Hi PharmCat,

» I can be wrong.

No, you aren’t. :-D

» I suppose when we have modified release dosage form there are can be some changes in the PK model. […] So resulting PK profile can be wery surprising.

In many cases a good model is similar to an infusion (i.e., zero order input). The only difference is that instead of the length of the infusion \(t_\textrm{i}\) the end of absorption \(t_\textrm{e}\) is used:
$$C(t)=\frac{f\; D}{t_\textrm{e}\; V\; k_\textrm{el}}\left [\exp (k_\textrm{el}\cdot t^{*})-\exp (k_\textrm{el}\cdot t) \right ]\left\{\begin{matrix}
t>t_\textrm{e} \to t^{*}=t-t_\textrm{e}\\
t\leqslant t_\textrm{e} \to t^{*}=0
\end{matrix}\right.$$Little bit tricky cause \(t_\textrm{i}\) is a known constant and \(t_\textrm{e}\) and estimate.

A central lesson of science is that to understand complex issues
(or even simple ones), we must try to free our minds of dogma and
to guarantee the freedom to publish, to contradict, and to experiment.
