Pharmacokinetics & Pharmacodynamics

Pharmacokinetics & Pharmacodynamics

Pharmacokinetics studies the body's absorption, distribution, metabolization, and excretion of a substance.

A drug's organ-specific mechanism of action and its biochemical and physiological effects, including effects at the cellular level, are studied by the discipline of pharmacodynamics.

Pharmacokinetics is “what the body does to the drug," whereas pharmacodynamics is “what the drug does to the body.”
