Dear all,

» » How many minimum concentrations requried for calculation of t1/2 and Kel.
»
» For the estimation of kel 3, for the calculation of t1/2 zero. SCNR :-D

What is the point in calculating kel and t½, if you are using truncated AUC ?

If you are truncating your AUC at 72 h, it probably means that you have a drug with a long terminal half-life. The points you have till 72 hours may not be sufficient and adequate to provide a reliable estimate of kel.
