One Compartment Model

Renal Excretion and Liver Metabolism Models

Renal clearance can be determined from filtration, secretion and reabsorption parameters according to equation 16.2.1. Each of these rates can be explored further in terms of fraction unbound (f

Equations used in this simple pharmacokinetic model.

**Equation 16.2.3 Elimination Rate Constant as a function of CL _{H}, CL_{R} and V**

**Equation 16.2.4 Absorption rate constant**

**Equation 16.2.5 Concencentration versus Time after a single IV Bolus Dose**

Explore flow limited drug behavior by setting CL_{int} somewhat larger (> 200 L/hr) than the hepatic blood flow rate. Change Q_{H}, fu and CL_{int} to see which parameters have the greatest influence of half-life. Capacity limited drug behavior can be explored by setting CL_{int} to a lower value (< 40 L/hr). Explore the effect of V on drug half-life.

Explore the model by changing the parameter(s). Add additional lines with different parameter values using the Plot Line button.
