Bioavailability Absolute bioavailability F – fraction administered dose that reaches systemic circulation Measure? AUC (from t= zero to infinity) Total drug reaching blood directly proportional to AUC IV dosing the reference (F=1.0) (Unless you can’t give it iv!)

Bioavailability Give drug IV measure AUC Give drug extravascularly Calculate ratio Remember Total drug absorbed α AUC F =absolute bioavail. = AUC ev /AUC iv e.g. if this ratio=0.8 then 80% bioavailable
