MCQs on pharmacokinetics of pharmacology, 5th sem, B.Pharmacy. Here we have provided MCQs for the preparation of B.Pharm and GPAT.


Pharmacokinetics is the branch of pharmacology that deals with the study of what the body does to the drug. This refers to the study of absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME) of medicine in the body. In other sense or words, it is the quantitative study of drug movement in, through, and out of the body.
