To determine (oral) bioavailability, the drug is administered by both oral and intravenous route. The adminstration generally is done in crossover manner at different times separated by a washout period. But if the drug follows a time-dependant clearance (and if the washout period is long), then it may affect the results. To avoid this situation, the doses can be administered semi-simultaneously separated by a small time up to 1 hour.
In the current study, the test drug was administered orally followed a constant rate infusion (reference) for 15 mins at 60 mins .
Structural model - Two compartment model with first order absorption and elimination
