Most long term treatments follow the oral administration due to its ease and convenience of administration. After oral administration of any drug, the plasma concentration time curve is a function of many simultaneously operating kinetic processes. The steady state plasma concentration is achieved when the amount of drug absorbed equals the amount of drug eliminated. Both amount and rate of drug absorbed may be altered by diseases which in turn alter other kinetic processes. The amount of drug absorbed is simultaneously affected by physicochemical factors of drug and physiological factors that operate in gut which are also altered by the disease state. The present review focuses on the way in which the absorption of drugs is altered in various conditions of gastro intestinal tract.
