Mammillary model

## One open compartment

model
Assumptions
The drug in the blood is in rapid
equilibrium with drug in the extravascular
tissues
The drug is mixed instantaneously in blood
or plasma
Drug elimination follows first order
kinetics

Multicompartment model
Assumptions
The drug would be transferred to other
compartments (k12, k21, k13, k31)
The transferred lasted when equilibrium is
reached, at this point the change in drug
conc in central comp will be equal to that in
other comps
Equation for Cp vs t curve is a summation
of several equation of first order kinetics

## Two compartment open model

Multi compartment model
k0 or ka, kel, t1/2, C, X, Vd app, and k12,

## Vd app of digoxin is much larger than

body volume
drug must be extensively
distributed into tissue, leaving low
conc in the plasma, thus the body as
a whole appears to have a large
volume, of distribution

## Kel and t1/2 el

Kel is calculated from the slope of the first
order plot of Cp vs t

Since X0 = the amount of drug injected

Then, for an iv bolus:

Example calculations:
After an iv dose of 500 mg, V=30 L, kel = 0.2/hr. Calculate Cp at
2 & 4 hr.

Css
2.303
A semilog plot of (Css-C)/Css vs time yields a straight line
with a slope of kel/2.303, then kel can be calculated.

Application of equations

## For theophylline with a t1/2= 4 hours, the time to reach Css = 16 hr

(94%)
We could calculate how long it might take to reach a therapeutic
conc (10 mg/L).
Since: k0=60mg/hr, kel=0.17/hr, Vd=25L, and

C

then,
0.708 = 1-e-0.17*t, thus 0.292 = e-0.17*t
therefore -0.17*t = -1.231 or t = 7.24 hr

Drugs with t1/2 >>>> (long half life)
the time to reach steady state will be very
