is not possible to collect blood or plasma samples but we may be able to measure the amount of drug excreted into urine.

If we collect data for amount of drug excreted into urine it may be possible to determine the elimination rate constant or half-life and other pharmacokinetic parameters.
