Apparent volume of distribution during the terminal phase λz following an extravascular dose (Vz/F)

Terminal half-life of the analyte in plasma (t1/2)

Number of subjects with adverse events

Number of subjects with clinically significant findings in laboratory tests

AUC0-12 for Ritonavir (RTV)

Cmax for RTV

Drug concentration of RTV in plasma at 12 hours after administration (C12h)


Minimum age: 20 Years. Maximum age: 58 Years. Gender(s): Both.
