Elimination occurs primarily by renal mechanisms into the urine, and 21 to a lesser extent by mixing with bile salts for solubilization followed by transport into the intestinal tract. However, in many cases there is reabsorption from the intestine, and highly volatile or gaseous agents may be excreted by the lungs. The terms metabolism and biotransformation refer to the disappearance of a drug when it is changed chemically into another compound, called a metabolite. Some drugs are administered as inactive ‘‘prodrugs,’’ which must be metabolized into a pharmacologically active form.

For the usual case of first-order renal elimination, that relationship is linear; thus a creatinine clearance of 50% of normal means that renal elimination of this drug would be expected to operate at 50%, and the rate of drug input should be reduced accordingly. For example, a drug administered 100 mg every 6 hours (400 mg in 24 hours) to a patient with normal creatinine clearance could be given 40 mg every 12 hours (80 mg in 24 hours), if the creatinine clearance decreased to only 20% of normal.
