Compartmental Analysis Useful approach – predictive Conceptual framework to understand drug time courses Body much to complex to truly account for all processes, etc Oversimplification, but predictive and useful No model is right, but many are useful
Models Amount in Body = Rate In – Rate Out This is a model = + But this isn’t a very convenient way to do it Rate In Amount in body Rate Out

Body (Distribution?) Mathematically – Compartment: A well mixed unit Transfer occurs between compartments Out Is the body well mixed?? Surprisingly this simple model works! (maybe for ~80% of drugs) Basically if mixing is fast with respect to removal
The Simplest Model Body k out k out – first order constant, % per min A = amount in body (k out can be k elimination , k elim or K or k dA dt = - kout * A FYI- dA/A = -k*dt = -k dt ln A t 0 = -k t t 0 ln A (t) /A (0) = -k*t – k*0 A (t) /A (0) = e –kt FRACTION REMAINING If first time was not zero- ln A t1 t2 = -k t t1 t2 ln A(t1)/A(t2) = -k*t1 – k*t2 = -k(t1-t2) = k (t2-t1) ln A (t1) /A (t2) = k (t2-t1) A (t1) /A (t2) = e –k(t2-t1)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
