Pharmacokinetics

This is the science which describes quantitatively the uptake of drugs by the body, their biotransformation, their distribution, metabolism, and elimination from the body. Both total amounts and tissue and organ concentrations are considered. 'Toxicokinetics' is essentially the same term applied to xenobiotics other than drugs.

pharmacokinetics

The study of what the body does to drugs, in contrast to pharmacodynamics.

Pharmacokinetics
