Talk like doctor

February 26, 2007

I recently learned a new word…. “coprophagia” to describe a certain habit of animals (dogs in particular) which can lead to an interesting PK plot (Plasma concentration versus time). This term turned up in the report our ADME group wrote describing the oral PK of a compound that was given to dogs. If you see two nearly equal Cmax’s separated by a period of a few hours you too might have observed “coprophagia”. Interestingly enough, when I “Googled”this term, I noticed that eBay was offering coprophagia at reasonable price.
