ADME in Drug Discovery



Pharmacokinetics is the term used to describe the movement of a drug into, through and out of the body. The kinetics of a drug can be split into four phases – absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion – also known as “ADME”.

ADME properties directly affect the activity of a drug, therefore, it is important to “optimize” the properties of drug candidate to ensure it is as effective as possible.
