View Full Version : Question from FPGEE for the gurus

11-11-2006, 05:17 PM

I am looking at the booklet I got from FPGEE with my exam papers, can somebody please post how to answer it:

The half life of a drug is 9 days. A single 0.5 mg dose of the drug yields an [AUC](infinity sign) value of 408 ng h/mL. In nanograms per milliliter, what plasma level will result at steady state if this product is given once daily and is 77% bio available?

This question is number 41 in the booklet that was sent with the FPGEE exam papers for this year Dec exam.

Any help is highly appreciated.

This is not a question from web site, it is question 41 page 8 from the FPGEE study guide from FPGEC. I figureed out the solution:

cpss = [AUC](infinity)/T(dosing interval, 24 hrs in this case)
The right answer is 408/24=17

Answer C.
