This tutorial deals with basic concepts of absorption processes and links previous tutorials on clearance and volume of distribution to introduce the concept of half-life. The time course of both absorption and elimination are commonly described using a half-life. Half-life can also be used to describe drug accumulation. Understanding the principles underlying the time course of absorption and elimination are essential in pharmacotherapy and clinical pharmacology.
