Using the absorption equation of Wagner and Nelson and the integrated form of the equation describing the plot of plasma concentration versus time, formulas were derived which may be helpful in comparing rates of drug absorption. The percentage absorbed over a specified time period and the time required for absorption to be 25, 50, 75, or 99 complete can be readily calculated if it is assumed the basic equations are valid.
