Pharmacokinetics

Pharmacokinetics is the study of how the body works on a drug.  These studies include assessing drug delivery, distribution, metabolism and clearance within various species.  Understanding these parameters is essential for determining the optimal dose level, frequency and route of administration in the development of any new drug.  

Pharmacokinetic study capabilities at Covance, Inc. currently include:  models of ocular drug delivery, ocular tissue distribution, metabolism and clearance.
