Bioavailability studies are performed to determine the movement of an active ingredient through the system into the systemic circulation and its action on the target site with minimum undesired off-target side effects.

Bioavailability and bioequivalence studies are useful for studying new drugs for administration and help in establishing an equivalence between early and late clinical trial formulations and establishing an equivalence between formulations used in clinical trials and stability studies.

Bioequivalence studies help to ensure therapeutic equivalence between a pharmaceutically equivalent test drug and a generic or reference drug.

Studies such as bioanalysis help in the drug development process and pharmacokinetics studies, while biomarker testing is performed in disease monitoring, prevention, detection and determination of individual disease risk.

Bioavailability study methodology

Bioavailability may be assessed in two complementary ways, chemical methods and biological methods.

Within healthcare, the bioavailability of a drug from its dosage forms depends on pharmaceutical factors, patient-related factors and administration route, which may vary according to several factors such as selection of subjects, design study, washout period, study design (single dose vs multiple doses), conditions to perform the studies, and pharmacological effects produced by the drug metabolites.
