Example text

The oral route is, of course, the principal enteral route of drug administration. However, two other examples are worthy of note. 0 angina pectoris. Because the stomach is bypassed, acid lability and gut permeability need not be considered. Second, the rectal route can be useful for unconscious or vomiting patients or small children. Although the oral route is certainly the most convenient mode of drug delivery, it is not appropriate for all drugs or all situations. For example, administration of insulin by the oral route results in destruction of the hormone’s physiological activity.

The rate of absorption is influenced by several factors including the drug’s formulation (oil-based preparations are absorbed slowly, aqueous preparations are absorbed rapidly) and regional blood flow. For drugs deposited in the proximity of the peripheral capillary beds of muscle and subcutaneous tissue, lipid solubility is considerably less important than the oral route since even ionized forms of drugs are absorbed with relative ease. The capillary wall in these areas is of sufficient porosity that even drugs with molecular weights as great as 60,000 daltons may be absorbed by passive diffusion.

While compartmental analysis of drug distribution can be informative, it is beyond the scope of this book. For more details on the effect of multicompartmental distribution of a drug on pharmacokinetics, see references in the Bibliography. With the exception of the more complicated aspects of gene delivery methodologies described earlier, after a drug is absorbed into the systemic circulation via a conventional route of administration it is basically transported throughout the body either free or bound to plasma proteins.
