1. The clearance is directly proportional to the volume of distribution: where the constant of proportionality, k, is the first-order elimination constant, described later. The distribution and elimination half-lives are shown. 1 The plasma drug concentration as a function of its elimination half-life, t1/2. Churchill Livingstone, Edinburgh. At one extreme, when the whole drug dose reaches the systemic circulation, F takes the value one. Expressed using the differential calculus, this means that the rate of change of the plasma concentration is given by: where k is the first-order elimination constant, as mentioned earlier, and has a positive value.

For instance, the antipsychotic chlorpromazine inhibits calmodulin, a calcium-modulated protein to which Ca2+ ions can bind. Endogenous ligands include acetylcholine, several amino acids, the amino acid derivative γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and serotonin. An example of a drug class acting at such a receptor are the benzodiazepines, the binding of which to GABAA receptors lead to an increased inward flux of chloride ions. Examples of such enzymes are monoamine oxidase (MAO) and acetylcholine esterase (AChE); drugs acting on these enzymes are used in clinical psychiatric practice—for instance, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) are used as antidepressants, while reversible inhibitors of AChE are used in the pharmacotherapy of Alzheimer’s disease.

As indicated in this diagram, the redistribution process is usually a rapid process, with a correspondingly short half-life. 4. 1.
