Distribution in pharmacology is a branch of pharmacokinetics which describes the reversible transfer of drug from one location to another within the body.
Additional recommended knowledge
The distribution of a drug between tissues is dependent on permeability between tissues (between blood and tissues in particular), blood flow and perfusion rate of the tissue and the ability of the drug to bind plasma proteins and tissue. pH parturition plays a major role as well.
The volume of distribution (VD) of a drug is a property that quantifies the extent of distribution.
