A New Pharmacoscintigraphic Technique for the Evalution of Pharmacokinetic Processes

Authors(3) :-Swapnil S. Patil, Lalita B.Patil, Swapnil D. Patil

In last few years for developing new chemical moiety or drug more time and more money is required. Also more energy is required to investigate the new molecule and to study its in-vitro analysis. A lot of time is been invested in study of pharmacokinetic parameters in the body. It includes study of absorption, distribution, metabolisam and excerition. Dissolution study is important for in-vitro analysis of data or release of drug in the formulation and by using blood sampling and urine analysis in-vivo study is carried out. But this method requires much more time for analyzing data. Now we can save our time, money and energy by using a new pharmacoscintigraphic technique. A pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic study of newly investigated drug is carried out by using pharmacoscintigraphic technique. If any dosage form is administered by the body by any intended route then this body is scanned under gamma cameras and thus it can give whole information about rate,extent,site and mode of drug release. A new drug delivery systems are also evaluated by pharmacoscintigraphic technique.
